Title: Introduce yourself!
Post by: Tynan on September 16, 2013, 11:54:27 PM
It's good to have some idea of who you're talking to. So, if they wish, new members of the forum can post here to introduce themselves.

Say as much or as little as you like. But you could answer questions like:
-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
-What's your favorite other game?
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

And/or put up ridiculous pictures, as you see fit.

I shall start below!

Basics of me:

I started making paper games as a small child. At age 15 I started with digital game design by making levels for Unreal Tournament. Within a few years, I was doing contract level work for companies like Epic and Groove Games, and making non-Unreal indie games (which were all awful). In 2008 I graduated university and got a job as a designer at Irrational Games. I worked there on the BioShock PS3 DLC and on BioShock Infinite for four years. In February 2012, I left the company to return to Ottawa. Then I wrote a game design book called Designing Games (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1449337937) and started working on game prototypes. The first four or five didn't work, until I tried a colony sim. That worked; that's what became RimWorld.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I created RimWorld :P As for this style of game, I played strategy games and management games since I was a little kid. It's always been there for me.

-What's your favorite other game?
Deus Ex. Yep, still hasn't been matched in terms of world development and story.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Need to think of one!

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I'm a frosted mini-wheats guy, usually. But I eat a ton of breakfast cereal (usually while coding, seeing as I work at home), so I have broad tastes in this department.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

Well, Saw it while scrolling though on Indiedb, and thought to myself 'Hey, that looks cool!'
Ive always liked creating, planing and tactics (to a Point) that always made me stay away from the Hardcore games in each catagory, Interested on how Rimworld fits into it all!

-What's your favorite other game?

Well, Right now playing though STALKER:CoP with MISERY 2.02, but I used to drift around the older DoW games, CoH when it came out , used to be a big CnC Junkie (Red Alert was my first modding experiance) and also floated around Crysis for awhile and ArmA Series

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

pretty much every time their is something that is unexpected I jumped, dosnt matter if its a Horror game, or if its just something that surprized me, I jump at least 6" off my chair ^^

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

never really ate Breakfast Cereal, but I do every once and awhile have weatbix, loaded up with butter and irradiated in a Microwave!

This is UsF from Germany.  :)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Reddit. Plain and simple. Someone posted it in one of the subreddits that I follow and I got excited by its look and its description of features. I enjoy complex games or complex simulations where you have limited influence, but it can create a butterfly effect on the whole system.

-What's your favorite other game?
I enjoy playing many games. The thing I like most is complex systems and trying to beat them. For example Hearts of Iron, Europa Universalis, Dwarf Fortress, Prison Architect or stressful ones like the Men of War series. My favorite game would probably be Men of War Assault Squad. I do not enjoy playing pure Roleplayinggames, because I am not a story focussed person. I like good mechanics.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Everytime I go into a competetive multiplayer game, I most likely will throw a rage-fit if the game feels unbalanced to me. That or I quietly ragequit. I think I ain't bad, but I always feel I want to be the best and it doesn't go well, since you can't be the best.  >:(

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Meals start at lunch, not breakfast!

Well, I should probably tell you first that Hypolite is not my real first name. I'm a French guy who got the chance to come to work in New-York thanks to her wife and I'm enjoying it right now. I've been fascinated by video game since my early childhood, and thanks to always being one game system generation late, I have that strong retro mindset where looks is less important than actual gameplay, even though I don't dislike beautiful good games.

My gaming tastes range from arcade racing to german simulation games, with RTS, platformers, tactics in the middle. You can find out more on my Steam profile (http://steamcommunity.com/id/hypolite_petovan). The games I like the least are games emphasizing individual skill, reflexes and/or a lot of thinking more than intuitive solutions. If I had to name my favorite studios, I'd say Bullfrog, Introversion Software and Arcen Games. I also like almost every production from Valve from the early days of Half-Life to the more recent Dota 2, but who doesn't?

I'm making game prototypes myself, 1 per year on average, always web-based since I'm a professional web developer by day. I'm also the administrator of a small french community  (http://aeriesguard.com) talking about video games, books and movies, mostly sci-fi and fantasy.

I came across Rimworld thanks to JP Le Breton (also known as "vectorpoem") who works at Double Fine, another mighty fine game studio and whom I follow on Twitter. I'm looking forward helping as much as I can, being with the game or anything web-related (like this pesky encoding problem).

and your one looks unique  ;)
i play since C64, so i*m evertime open for new styles of games^^ and RogueLike is one of my favotorites

-What's your favorite other game?

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I'm subscribed to r/basebuildinggames on Reddit, and they linked the video. It looked interesting, and I saw there was a chance of testing it out, so I materialised.

What's your favorite other game?
Difficult question. Civilisation or Myst would be the two I'd say if I'm pushed, although Minecraft should be up there as well. Other games I enjoy are Dungeon Keeper 2, Anarchy Online, the Might and Magic RPGs (7 and 8 in particular), and the Sierra city builders (Caesar, Pharoah, Zeus, Emperor).

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
My boyfriend and I were playing modded minecraft. I had heard him giggling for the past hour, and asked me to come over to his base (we have teleporters between the two). I, being a fool, suspected nothing, appeared at his base, and was instantly launched onto and off various jump pads inspired by Portal to a square room underground, with the word "HI" written in torches on the wall. That isn't the embarrassing part.

The embarrassing part is when I tried to get out of it and got lost and ended up trapping myself in his nuclear reactor. Whoops.

What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I don't eat cereal nowadays. Porridge is where it's at, with lots of honey and some cinnamon.

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I read the article on Rock, Paper, Shotgun about RimWorld and was inerested. I love sandbox base building games, especially sci-fi oriented ones. I love to build bases and design intricate traps (so much I will play them downtime while Im working >.>)

What's your favorite other game?
One of my absolute favorite games is tech modded Minecraft. The machines and all the glorious contraptions and things that can be made! Besides that pretty much Dwarf Fortress, Factorio, and KSP

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I have a horrible memory and can't honestly recall being embarrassed playing any game  :-[

What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I dont really eat breakfast, but when I do its generally Cap'n Crunch if I decide to get something

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

Df, ofc. Df has blown my mind years ago. But quickly (well if 2-3 years is quickly) i got tired of aching fingers.
It's nothing more disappointing than developer deaf to community.
Overall i was playing games my whole life, and still do. The more freedom you have, the less linearity,
more randomness and immersion the better. I'm lost in real world and always in search of substitute
in vg world. But there's always something. Like take Heaven&hearth for example.
They made one of best every made online survival hardcore experiences, despite all lags, bugs, and exessive
amounts of naked maniacs trying to knock you out on the ground just to take your pants, that game was best.
You could literally hide in woods like, forever. But. The server on which you play on is not infinite like minecraft.
And the resources are limited (and despite you can find more, the best spots, mines and etc are usually controlled
by large groups of vicious people). Thus making it impossible for new players to enjoy like if they were here for the first
time. World is a garbage dump filled with ruins, rivers are never safe because any time you use boat you can bump
into some troll that is such of a high level that will one shot you. And the community in not really that bug.
And then, developers make a sequel - Salem. With ugly 3d graphics, retarded player attributes system and other
(like pay to win donations) unpleasant features. Personally i believe they sold the game soul. Because seeing
how different they are, i doubt the developers actually made the first title (it seems game created itself,
using their hands if you know what i mean). So ok, they made second installment, transfered part of community
to it, but those like me who got nausea are left behind... Playing on the only one old server.
Threads with request of releasing private server for the 500 people that left are popping up every week.
No. Why not? Game is abandoned, they have new community there why not what's the problem?
No. Just no, deal with it dirty peasants that were supporting our game for so long, just eat the leftovers
from our table and keep your mouths shut or you wont be able to do even that.

Ok. Grand Theft Auto 4. There is a good example of relations between Rockstar and Boris Vorontsov
(the guy that made ENB series). He made the graphics attachable dll that adds effects like
anti-aliasing, ssao, indirect illumination and etc, he made insane amount of work releasing enb optimized to
work with different games. The interesting part is Rockstar response on that.
If you remember, game never had mod support. You always had to hack the insides (like the file that contained
the hashes of all other files and if one is off table the game loaded default unmodified one (which is still mistery
for me where they had a DUPLICATE files for that case)), you had to convert all stuff to be able to replace
models, textures, etc. And on top of all that "respect" for modders community that still keep GTA:SA alive, they
released "patches" for the game. Patches which structure was always the same 1-2 minor (nearly idiotic) bugfies
(like a bit bugged shadows on leafes that i never even noticed before they mentioned it), and "fix" preventing
modded files from work (until hacked again), and a special feature (every time more and more complicated to solve)
specifically for breaking ENB support on that patch. Spit in the face, that's how it's called.
Nowadays i play Dota 2, and just to understand the scale of developers (Valve! not one guy like schema) ignoring their
community you can proceed to dev forums and see by your eyes, thousands of threads never responded by any representative.
Every patch they made, every update is a disappointment. What have been 2 years ago when they built game WITH community,
has gone.

That wall of text has nothing to do with you guys) It's just that i had to spit it out somewhere, and done it here for some reason.

What's your favorite other game?
I don't believe such has been released yet.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Saw it on RPS and decided to dig some more information on my own...

-What's your favorite other game?
I will define myself as a turn based strategy fan, but not a fanatic. I enjoy good games.
Best games on my list:
1. Baldurs Gate
2. Jagged Alliance 2
3. Civilization 4 (With mods! Vanilla alone wont deserve this spot)
4. Dominions 3 (4 is too alpha to judge but looks promising.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
(on teamspeak)
Recently I joined an Arma-II/III clan, and they asked me how old I was...
I thought them somewhat immature while we were playing.
It was more "chaotic" then i was used to form the milsims, and much more drama.
But only then I realized I was playing with a bunch of 15yo... with really deep voices!

Worked with Tynan previously, read up on RimWorld, and was interested instantly.

-What's your favorite other game?
League of Legends. Currently sitting at Gold II and hoping to end this season at Plat V or better!

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
FFX-2 has, in my opinion, probably the best combat system of any FF game (other than tactics). And I strongly defend it on those grounds!

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
The kind that's free, and preferably has milk. Hell, I'll even take almond milk if that's all you've got!

I saw a comment about RimWorld on Reddit and I generally love these type of strategy games where you control a band of people to build, fight, farm, and live.. Although I never did get far in Dwarf Fortress :p
-What's your favorite other game?
My favorite other game would have to be Haven and Hearth. It's a indie game made by a great little company called Seatribe and this game in my opinion is really great. It's set in the Late Iron Age and features (Germanic?) lore/mythology and it's a survival MMORPG with permadeath. Plus, it's free!
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
My most embarrassing gaming-related story would have to be when I was playing SS13 and when I first started, naturally not knowing anything, I would hit people with things accidentally while trying to help them...

Frosted Flakes. No arguments.

I am a working as informatic catalan.

I've done a bit of everything, "I am jack of all trades, master of none" as they say where I live.

I read a lot (science fiction, fantasy, mythology i anthropology), I love documentary films of the conquest of space, I love sushi, Japanese culture, the malt whiskey, cats and dwarfs (dwarves who dig tunnels, not Tyrion Lannister  ;D )

-What Introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
It was thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun, one of my daily reads.
-What's your favorite other game?
If I could only choose one it would be Dwarf Fortress, the best stories designed generator. Although the truth, I'm a player of Lord of the Rings Online and Crusaders Kings 2.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Winning a game of Starcraft (the first) in numerical inferiority, being completely drunk.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Coffee, but for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, ...


And/or put up ridiculous pictures, as you see fit.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I enjoy Indie games and definitely found myself very immersed in the world of FTL, so this just sounds great. Games like FTL and Sid Meier's Civ are definitely part of the reason I'm so fascinated with RimWorld.

-What's your favorite other game?
Have to go with Dragon Age: Origins. Completely honest here, that game blew my mind more than when I first played Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. Some of the greatest in-game storytelling I've ever experienced. And the characters! Great stories are told with great characters, and I found myself talking to these guys just to hear what their responses would be. Normally NPCs are a means to an end, but I grew attached to my team with Dragon Age. Granted, this happens with plenty of games (Planescape: Torment, anyone?) but DA:O was just my cup of tea I guess.
That being said, I play a LOT of games. Seeing just the one pick can be misleading.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Played a lot of World of Warcraft back in the day. On a particularly soggy day when I was in college, I had just broken up with my girlfriend and decided it would be a great idea to break out that handle of tequila I had in the cupboard to cope while I did some questing and talking with old friends on Ventrilo. There were probably 10 of my closest guild-mates that could, on that day, attest to me starting to get very loud and yelling a lot before disappearing entirely - without logging out. The next day I told them this story:
I came home, told my roommate I was getting drunk, and grabbed some tequila and beer before heading off to my room (master bedroom, so I had the bathroom and shower in there to myself). My roommate (let's call him Tom) was just happy I broke up with her and sort of shrugged off my declaration to get smashed. I tended to talk big back then. This time, it wasn't all talk. Probably an hour later, he went to Wal-Mart. Tom was there for 30 minutes tops. As he pulls into our apartment complex parking lot on his way home he notices an unusual ruckus - plenty of fire trucks and police vehicles. That's when he realizes someone messed up pretty bad. Doesn't think too much of it until he nears our apartment and sees that it is the source of all the commotion. Probably about 15 firemen/policemen in that tiny space, and my screaming (ex) girlfriend. He promptly left and went back to his car. He just sat in his car for 15 minutes before checking out the scene.
Here's what happened (and I remember snippets, but most of this is pieced together from other peoples' accounts): I got drunk and tried to take a shower. Of this I am certain. I blacked out somewhere between destroying my toilet tank (the bowl survived!) and calling my freshly-broken-up-with ex-girlfriend to remark about how much blood was in my bathroom. When I came to, I was in the hospital trying to console her while marveling at how large the gash in my arm was.

Post by: Phazey on September 25, 2013, 04:28:31 AM
Hi there!

I'm Phazey. One of the older gamers, i'm guessing. Great, great fan of dwarf fortress... so much so that i'll surely get this game.

Great expectations! :D

My favorite games? Oh dear... so many to mention.

Shooters: Doom, Quake, Counter Strike, Team Fortress, Battlefield, Left 4 Dead, Natural Selection, Day Z, etc.

Melee: Mount & Blade: Warband - cRPG, Chivalry - Medieval Warfare

Strategy: Supreme Commander, Planetary Annihilation (can't wait)

Building and creativity: Minecraft (Armadacraft hunger games anyone?), Starmade (...and Terraria i guess)

Misc: Don't Starve, Binding of Isaac, Orcs Must Die, Reus

Anyhoo... i could go on listing games i like and played for hours. Let's talk about Rimworld instead. I like games that are difficult to master. I like complexity and well made mid- and endgame gameplay.

So i'm hoping Rimworld will take a page out of the Dwarf Fortress book and be unrealisticly ambitious, yet churn out some great gameplay mechanics. :)

Also, i love games that use procedurally generate worlds. You know, roguelike games that randomly generate levels. Or minecraft that creates terrain and biomes. Or dwarf fortress that simulates a whole world with civilizations and trade and such. Doesn't actually have to be that detailed, but just the suggestion that there's a bigger world out there is great.

I also have a soft spot for post apocalyptic and dark, grimey games that have a survivalist theme. You know, games that are grim. Worlds where bad stuff has harsh consequences. MMO's with full loot. Games with perma death. Think Fallout theme.

Do you know Rust? It's a game in developement, very alpha still. Bit of a Day Z with crafting and building. Stuff like that. Raiding other players, stealing their resources, getting raided and dying, losing stuff and rebuilding.

But i'm trailing off here. I'm hoping RimWorld will be difficult and will shamelessly borrow all that is good from Dwarf Fortress.

Put the emphasis on plenty of interesting challenges, random events and wave after wave of alien scum, hostile human pirates, weird and dangerous creatures and, of course, the means to face these baddies with intricate defensive structures and a well trained 'army'.

So be inspired by roguelike games, games that generate enviroments and worlds, management and strategy games and tower defence style games.

Good luck!

Why thank you Jake!  ;D Note that i didn't mention the hundreds of bad and mediocre games though.  ::)

And i probably failed to mention a few very important games, like the Civilization series and perhaps quite a few indie game gems like FTL... oh, and The Ship! (dead game from outerlight, was a true gem but never reached a big enough audience to prosper). Anyways, looking forward to tracking RimWorld's developement. Cheers!

Hello from Texas.  I'm a gamer who doesn't play that many different games.  I usually find a game I like and play that for a while.  I'm married, have a kid, and am in graduate school so when I have time to play I like to jump into a familiar and rewarding experience.  I've recently been researching to find that next Great game and came across Rim World.  It really looks up my alley so I'm hoping I get a chance to try it out soon. (Kickstarter Alpha access I assume?)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
RPS Article.  FTL is the first and only rogue-like game I've played and I think its fantastic.
 
-What's your favorite other game?
Fallout 2, Minecraft, Transport Tycoon, Civilization, Final Fantasy Tactics, Agricola, Crokinole. 

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
When I was 10, I sold my top-loading NES and all my games to my friend for $20....

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Classic Frosted Flakes.

Heres a photo of my son.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

The rock paper shotgun article made me aware of this game specifically, but i've been a fan of the dwarf fortress style game for years, many many years, too many years lol :P  I've pretty much played them all.  From the old days of Dungeon Keeper right up to Dwarf Fortress, Gnomaria, Towns, Prison Architect etc etc.  I love the way you are not always in direct control of your minions or followers.  You just guide them and they complete the tasks as they see fit.

-What's your favorite other game?

The big one for me would have to be Dwarf Fortress,  I tried it so many times at the start and gave up because of its massive learning curve, but once you start to master it there is no other game as complex as DF.  I played a lot of Gnomoria to, around 200 hours, it's great fun, very much like Dwarf Fortress but without as much depth or a learning curve steeper than the face of Everest.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Not really a story but it's embarrassing to admit and it is game related.  I have played around 400 hours of the Sims 3 lol.  Yep I have all the expansions and still play off and on once in awhile.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

This one's easy, it's Quaker Porridge Oats.  Followed closely by Shredded Wheat, not that new age hippy crap like the mini SHredded Wheat.  I'm talking about the big brick sized stuff.


Random stuff about me.

I live in the UK, in a county called Cornwall. It rains here, it rains a lot.  I work self employed as an Engineer and play drums,Bass,Guitar as a hobby and thats about all I have to say about me lol.

Can't wait to get my hands on RimWorld,  DF with a Sci-Fi setting? Yes f***ing please good Sir!

Hi laddies!

I guess the main interest comes from RPG which then sent me into the direction of Dwarf Fortress and it's stories. Which really made me excited, but then the realization of how difficult the game actually was made me end up reading stories about it and fantasize (hueh). I am really interested in world building and the randomizing effect the game has. Something about the fact that I can make a world how I want it is very appealing to me. I expect to see great stuff from this game which can possibly pave way for a new spark of interest to this kind of game!

-What's your favorite other game?
I LOVED Bioshock:Infinite (another reason to trust Tynan).
As mentioned i play Prison Architect (love the last update) a real lot (another reason to like RimWorld).

Greetings.

Who am I? A semi-literate JD/MBA working in strategic marketing after a rotten two years in private law practice which proceeded a stint in a level 3 disease research lab--a very short stint.

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general? I happened across dwarf fortress some time ago, loved it, played enough sim city through the years to make the time I spent in college look paltry, and found RimWorld on Reddit and was more than intrigued. In fact, this is the first game I've felt like kickstarting and trying to contribute to in a forum manner.

What's your favourite other game? Hard to say. Sim City through the years has been awesome, but for the recent debacle. Seriously, who creates sim city but limits it to the size of a postage stamp? /rant Though I'm seriously late to the party, Dwarf Fortress might be my new favorite game; Boatmurdered was simply inspirational.

Most embarrassing gaming-related story? Like the fellow who proceeded me, I spent money on Sim City 5. Other than that, I suck at Call of Duty-esque games. I'll blame partial color blindness or something ridiculous like that, but honestly, I just suck.

Best breakfast cereal? Anything where the milk tastes better at the end than it did at the beginning.

What else? Dunno.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I was introduced to RimWorld when I read an article at a site here in Norway, gamer.no. I've played Prison Architect and FTL for some time (though not much lately).

-What's your favorite other game?
Anything that tickles my fancy is a game for me. Not too picky on genres, but some of my favourite ones are: Doom, Dragon Age: Origins, Diablo 2 + LoD, Mass Effect, Prison Architect, FTL: Faster Than Light, Sleeping Dogs, Half-Life, Total War series, Command & Conquer series, Neverwinter Nights, Baldur's Gate and many more.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Lost at Tekken 1 to my 5 year old cousin and his frantic buttonmashing many years ago.  Flashbanged my entire team in America's Army tournament match, caused us all to get dead and lost the match.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Not much of a breakfast kind of guy. Whenever I wake up in the morning I'm more like: "Crap, need to wake up, need coffee!"

About me:

My name is Robin Batchelor. 24 years old from the southern parts of Norway. I'm 6'5'' (1.98 m) and 242 lbs. Been around computers for the most of my life. I enjoy metal and rock music, misc games, movies and books.  Dead tired of a lot of the x3 game devs out there, which is why I tend to look out for more indie games as of late.

I've struggled through the past few years thanks to a serious back injury, but things are looking up for now. Used to work security at clubs, bars, concerts and festivals. Not a big fan of religion what so ever.

It's 1.40 am at time of writing, which means my head is about to explode.

Hi there, I'm new as well. I just heard about RimWorld today from a gamer friend since he was freaking out that an artist/art team was needed. I'm a Pixel/CG artist for a site called Solia Online (http://soliaonline.com/), I have no idea if my style would work but I'm here doing some more spelunking. Overall it looks like a pretty sweet game and am excited to test it out when public alpha goes live eventually.

I'm not much of a gamer and spend most of my time banging against a wall in console games (co-op portal is truly horrors to watch with me), but do enjoy creativity based PC games such as Spore.

Also, Cinnamon Toast Crunch is obviously the best.

1. Who or what is daft73?
   Hello's all. As a long time fan of gaming, and proud father of 2 boys 4 & 15 ... I always find myself looking for games, and I came across this fine piece of work through Quill18's you tube channel.
 
2. What games am I into?
    Well, I play many genres...a few that come to mind are:(in no real order)..Jagged Edge, Bethesda games, Baldur's Gate series, Civ                             
    series, Total War series, Terraria, Age of Wonders series, Europa Universalis series, Fallen Enchantress series, Legend of Dungeon,
    and Rogue Legacy. There are others but these are within the last few months.

3. Most embarrassing gamer moment?
    A long time ago...in a FAR away galaxy when I played Dark Age of Camelot (blows cobwebs and dust off my memory)..Was set in         
    charge of a raid I had NO IDEA about. My friend who was leading had wife aggro or something and had to go, leaving me to take care
    of it. Good Times. I remember the moment well..instantly getting 20 or so whispers from the raid team all 
    saying..."So what now!!??" um,..well, ya so. He never returned...my connection went dead conveniently.  ::)

4. Favorite cereal?
    That is a toss up for me. It is either Cinnamon Toast Crunch, or Frosted mini wheats. Breakfast cereals have been a morning, noon,
    and night affair for me. cheers mates!

Hey there, I'm Fiona.  I'm a 30 year old gamer/student in Oregon.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I did a random search on Kickstarter for nifty games, and found this one.  I saw it seemed similar to Prison Architect in art style (I know there is a difference between the two!).  Loved that game, and I love simulators.  Loved what I saw!
-What's your favorite other game?
Oh man, um... I love the TES series, especially when modded with immersive/survival stuff.  Morrowind is still my favorite, followed closely by Skyrim.  Hoping that Skywind mod makes it.  I've put way too many hours in to FTL and Prison Architect.  Tropico 4 is awesome as well.  Been on a Terraria kick lately too. Sim City 4 and Civ 4 are also favorites.

I love Life cereal! (I don't know what's wrong with me)

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I found this game in the steam greenlight section, looked into it on kickstarter and am right now a backer of this interesting game. What really interested me is the graphical similiarity to prison architect. I already like the game but found the story a bit...

What's your favorite other game?
Hmm, that one isn't easy to say. I like a lot of games. Mostly RPGs, but also a little Simulation, Action and Strategy from time to time.
Right now my favorite would be most likely Assassin's Creed 3, Skyrim, Deus Ex and X3.

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

I'm Tailed, or Martin, whichever you prefer, Dutch gamer and curious bastard, with a weakness for good stories and cute characters (both together and apart ^^;; ), and with a nasty habit of remembering far too many needless details... Anyway, on to the obligitary questions.. *shuffles a few papers*

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I found RimWorld thanks to curious browsing on Kickstarter, and the sheer potential drew me in. That and the possiblity of building a giant, self-sustaining colony. Always DID prefer the base-building and tech-ing in Age of Empire over the fighting, but I digress. To be honest, I don't think I ever played any of the spiritual predessors of RimWorld, no FTL (tho I WAS eying it on Steam) not PA. DEFINITLY no DF (tho I heard of it).. I think only Theme Hospital would count.. Does it? *shrugs*

What's your favorite other game?
THAT, is a question for the ages.. Sure, I have a preferance for RPGs, and some open-world games have sucked hours from my life at a consistant pace (tbh, Skyrim is the only one I can shout out from the top of my head tho ^^;; ), but I've also played hours upon hours of multi-player games on the consoles I've shared with mates. Not to mention the online MMOs and League of Legends (please don't eat me ówò).. So, err.. I play everything I find interesting (tho keep me the FRAK away from horror and tension/anticipation-based games, they seem to play on my vivid imagination more then I'd like >.> ) and a lot of things in between.. The ones with a good story or characters have drawn me in the most tho..

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
FAR too many to count. From freaking out at escape sequences, to screaming at my screen beacuse of scare/tension sequences to even being scared half-to-death while watching a friend play.. I think it was Resident Evil 4..
Let's just say I don't keep a list, because otherwise the list would be longer then I care to know ^^;;

What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
*coughs weakly* Bread? I don't eat breakfast cereals.. I eat bread.. Mostly with chocolate sprinkles..

Ladies and gentlemen, I am AJsarge, and this is my intro post.  I tossed my cash into the kickstarter after quill did his video.  The similarity to dwarf fortress with most of the complexity and a gui to boot is huge to me.  The reward-to-price ratio was so awesome this is actually the first project I've backed.

This is an oddball in my collection of games.  I was a big RTS person back in the Tiberian Sun days of Command & Conquer, but transitioned into mostly console FPS when that series went into hibernation after Generals. At the same time, I was and still am a huge fan of flight arcade games like Ace Combat and flight sims in general. Despite the overwhelming popularity of Halo, I found myself back on computer around the time Crysis rolled out and have never really transitioned back.  Arma 2 before DayZ was glorious, and I put thousands of hours into that game before finding a real job with the USAF.

I avoid Apple products as much as I can, and the spread of my computer hardware is from a desktop custom built to run flight sims and Arma 3 at full graphics, to a ruggedized touch-screen laptop I take with me on the road, and very recently a Surface Pro with Windows 8.

If RimWorld gets touch screen support as simple as enlarged gui elements and the ability to move the view via left-click and drag, I will be very happy.  Same thing if any screen size is supported, with multiple monitors automatically detected, and the GUI is kept within the main monitor while a second is used for a map view of the current location or an extension of the main view for 3+ monitors.

I would tell you if i knew I promise. But in short im in my mid twenties I live in New Zealand and I am a pharmacist.

How did i find rimworld?
Saw it on KS and being a lover of DF and other rogue like games i immediately had a melt down and backed this game....

Favorite game... Thats a hard one i tend to play alot of RPGs have spent an unhealthy number of hours on MOBAs and lose a large chunk of my life every time a new civ game comes out. If I had to give a title id say Alpha Centari.

Embarrassing gaming related story.
When I was but a young boy selling my soul to diablo 2, I cried like a little bitch when I got hacked and lost my immortal kings set... The trauma still lives with me to this day.

Post by: Dejix on October 05, 2013, 07:43:22 PM
My story starts on any normal day where I prograstinate (avoid programming a prototype). Drawn away from getting more programming done, I find myself sinking time into viewing internet content relating to games (or market research as I like to call it). At some point, while spawning multiple tabs for efficient viewing, I following a link from IndieDB to a game called Rimworld. Thus I find myself here excited to see how it turns out as I have lost a good chunk of my personal time to games such as Dwarf Fortress, Prison Architect, and a plethora of random content rogue-likes.

I cannot call upon a favourite game as I have no universal title for such a thing. I play such a large volume of video games that a single favourite is impractical. I can however give an honorable mention to Half Life as it was the first of its kind in character and story development.

Embarrassing stories must be quickly forgotten in my life as I cannot recall anything worthy of sharing.  ;)

The best breakfast cereal, with milk (or whatever), is Honey Nut Cheerios. Nothing beats that sweet after cereal liquid left in the bowl. On the other hand, the best for snacking is Mini-Wheats. I'm especially a fan of the brown sugar or maple frosted ones.

I'm Gargrant.  I build AI systems for training and also predictive simulation models of social groups.  I've seen narrative story-teller systems before and I am also really excited about the story potential.  I tend to make my own stories even in games that have their own prescribed story arcs.

How I found about Rimworld?
My friend posted it on Facebook.  I love the idea and the videos to date. 

Most favourite other games?
1.  The Romance of the Three Kingdoms Historical Simulations Series by KOEI.  I've been playing those (and getting trounced by my father) since I was quite young with the NES.  They haven't released one in quite some time, but they ported it to PC and it's my go-to for idle gaming.
2.  Also earlier variants of SimCity - I haven't tried the most recent version due to the widespread bad reports
3.  Mecha games (Mechwarrior and Heavy Gear)- I love customizing the loadouts of the machines
4.  Mount & Blade: Warband - which has enormous potential for greatness but the underlying political-social simulation was too shallow

Most embarrassing game related moment:
- Playing D&D with adults when I was 11 - I ate too many cookies, and had to ... toss them

The Best Cereal:
As someone already said, it is obviously Cinnamon Toast Crunch (assuming you like sugar ... and cinnamon)

Random Facts:
- I dance often - pretty much all the time I'm not working or playing games
- My eyes are different colors, one blue and one green

I am really excited for RimWorld!

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Well I discovered RimWorld while browsing Steam Greenlight and fell (without contusions, hopefully) on this game. It raised my interest pretty fast because I quite like those kind of games (yeah, sounded more epic in my mind >.>)

What's your favorite other game?
Ah good question, I don't think I have A favorite game as I play pretty every kind of game from mainstream FPS (like the bf series) to RTS (AoE/RoN), turn based strategy/tactical games (Civ,Fire Emblem), RPG, MoBA... And I also play paper RPG with my friends.
But I think I burnt the most time on FPS...

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
The first time I almost beat one of my friend in civ4, and all he found was nuking all my cities just before turning all IAs against me. I never played civ with him again. Because he's a dick.

What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Cheeseburger may be on the top of my list.

Who am I?
Haha I'm repeatedly reminded I'm no-one at the moment. I'm 18, unemployed, finishing up my A-Level Qualifications before applying to Uni and I like to think I've had a pretty interesting life.

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I discovered Rimworld quite by accident actually. I was referred to Kickstarter (my 1st time using it btw) by one of my favourite LP-ers "Gopher" for another project called "Unwritten: Echoes of Twilight". Out of necessity I've grown to be careful with my money and wanted a look at both the intricacies and potential in both Unwritten and Kickstarter, it's a very nice concept really and I quickly came across Rimworld. I've never been a fan of indie games traditionally; never heard of DF, FTL or PA before this forum, but this called to my nerdy base-building, sim-loving side.

What's your favorite other game?
A loaded question... I don't think I could say to be honest, as I mentioned previously I'm not usually into indie games though I've been an avid gamer and private modder since childhood. God I miss the Megadrive lol. At the moment I'm enthralled in the Mass Effect Trilogy, Skyrim, Black & White 2, Garry's Mod, Sims 3 (reinstalled again lol), and there are some guilty pleasure games coming out soon that I'll likely also forsake study for  :-\

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I'm not sure I have one to be honest, I don't get embarrassed easily. Or at all really.
Still I suppose a constant source of dismay for me as I fail HARD at Battlefield 3, CoDs (even earliest ones) and every shooter which isn't a sci-fi for some reason.

What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Both sad and proud in a weird way to say I'm not usually up for breakfast and if I am I have to skip it to get to college on time. So recently it's been breakfast at Birds or Costa  :P

Who am I?
I am Greiger, I'm a 30 year old college student/computer repairman.  Been playing videogames regularly since I was 8.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Dungeon Keeper was my first, but the most influential was Dwarf Fortress.  I was one of those people that loved games like Warcraft and Command and conquer but I wasn't actually good at it competitively, I would just build these massive invincible fortresses that could never feasibly get built in a real game.
I remember on stage 3 of the Warcraft 1 demo I actually spent days building a sprawling metropolis that took up half the map and actually hit the number of buildings cap.  Good times.

-What's your favorite other game?
I'm a fan of a lot of indie roguelike games, (they're cheaper than AAA titles and usually just as good) but Dwarf Fortress still holds a special place in my heart. After that comes X-Com 1, TFTD, and Apocalypse, Final Fantasy 6, a roguelike game called Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead, and an old space combat sim series called Freespace.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Playing Freespace 1 online.  On a custom mission that I designed.  The map was a basic 2 capital ships duking it out map with fighters and bombers on both sides.  I was flying a bomber and double launched a pair of the big bombs onto my own capital ships weapons subsystem, it blew up soon after.  I was wondering why it was so hard to target...  Made worse because I designed the mission.  Me and my friends all laughed about it at the end though.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Cinnamon Toast Crunch, followed closely by Cocoa Pebbles.  Both no milk, milk just makes them soggy.

I saw Mathas's video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyRoCJPrQrQ) on the Indie Stone forums and the subsequent Kickstarter campaign. I was very impressed with what I saw so decided to back the project and sign up to the forums. Looking forward to watching the game develop.

My other most frequented game currently is Project Zomboid, of which I am a moderator.

My current favourite cereal (I, also, consume large quantities of cereal. So much so I keep my eating habits mostly a secret) are those little chocolately square hazelnut things. They're delicious.

I'm a Canadian working on my bachelors degree in management with a direction towards project management. Before that I was working towards becoming a biologist and my user name comes from projects on lobster shell disease (http://seagrant.gso.uri.edu/factsheets/lobster_shell_disease.html) and ions moving across the roots of carnivorous sundew plants (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drosera_capensis). I still maintain a colony of sundews descended from the specimens I experimented on along with other carnivorous plant species.

My introduction to RimWorld was through the Recently Launched section on Kickstarter because that is how I normally find out about Kickstarter projects. I was the 17th backer on RimWorld and according to the counter on my profile (http://www.kickstarter.com/profile/iankragh) it was the 623rd project I've backed since 2011.

FTL: Faster Than Light (http://www.ftlgame.com/) is my current favourite game. I played a lot of Tremulous (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tremulous) around 2006 to 2008.

One time I accidentally destroyed an egg (respawn point) in Tremulous during the sudden death period because I didn't realize it was sudden death and wanted to reclaim the build points to build an acid tube or trapper since there were already so many eggs around. You can't reclaim build points in sudden death so my team was down one more egg than it otherwise would have which meant respawning times could be longer for some people.

For breakfast cereals I prefer rotating between Frosted Flakes, Honeycombs, Froot Loops and Frosted Mini-Wheats.

-What's your favorite other game?
Planescape Torment and Fallout for unforgettable stories and Spellcross (excellent turn base strategy)
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Probably when I had to explain in hospital how I broke my knuckles and cut my hand while playing Football Manager. I just hate it when you loose match against your city rival by two goals in last minute . Let's just say I won't punch display ever again... even if wouldn't hurt so bad now that I have LCD.

Saw it on RPS, Quill18, somewhere. I was free today so I decided to put down $73 USD (Hah, your pathetic dollar is less than mine) and waste the day looking and these forums and shizzle (Not a NEET.)
I heartily enjoy playing anything I can get my grubby, turnip-greased hands on. Don't waste all my time on Gaming, but it is a nice pastime of mine that I use to relax.

Hey everyone, I'm Villain, 23, currently living in Australia.
My sister introduced me to this game while she was browsing Kickstarter - she took one look at it and knew immediately it was something I'd like, haha.  I love these kinds of games so this right up my alley.  Went in for the 30$ tier and am now excited for the Kickstarter to end.

In general, I'm a big fan of survival and management based games, but I also enjoy strategy; and anything with good story and characters is a plus.  Warcraft 2 and Sarcraft 2 were some of my first games and they're still old favorites.  Currently, I'm playing Don't Starve, which I'm terrible at despite how much fun I have with it.

as for embarassing gaming stories? well, not a story exactly, but if you give me dialogue options in a game I will literally spend hours laboring over which one to choose.

if I had to pick one though, probably Fruitloops.

Realistic graphics like that don't age well. Just look at the (at the time) awesome terrain in Comanche. Looks like pixel soup nowadays.

Hello all! I'm Dohon and I found out about RimWorld via the Bay12 Forums. I love to game, although Real Life is really cutting into the hours that I can devote to my favourite hobby. Nonetheless, I was really impressed by RimWorld and decided to chip in. This is the second time that I backed a Kickstarter project because I'm really sceptical about seeing any return on my investment. Ludeon Studios managed to convince me to overcome that fear.

Looking forward to seeing this project develop!

Say as much or as little as you like. But you could answer questions like:
-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
-- SimCity! I've always loved survival games with mechanics (Like Minecraft with buildcraft etc...) I love making automation and watching things scurry about under the fury of the pointer! ALL GLORY TO THE GREAT POINTER!
-What's your favorite other game?
Arma!
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
In my Arma 2 we had a public night, I was the pilot of a Chinook and it was fully loaded with public players, and members of my clan and others..... needless to say I shamefully crashed :(
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Does bacon count as a cereal?

I saw a scary scary lack of photos! (Scary!) It's like it is the internet or something!
So here's a picture of me at Gamescom 2013 in Germany talking to one of the developers of Project Spark about how in-depth their "brains" are, turns out pretty deep. Also got to try out a ton of stuff but unfortunately on the business day there are not many awesome cosplayers, but there aren't 5 hour lines either so it's a give and take.

Post by: RoseyNineOneOne on October 14, 2013, 10:04:53 PM
Hey there! I'm RoseyNineOneOne, or simply shortened to Rosey as most people may know me and acknowledge me as. I caught wind of this through Facepunch if I recall correctly, and quickly rushed to pledge $20CAD (or $19USD) for the alpha. Would shell out more if I could, but ah, I don't have huge paychecks.

I've been playing Dwarf Fortress (as I'm sure many of you have before) for a little while now, and I'm in love with the game, and I love games with similar systems but in different setting and with different gameplay focuses. Like Stonehearth's focus on story, moddability, and completely customizable city building. Or Rimworld's apparent focus on story, encounters, and kind-of 'post-apocalypse' (I know its not, but the setting kind of fits the bill) SCI-FI feel. So I dropped a pledge onto this gal.

Following those suggestions in the OP... my favorite game of all time is probably Warcraft III, but it is almost basically sharing the spot with Dwarf Fortress and Team Fortress 2. Of course, these games can bring about interesting stories, so I'll fling in a little Dwarf Fortress story that happened to me once...

This'll be a short one, don't want to take up all of your time. I decided to embark on an evil forest area, to see how it'd go. I began digging into the nearest hill. Before I could get it all the way dug out and have a stockpile and a meeting area, an evil cloud appeared. It floated over to my dwarves, and before I could get all of the buggers inside, my fairly large and tough pack animals and two of my dwarves decided to stand there and enjoy being immediately transformed into zombies, despite being burrowed inside. They all turned into zombies, and charged into my fortress. The fight lasted a while, and many of my dwarves were killed. Many of the zombies were struck down, but they rose again a few moments later. Eventually the expedition leader was all who was left, armed with the iron sword I embarked with. He ran out of the fortress, somewhat wounded, and skirted around the edge of the map for a while. A few moments later, a massive pack of badgers showed up on the map and started a massive battle with the zombies. The zombies managed to win, but only a few were still left standing. The expedition leader decided to charge back into battle, slicing down two of his former comrades in a prolonged battle. One they were down, he was charged by one of our pack animals, a zombie muskox. It pushed him to the ground and crushed his skull. So was the end of Doomedfortress (that was the randomly generated name, pretty damn accurate). I now erect statues of that expedition leader in any of my fortresses. Him and some vampire I locked in the caverns who managed to kill two Forgotten Beasts with his bare hands.

And obviously, Cinnabun Cereal is the best. I think that was the name, they were just mini crunchy-cinnamon rolls. I don't know if they are still in stores, haven't been able to find them in quite some time.

My fav games at the moment are "Prison Architect" i love this kind of gameplay and the style of grafic.
For few mounth i switched the genre to indie games and iam lucky to spent my freetime in it.

Why Rimworld... i had hurt my leg for few weeks so i had time to search the internet (kickstarter) of new nice gameprojects.
So i found rimworld and i was suprised wich great idea it is. it needed no longer time and i backed it. long story short its a nice looking game and i love it to construct and build something up. This game have tons of potential to make it awesome =)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I played Dward Fortress casually for a year or so, before deciding it was too complicated to stick with. I've been floating around for ages looking for a similar game with a style I like. I saw this game on Kickstarter and was immediately attracted to it.

-What's your favorite other game?

My favourite games of all time are Morrowind and Counter Strike. Lately been playing a lot of Persona 4 on my Vita.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
To be honest, I was not looking for any game at the moment. However, a good friend of mine told me about RimWorld and after reading the kickstarter page I felt in love!

-What's your favorite other game?
I do not have much time for games these days, I am starting my PhD... But on the top of my head the last game I have been playing is Clash of Clans.

Hi everybody!

I'm from Paris, France.
I'm mostly a boardgames and a retro video games (8, 16 & 32 bit) player.
Since Counter Strike near 2004-2005, I haven't played on my computer!
But I like original games that allow a great playabilty.

I found RimWorld by chance, by searching a new concept of boardgame on Kickstarter. I was attracted by the "retro" graphics and the sci fi theme.

I really hope that the fund raising will help Tynan to make much as possible to improve his game!

Anyway, I think this game will occupy me and my wife (she plays too) for a very long time.

Post by: SleepyFox on October 22, 2013, 05:18:59 AM
Fox here.

Rimworld?
Found it on Kickstarter, kind of at random. Being a lover of buildy-type games (and as much as I love DF, the interface is unfathomable, so I tackle it every... six to eight months.) and fortress games and little strategy games, I saw this and was all starry-eyed. Being a streamer (insomniacgamers.net), I jumped on the opportunity to see if I could give this beautiful little beast some loving coverage. It's been a hit (both personally and with the community) so far and with how solid everything is already, it can only get better and better.

Favorite other game?
I honestly can't easily choose any single favorite. I jump around a lot. I revisit old favorites. If I had to really think about it, Total Annihilation is probably still tops my list. Genuinely fun RTS with concepts like physics-governed cannon shells, 3-d terrain, and persistent wreckage of destroyed units. Beautiful. Nothing like seeing a forest filled with smoking hulks after a big fight.

Embarrassing story?
...I've made not one, not two, but three full iterations (and in two different games) phallus-shaped helicopters live on-stream. (The original can be seen Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kg6T3-cMu10) and it's mostly safe for work if not for language. Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts)

Cereal?
Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Krispies, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, smoked sausage and scrambled eggs, maple & brown sugar oatmeal, won ton soup. ... breakfast sometimes overlaps into dinner, and dinner sometimes overlaps into breakfast. But I think Fruity Pebbles are a favorite.

Hello, everyone! DeltaV here.

I've actually yet to back the game (Don't kill me yet, going to preorder RimWorld off the website later today), but it looks quite fun. I found the game on Quill18's channel, actually, and it seemed like fate because I was looking for a good Dwarf-Fortress style game and this one seems to fit me perfectly.

My favorite other game would probably be Civilization V, Don't Starve or Kerbal Space Program. I've been a huge fan of alpha-and-beta indie-style games ever since I bought Minecraft for like $15 years ago and got hundreds of hours out of it.

