I've already told myself I'd stop playing. I lied...

Honestly, this game is amazing. I play a lot of Don't Starve, and this is basically the same as the others. I love this game. The resource gathering is either relatively easy or actually fun (unlike other resource gathering mechanics *cough cough* Crashlands *cough cough*). It has a good fighting mechanic as well. Enemies spawn is specific areas and are usually pretty difficult. The characters have a lot of diversity between them, except for the fact that literally all of their names start with the letter "W". It also doesn't feel like my character is my crutch, which is something I hate about games with multiple playable characters. It has a good balance between resource gathering, fighting, bosses, trying your hardest to survive, making a base, exploring, and of course, not starving. Each mechanic, including the crafting, goes hand and hand. The humor is dark, just how I like it, and most importantly, it's fun! The only thing I hate about this game is the controls, which I hate less and less the more I play. It's great to those who enjoy high quality games. And to answer your question, yes, it is worth the $5.00 price tag.

Game is senseless but addicting

This game has no point. You run around gathering and looking for items, building contraption and weapons, and doing your best to avoid what I have now concluded is almost inevitable death. The list of items attempting to kill your character includes: hunger, insanity, weather, darkness, monsters, pigs, frogs, spiders, and cyclops resembling birds. Early on, the game requires you to play the role of a hunter-gatherer to survive, but eventually allows you to become a farmer for your survival. Despite the difficult and monotonous nature of the game, the more I play the game, the more I want to play. Each time you go play through and meet your ultimate death, you can develop a different hopefully more effective strategy for survival in the game. I have found that making plans on what you want to accomplish is the best chance at survival in the game. Anyway, this game is great despite having no storyline and being a nonsensical game overall. I give it four stars instead of five, primarily because it has no story and very little in the way of instructions.

Read creators! For this and Shipwecked

When I play this amazing game with obstacles, mobs, character, strategy, and quotes I find a few things off such as, Shipwecked and RoG needs to be merged, I found the seaworthy and I did tap on it finding what was wrong and I found that, you need the seaworthy mechanic in the actual game I will love to have this added and will constantly tell people about the game.

Things that need to be fixed, Mac tusk blow dart shoots and the dart has a missing name, a super rare bug happens when an axe or pic axe breaks it may say 0% and when you tap something the item is used for it will instantly crash the game. When beefalo are in heat in a big heard for the first time (day 21 winter) they don't produce babies. There needs to be a way to tell that shaved beefalo are in heat because I always find myself losing health when I shave a beefalo that later on then goes into heat.

Thank you for your time reading this and I appreciate you! Do everything you can but most importantly don't starve! Lol (no hard feelings or anything)
