The successor to the amazing original game is being released for early access tomorrow. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I still remember getting the original game when it came out of early access and it was very pretty but a mess.
It took almost a year before it was really playable and quite some time to release.
This full standalone game promises a release this year, which sounds promising indeed. I will be watching this game and its comments on steam/reddit every day. I might buy into it from the start, will see what the initial impressions are and the depth of game play.
If I can build my own base with the first iteration then I am in, I love base building and decoration, especially if it is under the sea