My most embarrassing story? Hmm, that's a tough one. Once in Kerbal Space Program I couldn't figure out how to fire astronauts so I put the ones I didn't want into a giant death rocket one by one and launched them to their deaths. In the Sims 3 once, my Sim's rug, laptop and oven all caught on fire at once, each from completely unrelated circumstances (The rug was too close to the fireplace, the oven was cooking food I'd forgotten about, and my sim had just unsuccessfully tried to upgrade his laptop), destroying half the house before anyone could put it out.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch is the best breakfast cereal.

I'm a 35-year old aspiring game developer from Columbus, GA USA. I'm in school for game development, with about a year to go. I'm into most genres of games except for sports. I used to be really into competitive fighting games until the local arcade scene died. Now, I play mostly co-op when I play multiplayer games.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I was browsing Kickstarter and came across it. I had visions of Minecraft and Terraria, but from the top! I like the aspect of the game having some sort of driving story, along with the survival and building aspects.

-What's your favorite other game?
Mega Man 2? Castlevania? Phantasy Star IV? Not sure, but it's old...

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I used to be a really competitive fighting game player (in the days of arcades). I was pretty good at Marvel vs. Capcom, and had even played in some tournaments. I even placed second in one. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 came out, and the first day I played it, I couldn't wrap my brain around the new four-button attack layout with the two assist buttons. Nobody in the arcade could until the end of the day. Long story short, I got beat by a kid who was spamming out his assist characters in front of everyone I knew in the arcade on the day we got it.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I saw it on Steam by incident and fell in love immediately. Then i watched some videos of it and was even more charmed of this gameplay-beauty.

-What's your favorite other game?
This one is difficult, but i think Jagged Alliance 2 gets the medal.

I'm Sam Wissa.

I'm a 35 year old IT project manager in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Moved to canada from Cairo, Egypt 25 Years ago. Back in that country my parents enrolled me in some after-school basic-programming classes; except I was like 7 and the other students were 12ish, so all I learned was load *.*. However, I got hooked on the ZX-spectrum computer.

Got my B.Sc in Comp Sci because I figured if I like PC games, then Comp Sci seems natural right? Yeah - no. At some point in time someone realised I had a rare IT skill known as business/customer relations management; which threw me down the Business Analyst and PM path.

My earliest and fondest memories of immersing myself in PC games would be playing F19 stealth fight. Waking up early before school to fly and stealthy evade doppler and pulse radar installations.

Since then, I've really enjoyed the space/scifi genre of games; some of the best memories I've got are playing:

Star control 2
Xcom
Freespace
X3 (so immersive - if you're easily immersed. Thanks Germans!)

What introduced you to rimworld or to this style of game
I've been dying to find an immersive space city/colony/base/whatever sim and Rim World seems spot on. The site spacesector.com is a place I visit multiple times per day.

What is your other favourite game?
X3 is probably my other favourite game at this time.

Favourite Breakfast Cereal?
Whatever my wife gets but it used to Cinnamon Toast Crunch

most embarrassing game related story?

Got a couple of short ones:

While playing Sims Medieval (Hey! I like story driven and immersion! Don't hate!) - "My" character, the wizard, finally got to marry the Bard. Later that night during their first bedroom experience, the Bard got preggo. I threw up my hands and exclaimed "the hell you are! Time to reload". My brand new Shiney wife was sitting in my office on her iPad. I had to explain why children required a "reload".

The second scenario was while playing Crusader Kings 2.

Sam (talking to the screen): "What a stupid woman! Oh well, time to die wifey"
Real Wife: "Sorry?"
Sam: "Baby no, my in-game wife suddenly decided to have less sex so I gotta kill her." (fertility reduction! No! Bad!)
Real Wife: "..."
Sam: "It's ok though because my mother hates her... so win win. Also, she's actually older than my mother I only married her cuz I had to. Now it's time to find a hotty!"
Real Wife: "You play terrible games..."

FTL is one the best games to be released in the later years.

Hey everyone!

I think I am one of the younger ones here, I'm 16 but turning 17 pretty soon. My parents are International teachers so we travel a lot living in places like Kuwait, Serbia, Burkina Faso, etc... I was born in New Zealand but was raised for the first 7 years of my life in Canada. I am really interested in film and hope to create a career out of it.

This is a short video I made about a month ago in Burkina Faso, check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-p_0_u5ARbU

How I got introduced to Rimworld?
I was watching Prison Architect videos on Stuffpluss's channel and I saw a video about Rimworld, watched it and loved the game immediately.

Favourite other games?
I am a real fan of the Total War series haven't got my hands on Rome 2 yet but the original Rome was the first downloaded/CD game I ever played, the rest were all browser based. So Rome: Total War holds a special place in my heart ;D and is one of my favourite games.

Minecraft is up there too, I have spent countless hours digging for diamonds and crying when I accidentally fall in lava. I don't want to go all hipster on you :P but I've been playing minecraft since early beta so beta 1.3 or something like that basically before wolves.

Runescape played that for ages as a kid I got to like level 73 mining (which as an 8-year-old provided me with the feeling of accomplishment and the need to brag to friends :P)

Other games I love are Stronghold: Crusader (or for a bit more fun Stronghold: Crusader Extreme), Warlight its a free browser based 'risk' like game but the community makes its own maps and the level of content is ridiculous, any of the old Tycoon games like RCT3 or ZT, and also the classic version of Ace of Spades before Jagex go their hands on it  >:( (you can still get the classic AoS if you search for it)

Most embarrassing gaming related story?
I have done stupid things in games before but nothing truly embarrassing.

I haven't had cereal in like 3 years but when I lived in Canada my favourite was Honey Nut Cheerios  :D

1st of all. Great Game. Been playing for like 4 hours straight and not getting tired with it "That's a good sign for me as a gamer?. Randy Random rocks. I love to think that this is just the Alpha Stage. Why? Coz i already love it even though it's incomplete and i'm not showing any signs of getting tired of it. Good part is, it will get better.

What i love? Actually everything that's good. Bioshock FTW. God i love that game. When i read about someone whose involve w/ Bioshock created an indy game, it got my attention in which lead me here, Rimworld.

I play Prison Architect so that added the interest even more since i got addicted with that game too. But in general, i love any game that's good. Specially those w/ strategy and tactics. It's my 1st time joining a forum and i'm very choosy with games.

Fighting: Tekken. Platform: Megaman Shooter: Bioshock. Action-Adventure. Resident Evil "The old once" & Metal Gear. RPG: Final Fantasy "The old once" 7 to X-2. Simulation: Sim City and Tropico. Strategy "TowerDefense" DOTA. Strategy "Turn Based": Civilization V. Strategy "Realtime": Company of Heroes. And alot more, i guess it's safe to say that i played every genre there is. Skyrim, Borderlands, Fallout series, Far Cry, Metro, Minecraft, PORTAL :), Saints Row, Spore, Witcher, Tomb Raider, Torchlight, Xcom.

I think Indie games are getting interesting nowadays. Reus, Prison Architect, Cloudberry Kingdom and lots more.Rimworld. I see potential in this game and i really believe it will be great.

Most Embarassing. Dunno if this counts as embarassing since i stayed up all night to earn them. Eyebags :D from playing. Earned some with this game :D. Playing fast forward. Adrenaline rush :D. Better than coffee i give you that.

Favorite Cereal. Uhm. Sorry. I'm Asian. So Rice for me. I'm Filipino. Philippines.

From my posted pics. Hehehe. Just some some i've been doing w/ the game. I dream to make a Cemetery in this game. Big enough to house 300 holes :D. Not even thunderstorm can stop it from filling up.

Take note for those whose having problems w/ too many dead raiders thing. You can set an 8x5 Cemetery block and leave the middle empty. So when your full up, you can place 2 Blast Mines in it. Detonate and the holes will be empty by then.

So very excited for this project.

I'm Steve, 39. Currently substitute teaching, but have spent almost 15 years teaching freshman composition at the university level. Also helped develop and administrate writing centers on a few campuses.

I cut my teeth on the Commodore 64. At 10, dad took me to check out a 'used computer' and when the guy loaded up Microprose's Gunship, I was sold. All-time favorite game--Wasteland. I was addicted to LPMuds long before Evercrack and periodically log in to keep my Batmud character active. These days, I've only really been enamored with roguelikes, namely DCSS and Cataclysm DDA. I've for some reason not given Dwarf Fortress a true stab at getting 'into.'

Rimworld really has set the groundwork to be something tremendous. I'm a huge fan of the 'background' story that becomes the narrative while the 'game' sets the groundwork. Again, I'm surprised DF has  eluded me thus far.

A semi-game-related embarrassing story is when the an admin at Texas A&M tasked me with meeting other Aggie administrators at a  meeting...in Second Life. I'd never completely been sold on SL as having tremendous educational potential (for writing/composition at least),  but at one point, non-techie profs were buying the snake oil--in a big way. So silly me, I spent a few bucks and showed up at the meeting using a perfect avatar of Pooh's Piglet. I literally floated into an academic regalia at the designated time with my handful of balloons.. Seated at a table were several A&M bigwigs, all dressed to the nines--crisp maroon suits and ties. I was one-part flabbergasted  and all-parts mortified that I'd shown to represent my unit as a 10-inch pig. Colorful balloons in one hand, one solo dandelion in the other. Ugh.

Greetings Ladies and Gents,

I'm Mike, hailing originally from the Bay Area of California. I'm 23 and a freshman undergrad at Princeton University. I plan on studying electrical engineering so long as I can keep my head above the water in the engineering prerequisite courses. I had a late start because I ended up doing 5 years in the Marine Corps as a close air support controller, martial arts instructor, and operational developmental team member for digital command and control systems, finally leaving active service as a sergeant.

RimWorld caught my eye when I saw a few people stream it on twitch.tv. I used to play a lot of COD UO, Red Orchestra, and BF3, but between the military and the rigorous course load at Princeton, I've started to look into more indie/roguelike games in order to make the most of the limited play time I get. I watch a lot of Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica so RimWorld's setting just seemed right up my alley.

In addition to playing video games, I'm a crossfitter and a firearms aficionado.

Hey, I'm jesus_h_pizza! I've had this screenname in some form across forums and games for years, used as a once temporary account name back in the days of marathoning games in my friend's basement.

I live on the Northwest Coast in the US, enjoy beer, good food and cooking, gaming (of course) and hanging out with my cats and girlfriend on lazy days.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I recently discovered kickstarter, and found this trawling for more games to support. I've always had an itch to scratch since "Stronghold" for sim building with action elements. The concept looked solid, and gameplay(!) at the funding stage sold me.
-What's your favorite other game?
Oh man, this question... Too many. I love MML, Minecraft, SotC, and many current and classic titles. I play most genres and a mixture of indie and AAA titles.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
That's difficult to say. I do still jump every time my tool breaks in Minecraft. EVERY. TIME.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Suffice to say, my cereal cabinet has plenty of kid choices. I don't have kids.

Hi! I'm Ben.  I used to be in the Air Force (Tech Control, circuit gods!) but about 5 years ago left that job and took a job in Iowa.  Now I'm a Systems Engineer for a major trucking company.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

Youtuber Scott Manley. Long story short, I play KSP and he is my favorite KSP youtuber.  He does little vids occasionally on games I've never heard of.  I play a bit of Dwarf Fortress, but not often because I find its interface and concepts a little overly burdensome.  Seeing this space colony dwarf fortress-esque game with bandit raids and strange squirrel creatures peaked my interest.

-What's your favorite other game?
Almost certainly Kerbal Space Program.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Back in college I wound up getting absolutely hooked on Halo, and was always going to LAN parties and hooking up 4 xboxes to play 8 on 8 matches.  I was playing probably 6-7 hours of halo a day.  Turns out girlfriends don't like that very much and she very publically dumped me in the dining hall in front of about 350 students, screaming about how much Halo sucks.  Interestingly, met a girl who enjoyed playing halo because of that screaming she did.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Frosted flakes with a glass of homebrewed beer on the side.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I learned about Rimworld on RPS, and been following it since then.
I've always been a strategy and RPG games nerd, been playing them since the good old Amiga 500 day, just to rattle off a few of the games i've played, Dune, Dune 2 (still an awesome game), the Europa Universalis series 1 to 4, Hearts of Iron series, 1 to 3, Victoria 1 and 2, Crusader Kings 1 and 2 (yeah, pretty big fan of paradox interactive), C&C Redalert, Planescape: Torment, BG1 and 2, Icewind Dale 1 and 2, the Stronghold series, DF, Civilization (all of them pretty much) and the list goes on and on and....

-What's your favorite other game?

I think my favorite games so far are - Dune 2 (which really got me into strategy games), Planescape: Torment for the awesome story, Baldurs Gate 2 and Europa Universalis 3. But there's always room for another game on the list.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Hi, I'm James. I'm from the UK and am currently living in Cornwall; the place that all the tourists come to because it doesn't rain as much as the rest of England...

Been playing console games for a while, but I have only recently discovered PC games, starting with Kerbal Space Program. As a result of playing KSP, I subbed to Scott Manley on the YouTubes. A few days back he did a video featuring RimWorld, and I was pretty much sold instantly.

10 minutes later I had backed the Kickstarter and was watching the rest of the video. Looking forward to getting my hands on the pre-alpha in a few weeks, the game is showing a lot of promise!  ;D

Hey! I'm Saint, been playing games since I was old enough to hold a controller. My grandma literally taught me how to play games, she actually beat my copy of Final Fantasy 8 before I did! I just got this game a few days ago and have completely put down Pokemon for a bit just to focus on this! I really like this game and its style, and the way the framework all goes together and makes everything happen.

I can't wait for the update but it will take a while even with this before I get bored even a bit! I love Prison Architect and Dwarf Fortress both, and have done well in each, as well as this one! As far as questions, I will only answer with my opinion on breakfast cereal, and that is to say that I agree with Tynan on the Frosted Mini Chex, those are amazing.

Good to be here though! I will be sharing my stories with you about how my colonies are doing. I currently have two that I switch between. One on regular Cassandra, and one on Tough! The Tough one is actually doing well, to my surprise, but I am almost 25+ cycles in on the other one. I've had some great amounts of luck in this game, both amazingly bad and good, and I'm sure they will make you laugh as hard as I did.

Anyway, nice to meet everyone!

I'm an older gamer and anime fan. Been gaming since the days of the first Nintendo and Atari etc. Same with anime, been a anime fan since the days when you sent a VHS tape to a Fansub group and they sent you the show recorded on it back (though never did it myself). Been modding and and editing games forever, and run two website of my own. I'm also Jack of all trades and master on none as well. Can do about anything from baking a cake from scratch to fixing a Car or PC but not a master by any means of those skill sets.

And yes I have a Video Game and Anime addiction (My full 6 TB of hard drive space will attest to that), and no I don't see it as a problem.

As to the questions:
Had a guildmate post about the game about 6 hours before the kickstarter end and drop 20 buck. Been watch Youtube of people playing the pre-alpha all day since. Been playing games like this for a while, Such as Towns, and similar style games like Black and White 2 etc.

My favorite other game.. got a lot, most I've been playing for 15+ years. Stars! from the Windows 3.11 days (still play it in a WinXP VM), Total Annihilation, All the Quake games, Minecrack er I mean Minecraft, Ragnarok Online... hell here a screen shot of my desktop (Warn: Those with OCD should not look as this image as it will cause mental stress or breakage): http://gentlerainofserenity.com/images/CurrentDecktopNew.jpg (http://Current Desktop). Actual just a tiny portion of the games I own, my start Menu (use a program to revert it to windows 98 style) is worse. Steam says I one 132, I know I own at least 2 or 3 (maybe 4x) times that outside of steam.

Most embarrassing gaming-related story.....None that I can think of right off my head except the few time I've blown up or almost blown up my base in Various minecraft mods because of stupid wiring or plumbing issues. Seem Hot Dry boiler don't like water, and 32volt machines don't like 2048 volts. Or the one time with a Particle accelerator that I just happen to forget to complete before turning it on.... At least it was a nice explosion. Or the few times I through pin but not the grenade in Minecraft and Planetside 2....... Okay so there a quite a few.

Cereal....hmm Bran Flakes or Corn Chex

Hey everyone! I found this game about two days before the KS ended and was lucky enough to be able to back it before it closed. I had some time this morning, so I thought I'd be a good little oaf and join. Really looking forward to getting to play!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I saw Scott Manley's YouTube LP and thought RimWorld looked really sweet. Then watched a bunch more LPs before realizing most of them didn't know what they were doing. I thought I could do better, probably because I'm a control freak lol

-What's your favorite other game?
At the moment? Probably KSP or GTA 5.... though working full time and doing all those pesky adult things doesn't leave me with as much time to play as when I was younger.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I don't know if it's "most embarrassing' more than a funny twist, but when I showed my GF KSP. I was demonstrating all the cool stuff you can do, where you can go, what you can build etc. and she asked "do they explode?" That's all she cares about, seeing explosions lol

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I typically don't eat breakfast since my work day starts so early. Besides, breakfast cereal is just the way for the Man to keep you down.

Hello All, I'm Tinned and sometimes I'm mistaken for an Abominable Artificial Intelligence. :3

I found Rimworld through LP's done by Mathas Games. To be honest I've never actually played a game similar to Rimworld so I'm eager to try this when it releases. Before now I've been a big fan of Guns of Icarus. Well I mean I still am, it's no doubt that Moba games captivate me with their pvp and coop play. Guns of Icarus is just even more detailed.
Speaking of which, bring up a funny moment playing GOI. I end up piloting the ship because our captain felt it necessary to go off and repair the guns. Anyways I take the ship into a combat situation and set the ship on a collision course with this Galleon (we're flying a ramming pyramidion so we're all set for this). But just at the last second someone calls over the voip chat "dude we're about to ram our ally! Who's piloting!?" I don't think I've ever jumped over the side of the ship faster than that moment... It still wasn't fast enough though.

Questions aside...

I'm a bonafide nerd, the kind that gets lost reading about physics and mathematics concepts on wikipedia when I should be working on an invoice, loves "hard" sci-fi, and has numberphile on my youtube channel subscription list. Even worse, I find testing software fun (!) and have been doing so for a couple years on my free time. For a profession I consult on, design, construct and service automated industrial lubrication systems. I have previously worked (and originaly studied for) as a journalist - specifically I reviewed PC games and held a monthly column (if you're very young - think the print version of an opinion blog :D ).

Found out about Rimworld through watching Scott Manley, who I (surprise) watch for Kerbal Space Program stuff. Being an avid fan of strategy games in general (Civ, Starcraft, Wargame, Capitalism - though not a fan of the sequel) and definitely management games - though not sports management, since the only sports I watch is e-sport - see the thing about being a nerd. (And there's a thought - someone should make a team management game centered on e-sport rather than football.) Couple of lets-plays later and here I am.

Favourite game of all time is probably Frontier: Elite 2, though I confess that it now is probably some two or three years since I last played it. Some pseudo-remakes like EVE Online has pushed it aside for a while, but that game is where my heart is at. That thing was at least half of my childhood on the Amiga.

Most embarrassing game incident would be back in elementary school - I think I was 13 or 14. We were having a Quake tournament (my social sciences teacher snuck us in after school hours) and in the semifinals I was facing one of my best friends. The other semi had just finished, and our biggest rival had won that one. My friend figured I had the best odds of beating him in the final, so he propsed to lose the match on purpose. I agreed, and the game commenced... only to have me completely lose my game to the point of ending up in the lava so much that I actually lost to a player that was actively trying to lose... Ooooh man... 17 years later and he still reminds me about that. >.<

Breakfast? What's that? Well, if I do have it, it's usually a boiled egg and a bowl of youghurt with Müsli. And 2-3 cups of coffee. I don't do mornings.

Hello,
       Well i normally go by the name of Pandenutyun on Steam/Wow/Origin/PSN/XBL.
I originally heard of Rimworld by a crazy friend on mumble, he told me to go on kickstarter and from there the video hooked me and before finishing the whole video i knew this game was for me. So i backed it!
Something magical about this game hooked me from the combat the gathering resources the game style, the base building it all looks amazing. I still have not gotten my copy of the game but i have spent this whole week just browsing through information of the game and videos and i cant wait!
My Favorite games would have to be Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2. World of Warcraft, Age of Empires and Arma 2 are also of my other liked games.
Best breakfast cereal has to be Lucky Charms hands down. "I'm Feeling lucky!"~Gav
Hopefully i get to write more and be active in the community and testing the alpha builds of the game.
This is actually my first forum i have ever gone onto to talk about a game that I'm anticipating, just wanted to share that to show my excitement towards this game.

Found on a blog Towns - played it a lot for half a year. Then I switched to Gnomoria, a year and a half ago. And even though there were some other games in between, I poored a lot of time into Gomoria. Sadly, right now it is a bit stale, and I need a fresh challenge. Now when I saw this game at kickstarter...

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I love these kinds of games. I found out about this one from the Stonehearth forums, another game I cheerfully backed.

-What's your favorite other game?

You ask this like there could be only one? Hmm, let's name a few. Minecraft, Hearthstone (not to be confused with Stonehearth wich I am sure will join this list), Dungeon of Dredmore, FFXIV, Civ 5, and on and on and on...

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Hmm, I guess it would have to be during Wrath of the Lich King in WoW. I was the guilds main tank and we had just started a fresh days attempt on the King himself. Well, there was a trinket in the game that I adored that basically allowed you to shoot a rainbow from your chest to your target for minor damage but holy geez a giant rainbow. And, well, I still had it on when I pulled. Ah well, nothing like being best rainbow pals with Arthas.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Other fun info about me y'all can frolic about with. I am a native Texan, probably won't leave.

Congratulations on a successful kickstart, Tynan and Ludeon Studios! I'm incredibly impressed with the launch and the most recent build of the game!

- What introduced you to RimWorld?
I saw RimWorld on the Steam Greenlight page and I greenlit it there, then I decided to fund the kickstarter. I hadn't gotten my eyes up for it if it wasn't for the Prison Architect-esque graphics that it currently have. I love Dwarf Fortress and all similar games, so I just had to jump on the boat on this game too.

How does it fare against Dwarf Fortress, Towns, Prison Architect and all other similar games? Pretty well I'd say. Already it's a fantastically solid game and I'm very optimistic to the development of the title.

- Favorite Other game
I would say Dwarf Fortress. Deus Ex is an amazing classic though.

Other than that I'm just a regular everyday Dwarf Fortress enthusiast.

Good luck with the development!

i am Cologan, and as most here i love playing games. I learned about the game more by accident, i was searching for Dwarf fortress after i started playing Spacebase DF-9 . It took me 2 minutes of a youtube video to buy the rimwars. I am astonished how good it is already playable, i am used to alphas that you can barely launch without crashing.

I am student by day, eve online industrial lordling and freighter ganker by night. What i wish the most for the game is a multiplayer, because lets face it, everything is better when playing with or against friends.

Post by: Halley on November 07, 2013, 02:19:02 AM
Hey, I'm Halley (pronounced hay-lee).

I found RimWorld while browsing Kickstarter. It is the first project I backed that actually made it!

The Dwarf Fortress influence is what got me interested. My interest in DF goes way, way back—years before I actually knew how to play it. I used to play a text-based, permadeath MMO (yes, I know that sounds crazy) called Cantr II, and a lot of the people I played with talked about Dwarf Fortress in the forums. I looked it up and became quite obsessed with the idea, but it was a long time before I actually learned how to play. The process of learning to play Dwarf Fortress was a long and interesting journey that involved online dating, moving to the other side of the world, and changing career paths. It was worth it, though.

Anyway, long story short, games that take their influence from Dwarf Fortress are of great interest to me, and I'd like to encourage game developers to work in that direction. I grew up on computer games like SimAnt and Creatures, and I couldn't wait to see what technological advances would bring to the world of simulation games. But then something happened: the PC gaming industry drastically changed its trajectory and abandoned the simulation niche in favor of marvelous 3D graphics and console-like gameplay.

I backed RimWorld as a show of support for this branch of gaming that has so long been neglected. I want developers to know that there is an interest in this kind of thing. If I end up loving RimWorld, too, that's a bonus.

As for my favorite other game, it's hard to settle on just one. I'd say Crusader Kings II probably clocks the most hours from me these days, though.

Hi! I found out about Rimworld via browsing Kickstarter, and very much liked the idea. I feel it's a shame city-building games haven't seen that much focus in recent years, and that space colonisation games seem to be almost non-existant. I played Outpost many years ago and have often wished someone would make a better game along similar lines. And yes, I have played Dwarf Fortress and it is quite amazing.

My favourite game is Starcraft, for its considerable strategic depth and the sheer amount of excitement and tension present in each game. I also loved Baldur's Gate II and Planescape: Torment for storytelling and the depth of the world they created. And... well, I've played lots of games, so the list of ones I like is quite long.

Hi there,
I'm Ludo from France. I discovered Rimwolrd from Das24680 Youtube channel.
My favorites games are probably X3, Distant Worlds, Deus Ex series, Anno series and Crusader Kings II (the only one not in a Sci-Fi genre ^^).
For me the main goal for a game is to create a good story (I really don't like competitive games like fast STR, MOBA and such, maybe because I'm incredibly bad at them ^^) so obviously Rimworld is quite the game I was waiting for !

Oh, and no cereal at breakfast, bread, jam, or bacon, eggs, but cereal ? Never !

Heyo, I'm Jelly. I am an average gamer, playing games pretty much everyday but I'm also interested on how video games work, even since I was younger. It inspired me to learn a coding language as well, so I started to learn in Java, I dabble a bit in there but i'm nowhere near a professional yet!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
  I got introduced by Scott Manley on one of his videos, Signed up for a Kickstarter account and backed right away!

-What's your favorite other game?
  Possibly Kerbal Space Program, or Blockland, heck maybe even Spacebase DF-9. You know what, I can't make up my mind; I love them all!

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
  I probably forgot all of them for a reason.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
  I don't eat breakfast!

Anyways, I hope to be here for a long time, possibly make some new friends, and watch RimWorld grow!

Hey everyone,

Ric here. Long time gamer, massive city builder/simulation fan. Been playing games since the late 80's & will continue to do so until the day I die :P

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

Noticed it on Steam's Greenlight a while ago & lit it up. Also saw a post about it on the Prison architect forums. I back a lot of Indie Alphas as they usually deliver the richest gaming experience in a lot of cases(I detest generic shooters, dumbed down games, etc...)& this one looked like it had a real promise. I've not been dissapointed so far!

-What's your favorite other game?

All time favorite game is Simcity 4 with the rush hour expansion. I've lost more hours to that beast than I care to mention. Anything with a simulation/builder aspect I probably own. :P

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

When I first started playing Team Fortress 2 I equipped the persian persuader(not knowing it's effects) & continued to play with it for 6 months & getting no ammo pickups before I realised my mistake..lol! Good thing I main soldier(for anyone not familiar with the weapon, it changes all ammo pickups into health) It was an embarrassing find to say the least, lol!

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Hard question....Love a lot of cereal. Country crisp is awesome when i'm feeling grown up. Frosties/sugar puffs when I'm not.

Nice to meet everyone!

Hi Im Dave ageing gamer from back in the DOS days (What? You need 600kb Base mem and EMS?)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Saw it somewhere a while back and forgot to follow, then a guy from my work pointed out the kickstarter. I pulled a version from Pirate bay (yeah, I know, but I like to try before I buy), played for 2 hours and went and instantly bought it. Im a big fan of XCOM and Sim style games.

-What's your favourite other game?

The one I have put most time in to is WoW and the F1 series games from Codemasters. I would have to say the old Xcom or Sam and Max games would rank as my Fav's tho. I also have to rank Earth and Beyond up there, my 1st MMO.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Tanking with Red gear, or Mass fearing whelps in BWL trap room (old school WoW players will only know what that causes)

-What introduced you to RimWorld?
Saw a first general thread for RimWorld on a certain site. I checked out an upload on TPB two days ago and ended up playing the entire day. I was super impressed that a pre-alpha was so polished so I looked up some info on the game and found out there was a kickstarter that I missed. Bought it off the main site last night, and now I'm here.

-What's your favorite other game?
Dark Cloud 1 & 2, it's like a storylined dungeon crawler rpg with some city building. Warcraft 3 and Stronghold 2 are some favorites as well.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Not sure about most embarrassing, but I was rigging up traps on a friend in Terraria a few weeks ago and ended up blowing myself up...

Hey Rex here I got the pirate class on kickstarter. I was just looking up and down the game section of kickstarter one day and clicked on RimWorld. The game looked and sounded awesome and I have always wanted a game like this. When I play RTS games I always like to build cool towns and defend them so RimWorld is everything I was looking for.

I have been gaming for most of my 28 years and I like all kinds of games mostly shooters and RPG's. Some of my favorite games are Metal Gear, Resident Evil, Ratchet & Clank and many more.

Hello Ludovsky here, or Ludovic by my real name. French canuck from the cold wastes of Quebec, I like to doodle art in my free time

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I actually came upon the game after someone mentionned it in Gnomoria's forums, notably praising the random events the game's storytellers can spring on you. As that was something that I'd been looking for in the many sandbox managament games that take inspiration from DF, this instantly perked my interest.

-What's your favorite other game?
I enjoy management games, but also those of the 4x genre a lot. I'm a fairly diverse gamer in anyways however.

Hello there!

I am Percy from Percyland... I meant the Holy Land... and as everyone knows the Holy Land is Romania... and I can say that because no one really knows where it is :o.... it's like Atlantis.... but with a more communist feel.

Now that aside, I must admit that the way I got introduced to Rimworld was by a friend, who sent me his copy to play test, since I never pay more that 10 euro for a game without testing it out first. After he gave it to me, I decided to play for an hour and see how it goes. After 10 hours of playing without as much as blinking an eye, Rimworld became a must buy.

It is amazing how much a pre-alpha game can be so addictive to play. So now after giving my support, please continue the great work you are doing! This is truly a pearl of a game.

Percy out.

 A few weeks ago one of my my subscribers told me to check out the Kickstarter and I was sold instantly. So here I am

-What's your favorite other game?
 All time would the original "The Settlers", I wasted days in that game and developed my love for RTS building/managing games. Settles 2 was pretty good as well, Settlers 3 jumped the shark a bit so I lost interest. Master of Orion (1+2) were pretty big with me back in the day along with Master of Magic.

Playing Dead Space, stomping on all the boxes for loot when I found a booby trapped one which scared the hell out of me.

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Well, to RimWorld, I was looking to find some places on kickstarter to see what was good at the time, just recently coming off of 7 days to die, and i came along this early in my search and put it aside to read later as I browsed, and when i looked into this, i wanted to see it though. However, I missed the kickstarter and resorted to buying the game off the website here, and let me tell you i am not disappointed. As for the style, lets just say the dwarfs are not to kind to me effing up their home a few times due to my incompetence.
-What's your favorite other game?
To be honest I can not pin myself to 1 game because I love most games, they are fun and help pass the time, but if I had to pick at least one, id have to pick LOZ A link to the past, one i absolutely love

Post by: Bizz Keryear on November 13, 2013, 07:30:45 AM
Hi, I play games since the early 80th, the 1st ones where arcade games like pacman and spaceinvaders or asteroids which where quite new as far as I remember.
My first real computer was a C-3+4 (little brother of C16). Soon followed a C64 (original design) and some time after a Amiga 500. Shortly after that my next was a 386SX (so basically a 286).
I really like gaming and my collection might have exceeded 10.000 games long ago (I kinda have lost count) and I really suck at it (playing games). Therefore I have achieved the art of cheating (or rebalancing as I call it). Even though I am still unable to complete some games (even if I use ultimate cheats ... e.g. Mechwarrior II ... dunno I think it was the original one ... in the final mission you have to use your jumpjets to jump into a ship ... never made that, even if unlimited jets, god mode and all. Another example: An C64 RPG [was part of a monthly C64 magazine, which was entirely on a 5 1/4 disk {mailman loved to fold those, the recipient  however not} I think it was a local production so you might not have heard of it even if I could remember the name] the final level was 20 and while my friends completed it around being level 10 I still could do it with level 20, however it wasn't my incapability then but sheer bad luck, I even had a friend over who could not believe it, after watching me for failing some hours, he said "there must be something wrong with your game, everything you are doing is correct but you are still not done. let me have a try" and he complete it only seconds after.)

I totally love KSP but after almost about 1000h of playing the game it became kind of boring. I also play minecraft and have got a bunch of games which tried to get the concept to next level but they all suck compared to the original (the are quite good, but not as minecraft is, they all still alpha, though. So there is still space for improvement).

I even play things like sleeping dogs but thanks to circumstance that my reactions are slower than a snail on Valium I have reduced the speed of the game to less than the half.

There are a few games I consider as too short. Like "Papa and Yo" an amazing facinating world but over too soon  (5h and I took my time) . And "Brothers. Tale of two sons" (since I hadn't any difficulties to complete it I think it might be boring for other players) Its funny and the world is beautiful but I still thought I was playing the intro. As the 2nd brother suddenly died. Less than 3h and it was over.

Most embarrassing was: I bought a game on steam and it "expired" (removed out of steam shop, and can't be downloaded anymore) before I even had it installed it once...

I program a very little myself, but nothing which is far more complicated than a "hello world" And php, python, javascript and lua only.

I saw a video about rimworld on ScottManley (who stole my fun of the last KSP update [since he is too good... ])

My first impression on Rimworld is:

Post by: Merry76 on November 13, 2013, 04:09:48 PM
Hi, I am Merry76 - dont let the name fool you, I am not as merry as I was when I took up the name in what must have been around 2000. I do have some rather dark phases (as we all do as we get older) but I stuck with the name, and dont change it according to my moods (Grumpy76 would sound sort of ok at times though). My birthdate is still 1976, which makes me kind of an old fart (Gaming wise. I have played alongside others that are well above 60 - that makes me the small chick, eh?).

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I found Rimworlds Kickstarter on the Gnomoria Forums (I am Merry76 there too). I spent WAY too much time on Gnomoria and its forums, which I discovered in late 2012, when it hit GreenLight (but wasnt yet greenlit) on Steam. Of course I have played my share of games, migrating from Jump and Run games in my youth to less twitch skill based games as my twitch skill started to detoriate. So the progression from reaction to thinking games was rather smooth. I was quite fond of Dungeon Keeper, Evil Genius and Startopia, so that laid the foundation in my "DF like games" habit. I couldnt get into DF myself - the UI kept me away despite its fans telling me constantly that "you get used to it".

-What's your favorite other game?
My favourite other game is Gnomoria (hehe, who would have thought), a game akin to Rimworld (or the other way around, as both play homage to DF) yet different enough so they do not actually cannibalize eachother.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I once had sex on a WoW Raid (Vanilla WoW, Molten Core) playing a healer druid. We still won the fight, and it wasnt as fun as I thought it would be.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Weetabix minis with fruits and nuts. Sounds more healthy than it actually is (way too much sugar in it still), but holds me afloat half a day even if I go to the gym during lunch (and only get a protein shake as actual lunch).

I was introduced to RimWorld thank to spacesector.com (http://www.spacesector.com/blog/2013/10/rimworld-sci-fi-colonization-with-an-ai-storyteller/).

-What introduced you to this style of game in general?
If by this kind of game, you meant Dwarf fortress-like game. It is Dwarf Fortress. What introduced me to Dwarf Fortress ? shame I forgot (real shame)

-What's your favorite other game?
I play wide variety of game so it is hard to pick one.
If I got to pick a favorite genre, it would be 4X game.
If I got to pick a favorite 4X game, It would be Civilization IV due to its accessibility.
There are other more complex 4X (or simulation game) that I really love. Like Dwarf Fortress or Distant world, however these games need a lot of concentrate and commitment. I need to check for new update, learn new mechanic, relearn the old one. Unlike Civ IV where I can pick it whenever I like. In this regard, I think Rimworld which is simplified DF look very promising.

-What's your favorite game publisher?
Currently, My favorite publisher would be Paradox interactive. I love all their grand strategy game. They also publish other great indie game like Mount&Blade, Magika, Majesty 2. They really have an eye for good game.

Basics of me:

Hi, my name is Thomas. I am a human being from planet earth. First I thought I'd wait for RimWorld to release because I have a rather strict rule of not purchasing unfinished games or preordering. Then I decided I'd help kickstart it anyway and just watch the progress till it's mostly done before playing. Then I decided to try the pre-alpha anyway. It's pretty cool and promising, though far from finished. Now I think I want to help if I can. I have absolutely no experience in computer programming or illustration. I have some experience in board game design however and I'm pretty good with game mechanics. I also speak both English and German fluently and I have been to interpreter's school for 4 years with a focus on translation.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've always enjoyed watching other people play Dwarf Fortress (or more correctly: Slaves of Armok: God of Blood Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress :P) and some similar games because of the stories that develop. I discovered RimWorld on Quill18's youtube channel and found it unique enough to keep watching it's progress.

-What's your favorite other game?
It's hard to narrow down, so I'll just name a few: Civilization V, Half-Life 1, XCom Ufo Defense, FTL, Frontier: Elite 2, Torchlight

-What introduced you to this style of game in general?
You see, we live in a country where getting 2mb/s internet is considered to be pretty good. Some times our internet goes utterly belly up due to the fault in the main line that gets dosed with water for months every winter. This caused me to look for games that were offline but still able to give me/us hours of amusement.

-What's your favorite other game?
The Binding of Issac, There Came an Echo (not yet released), Prison Architect and Civ 5 are all games that save the title of favorite right now.

-What's your favorite game publisher?
THQ was my favourite for a fairly long time but these days it's harder to say. Been supporting a lot of Indie titles lately due to years of being burnt over and over by companies like EA or Activision-Blizzard.

Hi everyone :)

I'm Jaguar and I found out about Rimworld in a rather roundabout way: my friend Pegasus Epsilon (https://twitter.com/pegasusepsilon (https://twitter.com/pegasusepsilon) was tweeting Blitzkriegsler (https://twitter.com/Blitzkriegsler (https://twitter.com/Blitzkriegsler)) about a more efficient '5x4' layout for hydroponics. I eventually found out he was referring to Rimworld and watched the video Blitz posted about 'Efficient Hydroponics' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYzEtvFUg2E (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYzEtvFUg2E)). Then I watched the trailers for the games and after seeing all of this footage i was already sold, and when I read about the 'AI Storyteller' system I basically said 'hell yeah!' and coughed up $30!

I've only played the alpha for about 10 minutes so far, but it certainly seems to be a unique blend of genres form what I've seen so far. I have high hopes!

I finally broke down and bought the Alpha and I have to say, I love this game, My first few colonies failed miserably after the 3rd or so wave of raiders, but I have now got this game down to a science and have no trouble surviving indefinitely on randy random and am now trying out Kassandra.

I enjoy many games, but much prefer games where you can create things, such as Blockland, Minecraft or Garry's mod.
I am currently in college taking architectural Drafting and have a strong interest in art.

That is all.

So, about me huh?
I'm probably one of your older generation Gamers here. I've played the original Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom on the Atari. I've also got experience with the original Pitfall when it came out.

My real true love of gaming really came out when I was younger and playing on the Apple ][+ and the original Wizardry or Ultima ][. Absolutely loved that game and had to play ]|[ and IV... gave up on V because I somehow thought it wasn't as developed as IV. Didn't even give 6 a try or 7. 8... wasn't on the radar and when the 3d version came out, Ultima IX Acension, I thought it was going to be the most awesome game on the market. But poor engine design really detracted from the overall game, despite it being one of the first forerunners to the 3d RPG game genre. I also played the original Wolfenstein. Not 3d... Wolfenstein and Beyond Wolfenstein from the early 80s. :)

I'm all over the place on gaming really. I don't do consoles and am purely a PC gamer. I've got a lot of experience with a large variety of games. You can find a spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkUbjIE9zH5TdHRhTUxFVDVvTFdVcGk1VjdKZEplWVE&usp=sharing (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkUbjIE9zH5TdHRhTUxFVDVvTFdVcGk1VjdKZEplWVE&usp=sharing) (Sorry, I haven't updated it in forEVER!) So, you can see my gaming history is pretty in depth.

In a sense, when I play games, I can always figure out how something works in a game (e.g. events that are done through triggers, scripted, AI, etc) just by playing the game for a little while and I always seem to know if something was intentional or purely by accident. Call it a gut feeling... :)

How did I come across Rimworld:
I started playing Kerbal Space Program and saw Scott Manley had a video of him playing Rimworld. I was instantly attracted to the game, due to its "story-building" aspect. I like to play games to see how things could go and like to develop a bond with the characters I'm playing. So, Rimworld seemed right up my alley.

My favorite other game(s):
I absolutely loved the original Ultima IV. In my opinion it is still the epitome of the RPG genre. I'm also a big fan of the Elder Scrolls series and find that Skyrim is probably their best work graphically. However, game mechanics and design are best left to Morrowind. (I loved that running increased your athleticism skill; that whacking a training doll made your weapon skill go up, etc.) I was also a big fan of the Dark Forces series of games, though Jedi Knight Academy seemed to fall short of my expectations.

Most embarrassing moment in gaming:
I don't think I have one?

Favorite Breakfast cereal:
Fruity Pebbles. Hands down. I buy a box, it's gone that day. Jethrobowl of Fruity Pebbles... that is why I only buy a box a year. Hopped up on sugar for months after an episode like that. I always feel like I have to check myself into a Fruity Pebble Anonymous after eating a box (I can't even say "eating a bowl" cause that'd be a lie).

So... I take issue with a comment by you Tynan...

-What's your favorite other game?
Deus Ex. Yep, still hasn't been matched in terms of world development and story.
Hrmph... really? The Elder Scrolls series has no world development or story? How about Ultima I - IX...errr... VIII. IX was just a friggin' ball of mess. :) Personally, I think Deus X was good... but there are plenty of games that outclass Deus X in terms of story, history and overall design as well. Heck... there's Elder Scrolls and Ultima Fan Fiction... don't even know if Deus X fan fiction exists.

*steps off the soap box*

Hi! I'm Olaf. I bought this game a few hours ago and I love it.
Looks like a combination of Gnomoria and Prison Architect.

RimWorld know from Wenzo - Polish live-streamer, but I feel like I already heard that name before.

It is one of my TOP 3 games. Together with Minecraft and Project Zomboid (All are number 1).

From the most breakfast cereals I Like wheat roasted with honey and nuts. :D

Hello, I was introduced to RimWorld by a viewer in my stream. I am always on the lookout for a new game to get addicted to and RimWorld was an instant hit. I played/streamed it for the first time today and had a lot of fun with it. I also inspired a few other people to buy in as well.
An interesting other point is that have started my "Stream Dream Challenge"! I am giving myself six months to make streaming what I do. Entertaining people is something that I always have enjoyed and i think sitting in front of a webcam where everything is live and unscripted is a great way to do it. Look forward to seeing you around the forums!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
MathasGames over at youtube, I've been watching his stuff recently and as soon as I started to watch his playthrough of RimWorld I became enchanted by it

-What's your favorite other game?
Man, that's a hard quest...Well Morrowind is one of them, it introduced and enchanted me with TES lore, Crusader Kings 2 is a huge favorite due to my love of history, Deadly Premonition looks as if it was made just for people like me, and there are so many more.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Don't really have one that I can think of.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I'll pretty much eat anything.

Hi, My name is Russ Chaplin so from a kid I have always been called Charlie. My grandfather was called Charlie and he always insisted that we are related to the famous one as our family come from the same area of England that Charlie Chaplin did. So hence CharlieC as a user name.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I saw the game on greenlight and thought it looked my cup of tea. I have always loved building games and throw in a space theme and combat  has got to result in a winner!

-What's your favorite other game?

At the moment my fgavorites are Gnomoria, Towns and two hardcore wargames from Matrix Games: War in the Pacific admirals edition & Gary Grigsby War in the East. Favs from the past are the Jagged Alliance franchise, Combat Mission franchise, Heroes might & Magic franchise, the early X-com games, Rebelstar Raiders and Chaos on the Speccy! I have been gaming on the computer since 1978 on the videogenie/TRS80.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

That I am still gaming as much after all this time!

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

I don't do cereal - dodgy tum rejects gluten etc so good old eggs & Bacon, sausages, black pudding, mushrooms, baked beans, tomato with a giant mug of tea will do me in a pinch.

I trained as a fine artist specialising in bizarre performance art so will post a few strange pics at some point! I currently run a business selling rare records but also write and act for TV. Credits including writing and performing comedy pieces for Discovery's Top Ten ways series a few years ago which had titles such as Top ten ways the world will end, ways to spot a monster etc. Little Aliens (C4 pilot), History of Sex (C4) and am working at the moment on a documentary about cults.

