For me, the amount of hours I have already put in, playing it more than any other game I’ve played in the last 10 years, and just loving everything about it… the game feels done. I am excited for new content. Like, the idea of bear traps or house traps really excites me. Not because I feel like the game is undone, but because it feels complete already and I just want content updates. I know players are reporting bugs and the artists/devs behind the game can always critic their own work and never feel finished, but I just don’t see it. How much can I play one undone game before I realize, “this game is more complete than any game I’ve ever played before.”
I feel like this game can be in alpha forever, as it has endless options. More building types, more wall types, arches, mud homes, igloos in the snowy mountains, digging, caves, economy, city building, wars, etc. It feels like we are at the beginning of an amazing idea but the mechanics of the game feel done. I’ve never signed on and thought, “Oh my god, this game is so undone.” I’ve always, even the first time playing it, felt, “Wow, they can add so much stuff to make it way better. Just imagine if they had different types of buildings you could build…”
It’s just a matter of adding more content and molding the game into what each of us has thought up in our own minds. The biggest “bug” I have dealt with as far as making the game totally unplayable is the hacking. Not complaining, but seriously, for me, that is the biggest factor in why I feel this game’s experience can be totally ruined.
