When I was a kid I wanted to be able to shrink down, thanks to this game I don't wanna anymore

Review from Steam

Look I don't really do reviews like this but this game is ******* amazing. I payed thirty bucks for this game and my wife and I have been playing it for 3 days straight. The amount of sheer content in an UNFINISHED game is mind-blowing. The fact that I've only experienced ONE bug in the game is staggering (And it's a mild audio bug that's corrected by logging out and logging back in). I haven't clipped through the world, gotten stuck, glitched out, or otherwise experienced a single issue that isn't an intended game mechanic.
The Map is humongous and will take you between 8-10 minutes to sprint across, longer if you walk and sprinting across the map isn't really possible because of the nourishment requirements.
The enemies are a challenge. Some are annoying, some are just cute, some are a serious challenge that take real life days to prepare for and some are the stuff of nightmares that you won't ever want to mess with. (Think reaper leviathan from subnautica but they're giant insects)
The crafting is in depth, systematic, methodical, tiered, upgrade compatible and is mostly linear.
The building mechanics are simple but will let your imagination work without many boundaries.
Multiplayer - This is where the game has challenges but they're not the challenges that most multiplayer games have. I haven't experienced a single connection issue, desync, sudden disconnection, server error, or otherwise problem that keeps me and my wife from playing together. The multi-player issue is that the game requires you to have a microsoft xbox account (No subscription required) and you have to connect to friends through the xbox friend's list to play together. It's not so much of an issue as it is a mild irritation that you'll overcome if you have someone you specifically want to play with. Otherwise I'm not aware of a public search option for playing with other people. Have some friends in mind to play with before you purchase this game.
The graphics are very good, they're not amazing or mind-blowing but I have no issues playing the game with max visual settings. There's some blur that happens when trying to look at things far away but I'm almost certain the game's designed that way.
Half of the game you'll find yourself stopping and saying out loud "Whoa, what is that"?!
The other half of the game you'll find yourself twitching the camera quickly and saying quietly "What the f#@! is that"!?

Hey,
The game is clearly full of bugs, but at least you get to kill them. ;)

If you grew up wondering what it would be like to be the Szalinski children, well now's your chance. Sure it may not be your lovable Canadian father who made you 1 inch tall, but the outcome is the same. Dodge spiders and stink bugs as you try to scratch out a corner of your very own in this gorgeous survival game. It is made by obsidian, so I expect a lot, and have been Exactly pleased with their offering.

This game is alot of fun, the concept of surviving in your backyard as a shrunk down person is very interesting to work with. However the game does have drawbacks, first the inventory management is clunky and sometimes doesn't work as intended, undoing my attempts of sorting my inventory by rejoining is common. Secondly some of the enemies are too powerful to take on in single player, leading to frustrtion, you would have already been killed 20 times by random spiders and mosquitoes before you are even able to fight them off because of our lack luster gear. Lastly is the water physics, trying to get out of water onto a lily pad feels like rubbing yourself against sandpaper due to the height gained by jumping out of water being tiny. But all of these can be solved in a patch/update in the future so let me move onto the good parts. The creativity is astounding in this world that the team of Grounded has created, there isn't a second of this game that i truly felt bored because there is so much to do and explore! The designs of the creatures are incredible, not often i would say that ants are cute, and likewise the spiders are scary and fierce comparable to a T-rex in your backyard! This game can create beautiful landscapes if you stop to take in the beauty in front of you.