Hello all,

Name's Jones Maximé Murphy, aka Maximaeus when I'm playing MMO's. I'm a 19-year-old college student attending the Georgia Institute of Technology, majoring in Physics. I am an absolute space junkie, and I can't keep myself away from a good space exploration/colonization game. I was playing and watching LP's of Kerbal Space Program when one of the guys I subscribe to, Scott Manley (pretty big name), started making video's of a pre-alpha game I'd never heard of by the name of Rimworld. Naturally I was quite intrigued, so I decided to go ahead and bag myself a copy. I was blown away. This is absolutely the game I have been looking for. I get a feeling of excitement and novelty from being places I've never been before, and Rimworld just puts you right in the action, like you're actually in space colonizing a planet from scratch on a completely uncharted world. Even though the game's still incomplete it's one of the best games in existence right now in my opinion. I joined this forum because I feel like I have a few good ideas to contribute. Gonna head on over to the suggestions subforum and get to work. :D

Hi, I suppose I should introduce myself (in)formally now that I've been announced!

I'm Rhopunzel, the artist Tynan graciously chose to go with for RimWorld. Some of you might know me from my involvement with Gnomoria and currently Starbound. Nice to meet you!

I'm really happy to be working on this game! I'm having a lot of fun so far, and I'm privileged to be on board with a title such as this. I met Tynan through Starbound and when he showed me the game I immediately knew I had to be a part of it - I'm a huge fan of these types of management games and had been waiting for a sci-fi oriented type to come along, so to actively be a part of realising it too feels really great.

I look forward to working on this and hanging out with the community - I'll be sure to answer any questions anyone may have for me.

Speaking of breakfast, I am old enough to remember Nintendo brand breakfast cereal.

Post by: Meik on December 19, 2013, 03:05:32 AM
Hi, this is Meik from Germany. I first saw RimWorld in a kind of let's play on gameone.de and immediately loved the concept. I started playing games about 20 years ago on the C64 and ever since loved playing strategy, management games, RPGs and adventures (Maniac Mansion and so forth). I always got a soft spot in my heart for indie titles and lately I got the feeling that those somehow manage to interest me even more than many AAA titles. Anyways, I really liked the idea that you can purchase RimWorld and get a very polished pre-alpha version of the game and updates until the final version.

My favorite other game at the moment is definitely Dark Souls and one reason for that is because it does not spoon-feed me with story but gives enough room for my own imagination to do its thing.

Embarrassing gaming-related story? Hmmm, have to think on that one.

Breakfast = coffee (during the week at least)

Hi, Palandus here. Being playing games since I was about 5 years old. First "real" game I played was Wolfenstein 3D when I was 5. I got lost a lot. Want to know more, send me an email: [email protected]; Cheers!

Q: What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
A1: I was cruising a different indie forum (Dwelvers) and they suggested Rimworld to people interested in other games similiar to Dwelvers.
A2: I got introduced to this style of game by games like: Outpost 2, A Game of Dwarves, Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim and Dwelvers (the Indie game forum I was browsing)

Q: What's your favorite other game?
A1: Favorite RTS = Supreme Commander
A2: Favorite Deathmatch FPS = Unreal Tournament 2004
A3: Favorite Tactical FPS = Section 8: Prejudice
A4: Favorite Turn-Based RPG = Either Exile 3 or Dungeons of the Unforgiven
A5: Favorite RT RPG = Dark Souls

Q:Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
A: I was attempting to play as long as I could on one life in Dark Souls, and I ended up dying by falling off a bridge fighting the Taurus demon. This is the most embarrassing, because I blocked the attack, took no damage, but the force from the blow knocked me off. I was quite mad. What a way to die >.>

A:Erm... Whole Grains or Frosted Wheats are things I like a lot.

I'd like to thank EnterElysium on youtube for introducing me to this marvelous game. Even if watching him play sometimes drives me nuts (seriously, there's a body under that bed).

-What's your favorite other game?
Oh man, I can't really answer that.  It depends on the day.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Nothing specific comes to mind. Not because I don't have any, but because there are so many derp moments they all kind of blend together.

I play way too many games, but i got introduced to this one by Steam Greenlight and then Scott Manley on YouTube. I'm also currently rocking Prison Architect, KSP, and starbound so i figured i would toss this one in as well. :) I like to support the small names in gaming. Because eventually you will be the new big ones.
-Fav Game?
I'm a huge fan of Xcom (both new and old) and i passed the 130 plus games on steam awhile ago. sooooooo ya.

-Most embarrassing story tied to gaming?
Got caught playing my brothers PS1 back in the day, by my mother. He had gone out and bought another after his got taken away. He broke it in half after i got caught on it and my mother tried taking it away. Man, we didn't talk much for weeks.

-Cereal?
Bran Flakes with a little sugar on them.

keep the game making up, i'll see about getting some other ppl interested in this game. Good luck ppl, and i'll be watching. :)

Post by: DonWraith on January 07, 2014, 06:21:36 PM
I found RimWorld while browsing Scott Manley's videos looking for Kerbal Space Program videos.  At first I saw the game and just though "that looks interesting".  I didn't think much of it, but a about a month later I saw the game again and did some research.  I enjoy space games as well as the concept of colonizing other planets.  I also like playing games that are still developing.

My only fear is that RimWorld will go the way of Cube World and fizzle out.  Seeing that the developers of RimWorld are more interactive than the developer of Cube World, I don't think this will be an issue.

I look forward to playing the game and browsing the forums for any questions I have about the game.

Post by: Malicar on January 12, 2014, 11:52:05 AM
I think I found out about the game from someone in the Star Citizen chat lobby when we were talking about indie games and the state of the industry. Few titles such as Banished and RimWorld with small dev teams were the talk at the time. Friend told me about the Alpha though and how I could support the game early. After playing the Alpha it was clear this game had the potential to be better than anything else like it. I'm actually really impressed with the Alpha even though it's placeholder and largely unfinished. I wanted the game to have the support it deserves and that's why I chose to support it early. Looking forward to playing new builds and then the STEAM version when it's released. I'm also interested in debugging and making some suggestions along the way. Everyone I've shown or told about the game likes it. Keep up the good work!  Ahh how cute I'm a refuge heh!

Hi, I'm Florian, aka Ravine. I'm a 30 yo programmer, and a gamer for a solid 20 years now (the Game Boy was my first machine).


-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I saw RimWorld on Kickstarter. Found the concept more appealing than Prison Architect (I'm a Sci-Fi/Post Apo fan, so that kind of setting is more my kind of stuff than managing prisoners) and I backed it.

-What's your favorite other game?
Tons of games. Recently, Shadowrun Returns (as a former Shadowrun 3rd ed GM, I love clicking stuff in that universe). Path of Exile and Torchlight II ate a chunk of my spare time last year too. A Civ V game time to time. Oh, and DotA2 (and all the games before that one too). There's something so engaging in being insulted by people over a game ;)

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Too many to actually remember one in particular. Hmmm probably got one. When I was unemployed, years ago, I played WoW quite heavily, going to bed at 5-6am, to wake up at 2pm. To the point that one night, I passed out twice in my bathroom, and nearly destroy a heater while falling. I realized that I was quite lucky to not hurt myself more; I started getting a better life hygiene shortly after that incident.

Hey guys just wanted to introduce myself since I just joined. I haven't got a chance to play yet, but watched several videos on the gameplay, and this looks like loads of fun. I can't wait to give it a whirl, and get to know you guys. I may not have a lot of time to dedicate here, but I will drop in as much as I can. I spend much of my time when I'm not running my business delivering IT Managed Services, playing games & getting involved in projects like these so I'll be around. So...

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
So I found this while looking at a topic in another forum on general games over at the Dwelvers (http://www.dwelvers.com)site. It looked really cool, so I thought I would check it out.
-What's your favorite other game?
Can't say much about placing favorites as I have a collection that spans decades. Final Fantasy has always been in the tops of my lists like Zelda. I play pretty much anything Blizzard although WoW and pretty much most games of that style I have grown tired of. I need an endgame! I think I could prolly go on for almost an hour of all my favs, so I won't do that to you guys; plus I don't think I have the space.

Hello, all!

I'm Chris, and I'm 23. I'm a writer. At the moment I don't have any work published. Though that may be the case, I still love writing because the ideas make it worth while. I've actually been playing RimWorld for a while, though this is my first jump into the forums here.

I actually found RimWorld why cruising through Kickstarter. I've been really watching a lot of indie developers with interest because as much as I do love my consoles, a lot of the titles just don't have the spark that I felt when I first saw this game.

I think by far one of my most favorite games has been Rogue Squadron for the N64 and the Gamecube. I've been a Star Wars junkie for life and I love spacecraft so those games hold a special place in my heart. ;D

I can't think of a moment that is most embarrassing for myself and gaming, though I gotta say I'm not proud of myself every time I lose at a Mario title.

The breakfast cereal that is the best would probably be Corn Flakes because you can do so much with them.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Umm... I think Minecraft was the first build/explore/create game. That turned into Terraria, Mastering Dwarf Fortress, Black and White, Starbound, Don't Starve, A Game of Dwarves, Miasmata, Mortal Online, Wyrm Online, Stronghold, Towns, Gnomoria, Planet Explorers, Warrior Cats: Untold tales, TUG, Dwarfcorp, Frontiers, Stonehearth, Castle Story...
Literally anything and everything I can get my hands on that is an explore, build or resource management game.

I... don't even remember buying this game, but it seems like I did when I was on my "Kickstarter" kick and threw money at anything that would resemble DF. I've been forbidden to play it because I've fried three machines already playing it. :(

-What's your favorite other game?
Depends on what I'm in the mood for. Currently? Starbound. I also still enjoy Skyrim and I'm currently playing AC4 alongside my boyfriend. Have to go back and play 3+Revalations so there will be lots of that for a while.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Besides frying 3 computers with my love for playing DF?
That would be letting my learning disabled sister borrow my Pokemon Ruby. I told her not to save, which she didn't, but then she loaned it to someone else who promptly saved over my five year save file.  I had pokemon all the way back from Blue, several live tounaments and special edition pokemon that you could only get at events... Didn't talk to her for a while after that and I was mostly mad at myself for 1. giving up something so precious and 2. having to eat that loss like an adult and pretend it didn't hurt as much as it did. Because it was a game for kids.

Just got the alpha and have been playing for the last day or two. I'm very impressed so far - looks like you've only got a very thin layer of objects and options in the game so far, but its already surprisingly playable and fun. Also weirdly stable and bug free for an initial alpha release...

- I found Rimworld through my initial interest in Dwarf Fortress, which I played for quite a while before I finally just became too aggravated by the interface and instability. So I've been looking around for various derivations of the game (gnomoria, towns, etc), and this is by far the most promising so far. Most of those other ones have fine interfaces, but are otherwise very shallow compared to DF. Rimworld is the first I've seen that looks like it might provide some of both.

- My favorite other game of all time would probably be the original Master of Orion, though various entries in the Ultima series also figure highly. These days I tend to bounce between high complexity sims and rogue-likes like Tome4, and co-op FPS games like Payday for my fast action fix. But I play a very wide variety of stuff.

- I'm a professional game developer, and have been for a long time. However, I've spent most of my career working for bigger companies, so I can't claim direct credit for any specifically cool project like this. I tend to specialize in game math and balance, though I've spent a lot of time making content for games as well. I've loved watching the indie game development community grow. It allows for much more creative projects than the mainstream industry, which is desperately needed.

- Favorite fictional book: Snow Crash
- Favorite anime: Slayers
- Favorite non-fiction: Guns, Germs & Steel
- Favorite documentary: Cosmos
- Favorite movie: Dunno. Can't choose. Probably something by either Miyazaki or Pixar. Or maybe Blade Runner, or a Henson movie... uhm...
- Currently reading: Various Scalzi novels.
- Currently watching: Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199

I've never gotten into game modding before, but I have a suspicion I'll be trying my hand at it for Rimworld. ;)

Hello! Just got the game having watched it for about 2 months (The new Alpha convinced me) and have been playing it. I've been looking around these forums for a while as Guest, but now I'm an actual RimWorld player I decided to get a forum account. I have found the game to be quite difficult and have already died many, many times. :)

-I first saw RimWorld on the YouTube channel Gamersdissent and thought 'Wow, this looks awesome!' I read up on it, followed its progress for a bit and, just now, bought it.

-Favourite other game? Probably Kerbal Space Program or a Legend of Zelda game.

-In DayZ, my trousers were stolen by a band of really creepy bandits. They wiggled for a bit, took all their pants of, teabagged me and left me for dead after stealing all my gear. I caught one later and fed him detergent.

-Crunchy Nut. Is there even competition?

As a side note: Vastin, Attack on Titan is far better :D

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
On my recommended youtube feed was Quill18's lets try rimworld video. Watched it and immediately remembered Notrium. I've always favored top-down games in general as that was what I grew up on. The Red Alert franchise and its following sequels, Disciples/Diablo to a certain extent. The most influential of all was Notrium, Tynan, I hope you've heard of that game as it is on the same level as what you and your team want to achieve.
-What's your favorite other game?
My favourite game at this stage would have to be League of Legends. Throw in a side order of Minecraft and if this game kicks off, Rimworld will be in it too.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I pretended to be a female player to get gifts. No joke. I actually got put into a GM position because of my little trick.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Rice pops with chocolate flavouring.

My name is Red Storm 58. I was introduced to RimWorld by a freind. I like these type of games because of the strategy in them. My favorite other game has to be space engineers, great game you should look it up, its only 15 dollars. Was playing slender the arrival when my cat purred. I jumped out of the chair and grabbed my baseball bat and nearly beat my cat to death. Cheerios. I am from london and moved to florida.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I was watching YouTube videos and saw this in the suggested videos, watched the video, and instantly loved the game. Not sure where I was really introduced to this style of game, I've always liked strategy/tactical/survival/simulation games.

-What's your favorite other game?
That is a tough one, I can't really come up with a game I like the most, so I'll just go with a game I have the most hours on. Garry's Mod.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Couldn't really come up with one, but a recent one was accidentally having a colonist shoot and kill another one on accident.

I prefer Captain Crunch, although I like a lot.

Post by: Drake Hawkins on February 07, 2014, 11:32:53 AM
Hello Tynan and all you other 'Rim Worlders"  My Name is Drake.  I figured here would be a good first place to make contact with the community.  Now lets see what i can give by way of introduction.  I'll answer your 4 questions and maybe add a few.

"What introduced me to Rim World?"
 - Well once quiet evening as I sat at my computer thinking, "Man, there just are not enough good classic concept games these days" I started searching as I had done many times before for something to scratch that itch for some oldies that I hadn't tried.  (when you are searching for an idea it seems its all in getting just the right word for Google to interpret into the actual idea that is floating about your brain at that moment) I don't recall the search string but suffice it to say I stumbled upon a YouTube video ... as they always seem to one video leads to another (often devouring stupid amounts of time).  It was a let's play of Rim World.  (Sorry i don't recall who's video it was at the moment)  5 Minutes into the video and I had to stop it and go find this bizarre looking game. Was it actually even released yet?  All i have to say about the next 6 hours is "Tynan,  It was time well wasted!"

As to the Genre of games...
- I have been playing games now for ... well 25 years.. video games. If anyone else remembers "BC's Quest for tires" or "Q*bert" ... anyway I have been playing PC games for a long time.  The Management/Civ/Sim City Style have been a favorite the whole time. Anyone else grow up playing games on a Tandy 1000 EX ... epic titles like "Trains"?

Favorite other Game?
 - I have enjoyed a few MMO style games.  Old Favorite was DAoC. (Before Mythic was sold and the game butchered)
 - Until Recently It was my favorite of that genre, but recently a friend introduced me to Guild Wars 2.  Its a new favorite... For this season at least  ;)

Breakfast cereal?
 - "Just Right" of course... its not just in the name its in the taste too! simple healthy and tasty!  If you have not tried it Tynan, you should check it out.  I'm sure it sells in the east too.

Embarrassing gaming moment?
 - i don't know it it counts as embarrassing, funny, disturbing or just odd but here it is.  I used to love to play DAoC.  It was the best MMO of the pre-WoW era imho. My son, He is now 12 yrs old, was about 3 at the time and his sister was 1.  i had my computer in the basement with a large open play area for the kids.  At times I would play with him on my knee cause he liked sitting with daddy and watching.  I figured that was a nice time and what harm could come of it, right?  Well it seems he really got the idea clearer than I had imagined.  See I played as a character type called a Thane.  They are from the Norse legend based factions.  The Thane Wields a large hammer and evokes lighting strikes from the sky on there enemies.  One day, while the 2 of them were playing with there toys, I go upstairs to the bathroom and when I come back down and this is what I see.   My son noticed my Daughter had turned a bucket for holding small toys into a hat. (He may have helped her get it on)  He, it seems, was inspired and decided to do his first (hopefully last) LARP session.  Off he goes to get his toy tool set.  Yeah you guessed it, he was a Thane! and it seems his little sister was the enemy.  She was crying and he was skillfully banging on her obviously impenetrable helmet! I shouted at him to stop but as kids are he saw right through my attempt to be stern and cover my laughter. I stopped him of course and consoled my now bawling baby girl. (I hope she doesn't need deep therapy from this!)  I laughed so hard and showed my wife.  We have a picture too! Just not hammers included.  Turns out I needed to learn to curb my young boys exposure to violent imagery. :P


I am really looking forward to joining this community and seeing the growth of this game.  I have begun to list ideas that perhaps in time can be passed on to the ideas and concepts team.  I am mostly interested in the tech tree and game play side of things as I have never been a coding sorta gamer.  Having said that it seems I have a new book to add to my must read soon list, Designing Games, Eh?  Do you think I can get a discounted rate if I tell the clerk at Chapters that I play a game that the author made?

Howdy all, long time Lurker, first time poster.

Found Rimworld thanks to Mathasgames indy-preview back in kickstarter and haven't looked back since. I'm beginning to see myself more of an indygamer as i seem to be buying 5 indi games for every AAA release :D.

Other games i'm supporting include Prison Architect, Neo Scavenger, Kerbal Space Program, Banished and Project Zomboid and i must say so far i've only ever been let down by 1 indy game which was one of the few to kickoff Steams Greenlight which was Towns.

Hopefully we'll see the game grow from strenght to strength.

Second attempt at writing this, Windows 8 force restarted my computer to update nothing important at all.  :(

I'm Scott from Montreal (self-employed  8)), and this game rocks!

I used to just use a laptop, so I would usually search for games that I would be able to run well and enjoy at the same time. I previously had the RimWorld Kickstarter page bookmarked, but I just couldn't wait any longer to give it a try! --- This game is everything I've ever wanted. *tear*

I also bought myself a fancy new computer, and it's become a $1000 RimWorld console.

My favorite games:
- Prison Architect
- Project Zomboid
- Fallout series
- Minecraft
- ... and any tycoon-ish game really.

When I'm not trying to grow a mullet, I sometimes enjoy making really bad JavaScript games.

Hey I am a gamer from Germany.

- Found Rimworld on KS after Terminus failed to match its goal and loved the premise, also was pretty impressed of the prototype, which other companies would already have declared alpha.

- My favorite other game at this time is Planetside 2, but I am expecting Stonehearth to take over when it receives more content.

- Most embarassing... 2 things, for one for a long time I could not finish defenders of the crown on the C64= because I did not know that "flip disk" meant to put the floppy in with the other side and the other thing was I let it run for 4 weeks straight because I did not know how to save the game In Elite.

- Best cereal... any organic muesli mixed with bulgara yogurt will do.

I am massively enjoying Rimworld and are eagerly awaiting the next Alpha :-)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I think I saw a screenshot on Reddit, and thought what's that, because I never heard of Dwarf Fortress, and Prison Architect looked cool on Steam, but not enough to buy it, I didn't like the Prison theme.

-What's your favorite other game?
How can you ever say favorite, I guess what comes to mind is growing up and playing FF6, Chrono Trigger, that's the last time I would have told you I had a favorite. I just finished The Witcher 2 though...

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I got really into DDR in college, went to a competition once, and was bested by a 16y old Japanese girl, in a mall.

Hello Rimworldianers

Because I want to be polite, i'm introducing myself. :)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Since I played Terraria I search much more for Indie games. They may not have a perfect graphic, but the game itself is much more fun for many hours. I played Batman for about 10-15 hours, Terraria for more than 100 hours. Then I found prison architect and than this great game. And I think I spent more hours in pre-alpha and alpha 1 than in nearly every casual game, and the hour-counter goes up

-What's your favorite other game?
No specific favorite game, but I love Terraria, Towns, Prison Architect and (ok one is casual) Skyrim

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
haha, funny question. I'm boring, what about standard CornFlakes? :)

I'm very exited about the next relases, i can't nearly wait

Ah, and btw: I'm from Austria (the little country in the Center of Europe)

cya, Sebastian

EDIT: I forgot to say: I'm very impressed that a game in this early state is so stable and has so few bugs. Congratulations, please tell other developers how it's done  ::)

Hello! I am Magzilla from Georiga, USA!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I saw someone playing RimWorld on Twitch, actually, and so I looked it up, and here I am! I've always been into strategy games, and since I can build things in RimWorld, it was an instant attraction.

-What's your favorite other game?
I can't really choose one, so here's my top 3:
1. Suikoden series (With 2 being my absolute favorite)
2. Deus Ex: Conspiracy Theory. It was one of the first games I played by myself, really. Usually, I would play against my brothers in something or just watch them play. So this game has a special place in my heart.
3. Harvest Moon. I LOVE most Harvest Moon games (Some are just awful) because not only do I get to run my own farm and ranch, but I get to court the villagers and make friends and get married! It's such a simple game, but I love the series dearly. Animal Parade might be my favorite of them all.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
When I was playing Final Fantasy VIII for the first time, I was searching for the white SeeD ship, and it took me soooo long that I started crying out of frustration and threw my controller down. I then proceeded to stomp around the house yelling at the top of my lungs, haha.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
My preferences change from month to month, I think, cause we have a steady rotation of cereals. My favorite is Alphabits, but I do also enjoy a good bowl of Frosted Flakes.

This is a picture of me and my best friend meeting Scott Hall and his son Cody. YESS!!! (I'm the one in the middle; my hair was really short back then)

Hi, I'm [randomly generated nickname], from Europe  :)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
An online gaming community told me about the game, it looked really fun so I got aboard the Kickstarter just on time. I'm a massive fan of Dungeon Keeper 1, but haven't really explored the whole strategy/management genre yet (even if I got all the classics on gog.com already).

-What's your favorite other games?

Too many to list, but I would go with: mods, immersive FPS games, tactical shooters and mods (too).

But if there's one RTS game I would pick, it would be Battle Realms (by far), it's really a hidden gem. It has excellent: balance (you can totally recover from a lost battle unlike most other RTS !), gameplay (diversity and clever use of abilities are massively favored over quantity), environment design (all the tiny details like the wildlife, or each faction distinct style affecting buildings, units, abilities and VA), level design (extremely gorgeous), sound design (battles do sound like battles ! and the Lotus clan... oh boy), music (got them on my MP3 player, it's incredible), voice acting (even the localized VA !!). It's on gog.com - I truly recommend it, even/especially to people who usually don't play RTS.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Realizing I've been shooting at teammates the whole time for the last few minutes or so... and was such a poor shot I didn't killed one, not even scratched them enough to get noticed. In these moments, you just want to hide in a cave and hope they forget about your existence :D

Then a few weeks later, you start getting good... And team-kill someone by pure accident "OMG so sorry ! :s", so you're really stressed and want to make sure you'll compensate that with several useful kills. Oops. Second TK, no more than 5 seconds later. I... I'll just sit in spectator or simply disconnect, I seem to really need it.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Tough question... for a sophisticated breakfast that would be muesli, for a cozy-lazy breakfast on the couch/computer/console, any commercial cereals (Kellog's and the likes).

Hello ladies,

Registered today as I have noticed/encountered a few things a I'd like to draw attention to and have a few suggestions to make too, so I figured I'd get involved. Expect logic/common sense based posts with a slathering of dry wit and dusted off with the corpses of trolls.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Prison Architect. I discovered that through Steam and watched the Alpha videos available. Fell in love with the concept and execution and purchased it, playing fairly solidly for a few weeks afterwards. I can't remember exactly how I stumbled upon RimWorld but I loved the concept and could immediately relate to the style, so I jumped in at some point during the early Alpha access and played it quit a bit before getting distracted. The Alpha 2 additions have drawn me back and I'm looking forward to more updates.

-What's your favorite other game?
DayZ Standalone is currently my other biggest time thief and I've put 120+ hrs into that since I bought it in mid January. Unfortunately, my PC is a pile of old bollocks made sometime during the Industrial Revolution and it runs like shit and regularly crashes so I tend to play it in spurts. I suspect I'll start again with a new patch in Experimental. :D

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Oh crikey, umm, probably that time when I bought Guitar Hero 3 for the XBox and stuck it straight on to Medium thinking "how hard can it be?", followed by much  :o,  ??? and  :-\ before I put it on Easy and continued to struggle. Stupid fingers.

Hi all.

I've come from a different angle to this game so I will not answer the questions at first. I bought the game with modding in mind with a specific total conversion planned.

It's still a rough sketch but the idea is clear.

This game came to notice through the Unity3d site (I've been a hobbyist game developer for a while and use the engine).This thread is what actually got me to finally post: http://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=2506.msg24373#msg24373 (http://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=2506.msg24373#msg24373)  <-- I've written C# but as a scripting language for unity. So, nothing like the stuff in that thread (Exactly, all that stuff to do with threading).

Excited about the possibilities.

Let me know if you're interested in the total conversion mod idea.

Basics of me:

Hey there my names Elmo, but you can just call me Mason. I am a 3-D animation student at Lifeway College (in New Zealand)
I love to sculpt clay, make digital art and animate.

I don't really get into many games these days but occasionally i find a really good one and kinda play it to death XD 

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Basically saw others in my Computer lab playing it and thought "that looks interesting" so i looked into it and got it! :D

-What's your favorite other game?
Hmm, I would have to say indie games are were i gravitate to at the moment, one of which being Don't starve and anything else with game mechanics that make you think instead of games that say "ohhh shoot that thing" -_-

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I can not play thriller/ horror games at all, one sound or shadow and i freak the hell out XD

Hi !

So... I play RimWorld since last november, as Quill18 uploaded Let's play videos. At this time, I was mainly playing Civilization V and Minecraft. Beyond that, I play occasionally games of a wide range styles, but almost no FPS, and no games that require reflexes (sport, drive...). So yeah I like the kind of games like RimWorld, where you can pause, think, and react then.

My longest answer would be for the "breakfast" issue. As I work in music, I've got a weird week schedule. So wednesday morning, big day waiting... I get there early, to take a croissant and a chocolate bun in a bakery, then I eat them in a café with an espresso, and my favorite satiric weekly (out wednesday) magazine (which I don't eat). Seriously, this is the best.

Oh, yeah, I'm french :)

Hey there, I'm Jaysyn & I'm a drafter & GIS analyst by trade.  I helped Kickstart RimWorld. (Wasn't there supposed to be a forum badge or something?)

I've been playing PC games since my parents bought our first Packard Bell PC back in 1994 & before that would play them every chance I got at my cousins or friends houses.  We played a lot of the SSI Gold Box Games.  I've also been modding games off & on since that time as well, starting with Doom, later Unlimited Adventures, Baldur's Gate, Galactic Civilizations, Neverwinter Nights, the list goes on.

My favorite game of all time is Planescape: Torment with Civ IV, Baldur's Gate, Master of Magic & the Fallout series following behind.  As for newerish games, I'm currently playing thru Baldur's Gate: Reloaded (http://www.nexusmods.com/neverwinter2/mods/794/?) as well as Starbound with my kids.

I can't really think of my most embarrassing gaming moment, but it probably involved the NWN server (Athas Reborn) I used to host.

Not a big fan of breakfast cereals since they are so unhealthy, but when I was younger I really liked Peanut Butter Captain Crunch.  These days when I do have cold cereal it's usually Raisin Nut Bran.

Hi there, I'm Tarrke and I just bought a copy of this incredible game.

I've been playing videogame since my childhood and I really enjoy that kind of sandbox games where I can spend hours and days just watching my peoples doing stuff. I found this one in a french video gamimg publication.

My favorite game, arsh... Of all times, it may be Chrono Trigger but really, only one ?

My most embarrasing videogaming moment ? Well one day I just catch a call from work asking for news. I told them it was saturday so I stay home and they remind me that it really was tuesday in fact...

I'm not a cereal eater, the best breakfast is ham and cheese between two slices of bread freshly cooked.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Might not be most embarassing but a recent one was in a game of Europa Universalis 4 as Bohemia I was able to usurp Austria as the Holy Roman Emperor. This is a big deal and a major accomplishment as usually Austria has a lock on that and it opens up the whole world to conquest. I paused my game but didn't close it. My mother-in-law was visiting and went on the computer to check her email while I was in the other room. She kept saying "Your game popped up" and I just kept telling her "Just Alt-Tab out of it". What I didn't realize as she struggled poking around my game is that she had unpaused it and advanced the speed to the highest setting so my grand strategy empire went through ~100 years without any inputs or commands from its leader :(

Needless to say I didn't check my empire before saving & closing at the end of the day. Imagine my surprise when I loaded it up the next time to play and thought "what the hell happened to my Empire!?" before realization slowly dawned on me as to what had happened :(

Hello everyone!  I recently picked up Rimworld and have been streaming it on twitch now for a little while.  I have been thoroughly enjoying this game very much.  It's even pulled me away from Dota2 and Starbound!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

A guy by the name of Weem on the weemcast introduced me to Rimworld.  Check out his Rimworld videos on Youtube

-What's your favorite other game?

Dota2 and Starbound.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

I was playing Rimworld actually, and I just got the alert that raiders had landed.  Then, all of a sudden, I accidentally bumped my desk and one of the coals on my hookah fell.  In a panic, I had to hurry up and grab it with my tongs and run to the kitchen for a wet cloth just in case (I picked it up before it burned anything significant, just a small black spot on my desk now).  When I had finally cleaned everything up, I looked at my screen, noticed that in my panic I didn't hit the space bar (to pause), and everyone was dead.  Now I use a wind cover to help with this issue, hopefully it won't happen again.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

Actually I was playing Dwarf Fortress and thought to myself, "Why has nobody made a better version of this yet?" Well I decided that I needed to do a little research before I decided that it was the best in class. I found plenty of cheap knock-offs that offered very little originality and a couple that with a little work could become exactly what I was looking for. RimWorld was one of those that just needed some polishing and was actually getting the work it needed. I decided to give it a go! And I've gotta say, I'm glad that I did.

-What's your favorite other game?

Minecraft. Plain and Simple. I've always loved survival/crafting and building. Minecraft is that perfect combination. It's actually Minecraft alternatives that I was looking for when I found Dwarf Fortress.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Most embarrassing gaming story... Tough one. Probably that I'm trying to play games on an extremely out-dated laptop. Nothing ever works. (-_-) RimWorld does though :D

Umm, Honey Clusters of Oat! The best of the best.

Random (embarrassing) Fact of the day: I drove 20 miles to work today (Monday) thinking that it was Tuesday. I was off work. I forced myself to get up and dressed, and drove to work for no reason. (9-9) the bags under my eyes are heavy.

What me got here?
Well that's an relatively easy question: One of my Youtubers I watch has introduced this game and I really loved it! :D

My favorite game... or better my favorite kind of genre/idea:
I really love games wich let me organise and plan. I love to start small and expand and get more and more possibilities in my games.
The Anno Series... Hrmmm is it called different in English? ...
Dungen Keeper 1 and 2
Galactic Civilization 1,2,3
Spore
Minecraft
Here are some Inidie games I play:
Prison Architect
Cataclysm:DDA
Dwarf Fortress
Aurora
Factorio
Non-PC games
Most of the Harvest Moon games

I'm still searching for an complex game in terms of code but relatively easy to play... DF in easier to understand/control if you want. I have some big ideas for possible a game (and they are complex as hell) and many ideas for most of the games I play. :P

Post by: reifnotreef on April 14, 2014, 02:26:46 AM
Just started playing a few days ago. I spent months trying to find something similar to Dwarf Fortress that worked on Linux to play on HP Chromebook 14(which I LOVE!).

Stumbled upon this by happens chance in a forum talking about 'Timber and Stone' and 'Stonehearth' actually.

SO glad I did. This is EXACTLY what I have been looking for!
Now if I can only manage to survive more than like 30 days I'll be golden! I usually end up dying to a raid followed by a mad Muffalo, or a grenadier blowing up EVERYTHING in 2-3 grenades!

Post by: Somz on April 15, 2014, 04:46:19 AM
Well it is only approrpiate to introduce myself I think, before the size of the community makes it impossible to follow, and because I'll stick with this game for...years I guess. :)

So, my name is Cyst. Not my real name of course, that'd be Soma but you probably won't ever encounter it, so just...Cyst.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
The person introduced to this game was Mr. Scott Manely, not personally of course...Sadly...Anyway, Playing KSP made me want to look up a few things and I found this guy, found him rather funny. So after checking his videos on youtube, I've come across this game. Well, awesome.

-What's your favorite other game?
No idea. I love Science fiction (or just fiction) and RPGs, I loved Mass Effect 1 (2, 3, not really), I love SWToR (1), Dragon Age:O, as well as (more or less) "mindless" shooters like Borderlands. (sorry, I'm no fan of shooters based on the present days) I also love builder games like Caesar III I started playing with in '99 as a kid, I was but 6 at the time, as well as Space Engineers and KSP, though both lagged for me so I stopped playing with them.
Picking a few would be really hard, but...Let's say it was...Homeworld2...Maybe. Loved that game.
Sadly, due to financial problems, I can not afford to buy a new PC so I'm stuck with the older ones, I don't really know about new games.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I don't...know. Maybe when I started playing WoW as my first online game around 2003-4. So I created a character logged in, just killed mobs. (Quests? Nope, I didn't speak english back then, I didn't even know how to quest!). Then there was a guy who was just lying on the ground asking for help. So I started talking to him, though he seemed odd, I continuously tried to explain that I can not help as he continuously begged for it. Then a lv lot expert stopped by and started laughing at me hard, invited his friends too, in 10 minutes there were about 10 of them laughing at me. Yep, I was talking to an NPC.

Dunno, I don't really eat cereal, chocolate milk and a smoke are what I start a day with. Yes, I also smoke, shame on me.

Hi all. Dajmin here. Been playing RW for a while but only recently signed up to the forum and thought I should say hello.

About Me:
I'm a semi-professional musician in the UK, currently touring in support of my band's second album.  I don't want to start pimping so soon, so I'll stay anonymous for now :)  Still learning RW and got my first fairly-successful colony working.  Preparing for doom any minute.  Just installed some mods but haven't had much time to try them out.  Haven't played Randy yet but really want to!

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I found RimWorld through YouTube, but I don't remember who did the upload.  I think I was looking at Prison Architect stuff and it was a related video.  Checked it out, liked the style and grabbed a copy!

Right now it's Prison Architect, but I'm loving FTL as well.  Too many across too many genres to name them all.

To Rimworld: A Spanish forum about wargames and more recently, "dwarfgames". One fellow forumite posted about Rimworld's Kickstarter campaign and I followed the path.

To this kind of games: The same forum, the same forumite posting about Dwarf Fortress.

Crusader Kings 2, I guess.

Well, while playing CK2 sometimes I end cheating my wife with my daughter-in-law while I murder the infant brothers of the later in order to put her at the throne of her country of origin and thus gaining a valuable ally.

Hi!

I am Technotica and I am new, I just bought the game and registered on the forums.

My journey to Rimworld was quite a strange one, it started with reading about The Last Federation (totally unrelated), past Unclaimed World and ended here.

When I read about a game influenced by Firefly (Love!) and Dwarf Fortress (also Love! but only with graphical add ons) I just couldn't resist!

I was a bit surprised about the SendOwl thing though, no registration no account for the game just emails that you get after updates?

In any case I can't wait to play! *stupid worktime*

Hello! My name is Spoolicus, but you can call me Nathan or Nate or Spoolicus. I've been forum stalking for the past couple of days and decided to make my first post here! I'm also going to say that I might have some very interesting things coming down the pipeline that may or may not be story/Storyteller related. (It's either one or both, I'll have you know.) But before all that jazz can begin, lets learn more about why exactly I'm here!
-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I was first introduced to Rimworld in another forum for another Kickstarted game called Stonehearth, a real time voxel-based strategy-simulation with RPG elements. One of the Moderators there posted a link while the Kickstarter for RImworld started, but I didn't have enough money at the time and the Kickstarter ended. A few days ago, I remembered the game and since I had enough money, I bought it! Woo!
-What's your favorite other game?
This is a tough one. I've played and grown up with games most of my life. Ten years ago it would be something like Pokemon for the Game Boy Advance. Fire years ago, it would've been Portal. Two years ago, Braid. Last month, somewhere between Prison Architect and Planetary Annihilation. There are really too many to name just one. It'd be better to just post an entire thread about it, but I feel that it would a) take too long for me to do and b) not be very productive.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I hate scary games. Actually, I hate anything involving scares, gaming or not. And I'm 18. It takes me constant effort to not freak out at something like Amnesia, Lone Survivor (despite this, still an amazing game and you should go play it), and Silent Hill. And, despite my fear of scary games, I play them all the time. I've made it through most of them, even. However, there is one or two games that I haven't yet, because I just can't stand them. One of them is Eversion (http://store.steampowered.com/app/33680/). No, I didn't link it wrong. For some reason that happy little game with the flower protagonist is like my worst nightmare. Because, if you play it, there comes a certain point at which the game just gets creepy. You probably just need to play it to understand where. You'll know it when you see it. It is, however, probably exaggerated since I have a thing for scary games. I haven't touched it in years.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
The one and only, Captain Crunch. Reminds me of a certain pirate song by a certain comedy band duo that's probably not a family friendly song. No, wait. It's definitely not family friendly.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I don't really remember how I found this game... something to do with steam. Maybe I was looking for games similar to prison architect?
-What's your favorite other game?
I guess my favorite game of all time would be League of Legends. Not necessarily because of the game itself but the memories. All the fun moments I've had with my friends makes it my favorite. If it wasn't for league, I never would have met them, and I never would have found out about other games that they showed to me. Like Osu! Which is my second favorite game ever.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
One time on King Arthur's gold I set off a keg trying to blow up a huge group of knights in front of our base...while I was still in our base. I couldn't get out of the base in time and ended up blowing up a good chunk of our own walls, which made me seem like a griefer. I didn't get banned though they understood. XD

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Been playing Dwarf Fortress for years, and I loved the idea of a game as deep as it was, but with graphics and a more intuitive UI. Loads have come out recently purporting to live up to that one day, but RimWorld is the first to convince me.
-What's your favorite other game?
My favourites are Dwarf Fortress, Crusader Kings 2, New Vegas, Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Planescape Torment... I can't pick between them!
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I once dropped 50 children down a pit in DF because they were slowing my framerate too much. Unfortunately, they didn't die, they just broke all their legs. I dropped some goblins down after them to clean up, but the goblins just broke all their legs too. I had to sit there and wait for the giant pile of goblins and dwarven children to starve to death, which took ages because they were STILL slowing down my framerate.

Hello All!
I’m very pleased to be given this opportunity to introduce myself to you and read your introductions. I also want to give a quick shoutout to Tynan; whom has personally cost me to lose hundreds of dollars on other games I recently purchased and refuse to play (or haven’t even played yet)!
Except for my old & trusty MLB2K12…well, because it’s baseball season…going psycho in New Bloodsville is all I think about! 
-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I’m a steam client and I saw RimWorld in Greenlight. I didn’t understand it but I liked the video and screenshots so much that I voted YES on it. Keep in mind; I’ve never really played a game of this genre beforehand. So references to FTL , Dwarf Fortress, and Firefly didn’t resonate with me.  I’m more of a Sandbox, RPG and Grand Strategy kind of gamer.
What bought me to this style of game in general were Rock, Paper, Shotgun articles and YouTube playthroughs of Qvadriga and FTL. And let’s be honest, FTL is a monster of a game for only $10. Between that game and Qvadriga ($20 and well worth every damn penny) I was content. So it was difficult to even consider playing another game, let alone buy one. But now that I purchased RimWorld and played it for the first time this past weekend, you understand the reference in my introduction paragraph.

-What's your favorite other game?
My favorite game is Stronghold Crusader. The sequel is scheduled to come out this year, so looking forward to that. A close second went to Titans Quest for a long time, but that margin is fading fast. Between Crusader Kings II, Qvadriga, FTL & RimWorld…I’m going out of my freakin’ mind.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Kellogg’s Corn Pops!
Happy gaming!

I actually don't remember how I heard of Rimworld. A Let's Play, maybe? Watched a whole lot of them over the last week or so. Lot of people making very basic mistakes, but also some had good tips.

I really like the whole "random colony"-thing, but the most difficult part for me is usually the colonists; I'm a perfectionists, and even though the traits don't do anything, I don't want three nymphomaniacal sexagenarians. Also, because I always try to get a "protagonist," and I get too attached to that one person. x.x

Post by: SSS on May 02, 2014, 02:43:17 AM
TripleS here. I found Rimworld on Kickstarter's popular page a few days after backing my first project. I didn't back it then, but I've bought it since then.

The only management game I've extensively played is Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, and that's quite old now. I've played a few strategy games, my favorites being those in the Homeworld series. I always like a good story to go with a game, though, so it's natural that this sort of game would attract my interest.

Despite the above interest, I hate RPGs. Hate. I'm not a fan of rougelikes or sports games either. The first games that come to mind for my favorites include the Metroid Prime series, the Homeworld series (duh), the Lost Planet series, the Armored Core series, and the Megaman X/Zero/ZX series. (As you may see, I like sci-fi.) Alan Wake was awesome too... and then there's the Portal series. There's so many! I can't really claim a favorite amongst those.

I can't think of any embarrassing video game stories. I've puzzled on stuff that should have been obvious before, but no specific case is coming to mind.

My favorite breakfast cereal seems to change every few months. Right now my favorite is Cocoa Krispies. Previous favorites include: Boo Berry cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honeycomb, Cookie Crisp, Frosted Cheerios, Fruity Pebbles, and S'morz.

Time to introduce myself even though I've been here for a few months!

What introduced me to Rimworld?
I honestly have no idea, One day I was looking for Indie games then the next I was on the forums taking part and blowing up nobles with Blasting charges.

Favourite game of all time would have to be Perfect Dark for the N64, I've probably logged over 8 months on that game over the years.

Well I suppose there's always those moments where you completely miss the blatantly obvious flashing red warning that you're about to die...

Hi guys, I'm a Science-Fantasy writer from Tauranga, New Zealand. I just bought RimWorld and am loving every second of it. I like how the developer decided to add lots of backstory to the game through the characters. This is what attracted me to RingWorld, as it is what I look for in a game nowdays and it's my livelihood. I think the game has tremendous potential and I am looking forward to seeing how it grows. I really have to take my hat off to the creator, he has made something very special here. It's half built and already better than a lot of games out there.

Aside from this i like RPGS and micro-managers. Favorite cereal is Crunchy-Nut-cornflakes (New Zealand). LOL. I look forward to joining the community.

Hey!

First of all, I would like to confess that I haven't bought the game and downloaded it from torrent. I'm really having trouble with financial issues these days, sorry about pirating your game. I will buy the game once I pay my goddamn debts and support the game in whatever way possible. I hope I won't get banned for being a dirty pirate :/

My favourite game is also Deus Ex, first one of course not the horrible sequel. I also loved Dark Earth when i was a little kid, awesome atmosphere and story telling.

You might not believe it but I've been looking for a game about space colonies for a long time. Perfect limitless setting, mysterious, unknown. Whips an explorer's soul. When I first saw your game I was like "this can't be real, I'm sure it's shit". However after downloading and playing it like 20+ hours I was more than satisfied.

You good sir, are not like the soulless money grabbing game makers dominating the industry today. You are trying to create what "you" love, not what brings you the most money. I admire you. Huge respect.

Hey everyone! I've just bought the game off Tynan's site, downloaded it and was wondering if I should go ahead and download say the Industry mod since it seems to add so much extra content to the vanilla game.

