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

This incredibly addictive colony manager can be a little overwhelming to genre newcomers, but learning as you fail is part of the fun. One of the most rewarding and satisfying games I've played in years.

Fantastic game. The characters live their lives. I haven't mastered it quite yet but setting up scenarios for your pawns is hilarious.

RimWorld is such an awesome game that you'll spend hundreds of hours on it. The gameplay is deep and engaging, with a wide variety of scenarios and challenges. The graphics may not be the most advanced but they do the job. The level of randomness in events and the AI Storyteller system make it feel like you're truly in a colony-building adventure. The level of replayability is incredibly high, making every playthrough unique and exciting. When things don't go as planned, it can be a bit frustrating but it ultimately makes the eventual success even more satisfying. Overall, RimWorld is a must-play, highly recommended!
