Early Access Review
Really, really want to like this project. I want to say it has a bright future. The physics, the combat, the game engine itself, the platforming, are all *very* promising. Unfortunately, in it's current state it simply (to me) not worth the backing cost at all.
Lately I've looked at my library, and I'm glad to say that out of all my titles, I regret very few purchases. Unfortunately, Overgrowth is a backing that for me is starting to look worthy of seeking a refund for. The speed of updates, the years it's been in development, and the.. state of the game/engine itself, (which grants me a low frame rate and crashes regardless of my settings, [important to note, I can run and enjoy GTAV and BF4 on this machine] even now), bring the centrally poised thumb downward.
I won't say don't support them. And I am not yet decided on whether I would seek a refund with Wolfire Games. I believe they are honest and don't spend the funds they receive wrongly necessarily, but I also can't say I think this price is worth what is offered. If this game does come to fruition within the next 1-2 decades, I'm sure it would be a great game, with a great engine, physics, combat based on said physics, and maybe an interesting story and (possibly?) multiplayer.
As of now, you are putting your faith, and money, into a product which, (for some reason I personally cannot run very well at all), is ultimately far from finished and contains very little replay value in my view.
That said, when/if this title is *ever* finished or near finished, I imagine it would certainly be worth this price, if not more.
