About RimWorld

About this game

RimWorld is a sci-fi colony sim driven by an intelligent AI storyteller. It generates stories by simulating psychology, ecology, gunplay, melee combat, climate, biomes, diplomacy, and more.

Survive

You begin with three survivors of a shipwreck on a distant world. Your colonists are not professional settlers – they're survivors from a crashed ship. They're uneducated, so don’t know how to build shelter, find food and water, or defend themselves from the many threats that they will face. But not everything goes smoothly. starvation, disease, mental breakdowns, pirate raids...It's designed to co-author tragic, twisted, and triumphant stories about imprisoned pirates, desperate survivors, lone gunmen, and bumbling soldiers. It works by controlling the "random" events that the world throws at you. Every thunderstorm, pirate raid, and travelling salesman is a card dealt into your story by the AI Storyteller. There are several storytellers to choose from. Randy Random does crazy stuff, Cassandra Classic ramps up the difficulty, and Phoebe Friendly is… well… friendly.

Thrive

Build in the forest, desert, jungle, tundra, and more. Decorate your colonies to make them feel like home. Watch your colonists develop relationships with one another. Source the resources you need to survive and thrive and expand your colony until it spans the globe.

Try Again

The game is very complex and challenging, but also very rewarding. There are many different ways to play RimWorld, and no two games will ever be the same. It is a game that has a lot of replay value, as you can try different strategies and approaches each time you play. If you are looking for a game that is both challenging and fun, it will certainly appeal to fans of strategy and management games

The gameplay loop is very addictive, the mix of all the random events makes really interesting stories, the soundtrack and sound effects are inmersive. Honestly one of the best games I've ever played.

Great game, can really see myself playing this a lot. UI takes some getting used to, but there are mods to help with that. Mods to help with any issues really, great modding scene.

It took a group of friends and acquaintances nearly a year to convince me to purchase this game, and they only succeeded because it was on sale. I'd never thought the game was for me. I didn't like the look of it, and the gameplay looked deeply involved and confusing. I was wrong. The game is more intuitive than I gave it credit for, and there are so many options on how to play (plus so many mods and some interesting DLCs) that it's actually very adaptive to your playstyle. I'm completely addicted. I haven't been able to go a day without at least picking it up for an hour or two. It's interesting and fun, and if you're considering it (especially if it's on sale, which is rare), I definitely think it's a good game.

Bought this for a friend. I've played the game for 600+ hours and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a colony sim that lets you do absolutely everything. Mods also help to expand the game even further than vanilla, letting this base game turn into a perfect synphony of 200+ mods for every save.

Rimworld is a game that has been praised for its depth and replayability. The game is a sci-fi colony simulator that has you managing a group of survivors who have crash-landed on a distant planet. You’ll need to manage their needs, build structures, and fend off threats in order to keep your colony alive. One of the things that makes Rimworld so great is the sheer amount of content that’s available. There are tons of different items, structures, and creatures to interact with, and the game’s AI storyteller system ensures that each playthrough is unique. However, the game’s complexity can be a bit overwhelming at first, and the graphics are not the most impressive. But overall, Rimworld is a fantastic game that is well worth your time if you’re a fan of colony simulators. I would give Rimworld a 4 out of 5 stars. It’s a great game that is sure to provide hours of entertainment, but it’s not without its flaws. Received message. Rimworld is a game that has been praised for its depth and replayability.
