Just a few comments on my first week in Wurm.
I entered this game not knowing what to expect. i have started on the free server and played completly solo, other than asking for advice. I spent my first few days doing nothing but try to stop myself from starving.......oh my god this game is tough for newbies! i mean real tough.
Last night i built the first wall of my first house...well more of a hut haha. How good did that feel! i had to start by making nails and planks for my house...which needed me to make a Small anvil just to make my nails, which needed me to mine iron ore and smelt it first! every action in this game seems to link to something else.
Combat= Not too impressive to be fair! but the game isnt concentrating too much on combat so understandable. Would be nice to see it sped up a bit with animations...even basic ones.
Is this game immersive? well i have only been here for a week but i am finding myself planning my next moves while i'm at work. I think that classes as being immersive! The only gripe i can have really is that although the game is supposedly in beta still, fact is it is four years old. Most places have villages if not towns and the choicest places are already taken. Newcomers have to travel a long way before they find anywhere they can settle. of course you can always join a village.
Overall this game has really suprised me! if this is what a true sandbox is about then i might find myself searching high and low for more.
