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 is a one of a kind game in 2022. There's nothing out there that comes close to this level of detail in a sci-fi colony survival sim. Game never above 10% sale since release 4 years ago, and now I know why. I took advantage of a Fanatical 15% off offer, but it's worth $100 without a shadow of a doubt (given how much you'd pay for 2 hours at a movie). Seriously. Buy. This. Game.

Simply endless fun. It's a game with untold depth and possibility, but it isn't for everyone. Think about whether you like slow paced colony/builder sim games before purchasing, most negative reviews for RimWorld are basically "I don't like games like this, but I bought it for some reason and I don't like this either."
