    Breathedge is one of those games you can play casually at your own pace and doesn’t require long consecutive amounts of time to play. Sparring 15-20 minutes here and there is all that’s required for a steady progression through the game but still very enjoyable if you’ve got ample time up your sleeve as well. I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys easter egg styled dad jokes or wants something oddly rewarding to play at a casual pace.

    It’s not very helpful at the start, and at times the comedy falls flat. But stick with Breathedge and there’s a surprisingly deep mechanic entwined with a Schafer-esque story adventure.

    Awesome when it’s about visual interface and immersion, but it has several design mistakes that slow down game’s rate. Luckily, losing oneself floating through the space it’s worth it while we unlock extras. It’s also a video game with many doses of humor and easy to keep players hooked to the main plot.

    Breathedge has a lot going for it in its well-loved Early Access sandbox portion. But when it becomes more of a walking simulator, things take a turn. Regardless, it's a funny game that's still worth playing for anyone who enjoys the concept and the humor. But I can't help but think that many will be disappointed by the later parts of the game.

    In a nutshell, Breathedge is a Subnautica in space. While it’s not as good as the Unknown Worlds Entertainment’s masterpiece and would benefit from a better story, it’s still a solid survival game, real pretty and spiced up with absurd humor. [05/2021, p.58]

    While there’s some comfort in the repetitive routine of mining and seeking refuge back in your space liner, as you gradually chip away at your objectives, its endless gags and space jokes do get tedious very quickly.

    Try not to suffocate… or die of boredom. Breathedge's concept of survival crafting in space may be good, but it just isn't fun.

    A good game that has only gotten better over time. If the team had been bigger, as well as the budget of the game, it would have been even cooler.

    This is the best loot game in space. An excellent storyline and tons of sparkling humor from the developers add a lot of fun to the gameplay. For the irony of the developers, a separate respect!

The game gameplay and game mechanics is super fun and addictive and the always remaining threath of running out of air is one of the best designed threats in a video game. The threat is never hidden.

It has a very slow learning curve, however even after half way through the first chapter, when you learn the mechanics it starts to get very enjoyable.
    It reminds me of playing Zork from too long ago .It is not like playing a modern game that holds your hand. I appreciate that.
    If you keep at it and learn the mechanics and use the info you have, it is not I have found it to overly difficult but it is not a cakewalk. . It takes a lot of trial and error to find the right way to get where you need to and still survive. Just be sure to save frequently otherwise you are in the tank.
    Isn't that the point of a survival game?
    I think it is balanced well. Others may disagree, however this type of game rewards those that can deal with a ton of failure when first starting out.
    If you want to conquer this game it will take a lot of time to find optimal paths to the places you want to go.
    At the beginning it is a grind, to be sure. It starts very slowly as you learn how to live in this inhospitable environment.
    Stay with it. It keeps getting better..
    These are games that are worth my money..

    Игра очень плохая, начнем с того что оптимизация даже на пк хромает, не говорю про плохой сюжет, такое ощущение что его писали первоклашки.Игра очень плохая, начнем с того что оптимизация даже на пк хромает, не говорю про плохой сюжет, такое ощущение что его писали первоклашки.
