RimWorld developer says next version is the big 1.0 release

Posted by , / 4808 views

The developer of RimWorld [Official Site] has said that the next version will be the big 1.0 release as they outline what to expect from it.

In this lengthy double reddit post, the developer Tynan Sylvester, outlines some things we should expect from the big release. They also explain how they simply cannot put in everything people want, naturually, because not everything works. What's also interesting, is that the developer claims they've had "76-year old grandmas and 10-year-old kids" email in to thank them for making a game they can actually play, which is really sweet!

As for 1.0, Sylvester said they are "furiously refining the hell out of this thing" and listed a few things coming like a heavily redesigned interface, systems and balance for caravans. There's also a watermill power generator and underwater power cables, a huge optimization to mod loading, cooks refuel stoves before cooking if needed instead of waiting for haulers, and plenty more!

They said that was just things off the top of their head too, there's likely tons more that will be coming. It's exciting, as it's already a fantastic game even if it was to release right now.

Thanks for the tip Jan!

Ah, fantastic. Seems that I hopped on the RimWorld train just in time.

Well, Optimized and bug free would be all I want for the most part at this point. Got a log of time in this game and so long as the mod support is good, it'll have everything I want even if i need add it myself ^.^

I'm so sick of seeing "if it's on sale"... These people, especially the smaller devs, need $ to survive, and they work damned hard. Buy saying you'll only buy their game if it goes on sale you just devalue their work.

How likely do you think it is that some are now inflating their prices so that a sale is affordable to them?

I don't believe the game is feature complete enough, specially endgame.

Because the frequency of Steam sales has eliminated full-price purchases for the patient. It makes it feel like you got ripped off to buy a game and then see it hit 25%+ off a week later. I do hear your point. I want to say I agree. But my actions don't agree with you. I am so behind in games that I basically only buy games that have been out for a year or more because I still don't want to miss out. There is NO POINT wasting my money on a new release if I have 10+ great games I haven't started yet. That said, I do have friends that get through games quickly and want more. They buy new games at release. So, I know that not everyone is in the boat I am in. Hopefully those guys agree with you.
