Description:

THE VISION

In the stillness of the early morning, the birdsong drifted sweetly in through the crack of the bedroom window. Light shimmered through the blinds and caught the dust in the air as it fell. In the center of the room was a bed, and the loving couple entwined within the covers on top of it lay splayed out like bird fossils in the stream bed. Suddenly, movement of feet and cotton sheets and an unconscious moaning broke the silence. “Noooooo!”

The man bolted upright in bed with a look of terror on his face like he heard the sun was about to explode. His wife stirred. “Honey, what is it?”

The cold sweat ran down his forehead like it was a giant ice cube. “The Meeples, babe…they’re…growing…”

“Who are? What?”

“Babe, it’s the MEEPLES! And they’re out there in space, growing and building and getting stronger and more complex every second!” He reached for the full sealed water bottle by the bed, twisted off the cap with fear strength, and chugged the whole thing down.

His wife was totally puzzled. She had never heard of a Meeple, and in fact, in her world, they didn’t even exist. But she wasn’t so quick to think her husband had gone completely insane. “So who are the Meeples, honey?”

He wasn’t sure what to say that wouldn’t slightly erode his marriage. He inhaled deeply and stared off into space for a moment before he began. “Bald little…square-headed…people. Or, sort of like people at least, I guess I don’t really know. And I’m not sure if they’re tiny or human sized or what, but somewhere out there, in the depths of space, someone is…helping them. One single person is out there showing them how to be and growing their modest empire bit by bit.”

“What?”

“They’re expanding across the galaxy, babe! Spreading from planet to planet! Just building and growing and doing their jobs! They’re coming! They’re coming! They’re coming!” And then the room was silent, and he knew his wife would never believe him, even if she said she did, and his shoulders sagged and he went to the shower and when he came out he had almost forgotten he’d ever had the dream.

…But somewhere out there in the depths of space, the Meeples kept going…

A game with a recent review score of 34% for $11.99 that’s currently available on steam in a bundle with Regions of Ruin for $9.43? Why did anyone think this was a good idea?


#3

Steam reviews seem to show that this has great potential, and customers want devs to keep on working on this game to be where it can be. The sprite animations aren’t bad either.


#4

This thing was in early access and they decided to release it with so many bugs and flaws it’s almost the only thing the recommendations are talking about, even the positive ones. People keep saying it has potential but clearly the developers decided to push a 1.0 without realizing those and that’s generally indicative of a ditch and run. Released the 10th of April and from what I can tell it has received no further updates since.

This seems to be a fair assessment from what I can tell. I do not share your optimism @K16.
