I only had some minutes time to play it. Enough to run around the first area, talk to some characters and pick some items. So far no crashes, and the only bug I encountered was inability to change resolution.
I was expecting Minecraft like experience - dropped in random place and do whatever you feel like. Actually it starts with real story and feels almost like adventure game. It reminded me first moments of playing Gothic.
Interface is a mixed bag. The windows are animated and work nicely. The beef I have is that sometime it's not very intuitive. For example I found some letter with list of items to find. It said it went to the log, but I can't find it. I'm sure it's there, and once I have time to check controls and find the logs, then all will be nice, but it doesn't seem to be as intuitive as pressing "L" for log (unless it's a bug
). I think those issues are totally fair to have in early access game.
I still didn't do any exploring or crafting or other interesting stuff, so can't really pass any judgement on the game, but so far it looks very interesting. I'll post some screenshots later today when I have more time to play.
