    That RimWorld article tells me nothing about the game. All it says–and it takes a long time to do so–is that the author of the game worked on it for 5 years and has finally given up and called the game ‘done’ for no other reason than it’s been 5 years in development.

    I have zero reason to want to play the game. Not only do I come away from that article not knowing what the game is like, but I gained the sense that the developer is tired of working on it. That’s not helpful.

      RimWorld is a colony builder, that, in my opinion, could have been called “done” at any point over the last couple years. It’s like Minecraft in the sense that you could add features to it endlessly (and, thanks to [i<]amazing[/i<] mod support, that will probably happen). So, as a PSA to folks that prefer to avoid early access titles, it's kind of a big deal that it's going to be "done" after the next update (even though it's been very enjoyable from very early on). Rimworld get's compared to Dwarf Fortress a lot, mostly as the best user friendly take on the concept. If that doesn't give you a frame of reference, think of it as a small-scale city builder that focuses on the inhabitants of your village/colony and is second-to-none at dynamically generating hilarious and/or tragic stories to amuse yourself or share with others. I suspect that anyone who's ever enjoyed a game with "sim" or "tycoon" in the the title/description will have a very good time with it (but if not, it could still be worth a closer look).

        You just wrote a better article. 😉

      Fair warning – RimWorld fanboy here.

      Yeah, wow. That article didn’t do it justice, and they hacked Tynan’s original discussions about the topic of calling it 1.0.

      One of the major facts left out of the RPS article is that Tynan didn’t just pick 5 years to call RimWorld “finished” or “released”; it’s that the game now has all the features in it and the gameplay that he originally designed for RimWorld. If I wasn’t steeped in the RW community on Reddit and following Tynan’s discussions, I’d be turned away by that article, too. It makes RW sound like abandonware, which could not be farther from the truth.

        Thank you and drfish. You’re right, I got exactly that impression from the article.

      Its from Rock Paper Shotgun. Last I saw with RPS and Rimworld they were doing a hit piece on the developer and trying to take him down because they way relationships/genders worked in the game didn’t fit someones idea of “social justice.”

      Rimworld is freaking fantastic though.

    Mister baker, I think you could reuse this illustration for Nothing Day Shortbread:
