Survivors of Ragnarök is a city-building-management-survival game inspired by Dwarf Fortress. Manage, create, and survive through dynamic and deadly worlds. Losing is a fundamental core aspect of design.
This has been in alpha for years and is still a buggy, unplayable mess. The creators need to stop adding content and get the core game working. The UI is a joke (the Esc key should NOT shut down the game) and it crashes and hits game breaking bugs on such a regular basis, I don't think I've ever been able to play for more than 10 minutes. Oh, and declairing losing as a "core game mechanic" is not an out for crappy balance and design. Also, I think most of the 10/10 rating are fake.
1.) No transparency on what edition you get (cheaper editions contain unplayable earlier versions).
2.) No development or status updates from the developers.
3.) No Updates for a long time.
4.) Not clearly visible that developers obviously have no time to develop the game any further.
5.) Promises of more feedback and communication are constantly made by developers but I have not seen one of the promises (more feedback and communication) kept. The only posts from devs are promises about more feedback.
I see that there could be a lot of potential in this, but I honestly don't see the devs doing anything with it. I understand there's a small development team but I haven't seen a useful update in far too long. I can't play for more than five minutes before either the whole game closes or I'm slaughtered by enemies I have no means with which to fight.
This could be an extrememly popular game if it only had devs who care about it. Even if it had been free I still wouldn't feel I got my money's worth.
I was impressed when I read the info on this game, it looks like it could be a good game... However the devs are retards and do not work on problematic areas they are just trying to add a bunch of stupid content before fixing the old garbage. So I am giving this game a 1/10 becuase of bad customer support and I hope one day they fixd the crashing at startup screen issue before they do finally release this piece of crap..
