Build your base, explore the land, and establish your legacy in Brinefall. In this epic base-building game, players will have to venture into a punishing land to find resources, but they'll have to do so while dealing with hordes of evil creatures that lurk at every corner.
Featuring a great blend of base-building and RPG mechanics, Brinefall seems like a game explicitly designed to hook you in for hours. The fact that it also looks gorgeous and feels great to play is just the cherry on top of the amazing gameplay experience that is this game. Just be prepared for some pesky performance issues.
An Epic Journey
Remember that feeling when you first played Minecraft? How the world seemed to overflow with potential for adventures and new discoveries? That same sense of wonder is still alive in Brinefall.
Your first task as soon as you enter the game will be to pick a location to establish your settlement. From humble beginnings, your next task will be to find some resources to expand and improve your living conditions. Brinefall's gameplay loop feels as organic as possible, featuring a tangible sense of progression in the form of your buildings and settlements.
However, the fun doesn't end there. Merely expanding your settlement is only a fraction of the things you'll have to do to stay alive in Brinefall.
Sail and Combat
A body of water blocks your progression? Not a problem: just build a boat and prepare to sail the seas to hunt for loot and even more secrets to discover. Much like Valheim, exploration is key when it comes to surviving the ruthless world of Brinefall because you're never alone.
As you explore the lands, you'll soon notice that enemies are prowling around. You're either the hunter or the prey, and you'll have to make use of every weapon at your disposal if you hope to survive.
Brinefall doesn't have classes in the strict sense of the word. Instead, players have access to a wide range of abilities to help them combat the dangers of the world. From potion brewing to spellcasting and hand-to-hand combat, capable players can become nearly unbeatable in Brinefall.
As happens with this type of open-world game, the performance in Brinefall isn't optimal. The game suffers from occasional stutters and framerate dips in busier areas, which is especially notable when there's grass nearby. It might have to do with how the engine handles transparency effects.
Still, a game like this hardly needs to run at 60 frames per second to deliver a satisfying experience. If you're hoping to get the most out of this game, however, I'd recommend playing the game with reduced visuals until the developers address some of the more glaring issues with Brinefall's performance.
Brinefall is as addictive as a base-building game can get. The few technical hiccups aren't enough to sour this otherwise flawless survival title.
