I was looking for a TekkitLite replacement when someone pointed me to this game.
4 hours for a normal playthrough? A review with "not recommended" but over 20 hours in the game?
Now I got it, tried it, played through with the normal easy mode (the advanced mode with worse enemies is locked until after the first playthrough).
I loved it.
100%. I love it. It is just great.
It looks great, I love the graphics, I love the sound, you have danger when you do certain things, like being out at night with the starter gear and other much more interesting situations.
The game is easy to come into, it is easy to play, it is impossible to not relax and it is pure fun. 100% fun.
I really have no buts about this game.
You are under water, collect the parts of your broken submarine and want to get back to the surface.
But that is just an excuse to have a look around the great seaworld, to have to go on excursions and to gather a bit of materials to have better equipment. Gathering ore is kind of fun too, because you can - if you want - just put down an extractor and create more extractors. No need for mindless mining.
After just playing through the game once I know I will sometime try the harder mode.
But I know I will VERY SOON try the Sandbox.
I want to create a new base. I want to try to get to the borders of the map.
I want my own fortress under water and my potatoe plantation, not just a corner in my beginner base.
If you play this game you will see the sea world, plants and animals and it looks really nice.
You will hear sounds that are just "wow". Afterwards you think, "was to be expected", but nevertheless, each time I hear a whale making his sound, I am awed.
And I absolutely love the dolphins and their sounds.
Ah, just in case you did not get it: Buy this game if you are able and wanting to relax in a game.
More content would be nice, but as it is, it is perfect for me.
Hints for new players:
- watch your oxygen
- spears are ammunition, not a weapon itself
- get a knife as soon as possible -> plants -> bandages
- don't rush, take your time, look around and have funhttp://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=279032677