Anyways, glad to be aboard and hope this game takes off in a big way.

Welcome to that game SilasG! I'm the creator of the industrial rim mod. I'm happy to hear you are considering downloading my mod, and would just like to throw a few warnings to you!

1. Industrial RIM v1.1.2 is extremely unbalanced and unfinished.
2. In IR v1.1.2 some textures are only placeholders and have been replaced for v1.2.0
3. I personally recommend everyone who wants my mod to wait until v1.2.0 coming out in a few days due to the fact v1.1.2 is not at all meant to be good, nor is it meant to be balanced. It is just basically a development build I made public.

Thanks,
Calum.

Hey guys, I thought introducing myself here would be a way to get active in this community. I bought RimWorld during the Kickstarter phase but only played it occasionally (I just started to play it again now - haven't played since Alpha 1, game is turning out great btw). I'm really interested in (scifi) building sims and (turn-based) strategy games. My favorite games are Civilization Series, Deus Ex, and GTA San Andreas. I'm also a manager of a gaming community which specializes and hosts San Andreas Multiplayer servers, more recently hosting Garry's Mod and CS:GO servers. I also have a fair share of time in coding world, knowing C# and other accompanying languages (maybe I will try making some RimWorld mods one day?).

Hope to meet more of you guys soon.

Hey SourceVG, welcome to the community! I'm pretty new myself but, just something to think about, Ludeon Studios are looking for people to help code Rimworld itself. So, if you were interested in coding and sci-fi building sims ...lol.

Theres a sticky thread in General Discussion I think.

Hello guys, my name is Dimas and I'm from Brazil.
Got the game last month and realized I was too nub to play it without mods. The constant raids always destroyed everything I had sooner or later. I was tired of never getting to the 100th day, so i started installing mods. Some mods help a lot, other are just fun. I like the way this game allows ppl to mod and tweak a lot of things.
I've been following the changelog and can't wait for the alpha 4. Many of the 'issues' i found in the alpha 3 are already adressed in the change logs.
Great game.

Well I've been addicted to Prison Architect for a while and was looking for alternatives and found this, although I remember seeing the name of KickStarter but sadly never looked further :/ I'm a great fan of RTS (Supreme Commander or AoE), and base building types of games (RCT, Prison Architect) and so in an impulse I bought the game, an impulse that often is, sadly, wrong (and have had a bad time with early access - where the games can be great but I can burn myself out too early - need to go at a steady pace :P) but I fell in love with RimWorld, almost immediately, and still love it having played it constantly, despite being terrible!

I am looking forward to following the progress of RW, with what looks like an awesome community, a great developer and superb mods and I would love to begin to start modding for RW, and I already have a few small ideas that I would like to introduce and am going to be waiting for alpha 4 before I start (hoping of lockable doors). Once I've got used to the system myself I am hoping to maybe commence a larger project, bringing in my modding team of Viridi Militis - perhaps for art, code and sound but want to gain experience myself for now and also get to know the community better - so that I don't annoy everyone immediately when I am constantly asking a barrage of questions - as I always want to know more (which can be good but also annoying).

For other games I enjoy: some of my favourites are Mount & Blade: Warband, Europa Universalis, Dragon Age, Prison Architect, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance, Company of Heroes (1), Frozen Synapse - and now as well RimWorld.

Looking forward to games such as StoneHearth, GTA V (PC) and in the past loved King Arthur's Gold (it's alpha version which had great building and teamwork in a PvP sidescroller, was heavily involved in that - also enjoying Door Kickers.

So I'm really (really) glad this game came along, even though I don't reckon this game as DF's reboot from SciFi era (or do I ?).
still, love this game since alpha 254b, I could just keep playing my old stuff and I love the incredible pace of updates you have oO

I love all forms of PC gaming and have always wanted a game like this. I bought it only a few days ago and already sunken hours into it.

Oh yeah, the introduce yourself thread!

I've been lurking since my buddy hooked me on RimWorld Alpha 2 (he was a Kickstarter).  This was just a couple days before Alpha 3.  I'm a citizen of 2 countries in North America, a hobby coder, and a lover of sim/strategy/sandbox games.  You can see why I automatically loved RW.  (Note to self: Check out Dwarf Fortress sometime!)

Hey guys,

I just joined the Rimworld community after buying the game.
Sandbox/city builder games have become a real addiction with games like Towns, Gnomoria, Terraria, Edge of Space, Starbound, etc. (although all very different) and Rimworld is way on top there. Loving it already!

I'm a German university student studying political science btw.

Hi I'm Justin, AKA ShivaFang.  I've also been tinkering with game making as a hobby, but I launched a company doing so a few years ago.  Haven't published anything noteworthy (yet).

My room-mate told me about this game - I was looking for something in this genre after he started a Let's Play series of Banished.  He said Banished doesn't have a whole lot of depth and wasn't worth the money.  Dwarf Fortress is too complicated for me, I can't get around the UI.  He recommended this and Prison Tycoon (I think it was Prison Tycoon, but I'm not sure I just know it was a Prison game) based on Let's Plays he has watched, and after watching a bit of splattercatgaming's lets play I decided to pick it up.

My favourite other game varies, as I tire of games and find new game and then go back to old ones.  I'm currently playing a lot of Factorio.

Hello everyone. Loving this game so far. I will really enjoy watching it develop.

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I'm always on the hunt of good sandbox strategy games. Saw it on RDBK, I think.

What's your favorite other game?
Tough one there. Maybe Crusader Kings II. Love farting around in Minecraft though. A toss-up.

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I cannot play horror themed 1st person games. Just can't stomach it.

What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Any cereal with nuts, oats, grains and maybe a few flakes of something.

Post by: SonnySynth on July 04, 2014, 04:31:04 AM
Hello, my name is Sonny and I am from the U.K, SonnySynth is my nick as I am a big fan of chiptune & synth music and I have been playing/writing electro/chiptune for nearly 35 years and coined a phrase some years ago "relaxtune" which is a mixture of chillout and electro, something not too far away from the music in RimWorld. I have also been gaming since 1982 with my first gaming experience on the old ZX81 with which I lost an entire weekend inputting code from a magazine to make a primitive "blitz" style game.

Up until last year I worked for one of the UK's top custom PC & component outlets as their UK Sales & Customer Service Manager but had to leave due to serious illness. After two long years of prodding and poking I was found to have cancer and I am pleased to say that after 6 long months of intensive Chemotherapy and surgery to remove a large tumor from my groin, I finally have the all clear. Unfortunately the surgery has left me wheelchair bound for the most part, hopefully this will improve with time.
**The reason I have included this in my intro is to raise awareness of cancer, I am sure that Total Biscuit (recently diagnosed with bowel cancer) will agree with me that you never think it will happen to you until it does thus reinforcing his advice that "Everybody needs to get checked"**

Ok enough of my bio (thanks for sticking with it), on to the questions;

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I stumbled upon RimWorld whilst processing a batch of Greenlight games a few days ago, it immediately struck me as my kind of game and after watching a few YouTube videos decided to buy it and have been engaged ever since, in fact I am already thinking of modding. I have always had an interest in management/RTS/TBS games with construction & tycoon games highest in my preference.

-What's your favorite other game?
I cannot single one out to be honest, Chaos, Populous, Theme Hospital, Alpha Centauri, XCom (all of them) Minecraft, The Sims(all of them), Terraria, Prison Architect & Roller Coaster 1,2 &3 Tycoon just to name a few.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I met Peter Molyneux (the legendary game designer) at a convention and confused him with Julian Gollop (another legend), after ranting on about how awesome Chaos was and still is he replied "I think you have me confused with someone else" /facepalm

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, crushed and mixed with Swiss Muesli and ice cold milk

I found out about RimWorld through Yogscast Sips playing it.
I have always loved simulation/building games so this game is one of my favs already.
Another few games I love to play is Minecraft, Game Dev Tycoon and Banished.
I've been into making websites and videos for a while, so I may start up a RimWorld Fansite :)

Post by: Chaz Serir on July 05, 2014, 11:20:00 PM
Hi there! I'm Chaz, I'm an unemployed chap from northeast Scotland who draws silly comics and plays games to keep himself sane. One of these games happens to now be Rimworld, as I'd heard the name mentioned by a friend, and decided to look it up!

I just picked up the game today so I'm still figuring things out, but I decided to drop the extra $10/�6 to get my name in the game, just because this game looks really cool, and I love a lot of the ideas behind its design (Particularly the focus on not having too many colonists - in part because it's more fun to be attached to your colonists, and in part because managing hundreds of peoples' needs is a bit of a micromanagement nightmare for me, so smaller numbers are easier to work with!)

I'm looking forward to seeing where this game goes, for sure!

EDIT: Oh! There's questions to answer, too! I love answering questions, here goes:

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Dwarf Fortress was my very first, found out about it from someone on an IRC way back and ended up falling in love with the concept (Particularly the ever-amazing tale of Boatmurdered). I found out about RimWorld in particular from a passing mention from a friend, decided to google it, ended up deciding it was my type of game!
-What's your favorite other game?
Far too many to list all of them, but ones I've been playing recently include Minecraft modpacks (Tekkit/Tech World 2/Resonant Rise being my favourite Technic/FTB/ATLauncher packs respectively), Euro Truck Simulator 2, Space Engineers, Factorio, and the Elite: Dangerous Premium Beta! As you can probably tell, there's a running theme in there - LOGISTICS! \o/ I love games where transporting goods from one place to another is a large part of the gameplay, and that can apply to all of those titles.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I have many! One time I was playing Rainbow Six 3 on the PC when a friend was over. I opened a door and an AI terrorist shot me dead between the eyes. Scared the daylights out of me - my friend claims I jumped back six feet, I'd been so startled by it! There's also the time I lost all sense of direction in the tutorial of Metro 2033 while at a friend's house. Basically, Me + Games + Friends nearby = general embarassment on my part.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Again, many choices come to mind. Crunchy Nut, Curiously Cinnamon (Previously Cinnamon Grahams, known in the US as Cinnamon Toast Crunch), heck, I even like Bran Flakes. Don't judge me.

Hi there. My name is Terry. Saw this game in one of many let's play series I watch on youtube and just had to try it out.  Played it at a friends and got totally hooked. Was gonna wait until Steam release but it was starting to look like I should either move in with my friend or buy my own copy of the game, so I decided to buy the game :) .
Great game, great community and great modders all = happy Terry.

A bit about myself. I studied computing in the early 90s including ancient programming languages such as COBOL and have done no coding since. Recently was running my own PC repair, upgrade business but had to close due to illness.

So not working at the moment but playing lots of games such as Skyrim (PS3), Xcom up to Apocalypse  and the Xenonauts remake, console version is also suprisingly good particularly Enemy Within.

Love games like Rimworld and surprised to see the excellent cover system and strategic battles of the colonists, being a fan of Firefly probably helped. Nice mixture of Sci-fi and wild west frontier settlement. Good to see a game that's not afraid to kill off every colonist as part of the many stories made by these types of games.

Looking forward to the updates and Mods.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
(backstory, i'm british) I'm gaming online and my accent goes spare (i think i was yelling insults in londoner) and an American dude started laughing. We decided to swap accents and he was a posh british limey, i was a hillbilly yokel.
Two games later (new teammates too) someone shouted "Hey you, english, give me a hand!"
Of course, being the only brit there, i ran over.
"no not you, the english guy!"
me and the other guy (now talking normally) had to explain it all to this guy who honestly thought i was some heavily inbred redneck who was trying to marry his cousin... Honestly, i was more worried about offending than actually convincing people!

Knew about Rimworld from FTL somehow.
Got a lil interested when I heard it was Dwarf Fortress in SPACE, but only started playing after my Bro bought the game.

I like Fallout alot :3.

In game I've lost a colony due to a Squirrel attack, I've killed raids of over 100-150 raiders, 25-50 centapedes at this point. Total kill count in like the thousands. I was not pleased. All my colonists were spread looting the map and bam Divide and conquer at its finest and lots of friendly minigun fire (all colonists only had Miniguns)

Hi. I'm Will, aka Ink., aka Asshole. Whichever anyone prefers really. I'm a very active gamer and very much into role-playing, RPG's and strategy games, which RimWorld has tickled a little bit. I'm from New York in the United States and am a college student, CIS major.

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've played RPGish Strategy games before, I grew up on Command and Conquer and what not but I've also liked games like Civilization 5 and even Minecraft. I enjoy both the combat aspects of these sort of games aswell as the management aspects.

I found out about RimWorld through a streamer known as Sacriel. I go to watch his stream as usual and he's playing it. Suddenly in CS:GO I'm dying a lot and losing match after match because my eyes are glued to the stream. Needless to say despite my intentions to be an adult and save my money I bought RimWorld anyway. No regrets.

What's your favorite other game?
This is a hard one to directly choose. It's a toss up between Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (because I play the multiplayer mod daily) or Gears of War (the entire series). I've spent sad amounts of time on both of those.

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I could recite my first colony and the tragedy on how I lost everyone. Haha.

I dunno, I don't really have any embarrassing stories really (in gaming at least).

What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Wheaties, with or without a little bit of sugar on top.

most embarrassing so far, would be having all my guys (in this game) next to a motor and a raider shot and blew it up so all my guys instantly died... kinda funny in a way tho
Title: Re: Introduce Yourself!
Post by: Bog on July 19, 2014, 07:35:23 PM
Well I'm not new, but I haven't posted here yet...  :P so ...

-What introduced you to RimWorld? - I heard about it via waiting for the now released new version of Dwarf Fortress*.

Or to this style of game in general? - I've been gaming since I was literally a toddler... I'm the youngest of 4, and all my older siblings have been gaming since before I was born. I grew up on games like Civilization (the original when it first came out, and of course later the rest of them), Railroad Tycoon, Covert Action, Jetpack, GOT, Age of Empires, and literally hundreds more.

-What's your favorite other game? - Changes day by day. It largely depends on my mood. I play all sorts. I'd guess strategy games (both real time and turn based) take the largest piece of the pie so to speak, but aren't even a majority.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story? - Not too many, honestly. I suppose that the most embarrassing things are usually the times where you accidentally do something very noobish even though you're a very experienced gamer. An incident that comes to mind from a while ago was when I was playing Planetside 2:

I had spawned as a medic, switched to my "medical applicator" by pressing "3", aimed at the nearest hurt allies' head and pulled the trigger to heal him... only to find out that I had in fact spawned as a heavy assault, so pressing "3" got out my rocket launcher. :o Whoops.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best? I've unfortunately not gotten it much over the course of my life, but Steak and Eggs is by far the best "cereal" in the world.  ;D



*Well technically it's called Slaves to Armok: God of Blood Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress: Histories of X and Y**, but just saying "Dwarf Fortress" usually gets the point across.  ;)

**Where X and Y are words randomly generated every time you start up the game.

What introduced you to RimWorld?
-A friend of mine on Steam sent me the link to the Greenlight page, I was intrigued, and I ended up watching a few series on YouTube before deciding to buy it.
Or to this style of game in general?
-I've been playing Strategy/City-Building games since I was about 7, starting with the Civilization and Age of Empires series, then moving on into other games like Anno when they came out.  Needless to say, I've always been a fan of these kinds of games, and I really like how RimWorld (at least in this stage of development), has no set goals, other than pure survival and building the spaceship.
What's you favorite other game?
-Hands down, Civilization IV (w/ Beyond the Sword).  I have great memories of sitting down in the winter and playing some marathon games, and I fondly remember playing the Fall from Heaven mod/modmods with friends. 
Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
-Hmm, tough one.  It was pretty embarrassing when I fell asleep during my turn on a Fall from Heaven game, kept everyone waiting for almost 20 minutes  :D.  And then also general noob stuff that happens in games I consider myself experienced in.
What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Leftovers!  ;D  More seriously, Cheerios.

Hello! Any other South Americans out there?
I'm from a small country called Suriname (On the northern border of Brazil) And an aspiring game developer! Just started learning C# and getting a hang of the ins and outs of Unity, and I hope to learn a lot from Mr Tynan and his amazing game!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've played a lot of Dwarf Fortress and I love the survival/management style of gameplay. Bought into quite a few games with the same style including Towns, Gnomoria, and Stonehearth, but so Rimworld is by far my favorite because of it's unique style.

-What's your favorite other game?
I play a lot of KSP as well as Firefall and some LoL. I have a broad taste in games.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I played EVE Online for 5 years. I have a lot of war stories, many of them very embarrassing.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Corn Pops, Cocoa Crispies, and Apple Jacks, all mixed together.

Post by: HatesYourFace on August 12, 2014, 11:12:06 AM
I meant to make an introduction post sooner, but I was to busy playing the game lol...

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've been enjoying some similar style games of late like Prison Architect, Space Base-DF9, etc...was Google searching for other indie base management sims and I stumbled onto the RimWorld site.

-What's your favorite other game?
Payday 2 at the moment, I'm a big fan of co-op games as well as shooters that focus on more than just shooting. (Left4Dead would be another good example) Hawken is a close second, despite the fact that I haven't played it in awhile due to a lack of updates/content.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I once got so mad at an N64 cartridge as a child for not working right that I tore it out of the console and stabbed it with a nearby steak knife several times. The really funny part is, it worked after. Lol.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Apple Cinnamon Cheerios. Nutritious and Delicious!

And/or put up ridiculous pictures, as you see fit.

I shall see fit to do so!

Post by: ZestyLemons on August 16, 2014, 06:25:43 AM
I've made a lot of posts here so far, but never made an introduction post. Better late than never:

'Bout me
I'm a Uni student in CST (computer systems technology). We've learned a bunch of Java, some C, enough mySQL to actually manage a database, a little PHP (I self taught myself a lot during projects though). At the moment, I'm trying to learn more C# through some small projects and through Rimworld modding funnily enough.

Other than programming, I like doing photography when I find the time, and occasionally making some silly/non-serious videos. I've also picked up drawing recently, though I'm not that great at it (it's still fun, though). I am pretty proud of my avatar which I drew, along with the art of the weapons in my mod (it's received compliments like "it's not bad", yey).

- What introduced you to Rimworld?
It was some YouTuber! I don't remember his name sadly, but there was a post on Facepunch with a video about the game. He posted a few videos back when there was still a bug where you would never get raided, ha. I Kickstarted the game after seeing the combat when it was fixed, because I absolutely love it. Alpha 6 only made it cooler.

- What's your favourite other game?
Hard to pick, but it's between Evil Genius (PC) and Megaman Legends 2 (PS1).

- Most embarrassing game-related story?
Being lured onto an island in the middle of a lake in an obscure, permadeath game called Haven & Hearth with the promise of starting an awesome fort on said island. They murdered us super hard, I felt really gullible.

- What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
No idea, I haven't had cereal in years (not a fan of milk). I can tell you Kellogg's Corn Pops are not the best, eugh.

Have a picture of my dog that I took, since I'm not very handsome.

Thought I'd start this right with an introductory post, so here ya go:

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I was watching Yeti's (https://www.youtube.com/user/ClosetYeti) videos of Xenonauts and noticed he'd started up another game playthrough. Natural curiosity took over and I was hooked on the concept of Rimworld since I saw it, and Alpha 6 gave me the push over the edge to buy it. I do love me some hardcore games with real dangers. I've had a keen interest in this type of game for years but never really had the motivation to take any of them up until now.

-What's your favorite other game?

Anything that files under strategy or hardcore shooter these days, with my particular poison being Insurgency at the moment.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

I'll go with a recent one since I've already mentioned Insurgency. Anybody that knows the game, knows it can be a little on the tense side, considering a stray bullet can have it's name on you at any given moment. Naturally, nerves are taut and reactions are itching. I carefully slice the pie on a corner and am immediately welcomed by a burst of rifle fire that has me diving back around the corner and reaching for a flashbang... Which in my panic, I botch. Instead of bouncing it around the corner it lands right back at my feet and the feet of my 3 buddies. The rest is history.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Co-co pops, but I'm partial to Shreddies. Go go UK cereals!

No funny pictures for you, but I'm sure I'll share should that situation change. Hai guys!
Title: Re: Introduce Yourself!
Post by: Geos on August 16, 2014, 02:51:47 PM
Howdy!

My moniker is Geos. I fell madly in love with Rim World during the Kickstarter campaign. The development is coming along really nicely and I figured it was finally time for me to contribute to the community!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I've loved strategy-simulation-survival games for as long as I've been playing games. They're my bread and butter; the kind of game that'll keep me up to the wee hours of the morning. I discovered the Rim World kickstarter quite by accident; I had just signed onto kickstarter to peruse the projects, and see if something caught my eye. Rim World was *that* exactly. It was meant to be!

-What's your favorite other game?

For the last 12 months or so I've been putting the real solid game time into Kerbal Space Program and Mount and Blade. That alone probably accounts for 1000+ hours. I am pretty partial to Don't Starve and Spin Tires as well right now.

In the recent couple of years, the Total War franchise has also consumed a heap of time, along with a dozen or so smaller indie games like Project Zomboid, NEO Scavenger and Tele-Glitch.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

An unplugged mouse lost my clan a critical game in a 1.6 CAL tournament. I never lived that down.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

The kind with bacon and eggs and no cereal.

I've spied this game and I really love the atmosphere of it and the gameplay mechanics, and I am interested on seeing if I could buy it, maybe even potentially get one of those custom character packs and just maybe, see if I can get on board for voice acting if its ever required.

Hi guys,

I am Stefan from Poland.

I can’t remember how I found out about RimWorld but I think I was browsing it on Kickstarter. I didn’t back it up back then as I am a little apprehensive of all the projects never getting finished. But I tracked the progress of the game every now and again and the Alpha 6 finally won me over. I love it so far.

My favorite other game would have to be the Civilization series.

Hey we'll I have officially decide to give the game creator a thumbs up. Now about myself whole long story, but I will tell you about my experience with this game in particular.

Well I am a big YouTube junky (lol) I saw some vids from pre-alpha and to be truthful wasn't to interested. So from the very first to know I missed out on the BEST GAME EVER. It was brought back to me by my extremely close life long friend who showed me a YouTube video on alpha 5 (he is also a YouTube junky). I was absolutely amazed (and contemplating my idiocrasy) the game was like falling in love, doesn't last long till you buy it. Well now I will be here FOREVER!!! Don't be surprised creator (I don't know his name) if I become a regular. P.s. I have my own YouTube channel my first vid was on rimworld www.youtube.com/user/theIncidiousLudus

Post by: LordJulian on August 31, 2014, 05:09:24 AM
Well, I'll just try a different form of introduction then.

My name is LordJulian, call me Julian. I first discovered this game while searching for survival games, apart from the badly made/zombified/crapshoot copy of DAYZ of cash-ins that I have seen, this game somehow succeeds in sucking my high expectations. It's not Bad, not Great, but good. A well thought out good game that I have hoped that it does succeed, I've paid a whooping 30 bucks for early access.

I'm a fan of thinker games. Current games I have played would be Expeditions: Conquistador, Door Kickers, and Xenonauts. Yes, no main tream games here, indie somehow satiated my itch, and AAA titles have lost my faith in them.

You can regard me as a future prominent member in the forum. For I have certain vested interests in the game itself to be moddable to my whims. I have a proposition to make a total overhaul of the game, and of course release minor graphical mods before that.

  I have certain modding experience in the Xenonauts community (Which I would encourage people here who likes strategy to play this game) and am a 2D and 3D artist. I'll be hanging out in the modding forums if anyone needs me. :)

Hello lads,
I'm a half Ukrainian half Romanian from Bukovina, northern Romania but I spent my later life traveling around Europe, living a few months up to a year in Germany, Netherlands, UK and now living in northern Italy (yeah I have a thing about northern things XD)

I'm a graphic artist, airbrush painter and webdesigner and I make a living by painting. And since I'm a descendant of a cossack family, I also love to ride horses.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Honestly I can't remember. I saw colony building, Prison architect graphic style, Dwarf Fortress gameplay... what's not to like? I think it was on moddb.

-What's your favorite other game?
Well, there's a bunch, mostly RTS, RTT, Simulations, some RPG's.
RTS-Paradox games (Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron, Crusader Kings, etc)
RTT-Men of war series, the old Commandos games
Simulations-Armed Assault series
Odd ones: Dwarf fortress because oh well, losing is FUN.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I played a game of Quake-Live against my 60 years old dad thinking I'd smash his ass. I got ass whooped instead, on an instagib server, him using only the gauntlet. Complete humiliation.

Ahoy folks,
 I'm Woolly! I'm from Eastern Canada and have been a long time PC gamer. I have a background in Cultural Anthropology, Qualitative Anthropology  and Social Statistics. Although in reality I use none of those skills now and am currently involved in more capitalist business ventures. Anthropology is still a subject I am very passionate about however it does not suit my financial goals. I also have a deep interest in Archeology, Paleontology, Fossil hunting, Aquarium keeping.. and lots of other off the wall stuff. :D

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
     I never knew anything about Rimworld until recently, a thread over on the Stonehearth discourse mentioned the game and I checked it out. As for the genre, I have always been a bit of a simulation fan. I think it was because I was never allowed to have an ant farm as a child...  Growing up I was heavily into RTS and Simulation games  defend, survive, attack etc.. I always like the idea of games of this nature. Eventually I found Dwarf Fortress which lead to a deep desire to play all the games of this type... the issue was none of them scratched that itch like Dwarf Fortress but I never stopped trying. Thankfully RimWorld definitely makes me feel like DF did. 

-What's your favorite other game?
    That's far too difficult for me to decide. I have many favorites of different genres and my tastes are always changing. At the moment the games I am pumping the most time into are RimWorld, and Civ 5. I normally also play RPG/ARPG games but I've recently burnt myself out on Oblivion, Skyrim, Grim Dawn...

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
    I once lost a level 92 Hardcore Ladder Diablo 2 character which was in a high position for that season because I Alt-tabbed without going to town when my lady friend and I were having an argument. I recall coming back to the computer already heated only to be crushed.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

I'm a software developer professionally, who moonlights as a musician/composer (I released a self-produced album on Bandcamp this summer, which I won't link to here because doing so could be perceived as being financially motivated).  When I was (much) younger it was the other way around ... music was my FT job back then, and programming was something I played at in my spare time.

After starting out in the Unix world, for about two decades I used, owned and developed for DOS/Windows PCs only.  Then I was introduced to the world of Macs through (believe it or not) a requirements that I develop software for them at work.  At first I resisted, but after a few months the Mac finally "clicked" for me, and I bought my first of many Macs.  I still program for Windows systems at my FT job, but at home I now own and use nothing but Macs and other Apple devices.  It's a happy obsession.

What introduced me to Rimworld was a Scott Manley video on YouTube.  I've never played Dwarf Fortress or any other similar game (or even heard of them before, really).  Which was probably for the best, because I can easily see how I might get obsessive about this style of game.  So now I'm probably in trouble.   ;)

Other than Rimworld, my favorite games have either been 4X games like Civ or (especially) MoO, or else games with a huge sandbox like TES: Skyrim.   I also spent way too much time playing Privateer about 20 years ago or so, and am "dreading" next year's expected release of Elite: Dangerous for the Mac, which looks like the same thing on steroids and which may well have the same effect on me!  So in general I like big, open-ended games where your activities are self-directed and self-paced, which is probably why Rimworld has me by the short hairs already.

Favorite cereal: Puffins Honey Rice. There's actually a long story behind that, but one which I'll not be relating right now.   :'(

Well, after watching him play for a couple of days and getting frustrated/drawn in deeper I realized that I had to buy it for myself. My first session was over 5 hours last night- I'm already hooked.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

My name is Dave. I have lurked about this community for a while now, and finally decided to join in.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
     As a child, I dreamed of growing up and becoming a knight. During my formative years, this resulted in me being "Sir David" of my mom's backyard and woods, where I would rescue my neighbor Kristen as my damsel in distress (although it took me several more years before i figured out what to do with said damsel after I rescued her). Although I, alas, did not grow into knighthood in the forests of Michigan, it did strike my imagination for knights, and then star ships, because, what is cooler then a knight with a laser gun? Books brought my dream to me, which then led me to story-driven video games. RTS games whereupon I could develop my own story, simulation games where I could put myself into the game; RPGs where you are sucked into the game; games of that nature. A friend introduced me to prison architect, which I enjoy on the odd occasion. The forums of Prison Architect led me to here. I believe I shall stay awhile, and maybe even listen.

-What's your favorite other game?
    As mentioned above, I enjoy a broad range of games. Age of Empires, Empire Earth, Rise of Nations, all sorts of RTS games are what I grew up on, whilst games like Skyrim, Prison Architect, and stuff like that are also enjoyable.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
   I was in the Army. In garrison (not deployed, in country), and I had just started playing my PS3 with my brother (on microphone) when my slightly tipsy girl friend came in and suggested a few things loud enough to be heard over the open mic. Little did I know, my mother was at my Brother's house where he had the audio coming out of his TV instead of headset. On top of that, my Sargent found the idea hilarious and told my entire platoon about it.  Although not truly caused by gaming, the "Battlefield Incident" as it has become known as, was fairly high on this list.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
    Honey Bunches of Oats. My dad works (and has for a longggg time) at the factory where they produce it, so I literally grew up with it. I oftentimes eat it for dinner or another supposedly odd meal when I'm lazy and my wife lets me get away with it.

Yo.  I'm Celia Fenderson.  I'm a blogger and a modder.  I don't know anything relating to actual coding, but XML gets the job done.  If I ever need to, I'll learn to later.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I was digging around on the Linux Game Database and I saw someone mention this in relation to a game that looked interesting, so I looked up a few youtube videos on it and thought it was nice.  Also because it's Linux compatible.  As for the style, I like sandbox type games and always have.  Not having any kind of story to follow has always led me to fill in the blanks.

-What's your favorite other game?
I don't play much of anything else at the moment, but if I do, it's RuneScape.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Don't think I have one, actually.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've played Prison Architect, and the art style obviously stuck out when I saw Rimworld for the first time. I realized that the art style was very similar, but the gameplay was a bit different in terms of goals. I enjoy sandbox games because I don't like being forced down a linear path. Not everyone thinks the same, and we should be able to make our own choices that affect our experience.

-What's your favorite other game?
I really love Half-Life 2 and other source games. (My avatar is a Hunter I drew.) I'm not huge on FPS games but will accept them as long as it's interesting or unique. Call of Duty FPS types are not my style. I enjoy RTS and Simulation/Strategy games as well as RPG's. I guess I'm really open to a lot of games actually...

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I'm not sure really.. or I just can't remember a good one at the moment. Maybe playing Wurm Online. That game is not worth the time consumed in my opinion.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Chocolate Pebbles or something? Maybe the Golden Grahams though.. yum.

"Hey idiot, why are you starving? You're standing in the kitchen making 50 meals! You're surrounded by food! Stop and eat one you fool! Oh, you've died of starvation. Huh."

Love it :D

Found the game while perusing the very angry Spacebase DF9 forums. Lots of people saying this was the game they should have got. I had held off buying SBDF9 due to slow progress and very unhappy forums. The forums here are overflowing with praise - and now I know why!

I have no idea what I'm doing and will likely take me many colonies to get up to speed, but I just love each and every session. Great game, looking forward to seeing it grow, just like my colonies!

My name is Maarten, and I live in the Netherlands. I've been gaming for a lot of years now, but my favorite game has to be Baldurs Gate 2 : Shadows of Amn. I completed that like 10 times.

I stumbled upon this on YouTube yesterday, and immediatly made a PayPal account. Just waiting for it to clear (which can take up to 2 days, ugh.)

Looking forward to playing this!

While I'm at it, I might as well ask a question; Is there some kind of political system in this game? I remember in Dwarf Fortress there were several 'noble' positions. I was curious if this has something similar.

Hey I'm Noobshock.

Mostly old school RTS player (War2/C&C era), big time SC:BW player (particularly for the assymetrical factions and unit design), I also like production line type games such as the Settlers series, turn based strategy such as Heroes of Might and Magic (III and V being my favorites), I'm currently following Infinity Wars (best CCG model I've come across so far), RimWorld (Dwarf Fortress IN SPACE), Factorio and Prison Architect.

I also have a history with fighting games (mostly arcade/SNK) and FPS (I'm one of those people who liked Descent) but the first ones are few and far in between on PC which I'm partial to at this point, and the second haven't done much in the way of evolving for the past so and so years (thanks COD).

I'm pretty passionate about game design as a very holistic craft that requires both a good sense of what works artistically and from a systems/mechanics standpoint. Rimworld being close to the top of my list as far as interesting games in development right now.

Well there you go, hi.

Hey all,

I picked up RimWorld a couple weeks ago, and I have to say it's quite enjoyable. I just launched my first spaceship earlier this week, and it is indeed quite a challenge.

I will say that it is quite addicting, and I almost would rather not launch ships. (Which I just started my first colony that is to be long term and not launch ships today.)

Thanks,
EBrown

Hello, people of Rimworld! Im ZephyrSly, but call me Zeph, its easier to type... and it sounds cool ;)
Nah, jokes aside - Im Scottish, and I'm sure I have a couple marbles missing inside my Data Processer... I mean brain! I tend to be a bit random, but love a good chat with people - don't worry I don't bite! Unlike those damn tortoises...
On another note, I write music and am currently studying music at college - I love most kinds of music, but when I play (piano mainly) its jazz and blues, but when I'm writing the music I tend to like doing orchestral stuff... go figure  ::)

YouTube introduced me to Rimworld. I had just come off of a re-kindled interest of Skyrim and its mods when I saw this game being played by a Youtuber, and I thought I just had to give this game a go. I'll tell you what Tynan, you made an awesome game!
The specific thing that got me into this game, was how the story is essentially driven, written and played out by the player. The fact that it feels like there is a story behind each and every colonist makes me really pang for a certain colonist after they die. I love it!

Haha, what's my favourite other game? Could you ask me a more difficult and evil question!?!
In all seriousness, thats a really hard question to answer. Stardrive is my favourite 4X game, Skyrim is my favourite RPG game, ArmA 2/3 is my favourite I hate you and you should die game... to be honest the list could go on. I love so many games!

Most embarrassing gaming incident, eh... would have been back in my PS1 days. I used to play this game called Magic Carpet, loved the thing. There used to be this one monster though, some kinda worm if I remember correctly, and I used to be absolutly terrified of it, so much so that once, when I had friends over and we were playing the game, I burst out crying in front of everyone. Looking back now, I'm so embarressed of myself.  :P

SHREDDIES WITH SHOOGER, LOTS OF SHOOGER. AND BLUE MALK.

Thanks,

Zeph ;)

Hi, I'm Thorin (not from lotr, it's a combination of Thor and Odin ;) )
I'm from the Netherlands and work for a logistics company.
I've studies chemistry, decided that it, although very interesting, wouldn't be my job for as long as I'm alive.
In the same time (while studying, pc's were coming out (xt's, 286. yeah I'm that old :D) )
Since that caught my interest too, I decided to start learning programming (mainframe and .net), later on switched to databases and now being a system administrator.
But that's enough about me, time to answer some questions.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Well, Blitzkriegsler and Yeti (both youtubers) did/do a good, funny and overall enjoyable series.
And I also tend to like this sort of games (sandbox/rouge-like)

-What's your favorite other game?
This question should be plural in my case, I've enjoyed in the past 20 years loads of good games.
I started with the general fps (wolfenstein, doom, unreal tournament's, C&C's). Went into the decennium of mmo-rpg's but got bored quickly (I've tried, honest). Now it's all about building, managing and surviving versus the environment. Just to name a few: Unreal World, Towns, X3:TC, Minecraft, Starbound etc.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
When there is gravity and a hole present, I tend to end up barely alive in said hole.
Because I don't fear Gravity only the end of the journey.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Frosties offcourse.

Hello Ludeon Team! & Tynan

First off I gotta say this game looks great of course I got the idea oh a copy but as I read deeper and deeper I found out how truly unique this game is compared to most even its inspired dwarf fortress game! I love the direction the game seems to be heading.. And wow I was shocked to see that they keep a nice google doc log updated for us to see daily whats happened! I was in search and in need of a great new single player game and this one seems to really be an eye grabber for me!  I myself am a indie game dev more or less in training but I love the fact it uses unity combined with Tynans tactical game engine! Very inspiring, so I have come to hopefully setup a home here and do a little modding in this community perhaps I can fit right into this place. Last thing I want to say is that this community is not only really big but also active! I can't wait to have already bought this game when all my steam buddies are checking it out! I will be spreading the word, and I will be excited to follow the blogs and change logs frequently! Thanks for your hard work Tynans and the team :)

happy to make my home here as the game grows!

Hello hello!

I'm yet another refugee of the Double Fine Spacebase DF9 debacle and at least I can say that something good did come out of that disappointing situation in that I found out about Rimworld from their Steam forums.   Suffice it to say that it was quite a blow to discover that what I was so confident in being a 'sure thing' because it's Double Fine turned out to be not like that at all, especially since it has become apparent that DF considers Early Access to be a testing ground for them as apparently they assume everyone who donates to their Kickstarter or buys into their Early Access is happy to throw money at them because they're so awesome and who cares if a game actually is produced, we just love throwing money at Double Fine just cuz it's so fun, why else would we do it?!  Ahem. Yeah, not so much.

Anyway,  Rimworld is the silver lining for me in this disappointing situation and surprisingly I've also managed to bring my husband along as well because even though he isn't usually interested in simulators like this, all I had to do was mention 'Firefly' and 'Warhammer 40k', then send him a link to the website and he was hooked.  ;)

My name is Dave, I'm a 30 yr old gamer from the U.S.  I started playing Atari when I was 2 yrs old, and I never stopped.  I was a console gaming guy up until last year.  I discovered the huge world of PC gaming and I'm never going back. 

I heard of Rimworld by watching Scott Manly play it on YouTube. I've been waiting for this kind of game for a long time! Its so awesome!  I bought it a few days ago and I already have 16 hours in.  Its so amazing!  If you go mobile please consider Windows Phone!  Windows 10 will make it so easy to get it from PC to mobile!

Other games I play: Anything with survival aspect to it.  Haha!  Space Sims, fps games.  I'm super excited about Star Citizen!

Embarrassing game moment: In BF3 my friends and I were clearing out a building.  He came around the corner and it startled me so bad that I blew him away with my Remington 870.

If I am in the mood for cereal its honey-nut cheerios. Haha!

I also wanted to say keep up the great work! I like how there is a new update every 1-2 months!  You seem to really enjoy what you do, and you definitely do a great job.  Thanks man!  Oh, are you still going to hire an artist to change the look of the game?  Or did you do that already? I think the game looks great as it is!  I would rather you use the money for more features :)

some basics:

I enjoy playing games and exploring new things :) but spend way to much time playing games and messing around with new tech and programing , also enjoy playing rugby and other sports such as paintball le pew pew for the win , I currently live in South Africa , though travel around the globe when ever its needed for work and visiting friends :) my current job description is Biometrics developer aka I develop and work with fingerprint units that clients use in security and time and attendance , and a bit of web site development on the side and rebuilding Bikes xD ok that should do for the intro .

I ended up at RimWorld by visiting a friend and he had the game I had a look at it and played it a bit and well now I am stuck here helping with a bit of translating and such all in all happy to be around .

I enjoyed the X series of games loved the X3 : terran conflict , rebirth was a waist sigh .
 
Most embarrassing gaming-related story? I use to play competitive gaming in CS ( counter strike) after playing for about 4 days with no sleep I ended up using my hot dog as a mouse and screaming over the mic that my PC is haunted with a daemon from the local supermarket , aaa fun times .

Cereal hmmm I like all kinds :) though toast will do just fine as well :D

Oh hi there. I'm a freshly graduated student: IT, software programming, web dev, databases and such; and currently hesitating whether I should emigrate or not. France is boring.

I was introduced to Rimworld by a streamer, actually. Chris Ball, A.K.A. Sacriel. Dude's awesome and British, therefore even more awesome.

Other favorite game? S.T.A.L.K.E.R., no contest. FPS with RPG elements, open-ish world and organic, free traveling AI makes for countless of playthroughs, each different from the previous one. That and the modding community is pretty good on this game series. Don't tell me "Oh well you should try out Fallout then" DON'T. Fallout is an RPG and the combat system is terrible. I want my guns to feel like they throw LEAD down range, not wet sponges. Also, slow-mo autoaim? Really?

Did I mention I have a tendency to ramble? Also sometimes I get over 9k ideas a minute, only to forget them later on if I don't deem them important, which is often.

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Well it's not embarrassing for me, but more for its community. Meet World of Tanks, a game where a shit player like me who just knows the basics is statistically better than 82% of the playerbase  :-\

It's good to have some idea of who you're talking to. So, if they wish, new members of the forum can post here to introduce themselves.

Say as much or as little as you like. But you could answer questions like:
-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
-What's your favorite other game?
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

And/or put up ridiculous pictures, as you see fit.

I shall start below!


Hi my name's Alex. I'm 32 years and from Germany. I play games since the Atari 2600. But I really started to get interested in this simulation genre with Football Managers on the Amiga.
But I like to play all kinds of games and do so if I find the time (and I always do despite my job and my 5 month old daughter :)
I played tons of games but there are a few I always keep coming back: Startopia (thanks to the Steam revival), Dwarf Fortress and Space Station 13.
I also played a lot of Battlefield and TF2 and play them from time to time.
My favourite game right now (besides RimWorld) is Path of Exile.
I came across RimWorld in a comment on the news on Steam that Spacebase DF-9 developement is not going to be continued. I bought it immediately because the potential is obvious I fell in love with it. It's so DF-ey but with that nice UI. It's so awesome! I can even build my bases inside a mountain :D
I try to help with the translation but it's already translated really good (thx Haplo)

Hi! I'm from Sweden and I have played games since the NES/Amiga and PC games since Eye of the Beholder (which I wasn't supposed to play for some reason).

- I played a lot of Dwarf fortress, Nethack, ZAngband, and other roguelikes - like FTL and Spelunky. I was Reading on the dwarf fortress suggestion forums, and found someone mentioning the pavement tiles in this game and how they increase movement speed. I do play other games, but I am mostly a collector of games when it comes to playing them. I enjoy management games a lot, aswell, so when it comes to this game it's a perfect match between management and randomness.
- My "favourite" game would be ... hard to tell. Favourites generally means you have a game that you play exclusively. For example, some of my friends only play terraria all the time. Some of them only play TF2. But I prefer to play different games a Little at a time.
- I have a ton of painted space marines standing on a shelf, so I'm a tabletop wargamer which means I paint figures every now and then.
- I have actually followed Tynan's example and installed Unity for 2D! It's going to be awesome.
- Most embarrassing gaming moment was when me and my buddy were playing Neocron during (Swedish). He dressed up in pink/magenta leather pants to embarrass me when he said "come here, let's go".
- My favourite cereal is that honey draped Oat, with a lot of milk on it. But I generally don't eat cereal.
- My favourite non-cereal is when someone has left over food from yesterday. Perfect nutrients and fills you well.
- My favourite non-cereal, non-leftover is making an omelet out of eggs and cheese. It's just to fill the stomach, really. I would rather eat real food.
- I also remember playing games online with people and them going "you asshole" on me. On the other hand, I had some nice interactions with people too. Neocron was my favourite MMORPG, or EGO SHOOTER as they wanted to call themselves. Sounds nice. A game for the egoists *sarcasm*. Or perhaps you shoot the egoists? Still, I remember the Malevolent Crackheads player killing me a lot down there in the outer parts of the city (Neocron). Actually just once because I didn't want to repeat the process, but still. It was a malevolent crackhead. He was not very nice to me.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
The Kickstarter campaign of course! I had to sign up as soon as I saw what the game was like and it's awesome Dev. I've always love base-builders and survival so the combo has me in ecstasy.
 
-What's your favorite other game?
League of Legends, it seriously used to be an addiction. Any of you fellow League players are welcome to add me, same IGN! I'm very kind and play the game for fun. You'll never find me raging over something as silly as losing a game. The reason I state this is so hopefully you'll get the message that I like to play with happy people, not ragers. ;)

Well I once almost beat this 12 year old at CoD MW2 but he was gonna f**k my mom so I had to quit. :(

Hi guys/Tynon,

I'm Nick.
I got into Rimworld after watching a video of Scott Manley playing it.
I love the 'cosy' feel of Rimworld and the whole concept of being stranded on a far off world.

