I mean, it's definitely awkwardly crammed it but not TERRIBLE, but this review makes me think this game sounds like it sucks:

it being made by the same folks who made VA-11 HALL-A gives me hope it can't be that bad, but it's giving me Questionable Content vibes so

good lord that dialog. wasn't there some other 3d earthbound-esque rpg in development for 7 years that seemed like it might be a good time or was it always just YIIK?

yeah i've had my eye on kenshi for ages. it seems like something as important as baldur's gate or neverwinter, and would probably get universal acclaim if it was released 10 years ago. but i guess the dude's been working on it for 12 years, which is insane

some of the steam reviews are incredible:
-You try to get in a city on the middle of a desert
-The guards stop you, they need to check your stuff for drugs
-You willing lend them your pack, you know you're clean
-They plant a hash brownie on your bag, you are about to be taken in for possession
-You run as much as you can you are inocent and they have harpoon guns pointing at you
-One of your partners gets his legs torn out of his body by harpoon fire, you are next buddy
-BUT WAIT, A BAND OF ANGRY FARMERS FROM THE EMPIRE SHOWED UP AND ATTACKED THE GUARDS JUST IN TIME
-The farmers and the guards are fighting, you put your crippled partner on your shoulder and run as far as you can
-You need to get a prostethic leg for your partner, that means a trip to the acid plains of the black city
-On your way there it start to rain acid down on you, you are melting as you walk
-Close to the city, an ancient droid hits you and nearly kills you RIPPING YOUR ♥♥♥♥ING LEG in the process
-Your friend died from bloodloss, you should've had some extra bandages on you
-Now you are the one that is dying, the droid ran off, you were playing dead, no time left fren, you gonna have to crawl to the city
-Finaly there, you get a new leg for you. Standing up, you notice you are hungry as a beast, but this is a robot run city, there's no food for you... What will you do?

Kenshi is absolutely the kind of game I find incredibly fascinating but will never play after buying it :(

my 2.5 hours with it last night were absolutely incredible

and yes jeremy would likely love this game, especially with the modding community apparently being very good

i dont even know how to explain it. i think ive compared it to every janky sandbox game i love today. x com. mount and blade. ultima vii/online. rimworld. fallout. operation flashpoint. diablo. it is such a perfect mash of shit that i absolutely love. i wish someone could do this with a real budget but it would be ruined by a real budget.

so so highly recommended for the ppl mentioned and also probably paradox heads

and yeah it's at 1.0 and i dont think going to be worked on anymore outside of modders so if it's something you've been eyeing and waiting to be ready, it's fucking ready. ooooh, it's ready.

TWIIISSTED :twisted:


edit: installed and played this, it's sick and what Quake needs in 2019
I recommend setting centre weapons and using GL_NEAREST_MIPMAP_LINEAR in the console to get pixels/turn off blending (which still looks great because we're all in high res now)
the RPS article gives a good rundown

also I booted up a botmatch in DM4 and wow I forgot how hectic and cramped those levels felt, death comes FAST
