What the hell 2015?! Last year we had some of the most wretched and weak indie early access games I've ever seen and you turn around and give us not only a good year of gaming but a good year for indies?! Oh my god I've found 5 back to back indies that I'm in love with. And this jumped up to my number one spot.
What do you get for this one? A challenge. You don't respawn with all your blocks when you die, you get to earn the right to get those blocks back. There's a complex resource system of harvesting, refining, transporting and sending out. You get to set up complex conveyor systems to transfer your hordes of resources over to the cannons to shoot them into orbit to what I assume is a fleet.
The construction in this game smacks a little of minecraft and a LOT of robocraft. Which is a good thing! If you're going to take inspiration from something make it a good thing. THis game is still early access so there's a lot missing and still a TON present. You can make speedy road warriors that run off hit and run attacks or you can build these GIANT bulldozers to just grind over the resources and suck them up into your hoppers for transport back to base. OR DO WHAT I DID AND MAKE MY ENTIRE REFINING SECTION ON MY BACK. You think sloth's carry algae on their back? Nah man I carry an entire industry on my back.
So for the music its extremely limited so far, but its definitely an irish themed tune so far with the sort of jaunty cheer you'd expect from irish music. Its fun its happy and there's so much color that the music simply brings it all together.
8/10 so far with the possibility of becoming a 9 or even a ten. Try the demo then buy the game because it gets even better.
