In that dullness, you can't help but begin to see the gears and cogs in the machine. Interesting things happen, but when the characters themselves already feel so artificial they rarely take on the life required to make me believe in the stories unfolding. I'm not watching a drama, but the chaos of a petri dish. Which isn't to say RimWorld doesn't have its moments or there isn't fun in its attempt to tell engaging stories, but it doesn't entirely live up to its promise.
RimWorld is a really fun sandbox survival experience and is a great place for folk who feel like Dwarf Fortress has too big of a learning curve or is too fantasy heavy. The lack of polish detracts from the experience but if you don’t mind a little bit of poking about to figure things out there is a lot of fun to be had here. Just watch out for those raccoons, they bite.
After years in Early Access, Ludeon has released an utterly brilliant space colony simulation. It's the kind of game that you'll wake up thinking about, that you'll sink untold hours into, that'll run in the background while life goes on all around you. If you can get past the initial resistance offered by its complexity, a spellbinding and intoxicating experience awaits.
