Reached Out

And, Out of Reach is done. A bit of a weird one. It was an MMORPG survive-em-up from a year or two ago, but the devs pretty much dropped it as soon as it left early access. The result is an empty shell of a game that's just sitting there with a few random people traipsing through it. There is a single-player component - essentially just an extended tutorial, but it's fun while it lasts. There isn't much to it, you wander about gathering resources and building your base, gradually upgrading everything so you can build bigger and better things. The tutorial takes you a good way through the game, so there really isn't much more to see. You build a base, build a boat, explore islands, follow treasure maps, all in the name of being the best pirate. It might have been more fun with teams of players, but it was never to be. Onwards!

Next up on the randometer is...Solstice! Not the SNES game that I was thinking of, but apparently a recent visual novel. Interesting. I tend to be more in the old-school camp of "a book is a book and a game is a game, and never the twain shall meet", but I'll see how it goes.
