So as of tonight, I just noticed i've clocked in over 100 hours into this game. 100 hours of watching my little colonists plant things and build things and starving to death and dying in all other sorts of terrible ways. 100 hours of bug and crash reports and screenshots and drinking numerous cups of coffee until 5am because I just want to see what will happen to my colony the next day. Starting over fresh with every patch, just to see what new goodies have been implemented. I just don't know what it is about this game that clicks with me so well. I could be playing Fallout or something right now, but instead i'm waiting for my colonists to build this freaking chapel so I can see it working again. I guess it just scratches that 'city building' itch I always have, as well as having that addictive 'dwarf fortress-y' flavor of randomness that makes me keep coming back, just to see what happens. It also helps that the community is friendly as heck, and that the devs actually 'listen' to the feedback they get, and that bug you reported is magically fixed in the next patch. I think this is the first early access game i've ever been a part of where I honestly feel like i've made a difference in the game in a small way, and it makes me feel eager to keep playing and reporting all the little weird things I find. This game is amazing so far, and I can't wait to see whats in store for the future. Anyway, keep up the good work guys, and heres to another 100 hours.