I've recently been playing a lot of Kerbal Space Program and Xenonauts.

Porridge is the only breakfast cereal you ever need.

I like to support indy developers as I feel I get a purer gaming experience and more of a connection with the developer.
My ex-girlfriend used to work for Critereon games (now owned by EA) and understand what it takes to produce games of this quality - of which I have utmost admiration for.
I'm looking forward to becoming more active in the Rimworld community.

Hello world, I'm Ackapus

I started playing Rimworld after watching my buddy Zaakath play it all the time on his laptop at D&D while waiting for his turn to come back around.  Never played anything quite like this, although I have played the Sims, Civilization, and Xcom, which Rimworld seems to be a certain pastiche thereof.

My other favorite game?  Hard to narrow it down... Big fan of Civ V and Beyond Earth, StarCraft and Diablo, Portal, and was kinda into Halo back before Xbox Live made everyone a glitch-jumping bug-exploiting screaming maniac.  Was even a beta tester in There... not that it went anywhere.  My strongest gaming affinity probably has to go to C&C Renegade.  If only Westwood had hung in there....

Most embarrassing?  Well, when Renegade came out I was in college, and the net admin actually ran a gaming clan out of the computer lab.  Those guys had played C&C Gold back on Kali and dial-up 28.8 modems, and they followed the C&C franchise to the depths of EA's mismanagement.  However, he put together a team for Renegade, and I was on it, practicing in the lab during school hours and being more vocal than I should have.  Well, the entire staff of the computer lab wasn't in on the gaming, and after a particularly aggrieved death during an online match I let loose a string of profanities and heard a voice chastising me for it from across the room.  I jumped up out of my seat, ready to let more profanities loose, and saw the building manager staring at me as he was walking to his office.  To this day, I attribute divine providence to the wisdom I had to silently sit back down and watch my damn mouth.

Breakfast cereal?  What the hell is that?  Breakfast is any leftovers I happen to have in the fridge.  Cereal is for eating on a whim at any time except breakfast.

Hi all,

My name's Khazuk, a gamer that comes in all shapes and sizes. Mostly round.
I'm a freelancer by trade, mostly fixing computers and digital art.
I also work at Logistics in the evening. So people will get their package in time thanks to me!
I also run my own community. But not just any community.
To let people get the gist of it : it's essentially going to be a steam-raptr-enjin hybrid.
A webshop for games and accessories, giveaways and rewards trough activity and guild page hosting!

I got introduced to Rimworld by a friend of mine, who got me addicted to an older Alpha version (4? 5?), it made me essentially buy the game for te newer content.

Currently my favourite game that's actually released is... uhm..
wait, I only play alpha games at the moment. But let's just say I'm looking forward to Star Citizens(Sorry Ludeon!)
I also play PayDay2, Diablo 3 and Warframe.
And I also practice this heresy you call sports. I shall not get into the details before I'll have a pitchfork in my buttocks.

My favourite cereal... I don't like cereal, so that should about sum it up :p

Hello everyone, I've been around browsing this forum for quite a while, reading everything here and there, people's stories (funny!) and checking out mostly the mod section, which has many creative and caring people doing excellent mods. And so, being such an interesting game, I finally bought it.

Funny simple looking game, with very complex mechanics and a very interesting freedom. I love sandbox games - it's like lego in infant years.  :D

I also know Prison Architect, which relates to this game. Both very creative and attention catching. Mind over visuals, when the trend is to have everything HD...

My other favorite games: well, since the 80's I have some. From

Renegade and Back to School to 48k,
Alex Kid to Master System,
Streets of Rage 2, Pirates Gold, Centurion Defender of Rome to Mega-Drive,
Metal Gear, Resident Evil and Gran Turismo to psx
Gladiator Begins for psp
As to PC, which has the best game database ever, there's many, but I can't recall them all. (But Bethesda Games come to mind in recent years  :))

Indie games, I love Craft the World and I've also been following Space Engineers. This era has been booming with intelligent games!

"-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?"  ::)

CTD because my game exploded with so many mods! Or Rimworld related, watching the siege gangs AI charge my base with extreme hypothermia in the ice biodome mod.

Favorite cereals - golden grams and muesli type of cereals.

In conclusion - I'm very happy with my purchase and proud to support the game.  ;D

Hello creators, modders, and fans of RimWorld.

My name is "Stannis" after the One True King of Westeros  ;) and I am a family man from Texas.

I got excited about RimWorld after watching some "let's plays" on YouTube of Alpha 8 and thought "whoa, this game is the next big thing!" Oddly, I found out later that I had already supported it on Steam, and just forgot about it, or didn't understand fully at the time what I was supporting.

My wife was kind enough to get it for me for Christmas, and I have been slowly working my way up from basebuilder to rough, and am thinking of using some intriguing mods soon as they update to alpha 8.

My favorite games are Elder Scrolls 5, Civ 4, and Heroes of Might and Magic 3.

I am a big proponent of getting RimWorld out on Steam as soon as possible in order to grow the player and modder base. RimWorld is more ready than most non-early access titles and is certainly among the most polished early access titles Steam will see, and is already for sale early access, just not on Steam.

I noticed that Ludeon was proud of reaching 50,000 sales of RimWorld, as well they should be since they started out with a plea to the community on Kickstarter and after a lot of sacrifice now have a gem on their hands. Why not even be more proud with 500,000 to a million or more sales on Steam?

In all honesty, I wouldn't have purchased this game because it was not on Steam, which is why my wife got it for me anyway. How many more people are in the same boat?

In addition to the shear size of the market, Steam has a couple of other "musts" for RimWorld; the top of the list is the Workshop. Ludeon must be credited for making their title readily moddable; in time I believe RimWorld could rival Skyrim in terms of the awesomeness of its mods and modding community; the Workshop will facilitate that.

I envision colony vs colony mods; fantasy mods, prehistoric "Civilization" mods, as well as mods to flesh out the details of the game in a way a studio, no matter how storied could match due to the other responsibilities of game production (think Bethesda and Skyrim).

I want RimWorld to join the likes of Skyrim and Civ V as most played games in the ever-expanding gaming universe - I call upon Ludeon to respond to the community that helped Kickstart its magnum opus and release on Steam as soon as possible!

Thanks!

Hello all I am a 47 year old gamer and gone by the name on line Vonholtz sense the 90's. I loved games like civ and master of orion. Of late I have been testing games like War Thunder and World of Tanks. As well as some newer games like project zomboid. But I have wanted a game like Civ again.

So I have been watching a few youtubers and found Rimworld. Thanks to people like Falcon and MathasGames.

I am hoping to see more of this game and maybe make some suggestion down the line. Oh it seem my first game of rimworld is going good but it seem heat and sickness will take my first try. And it fun as hell even if I lose it all.

Cheers Vonholtz

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I backed a game on kickstarter, and when their forum heard I liked Prison Architect, they recommended Rimworld. I'm just trying to figure out a couple of things about the game before I buy it.

-What's your favorite other game?

Civ, Prison Architect, Portal... SteamWorld Dig, Final Fantasy X, Pokémon, Titan Quest Gold... too many to list.

I am Dianna, and I like to play video games. *nod*

Hi,

James here, absolutely loving Rimworld.

How did I find Rimworld? The props must go to Quill18 and one of his let's plays. Honourable mention to Splattercat and Falcon too.

I'm mainly a console gamer but love my strategy so Paradox games, Matrix etc are a big time sink for me.

I  love games that allow you enough sandbox to create your own narrative while still being at the mercy of harsh reality.

Just one question though, I'm having problems knowing how/where to patch the game to the latest build so any advice would be welcome.

Whilst I understand that 'how hard it is' is subjective, I'm trying to get a feel for how hard it is because I don't want to give out this much money for a game that will prove too challenging--I've got a steam library full of games that I paid one to three dollars for on sale, and a lot of them got deinstalled because I couldn't work out how to play them, even after watching YT videos (and YT vids are guilty of making things look easy). Had I realised how HARD Portal 1 and 2's end bosses would be for me, I wouldn't have bought them, for example.

Hello, everyone! I'm Sylvera. I skipped over the "L" key somehow on my horrible laptop keyboard, so I guess i'm now "Syvera", which I suppose isn't a huge deal. Haha.

I'm a 25 year old gamer, writer, and occasional freelance programmer. I've spent the better part of 12 years writing my own Science Fiction stories, though i've never had anything published. The storyline potential of Rimworld excites me, and I am certainly looking forward to seeing how it develops in the future; not that i'm implying it isn't already amazing!

I grew up playing Real Time Strategy and Roleplaying games, like Command & Conquer, Moon Project, Final Fantasy Tactics, Ogre Battle 64, etc. I'm also a Brony, Doctor Who fan and fan of Warhammer 40K.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

> I was looking up random "Let's Play" videos on Youtube and found a Let's Play of Rimworld. After watching it for a few episodes I decided this was definitely a game I had to have. The raw potential is staggering! I could certainly see it becoming even more popular than Minecraft in the future. No, really; it's epic!


-What's your favorite other game?

 > Honestly, it's near impossible for me to pick an absolute favorite. However, the top 5 would have to be:

1: Dofus - An amazing Turn-Based MMORPG I used to play.
2: Asheron's Call - A very old MMORPG, which I still play to this day. My favorite of the Genre.
3: Disgaea - A great Strategy RPG that i've spent hundreds of hours playing. Very addictive!
4: Minecraft (Modded) - Always so much to do!
5: Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 - Of all the C&C Games, I played this one the most. :>

Actually, you choose the difficulty as part of starting a game. It ranges from 10% (base builder mode) to 160% (or higher? I play mostly 60% myself).  It's quite enjoyable, and there's lots of mods toy can use, and even Dev Mode if you want more control over environment & events.

Hi all, this is rrooster from the Finnish Lapland.

I just realized I bought Rimworld exactly one year ago to the day (though I've only played alphas 1, 3 and 8 ). So, I figured I'll introduce myself as I've recently joined the forums as well.

If I remember correctly I first learned of Rimworld via the youtuber Zemalf who ran an early look series in late 2013.

Favorite other games include Civ 4, Fallout series, Cataclysm: DDA, DF, FM series.

Probably the most embarrasing thing about me gaming is how much time I spend planning as opposed to actually advancing game time and playing the damn thing. This is especially true with trying to get the best possible starting location in Civ 4 and was partially true with Rimworld until I figured out how stone types are distributed in the world map (marble and granite for the win...). I also spend a lot of time planning my colony's layout before unpausing, this can be embarrassing if, say, the colony gets wiped out in early game...  (Exhibit A: https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=8988.0).

For breakfast? Oatmeal porridge!

Post by: milon on January 05, 2015, 11:13:29 AM
Welcome, rrooster!  How is stone distributed on the world map?  I also love marble & granite, and the best I have right now is slate & granite.
(PS - Really enjoyed your story!)

(PS - Really enjoyed your story!)

I don't know if this is 100% correct, but to me it looks like each horizontal line on the map has a defined configuration of stone types (the top most horizontal line of the map seems to always have marble and granite, for example). So to find the desired rock types you just click down (or up) on a vertical line until you find what you're looking for and then scan the horizontal line for a good starting location. I assume there to always be at least a few "lines" on each map that only contain marble and granite, so the above method speeds up the search significantly.

And thanks again for the compliment. I'm beginning to find out that creating a narrative to a playthrough makes it that much harder to just revert back to an earlier save file when something small or big goes wrong. To make it be about the journey not the destination.

Hey everyone, Soft_Machine_Man. I'm an American (specifically from Florida) gamer, history student, and speculative fiction enthusiast who spends far too much time on his butt.

-What introduced you to RimWorld?

I first encountered RimWorld around Alpha 3 after videos on YouTube started popping up like daisies, and I started watching them. Being a fan of Dwarf Fortress (and DF-likes in general) I decided that I'd get it once it got into a later Alpha.

-What's your favorite other game?

Man, I have too many to succinctly list. Suffice it to say my interests vary greatly.

-Most embarrassing game-related moment?

Causing a fatal driver crash on my (first generation model) PS3 by glitching out Fallout: New Vegas. Dat Bethesda quality.

Hello all! I hail from California, USA

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
My friend/roommate has been playing it for a long time. I recently started paying Prison Architect again and realized it was similar to RimWorld so I'd give it a try. I may or may not be addicted now. Mostly may.

-What's your favorite other game?
Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, League of Legends

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I am failing to think of anything I would consider embarrassing. I can think of disappointing gaming-related story so I'll tell one of those and I'll keep it short (which makes it a boring story). About a decade ago when I was having regular LANs in my parents garage, my parents left out of town for the weekend and let me have friends over for a LAN. We ended up having almost 40 people there. I never imagined I'd actually properly utilize the 24-port switch I had. Anyway, the entire LAN was for the original Warhammer 40k PC game. I was pretty decent, but stressed out trying to get everyone connected, getting a 16-port switch, etc. I ended up getting knocked out in the first round.

The final match was between two friends and they ended up being in a stalemate. The game was dragging on and neither team could pull an advantage. The brother of one of the players went to his opponent and told him he had a weak spot and he should send everything. Since the game had gone on for a very long time at this point he didn't give a shit and sent everything he had. He ended up losing and the story is retold from time to time and wounds are re-opened. Anyway, yeah, I don't have an embarrassing story. :p

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I don't eat breakfast cereal. I do love making biscuits, bagels, pretzels, etc., from scratch the night before and then using them to make breakfast sandwiches.

Lastly, I would like to leave everyone with a screenshot from when I beat the game.

Greetings DFDelta from germany here.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Been following the game and lurking ever since it popped up on Steam Greenlight. Finally decided to stop waiting and get a pack a few days ago.

-What's your favorite other game?
I'm jumping around a lot, mostly between various games of the MechWarrior franchise, Planetside 2, Space Station 13 and Dwarf Fortress.
Also formerly Shores of Hazeron before its solo dev shut it down. (Not that I expect anyone to know that game  ::))

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Don't remember anything really embarrassing.
The most fitting one would be that one time I managed to die more often during a raid evening with my World of Warcraft guild then everyone else combined.
In my defense there were not many deaths to beginn with since we all knew the dungeon we were in and all my deaths were unrelated to combat.
Still, being the guy who got killed by the terrain 8 or 9 times in less then 3 hours stuck with me for quite a few years.  ;D

'Ello all :)  Figured I'd sign up for the forums since I've been playing RimWorld for a while.  I have to say that it's an interesting little game.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I've been interested in the genre for a while.  I played Dwarf Fortress a few years back, but never really got very far in it (though I did have plenty of !!fun!!).  I've also played around with a few other games with similar elements, like Stranded, Minecraft, NetHack (which I've also never really gotten that far in), and a few other roguelikes and survival games that I don't remember because they didn't really hold my attention for very long.  I've also played a fair number of settlement-building games, such as the Tropico series, SimCity 2000, Caesar II, and Grand Ages:  Rome.

I was introduced to RimWorld by a friend on another forum I frequent, who likes these sorts of games quite a bit himself and highly recommended it to me.

-What's your favorite other game?

I'm not sure I can really pick one, to be honest.  I've been a fan of games like Civilization since I was really young, as well as a few of the games I've already listed above.  Lately, I've been playing an awful lot of Crusader Kings II and Kerbal Space Program as well.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Years ago, I was playing co-op multiplayer with a friend in a shooter.  I forget the exact circumstances, but the only weapons we allowed on the field were rocket launchers.  I happened to line up a shot that would bag quite a few of the opposing AI bots in the blast range... and then my friend ran out in front of me trying to line up the same shot himself just as I pulled the trigger.  Needless to say, it killed us both.

Introduced me:
I'm subscribed to quill18, a Let's-Player. He's doing these videos.

It reminds me somewhat of Evil Genius, so my first base, which is also still going strong, has a very simple entrance identical to my entrace to the Evil Part of my Super Secret Evil Lair when I played through that game: It's a short hallway, a 180 turn, and another short hallway to some doors on the side. There are nine turrets and some sandbags, but I don't slowdown the entrance with sandbags.

Seed: 1337 (because), I made a base from the completely enclosed but open area with a building attached on the western side, south eastern corner of the map.

Favorite other game: Master of Magic

Hey guys and gals how you doing?

My name is Barney:

What introduced me to rimworld?:
More like who... I played Gnomoria and fell in love at first sight... i was a t a friends the other day who said *hey Barn, how you doing on gnomoria...? you're gonna love this...* so he handed me the lap-top... and regretted it for the next 5 and a half hours :D, so he did me a cd copy (i know, i know... i AM going to buy this game, next week in-fact, so i can keep updated)

Favourite other Gane(s):
Too many to list, but i will mention a few:
Dungeon Keeper (first and fore-most) which is the game which introduced me to this kind of genre... Also, a lot of MMO's (Yes... WoW included!!!)... Civilization games (namely the Civ series, Ceaser and Children of the nile)

Embrassing Game story:
ok.. truthfuly, holding my grudge as long as i have, let me explain... it was EVE online, 2010... my old friend introduced me to it... he got me into his corp... i was his salvager... a few weeks go by and i fell like i'm getting a duff deal... so, i challenge him and quit the corp... he says if that was how i truely felt, he would give me a big send off... He said if i could run a *pipe-system* all the way there and back, in my stripped Domi, he would not only let me quit he corp without re-buff, he would also give me 5 bill isk (i know he was good for it so i accepted)... TWO JUMPS is all i had left on the way back up the pipe... he was waiting for me, with 8 other corpies... i haven't forgiven, nore spoken to him since.

Breakfast cereal:

Has to be a toasted egg sandwhich (ok... get a toasty sandwhich toaster (the one that flipd open/close) butter your bread, but yous 3 slices (dont butter the 3rd... cut a hole into it) place the first slice as you normally would... put the slice with the hole as the 2nd, but a raw egg in the hole, but 3rd slice on, close lid, wait 5 mins... PERFECT soft fried egg sandwhich!

So, I'm Teemu from Finland, usually known by my "hacker" alias Mythrell :).

I'm pretty much ADHD in everything I do so mileage on my projects may wary, right now I'm spending too much time making a mod for this game.

Also, I had Rimworld game idea years ago and it's nice to see that someone is making my game. Well, ok, it wasn't exactly this, but close enough :).

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Quill18 is the culprit behind my interest of  RimWorld, my big brother and Jagged Alliance back in 90's is for the second one.

-What's your favorite other game?
I have to say that currently it's Hearthstone. Or maybe Hearts of Iron 3. Probably both. There's really too many favorite games to list if you consider whole gaming history. :)

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
It's probably the moment in CS 1.6 when we were playing official clanbase match and I got -1/12 stats in first half. Then again, it has turned into one of those fun memories so I guess it used to be my most embarassing gaming-related story.

I've been lurking the mod forum too long. Should probably make one of these.

Hi, I'm LoC978 (just Loc, if you're not fond of numbers). Been playing since Alpha 3.
I live in oregon, out in the woods... though I'll be moving back to the city this year. I'm a displaced semiconductor manufacturing industry electrical worker who joined the US Army out of desperation a bit over a decade ago. Messed up my back and leg overseas, so now I pass the wee hours of the morning when I can't sleep with games like Rimworld (Slow-paced, pausable, playable in bed on my linux box). I'm a child of the 90s, born in the dawn of the 80s.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Rimworld specifically... I think it was an introduction of the pre-alpha on youtube by EnterElysium... who I was watching out of curiosity from a StarMade collaboration with HOCgaming... who I initially started watching for tips on getting a stable orbit without burning all of my delta-V in Kerbal Space Program. But I digress (often).
Can't say I've ever actually encountered another game of this style.

-What's your favorite other game?
Well, I've already mentioned my favorite voxel-based stuff-building sandbox (in which I totally plan to build a 1:1 New Republic Nebula-class Star Destroyer, because I'm a bit of a Star Wars geek... unfortunately I'm having trouble finishing a little GR-75 Gallofree transport. I did finish a Gamma-class assault shuttle, though!)
...and my favorite rocket science via explosions simulator...
I suppose I could go by genre, or by series... suffice to say, favorites are hard for me to nail down, so...
-Fallout. All of 'em. Except for the one that never happened. They can all be played with a mouse and keyboard. The other one never happened.
-Final Fantasy 4 and 6... also Chrono Trigger. A bit of that is nostalgia, but they still hold up for me.
-The Dark Forces series, all the way up to Dark Forces 4: Jedi Knight 3: Jedi Academy. Best nested title ever, and best lightsaber slash-em-up ever.
-Freespace 2, though I should give this slot to TIE Fighter, without which I never would have learned to used a flightstick... or a 3.5" floppy drive... or DOS.
-Sins of a Solar Empire. It's unique in my experience, though it shares a UI feature with Rimworld and...
-Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance.
...A UI feature that has spoiled me. I now believe a full-map zoom out is absolutely essential to the function of any real-time strategy game. Can't even stand to go back and play Starcraft or Total Annihilation anymore. All that panning! ... and the minimap, ugh.

Where was I? Oh, right.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
*deleted paragraph here* ...NSFW, even in text form. Suffice to say it involved my ex trying to get my attention followed by me failing to help defend my roommate's base in a LAN game of Supreme Commander.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

When I was in the army, Total.
Now... soylent is the closest thing I consume. That and straight espresso.

I read about this game in one russian game-forum, there were very good opinions about it. 'Twas in spring of 2014, but I bought game only in december lol. I like sci-fi theme in art (I mean movies, games, drawing, books, etc.) and this game has 2 things I like: survival + sci-fi :) Actually, I like everything about space or another worlds.
And also I wanna help this project, at least with tranlation to Russian.Maybe I will try to make mods in future too :)

-What's your favorite other game?
Well, I prefer different indie-games (especially rogue-like) since 2010.
Also I like to play War Thunder (my dream came true finallly: I knocked down enemy plane via tank, haha) and LoL (EUW, "Astrylian", if someone wanna play together,but I should get upwards again, thanks bad promo10 games :/) sometimes, and returned to WoW with new addon.

Hmm, it was february of 2010, we were raiding in WoW with my static 10ppl. One day I went to birthday party of my friend and skipped raid-time,cause I was too drunk and forgot about this. Embarrassing totally, cause I was raid-leader of my static :< And our tank disappointed in me, fortunately for a few days only :D

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I saw mention of it once on Prison Architect's Steam forum, and I'd already seen (briefly, since it was finished already) the Kickstarter page. I'm a HUGE fan of management games of this nature, and I knew I had to try it out.

-What's your favorite other game?
Chrono Trigger. AAA games today STILL pale in comparison to many of the games of old, and Chrono Trigger is one of the games that I simply can't get tired of. If you haven't played it, I'd highly recommend getting an SNES emulator and trying it.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I don't think I have one... :/

Cinnamon Toast Crunch, hands down.

Hello, I'm Jules - or "Envie" - or "Vex" in most games I play.

Being a girl-gamer, I've found not many of my fellow female gamers enjoy RTS Survival or FPS Survival games which are two of my favorites. I also love the traditional fantasy games and MMO's that tend to draw a bigger number of women but have moved away from that genre recently after years of it and being pretty burnt out on the whole thing.

Here's my answers to Tynan's intro questions:

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I actually read about Rimworld in a post somewhere on Reddit with a list of "Best City/Colony Builder Games for 2015" or something like that. I was immediately hooked when I took a look at some Lets Plays. I watched Cohh Carnage play through his 'tutorial' sessions and loved it! I've been searching for a good solid RTS colony or city builder for awhile now but frustrated at the lack of good ones. I think the first RTS I ever played that had me hooked for hours on end was Age of Empires. The most recent one I loved was Anno 2070 - a great futuristic colony game. But those games lacked the human AI factor ... the sim-personas I had always wanted for storytelling. I'd rather tell my own stories as they develop than have the game dictate that. I love sandbox games for that reason.

-What's your favorite other game?

My all time favorite game is Fallout 3. Yep, I'm a die-hard post apocalypse survival fan to the core. I'm pretty sick of everyone overdoing the zombie theme though ... can't we just have a good nuclear-wasteland survival game that's like Mad Max meets Fallout meets Firefly?? :)

Rimworld satisfies my need for doomsday survival quite nicely - I love it!

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

This is a tough one since I haven't played a lot of multiplayer games in the past year or so other than some dabbling in 7 Days to Die and the other zombie games. I did accidentally leave my teamspeak mic on one time and could be heard by my entire gaming guild using the toilet and singing while doing it (bathroom right next to my bedroom and desk) ... that was pretty embarrassing but that was years ago in an MMO I shall not name haha!

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

NONE! Breakfast cereals are for sneaking a bowl of your kids favorite nasty flavor late at night while staying up way too late playing Rimworld! Breakfast of champions is strong coffee and a Tex-mex breakfast burrito Austin style!

And/or put up ridiculous pictures, as you see fit.

Hi, I will probably never post on these forums again, but I wanted to com by and say thank you.

I'm reaching a stage in my life where I have 40 game icons on my desktop and I don't feel like playing any of them. I was starting to think I don't love gaming any more. Thank you for proving me wrong.

Saw the game on a friend's Twitch channel, went, man, this looks cool. Got the, uh, demo version, started playing. What followed was 3 days of pure gaming addiction. Forgot to eat, etc etc. Came up for air long enough to come by here, and buy the game, as I have already gotten more than my money's worth of enjoyment and gaming bliss.

Thank you for getting rid of the Z-level.

Thank you for the work you did on the graphics, the waving grass, the bolts of lightning.

And thank you 1000 times for the Xcom-style fire propagation, and aiming mechanism. It brought a tear to my eye. So great to see my guys shoot each other etc.

Thank you for just having a few factors to deal with. There are a lot of factors, but just enough.

Having said that, this game still needs a lot of work, research in particular. As it stands, it's like, 'hey we need research in the game, so here's some stuff', whereas it needs to be a driving force behind the evolution. That's what research is for, to open up possibilities. Make the bench cheap, give the player a 'guns or butter' choice right away, and expand from there, opening up new weapon/building/production choices. It's the only major flaw I can see with the game, although I could go on with the minor ones, lol.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Watched some game play from Martysgames, couldn't get enough of it, which led me to buy it for myself. I love the level of decision making and personalizing that are available in it as well as the risk of disaster at any moment.
-Why do I play video games?
Introduced to gaming by my father at a young age on Atari PCs and consoles and never let it go. Good memories then & many more since!
-Why do I make videos of game play?
I found a way to work around a bug in the PS3 version of the Fallout 3 DLC The Pitt. Wild Bill's sidearm would fall through the floor & I discovered a route to get over the the map boundaries in order to retrieve it. I posted a lengthy explanation of how to accomplish this. A few days later I went back to try and clarify what I had said and found that my explanation had been replaced by a video that was much easier to follow. Slightly annoyed by my hard work vanishing and realizing that I could have done that if I knew a little more has led me to do tutorials and general game play videos on my own YouTube channel.

-What's your favorite other games?
Fallout 3 for the freedom to explore and choose your characters progression in both abilities and moral dilemmas.
Resident Evil 5 because killing the undead never get old and was a great coop game.
Minecraft because creating without limits is a new experience every time.
-Other games I am spending a lot of time with lately?
7 Days To Die & Space Engineers are both great for the freedom to create and conquer in an unwieldy environment.

HI,

My name is Ranko. I have to thank Law school for being immensely boring, because I ran away from it to become theatre actor. Ever since that moment I've been doing nothing but dreamjobs. After 25ish years in gaming jounalism during and interview with enterpreneur I became game designer. Then, after few years and several games I've realized that Game Designer is huge thing and started calling that myself less often (nowadays I prefer writer for games). My first passion, in fact, is writing and I've published several books.

- What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Well as kid I had lot of a) building bricks, b) action figures, c) vehicles they could ride, d) pieces of cloth (for floors) and e) misc toy items. So my fav game was to do what I do in Rimworld - build a base and narrate their drama... I was avid player of colony games ever since and intermediate DF player. For RimWorld I was interested when I realized it combines colony management with drama directing AI (my fav area of research).

- Why do I play video games?
To learn something new. To live the experience. Believe it or not, I learned English from old ZX Spectrum games and a lot of history starting from strategy games (like Desert Rats).

- Why do I make games?
For the same reason I guess... I want player to learn something from having experience.

- What's your favorite other game?
One of my all time favorites is Midwinter... Exploration games are special sort of experience I guess...

- Most embarassing game-related story?
During high school I lost some good friends over "Republic of Rome" feud. The game's intrigue spilled over to real life and we reconnected only recently....

- What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Eggs are the best breakfast, imho...

It's only fair that ridiculous picture is one of me (from my theatre days)

Hey,

I'm MrSurvivor (T^T I want a better username) and I really enjoyed playing Rimworld!
I'm currently in my freshman year and I'm a big fan of all management games and strategy games.

I have been playing video games since I was like 6 and immediately once I played my first in-depth video game (sigh it was Roblox) I immediately got hooked onto video games. Though I can get emotional without video games (withdrawl :( ) I can get by. Most of the time.
Why do you play video games? I really like the idea of being able to control the world instead of just looking at it *cough*television*cough* I really enjoy strategy games and games that are generally in-depth like the AOE series and X-COM and prison architect and stuff like that.


What introduced you to rimworld? My friend told me about it and it seemed very fun and after playing it I really enjoyed the complexity of it.

What is your favorite other game? Idk I don't really have a favorite though I am a really big fan of management games as well as in-depth strategy games (IT HAS TO HAVE RANDOMNESS AND MONEY IN IT)

Most embarassing game-releated story? Well I don't remember alot but in Rimworld I forgot to add a growing zone inside after I killed the one outside and everyone starved XD

What kind of breakfast cereal is the best? Idk but I like fruit loops and apple jacks the most...maybe the cinammon toast crunch is good too. But don't trust me. I barely eat cereal as is.

What do you do when people troll you in video games? Troll them back obviously... :)

Hi all, I'm Jam. I've been lurking on the forums for a couple weeks now so it was about time I introduced myself!

-How'd I find RimWorld?
Beaglerush (a top notch XCOM streamer & YouTuber) was streaming RimWorld so I checked it out and bought it on an impulse, best impulsive purchase I've ever made :D

-Favorite other games?
Pretty much any game with characters (mostly companions) that I can pour my soul into. Some examples being Knights of the Old Republic 1&2, the Mass Effect Series, and XCOM. I also like APB: Reloaded for its amount of customization, and Vindictus (my greatest source of new wallpapers.)
Too proud of these screenshots to not share a couple: http://imgur.com/a/RcF9F

-Favorite breakfast
Waffles! And Bacon! and Sausage!

-More about me
I do my fair share of reporting bugs, or just weird stuff, that I come across in various games, but I can't really apply to be a tester in good conscience (dealing with depression makes it hard to devote time to... well just about everything.)

Currently in-between jobs while I try to figure out what I wanna do with life. I've recently developed an interest in animating and might go further with it, been learning to use Blender.

I also love gifs

I usually don't like real time strategy, because the genre somehow expects the player to be everywhere at once.
I stumbled upon rimworld via a letsplay video on youtube, watched a while an thought it might be fun anyway. Fortunately I'm somehow able to manage even if it is RTS.

-What's your favorite other game?
I quite like Morrowind and Sid Meyers Alpha Centauri.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Since I'm generally not a multiplayer, I don't have any.

Hi I am Regret.

I can't remember how I found RimWorld but I've always liked strategy games. I'm not sure how to classify RimWorld other than that,
Survival-sim? Anyway, I like it.

My favourite games are Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Borderlands, Jagged Alliance, X-COM, Prison Architect, and a million others. I'm kinda addicted. I even still play The Horde (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Horde_%28video_game%29).

Most embarrassing gaming related moment? Attacking the pacifist duck-people in King Of Dragon Pass, getting my ass kicked by them while angering their friends the Minotaurs who kill my scouting group (including my leader) and soon came to raid my village. I rage-quit  :-[. (don't like losing to Donald Duck.)

I like biology, chemistry, and physics. Also philosophy.
My life-long dream is to go to Mars.

I'm just your average console gamer who made a change to PC. I like strategies games and anime, And recently got interested in programming, though I don't know how to do it, just interested in learning.

I was introduced to Rimworld by the many let's players on YouTube, and it looked like a awesome game, so I bought it and it was worth it.

My favorite games are: The whole fallout series, and civ.

The most embarrassing gaming experience has to be the time I was wiped out by filthy tribals in rimworld...

And last but certainly not least, my favorite cereal is Frosted flakes!

Hello! My name is David. I am from the U.S. - Florida, to be exact.
I love competitive gaming. Genres like RTS, mobas and fighting games are my forte. Not a fan of shooters though.
My favorite game series would probably be Final Fantasy or Metroid.

Most embarrassing gaming moment?
That is a tough one. But I would have to go with botching a raid in World of Warcraft. This was back during the first WoW expansion and raid groups were much larger. As a hunter it was my job to mark a target/player and transfer the aggro generated to the tank so it attacked the right target. I did not pay attention to the raid starting so I was not able to have the target focus the tank and the raid wiped because the target cleaved through the back line. It left 39 people wondering what happened. It also happened a second time, though that one was not my fault. The Tank moved behind a structure and with no vision of him I could not select him to cast anything. I was given the title of "The Blind Sniper" for a while after those incidents.

Post by: Bongfu on March 10, 2015, 02:51:20 PM
Hey there, I am pretty new to Rimworld. I am sad that it took until Alpha 9 for me to find this game. I am super excited about the future of this game as it is becoming one of my favourite things to play.

My life in a nutshell: I am an astrophysicist turned chef turned anthropologist. My interest are varied, I even have a minor in engineering. Currently I am working through an anthropology degree as a volunteer for a local food bank.

I like to write, paint, and create. I am very much a science fiction nerd and an aspiring science fiction writer. Who knows, I might write up some Rimworld fanfic soon. (Shameless plug to Tynan: If you want someone to contribute to writing fluff my gf and I would be happy to!)

My ultimate dreams are to get into graduate school at Lund University so I can study the ancient/medieval Scandinavian people. Odd, I know, but I have a real passion for early Scandinavia.


-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

RimWorld was a reddit accident. I saw someone post something in our of my subreddits about something that happened in game. I inquired as to what game it was and I was pleasantly directed this way. I admit, I may have had an illegal copy to try before I committed to buying the game. It was an Alpha 6 copy and even then I was hooked. Within the first two hours I spent my $30 and got a copy. Never been happier with the purchase of a pre-release game!

-What's your favorite other game?

I am a Total War nerd. Mainly because I am a history nerd, but I do like the prospects of ruling your own history changing empire.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Not video gaming, but I play some table top games. The most embarrassing (and equally awesome) moment was introducing my girlfriend into tabletop games via Battletech. In the demo game she caught on very quickly and gave me a resounding stomping. She actually taught me how to play the game the way I do now with my other Battletech friends.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Granola, honey, and yogurt


My girlfriend, when not beating me at every tabletop game I get her to play, makes costumes as a side gig. This is one she made for my theatre company's annual "Cirque du Horror". Yes, that is me in there.

Hi there!  I'm what you'd call a "late adopter" at this point I suppose :)  I've spent an entire weekend obsessing over the game and barely doing anything else.

I've made a vow to not buy into alpha or early access games until I'm happy with the existing features, rather than promised ones.  Rimworld's been on my radar for over half a year now.  A recent Let's Play video recommendation on Youtube reminded me, and after checking out the new feature list I could resist no longer.

I make my living as an artist, so when I obsess over a game like this I try to make some fan art too... just so I can claim the crazy amount of time I'm spending on games is somewhat "research and development" related :P  The last game that made me feel necessary to do this was Starbound, before this game.  I'm planning to post fan art of members of my new colonies in the story session.

Looking forward to hearing everybody's stories and learning from all the tips here.  GL HF :)

Hi my name is Max. I am a student and player (not pro player, I just love videogames).
I play Rimworld since Alpha 7 and the game is doing great. One of the best games I have played.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
RimWorld. I was looking for a game of this genre for the first time and from the few options available RimWorld was the one for me. Game style, themes, art, strategy, management, dev progress, almost everything is outstanding.

-What's your favorite other game?
Unreal Tournament 2004, C&CGeneralsZH, KillingFloor.

Well, the community here seems nice, so I figure why not actually make use of the "introduce yourself" thread for once!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Qt3 - a gaming-centric forum that has existed for quite some years by now.

-What's your favorite other game - That would probably be Mount & Blade Warband, which I've spendt...1000+ hours on over the past 5 years if I have to make a guess.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story? Ah, I think that is the above- that I've spent so much time on a game, that I could have learned a second language reasonably well in the same amount of time.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best? I'm more of a youghurt kinda guy.

I will say though, that this game has its hooks in - I'm very impressed with it so far, having come to the game a few days ago but already can see that I will have a ton of fun with it.

Anyways - thanks for all the quick replies to my temperature questions and I look forward to seeing you all on Rimworld some day!

Hi.  I'm Anti.  I have been playing these style of games and styles similar to it for around it for around 15 years, about half of my life.

I stumbled across Rimworld looking for games similar to 'Prison Architect' and 'Tropico.'

I loved Tropico 3 and 4, but 5 was absolutely horrible.  Prison Architect is fun as well, but ends up with the same issues as Rimworld, where it's designed to handle a decent population, but the game begins to lag unjustly for various reasons once your population reaches a certain size regardless of the quality of the system you use.

None the less, I think Rimworld may be the best game in this genre I've ever played as far as potential.  What it lacks in graphics it makes up with in foresight and gameplay, and I get excited following the dev updates waiting for them to hit a release.

Thank you for all your hard work.  You've made one of the best games in history, that has to make you feel a little better about it.

Hey everyone

Started playing early A8 and totally love it. Can't believe its still alpha, very enjoyable game as is but wait there is more to come!!! Woot! Love the battles, the dramas, storytelling and the epic "NOOOOOOOOO!!"s as one of your favourites dies. Well done to all involved with the game, thanks :)
Still rocking the vanilla game with the exception of EDB's UI and JulliaEllie's vien miner mods, thanks guys. Will try some others at some stage in the future.

First saw the game on youtuber "Paulsoaresjr" channel. He plays at a slow pace but is enjoyable with his role playing. Then found youtubes best rimworlder "Blitzlriegsler" and witnessed the creation of the mighty "MOO" epic series and he didn't use any turrets.

Ultimate breakfast is vanilla icecream.

Ultimate games are Xcom enemy unknown (the first one which is now called Ufo defence pfft!!), any Bauldrs gate, any Icewindale and Dayz mod on Arma2 forever (Arma3 is crap)

Hi Everybody, Happy Easter!

My name is Jason, I live in a small town in Montana USA, I'm in my forties and I've been gaming for much of that span. I own and operate a large construction company and have a wife and kids, so I don't get a lot of time to indulge in my favorite hobby. My favorite game is a really hard one to answer...Riven, the original Tomb Raider, The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, X3: Albion Prelude, all tied for first, maybe? I have a broad range of interests & genres.

I'm not sure how I stumbled across Rimworld, and I don't really know much about this particular genre, but from the video and several discussions I've read, it looks very fascinating. I'm strongly tempted to dive in. What say you, kindly Rimworld community?

Hi guys,

Thanks for that game. I just found out about it. I played it now for 1 hour.
It is just hilarious, what happens and how close you are tied to the colonists :-)

A short introduction:
I am 38 years old, happy with wife and two kids, living in Berlin/ Germany and i have enough time to play games after work and family life. If not, i just stay longer awake ;-)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

Searching on the internet after having played four hours of battlefield (i am generally not into FPS, but sometimes it's fun) and thinking about the hours and hours i have lost playing banished lately and then i found this thread, where i read about Rimworld: http://www.reddit.com/r/SurvivalGaming/comments/2ibfdf/postapocalypticscavengingcrafting_survival_games/ Then i followed the forums, watched youtube videos and read some stuff in the wiki.

Then i thought: Shut up and take my money!

-What's your favorite other game?

As an 38 years old gamer who has already played on a good old Commodore C64 i can't really tell what my "favorite other" game is. I played so many favorite games, but i think the most time consuming game in my life was (modded) Minecraft, which i played A LOT the last four years. First single player, then on public and private servers.

Minecraft is a phenomenon which i just can't describe: It's Minecraft.

My "ultimate" List in slight chronological order:

Ultima V (C64)
Pool of Radiance (C64)
Baldurs Gate (PC)
Legend of Zelda (SNES)
Actraiser (SNES)
Fallout 2 (PC)
Neverwinter Nights (PC)
Civilization II (PC)
Age of Empires (PC)
Anno 1404 (PC)
Bioshock (PC)
GTA San Andreas (PS2)
Final Fantasy 12 (PS2)
Fallout 3 (PC)
TOS: Skyrim (PS3)
Age of Wonders III (PC)
Banished (PC)
Divinity Original Sin (PC)

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

I think some of the raids on Minecraft anarchy servers, when my entire base was griefed and broken down, while i was asleep in real life, were the most embarrassing moments in my gamer life.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Croissant.

My name is Jon, I'm from Alabama in the US and have been a gamer since childhood.  I attended college for software engineering and worked on alot of smaller projects.  Really interested in building a couple mods for Rimworld after all the things I've seen from other modders. 

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
So, I was playing alot of Banished and reading forums, researching how to build a better city, and I kept seeing RimWorld mentioned.  I looked at it and honestly the character artwork was a big turn off, so I went on to something else.  I got to looking for a new game to play after building several big towns in Banished and read up on Dwarf Fortress, StarBound and several others, and I kept seeing RimWorld mentioned.  I read some more about it and when I saw it had no DRM and I could share one copy with my wife I bought it instantly.  When I saw it was like a 50MB download I was thinking, I dunno, might have been a waste of $30.   14 hours later my wife and I were passing out in front of the computers.

-What's your favorite other game?
I've had high hopes for alot of games.  I really wanted to get into WildStar.  In recent memory I can say the thing I enjoyed the most before getting into Banished was GTA5 on the PS3, I had alot of fun and was completely surprised how well the story was done.  Other than that, Modded Skyrim, if you could only have one game, that would be the one for me.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Once playing Anarchy Online with some friends, IX, we were in this dungeon and near the end of it was a little room with some vendors, a rest area I guess.  I kept saying, they are not flagged the same as a town vendor, we could attack them, maybe they would drop something good.  I said something to the effect, "I will attack and if it seems like a normal mob we all got for it."  I pushed attack and fell over dead.  Looking at the damage log, I hit it for a couple hundred damage and a reflect shield hit me for like 10,000 damage.

I just tried a peanut butter chocolate cereal, OMG!

Hi all, A_Deer here!

  I like to listen to YouTube commentary while I work. I was searching for my next "fix" when I happened across RimWorld.

  At first I judged the game too soon, I didn't watch any game play and though eeh, this game looks like crap. Well I was sorely mistaken! This game looks amazingly fun!

  My favorite games of all time to this day, X-Com Apocalypse and Fallout Tactics, in real time mode, none of that turn based crap. This reminds me of both games and looks to go into great detail!

 I'm really looking forward to buying it when I get a chance, I'm sure I will sink way too many hours into the game! Just to prove how excited I am about this game, I have been in 4 alphas and this is the first forum I have signed up for!

I was actually introduced into this game by Blitzkreigsler, I was casually scrolling through youtube in my spare time and came across Rimworld Alpha 7, so I watched that season and thought, it was such an awesome game I have to get this and here I am   :D

oooh my favourite other game was Rome 2 Total war, but now since Total War Attila was released on my 15th Bday, I was ecstatic!!!

I don't really have a MOST embarrassing gaming related story....

Post by: Havan_IronOak on April 20, 2015, 11:28:20 PM
At 58 I'm probably older than most of you. Hell! My favorite sweatshirts are probably older than a good many of you!

I've been a fan of simulation style games since I first played Sid Meier's Civilization (before they started tacking numbers on the end of it)

My favorite games have been
Civilization I II III IV & V
RailRoad Tycoon III
Everquest
Oblivion
Silent Hunter 4 & 5
Crusader Kings
Dune
Caesar III
and  on and on.

I'm mostly retired now but used to work as a systems architect in charge of designing and building a multi-national, multi-currency re-insurance accounting system so I know a bit about systems programming and testing and releases and bug fixes but most of my experience was in heavy metal (main-frames et. al.)

I did it all but toward the end I was primarily curmudgeon-in-chief.

I tend to dive in to anything new headfirst with both feet. That may sound inelegant but I learn a ton fast, make some dumb mistakes, ask a bunch of dumb questions and very quickly become quite expert in the details of the things that I'm working with.

