That's too bad. I thought it had what Space Engineers lacked. Thanks for the review.

Great review, as always Ralph, thank you for making it for us.

Thank you too for taking one for the team and persevering with this (throwbacks to AC : Valhalla!).

I can see the positives that you pointed out, and as a developer team, I'd have reasonably high hopes for a better product next time.

But wow….this a well intentioned, absolute fucking mess. I HATED it, just from the review alone.

Base building with no reward for your efforts and just to provide "content" is a shootable offence….and don't get me started on items that brake or fail after a few uses, only to have you trek ALL THE WAY back to your (useless) base to make a new one and then trek ALL THE WAY back for an unsatisfying usage of that item….seriously, WTF were the development team thinking?!?!

I'm pissed that developers think that any of this makes for satisfying game play in this day and age.

I'll be avoiding this like Covid.

Thanks again for making this and being honest. With any luck it'll save dedicated gamers (who actively WANT to support new developers) from making a god-awful mistake and wasting quality gaming time on crap like this.

So what you're telling me is this is two games slammed together after the ideas for the subnautica in space section ran out.

They really needed to stick the foundation of the first 3 acts and expand them not abandon them.

For some reason, this game and review make me want to finally play The Surge 2. Loved the first Surge and now just might be the time to enter round two.

I do agree the item and durability issue is really bad, but i do love the comedy in this game, it probably was just not your type, so no worries there.
But it does indeed sucks if all the stuff u did in the first part of the game does't help u in the second part.

Breathedge was great at the start of early access but release is just so lame

Since there's almost nothing to play right now I already bought it blindfoldedly and I enjoyed my time! but after I saw this review and thought about what I experienced, I see you're right but then again I reminded myself that I don't have to think about it, I enjoyed it, it ended and let's go!
If you're like me who plays videogames with your mind shutdown, well this is for you

You know what can be recommended, Curse of the Dead Gods. Has its issues but its pretty solid 👌

Sounds like the game was too short and the devs artificially added time wasting mechanics to stretch it out. Also seems plausible the devs just wanted to finish the game since the second half is such a departure from the first half. Thanks for the honest review.

Yeah, agreed on the pivot part. I have zero idea what the devs were thinking, turning a Subnautica-in-space game into a cringy walking sim. Also tonally the game would've been SO MUCH better as a serious, immersive survival instead of this annoying, quippy comedy. Too bad.

You're point on Game of Thrones is how I felt after Mass Effect 3s ending.
I played the first two games each 3 times with different decisions, but I only played full paragon in the third then walked away as it all felt so pointless

That suit AI sounds annoying as hell even from just those few lines. Oof.

You should be a contract game tester tbh. Dev teams should chuck money at you to test games in their last phases of polish before release.

Totally unrelated, but I did play Nier based off of your review. It's on Gamepass, so an easy win there. I enjoyed the first play through. Time willntellnifni get to the others. Thanks for the thoughtful analysis you bring to your reviews.

11:09 Sounds like they should have just had some kind of catchall "multi-tool" with modes you could unlock that runs on batteries so you still have a resource you need to keep track of but it still saves up inventory space. Also, how does your SUIT take up inventory you're WEARING it. That's like saying my pants take up space in my pants because I'm wearing them…

I don't think my opinion on a game has 180'd so hard ever. From the intriguing visuals and aesthetic and parallels to Subnautica to the HORRIBLE jokes, music and reveal that the tone of the game is completely shot.

If you are going to do comedy and survival just make it multiplayer, singleplayer survival comedy is an oxymoron and basically can't ever work unless you go full goofball from the very outset and even then survival relies on non-verbal cues so I still don't think it's a good fit.

Honestly I would recommend it, maybe at least in sale. Yes, there are flaws. But it is not a bad game. And as pointed out in video, these devs are extremely talented. So if you can overlook flaws and enjoy what is to like here, I would definitely show some support and provide as much of a feedback as possible. That will give them resources, knowledge and lessons. And even if SkillUp seem to really not enjoy most of the game, i think there is a lot to like. Buit as with everything, it´s all very subjectional.

The developers should take a point out of Subnautica's book. They could still rework this game. It should be survival space base exploration.
