How does the multiplayer work? Need to know before I buy.
I saw that chucklefish has some influence in this game. Anyway, their multiplayer as of late has been too, easy? I don't have the attention span to do portforwarding. So I am curious how the multiplayer works? Is it portforwarding, hamachi, or serverbased?

All hosts have to port forward although you can join dedicated servers where players give up their play slot hosting to allow 4 people to connect and play. Through this method you should not have to do anything as you just need someone who has already gone through the needed steps and activated the dedicated host option.

Edit: Hamachi sucks by the way. I'd highly suggest some other program that is more gamer centric and less intrusive/annoying.

I think Evolve was a client I used at one point in time but I rarely need such a service anymore so that is about it as far as I know.

so Evolve lets you play without port forwarding?

Evolve has a feature last time I checked that creates a VPN of sorts between all parties in a room controlled by the host. Since I believe all Hamachi does is create a VPN between clients within specified rooms (Which I think are limited to 5 people now?) I don't see how it is functionally different. I just liked Evolve for how it never limited me as far as I can remember on number of clients within a room.

Again I really don't have much of a need for such a feature now that I am in charge of the network settings at home so I'm not sure what the latest features of Evolve are or any changes to said features.

I personally prefer Tunngle. I found it easy to set up both the client and games.
