"A huge open world, sandbox, survival similar to Don't Starve, but with some RPG elements. Has a few rough edges, but can still suck you in."

THIS GAME IS INCOMPLETE AND DEAD

TL:DR
Same old story: Game with a lot of potential gets abandoned because the devs lost interest or didnt make enough money or something, so they declared their unfinished buggy game "finished" and quit working on it.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I bought this game last year. It showed a LOT of potential. It was fun for a bit too. Kind of like Dont Starve, but more RPGish. I dont remember if it was officially Early Access, but it should have been because it was in a "late beta" is playable but kind of bare bones and needs some bug stomping and balancing and the devs promised more content.

So I sat back and waited after playing for a bit and then getting frustrated and annoyed at the incompleteness. Seemed like it was worth waiting for.

Until the Devs declared they didnt get enough sales so the game would no longer be updated because they had to get jobs and couldnt work on it full time.

Then work on it part time? Nope. Its dead now.

They couldnt even be arsed to finish their game, when its mostly complete and just needs some polishing.

Development has stopped - Been inactive for god knows how long now, was looking forward to seeing this game finished but unfortunately all I got from it was a lighter wallet and a lite RPG Hack N Slash.

The game is abandoned by the devs that made it. I would not recommend buying. They also refuse to allow modders to continue the game. So, if you buy it ...you wasted your money. Another grab cash scheme in Early Access.

It's a Great time killing game but.....

After playing 28 hrs of the game I have pretty much gotten to the point where not sure if I can recommend this game anymore. It has graphics glitches. starting to feel to easy. Even On hard setting. I can kill things really really easy with melee. I collect coins like i've robbed a bank.

It's a fun time killer. Has alot of potential but as it stands. Not sure. There needs to be alot added. Like better currancy and vender's. Tiered tools. No matter what materal after a certain point they just seem to go the same speed but last longer, thats it. You would think higher materials would go thru things quicker. Nope not the case.

Devs haven't posted to the forum since last year. It's been 3 months. Getting the feeling they've abandoned it.

UPDATE: Game has been abandoned by the devs! their post here---> http://steamcommunity.com/app/314380/discussions/0/611704531883192114/

Dead game. Not sure if I bought as EA or full game, but it should have been considered late beta. Good bones, just needs a more content but is it gonna happen? Nope, Devs have taken their money and run. Shame considering the potential here but that's an old story at this point.
