Man what is it about people releasing these sorts of games while they are still in alpha?
Survival and exploration games are about the thrill of discovering the world and repeatedly failing before you eventually succeed. So why do they release them unfinished? The people who are going to want to play an alpha like this will be exactly the people the game should appeal to most, but they are going to get a bad experience. They learn everything and do all the discovery when the game is still bare bones as hell, and then when its finally release they are either bored of it or they already know how everything works, so there is no spark of discovery.
Sorry for hijacking the thread a bit (The game looks pretty neat) but this has really puzzled me.
