Early Access Review Giving The Game a bad Rating in general Would be unfair, because it definitely has a lot of Potential. Playing It was a lot Of Fun, especially the Multiplayer-EVERYONE I'm slightly angry with the Behavior of the Developers, who had my Screenshot, which displayed the Swim management backwards (and on Land), locked. It is incomprehensible to me that you have to see 1. ' s so narrow-minded That a Bug is fun and 2. LOCKING other screenshots, which are very offensive and show the bare Skin (DURCH ONE BUG). This Behavior of locking a Screen off a Bug suggests that the Developers don't understand any Fun-relative to their own Game-which is a real shame. Take Dead by Daylight, for Example, Developers would probably have to have 75% of the Screenshots locked because the community is rejoking about the thoroughly funny Bugs in the Form of Screens or Videos. As an Early Access title, none of the "Bugreports" is a direct Critique of the Game and none expects at this Point the certain "Perfection" that a Game should ultimately have. So it's just incomprehensible to me and leads to an Abrasive of this Game as it's just petty and almost unfair, referring to really more offensive Screens.

Early Access Review Hello, So for an "EA" already a good Start and very well done, because you can already play, craft and build properly. Of course there Are Bugs and other Bugs etc., is an "EA" and not a complete Mature game!!! The Devs. Hopes with the entry into the "EA" for money for Further development so that we will have a brisk Game. We are called upon to add our 50 Cents and the Devs. Help track Down Bug And share our Opinion on game Mechanics and Game Scope, etc. If we want something in the Game and it is feasible for the Developers, they will also definitely insert it:) To the Game: The Island is huge, you can see a lot (lots of Animal Species, tree species, Plant species, Pirates, Ore and stone Nodes etc.) and the Landscape is fantastic. Good Graphics and,,, the Animations have also been very successful. From the found Recipe Fragments that can be found in the Pirates, you can put together in the Workbench and learn a new Recipe that you can then also craft. The combat system is in Need of getting used to, but not shell-old, on the Contrary, sometimes something else:) A Mix of "Reign of Kings ^^," "Rust ...:)," "The Black Death:P" and others, just in The Pirates and Indian Age, Yeah!:) I Haven't got it all through yet, but I'm Impressed with this Game, It has a lot of potential. Let's see what's going to be out of here in the Future. So Far a successful "EA" Game! Recommended! Buy it around the Devs. To support so that the Development really gets ahead and we get a good Game. ^^:P
