The perils of the Hype Train…

Posted on 03/09/15
The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

It's like Oregan Trail roguelike set in the finnish iron age!

If you like roguelikes you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not try this game. It has been in development since 1992! Out of the few roguelikes I've played (only ones with graphics) this is by far my favorite so far. It's very time consuming, and heavy on keyboard commands. However it's really not that hard to get into. After about 8 (give or take) hours of playing I've got a lot of the shortcuts down.

My first guy is a fisherman. I chose to start out in his native territory on an island seperated from the main landmass. The island I'm on unfortunately only has three settlements, and I can't aquire a iron axe to progress with making stuff my guy needs. No villagers on the island have anything to trade, and no shops either. I'm boned. Fortunately some traders from another tribe have came onto the island (indefinitely) and if I could just kill some animals to skin them, and tan their hides (if my guy was good at tanning) I could trade for an iron axe (only way to get iron axes...well besides killing). The traders roam in packs though, so trying to kill them would be a death sentence. I would be better off trying to kill some of my native tribesman hoping they have an axe. My guy is just a lowly fisherman though... I could try getting my swimming skill up to swim to the next chain of islands (probably my best bet.) I did manage to create a raft, however I cannot create a paddle due to my lack of good axes. I could create a sesta though (long stick used to push the raft) however as it being a stick I can only push it through shallow water.

I started another character under a different tribe on the main landmass. I chose the starting scenario settler where you start out with a few good axes (take that). Not sure if I want to make it that easy for myself plus all my time so far has been in my fisherman. However this new character is super competent.

Go check this damn game out! It's free!!!! (It use to not be) Donate if you like it Smile
