  • Summary: When an ambitious experiment designed to unite the minds of all humanity goes horribly wrong, almost all life on Earth disappears instantly, melting down into the planet to form “the Void”. Years later, a handful of survivors begin to rebuild civilisation, but their endeavours are hamperedWhen an ambitious experiment designed to unite the minds of all humanity goes horribly wrong, almost all life on Earth disappears instantly, melting down into the planet to form “the Void”. Years later, a handful of survivors begin to rebuild civilisation, but their endeavours are hampered by “the Izverg”, giant beasts formed from the residue of negativity and nightmares that now roam the land. Fortunately, engineers discover the ability to develop “projection clones” – new life forms capable of venturing deep into the Void in search of preserved human DNA. It is with these clones that mankind begins the long journey back to its former glory … Expand

    A multiplayer game that may be different than any other game out there, but still capable of engaging gamers to this empty world.

    An original, easily identifiable game, with the aim to show marxist society in a way no other product has. The Tomorrow Children is an interesting social experiment that wants to test teamwork and communication without a language. Even so, along the way it loses enjoyment and surprise factor. Q-Games Studio must launch updates and new content if they are aiming to get a solid fanbase of avid gamers. As for now, it's just a powerful idea with huge potential if they know how to take advantage of it.

    The Tomorrow Children has a unique atmosphere and great ideas, like the cooperation without communication. The early hours will catch us, but the experience ends up stagnating. Original, but not for everyone.

    The Tomorrow Children is weird, wonderful and oddly hollow, lacking neither the addictive hooks to keep you playing, nor the sense of community to bond you to your town. It’s worth a look for its unique visuals and strange, slightly sinister atmosphere, but don’t be surprised if your interest wanes after the first few hours.

    Weird, vague and repetitive, that is the best way to describe this game. The style and atmosphere are awesome, but everything feels like work. It could have been a communist version of Animal Crossing, but at this moment it is definitely too boring to reach that status.

    A visually appealing world, but TTC fails to give any meaningful reason to want to spend time there. [Nov 2016, p.79]

    Good looking, but frustrating, lengthy, messy and ultimately trivial.

    Great game, good fun.

    It's very unique and the art style is awesome. It's sort of stoic and creepy in a refreshingly cool way, if you're into that. I would wait for free to play release comes out. I bought it because I was able to get in on the closed beta and liked it when I got to play it back then. It does a little bit of a better job than in the beta when it comes to explaining things a little better.

    Absolutely lovely. Choose a class, do your job to help build and protect your town in a very stylish environement. It's an unusual coop gameAbsolutely lovely. Choose a class, do your job to help build and protect your town in a very stylish environement. It's an unusual coop game with an excellent art style, atmosphere and soundtrack. This is supposed to be F2P, but for the moment it's only paying early access (so be patient if you want to try it for free). It's very enjoyable, you can mine, build, terraform, find improvements and buy things like weapons, tools, accessories... Oh and by the way, be careful to score i give to this game because i did actually enjoy No Man's Sky - so be warned. Expand

    A good experiment about the social cooperation to achive a common target.

    The atmosphere looks great but the fact of repeating the same tasks every time ends in boring and the feeling of reward lacks.

    A good experiment but not a good game.

The game play loop is centered around resources, most of which need to be gathered in a tedious process. The carrot is the ability to make it less tedious with better tools, skills, etc-- the stick is the real money you need to spend in order to access those game saving items.

    I found the initial few hours interesting and the act of discovery of "dolls" (a very important resource which adds citizens to your town) enticing. Soon after, though, it was clear that the frustration of a tiny inventory, long bus rides, and monotonous activities were going to far outweigh the interesting introductory phase of the game.

    You will get no where without spending real money, and even if you did plop down some bucks and get yourself some quality pick axes, what was it all really leading towards.....

    Overall, Tomorrow Children has some interesting ideas, but its focus on the menial without a worthwhile goal, and its lopsided balance towards real money players, makes it a failed experiment....just like the socialism it playfully mirrors.
