    Stories, stories, stories. RimWorld sets you up for an ever changing game in which only your engagement remains the same, potentially for hundreds of hours. And when you’re done with the vanilla version of RimWorld, there are thousands of mods that enhance or change the game in such a way that it is all fresh again. I am in awe of RimWorld, and it deserves a Big Fat 10 out of 10.

    Rimworld is a new standard in survival/strategy sims, and has emerged from early access with grace. Now the REAL fun can begin...

    The diversity of environments significantly enriches the game and challenges experienced players in new conditions every time. It’s a hellishly good game – for me an addiction that makes me go back to it and reach for more and more. [13/2018, p.84]

    This strategy game offers survival and business simulation in one package. With the player learning from trial and error, numerous unpredictable events bring additional challenges to solve, while enriching the story at the same time.

    Successful mixture of strategy, tower defense, survival sandbox and sci-fi story generator with a guaranteed high replay value.

    A satisfying colony-building sandbox with a lot of replayability that suffers from a lack of polish in the UI. A great aesthetic and quirky sci-fi take on the genre mean there is a lot to like here, it just takes a little digging to get there.

    An imaginative management game but a weak story generator.

If you want a truly landmark game that can run on almost any computer and provides a nearly limitless amount of entertainment, you don't need me to tell you to pick this one up. Congrats to Tynan (the main dev) and the rest at Ludeon! Expand

    El mejor simulador de supervivencia interplanetaria de la historia. Justo por encima de su padre Dwarf Fortress, Rimworld su descendiente nosEl mejor simulador de supervivencia interplanetaria de la historia. Justo por encima de su padre Dwarf Fortress, Rimworld su descendiente nos ofrece una gran jugabilidad combinada con miles de mods y sistemas aleatorios que nos absorveran durante miles y miles de horas.
    Basta con ver las rewievs en steam de jugadores japoneses que solo han comprado este juego y no han comprado ningun otro por el simple hecho de que no tiene fin.
    Cada partida es una experiencia nueva, llevada al limite donde tu objetivo sera que los colonos sobrevivan y progresen para escapar del planeta. Cada colono tiene una personalidad la cual perjudicara su estado de animo hasta el punto de poder causar la destrucción de toda la base.

    La cantidad de opciones, aleatoriedad y jugabilidad combinada con un sistema de gestión perfecto el cual el jugador puede adaptar a sus gustos permite que rimworld sea ese juego de 10 desarrollado por una sola persona y una comunidad de fondo el cual no se lleva ningun GOTY por desconocimiento de las grandes industrias analfabetas del entretenimiento donde poner a un tio repartiendo cajas con cinematicas es el nova mas.

    Si quieres pasar horas y horas y horas sin comprar ningun otro juego, te gusta la simulacion interplanetaria combinada con gestion y construccion desde 0 de un imperio. Este es tu juego sin lugar a dudas

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I love the complexity of this game. It feels, like everything matters. Each character you get, each resource, even time. You need to think, use your area to last bit and be prepared for everything. Got something about 200+ hours, still no save with end game. But looking towards finishing this awesome masterpiece. Oh, and not to forget, if this game look empty for you, there are mods, so enjoy everything you want. Expand

This game has taken too much of time since I purchased it. Though my playtime has been limited over the final patches due to other games taking up my time.

    That being said RImworld is still a truly amazing game. The opportunities available are staggering and sometimes downright unethical as hell but no matter what, you'll find a way to have fun. Want to live off plants alone in a vegetarian society? Sure. Want to create a medical colony that heals their allies with the organs of unfortunate raiders? Why not! The scenarios this game creates are frankly the best part of it.

    It is not a great looking game to be fair. A grey block interface, blob pawns and rather basic sprites don't seem that appealing on the surface, but it is clear the devs were putting the work into where it was needed and that is entirely the mechanics and other features. On top of the main game it has been very well optimised for mods meaning that even if you get bored of the standard gameplay there is a wide variety of community made expansions to help expand gameplay further.

    So yeah. Buy Rimworld. Its good.