My apologies in advance if I strike anyone as having what this game terms an "abrasive" personality. I am better than I used to be but sometimes I forget to ensure that the brain is engaged before putting the mouth in gear. Or in this case the post.

We used to have a "get to know you" game where I worked called two truths and a lie.

My go to set was...
I had a pet crow when I was young
I've twice escaped terrorist attacks
I dislike anything chocolate

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I found rimworld when i was browsing through my Youtube inbox and saw a spotlight of it from who i can't recall but after that i waited a little and kept a close eye. Now i finally bought the game and i feel like i need more time to play it now.

-What's your favorite other game?

I tend to play a lot of strategy games but to be fairly honest i tend to not really care about genre yet i do prefer games which require some form of thinking or the possibility of different tactics

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Oh dear god there you ask me something.. I feel like i made so many blunders over the years that its hard to recall. Yet for example just a day ago i accidentally walled myself in with no way out in a sandbox MMO to which i'm still waiting to find a way out...

Hi All,

I'm George. Been playing computer games since my first computer (TRS-80 with a whopping 4 color graphics card) and I was in my thirties at the time.

I was introduced to Rimworld by viewing a quill18 youtube video. I was immediately hooked.

Most of my favorite games are strategy turn based, but I have a good number of real time games also.

I think One of the best features of Rimworld is the priority assignment by character.
 
I am currently playing version 0.9.727 and enjoying it very much. Unfortunately, I deleted my original email, sent an email the help account last night to resend the email, and look forward to Alpha 10 soon.

Follow Up: Received response very quickly and now enjoying Alpha 10.

Hello all!

People call me Lui, but my name's Lluís (you can't pronounce it). I have born in Mallorca and I actually live in a very little village called Moscari. Tough I'm seriously thinking on inmigrating to Canada if I can adapt myself to cold and the darkness. I have studied Humanities (specially litterature) but I had many crazy jobs just not related with my studies.
I have been playing video games (that's how we call them here) since I coud afford a megadrive And played The "streets of rage 2", "Golden Axe", and some others. But my favourite game of all times its allways been Metal Gear Solid (the first one), It was (is) such a revolution, I coudn't belive it!
But I have to say I prefer playing strategic games like Age of empires II (maybe my second favourite game of all times).
I was introduced to Rimworld thanks to a youtuber (not sure if Eckyman or Enterellisium), and I just loved it since then. I think 30 dollars it was a bit expensive but I don't regret now).
Right now I'm trying to play on alpha 10 but it's not working too well ( Ican't install mods).

I don't know what was my most embarassing story of Rimworld , probably my ineptitude when I first installed a mod (never done it before Rimworld).

Allow me to say thanks to the moderators and Hi (again) to all you!

Hi folkscolonists,
I'm Piet Lu, 22 years old, living in the northeast of Northrhine-Westfalia, Germany (near Bielefeld, if somebody knows it) and studying computer science.

On youtube, I follow a guy called meldrian who recorded videos about RimWorld. Well yea, at first I was like "Oh, pretty nice, huh, interesting gameplay, nice graphics, I'll buy it, when its final. 30$ isn't that cheap" And after a small amount of time, (it was alpha9, that meldrian played), i was like "oh my, you have to buy it - right now." - so I bought the game last friday (alpha10f ) and don't regret it :)

I haven't bought many games, since I haven't got that much money and don't want to have too much games that I'll never play.
I have got:
- The Binding of Isaac Wrath of the Lamb
- The Binding of Isaac Rebirth
- Trackmania United Forever
- Trackmania2 Stadium
- Spacebase DF-9
- Portal 2*
- Super Hexagon
- Minetest**

*= as a steam gift, didn't buy it by myself.
**= didn't buy it, since it's for free.

I really like all of them, but play mostly the games that are underlined. (the rest only sometimes).

My most embarrassing gaming-related story? One day in 2012, I was playing TMUF for too long (from 3pm until 2am) and had to go to the hospital afterwards, because I hadn't enough oxygen in my blood anymore :D
And in 2012, I became member of 3 different Trackmaniaclans that all broke up some weeks afterwards... yeah, great :D

And I don't eat cereals at breakfast.
...
At last, I want to thank the dev team for this game, keep up that good work!

Hi, I'm a 25-year-old guy from Finland who is studying to be a wilderness guide. I didn't go through all the introductions here but I guess most people are doing inside work, usually maybe something IT-related. People in my field don't usually spend a lot of time on the computer but I like both outdoors stuff and gaming! I especially like resource management and strategy games.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I think it was Dwarf Fortress subreddit, someone mentioned it in a discussion. As it happens, Dwarf Fortress and Firefly are two of my favourite things, and something that is heavily influenced by both... Well, I was sold from the start.

-What's your favorite other game?
In terms of spent hours, either Dwarf Fortress or Crusader Kings 2. In terms of tears shed, Mass Effect series.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
When I was new to DF, I didn't at first realize that the drawbridge has an option to retract, rather than raise. Imagine my horror when I thought I was safe, only to see my drawbridge just disappear when a zombie horde invaded. I just sat there to see my dwarfs get slaughtered. Not my strongest moments.

I'm a muesli dude.

I'm Frankenbeasley (not my real name) also commonly referred to as FB or Beazles.

I'm English, male, and very much the wrong side of forty (so you buggers can get off my lawn right now). I was introduced to RW by a friend who was playing, but my association with colony games goes back all the way to The Seven Cities of Gold on the Atari 800 (in the days when floppy disks really were floppy). I do not work in IT and my technical skills are non-existent.

Other games? Too many to mention, really, but Mass Effect & Dragon Age, The Elder Scrolls titles, Mercenary, Elite, the Total War series, The Sims 1 to 3, and Football Manager have all taken too high a percentage of my life not to be mentioned. Also, for many years, any game which required me furiously to mash buttons on a Competition Pro was a guaranteed hit.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that my best mate and I stayed up for 24 hours straight in order to complete all 100 levels of 2 player Bubble Bobble on the ST.

The only truly great cereal is Grape Nuts - if your teeth are up to them.

I'm American and 31 years old. I've been playing Rimworld since December of 2014 and producing videos of my gameplay since that same time on my Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/jptplays). I don't exactly remember what introduced me to the game but I wouldn't be surprised if it was through a fellow Youtuber.

Other games that I enjoy include Minecraft, Cities: Skylines and Starbound.

No real embarrassing gaming story but I make all of my failures viewable on a daily basis. My streams typically put something odd or embarrassing on display pretty often.

I used to love Lucky Charms but as I've gotten older Frosted Flakes and Raisin Bran have taken over my cereal wheelhorse.

Other info...

I've been involved in the radio industry for more than 15 years and I just recently stopped working on-air and working from home in a support role. I am involved in social networking, graphic design, web design, voicework, commercial production, IT and various other skills that I have learned over the years. I've been involved in many on-air projects had a morning drive radio program for over 5 years.

I'm about to be a father very soon. My wife and I are expecting a son in late June.

Thanks so much for such an entertaining game and a place to have our voices heard.

Hi, I am Poh, a guy.

Who introduced?
I got to this game by a Let's Play youtuber that I followed, TheBudkai.
My Usual Games?
I usually play strategic games, but my variety varies a lot, like Dirt 3, Agarest and Mount and Blade are some to show how wide it goes I guess.
Anyway, Arma 3, From the Depths, Shogun 2, Gratuitous Space Battles 2 are some of what I am currently playing.
Also looking into getting StarDrive 2 as of now.
Most embarrassing history?
Uhmm, that would be my first attempt at a computer game at my relative's house, where I was just literally pressing the hit button no matter where I go, causing the whole house to break into laughter.
Cereal?
Well, Its been a while since i ate those, but I will have to go with Koko Crunch, if anyone knows of that...(Singapore)

Its nice to meet everyone! :D

Hi. I've been a stalker while playing this game, never posting, only reading and whatnot since A5. When the site went down recently it made me decide to register for some odd reason and voila... taa daa I'm now the newest member .

q-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

a-I was bored out of my tree with all the games I was playing at the time and a friend in vent said she'd been playing RimWorld off and on and that it was in beta and that she liked it. I thought she was joking around with me and was trying to con me into going to some weird pron web site... until she told me to youtube it, I did and saw it really was a game.

q-What's your favorite other game?

a-Emperor of the Fading Suns (really old 4x video game, though there was a pen and paper roleplaying game as well). The reason it was my favorite... because I could invade Holy Tera and blow the hell out of the church. Plus all planets were wrap arounds and there was a crazy plot with crazy factions and crazy aliens and crazy units and crazier techs. It really stuck in my mind.

q-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

a-met a "gurl" while pvp'ing in a mmorpg a few years back. Was invited to the pvp guild, met in vent, found out we both had a luv for 'cyber' and then discovered we lived in the same corner of hell (city). Decided we should meet for drinks, and voila turns out that was the single worst thing I could have done. She lied about the one most important thing to me... age. I never ran so fast in my life.

q-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

a-back in my college days i would have answered, "anything with alcohol in it" but now I would say it has to be leftover general tao chicken or frosted flakes with a few extra tablespoons of sugar.

Bio: I'm an old chaos mutant who's been playing games since before "Pong" and I luv games sooooooo much that once the police crashed into my house with guns out because a neighbor thought someone was being murdered next door. That was intense!!! It was 4ish in the morning, my window was wide open right next to where I play and I was in teamspeak while we were pvp'ing I and heard nothing until I turned my head wondering what that movement was out of the corner of my eye and nearly dumped in my pants.
I will play games until they nail my coffin shut!

Hi Everyone,

Gus from South Africa here,  great to be here and see development in action.    Network security specialist by day and sometimes by night.  Science, games, electronics and fishing in the spare time.

I was introduced to RimWorld by a friend who gave me a copy of the game thinking I might enjoy it.  Yes I know piracy is wrong but have been burnt to many times lately on kickstarter/early access games to not try before I buy.  But boy was I surprised,  I was blown away by the complexity and fun of the game and have not been able to put it down since the weekend.  I happily bought a name in game today and have already suggested the game to a few friends who will love it and buy it.

Favorite games is like asking favorite music.  It all depends on the mood I am in.  Strategies, simulations usually keep me going the longest but there is something satisfying about blasting someone away in a FPS.

Too many stories to tell of games lost due to my own stupidity,  that's how we learn though.  Kerbal Space Program I'm looking at you.

Muesli, yogurt and an apple for breakfast.  Oh and my cuppa coffee.

Regards,
Gus

My UN is, obviously, Facepunch. its a bit of a story from almost a decade ago about how it happened. I'm 14, 15 in July, been here and there on/off.

-What introduced you to RimWorld?:
 Well, in the group I play ArmA with, the medic, Obie (He's a SWAT medic for a living), was taking us through the TCCC handbook on medic training day, and suddenly he yelled out "Oh, Jesus! I shot shot that guys lungs out!" and then "That one looks perfect for harvesting organs from!". He was, of course, talking about Rimworld.
-What's your favorite other game?:
 ArmA. All the way.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?:
 In ArmA, I was flying a helo, a Huron instead of my usual pawnee. So, I was doing stunts meant for the much more maneuverable Pawnee. I missed the ground by about half a foot, dove under some powerlines, and pulled my nose up sharp. The pawnee flew in behind me, slammed into me before he could react, and killed 24 people. Our combined wrecks stayed in the air just long enough for our fixed-wing CAS pilot trainee to join in and hit our demolished vehicles. All 3 of our twisted wrecks hit an infantry squad and killed another 6 people. Thats like, the whole damn server. And it was my fault. That was pretty embarassing.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?:
 Sugar crisps.

Splattercat's Let's play series of videos where he featured Rimworld. I was looking for something similar to Dungeon of the Endless with more depth and this game seems to fit.

(Speaking of which, if anyone happens to know the name of the seed and starting location Splatter cat used for his videos I'd love to find out.)

As for this type of game, I've always enjoyed gameplay or fancy AAA graphics, especially when the depth/length of play often exceeds those of triple A titles.
-What's your favorite other game?

Doorkickers is another fav of mine when it comes to Indie games, although Skyrim and Fallout New Vegas are the ones I have the most hours in so far (a couple thousand hours in each, easy.)

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
The time I was showing several Oblivion off to a friend of mine and generally running around having my character sow chaos and mayhem by placing bounties on hapless NPC civilians and pretty much turning the market into one giant brawl sprawl and killing essential NPC's by setting them to non essential just to prove it was possible. It  was great fun, right up until I quick saved over my main campaign progress.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Honey almond crunch hot oatmeal is my current fav, although cap'n crunch of Fruity Pebbels are good for those mornings I need to start with a sugar rush.

Hi, just got this today, and haven't played it at all (finished work a little while ago and am exhausted, so bed time). I'll check out some YouTube walkthroughs at work tomorrow and have a go then.

I'm an old fart from Sydney, a Security supervisor by trade. I enjoy many types of games, and colony building is one of them. I suspect I'll become addicted to this pretty quickly.

My name is MeowRailroad.
I found out about RimWorld from a friend.
My other favorite game is Trainz. (By N3V Games)
I don't know an embarrassing story, but sometimes in Trainz I spend 10 minutes trying to do something to something else with the wrong tool. (Track and splines have similar tools.)
"Breakfast Cereal" is quite a relative term.

On the first-time caller line, we have...Nick calling in from Idaho!  Welcome Nick, you're on the air...

Hi everybody!

Longtime listener, first time caller.  Figured it was about time for me to jump into the conversation(s).

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I seem to recall I was just browsing about on Kickstarter looking for interesting projects to back, and this one jumped out at me.  This was probably in part because I'm a huge SPAAACCCEEE guy and the idea of a game based on surviving on a hardscrabble world at the periphery of inhabited space sounded neat.

-What's your favorite other game?

Ooh... Probably Half-Life 2 I guess?

It's kind of hard to say, I don't really rank games in some sort of sequential order from most-favorite-ist to least-favorite-ist so much as games cluster together in my mind along a bell curve with very few falling onto either the "OMG AWESOME!!1!!~!" or the "What a pile of crap" ends of the spectrum with probably about some 80 percent of everything landing in the broad "It was alright" middle area.

So with that in mind a few other examples of the "OMG AWESOME!!1!!~!" outlier range include, but are not limited to:

-Mass Effect 1
-Final Fantasy 6
-Homeworld
-Fallout New Vegas
-RimWorld  :P
-Minecraft

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Nothing specific I can pin down off hand, but in general the whole experience of playing Ultima Online circa 1997 as a 10 year old was pretty shameful taken altogether.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

I...don't eat cereal, sorry.

Honestly the idea of someone sitting with a bowl of milk that has little starchy...things going soggy in it while the someone in question slurpity-slurps this swill down kind of makes me queasy just thinking about it.

That's just one of my things I guess.

Anyway to cap things off I don't have any silly images, but here's one of my favorite SPAAACCCEEE pieces:

PS, for those who are interested my real life job is a machinist.

It's well worth the purchase, $30 might seem like a bit much, but you'll easily get 100+ hours of game play out of RW, about ten times that if you use some of the available mods, (such as Prepare Carefully) and the community really is quite friendly.

The game also has the advantage of being produced by a single person, so feedback and dev input is regular and without all the legalese B.S filtering and PR fiascos you see from other EA titles. (I'm looking at you Starforge!)

Be warned though, this game can easily eat up an afternoon (or weekend) unexpectedly, and sitting down to play "for just an hour" before bed, can unintentionally continue until sunrise the following morning. (Time flies when immersed in Rim World, be warned.  :-* )

Hi, my name's Tony but I go by AJ, I'm a 53 yr old grey gamer...

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I was watching a guy called Sacriel stream Rimworld on Twitch and I thought wtf is this? I'm a DayZ SA or Arma 3 type guy really and he used to stream mainly DayZ at the time. Anyway, something about the way he talked about it tweaked my interest, he was so passionate about it I decided to stick around and watch. Five hours later I opened another tab and went the Rimworld page and bought the game, I've been addicted ever since, that was about three months ago.

-What's your favorite other game?
DayZ SA, Arma 3, Skyrim (heavily modded) Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas...

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Too many in DayZ to mention.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Full English for me... Don't do cereal :-)

Hello, I'm a guy from somewhere and I'm 18 years old and I came to ask about the modability of the game. :p I also like drawing, and I was thinking about offering my humble services to the modding community of this game since I'm bored most of the time.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I was reading some news about the new condition system that DCFedor (The creator of NEOScavenger) was writing and I saw a comment about rimworld.

-What's your favorite other game?
I have many favorite games, but the ones I can think of are FasterThanLight, Dragonfall, NEOScavenger and maybe Rimworld in the future, when it comes to steam.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
N/A!

Basics of Me:
Hi! I'm a twenty-something year old in New Zealand, studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering in University. I should be working on my exam studies, but everyone needs downtime. I enjoy being useful on the forum by reporting bugs.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I tried Dwarf Fortress a few years ago, and once I got past the learning curve I loved it for the detailed characters and stories that emerged. Sometime later I came across the RimWorld KickStarter and I backed it (still haven't done my Pirate King content).
Now I play it, on and off. Now is one of my "on" periods, in the midst of exams.

-What's your favorite other game?
Really quite hard to say. I used to play so many. I suppose modded Minecraft is a solid candidate, for number of hours played. Then X-Com.


-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I don't have any good RimWorld ones sorry. But I'm sure I'll have some soon.

Hello everyone out there! It is a distinct honor and a privilege for me to be a part of this community. I heard about Rimworld on the steam forums, someone mentioned this title in a thread discussing the Spacebase DF9 debacle and I Googled it immediately. I bought it the same day and haven't looked back. I've found my niche. I love games that tell stories like this. I love Dwarf Fortress, but let's be honest, as awesome as it is, it isn't exactly relaxing to sit down and play a game with that level of depth and complexity. I love Gnomoria too, but it just a little too watered down. Rimworld, however, is at the exact perfect median point between the two games with some of its own wonderful complexities. Tynan, I hope you won't see this as me simply comparing the two games to your masterpiece. Rimworld astounds and mystifies me. I get bored with games within a matter of a dozen hours or so, but Rimworld continually captivates me. Even two or three alphas ago, when I first purchased the game, I felt as though you could have just decided the game is complete any day and I would be more than satisfied. With all the sincerity I could possibly muster, thank you! Thank you so very much for creating this master work.

Hey. Ashton Black here. I heard about this game from EnterElysium's youtube stream. Looked good, so I thought I'd spring for the $30.
An excellent idea fairly well done and coming along nicely!
I did a play through, enjoyed it and then discovered all the mods... wow. Really really fine work by the community there.

Anyway, keep it up and I'll keep playing!

Basics Info:

I am a computer nerd currently pursuing a degree in computer science. I work as a Jr. Network Admin while I attend school as well as stream 20-40 hours a week. I love games and game design and was actually going into a game design program (for art) before I switched to be a code monkey xD I love creating and love problem solving and will probably be on the forums helping to troubleshoot or post concept art!

-What introduced me to RimWorld? I saw one of the people I follow on twitch playing and decided right away this was a game I could sink my life into. I did not watch more than 2 or so minutes so I could stream a blind play through of the game!

-What's your favorite other game? This is a hard choice. I love castlevania from my childhood. Metro last light took me in for a while. Rust is a current addiction of mine. Then of course Pokemon is always a favorite...Just to many to chose from. Fable, however, has a special place in my heart. It was a fantastic world, something new when it came out. I remember putting a ton of hours into this game just to have it glitch at the very last part of the game...
-Most embarrassing gaming-relayed story? I fail alot...one of the most recent ones that was seen by a handful of people would be from CS:GO. 1v2...was scoping and got knifed x.x

Hello!

I was sent to one of the rimworlds after seeing someone stream the game about a week ago. I didn't even watch long enough to learn anything, so when I started playing two days ago, I came in pretty much completely fresh, and of course, went straight into the Challenge difficulty without giving any other a try. Now the last thing I've learned is that my base could really use a choke point for defense, and that I should probably prepare for those Scythers!

Last night I tried an overhaul modpack but it seems mods still lack the same quality in their gameplay content that the core game has. There were, however, some really nice quality-of-life mods that I'll probably install separately. All that prolonging of the gameplay by introducing a crazy number of tech tiers is so overdone in other games that I didn't find that aspect enjoyable, so it's back to vanilla for now.

I'll be streaming on Twitch (http://www.twitch.tv/a1win) every now and then, although most likely without voiced commentary. Hop in and say hi!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
 Well, AOEII(Age of Empires II to the heathen uninitiated) :D. I was always rather depressed at the end when I would leave my either glorious metropolis with smoke on the horizon, or my smoking ruin with someone's metropolis on the horizon, because it ended.

So I started on some city builders a few years ago, but they were all so impersonal and your peasants so much chaff to be used for whimsy! I wanted connection and pain on losing my citizens and I guess that's when I found Rimworld.


-What's your favorite other game?
I already told all you heathens! However, I can also deal with Planetside 2, Space Engineers, Rust and whatever else might take my fancy.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I once played Rust and tried to be a friendly guy. Say hi, don't kill them and invite them over for dinner... The pain and scars are real. I have also played vanilla minecraft for many hours. Other than that I try to do the scarring. Like blackmailing opponents in diplo AOEII matches.

Got into Dwarf Fortress after reading peoples stories (especially [url]http://lparchive.org/Dwarf-Fortress-Boatmurdered/ URL] ) After clicking around for "games like Dwarf Fortress I stumbled upon the RimWorld kickstarter and backed it pretty early on. Been pretty much playing each update religiously, bowled over with how much content has been updated in the last 2 years.

Fave other game? depends on what we're on about to be honest.
Mechanical fun? GodHand
Story? Legacy of Kain series
Something to grind countless hours on? Monster Hunter 4U

Most embarassing game related story?
Dated a girl for 2 weeks, I go over to her house and she's playing the Sims, she made a sim of me and her, happily married with 2 kids.  Warning signals from there.

A youtuber I follow made a few videos (about a year ago) of the game, and I found it intensely interesting. Not having a job then, I couldn't buy it, and I quickly forgot about it. I rediscovered it a few months ago, and after reading some reviews, I decided it was The Game For Me

Hello, just wanted to pop in and share my excitement to play this game. This is me trying to support the developer a little and hope that this gets to steam and is well received.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've enjoyed management and management/survival style game for a long time, I have played a few similar games and enjoyed the complexity and look of this game when I saw it on quill18's youtube channel.

-What's your favorite other game?
I currently have 1028 games on Steam and 584 on GoG, so take your pick. The game I've recently sunk the most time into would probably be World of Tanks, MMO arcade tank game, but i've been wanting to play more single player again.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Just about every point and click game where i spend 30 minutes just clicking every pixel on the screen cause i can't figure out how to progress.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Pop-tarts, because it's better than cereal.

My name is Jupiter, I'm 28yrs old (29 in a few months) hailing from Southern Ontario, Canada.  I am mostly a huge forum lurker, so I can't imagine I'll do much posting...  this is only my third post and I registered at the beginning of July.  I live alone, with just my tiny sausage dog Cosmodius Maximus.  I've been a gamer since I was old enough to hold a controller (starting with super mario and duck hunt back when I was three).

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Well, I've been a big fan of this style of games for a LONG time (sandbox/survival games), but I only heard about rimworld mid June 2015 via a youtuber (RyconRoleplays).  After watching several of his videos, I immediately knew I HAD to purchase Rimworld.  And I definitely do not regret my choice!

-What's your favorite other game?
I have LOTS of favorites, but I'll only put a list of the best of the best.  Project Zomboid is a big one (I have played about 150 hours since I bought it earlier in 2015), I also love Fallout (New Vegas is my favorite), Skyrim, The Sims (I play 4 now, but I have played them all), Banished, Half-Life 2, Mass Effect, Dawn of Discovery, Portal, The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Rock Band 2, Alien Isolation...  Minecraft used to be a huge one for me, but after running into some issues hosting games, I haven't been able to play anymore (single player is just not the same for me now).  Oh, and Terraria!

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Not really embarrassing, more like funny.  I was playing Minecraft with a friend of mine who was new to the game, and she was lost down a ravine...  I heroically leaped into a ravine to save her from a spider attack...  only it was the wrong ravine.  :P  Then I got lost trying to get out and she had come rescue ME.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Frosted mini wheats :P  I like when they get soggy from the milk.

Here's a picture, not of me but of my weenie dog!

MindFruitNinja here! I'm 22yr old guy and I deal with video games since 9. I love planning and sometimes even developing them; ideas constantly come to my mind. Yeah, one day I'd like to read Tynan's book too.

I was introduced to Rimworld by a friend, almost solely by accident. When after some months, I gained enough "mood" to download it, I was fascinated, I didn't even do anything else but playing and playing for days consecutively! Tynan, you literally stole weeks from my life :P not that you wouldn't deserve, you bastard! :3

My lifetime favourite games are Doom (do you have an idea, how active and devoted modding community it has?!) and Deus Ex. Speaking of which:
-What's your favorite other game?
Deus Ex.
I really love you for this, Tynan!

I do creative and semi-creative things in my free time; I'm still looking for the best way to express my ideas, but writing and video games are the most likely choices. There'd be nice to become a full-time developer one day; that's my most important aim currently.

I rarely eat cereal, though I love it! My favourite is food is spaghetti, however :P I also love things like heavy metal, anime, sciene and occasionally, IT business world.

I had some embarassig stories, but one of the most memorable was the nude cloudwatching blonde hottie, about who I even wrote a shorter story. (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=15898.0)

Hi!

My Name is Maciek (Maciej officially) i'm 17 and i come from Poland but live in Holland 7 years already.
I play games since my father bought a computer and big fat monitor and we've got then internet at home. Because my father was into gaming itself i always watched him playing games like Warcraft II or Starcraft 1 and then got into these games myself. I've played then games like Sims 1 and 2 too and by that time we've moved to Holland when i was nearly 10. My "game experience" comes more from older games like Spellforce The Order of Dawn and it's expansions. Silent Storm, Warcraft II - III, Original War (I love it!) and Actually all generations of Sims because i like simulation games pretty much and building houses. I've played all kinds of games even online FPS like Combat Arms for a year or RPG like Metin for 1 year and 6 months. I always sucked at games where the time was the most needed thing, like in Starcraft 1 and 2 because i always liked to build kind of nice bases, so i only played the campaing and tried a little bit of online but lost like 10 times in a row and said that it's just not for me.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

Looking for such game actually... i always looked for a game where you're supposed to build an colony or town of not that high number of poeple and make it bigger by the time and "support" them, that way i've played games like Banished but there were no fights which sucked a little and after having all the buildings and no "purpose" in the game i left it because there was no challenge. Some time later i've bought Project Zomboid which i still find nice as an survival game but i've got lucky and every little and first/second small "scratch" got me infected so after 30 times i said "F*** it" (I've played on the survival mode maybe that's why.. it is default thought..) and looked for something different. Prison Architect looked interesting but after playing it i've seen that i didn't get that much of control what my poeple did and sometimes the game was a little bit confusing so after that i couldn't find anything that looked good to me because i'm not one of the hardcore gamers who buy Battlefield and such.. (Since i suck at FPS games expect Combat Arms mentioned above) and the only good game was Don't starve that i've played for like 6 months or longer which didn't hid that many secrets from me after a while and became boring too, then i heard of Rimworld after looking for Simulation Colony games because i liked Space Colony so much i looked in that kind of genre and found it. I've looked at some Youtube gameplays of it before buying it and actually all the information went into my brain so after weeks of watching videos about it i decided to buy it and so started my history with it (Now i'm on my second Colony that still exists for 5 years and 7 months, yeah!)

-What's your favorite other game?

Hard one because i have many, my top 10 would be: Original War, Spellforce 1 (All expansions), Don't Starve, Warcraft III, Starcraft I and II (Only Campaign, plot is awesome), Silent Storm + Sentinels, The Elder Scrolls Oblivion + Skyrim (Oblivion first!) and Warhammer 40K the first one because the second one was way too boring and short. And a Nice place for Diablo 3 should be existing too!

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

I don't know if i have one... well i just suck at online games maybe let's say that as a whole, i always was behind if we talked about gear and couldn't pvp with... all of the poeple? Yeah i was more chatting person tham a really player or someone who loves pvp and gear.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

I love most kinds of Musli with Greek Yogurt and some honey, does that count?

Hello there.

My name's Raphaël. I live in France, well, more exactly on the Réunion Island, east of Madagascar. I'm 23 and I work in an Airline named Air Austral, making flight plans and stuff like that, to be short. As you can guess, I'm part aircraft nerd, part videogames nerd. Sci-fi games had always been the ones I loved the most, strategy being one of the genre (dunno if it's called like that) I'm the more familiar with so it was natural for me to begin to play Rimworld.

Quote
What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

First time I saw Rimworld was a friend of mine playing it. First impression was "It looks like prison architecht but what is happening right there?". Then I saw a fight, body being dragged, and I thought, this game is made for me. A lot of cannibalism (in game of course) later, I still think the same! Since then I introduced a lot of my friends to this game.

Quote
Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

My most embarassing story... Well, some times ago we were playing the Sims with some friends, like, with the same beginning character, to see who did the best with him. That's the day I discovered that, yes, you can have a total party wipe in the Sims. I remembered laughing hard because all of them died for stupid reasons besides one, then he got killed by a meteor falling on him. Now that I think of it, it's nothing compared to RimWorld.. That's why I love it so much!

Quote
What's your favorite other game?

Hmm, hard one. Well, I did play World of Warcraft when I was younger. Played it for years, actually. I remember that this game was pure gold, emphasis on "was". After Burning Crusade, it was just not the same anymore.
Besides that, my favorite is the Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic series. These games are just godlike and I get the chills everytime freaking time I start a new game, even if I know every line of it by heart. They are just that good to me.

What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Well, I don't eat cereals anymore, only coffee and orange juice. But there was this one brand with a mad scientist of it, the cereals themselves had little apple crisps on them. They were delicious but I can't seem to find any so whatever.


Anyway, I'm happy to register here. Last time I did that was like 7 years ago but I couldn't resist to come here after all of this anonymous lurking that I did. So hello everyone! :)

Final Fantasy 14 and anything in the Total War series, even Rome 2 now they fixed it.

I'm Limdood, 31, and gaming is one of my two main hobbies (the other being medieval recreation competitive armored combat.  Yes, for real.).

I found rimworld after looking for a good, challenging survival game and stumbled across 7 days to die.  While playing that i stumbled across a forum post for that game talking about ventilation of underground bases, and one of the replies mentioned he wished it were implemented like Rimworld.  So i checked out the game, and was hooked at the intro video (even considering most alpha, early access, or "lets see how this game is" games i buy are 15$ and this was 30$).  Been playing since, and still enjoy it.

Favorite other game:
I've played it all.
7 days to die, as i stated above, is a fun FPS survival builder
I play D&D with buddies once a week, so enjoy the RPG genre, though I haven't found anything to wow me lately.
I also play Blood Bowl (and now Blood Bowl 2) to satisfy my competitive itch.  Though i've HORRIBLY neglected that game since discovering Rimworld (curse you Tynan)
Lastly, i play Clash of Clans.

Embarrassing gaming stories?  Loads of them...Can't really recall one in particular that wouldn't take a huge story to explain, so I'll spare you all the novel.  Suffice to say i learn very well from mistakes...and i've learned a LOT.

Depending on mood, Raisin Nut Bran, Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch, or Honey Nut Chex are the best.

Hi!
I'm Simon. I'm 34 and I'm french (So you can guess I'll soon suggest a surrender button). I'm a screenwriter for television. Before finding this joyfull career I studied physics, I got a  phd. I think about game design for a long time. I'd like to participate as much as I can, but my coding skills are not enough to become a game designer. I don't even know if I can learn to mod.

I found Rimworld looking for independent videogames. As I often do, I watched several gameplay videos, trying to resist the urge to buy the game... but this time I didn't succeed. And I can say I'm happy I yielded to temptation!
I find Rimworld astonishing. The amount of work is impressive and more important, it's really aimed in the good direction, straight to greatness. I love the mood system, the deep simulation of so many aspects. I think the storytelling IA is a great idea.

I can't say it's my other favorite game but I played “The fourth coming” for 3 years in spite of its lousy gameplay and graphics because it was true roleplaying. I was in character all the time, I think it helped me becoming a screenwriter. Never found a mmorpg with so much roleplay.
I also like to unwind on League of legend... it's good to do a little sports, you know :)

I'll name another game though, “This war of mine” it's not just a great game, I think Rimworld could really benefits from this inspiration to create strong and touching stories. In fact I'll try to make suggestion in this direction, more drama, more story.

Most embarrassing gaming story... My nieces and nephew (4, 8 and 10) wanted to play a videogame. I made them play Limbo, cause you knows, it's a plateform game. I didn't thought the giant spiders tearing little boys' head off was  terrifying at all. They loved it... each time they see me they want to play again. But I can't help to think  they're a little traumatized now.

The best kind of breakfast cereal? The one that stay in its box and I let me have a proper breakfast.

Hello

I'm valleo and i'm 29 years old.
I have to say that i'm french, so maybe i don't write english quite well (sorry about that).

 - What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

First, I tried Dwarf Fortress (can't remeber how I discovered it), but the graphics were a little bit too minimalists for me. However, I loved the concept. So I looked for similar games, and I found a top 10 of the best Dwarf Fortress-likes. Of course, Rimworld was ranked first (or maybe second. I Can't remember, that was a long time ago). So I watched a few let's play, and I was convinced. I'm playing to Rimworld since May 2015.

 -What's your favorite other game?
The Mass Effect Trilogy. (yes, I love SF).

 -Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Last year, I took part in a Pokémon tournament (a little one), and I have been beaten by a teenage girl with braces. She looked like Stan's sister (in South Park). When you're almost 30, it's embarassing...

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

Rimworld has been on my radar for quite some time and I finally caved and picked it up.  I mostly play sim/management type games.  I think I was orignally introduced to this type of game with something text based or maybe Populous(Yes, I'm old). 


What's your favorite other game?

I can't say there is one game that's my favorite.  I also enjoy open ended roguelike/survival type stuff.  I'm anxiously awaiting for the new update for 7 Days to Die.

I'll just say that I've learned that turning autosave off in any game is a bad idea.

Well hey there everybody, I'm Hunter, but my username is Sonicwolf, you can call me Sonic or Wolf or whatever you please. I'm really in love with Rimworld and I guess since the ChuckleFish forums have been down for like 4 days I've decided to post here as a side-community, although I'm sure you guys will suck me into your little community, for reference I've got like 1,100 messages on the CF forums.
I'm good at writing, coming up with creative ideas, I'm weird and I'm not sure how to describe it other than that.
Oh I like to draw, and not the kind of I like to draw which is basically scribbling, I don't mean to be cocky but I'm a decent artist, I find it a little difficult to do Rimworld fan art but hey that won't stop me.
Above all else? I want to get involved in this community because I want to make a difference, if I can chisel an idea into these forums that strikes Tynan's attention and makes him want to implement it then I've done my duty. I like to join communities for games generally in hopes that somebody in a position of power over the game's future will see what the hell I'm getting at, which would be awesome. Seeming as how I can't do much for making games myself or even modding, I can just write, draw, and come up with good ideas(which yes I know is like half of game development already but I can't program for shit. Literally).

Hi there!

I'm 31 and I come from germany.
I was googling for planetary colonization games (old and new ones) and stumbled accross a Rimworld introduction video on youtube.
It needed some weeks to made up my mind, but somehow the game had left an impression on me.
So I eventually bought the game after watching some Let's Plays and I didn't reget it. ^^

Aside from Rimworld I also (still) play Diablo III, Space Engineers, Kerbal Space Program and a number of more and less actual single player shooters
which I not yet finished.

But currently I'm playing Rimworld for like 16/7 during my holidays.
Sad thing you sometimes need to buy food or have to clean your apartment.
What a distraction from the really important things....  ;D

My names Cole, and my favorite cereal has to be Mini Wheats (bushels of wheat with sugar on them). I like rocky road ice cream and vanilla cake.
- What introduced you to Rimworld?
I love these types of games, I've played Factorio and Prison Architect for countless hours, and while I was watching a stream someone mentioned I'd probably like Rimworld. The streamer got it, and we spent a few hours being incredibly confused. I kept playing, and now I'm kind of glad there isn't an hour counter for Rimworld.
- Favorite Games?
As I mentioned earlier, in no particular order my top 3 have to be Rimworld, Factorio, and Prison Architect, maybe GTA IV if I would play more on console.
- Most Embarrassing Gaming Moment?
Probably when I messaged a developer for about 2 weeks because I was playtesting for him and I couldn't run the game, turned out I forgot to extract the files.
Btw, for the past year and a half I didn't know this forum was a thing. Tynan posted on the subreddit so I thought that was the main gathering area for everyone who played this.

Hi, Paul from the netherlands here. I'm from 1966 and love all kinds of games. Mostly RPG adventure / fantasy / sci fi etc.
I was introduced to RimWorld by cohhCarnage's twitch stream in chat.
favorite games are depending on my mood.
I look mostly for games to play with one buddy. (mmo or coop) I don't like it when i need to be real good at something to progress. For me there has to be an investment in time. My skills in (mostly mmo) will never become any better.
all my online games are embarrising. doesn't stop me though. Bosses do. sadly...
now onward! to rimworld :)

I am an older player who loves games.  A recent injury has kept me away from my computer, but I had the loan of a notebook to keep up on the game news.  No playing, but  watching.  I discovered let's plays, and eventually found Rimworld.  I love this game.  Watching it and playing it (a gift from my kids).  Therapy! 
I like resource management games and rpg's best.  Oatmeal is the best breakfast cereal.
Don't anyone give up on this game.  This is a wonderful game.

I first found out about Rimworld from paulsauresjr on Youtube when he began a Letsplay for Alpha 12 (give credit where credit is due). :)

So, bought into it (didn't get any hack jobs, because...well, they're hack jobs) and have stumbled through a bit.  On my second colony now and figuring out things and a few tricks.

I have been a "gamer" for ages from back in the '70's (no, not the show) when it began with board games, but quickly got into the video variety with the proliferation of computers.  Yes, I'm from back when that was an realized event, and no, I didn't use a time machine or wormhole.  I remember when the original Star Trek episodes were new and people scoffed at automatically opening doors and phones that weren't plugged in.  I think the only things we have to do is teleports and warp drive, but don't hold me to that. :)

One thing I am not is an "avid gamer", which is to say someone that devotes most (or at least a large portion) of his income to gaming.  Either through the system, the connection or even the research.  I'm not going to spend hundreds of dollars for a few hours of play, or even a significant amount of time researching a game just to figure out the quintessential maximum benefit/cost ratio.

That's why I've always enjoyed a game that's not only affordable, but that you don't have to devote tons of study just to be a mediocre level.  Rimworld, as I have pretty much discovered, seems to fall in that area.  So what if the crops aren't ripe yet, go hunt a couple animals.  Rooms aren't the right size? Extend the walls and renovate.  Defensive guns drain all your power?  Install a power switch and turn them on only when needed.  One of your colonists lost a lung during a firefight?  Harvest one from a prisoner (or more....or buy one) and get your people back up to speed.

The game is simple enough, but very complex without getting overwhelming.....except...for...those...damn...firestorms...gah!!!  lol

Yo!

I'm pumped about writing on here.

This game is a piece of art. I'm 28 years old and i've been gaming since i can remember, and there's many games i love but only a few have made the kind of impression Rimworld has.

I often think about how we humans, at least for the time being, are stuck, there's no new land to colonize, no room for something new, no unexplored land to build a home of my own, and it saddens me that i'll never see such a thing, which i think goes against our nature, and the nature of life itself.

And so i found myself playing this game and being able to tailor the experience it provides to this very personal and deep yearning of mine, and it feels amazing i get completely absorbed by it.

-I found about it while actively looking for basebuilding games on youtube. And for the style, no idea, back when i played strategy games, aoe, warcraft, tzar, ee, etc rather than play campaing or matches i would just build huge cities, in the map editor, or ingame itself that would be my first basebuilding experiences i guess.

-My favourite game is Suikoden 2. Which funnily enough Rimworld reminds me of it a little bit. One fo my favourites things to do in Suikoden was to build up ur base/castle, and fill it with the people u kept rectruiting, and many had different functions within it which sums up what i do in Rimworld, making big bases, with tons of people in them (randy random masterace) and watching it grow and be alive. That feeling of building something in this new, hostile enviroment and thriving on it, it's just great.

-Most embarrasing huh? prob some catastrophic fail while playing some 2h giant with friends on some of the magic dotp games, Feelsbadman.

-Best ceral would be chocolated rice, u let it rest on the milk until it becomes sort of a hot damp mesh and then ur mouth orgasms a bit.

I'm not used to forums so i don't know if the image will show but that's my sweet ice sheets base, i've put a ton of time into it, like 5 ingame years i think.

Oi. I'm 19 years old, live in Corsica and HATE rainy weather.


- I cannot recall what introduced me to Rimworld. Although it took me some time to finally try it, and eventually getting my hands on it was a positive experience.

- Best game evaaar? Hard to say. Torn between the Mass Effect or the Witcher trilogy. Great universes for both of them, and full of subplots, ressources, secondary stories. Great lore in general.

- In Stalker: Shadow of Tchernobyl I once killed every last person in the Duty base to sell their armors/weapons/supplies to the local bartender in order to buy an exoskeleton just to find out that I needed even more money. Ugh.

Oh and Kellogg's Smacks are the best breakfast cereal hands down.

first of all > sorry for my english.

name is gaiska, 26 from Austria. Buyed this ... absolutly extraordinary game 1 year ago after i had much fun with prison architect. Someone told me then i should look at Rimworld because of the similar graphic style and my faible to firefly. first hours i was shocked because of the complexity and the raiders who killed my first colonist groups every time. i changed the difficulty to phoebe chillout and it works. ok i thought it would work now... i build defense weapons at start > so now i had a very effective defense structure but not enough food and my colonists died again. started new a bit pissed but more motivated because i learned every time more about the game and saw the potential.

then my 4 or 5 colony worked perfect for me so i researched almost all of the possibilitys. after hundrets of hours of playing time i downloaded much mods and started again 3 days ago. stunned again.

wanna say thank you for this game.

Like colony-manager but RimWorld is more complex than other games of the same genre and I like Firefly too.

I've played so many games that enjoy me, choosing one is difficult.

Recently I loved The Witcher 3.

-My other favorite games include "Project Zomboid," "Prison Architect," and "American Truck Simulator," depending on what kind of mood I'm in.

Hey, I'm Nic from New Zealand, I don't normally post on forums and stuff but thought I would say hi because I really like this game and wanna give some mad props to the creator. This is by far the best experience I've ever had backing a kickstarter or other indie game, consistent major updates, cool community and just all round great game :D

-Found out about Rimworld right at the start while browsing around Kickstarter, i'd played some dwarf fortress before but it was kinda overly complicated nd the ascii graphics didn't help. Rimworld just seemed like a better alternative and it was probably the first or second game I backed on there.

-Absolutely love the civilization games: best is "Alpha Centauri", followed by civ 3, 5, 4. Also a bit of other stuff, Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect, Don't Starve, Factorio (Another awesome Kickstarter game), FTL.

-Got 2 Embarrassing stories: 1. Had dream about minecraft *shudder*. 2. Did a 24 hour DayZ session with some friends and after we had basically become the kings of the entire map I fell off a tower and died, lost all my gear and pretty much ended up being the cause for everyone going to sleep.

-Fave breakfast is probably a mix of Milo Cereal and Weet-bix, with plenty of yoghurt

I actually saw Youtuber Dslyecxi get his outpost overrun by squirrels. Which i found very amusing, so i knew i had to buy the game just for the squirrels.

I'm new here, but not new in Rimworld. I'm 24 yo. I'm french but play the game in english because sometimes, on french language, there's strange symbols who appear in the game. But, in fact, I play all game in English, it help me a lot to improve my english. I work with kids and i'm in a theater troupe. I hope to leave the work with kids to be in full time and paid as a comedian. I really love music, no day without. I play trumpet too.

- What introduced you to rimworld ?

Something like Hawksquill post : internet search for "game like dwarf fortress but not a pain to my eyes."

- Favorite other game ?

"Wololo ! Wololo !" <That's AgeOfEmpire (my first game on pc). And The Lemmings (on Amiga 2000), my very first game. The Witcher's saga. And the Total War. I love RPG, strategy games and management game (but not really the tycoon stuff).

