Here's my first impression - it's not a crafting game. No, sure there are crafting elements, but you should be aware that mostly it is a "metroidvania" game where you explore the world. It's core is action. Jump, shoot, dodge. You gather resources by finding it in the wilds and by killing enemies.
Your first weapong is a "pew-pew blaster" (which is actually just a "pew blaster" because of it's fire rate). I've found hunting complicated with such a tool. And I've tripped into first boss after 10 minutes of game. 700 hp vs 20 dmg per shot...
Also - you have lives. Once you lose all of them you die? Dunno.
The controls are responsive and the aiming/shooting process done really good. And the game works smoothly, but to do so I had to play with screen resolution. The game eats a lot of resources because it's a procedural full destructible world.
TL:DR As much as I've seen I would recommend this game to those players who love Edge of Space, Signs of Life, maybe Starbound AND want to see something completely different
. Nice metroidvania game with a touch of your regular sandbox crafting game. My personal score so far is 7/10. Cheers.
P.S. Will update the review with my progress through the game.
