Difficulty


Well, The game mechanics in general is really easy. And if you have played Terraria it should come natural to you. But the progression level is a bit hard to figure out. I feel there is a progression ladder that is a little bit tricky to get a hold on. But once you understand how it works, you are on your way to gold and glory. There is also some bossfights that can be a bit tricky and hard as well. And there is a lot of joy to be had with the bosses. And the bosses can be taken several times. Its almost as a small dungeon from world of warcraft. With some cool secrets in some of them or all of them.

Also keeping your belly full and keeping your food from going bad, could also be a chore to manage if you play on survival. The game has 3 difficulty settings:

  1. Casual – No need to eat and no death penalties
  2. Survival – Eat to survive, drops items on death (I recommend this settings)
  3. Hardcore – when you die your character stays dead!

Fun factor


I have had a ton of fun playing this game, and I enjoy almost all of the aspect. The only thing I would put my finger on is that it is a 2D game like Terraria and sometimes I miss the 3rd dimension. Also when you die, and lose all your stuff. It could be really hard to find your stuff again. So I hope thy will add some sort of death pointer in the future. But the thing I like the most in this game; is the building aspects, as you can build your own colonies and decorate your spaceship. You can also upgrade your spaceship as time goes by. Also The multiplayer aspect is fantastic. And playing with friends makes the game that much more sweeter. I also liveryman’s it some days ago. So if you like to see the long recap of the livestream? Here it is:

 

There is also the character creation witch gives you the option to chose from 7 different races. And all the races has there own ship. But the storyline I find a little bit pale. But the amount of planets and moons and star systems you can explore makes the game almost an endless game.

So my advice to you is bring a couple of friends and fuel up your space ship and boldly go where no one has gone before!