- Most embarrassing gaming-related story ?

 I put a lot of traps in Skyrim (modded), for the enemies, and I just...fell into all of them when I was trying to reach a chest that I didn't see before... and it was empty.
And all those time I shot my team on deathmatch game (like TF2) because I don't remember my team color, or don't recognize the armor. And I'm like : "Oh no ! no ! Not again ! I want to leave the game now !  :-[ "

Nice to see so many new faces to the forums, A13 is arguably the best build yet from what I've heard, and what little I've played of it. (still waiting for my favorite mods to be updated.)

One of the threads you'll fine really helpful is the "Things I wish I'd known sooner" Thread, it covers some of the neat things you wouldn't probably figure out initially, and can save you a lot of pain and time along the way.

Hi!

I'm dave (davebluedevil). I'm an avid gamer. Right now I've been wetting my toes in RimWorld A13 after having played hundreds of hours in things like Terraria, Modded Minecraft (FTB), Civ, Banished, and more.

Right now I'm alternating between Squad, a FPS tactical milsim, and RimWorld. I try to stream both on Twitch: http://www.twitch.com/davebluedevil/ (http://www.twitch.com/davebluedevil/).

Schedule for RimWorld is M/F for a few hours in the afternoons PST and any other moment after 8pm PST that I can manage. Right now I've got a Toxic Fallout headed into about day 7 and an entire map of dead animals to collect as the mood of my colonists drops. My last playthrough ended ignominiously to a herd(?) of alphabeavers that I aggro'd a bit before I was adequately prepared.

Every time I die and start over I do a little better at the beginning, but I also up the difficulty to keep this even.

I am Sikee (Simon) and I have just started to play and learn Rimworld.

I have watched from when the game first released but now feel it is time to take the plunge and begin playing.

Elsewhere on forums, I am a Pipped member of GTA Forums, so I aim to become a regular contributor here as well.

I also have ideas for some useful mods to expand gameplay, yet I have little experience of actual modding, yet I am willing to learn, so I should start with some tutorials.

Hope to see you all around.

I want to learn how to mod, and this is the game I want to start with.

Introduction ? Why did i not see that before O.o.

Hi I'm Mathieu, French Canadian Computer technician (Still in school, but that's a secret :D), and i'm a huge fan of not being bored.

I Found Rimworld on a game downloading site (Illegal but the best way to find good games), and after playing it for a few hours i fell in love whit it and buyed it not long after (Barely two month later :D).

I Love modding games (Mainly EU4 and CK2), im a huge RPG, Strategy and Simulation games fans, playing mainly Gnomoria and EU4, also evidently this wonderful game of Rimworld (You might know it).

When not playing i love writing (Say that but its been month since i done that :D), planning my conquest of earth (Emperor Mathieu Duval :D) and reading books (Right now i'm reading A Song Of Ice And Fire, better than i thought).

So yea here i am, even if I've been on this site for a while (two week ?).

Hi all,

I'm Alex, just recently got RimWorld and I have to say I'm hooked.
I've heard about it before as well (first on the DF forum), but after playing Dwarf Fortress for a while I've always found it difficult to play any other colony mgmt type of game (all felt incomplete opposed to DF ... lacking any soul), so I could not convince myself to get it. But when I saw the Alpha 13 release info and a few let's play with it, the game felt so organic with the emotional interaction between the colonists that I could not resist and I have to say I am happy I got it - only RW and DF seem to be able to give me the feel of real immersion in the colony and not just mindless drones/building.
Interesting enough RW makes me care even more about my little colonists then DF, probably due to the fact that you usually have less. Still a noob though, so learning :)

Anyway so about me: I'm married got a little kid and I work in mgmt for a corporation, so I guess less technically inclined then majority of ppl here, though I did dabble here or there in some basic programming.

Favorite other games, hmm: Dwarf Fortress, Cataclysm DDA, Morrowind & Skyrim, Heroes 3&4, Age of Wonders, Civilizations 3, probably a few others I forget but usually RPG, TBS, base building type of games.

Hope to see you all around, have fun!

Post by: firescythe on April 26, 2016, 08:07:32 AM
Wellhello,
Maybe started at Colonization or Civ2 back there... ever since then I loved city building, colony thriving, etc. In the last few years on Steam I got my attention on latest ones from this city/survival style, but not hauling in library quite many of them - neverending development is a bit turnoff, but I have Maia, DF-9, and always checking for similars. Rimworld has stickglued me for 3rd days in a row, and that is rare :)

I have a lengthy title list of played games (some hundreds, maybe thousandplus), but ultimate favorite style is TBS for solo and co-op action for multi. As I was always fancy about alien-repulsion, XCOM(:Apocalypse from 1997) is in my very heart, and enjoying it's rebirth with XCOM2 (also being very strict at game rating, i give them 8/10 due to awful blanders.), for multi it is L4D series (with huge palette of fan content).

Worst game related story? Let's not mention unintentional save deletions :-[
Maybe it is more to the fun part, but in our capitol they have just built a bunch of malls, and I was watching a midnight movie (some action, not memorable) in a very new one, but this place has actually closed doors by the end of the movie, so we were supposed to find and leave on the only non-locked exit. So just imagine: you have never been before to the mall, where all lights are on, but noone else is around except your fellow moviewatchers, you try to open the 2nd locked exit doors and looking around puzzled, having no instructions, and noone there to guide you... actually if some scream would break up, with my most practiced move I grab a blunt object, look for cover and the oncoming zombiehorde....... it was best no sharing this "fear" with the others there :D

Best breakfast cereal: home made nuts-whatsoever-seeds-with-honey-in-the-oven, have it well baked (I love crunchy stuff), then eat with milk from small bowl/mug. Would eat it all day :) When being guest I have tried Nestlé Fitness, that was pretty close to it.

"Introduce yourself!"
Okay, I will!

(http://inome.com.ua/img/cms/about/1.jpg)

Fooled you!  That's not me.

Hi.  I am Zombra (not pictured).  I put that glam photo there for a bit of visual interest.

I just spent about 30 of the last 48 hours playing RimWorld after a friend of mine on RPG Codex mentioned it in passing.  Paid full price for the alpha and everything.  Love the game, still learning new things.  I'm always very excited about games that give me robust AI automation tools and this is perfect.

Usually I am into CRPGs.  Anything character-driven, particularly when I have some control over character attributes and motivation, as opposed to prescripted stuff written by someone else.  I also very much enjoy procedurally generated characters.  Basically anything that makes me feel like I am participating in a story rather than watching a movie.  (I like movies too - but they don't make good games.)

Games can make me cry; that's about the most embarrassing game-related thing I can think of.  I guess that happens more in scripted games though, stuff like The Walking Dead which is all script, and mostly all designed to make you cry.  I cry at movies too.  Hell, I cry watching Rick and Morty.  I haven't cried yet playing RimWorld though, not even when my trusty warg Fifi who'd been with me since the beginning was gunned down in her prime by a machine gun turret aimed at an angry turtle.  I do have an "Awww" moment every time a colonist visits Fifi's grave, though.

I don't really "do" breakfast.  That's another half hour I could be sleeping in in the morning instead.  I don't even have a mechanism for coffee.  Though that may be changing this year.

I have been a analyst programmer for about 25 years now and I live in Montreal, Quebec. I've worked on games (iOS, PC), business software (accounting, db, edi, data mining, ...) and programming languages development (PPL) throughout my career. I am the president of ArianeSoft Inc. which opened in 2006 and mainly do consulting work from home now.

I am a fan of RPG games, board games, electronics, 3d printing, anything nerdy. :) I've been playing drums since childhood in different bands and I'm in the process of building my own studio to get back into music creation.

Well, that's me in a nutshell.

Glad to now become part of this thriving community.

Hi Everyone,
I am Realjuan and live in Freiburg, Germany while finishing my masters in Computer Science. As my name suggest I am not German, but Colombian. Meet up brewing? For beer of course :D

How did you find Rimworld.
I found Rimworld on youtube, but I can't remember the channel because is not someone I follow.

Other games that I like
My favorite game all time was Diablo 2, I liked the idea of Puzzle Pirates but hate that lack of dedication from their development team, and I also love competitive games like Counter Strike, Dota, World of Tanks. Right now you can find me in World of Tanks and learning how to play Poker. Also trying to get into playing-painting miniatures and I love to WATCH Magic:The Gathering (to expensive for me).

-My most embarrassing gaming-related story?
When I was around 16 or so, I was left alone at the house so I started playing Diablo at around 4pm and then I heard a sound so I turn the screen off and hide under the desk. It was 1am and my sister was coming from a party, when she was in her room I turn the screen back on and played until 6am and then I woke up at 8am and kept playing. The great teenage years.

Cereal:
I normally buy one and if I like it I stick to it until I move (which is often).

Hobbies:
Warhammer (just starting)
Poker (learning)
Web Design (Always in the back of my mine, but I cant never finish something)
Writting? I would like to start a blog, but my grammar is soooo bad.

Random Fact:
I never mess up with Games, but with Rimworld I am thinking of doing it. I did take a class in AI so lets see if I learned anything.

Hi all Rimmers!

I saw a playthrough on Youtube and liked the challenges so bought and have been playing a few hours now. My playstyle is just jump right in and if I can't figure it out then start reading the help and fourms.  lol

Love the challenges even if it do seem the storytellers can be merciless.

Thanks for this well thought out game.

Hi! I'm Rocket50 (Erick) and I live in Brazil. I'm nothing except an amateur art hobbyist and a dreamer.


- I found Rimworld in a channel on youtube, quickly I got interested. I've watched a lot of videos about the game.

- Games with freedom are my favorites, like Terraria and The Sims.

- The most embarrassing game was F22 Interceptor from Megadrive. When I was young, appeared with a creepy skull, I was playing this game when I got the game over screen with a creepy skull. I fell off the chair and quickly I ran away from my room.

Hey guys. I'm Admiral Obvious (Chris). I'm currently in between (real) jobs at the moment.

I found out about RimWorld from EnterElysium, and WeaselZone, and couldn't help but notice how it looked like a more accessible clone of Dwarf Fortress (that's a good thing right). After seeing a few episodes, I decided to buy in, even going as far to get the Name In Game package, as I can see great promise in this game.

My favorite other game is Dwarf Fortress (of course), and recently i've taken a liking to Europa Universalis.

I don't really have an embarrassing gaming related story I can think of...

Corn Pops is the best (tasting) breakfast cereal for me, although I tend to eat Oatmeal (call me weird) with raisins.

Hi all, just another gamer here, im from New Zealand

i cant remember how i came across rimworld, but it was a year or so ago, i gave it a go, but didnt really give it a chance. Just had another go last week, and i must say, ive become rather hooked!!!

Other games ive been enjoying lately are, Mount and Blade Warband(with mods),and Prison Architect( hey rimworld and PA graphics look like they came off the same shelf!)
Always been a big fan of "sim type" games, and not that horrible thing from EA!
Simcity(cityskylines = simcity 5 lol) Populus(im old) ThemeHospital, Dungeon Keeper, Evil Genius, stronghold series, anno 1404?
Basically i like building games, even moreso with military in it, and i loooooooove building walls and defenses!!!
rimworld reminds me a bit of timber and stone, another indie colony type simulator but in 3d. dwarf fortress looks interesting but i cant get past the horrid UI.
Embarrising rimworld storie, i was all like " hey honey, check out this game im into at the moment" she rolls her eyes. show her the social aspect of the game and that ive named two of the pawns after us and were married, a season or two pass ingame, next thing the pawn named after me has been divorced by the wife and my namesake has married the other girl pawn, a bit later my ex wife shivs up my new wife. My real life GF was not impressed and thinks the game set a bad example, "GREAT!" i said, so i got to stay up all night gaming that night! i.e sleep on the couch! haha

and i dont know if its a thing where you guys are from, but weet bix! cereal of champs! until they make bacon cereal!!!

Hello!

I'm an aging gamer mother from Iowa.  ;D Yes, my kids game and so do I, though our interests vary widely. They roll their eyes at Dwarf Fortress, the little rats.

That's where I first heard tell of Rimworld. I didn't know whether or not I'd like it, but then I saw some of my favorite Youtube Lets' Players had played it. Watching got me very, very interested. As a single mom, I can't always get the games I'd like to get but it was my summer treat time so today I took the plunge and bought Rimworld. I've really enjoyed the bit of it I've done!

I've been playing Dwarf Fortress for a few years, and lately also played the heck out of Stardew Valley. I love building games, Harvest Moon style games, and these more stark colony survival type games.

And I have oatmeal. And tea. Can't forget the tea, or I'm just not fit for human interaction.

I like games such as RimWorld with needing to supply yourself and build with resources you get

I also don't know a lot about the game, so if you can help me, pm me (someone said to hit create world so I can try mods but I'm afraid to plz help)

What introduced me to RimWorld:
-I got tired of other ol' games and own and started a quest for new games. I eventually gave up and went on YouTube. One of the people I subbed started playing RimWorld. I was instantly excited as well a instantly hooked. I went on to get the game, and am still playing to this date. (Also messing around with Developer Mode)

My favourite other game:
-I've had a mind-war with Minecraft vs Battleships Forever vs A8. None came on top and they all decimated each other, so I'm still not sure of my other favourite game. I own a bunch of other games, too.

My most embarrassing in-game story(ies):
1. One day a mad squirrel came knocking on my door. I was dumb and constructed an IED trap in front of the door (And of course forbid it) but the squirrel tripped the trap as it was knocking on the door. One of my colonists at that time were around, but the squirrel instead of attacking my colonist kept attacking the door. The IED trap finally exploded and killed one colonists and downed two other colonists. It sucked.

Breakfast Cereal?
-Oatmeal or Krave
-Excuse the pun

P.S. I just registered

Hello all! Long time player/reader, first time poster. :) I've been playing RimWorld since Jan '15. It's my on-again-off-again addiction that I keep coming back to with each new release.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've always been into the sim/builder games. I spent tons of time playing SimCity and SimCity 2000 in the '90s; I was all over the SCURK scene when it emerged on the Internet in the mid '90s. A few years ago, I got hooked on Minecraft shortly after the switch from infdev to alpha in 2010, and I have been running private servers for friends and colleagues ever since.

After starting to get bored with Minecraft, a friend of mine introduced me to Dwarf Fortress in early 2012. I loved the idea of it, but I couldn't get past the interface and steep learning curve. I would watch a few hours of tutorials/lets plays on YouTube, feel like I had a good handle on it for a couple of days, and realize that I'd completely forgotten everything a week later.

Then for some reason in late December 2014, I decided to try DF again. I think I was Googling around for UI mods or something, and I came across a post on Reddit suggesting RimWorld as another game in the genre of DF but with a more more approachable and usable interface. It looked great, and I bought my copy just a few days later.  :D

-What's your favorite other game?
Most recently, Cities Skylines.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Not particularly embarrassing, but a funny personal story. Back in the early alpha days of Minecraft, shortly after I started my first server, one evening some friends and I were trying to clear out some trees. This was before there were separate biomes, and generic oak trees just grew everywhere. I figured I could do a "controlled burn" to easily clear out an area, but little did I know how quickly fire spread (much faster back then). Hundreds of trees were ablaze by the time I came up with a solution. No one was fast enough to cut them down, so I resorted to dropping stacks of TNT ahead of the fire to create a physical break. That massive scar upon the landscape still hadn't healed for over a year.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Frosted mini wheats or raisin bran crunch! Getting old means trying to at least pretend to have a healthy breakfast. :D

Me too!  Except I couldn't put more than 30 minutes into actually playing DF (or attempting to).  I could not get past the UI.  I tried.  So I console myself with reading DF LP's.  ;)

Howdy y'all! My name is Andrew, I'm an unabashed economics nerd and simulation enthusiast who stumbled onto this game by chance. See, I play another game called Prison Architect with a very similar visual style. I saw a screencap of this game, thought it was a mod, checked it out, and then saw the words "Dwarf Fortress meets Firefly." Those being two of my favorite things, I bought it on the spot. I have no regrets.

Me - Really It's all about Me....

   I have been playing games for many years now, starting with the old Nintendo Entertainment System back in the late 1980s.  Eventually went onto PC games and never went back to Console gaming.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I first saw Rimworld on Youtube in a Let's Play series... I instantly fell in love with the game once I played it.   Being a fan of both Sci-Fi and management simulation games it was perfect and just kept getting better.

-What's your favorite other game?

My favorite game(s) of all time would have to be three.. Mass Effect Trilogy.  Love the lore, the characters and overall story.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Well, for anyone who watches my Let's Plays... I tend to be a bit jumpy.. so yeah I'm that guy who jumps when the toast pops out of the toaster...  - so needless to say anytime a zombie, creeper or even bunny rabbit happens to come up behind me.. I freak .. well in the case of Rimworld that would be when RAID suddenly appears on my screen and I realize I am armed with a muffalo chop (okay maybe that isn't possible) but still... ;)

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Toughest Question of them all ...IF I must narrow it down to one, then Lucky Charms... why? pfft Obviously because their magically delicious.. and really.. who doesn't like magic?  :)

Hello! Not sure what I'm doing here. Friend got me interested in this and really looking forward to steam release? (By the way does anyone know if that's going to have steamworks drm or not? If I can I kinda prefer to launch my games without steam reporting it...)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
DF introduced me I guess, there isn't much similar to this style of gameplay. The fact rimworld actually has production values and an interface makes it a lot more suitable for me since I'm not really at 100% at all times.

-What's your favorite other game?
The game I've returned to the most consistently is actually doom! The originals that is, new one is good too though. People always making cool stuff for it and I don't think it's stopping anytime soon.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I don't think I can post that on a worksafe board.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Frosted flakes, no contest. Maybe it's heresy but I just LOVE waiting till they get kinda soggy and clumpy, so sweet and tasty and nommy like that. And the leftover milk is so sugary and sweet I wish I could just buy presweetened with frosted flakes milk when I go out.

Quill18!

-What's your favorite other game?
That'd have to be a tie between Star Wars Battlefront II, Fallout: New Vegas and Crash Bandicoot: Warped.

My parents got my evil genius as a kid *LOVED* it. Also whenever i played age of empires i turtled against the AI and built mazes with the walls . . . . gates lead to nowhere left peasants in archer towers AI path finding would tunnel through three gates to get to three walls that went nowhere it was funny to watch.
-What's your favorite other game?
It is between the gears of war series and evil genius. Though i also love resident evil 5 as 'bro' couch coop shooter.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Self jackassing in couch coop during Halo combat evolved. Sometimes you go to bounce a grenade or land a banshee things go wrong and you both respawn.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Grits. Or oatmeal. Grits with cheese or shrimp or maybe some sugar or maybe brown sugar. Also pizza is good for breakfast but is not a breakfast cereal.

Greetings programs, I'm Skullever (that's Skull-ever, not Skull-lever, but I take them both.) Maybe you've seen me somewhere before; I'm all over the place as far as the internet and gaming go, and I always go by the same username. I've posted on the forums a few times after I bought the game at A13 release, but I never actually introduced myself.

I came to RimWorld from Prison Architect while searching for management games of a similar style; for a sample of the type of gamer I am, I've logged well over 1000 hours in Crusader Kings 2. I think that makes that my favorite other game, but Rocket League is a pretty close second, and Overwatch is also rising fast. I'm not quite sure what constitutes and embarrassing gaming story, but I lost 8-4 in a Rocket League tournament on Thursday and still haven't recovered my pride.

As for breakfast cereal, frosted mini wheats are definitely the best.

Very psyched to be here! New to RimWorld.

I came across RimWorld because of Steam Early Access (wish I had known about it sooner).

Some of my favourite other games are Ecco the Dolphin and Ecco: Tides of Time (dat music), Stardew Valley, Viridi (lol) and very likely, RimWorld!

I enjoy "healthier" breakfast cereals with some crunch, but nothing "flakey" like corn or bran flakes.

I like hard cereals made of a healthy grain that are crunchy with a little bit of sweet to them. Multi-Grain Cheerios and Corn Bran Squares/Crunch are enjoyed.

Aww yeah, just look at those delicious, crunchy, hard squares. :9

It also sounds suspiciously similar to kibble when poured in a bowl...

I'm sorta new to RimWorld, been playing non-stop for the past few days but I'm already catching on. I'm not the best at structural design, but RimWorld is one of the few games I can make a decent looking home on.
 - My friend introduced me to RimWorld and I fell in love with the game ever since.
 - My favorite games include XCOM, Sims, Starbound, and now RimWorld!
 - One of my most embarrassing gaming stories is whenever I play a horror game I end up leaning back in my chair with my finger hovering over the pause button, pausing almost every second because I'm afraid what might be around the corner, be it a falling over bottle or some sort of monster.

I think I was looking for a substitute to DF and was consuming everything I could get my hands on just to get that fix.

-What's your favorite other game?
Um. Depends on the day. Right now it's Black Desert Online. I'd love to play DF, but it melted the CPU of the computer two computers ago so I'm not allowed to play it. Plus, I never got past nobles and died to lagdeath. Not allowed to play it but boy did I laugh until I couldn't breathe most days.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Uhhh.... I really liked the F.E.A.R. saga. But I don't like playing horror games. So I bullied a coworker into coming over and playing it for me so I could watch. (I was in Japan and you paid not only by the hour but by bandwidth. Also, Youtube playthroughs wasn't that popular yet)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Saw it on steam, saw that it was essentially what I had always wanted Dwarf Fortress to be, saw the overwhelmingly positive reviews.  Only the 2nd full price steam game purchased in 2016.  Lost my first colony to a horde of boomalopes hanging outside my base...I hunted one.  My buddies spent all last weekend drinking various beverages and trying to get a colony to survive the first season. Absolutely loving this game, I can see so much potential here.

-What's your favorite other game?  This is a brutally difficult question to answer, so I will do by genre.
RPG - Mass Effect Series (Despite the endings)
CRPG - Final Fantasy 3 (6 in japan)
RTS - Starcraft (all of them)
Grand Strategy - Crusader Kings 2
Turn Based Strat - Civ 5

Wow...there are a lot of genres.  I am just going to stop there for now because I think anyone wants to know that my favorite racing game is Burnout 2.  Ok now I'm done...



-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
There was that time last weekend when I had too much rum and forgot to reset my grower to grow food as top priority and didn't realize it until I got a low food warning.  But probably my secret shame is that I went LARPING once ten years ago and still have super vivid and fun memories from the weekend in the woods...who knew that trying to be stealthy in real life is way way harder than it is in games...

I follow a couple of Youtubers specifically to get a feel for games. I saw this one of SplatterCat's channel and got very interested, despite it not being my usual sort of thing.

Alice: Madness Returns. I love its light horror genre, which is sadly forgotten about in this age of ultra-twistedness and jumpscares...

Don't have one; I rarely embarrass myself as I don't play games with other people.

Hi everyone! My name is Mitch, which is short for Mitchell and has the unfortunate setback of rhyming with several other awful words. Anyways I am new to Rimworld but not city management sims. Right now I am hooked on Rimworld like you would not believe, especially since it happens in space. Currently I am prepping for graduate school, where I hope to attend a program in Astrobiology.

-What introduced you to Rimworld? Or to this style of game in general?
I started playing management sims after watching an excellent lp youtuber named Aavak (phenomenal btw...truly a must see). I delayed on getting Rimworld because life threw other things my way until just recently however.

-What's your favorite other game?
I know its probably to 'mainstream' to be cool, but I love Skyrim and feel as if it has given me the highest level of immersion, enjoyment, and down right entertainment value of any game out there. Although Rimworld might be a competitor :).

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
So I was playing Farcry 3 when the most embarrasing thing happened. Keep in mind that I have never played a Farcry game before. Anyways here I was collecting pretty blue flowers from a stagnant pond when BAM!!! A massive set of crocodile jaws blots out the tv screen. Not surprisingly I sprung off my couch screaming bloody murder. The only reason I survived in game is because I was so pumped with fear-induced adrenaline I went into the flight or fight response. Long story short I was in a full standing position and one step away from a panic attack.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Well my mom had the awful notion that oatmeal was better for us...so I didn't really develop a favorite as a kid. So I am gonna go with boring old Life cereal, any kind.

Hello,

I'm working as Workday Consultant (ERP system for people management), but my huge dream was always to develop my own game *.* I have tons of ideas! But sooo less time :( But maybe will go for diploma in Game design or Animation :) will have something to do on weekends :P

-What Introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I saw one episode which Nothernlinon was playing and I loved playing Banished, so I wanted to check out this one as well :)
-What's your favorite other game?
Starcraft II, Banished was great, but I'm waiting for PC version of No Man's Sky and that might be one of my favourite games :)
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Not sure if that would be embarrassing, but while I was playing Starcraft II, I had break between matches I started typing on ingame chat... and since I am female gamer, guys went nuts... a lot of invites, and wierd comments :P apparently Starcraft II is not game for girls T.T
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I am on diet T.T no cereals for me :( but I loved Kangoos and Cini Minis with cinnamon flavour

Hi. Stagus from central Scotland here.....middle aged gamer!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Always loved strategy.  This looked cool.

-What's your favorite other game?
We have all the game systems in the house and I've been playing Prison Architect on the Xbox until our shiny new PC appeared.  So in a way PA is responsible for the Rimworld purchase because the Xbox couldn't really handle PA.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I used to COD a fair bit with a clan of very funny guys from Glasgow.  On a Thursday night I used to have a glass of wine or two when I played.  On one particular occasion I had imbibed a wee bit too much and was being instructed by my clan that the enemy was right in front of me but couldn't see me but alas I was blissfully ignorant of their colourful advice and after an age was dispatched by the guy whose back I had been looking at for way too long.

Hi All.  Andrew here, from the US but living working in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.  Yes it's hot.  No, we don't *only* drive camels ;-).

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've been playing sims off and on for a looong time (but no "Sims" - I have standards).  I remember an Ant Colony sim (ok ok, forget what I said about standards), Zoo Tycoon, a Business Tycoon game, etc... I found RimWorld through social networking; one of my coworkers is a gamer, and he mentioned it.
-What's your favorite other game?
Changes too often.  I really really enjoy the AC and Halo series on Xbox.  Shout out to Far Cry 3 & 4 too.  I'm also into WoW, but thinking to break up, now that they changed all my 100-level character's abilities without asking permission.  I also play a lot of puzzle games: Portal, Plague Inc, The Room.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Can't think of any really interesting.  The closest was in RimWorld when I was still a super noob (now I'm just a noob) and I accidentally trapped all my colonists but one inside by having the other build something in front of the only functioning door.  And I was wondering why they were all starving :-D.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Uh, hi.
<- My name is over there

I was introduced to Rimworld when etalyx/Gamersdissent did a series for it, but couldn't buy it at the time because my family's Mac absolutely hates auto-updating software not directly built into steam. Since it's out on steam, I can enjoy arguably one of the best survival/rts games ever. Woo!

One funny story that I have is when I ordered a bionic leg to be installed on a colonist who was missing one. my best doctor brought the medicine over, realized he was starving, and went off to grab some food. I was busy laying out blueprints, so I didn't notice him raiding the wine cellar.

I decided to check up on the surgery, and I found him passed out drunk one bed over from the patient, with another doctor finishing the surgery. I have no idea what happened when I looked away, because my best doctor was drunk, in a medical bed, and missing a bionic leg. I may have forgotten about a bill to remove his for replacement by advanced ones. That still doesn't explain him being drop dead drunk.

Post by: NullQuery on August 16, 2016, 02:32:11 PM
Hi. I'm known by NullQuery. I came across Rimworld because Steam recommended it to me. I noticed it looked very similar to Prison Architect and after 2 days of pondering I bought the game because the concept sounds good.

What I love about these types of games is that they allow for a great sense of freedom. You can add your own things to the world if you're not against writing some code. Regardless of that each playthrough involves a unique world with new stories to tell.

I'm particularly interested in multiplayer games of this nature because then you can share your stories with other people, but I've found existing games such as Minecraft to lack a great deal of freedom. There are other games I've discovered that offer much more freedom, but they're very niche and complicated. By far the best game of the lot is multiplayer and involves players being stuck on a space station with each other, trying to keep the station running and watching their back for traitors. There's not much of a strategy element to that game though which I find to be comforting given the lack of time I have nowadays.

That said I do play other games. I'm a fan of Team Fortress 2 due to its cartoony nature (i.e., doesn't take itself too seriously), and I own a copy of Tabletop Simulator to play board games with random people.

I used to be in charge of various (insignificant) multiplayer gaming communities, and I would spend my time developing developing multiplayer environments, writing the laws of nature for role-playing communities. Basically like a DM, except instead of telling my story through words telling it through computer code instead. I still think that's something I enjoy doing, but I haven't had the motivation to do anything with my 13 years of experience yet. :(

As for breakfast cereal: I don't eat any. In fact, for a long time I never even ate any breakfast.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
 
My boyfriend told me about Rimworld because it's blistering hot here in the Florida so I'd rather spend August (and probably most of September) playing a video game.

-What's your favorite other game?
     I like building cities and managing characters. In no particular order - Tropico, Dwarf Fortress, Cities:Skylines. Banished was fun until I figured out how to "win" all the time. Played Minecraft and tried Terraria for a little while years ago, but didn't stick with them. Minecraft was only fun when I was taught how to spawn all the specific blocks I wanted so I could build like Lego, and for some reason Terraria just didn't hook me.
I'm really enjoying learning to play Rimworld. It's complicated and the (reset-able) unpredictability settings make it fun to keep playing. I just get frustrated when I only have three colonists that can wield weapons and seven strong baddies show up, even in slightly easier mode settings.  Thank goodness for autosaves and randomized AI events.

Well I suppose I'll answer the questions because why not?

So what introduced me to Rimworld? Well a fella called Northerlion began a series on it and I got interested, I saved up a bit of money and here I am.

My top 3 favorite games as far as I can remember are...
3. Terraria, great game, fun game play, bosses, weapons, all that good stuff,
2. Borderlands in general, fun story, great characters, enjoyed the weapons, overall a fun time till the very end,           
1. Skyrim, adventure ahoy, I enjoyed going 'round fighting monsters, stealing from people, modding, all of the good things I could and did do

In terms of embarrassing gaming storied? I'm not too sure, I can remember a lot of embarrassing things though I guess I could talk about... something, I'm not sure what to talk about, i'm drawing a blank ya know? So I suppose I'll skip this one, though I can say i'm listening to Creepypastas right now, something about a murderer and agents trying to figure stuff out while the FBI follows them.

And finally favorite breakfast serial, i'd have to say I enjoy me a bit of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, close second is Receeses Puffs and third is Fruity Pebbles.

So yeah, there's some basic information related to me as a person, hope you enjoyed.

Hi everyone!

I've vaguely followed RimWorld for a while but not too closely as to not spoil the surprise. I'm a long time player of these sorts of games with my favourite being Gnomoria, but sadly due to moving in with my girlfriend and becoming a full time adult with a job, i rarely have time to get my teeth into a good management sim.

Luckily my better half is going away for the weekend so I intend to avoid the gym, eat junk food, drink beers and buy/play RimWorld for 2 days straight. I'll let you all know how it goes!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I have seen the game on Youtube. A Youtuber who plays mainly these types of games, has introduced the game. And in general, as i wrote above, im addicted since a long time. I played the first SimCity and Civilization tons of hours. I loved The Sims from the beginning. And every time a new game comes out like this one i need to try it.

-What's your favorite other game?
All SimCitys except SimCity6  :P, Evil Genius, Cities: Skylines, Don´t Starve, 7 Days to Die, Anno 2070 and all Annos before, Prison Architect, Starbound and much more.....

Hi there.

I'm Yodarkore, 36 years old, from France.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I'm fan of strategy games and city builders since i'm 7 years old. I used to play sim city first of the name, really liked it, then civilization, then a ton of games. Nowaday i got bored about modding Stellaris and Hearts of Iron IV (trying to improve the poor end game AI that was giving no real challenge, sadly.. :/ ) so i looked for a new builder. I was already owning Factorio (wich i like it a lot) and one of my steam friend was already playing rimworld, for days. So i reviewed the game, was hesitating, and asked him if he liked it, as that friend have some similar tastes regarding strategy/builder games, and he told me he was fond of this game. So i bought it (on steam), and now i really enjoy it.

I'm used to design some mods, and i really like games wich we can user friendly mod them, wich seems to be the case for Rimworld. Altough I'm still learning the game on vanilla, there is some mods outhere who are very appealing, and that could really fit in the "core" game without (imho) denaturing Tynan's initial project and vision of his game (QoL mods especially)

So far, my best epic fail is all my colonists dying on day 9 with Pheobe storyteller on pu**y erm easy mode, from heatwave since i tought making electricity (and coolers then) would be much more complicated and material requiring than it is.

For breakfast? Coffee please, i'm not hungry yet!

Hi everyone! I am based in Japan, and have been trying to convince my co-workers here to try Rimworld (I was happy to see Japanese as a language option!)

I love the game and I found it after researching MUDs! They brought me to Dwarf Fortress, which brought me to Rimworld.

I do not play with mods, as I love the game the way it is, but after reading posts here I may consider it!

(Joking, joking.)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Back in the day, I grew up playing Super Mario Bros on an NES, and eventually moved on to things like Breath of Fire III on the PlayStation. When I moved to PC gaming, I started out playing strategy games like Warcraft II: BNE, and Starcraft on a Pentium II running at 566MHz, with a 128MB graphics card, and 512MB of RAM. I moved on to CnC, and then other genres of games from there.
The first I heard of RimWorld was while I was moderating the chat of a Twitch livestreamer I had been following.
I bought a license for RimWorld and started playing a few months ago, and it has become one of my favourite games.

-What's your favorite other game?
On PC, it has to be the original Diablo. I have never actually finished it, but I loved the atmosphere and story it created.
On console, I'm torn between Double Dragon II on the NES, and Breath of Fire III on the PlayStation.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Actually, in RimWorld itself, though it's a long one.
A pawn I had named after myself went into a daze, and stripped naked outside, in the 4 degree Celsius weather. Then, upon the daze ending, he headed to get some food, and he had another mental break, this time a booze binge. Upon reawakening after blacking out, he then attempted to eat again, having yet another mental break, this time a berserk rage, wherein he incapacitated his wife, and was downed by a squirrel just outside the front doors. After being rescued, he died with 97% immunity to an infection from a squirrel bite on his leg.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Personally, the only breakfast cereal I really liked was the old Trix. Not this new Trix that is just generic "fruit flavour" coloured spheres; the old Trix that were shaped like jacks, and actually had a different fruit flavour for each colour.

  Gander's greetings to you. My handle is buttflexspireling and my dad introduced me to Rimworld. He said it was a good way to socialize and meet people.
  My favorite other game is Azure Dreams. The annoying things about it were that you could fuse monsters and feed them element changing seeds to change say a fire attribute monster to a wind attribute monster. This was pretty much the same as hatching them from eggs, raising their levels in combat and breeding them in anticipatory cycles over and over again. Another annoying feature was that you could chuck items, such as spells, at enemies and fight at different elevations of terrain.
  My favorite gaming-related story is that I sat down to play a game of Palladium with my boy scout friends one time when I discovered smoke coming from the tent. Apparently a burning stick had been left too near to the tent. This, of course, had set the tent on fire.
  Finally, my favorite breakfast cereal is father's oats. My family likes to play pranks on the dogs by feeding it to them and then squirting them with the garden hose. The dogs hate the game but my family gets a good laugh out of tormenting the dogs this way.

What got me into the game basically was both the Familiar Art Design in the game from Prison Architect and having an amazing experience on my first Playthrough  thanks to a Download link given by a friend on another Community not long ago, and I may be planning to support the game by buying the Steam retail when I get the paycheck from the bussary this month :)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
To RimWorld specifically, I'm pretty sure it was a Let's Play, I think one of Quill18's.  Since then I have my own Let's Plays (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOd_inYO7SAbFdPeDkmqjpg) on RimWorld!  As for this style of game in general, that's a very tough question.  Does Dungeon Keeper count?  Earlier RTS games like the first iterations of Warcraft or Settlers?  Rogue?  Rampart?  Civilization?  RimWorld has elements of them all.  I can't really think of an earlier example of RimWorld's style of implementing all of of these elements together than Dwarf Fortress, though there are still pretty important differences.

-What's your favorite other game?
Dwarf Fortress!  The game inspired me to become a computer programmer (at a fairly late age for deciding on a career).  I think RimWorld is one of the only really successful "clones" (for lack of a better term) of DF, implementing those important parts like history-specific artwork that make it such a special game, leaving out less important things like water-flow that kill FPS, and adding a wonderfully polished and intuitive user-interface which has always been DF's greatest barrier to accessibility.

Hi guys, this is my first post :)

I'm a competitive and social gamer that has recently started twitch live streaming.

Reasons why I love RimWorld:
-Replay Value
   The dynamic storytelling and the rich and well balanced mechanics make every game feel different.

-Strategy
   A good strategy and set of tactics can really increase your chances of surviving in this game. The game seems well balanced enough to allow many viable Strats.

-Adaptability
   Adapting is everything. Many bad RNG (although sometimes it's rediculous) situations are not so bad if the strategy is adjusted accordingly.

-Challenge
   The game is really hard. But everytime I lose, I can see places where I went wrong and know that I can improve. After many games I can really feel the improvement, and it feels great.

-Dark story
   I love that this game has a dark side and explores the extremes you would go to keep your colony alive. Makes for great storytelling, even for people who have never played the game.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I was introduced to RimWorld by a good friend who has steered my in the direction of a few good games. It took me a while to get into / used to RimWorld but with a little guidance at the beginning I now find the game very addictive and look forward to a relaxing session rimming most evenings!  ;D

-What's your favorite other game?

ARK, I have racked up over 1200 hours playing it so far and it doesn't seem like it will slow down.

I also like strategy games like Civilization / Banished plus Football Manager!

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

I wish I had one but off the top of my head I can't think of one.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Breakfast cereal ...... no!

Breakfast has to be croissants and a selection of meats (Ham / Salami etc) ;)

Hi there!
My name's Henrique, talking from Brazil.
I got a major (using the U.S. term) in Mathematics, and doing a master's in Software Engineering.
I'm married, and got a son that now sleeps early enough for me to play some games a little.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've learn about RimWorld on a humorous post on the Interwebs about Steam Reviews.
Bought it as soon as I found that there is a DRM-free option  ;D

-What's your favorite other game?
OTTD, Worms, Diablo, Warcraft and its derivatives.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
One time, I tried to set up a dial-up Duke Nuken 3 multiplayer game with a friend, while using the landline phone to talk to him. It took me around 15 minutes to realize what I was doing  ;D

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Well, I don't usualy break my fast with cereal, but when I do, it's with frosted flakes (or even plain corn flakes, when I'm in the mood)!
FWIW, for my breakfast I usually drink either black coffe, yerba mate or tea (English Breakfast, or Ceylan), with a "Pão na chapa" (french bread, with butter, cooked on a pan) or a grilled cheese, and sometimes also a fruit (apple or banana) or fruit juice (orange, passion fruit or cashew).

(edit: grammar)

-Guess it: Factorio

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Nothing particularly embarrassing for now, I lost my first colony to fire, being totally unprepared to its magnitude of devastation. I guess this quite common. Maybe the most embarassing moment was when my hunter had to flee from a manhunter turtle after being badly wounded in a melee fight. I almost laughed when I saw that ***oh my god, soooooo scaryyyyyy*** turtle going mad. I don't laugh anymore at turtles.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've liked these kind of base-builder games for quite a while. I think this probably started with the Sims. I saw RimWorld in a Let's Play the first time and was fascinated by how much freedom of choice it usually leaves to the player.
I bought it on Steam as soon as it was released there because I couldn't use the payment options on rimworldgame.com

-What's your favorite other game?
Since I generally don't stick to certain genres, I would say Subnautica if i had to choose but I really only play one game at a time which right now is RimWorld. A few years ago I would have said Minecraft without any doubt.  ::)

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Had my colony eradicated by a pack of manhunter-squirrels (I think) because I didn't pay attention to them thinking my walls were already finished (clearly, they were not). The only colonist not incapacitated was hiding in the hospital (how ironic) badly injured and loosing blood while everyone else was laying outside. I even got assistance from a tribe but every colonist I could rescue alive afterwards died from multiple infections.


Unfortunately, I don't eat any breakfast cereal. I prefer toast.  :o


I'm from Germany and I hope my writing doesn't hurt too bad.  :D

Hello! I Kickstarted Rimworld so long ago; and I tried it when  it was first released. Haven't touched it since 2013; and I just tried it again yesterday. I was very impressed by all the updates. I'm looking forward to playing with the Mods and really digging into this game. If I can keep my colonists fed, sheltered, and safe.

Hi there! My name's Tony, or QuantumNelly as I'll preferably be referred to.
I was introduced to RimWorld by a youtuber called Quill18. For a few years now, I've had a strong interest in the game and the colony-building games over all. (Dwarf Fortress was a great substitute until now.)
Hands down, my favorite game of all time, is Bioshock. The first one. Would you kindly not ask why?
My most embarrassing gaming moment... Oof that's a bit of a tough one, but I'd have to say was when I was younger - say about 10 - I 'borrowed' a friend's game that I was envious of him having. I was so enamored in watching them play it, but when I finally got to play it myself, I failed miserably. What's worse is knowing that game was a dog game for the gameboy advance.
Captain Crunch. Don't ask. Personal favorite.

Looked at afew lets plays on youtube from some of my favourite subs. (Chris odd, mr falcon, northern lion)

Enjoyed the vids... checked the game spec (which is unbelievable light! A late 90s pc could run it!!)
Then bought it.

Hey everyone!
My name is DuctTape! I've been playing RimWorld for quite a while, but I haven't been that active on the forums until now, so I thought I'll introduce myself properly.

"-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?"
I found the game about one and a half year ago, while I was searching for sci-fi themed games. I've always been a fan of sci-fi games, and I never really played a colony-managament game before, so I thought I'll give it a try.

"-What's your favorite other game?"
My absolute, all-time favorite games are Mass Effect 1,2 and 3, and I've been playing a bunch of Factorio too recently.

"-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?"
I probably had an embarassing story, but the truth is, I don't remember :I

That's all, and thanks for reading!

Post by: Scythah on November 07, 2016, 10:32:10 AM
Sup, I'm new here. Just made up a name on the spot since I never use the same one twice.

I was first introduced to Rimworld when it came out on steam, watched the trailer and thought it looked sorta interesting but just put it on the wishlist for a month or so (wasn't sure about the price tag at the time). Then eventually I checked the game out in action on twitch and decided it was worth the cost and BAM! No looking back, no regrets. My new favorite game by far.

As far as other games though, I would say the Fable series has a special place in my heart, even if the games haven't aged well and Lionhead went under recently (that's a whole 'nother story anyway). The Fallout games are a close second, old (1 and 2) and new (3, NV, 4).

An embarassing gaming related story? Well, there's one that's embarassing in retrospect. When I was like 14 and played WoW, I used to play a hawt female elf who would dance naked on the zeppelin rides for tips in ingame gold. I also pretended to be an actual IRL girl a few times. Yeaaaah... pretty awkward.

That's about it, I think. Oh, uh... cereal, right? Yeah, fuck cereal for breakfast. Eggs for life homie.

Favorite game is Stellaris. But stuck on Rimworld now.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
A while ago (several years now) I saw a youtuber I really liked playing this. I watched every single episode he put out, and then once the content stopped I never looked into it again.

-What's your favorite other game?
So favorite is hard. Most played would probably be Crusader Kings, although EU4 is reeeeal close. My "this nostalgia is killing me, help please" game is Roller Coaster Tycoon, which made up 90% of my teen years. Dragon Age: Origins, if you told me to pick what game was the only in existence, would probably be my answer though. I guess you can call that a "favorite"

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
So about a year and a half ago I asked Tynan for a Steam key to the game. For those of you that aren't new to the game, you know that didn't exist yet. I had thought back when I watched the dude on youtube I bought the game. I didn't, I bought Prison Architect, which he played as well. I never responded to him, and I felt real bad  :-[
So I bought his game  ;D

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Yo dog, If you are an adult, and you feel self-conscious eating Count Chocula? You need to get your priorities straight. Count Chocula and the related cereals are amazing. And for anyone that thinks child cereals shouldn't transfer to adult life, you need to inject some fun into your sad existence friend.
And probably stop telling people what they can and can't do.

hi  !
A friend told me about this game so I wanted to check for it.
I started the game yesterday, and it was a big good surprise ! still in discovery mode.

