Yeah sorry thats waaaay too liberal a use of the roguelike word. I just meant that you will likely die and have to learn from it for sure. Initially I was expecting to build a little happy town, maybe discover more of the map and open some trade routes with other surviving cities and have a thriving ecosystem in a month or so of gaming. Instead a few days in my town banished me to die and I had to start over lol.

So I finished the A New Home scenario. I don't know if I would say I beat it, more like limped across the finish line. I underestimated some resources for that final stretch and I badly wished I had done my outposts different.

Are the other scenarios good? Is there any I should skip?

Phewwww finished!
finished with 211 citizens. By the end people were dying so fadt I couldn't keep up, my medical facilities all stopped working, we ran out of food, I was totally wrecked that was damn hard!

Yeah that was crazy, on my last day people legit stopped working completely. It was like (people have decided to stay at home for the last day with family) That was kinda realistic, lol. Plus I LOVED the music during the big freeze. It kept things tense.

Yup! Matched my experience as well. I really wish I had prioritized food and coal for that last bit. I thought I had but noooo, I underestimated it, lol.

And yeah, the music is so good. Such an incredible experience.

Fantastic game, I am going to do the scenarios now, just started the ark which seems interesting. I'll do the main story again I'm sure, you learn so much whole playing I would definitely do things differently
