AnIn all my years of gaming and all the games I've played I can say that this is the absolute worst launch of a game I've ever experienced. An abysmal festering trainwreck that grants more entertainment value from reading angry posts in the forum than it does from the actual game.
It looks like crap, plays like ass and has more bugs than a Louisiana swamp. To call it a beta would be dishonest, that it's being sold as a finished product is really fraud. I'd say pre-alpha is the most accurate way to describe the state of this game.
If all of that doesn't scare you off then please at very least go browse the community forums first before you go to buy this game and see what the general consensus is about the state of the game by owners. I won't even say players because hardly anyone can even play it for any significant length of time.
They are issuing patches literally on a daily basis currently but it still has a long way to go and I don't have the most faith in these developers to ultimately end up with a good product at some point down the road. Just today they posted a note regarding the last 'patch' that actuality made things worse about how the "game engine is sometimes a bit unstable and ate the last patch alive by producing a horrible mess".
Some of the "fixes" are also requiring that a new game be started all over from the beginning yet the game is being sold as a finished product and nowhere is there a warning you may need to start all over and loose all your progress (assuming you are lucky and masochistic enough to actually make some progress) due to all the patching.
This game is a textbook example of why none of us should be pre-ordering or buying released games without first checking to see what the general community consensus is. It's extremely obvious that no one at Valve even booted up the game to play for 10 seconds and the developers admit it was released unfinished. Yet here it still sits in the Steam store being sold as a finished product.
The old Roman concept of Caveat Emptor holds very true here.… Expand

It's very well put together with short scenarios you can equally play in small bursts or long addicted sessions. Free play modes are also available.
Basically what you do is manage a resort which is easier said than done at times. The sense of humor in this game is quite funny and there's even voice acting with little story snippets that give you just enough to want to know more.
If you like the sort of time management/town management genre and are looking for something light and fun I would definitely recommend Coconut Queen. I give it 5 Coconuts out of 5!… Expand
