To buy or not to buy

Postby linktt » Sat Jun 03, 2017 9:08 pm

So as my title suggests I am on the fence about purchasing this game. I played through the demo and while I did like the mechanics behind it I did start to get bored at the end of the final demo "level". As it stands its hard for me to rectify the cost for the game based on the so my question is simple, how much different is the full game versus the demo? Is the removal of the game play restrictions and heavy funneling of the demo enough to make the game significantly more fun or should I wait for a steam sale?

[Koub] Merged into the very similar (and a lot older) topic.

First, you can forget the idea of a sale : there won't be sales, the devs have been perfectly clear about that. As the game gets more complete, it may see its price go up, but it won't go down, and there won't be sales.
Now, if I recall corrrectly the demo, you have the ability to see the base of the game mechanics, the whole game is more of everything.
You might also give a look to all the topic I merged yours into, you might find some answers.

...that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler in the mine to suffer the bugs and ammo of outrageous automation, or to take arms against a pollution cloud of crafting recipes and by opposing, not buy. And buy no more, to say we end the heart-ache, and the thousand natural science packs that research is heir to?...

Feck, I'm going to get banished to OT forum if I keep doing this :lol: (If you're missing it, linktt's OP title is above his merged comment and starts page 4 of the merged thread. If you're still missing it, gratz on not being in a North American public high school, and click here.)

I was thoroughly enthralled by the end of the demo. The game got a lot more interesting when I became able to access higher tiers of research, but really the best thing about moving from the demo to full version for me was being able to start a fresh game and run it my way from the beginning.

I guess you have to decide if it's the right kind of game for you. Not everyone is looking for a game in which you build things and solve puzzles, in which combat or war aren't a major aspect of the game, a sandbox where your choices are open-ended and your destiny leads wherever you take it. That's exactly what I was looking for.

Once you've made the decision to purchase the game, I highly recommend you purchase from humble bundle. It'll give you a steam key and the devs get more profit than from buying from steam.

Which is just the humble bundle widget. So it goes through Humble bundle and has the same profits, right?

I don't think the Humble Widget is the same as the Humble Bundle store. Just buy it from the devs, that way you do get a steam key. Buying it from GOG or HumbleBundle might not.

dont buy it unless you have friens, family and/or work school to go to. It will consume your entire life, even your dreams. No seriuously it is amazing great game. But be warned about the addictive side of it :)
