Rimworld is an addictive game that allows you to take control of an individual or team of people on an unknown planet. This deep dive into survival on an alien world after a shipwreck was designed to keep your imagination going for hours. If you’re a fan of sandbox style games, Rimworld will provide you with unlimited hours of entertainment as you struggle to survive.

Personalities help and sometimes hurt progress

In order to make the game more unique and exciting, each individual on your team comes with personality traits and skills. These can be random, and can be both helpful and harmful. Some of your team members may know how to hunt or fish, while others could be medics or teachers.

The game is designed to tell a story, so it’s best not to go into it expecting a smooth adventure. No matter how skilled you are as a player, the game has a habit of kicking adventure into the lives of your citizens no matter what you do. The storytelling aspect of the game is a lot like Dwarf Fortress, which Rimworld was inspired from. The storytelling is so rich that the game keeps track of past events that have happened to people in the game, and it reflects on the future of the world.

Well thought out survival game

Rimworld works much like any other sandbox colony game works. You will need to provide food and shelter for your colonists, and if you’re not playing in peaceful mode, medics and weapons as well. The game is designed so that even when disaster completely wipes out a colony, you can still have fun in rebuilding.

The focus of the game is truly making stories and seeing what happens in this world. With so many different factors to keep you busy, such as cooking, monitoring joy levels in the team, seasons, temperatures, and so much more, you could easily spend unlimited hours playing this game.

Modding community keeps it fresh

The game has a rich and well developed community that loves adding onto vanilla Rimworld. There are mods that can make finding ammo for a gun a requirement. There’s even a mod that allows you to play Rimworld multiplayer, which adds a lot more fun to the game.

The one drawback to using mods is that once you’ve added so many amazing new features, going back to the vanilla version can seem a bit dull. Luckily, the community is still vibrant and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.

If you like this type of sandbox style game, you will never get tired of Rimworld. The game is of bugs, has a rich community available to help, and makes even losing entertaining. No matter what happens in the game, you can count on hours of entertainment, and never getting tired of this game.


Rimworld is a surprisingly deep and rich narrative that allows you the fun of exploration, with few of the drawbacks associated with this type of game.
