Review from Steam

At this point in time I think it's well established that this game will not be getting multiplayer/coop. Which is a shame because that would have provided longevity and frankly more interest in the game. I think I read somewhere that the dev said they would have to rewrite 50% of the code to make this possible. Personally, I think they should just bite the bullet and DO IT. Easier said than done to say the least.
I could gripe about the fps drops, poor optimization, etc. But eventually they will either iron this stuff out or they will scrap it and make a new game. This will probably be the best route for them at this point if they ever want to make a game they can actually be proud of.
That's about all I've got for negatives. To some, that's enough not to buy the game. So don't buy it.
However, I am going to keep playing it. I accept the game for what it is, flaws and all. To what some call boring, tedious, and repetitive- I call peaceful. This is just one of those games I can zone out in and relax. This coming from a person who gets frustrated and irritated (just like dealing with my ex wives) and in a lot of other games. This one just lets me fix equipment, dig, and solve problems. It's simple, but challenging enough so that I don't get bored.
To increase the "fun" level and the reason I have played so many hours- I have my equipment controls on a HOTAS and I have a heavy equipment controller clamped to my desk as well. It makes it loads more enjoyable. As a side note, I have many hours of IRL experience running heavy equipment and I am now permanently disabled. So although I may never run equipment IRL again, this game gives me a small nugget of joy that I once felt.

never thought I'd enjoy a glorified dirt digging simulator, but here we are

I personally hate making these styles of review, but in order to give my honest opinion I see this as fitting, in all seriousness this game means a lot to me being one of the first games I ever played on PC, so I cherish it quite a bit. (Love the soundtrack, brings back memories for sure.)

Can't really describe this one
mainly due to how some people
play the game, but based on
the difficulty you chose when
you started the game, it can
take from 2 hours to several
days depending on what decisions
you make for your mining company.
It’s a fairly difficult but
challenging game, and that’s why
I love it.
---{Story}---
☐ Boring and pointless
☑ Serves no purpose to the game
☐ Not Awful
☐ Well thought out
☐ Actually breathtaking
☐ This Is Now Cannon in the MCU
---{Price}---
☐ It’s free!
☐ Worth it
☑ Maybe if you really like it
☐ Buy it on sale then it’s worth it
☐ Why would you buy this?
☐ Complete Rip-off
---{Bugs}---
☐ Bug Free
☐ Close to perfect
☑ Rare, but can break your game if not careful.
☐ Some Bugs Occasionally
☐ Game-breakingly Painful
☐ Completely Unplayable
---{Multiplayer}---
Sadly, no multiplayer,
and no cross-platform
compatibility. Kind of
sad you'll never be
able to start a mining
company with your friends
but still enjoyable
single-player.
---{DLC + Content} ---
There was 1 DLC for this game,
and from what I've seen its
good, and for 5 Dollars or
cheaper it’s pretty worth it.
However, its most likely not
something you'd buy until late
game. I did not own it however.
---{Conclusion}---
Make your own decision based on what you've seen the game to
be, personally though, I found the game to be pretty nostalgic
playing it over the years, and of course I’d be happy to hear
if you bought it or not. Remember to always do your research.
