December 6th

Even in its ascii format I spent a week in Hamburg once playing it almost 24hrs a day

The finest story telling game rivalled maybe by CK

It’s one of those should I/shouldn’t I but once you do you’ll have a hard time getting back out games

Sounds like it could be worth a look.  :bigthumb:

It's a fantastic game. I also lost many hours playing it years ago. If you have ever played Prison Architect or Rim World, they are similar style games. It will be nice to have it packaged through Steam for easy installation.

After hearing about it all these years I look forward to trying it. I spent some time with RimWorld a while back and it was a good game.

I will be getting it at some point. However, the little time I spend playing PC games these days is an effective delaying action for a few post-release updates to happen.

For the first time in a very long time there’s 3 new releases I would get - it’s not the money it’s the time and deciding which one will be more rewarding for the time invested in it

Never played the original but have always heard about this game and how amazing it is. And now you fine gentlemen are suggesting I consider purchasing said game?

6750 and overwhelmingly positive

part of me likes to think thats new players wowed by the game

most of me thinks thats loyal players who have been playing it for years just giving their game a thumbs up

of the 3 released yesterday, the one i wanted is performing poorly, the one i wanted next is booming and the one i had never heard of is also doing well
