    While there are niggles to the experience, from relatively frequent frame rate drops at the start of each cycle and the AI occasionally getting confused to the game outright crashing (which is naturally quite frustrating), these issues seem like the aftermath of Early Access. With the game having a decent swell of community support and the developers just as keen to keep improving, Oxygen Not Included appears to be going onwards and upwards – or whatever direction you fancy, really.

    Oxygen Not Included is a challening, complex survival building game for creative tinkerers and fans of automatisation.

    Funny, clever, and extremely complex mix of management simulator and survival game that manages to make abject failure almost as entertaining as success.

  1. Most of all, the simulated personalities, habits and appearances of the dupes themselves feel like complete wasted effort.

    A bonkers survival sim where watching things fall apart is half the fun.

I find myself scrawling designs for cooling systems on napkins. I'm at nearly 1000 hours and the game hasn't even been released yet. My 1000+ cycle base is great and all, but the itch to roll the dice and start again is overpowering... Very well crafted game, very engaging and comedic, but it's the depth of the interconnected imperfect systems that become the game in the long run. Well made, well made. Expand

I failed so many times as have no idea what Iam supposed to be doing.

    I had to look up guides to be able to have my colony survive.
    I made the mistake of using the microbe musher for food as I thought that's what you are supposed to use. You are actually meant to research and farm as soon as possible.

    I really dislike being shoved into a game blindly and feeling totally overhelmed and having no idea.

    So I rate the game 5/10 for lack of helpful guidance that I think the game needs. There should be a third game mode called Newb mode where it has a proper good tutorial. And those that don't want help or like figuring it out themselves can choose the other modes.

    I can't recommend as I find the game way too complex which causes the game not to be fun for me.

    Game learning curve is basically a up arrow.
