Originally posted by TITOMOSQUITO187:Yeah...I guess Full release is misleading. I was assuming it was a full release based on what they had said about it, but playing it I see some of the things you mention as well. Some of the Manuals show that they are coming soon, or not complete. The graphics and art style is definitely a BIG plus. It looks fantastic. They actually sort of remind me of the Trine series now that I think about it.These games aren't as similar as they appear. This game has a dark vs. light mechanic of some sort does it not? That was really the reason I bought this because it was different and I wasn't going to just play 3 different Terraria games at once.
Originally posted by Black Hammer:First, a clarification is in order.Darkout is NOT a finished and completed release. There are plenty of items in the game labeled "description coming soon" (or sometimes "comming soon," with an extra M), production trees that seem incomplete and suggest more resources coming later (stone turns into tin, there is no natural tin ore, while tar in the primary ingredient in leather), and a couple of other mechanics in need of polish.That being said, it isn't a bad game. The visuals are a nice change from Terraria's blockier aesthetic, and the contrasts of light and dark are well implemented. The items you create fit the game's SF theme nicely, and I really like the research mechanic.I'm thinking of making a video to compare the two titles, most likely in a positive way for each, with the goal being to highlight what each does best.
