Just finished my playthrough and absolutely loved it! I can’t wait to see how the game develops to full release. I can safely recommend the game as a buy which is pretty rare for my reviews of games in early access.
ART STYLE 5/5
Let me explain why I rated the last 2 so low but still recommend the game:
Right now there’s no true sandbox mode. You have a tutorial and you have a guided playthrough. Both put tasks up on the screen for you to complete. But if you don’t want to build your shop the way those tasks direct you won’t get certain bonuses and those tasks will remain unfulfilled. For me that limits my desire to replay the game until there’s more to do. However I still recommend the game because there’s a good chunk of content even for just the one playthrough.
I did not get the CTDs other reviewers have mentioned. But I did get a lot of UI glitches that made the game unplayable without a restart. Saving and restarting fixed these issues every time so while annoying it didn’t prevent me from playing. If I had the CTDs I would have rated this much lower.
