An excellent indie game. People looking for some deep backstory need to look elsewhere, it's not really necessary in this game. You know what you need to know from the beginning: You are dropped in a procedurally generated world, a group of 5 islands, each with their own "theme" (industrial, feudal, countryside, etc.). You need to find a bunch of scattered parts for some sort of teleportation machine that will get you home (back to your home dimension, according to the "victory song" at the end). All the while you must concern yourself with survival, looking for food, weapons, ammunition, and useful items in houses, sheds, and towns.
However, you are being constantly hunted by robots, armed with guns, dogs, and lots of fun British lingo. They tend to hang around areas that contain items that you need, so you are always looking for ways to sneak past them, distract them, or if you have enough ammo and the numbers aren't too great, taking them out.
The game is a lot of fun. Lots of things to chuckle at, but also some great gameplay. It's Day-Z without the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s, and with a dark sense of humor. The environments are varied and look nice, each area having it's own feel. The robot AI is very good, and strikes a good balance between being not so good that they are impossible to beat, but not so stupid that they are always easy either. The robot variety is also well done, with various types each posing their own challenge. Right when you think you've seen every kind, the game surprises you with a new one.
I had this on my wishlist for a long time, but eventually pulled the trigger at full price because I simply got tired of wondering about it. Glad I did!
