lookwise they are very similar as rw was made using PAs artstyle (with permission).

gameplaywise RW is way bigger than PA and a whole lot more random. you own faction has less people than PA but when you get raided you can easily get like 200man raids coming at ya in the later stages of the game.

It may look expansive on the first glance but in fact it's just poorly made tower defence game. Build a base - repel the raid - fix what's damaged - repel the raid and so on.
The mods add a bit of variety and make game better but this game doesn't have good optimisation so expect the lags in mid-late game. No matter what your PC specs are.

so we switched from begging for sales to downplaying the game now? @Insi :giselledeadpan:

I didn't beg for sales in the first place. Always said the game was trash.
Only modders deserve respect and honor for turning ♥♥♥♥ into something sensible.

then why are you staying around? just to troll?

because i all see coming from you are negativly biased posts. i'll be fair: while i am positivly biased i at least try to formulate an objective answer before adding my personal opinion.

you can have your opinion all you like and everyone has to respect that but at least try to provide an objective view first when someone asks.

@exerter: yes the game does start lagging towards the end (if playing modded earlier as well) due to ways its set up. Simulation in the game is on a single thread (which is the norm in this kinda genre actually). this means the game is bottlenecked by the performance of a single core of your CPU. PA is the same btw.

Thats was the technical aspect. back to gameplay. Insi mentioned killboxes and how they make the game monotone. This is a minmax strategy adopted by many players but its by no means the only way to play.

the game itself provides enough content for tens of hours and in some cases it goes up into the thousands for just vanilla. Mods simply add to it

It's a base building survival game. That's basically it. Game keeps going until everyone is dead. or you "win".

1. Why not?
2. If it's negative then it's biased? I stated the facts. Expect the "game is trash" part, that's just an opinion.
3/4. Opinion/view of a person cannot be objective. If you knew the definition of word "objectivity" you wouldn't say it like that.
5. Lie. A lot of games uses a multithreading to some extent. Some with a much greater number of "ticks" per second than Rim. I'm saying nothing about PA, didn't play it.
For Tynan fans it's just hard to admit that their idol not so good as a coder. But I can't blame Tynan for lack of multithreading. It is not a feature you can just "add". And people pay for this crap anyway, why bother? When you're ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ into your players mouth and they're happy - it's a win-win situation.
6. What kind of autistic person would play vanilla for a thousand hours?

Insignificant was issued a 1 week ban for rule 9, discussion of piracy in another thread, for those wondering about the ban.

@da¬chaos¬exerter
Sorry for the person that hijacked your post. It's much more expansive than Prison Architect, both are good games, but I think you'll find significantly more content in RimWorld since it is a story generator, not a prison simulator.

2 if you narrow your view just to those things you dislike then yes its biased.

3/4 'i dislike it because XYZ' gives you only part of the whole picture. i was talking about the parts you dont mention at all. you opinion goes after providing an overview.

5 sorry not accepting 'game' as a valid term in this context due to covering too big an area. Simulations are usually handled in a single thread for simplicity sake. for more input on that check the other threads. dun wanna repeat whats being explained regarding that over and over again.
And im by no means a tynan fanboy. i have a lot of issues if RW (just like many of us do) but a lot of those issues have been adressed by the modding community. i respect him for the work put into this product and am able to understand why certain decision were made.

edit: thank you pheanox.

I purchased this last year full price. Totally worth it for me. You can bring so many elements into your game, it is some work to get things set up initially however, the personalities you can bring in and the "relationships" they can get into result in some youtube level drama. Always fun when you have a pyro who acts up when the get broken up with. I will always recommend this game; one of my all time favorites.
Grapplehoeker i am autistic but thx the spell check. spell check you name at the same time pls.

English dictionary, Brought
cause (someone or something) to be in a particular state or condition.

The state or condition of the game went from being un owned to owned by me so it is still a true statement.

If your going to correct though maybe you should realise "well" is not a introductory word, therefore requires no comma after using it as a introduction. also you assume English is my native language, what if it were not what if we made it just to get the world speaking it then make a sudden change back to celtic just to be assess.

You should be aware that iqs are the true test of intelligence not grammer as a person on the spectrum i can put my cause into effect while i pause for effect while your mother gives me cause to be erect but i get put of when she gets sexed and she herself becomes erect as dudes these days dressed as women are hard to detect. I can do all that with a higher iq than you will ever have.

Thx pheanox for the reply i will stick with it i think i was just concerned maybe the price tag was going to go down fast like prison did i cant decide if its worth the 25 squid price tag

Rimworld is a game with lots of replay value to it. It's a game that I have played on and off for 4 years and have logged just over 3500 hours into it. I find that it's the game I turn to the most when I want to play something laid back and relaxing.

And it's also a game that has indirectly saved me money over the years. There's been plenty of games that I would have impulse bought on day 1 but since I had Rimworld I was able to wait out that impulse and either buy that other game later on when it was on sale (Mordhau, Civilization 6, Fallout 4) or wait out over-hyped games that turned out to be duds (Fallout 76, No Man's Sky, Farcry 5, etc.).

I think Rimworld is going to be a game you'll be coming back to for years after purchasing it, even when you have newer, shinier games to choose from Rimworld's appeal doesn't wear off.
