I kickstarted the game and I was concerned during the development process.
The roadmaps weren’t kept. Certain promises weren’t kept. Backer builds (which are supposed to help iron out problems) were delayed and buggy as hell.The stylistic direction was not what was shown in the first alpha and I found the bugs and performance (synedrion sections only) to be terrible. In short it confirmed my fears about the development process.
I have to point out that there are many things I liked about the game. The physics based combat. The world and story and I generally felt that the game had a future but a disastrous launch.
After playing 8 hours of the released product I was very disappointed and I sent an email to Epic and surprisingly they refunded me. So you won’t get any anti Epic ranting from me.
It’s been several months since release and the first mini DLC has been released.
Do you think the game is worth buying now following several patches?
My main concerns are:
game breaking bugs.
Bugs in general.
performance in Synedrion areas.
Some kind of UI improvement.
This “unfair difficulty curve” that I have heard much about but didn’t have enough time to experience. That was supposedly present in its “finished” form. (I am a competent turn based strategy player)
I would most appreciate any input the community could provide as this was my most anticipated game and it really upset me to refund it as I just felt that I had been used as a bug tester whose submissions were ignored.
Hoping you are having a good Saturday and that the weather is better where you are
