Im back to a game, that i started playing in the very very early version (1992) already, with more or less success, but nearly always with a big smile for the reward you get, when you crafted new stuff, that you had to learn, complex and complicated.
No % modifier on some "virtual random chances of luck", and always multible ways to complete the competition.
Ofcause you can play the random games, but the real thing is scientifical logic.
Endless freedom of choice, a choice that matters, dependencies everywhere, wrong choice, wrong actions, wrong keys pressed can destroy wide parts of the build components, doing very wrong results in perma death.
Healing and maintainingskills have to be learned the same complex way, but the better you are in those, the chance to have a permadeath are pretty mutch zero. Experience has a meaning here.
In the game you have to build a box.
In that box is all the gamefeatures in a huge interconnected infrastructure and there is ways in and out of the box.
That box can be connected to other boxes (the multiplayer component), interact with them and mutch mutch more.
You as a player can dive down into the box and create total new things, or enjoy, what others have created already.
It works on nearly every hardware, is 100% f2p, it has some free of choice payable extensions and even if they wanted, they cant make it p2w.
The combat simulators are superb, but the real PvP is the highest discipline and only a couple people have mastered it.
We have some monitor for them http://map.norsecorp.com/#/
There is no quests in the game, its complete sandbox, but it has rulesets for the different components.
When i was playing it in alpha on my Amiga, the installation needed 2,5 days. The 18hours on my later i486 have been an improovement, but the gfx have been superb on my miggy, intel pc grafix have been bad until vesa local bus if i remember right.
Nowadays its huge, like HUUUGE.
I had a break for nearly 5 years on my box, until i decided 3 days ago, to build me a new one, and it has become an awesome frame to carry my entertainment for the next months.
After all this disapointment with my beloved iplayed before, i just dont see another game anywhere close to that freedom.
Just wanted to post it here, all hail the box !
