It's something between Minecraft & State of Decay or DayZ. The crafting is becoming better with every update. World generation is not added but planned.

    The first thing everyone notices about this game is the price. But what is early access?

    Early Access is commonly accepted to mean you are paying the developers and funding the game development. You are not "buying" the game but rather helping to further the development and help pay bills.

    So is the price something that should cause you to forget this game?

    Answer: Yes & No. It depends how you think about Early Access. With the description above, I see no room for complaints, you are supporting development with your wallet. As a reward you get the game free when it is released. Since you also get the game early, as in right away, you also can help bug test and report issues to the developers.

    So yes, the money is a high price to pay. Was it worth it? Yes. I would buy a second, third or fourth copy if I had friends/family interested in playing.

    Will this be the next Minecraft craze? It could be, but the price holds it back, the multiplayer in general is a disaster unless you play with friends only.

    Multiplayer is what Minecraft multiplayer would have been if there were not plugins.

    Now, the building in this game can be hard, it is what I had always hoped for in other crafting/building games. The blocks all have physics, which means buildings can fall and crush your face. But as in real life, if you provide the proper supports you wont have a problem.

    The mining in this game leaves much to desire, it's rather slow, and is based on Stamina & Tool damage points, which drain from every hit. Water refills stamina but your tools will require repairing or replacing.

    The good point with mining though, there are not caves to search, you just start digging down and you will start finding ores. Which is great, it's not realistic in anyway but is a improvement over Minecraft's mining in a lot of ways, (which was not realistic either.)

    Overall you have both Multiplayer and Single-player and both are great in there own ways.

    You have many options when starting a game and they can be changed at anytime before starting one of your saves.

    If you don't want to play with giant wasps and hordes of zombies tearing through your walls ready to eat you, you don't have too.

    Play in a war torn landscape as the soul survival or join MP and find other survivors and rebuild civilization.

    Build a giant bunker underground or a giant castle. Build a wall with many traps and defenses surrounding a small town and build a community. It's all up to you and as any role-playing game with unlimited replay-ability it is up to you to find the fun. It's yours for the taking.

    I for one hope to see you soon.

    Cheers,
    Tobias

The game has changed a lot over the years. I know a lot of people that also love the game. Yes it's still in alpha and it does have bugs and glitches, but what alpha game doesn't. The devs work on fixing the problems and giving us more to look forward to in more and more updates. Expand

Zombies areThis is Minecraft (with much better graphics) combined with "The Walking Dead". Even in the Alpha state it is quite addictive. Zombies are lethal at night. So the day time is a mad dash for resources and base building/repairs before the zombie horde comes to tear you apart. Its a rather brutal starting out set difficulty to Noob level and make the day night cycles 50 minutes until you get a feel for it. Even then its a challenge to stay alive. Expand

I mean, one more block, let me repair my gun, holy s&#( theres a zombie in my fortress kind of fun.

    This game has a ton of promise and I dont regret purchasing it, even if its in Alpha.

    PS For real excitement, turn the sound up, lights off and dont pay attention while you are crafting. Just sayin...

People such as myself whoFrom the POV of a kid in his mid-teens with nothing better to do with his time, this game is extremely entertaining. People such as myself who are fans of things like The Walking Dead, Dayz, and the zombie genre in general will most likely enjoy this game. I've spent 300+ hours playing this game over the course of 2.5 years, so I have seen this game change drastically. For example, you used to be able to find tons of guns and ammo all over the place. But now, it is extremely difficult to find enough gun parts to actually create a whole gun (let alone find the schematic for the gun). Looking at what the game currently is and not looking at what the game used to be, it is pretty good. Building bases is very entertaining, crafting weapons (specifically, those extremely rare guns) makes you feel great, being able to chop a zombie's head off in one hit is super rewarding, and playing with friends or even just on multiplayer is fun as all hell. All in all, this game is great for people who like the zombie genre and are looking for a source of entertainment. Although, buy it from steam so if you end up not liking it, you can refund it (because it seems that a lot of people are mixed about it).

    From the POV of a nit-picky person, this game is not the greatest. The graphics are very bad for a game that is hard for a rx480 8GB to run. It seems as though, from watching the many update sneakpeaks over the years, that the devs are more focused on adding unnecessary (but still pretty cool) things into the game, rather than improving what they already have. The main turn off for many of the game's players is the lack of good graphics, so the fact that the devs aren't putting that as there 1st, 2nd, or 3rd priority is a little bit strange. The other strange thing about the game is that in the 2.5 years I've owned it, it hasn't left alpha stage yet. The fact that it is still in alpha is sort of ridiculous because, in my opinion, it was beta worthy in alpha 10 (when they made the biggest change yet). If not alpha 10, then alpha 16 as it is apparently going to be the new biggest change to the game.

    On sale for $10, this is worth it just to play around with. At the full price it is not. This is far from ready for release, but the devsOn sale for $10, this is worth it just to play around with. At the full price it is not. This is far from ready for release, but the devs are already talking about wrapping it up next year. TFPs were expecting Telltale to do a lot of patching for them, when TT handled the port to consoles. They were wrong. So the game is still unoptimized, and each patch is just adding more unoptimized content. With most of the team putting out content at a pace that strongly suggests that only the team lead is full-time, this is a wait and see. If they keep at it for another two years they could have something worthwhile in two years, at their current pace. But if they call it quits in 2017, there is little chance it will be release-worthy.

    I had absolutly no fun playing this game. I was gifted this game and I really didn't want to be ungrateful, but this game is so awful.I had absolutly no fun playing this game. I was gifted this game and I really didn't want to be ungrateful, but this game is so awful.

    First of all, the game is so disgusting to look at. I hate to criticize a game based on it's graphics, but there is nothing pretty or nice about this game. Everything is so low quality and disgusting. I turned up the graphic settings, but then the game runs like complete garbage.

    The combat is the sluggish and all around horrible. You swing something and the zombie, moves closer and hits you, meaning you can't actually win combat without using the garbage bow or guns, which takes forever to get which I didn't even know was actually in the game since the game's progress moves at a crawl.

    The game is horribly optimized. I've only played for 6 hours and it crashed over 5 times. My items and even some stuff i built just straight up disappear.

    Multiplayer is unplayable. I don't have the greatest internet, but I get like 100 ping on a good game, this I get 900 or something like that when I try to play on a friend's server.

    I guess I can see the appeal if you have the patient of a saint and can stand the first 3 hours that move at a crawl and you can play and actual video game rather than the unfinished trash that is the first hours of this game, since the people who made this game have no idea how to actually make a video game and probably spend most of the money they get from this game on hookers and cocaine.

    Not Good/10
