Full game, and playable demo, all in one. If you like it you can purchase a key code from Desura or from the main Lo-Fi Games website listed on the right...
A free-roaming squad based RPG. Focusing on open-ended gameplay features rather than a linear story. Be a trader, a thief, a rebel, a mercenary, a business owner, a doctor, a bandit... the list goes on.
I've been very quiet the last month, and those who know me by now will know this means I'm doing a lot of work for a big update. So it's about time I told you all what is coming next.
I'm finally integrating all the character art that my freelance team of master artists has been working on for the last 9 months or so.
High priority for following updates:
Female characters take time to add, because it requires all the clothing and armour to be adjusted or re-modelled to fit them. That's why I'm getting all the male character models and stuff in place first, it makes things easier for me.
All these changing models are going to be quite a shake-up for your existing save games. You may find a lot of your old clothing and armour doesn't fit your characters anymore. It's being phased out, and in future updates it will vanish completely so I suggest you sell it after the next update.
There will also be "Plastic Surgeon" NPCs in bars, these guys will re-activate the character editor for you so you can modify your existing squad of clones.
I'm also looking at tagging certain gear as "Uniforms". Meaning if you loot a samurai for his armour, and get seen walking around wearing it, then other guys from that faction will be all like "Oi! Where did you get that armour?" which will damage your relations with that faction. In a future update I'll also make it possible to use as a disguise to infiltrate faction bases and stuff. Looted uniforms will also have a lower re-sale value.
The main benefit to doing this is that it puts more emphasis on purchasing or researching and crafting your own armour in order to get the good stuff and catch up with the rest of the world.Update ETA: a few weeks or so.
Highest Rated (71 agree) 10/10
Kenshi is a very ambitious game, it is as of the moment I'm writing this in a very unfinished state, but it's fun to play and it looks like with more love and care, this will be an absolutely great game.
Therefore I'm voting this a 10, I also bought the game to support the (currently) only developer working on it.
Despite the crashes, the content the game has now, made by only a single developer is very impressive in my opinion.
Thumbs up :)

Lowest Rated (8 agree) 4/10
In it's current state, it deserves a one.
But because it's being updated and because its from one dude, it deserves a 4.
When its finally released, hopefully it will be worth a 10.
I don't see why people are just spamming 10 on this, lets be honest. in its current state, it is pretty sh*t. But we can all agree it WILL turn out great. (Don't hate me for the low rate, i'll re-review it with a high score as the game is being made. Or when its finished.)

Unlike AAA developers, the best market for indie developers is the hardcore gamers. They know what they want, and it hasn't been made yet.