Right now I have big trouble with my mens, they don't eat (except survival rations), don't cook and so they died slowly.  I repeated the tutorial 3 or 4 times but in new games they don't want to eat. I set rice plantation, hunting for some animals, built a simple stove , table and chairs. Some got cooking skill and job is activated and I can't succeed to get them feed. Am I doing something wrong ?
Anyway I will try again ;)
edit : it s ok now I understood what I did wrong.

About me,well,  I 'm an old gamer, my first game was Ultima II, and my most played game is Eve Online (12y).
and I don't eat cereals :)

Hi, I'm mon-j.  I'm new to Rimworld, but I've played a game or two in the past.  I seem to understand most of the beginner aspects of the game, and I'm having a good time.  I don't play with any mods yet, I just want to see what the game has to offer before I start tweaking things. 

Gotta love the draconian posting rules as well.

Hey all, just joined the forum.  Been playing a few weeks now and I'm enjoying the game.  Although my first introduction to some of the "quirks" was a solid mountain-base build that went sour went two colonists started fighting and the third colonist decided to break it up with an incendiary launcher, indoors, near the batteries... lol

Hey, I'm a big Rimworld fan who's been lurking on this forum for a few weeks and finally got around to making a profile.

What introduced you to Rimworld?
I found this game through Steam around early 2016 and, although I didn't buy it at the time, I kept my eye on it for several months. Around August, I got on a community sim kick and started playing older games in the genre like Towns and Dwarf Fortress. Finally, I decided that Rimworld was the game I was really looking to play and purchased it. Rimworld's take on interstellar sci fi is quite honestly my favorite that I've seen in quite a while, and the game has gotten me thinking about technology and human society in ways I'd never considered before.

What's your favorite other game?
Some of the first pc games I ever played were Portal and Portal 2, both of which are faves. My favorite game I've played since then is probably Factorio.

Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
My autobiography.

Favorite breakfast cereal?
I never liked breakfast cereal, but since they're made of practically the same things and, depending on how you do things, eaten at the same time of day, I'll say bread pudding.

Spotted the game in summer, waited for a sale on Steam. Didn't want to wait any longer. Surprised how good and how much potential there is. Feels like it's been inspired a lot by DF.

I like story-like elements, catastrophic failures, unforeseen consequences and ingenious use of mechanisms to make something happen with unforeseen consequences.

I'd love to have a bit of verticality in Rimworld. More events! Devices and contraptions! Socks and carps!

I'm liking the setting, ambient and soundtrack. Feels like Raynor on Mar Sara.

Hello Rimmers! (?)

My name is Josh and I've been a RimWorld addict and r/rimworld lurker for about a year.  The game overwhelmed me at first so I put it away for a rainy day.  That rainy day came and I haven't stopped playing, or ignoring my kids, since.  It's pretty damn amazing.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I was playing a great little game called Hearthlands but eventually I needed something more to scratch that city building itch and I found RimWorld.  It was the game I was looking for and I didn't even know it.

-What's your favorite other game?
I really like western action RPGs (Bethesda style) as a genre, I like some sports games also.  The only games that, as an adult, I've become as obsessed with as RimWorld where Dragon Age (Origins only, f*** the sequels) and Don't Starve.  I also have spent some time with Civ 4 and 5, FTL and Hearthlands.  I'm not much into narrative games, so games where I shape the stories being told really appeal to me.  There aren't too many cut scenes or dialogue boxes I won't skip.

Hi there, don't know if anyone still read this, nor if I'll be here for a long time as games usually bore me real quick...
But this game is one of a kind so I thought about introducing me-self.

I'm Konscience, a french guy , I'm about to pass (or not) my computer science degree (3rd year).
I really do love games who make me think hard, so you will never see me on those app-like quality games, unless I'm really depressed.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I discovered Rimworld on steam, I don't know, maybe 6 month ago, maybe less I can't say.
I used to play a little DwarfFortress some years ago, was really into it, but i spend more time reading the wiki than playing the actual game.
It's still by far my favorite kind of game, but the lack of graphisms was kind of boring...

-What's your favorite other game?

I really liked "The Void", X3 Albion Prelude, Stalkers series, Souls series and for those who had the privilege to play it, LEGO Rock Raiders.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Playing multiplayer games with random people. Toxicity in multiplayer games and MMOs is driving me mad, I go in a mental state and start hiding in my room. Final straw was: "Got insulted for being falsely accused of using the wrong skill"

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

I think muesly is quite good, mainly nutrient-wise, but the main issue there you see is, it start going between the teeth as it is quite hard, become uncomfortable...
But you can't beat left-over Carbonaras or bacon and eggs, with English muffins and a nut of butter...
I'm so sad that here in France we do not have anything else than Croissants, bread and confiture, as they are quite expensive (except for the bread, but you need to have it fresh from the Boulangerie, else it's hard as rock).

-Why do you love so much arguing with people?

I'm reaaaally sorry for the future and past blunt replies, sometimes I do not think over my thoughts, and it end up on a forum before I even realise  ^^". In fact I do not love arguing.

I think I'll do some modding in Rimworld, as well as some scenario...
Right now I'm in exam periods so it's not quite possible,
but I already have modded my game by:
-Removing breakdowns
-Reducing pawns social fights and bad social relation effects
-Reducing the frequency of solar flares and short circuit incident
-Reducing consumption of regular standing lamps (75W is really like ye old seal-burner, acting as a bronze lamp & a heater aswell)
Nothing fancy, but I like the the ease of modding here, and the modifications above are not vanilla friendly enough... need no think of better solutions.

Hey! I thought it might be high time I came on here and wrote a short bit about myself so y'all know I'm not just a troll.

I've been kicking around the RimWorld since A11 or so, not long before animal taming came to be. I heard about RimWorld through the Three Moves Ahead podcast in an episode about Cities: Skylines (one of the other games I'm guilty of obsessing over). I gamed a lot as a kid and teenager, all the way from the old DOS Carmen Sandiego game to everything Sim (remember Sim Hospital?!), the the original Metal Gear Solid, and Final Fantasy VII. But then got away from it as I grew up and stopped being able to afford systems and computers and all the things you need to play great games. As I've gotten older I have been able to get back into it and find that I am maybe more deeply impassioned by games than I was as a young person.

Unfortunately, time is at a premium in my 30's. I run a relatively new restaurant/bakery in Toronto, so gaming is by no means my #1 priority. But RimWorld has really captured my passion and I try to contribute as much as my time will allow, and I can't wait to see where Tynan takes us next!

Hey! I'm really new, just started a colony a week ago, and so far i really really like it! (i mean, i've already been playing it for 35 hours lol). Also, i'm from Argentina, English is my second language, so i may have some grammar mistakes.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Well i've always loved playing PC videogames, including strategy ones such as Age of Empires or Command and Conquer. I found Rimworld while i was exploring Steam (which i had previously only used to buy the Portal games) and what attracted me was the concept that, in this game, your units actually had a character, they had different personalities and backstories and capacities, and weren't just disposable clones made for working or fighting only. I actually care about my colonists here.
-What's your favorite other game?
Portal 2, probably. Its certainly the funniest one.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Oh, there are sooo many. The ones that come to my head right now are all from WoW (because everything is 10 times more embarassing in multiplayer lol), i was the worst player ever, especially on raids... once they pointed out how little damage i'd do and how easily i got myself killed and i got mad and accussed them of xenophobia. "You're just against me because i'm latina right?" x.x I was such a brat.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I was looking for something to help reset my brain. Early last month I ended up in the hospital and nearly died from blood loss. As it turned out, a huge tumor had taken up residence in my guts and had to be cut out. I spent 10 days in recovery before they cut me loose. I went home with a 8 scar on my belly, a bottle of pain pills, and I was 20 lbs lighter than when I went in. I'm a writer by trade and had a hell of a time getting my brain to reset and start working again. I'm pretty sure it was the blood loss. I had to have 8 units replaced and being severely anemic made sure my head was always in a fog. I was looking for something I could run on my MacBook that would be challenging and fun. The first few times I tried to play, I ended up just letting my colonies die out because I had trouble concentrating. After a few days I finally got the gist of the game and started playing in earnest.

-What's your favorite other game?

Probably Skyrim or Fallout 4. I'm a sucka for big open world RPGs.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Back when I had a day job, I was laid off for almost a year in the early 2000s. I played Everquest to pass the time. I had a level 65 ranger with dual epics. I seriously thought about putting that on my resume.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

Black coffee. That, or Cocoa Pebbles with rice milk. I can't drink regular milk anymore which sucks.

Well for RimWorld, I think I watched a YouTube video and just searched up the game. Been playing ever since. As for the genre, I would say that prison architect really got me into the genre of simulation.

I've been following this game for a little over a year now, but didn't actually purchase it until this Christmas.  I've watched YT videos, but never really grasped just how addicting this game would be until I finally purchased it.  RimWorld v.A16 will be the first version of the game I'll directly experience.

-What's your favorite other game?
This is always a tough question, and one that I usually break into two parts: Favorite Console Game (Final Fantasy 3 (SNES USA)) and Favorite PC game (Arcanum).  I suppose if pressed into a corner and asked for my all-time favorite game... it would be Super Mario Bros 3 for the NES.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I knew of DF probably about 4 years ago, but it's pretty prohibitive to get into. I bought Prison Architect early in Early Access, tried it out a bit, before it was how it is today, and didn't touch it again. Fast forward to now, RimWorld becomes a Steam top seller the week it's put into Steam EA, but I don't want to buy it because of the price. What if I don't like it? After all, I could never get in to DF or PA or Banished. Just after the new year, after not buying anything on the Winter Sale (bought a few copies of To the Moon to give to friends, but nothing I really wanted), I see a friend playing RimWorld quite literally all the time. Watched CohhCarnage's videos, and a few from NorthernLion, and decided to try it out. Merry Christmas to me. I'm terrible at it, but it's so much fun. Each colony I make lasts longer and longer (I've made 3 or 4 in 10 hours, that's how bad I am), but I have this drive to be as good/cool as the screenshots and videos I see online.

-What's your favorite other game?
Of all time: Betamania IIDX
Currently: Overwatch, WoW

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I'm terrible at most video games. I can pubstomp in Overwatch with friends, and I used to pubstomp in TF2, but when it comes to Civ, I can't win. Binding of Isaac? More like Binding of getting to floor 3 and then losing. Starcraft? Forever low bronze. League/Dota? Aside that I feel Mobas have inherent design flaws, I'll feed all day, erryday.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds are by far the best.

-Misc.
3/4ths Chinese, 1/4th German, from Northern Arizona. Going back to school (Community College) for IT, and going to dabble in some game design courses, to see how I like it. I like gaming communities, so I'll probably frequent these, the Steam forums, and Reddit a lot, but I probably won't be able to engage in any meaningful way.

I purchased a copy of prison architect a WHILE back when it was still in early access, and found that I enjoyed that style of game quite a bit. Then, a little more recently (around last summer) I picked up Factorio and loved the game so much I got over 12 hours of game play in a little under 3 days. Eventually, Rimworld popped up in my suggested on steam and I purchased it through the Ludeon website.

The mods which I perceive to be essential are sometimes the most simple mods, like MadSkills which prevent skill degradation (come on Tynan, don't take away what I grinded so hard for!), and DeadMansClothing which removes the 'D' on looted clothes from corpses (imho, it makes no sense in my survivalist-mentality colony).

Jagged Alliance 2, definitely. Then XCOM, both 1994 and 2012 versions.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I have always enjoyed management games starting from transport tycoon, railroad tycoon, civ, startopia, settlers, banished etc etc. eventually i came across prison architect (i know different studio) and loved it. When I saw RimWorld i assumed the same as many other people have by just looking at the visuals. but as we all know not to judge a book by its cover! I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a different developer and jumped right in.

-What's your favorite other game?

Depends on genre as i have roughly 136 games on steam then it kinda looks like this:

turn based strategy - civ series
rts - C&C generals
fps - bf series
3ps - world of warships
rpg - fallout series (i played the original fallout when it released in 1995)
management game - rimworld (i dont play prison architect anymore due to fact that there are only so many times you can build a prison without working out optimal meta)

Post by: RolanDecoy on January 17, 2017, 04:20:33 AM
Well, I got this game through Steam on by birthday, since I don't like asking people for stuff or spread around wish lists regardless of who and how many times people keep asking for them...I just want friends and family to show up and have a good time, okay? Anywho, people that know me know the safest fallback which is my Steam wish list, and I put this gem on there a few months back.

I really enjoyed the X-Universe (from X: Beyond the Frontier all the way down to X3: Albian Prelude, hated the last one though), loved Space Station 17 on the BEYOND engine, was a LOT of fun. I'm just not much of a multiplayer gamer, but when I do it's role playing (played Artemis Bridge Simulator in TSN as Michael Seer for over a year). But I really loved the idea behind Space Station 17, where one could procedurally create different kind of walls depending on what component one would add to the tile and what tool was used. The objects in the world were more than just tiles with logic, or so it felt. Battlecruiser 3000 A.D is a more acquired taste, but more Star Trek than any other game even Paramount Pictures could roll out at the time (and still haven't to this day...).

The problem I'm having these days is that we have the technology to switch and realistically go from small scale, local sit-on-a-chair-eat-your-dinner and heating-a-room-mechanics to the procedural formation of galaxies and even dimensions, covering everything in between from plant design to interstellar politics and war for the last 2 decades, and somehow we don't see that realized. But that's just my opinion on the game industry...and I went off on a rant, I apologize (but still feel the need not to remove it from this post) ;-)

My most embarrassing moment(s) are along the lines of starting a new game (like this one), and being so focused on getting say a room up, and technology developed, that I completely forget 'ow ya, my colonists need food...' whilst playing in the middle of nowhere on an ice sheet on a min-temp planet without and no heating...

Okay that wasn't true, that's just my most recent 'accomplishment'. My most embarrassing game-related story isn't a picture of me next to a toilet stoned out of my mind halfway between conscious and stuck in laughter, which I hear is still roaming the internet (although I can't seem to find it... If anybody feels interested in looking, LAN-party, Verkeerspark Assen, Netherlands. I think it was 2005 or so).
I guess it would have to be too eager to post a suggestion not realizing that the feature I'm requesting is already in the game, I just couldn't find it. Not as sensational, but I concider that a lot more embarrassing than passing out next to a toilet at a LAN-party with over 2000 people there... Those posts are generally seen a lot more people (or at least on Steam games they tend to be).

I prefer high-fibre breakfast, but when it comes to cereal I like it sweet and crunchy, so I rarely eat cereal for breakfast. Usually, if I have breakfast at all, it's bread, and depending on what's still viable, an egg or salad... Usually just coffee.

As for my ridiculous picture, well, you can try and find the previously mentioned, or maybe you can find my Steam profile and look something up there. Though not pictures of me, I've had that account for over a decade, a decent amount of reviews written, a LOT of screenshots and appropriate captions, some of which serious bug reports, other I find hilarious, might be worth a chuckle. Same handle as I use here.

Hello folks,

New to this forum but have been playing RimWorld for several months and loving(dreading) every minute. Introduced by my brother.

I am Canadian, but I'm not sorry about it.

Thought I'd see what I can learn and potentially contribute to this fantastic game beyond mere silver.

I mostly play rts' and rpgs, but dabble in just about everything of quality with stints in things like WoW or console shooters. Currently playing Stellaris, CoH2, Grim Dawn, and still occasionally dust off Infinity Engine isometrics and Diablo II when the nostalgia strikes.

-What introduced you to RimWorld?
Not sure anymore, it might have been a steam suggestion. But I'm generally interested in simulations that involve uhm...let's say biomes and pawn-interactive behaviors (I actually hold a degree in biology, so it's a major part of an ecologist's and ethologist's curiosity about more or less controllable -and inspectable- environments and creatures to be honest!). Though I never really got into the Sims, probably luckily.

-What's your favorite other game?
Hard to say. There's a lot of storydriven games I really like, I enjoyed the narrative of the MassEffect-trilogy quite alot (even though I can only show for a single complete playthrough :P And for all the haters: I chose the synthesis ending very voluntarily and was happy with it. HA!).
Given playtime and involvement with workshop and/or streams, I'd say my favorites are X-COM: Enemy Within (incl. LW mod) and Cities:Skylines (subscription-addiction). The Shadowrun Returns Collection has a special place in my heart, too.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I like chocolatey or cinnamony crunchy cereals with whole milk. But especially when I'm travelling, I also eat classical porridge (the oats can be a bit coarse, no problem) with a bit of honey and dried fruit and/or nuts and seeds. An enjoyable meal with a nutrition value of at 0.85 I'd say? I can be a bit "tribal" when it comes to nutrition (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optimal_foraging_theory (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optimal_foraging_theory))

-other stuff
Usually I'm quite reluctant to open up forum accounts, but as I am considering to get a bit deeper into modding Rimworld... or making art for mods, I thought this would be a practical decision. And I like practicality, aswell as goal- and solution-oriented approaches. But I'm also a complete noob regarding any coding that goes deeper than superficial R statistics skills and inspecting, maybe editing xml-scripts a little (and even there I'm like 75% of the time "I have no actual idea what I'm doing...Lalalala!").

So, not sure yet where and how to start... but the at least 1-flamed passion might be a boon here ;)

Also, I'm not a native speaker, so if there are wonky terms, phrases or sentence-structures I use, this might come from a brain that is habituated to think in german, which has, in some regards or for some concepts, a more particular or precise expression. If something I write is unclear, please ask for clarification :)

Hi there.
What introduced me? Well, as far as the style of game in general, I was browsing TVTropes and came across the entry for Dwarf Fortress. Some amazing stuff, that. I didn't get the game, though, because the overriding theme was "HOLY SHIT THIS IS HARD" and I'll be honest, I don't like a game kicking my ass right out the gate. Then sometime later, reading the comic Ctrl+Alt+Del, the author did a strip about the game, with a news post  further describing his experience with the game and a link to the main page of its site. I read the post and wanted to know more, so I went to the site and read even more. I loved the sound of it. I also loved that it seemed to be another game in the style of Dwarf Fortress, but without the difficulty "curve" that was more of a "cliff" and a visual style that I wouldn't need to learn how to read. Later, I had the good sense to check if it's on Steam, and here we are.

My other favorite game? Hard to say, it depends on my mood, but I'd go with either Titanfall 2 or the original Halo for PC. I can rock me a king-pistol!

I don't actually have that many, so I think a recent one from just the other night counts: I started a second village for shits an' giggles, yadda yadda raider, capture, nurse back to health, starts wandering about the prison area, which the prisoner that I have in my first game *doesn't* do. Next day I switch back to my first game, and eventually on a lark I check my prisoner of 4 seasons' Health tab, and lo and behold, she's had her leg shot off. WELL NO WONDER SHE'S NOT JOINING. Y'know, that and the low social scores, but whatever.

Best Cereal? Blueberry flavor Tiny Toast. No arguments.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Steam. Glorious Steam. I didn't even know games like this existed outside of my own personal fantasy world. It made me wonder what else in my fantasies actually exists... Good AAA games? Attractive women who enjoy sex? God?
-What's your favorite other game?
Civ V. Nothing forges better friendships than taking over everything he/she built over the past three nights and razing it to the ground.

When I was a little kid, I once sharted while playing Luigi's Mansion. I vividly remember the feeling as the shit populated my underpants. I was out-of-commission for about 15 minutes.

Just a Simple Meal, or some raw potatoes - whatever's closer to me.

Hello all.

Long time lurker and rimworlder. I'm from brisbane Australia. 33years old. Married with 4 (far too many) beautiful kids. I can't get enough of rimworld. My wife is started to roll her eyes when I speak because she is sick of hearing about it......my 4 year old daughter though is such a fan. Daddy why is that cowboy naked? Daddy what's with all the blood and wommits? Daddy why is every one dead (I get this a lot).

I love the game and the middling community. Many thanks for the continuing great experience.

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

It was a random YouTube watch when I was on nightshift new baby duty.

Too many to list but if I had to choose one it would be the baldur''s Gate saga (counts as one??)......that and hearts of iron 4 black ice

I found Rimworld a while ago on YouTube, and decided to buy the game after watching hours of gameplay. I currently have just over 350 hours into the game.

-What's your favorite other game?
Sims 4, it's really the only other game I'm currently playing besides Rimworld.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I had a colony of three people taken down by an elderly raider with dementia and a bad back... Let's say I'm much better at playing now then I was then.

Skip the cereal, toast and eggs are the best. Or eggs and bacon. Or hashbrown and eggs.

Can't remember if I posted on this thread before, or not.  But, hidy ho all!  I backed this game on kick starter, haven't regretted it yet.  I don't always play every release, but I always download each release.

Mostly going to be in the off topic forum, but I'll be here once in a while.

Keep up the great work Ludeon!

Hi.

RimWorld has been on my radar for the longest time, being a heavy Dwarf Fortress player since… well forever (when did the z axis was introduced? can't remember… well, like a year before that). But anything early access does not get much more attention from me. I have been sufficiently shat on by studios before while doing alpha or beta community testing, thank you very much. So usually it's “get it out properly, then we'll see”. But lately DF crashes on me, and had a very difficult (and late) 64bits transition, and for various reasons I haven't played it for over a year.

And for the past days I've been looking (purely by chance) at SovietWomble's videos on RimWorld, and realized… wait, playing DF is like playing early access. Well some kind of weird Duke Nukem-HL3 bastard son version of early access. Kind of.

It's a really bad timing for me to start that kind of game (I really, really don't need another excuse to procrastinate), and I have no money, but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to resist much longer.

Edit: although, it's quite expensive, especially for early access. Still… well… we'll see…

Hi everyone :)

Playing RimWorld since A15, just a couple of hours, really started with A16, 75h so far and no end in sight. That is pretty incredible cause I usually get bored pretty quick with most games nowadays. I never played a game like rimworld before. My main genres are turnbased-strategy/-tactics and Singleplayerrpgs (prefere turnbased systems there as well and Iso but I like modern stuff like Mass Effect or the Witcher as well) Also I love good "Walking Sims". It is nice to just relaxe and enjoy the story now and than. For the last weeks I haven't been playing anything else but Rimworld but I'm looking forward to Tides of Numenera.

Have been reading on the forum quite a while now. Bugs triggered registration ;D but I also like to participate in discussions since Rimworld seems to be a game I'm stuck with :D.

Found someone streaming it on Twitch, thought I'd give it a try.  Best decision ever!

Hi! I'm Potema, I'm a YouTuber from Ireland. Pretty small time and I only really have time for casual uploading because I'm busy in college at the moment studying Visual FX and 3D Technology.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I think I first saw it on the Yogscast. Lewis and Sips were playing it and it just looked so cool, the quirkiness, the survival, the base builder, I loved it! Watched a couple other YouTubers playing and eventually picked it up myself. I love these style of games, I asked Double Eleven for a free key for Prison Architect but they said maybe when I have a little more influence online. I think I only had 200 subscribers when I put that folly towards them. Used to play Theme Hospital to death when I was a kid too and I feel like that shares a lot of similarities with RimWorld, you know, the constant death and all that. (my graveyards get pretty big)
-What's your favorite other game?
I don't want to say Fallout 4 but I kind of have to say Fallout 4. I've played over a week of that in game time. Fuck. It could be better though, I loved Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. While I love the additions to Fallout 4, sometimes it does fall a bit flat. Luckily I love the settlement building mechanic so I guess that's what has kept me going.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Well, RimWorld related anyway, I recently set out to make an animal sanctuary in the jungle. Got attacked by Raiders and two of my colonists lost a leg each. We had no food so I sent one guy out with a caravan to trade with a local settlement. While he was gone one of my colonists died from wounds inflicted by the raiders, his sister then went insane and killed all my animals. A wild Rhinocerous went mad and killed her and then the only other capable colonists I had so the two bed ridden colonists died of malnutrition. Th caravan got back with barely any food and the only remaining colonist (who has Alzheimers)  kept just going into confused dazes between trying to make beer from the ridiculous amount of hops I'd grown. Eventually a raider came along and shot him.
It was worse than the time my entire camp was murdered by a pack of angry beavers.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I don't really eat breakfast cereal, it's too carbohydrate-y for me in the morning. I prefer just some coffee and maybe yoghurt.

Steam queue recommended it to be, plus it had the funniest reviews! The game seemed easy enough that I and my extremely clumsy self would be able to play it A ok(I killed my colony of 5 in two days by heatstrokes, but whatever) Plus I like games where you mange people to do daily routines, but they have some level of autonomy.

-What's your favorite other game?
PC only? I guess the last remnant. I like rpg dungeon crawler like games with an interesting fight system.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I don't remember any super embarrassing gaming stories, although I remember getting confused when Pony Island tried to trick me by pretending my friend was sending me PMs from steam, but notifications kept showing the message was from me. I was like" the hell, I'm obviously not sending myself messages, why is my name displayed there?"

Hello RimWorld Fourm

I guess I'm here to hang out and make mods...

I think it was a random Steam advisement that introduced me to RimWorld and it was the specific comparison to Dwarf Fortress which initially hooked me. I saw a few gameplay videos and read the description. I was hooked. I don't remember what hooked me to this style of game. I've always been partial to Rogue-Likes, Permadeath, and Fun.

My favorite other games would have to be Fall from Heaven II and FTL. I once lost a round of Smash Brothers that was so intense that I literally threw the controller on the ground, smashing it to pieces. Finally, Mini-Wheats.

Post by: The Man with No Name on April 04, 2017, 10:25:56 AM
I bought this game eight days ago and already have 89 hours of play.

I've been playing video games for over 35 years and I have to say this is a fantastic game and right up there with the best I've played.

The last few months, all the games I've played - top-rated games - have left me frustrated because they have significant game design flaws, but, so far, I haven't felt that way about this game at all, which is an indicator of a really well-designed game.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: Having now played 334 hours of this game, I would like to amend what I wrote. I think it's a good game with some potential, but, since it's not in its finished state, I think it prudent at the current time to suspend judgement on where I'd rank it in the overall list of games I've played.

Bay12 Forums Rimworld thread. At first, thought that Rimworld is a cheap, dumbed-down copy of Dorf Fortress, but it's actually a quite fun game!

Dwarf Fortress, Crusader Kings II, etc. I also started playing Rome: Total War (the first one) and I love it!

My bestfriend introduced this game to me cause he knows how I liked survival and construction games.

-What's your favourite other game?
I also like RTS games like starcraft 2 and the Command and Conquer series. FPS aren't bad as well.

-What's your most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I was playing with my friends red alert 2.

So I had to support my allies with nothing but a battalion of G.I.. My friends laughed at me the whole time.

A friend posted a random comment on Facebook back in late December that caught my interest. I decided to check out the game, and almost immediately got sucked into the modding side of things. I've been modding more than playing ever since.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Reviews, fandom passion and comments about Rimworld online got my attention. I've been playing computer sims since the late 1970s. My first foray into coding was rewriting a game called Taipan in BASIC in 1977 or 78 to make it multiplayer.

I really like sims, but as a writer I am also passionate about storytelling. The intersection of gaming and storytelling makes for good immersion and fascinates me. I see it as the next stage in literature.

My attention span is short with non-immersive games. I want to feel invested in the characters and/or the process. A first-person adventure, for example, holds my attention longer than a puzzle game.

-What's your favorite other game?
Varies. I play Civ V a reasonable amount. But also RPGs and MMOs, a bit of chess & go, some strategy/war games too. There's always a jeu-du-mois on my computer I play until mastered, then look for something new. However, I sometimes go back to old favourites like Civ and Lux Deluxe.

I tend to prefer turn-based games over RTS because I like to be able to ponder each move and I like strategic challenges. I was really tempted by Prison Architect because it shares similar mechanics and design elements to RW, but I wasn't sure I'd like the political context of for-profit prisons (the old leftie in me coming out). The Alpha 17 update convinced me to get RW. To which point, I have not played it yet. It's just DLing now.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I have a dozen of those from when I first learned to play World of Warcraft and had no idea how to interact with others or do the game basics. I stumbled along for quite a while, a noob far too long for others to want to be in my company (and trying to solo dungeons rather unsuccessfully).
Probably my greatest computer gaming disappointment was in playing Spore, however. Such promise, such a let down.
My most embarrassing paper game story is when I entered a Barbarossa (SPI) tournament at a game club in the mid-1970s without fully understanding the mechanics and got soundly beaten within about six or seven turns while the rest of the players watched and laughed. Loudly.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Who eats breakfast? Well, I drink tea. With a bit of milk. Nothing more needed.

I have been gaming since I can remember. Chess (since about 9 or 10), go, Diplomacy, Risk and others (including many, many S&T, GDW and Avalon Hill wargames) pre-computer. Then a wide variety of games since, albeit with a preference to sim games and city building games, generally solo. I have even been a playtester for board games (SPI) and some computer games.

I am currently a semi-retired writer/editor/blogger with a passion for Machiavelli, ukulele, Shakespeare, science and technology. And I look forward to immersing myself into RW to feast on its stories.

Gears of War. Despite being a shot-'em-up game, it does take strategizing and communication with one's partner to play properly.

Hi all, I've been following Rimworld for some time now, ever since I first saw a YouTuber by the name of Quill18 doing a series of Let's Plays of it. Now that I've bought it (about a month ago) I've decided it's about time I joined the community and introduced myself, so on gaming forums I go by the name of Seriously Unserious.

Wherever I go, I tend to get a reputation for being willing to chip in with help when and where I can, and interject a little humour every now and then. I'd love to continue that here with this community built up around a great game.

Hi,

just recently (two months ago) bought the game after my brother introduced it to me. Since I am a student and lack money, I do own a rather medium-budget-notebook which has not aged that well the last few months. So I am only able to play games with low system requirements and happily for me, Rimworld is such a game. I had my share of fun with indie games and some older titles the last few years.
Prior to my studies I mainly played RTS and RPGs, especially Starcraft 2, the Total War series, the Witcher series and the Elder Scrolls. Most embarrassing gaming-related story? That would be in huge parts the community of League of Legends I think.

-What introduced me?
I saw some of the game-play on YouTube when the game was in alpha 15 or 14. I picked  copy of the game up when it was in alpha 16. The game looked quite interesting, the freedom play-style and overall quirkiness enticed me to buy.
As a kid I played the sims and mine-craft, so I enjoy being able to build and design intricately, but I also have an interest in drama. This game ties those two together perfectly.

-Favorite other game?
Skyrim, Definitely. Although very different from Rimworld, Skyrim has an intense backstory that I absolutely love.

-Embarrassing gaming story?
hmm... can't think of any really for me tbh. I do however remember a friend playing through COD-WAW on veteran difficulty, he got to the end of a mission and died. His re-spawn was on top a tower where he was getting constantly hit by a mortar. He had to restart the mission over and got pretty mad.

I figure now that I've been here for almost a year, it's time I post in this thread, right? :p

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I've always been hooked on hard games.  The more effort you have to put into something, the more rewarding it is when you actually succeed at it.  Even games like Ninja Gaiden for the NES were fun, as I could never beat it as a child (finally did it for the first time at 28 or so?). 
Very early on, maybe 1995, I was turned on to Strategy games.  Warcraft, Starcraft, Chess, and Master of Orion 2 were my gold standard.  Every other RTS game that comes out I immediately compare to Warcraft/Starcraft, and almost all come up lacking.  I was on the Chess Team in high school, and was far and away the best among them.  As such, all of my favorite games today have an element of strategy to them.
After a while, I was turned on to Roguelike games, with my first introduction being Chocobo's Dungeon 2 for the playstation in.... 1999-ish.  Procedurally generated games that have very real consequences for failure (but lacking certain aspects that make them true roguelikes, such as unidentified potions etc.) were more popular, and close enough that I could enjoy them.  Izuna, One Way Heroics, Crypt of the Necrodancer, Diablo 2's Hardcore mode, and FTL scratched my itch for this, and for the most part, are still fun to play today.  Games like Binding of Isaac are not my cup of tea at all.
During Warcraft III's high point (2004ish), it was popular to make Survival style maps.  You get pitted against an infinite wave of baddies, each one stronger than the last, and your goal is to make it as far as you can before dying (Good maps), or stabilize and build the ultimate tower and never lose (Most maps).
One day on Steam, Rimworld is recommended to me by the system.  A Procedurally generated, strategy, survival, permadeath game with a balls-steep learning curve.  I put it on the wish list and wait for it to go on sale.  After a few months of no-sale, the conversation of Rimworld begins in the chat room for Anti-Idle: The Game on Kongregate.  "Oh man!  I've been eyeballing that game for a while!  Is it worth the price tag?".  When it was shown to me that I could scale the difficulty to where I liked it, turn on permadeath, and was guaranteed to die over and over again as I learned the game, I bought it within the hour.

Presently, 348 hours logged in the game.  No regrets yet.

-What's your favorite other game?
It's a tossup.  Fire Emblem and Disgaea are both strategy based, but it's too easy to game the system and steamroll.  At that point, it's less SRPG and more JRPG-with-your-favorite-units.  Master of Orion 2 and Warcraft 3 are amazing, but dated.  In the end, I'm gonna go with Crypt of the Necrodancer.  The music is amazing, and it's a rhythm roguelike with simple rules that you always lose and think "I could have done that better" almost instantly.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I put over a thousand hours into League of Legends.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Cinnamon Toast Crunch is the only right answer here.

And/or put up ridiculous pictures, as you see fit.
I like to draw.  Girls, specifically.

Hiya! I'm Triscy. I cast video games on Twitch, and have spent many a night staying up until 3 AM or later playing RimWorld. Have about 200 hours at the time of writing.

Not very good at the game, and don't tend to permadeath, but I love playing it and really have enjoyed when folks've dropped by. Always fun discussions in the community, so I thought I'd drop by the forums here.

i'm new in the forum, and actually fairly new to this game as well (just 200 hours  :P)

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

Actually saw the game on Steam, saw the reviews and instantly knew it had to buy it, because though i'm not a huge fan of survival games, the strategy/ decision making part is something i love on games.

-What's your favorite other game?

So many... but currently at the top: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky series. I prefer strategy games and JRPG style games.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

I actually cannot remember just one ;D

Reading the silly "intro yourself" sticky, I have nothing better to do...... :-*

I float around various game boards, and others..........

I am 39 years young, got my 22 year wedding anniversary SAT, and am addicted to gaming.

I started with the TRS80 COCO, Atari, Tandy1000, nes, snes, xbox, et all

Here lately, I have been on an "indie game" and sub $20USD game spree.

Not sure, but I think, I found Rimworld thru PCgamer, RPS, or just Steam.    AS I age, I find myself drifting away from my FPS games, toward turn based, or strategic pause type games.  Getting old sucks.
   
Anyway, that is enough personally identifiable information for now.   Greetings!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Well it all started when I first got Cultures 2, I loved that game, it had pretty, cartoony graphics had a somewhat deep Economy and had a lot of focus on building up your town over Training and killing but you can also focus on training troops and forging weapons of war.

-What's your favorite other game?
It has to be Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge, Specifically the mod Mental Omega that adds in a lot more troops, research, and even a new Faction and 3 new Sub-Factions.

Hello, I am Dargaron. I live in VT. History major.

-Shout out to Christopherodd and Marbozir on Youtube: I watched their Let's Plays on Rimworld and bought the game afterwards, just before Alpha 17.

-I am also slogging my way through the Darkest Dungeon. Between the two: Much stress. So wow. Many dead pawns/heroes.

-My worst failure in Rimworld was probably the time I had a brainfart and sent every pawn to retrieve a Masterwork Granite Pool Table from a nearby settlement (it was heavy enough that I needed all available pawns to carry it back). In my defense, I really wanted to test out the new missions. But that defense didn't work when I got a raid while everyone else was a day and a half away. Stockpile got set on fire, all the workbenches/furniture got wrecked, and there was no food for winter.

I had not much interesting stories around it, exept slaying all my animals when neutralising a toxic ship (these mood penalties...)

Vendui,
name's Bolgfred. Please, don't question it.

I play RimWorld and comment things in this forum. Sometimes I
do some things that could be called modding or butchering, but mostly I be asking questions.

-What introduced you to RimWorld?
I was baited by Steam. They said, RimWorld is like dwarf fortress. But this was not true. In DF there are no muffalos. It was fake news.

-What's your favorite other game?
The three big games in my life were KKND:Krossfire, Diablo 2 and Dwarf fortress.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
About 15 years ago I played on my computer in the basement while my pet rabbit was running around in the garden. I promised my mum to keep an eye on him. Suddenly he jumped into the hole in front of the basement windows, banged aganst the glass and died. It was a giant rabbit, so the windows got a little crack. Afterward we crafted a bone totem out of it. All craftsdwarfship was of the highest quality. But it was only rabbit bone.

Post by: Yeol on August 08, 2017, 08:56:23 AM
I'm Yeol the Clumsy (real name Michiel Van Loey), Belgian 55 year young gamer and modeller (model railway layout). I started gaming in the '80ies (King's Quest, Lazy Larry,...) and remained true to non-shooter games. Clumsy, because I'm litterally clumsy with mice, keyboards or other console stuff, which is often a real handicap during stressful situations (Skyrim fails are numerous)

Rimworld is right in the line of challenging games I like to play, with depth in problem solving and decision taking. Perma-dead has always been the way I played games, even when it's not an actual option: 1 life, 1 chance, with 1 exception: Planescape Torment (you known, you have to die to solve some riddels, which took me ages to discover since dying was the end of the game for me.).

Favorite other games at this moment are: Crusader Kings II, Cities Skylines, Transport Fever, Skyrim, but have kind memories of Baldur's Gate, Morrowind, Railroad Tycoon and Ceasar II.

Embaresing moments? Failing is part of the fun, also in Crusader Kings II, the game that excells in thowing you all it has for you to loose. I gamed for many weeks to finely being Empress of the Brittania. I was proud being the most powerful body in the game world. When suddenly, out of the blue, a bastard son murdered me, and took all of my titles in 1 blow. I lost it all in 1 second. Game over...

And that is Rimworld: the stories of the looser are more fun than one of the victorer.

By the way, I'm not a cereal man, but give me a sandwich with fine Belgian chocolate paste and a strong black coffee in the morning, and I'm happy for a day.

Back when I was younger, the only non-flash game in the house was a copy of Civ IV BtS. That got me hooked on the strategy genre in general, and from there I found myself branching out into EU, Total War, Anno... And yes, all the classics; CoD WaW, BF3/BF4, Bioshock, SIMS...

:) Hello people of this forum, I have been dwelling this site for quite some time now and have finally decided to join. This game has consumed my free time and I am urged to start modding and share some of my ideas.

My favorite part of this game is letting mad rabbits or squirrels chase my well-armed people into their homes in fear; Sometimes I like to watch them be murdered by the rodents as they try to flee. Starting out as cannibal pirate Eskimos is also a favorite.

I am a very nice person but I have trouble communicating my thoughts

I saw the questions but I'm not very good at answering them. I am a person who likes all sorts of games, and especially love building up colonies and civilizations in games, even card or board games. It's fun watching it grow. I found rimworld because I spend too much  time browsing the Upcoming Game Realeases tab on steam and I found rimworld and was very captivated because I have always wanted to play dwarf fortress but I'm a visual person and the ASCII turned me off of it.

Thanks for reading. Cheers!

I guess since I joined the forums today and started playing a week ago, I should add my comments.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I've loved management style games for years.  I love starting with little or nothing and building something.  The fact that you can tell a story with the game is only another factor.  I found it just checking on Steam for simulation/base-building games.

-What's your favorite other game?
It varies depending on my mood. 

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I refuse to admit to accidentally sending a single pawn to a "trade fair" only to have him captured by slavers."

Post by: gipothegip on September 01, 2017, 04:53:44 PM
I haven't been online in forever, only made one post to report a bug, and have lurked since. But this is an interesting game that makes for some interesting stories, even if it's mostly pseudo random events. It can be very entertaining too as this game doesn't take itself too seriously.

Anyway, I want to join the discussion, especially as the other forums I visit have been lacking lately  :(

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

IIRC somebody was talking about it on the 7 Days to Die forums, and, as somebody who enjoys strategy and management games from time to time (as well as being interested by the concept behind Rimworld), decided to look up Rimworld and watched a couple of let's plays. Nothing too intensive or spoiling, but enough to know what kind of game I was getting into before I bought it.


-What are your favorite games? (This is probably going to be quite a list)

7 Days to Die is easily one of my favorite games, at least for the past couple of years. It's my most played game on Steam.

I really enjoy the Fallout series (except for 3) as well as the Elder Scrolls series.

Online gaming-wise I'd say Overwatch. I used to like Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 2 & 3, as well as World at War and the first Black Ops.

The PS 2 Ratchet and Clank games were amazing.

The older Command and Conquer games were great, so was Age of Empire 2. I also really enjoyed Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 when I was younger.

DOOM is a classic (the new one is pretty good too). Just forget the 3rd game happened.

I think that's everything :)


-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

I'd have to say how I used to rage when I was growing up. Had some anger management problems back then. I once smashed my PS 3 controller in response to a few bad matches in Modern Warfare 3. It seems so stupid now, looking back. Like, seriously, I void my bowels over that game for some reason, but I kept playing (I did grow to like the game and not rage so much after that incident).


-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

The healthy kind, at least the somewhat healthy kind. Stuff like raisin bran, or the Kashi stuff with almonds and granola. The super sugary cereals are garbage. But cereal really isn't that exciting to me.


-What other interests do you have?

Other than gaming, of course, I really enjoy comedy and music. I also have an interest in computers (such as programming and hardware), and have recently been reading some books on physics (like Michiu Kaku and Neil DeGrasse Tyson).

Comedy wise I mostly enjoy satire and farce. A good parody is quite enjoyable as well.

When it comes to music I listen to all shades of metal and some rock. I also like listening to industrial music, some forms of EDM (like hardstyle) & dubstep (I really like glitch hop, gang step, and  drum and bass influenced stuff), and some classical / symphonic stuff.

Well since i have been lurking around as an anonymous guest in the forums for a long while. My name is Kirby23590 but you can call me Kirby and no that's not my real name i just like the name  ;)

I'm a gamer at heart who grew up with the Sony Playstation 1 since i was a small child filled with many great ( and not so great ) games and hidden gems through my dad's collection. Then i got the playstation 2 and then the playstation 3 and i stopped there.
Now i buy games from steam including Rimworld since now i became a PC Gamer now.

I also run around youtube watching mostly video game related and listening to music videos my favorite channels are mostly gaming related but sometimes i also go watch anime related channels. Sometimes if the internet is not available
i'm somewhat also an movie fan. though i prefer animated films than live-action though there are some exceptions ( Mad Max, Rambo First Blood, the First Spider man Movie, Aliens, Starship troopers and the entire Harry Potter film trilogy etc.)
I mostly watched them in television mostly though HBO and some other movie channels.

Sometimes i read some web comics around or run around in wikipedia.

I may be a growing man yet i still act like an child or an teenager and sometimes i throw mini-tantrums since i'm a special person but i will try my best to control myself.

Somewhere in 2014 or 2015 in youtube? I was running around in there watching Dwarf fortress related videos ( i think ) until i stumbled across in the video suggestion showed Rimworld and showed some attention to me until 2016 Watching Rimworld showed more interest to me and of course when it jumped to steam early access i immediately purchased the Game!

Of course I'm a fan of management games ( Dwarf Fortress, Evil genius, Theme Hospital ) tactical and strategy games ( XCOM Both the 2012 Reboot and the 1994 Original, Starcraft and Warcraft 3 and Command and Conquer ) and building games in general ( Minecraft, Terraria and Rollercoaster tycoon ) but also the modding scene which brought me to Rimworld.

Quote
-What's your favorite other game?
Well that's a hard question. i would say dark souls but why not more than just one!

- The Classic Spyro Trilogy in the Playstation 1. My childhood!
- The Fallout Series Mostly New Vegas, well i used to be a fan until Four jumped out which divided the whole fanbase... so i just moved on.
- Rollercoaster Tycoon. Mostly the second game but the first one and third were also great but the Second was my childhood! ahhh great memories. 
- Dark souls. Well duh even my steam profile has the elite knight's face on it, also Demon's souls deserves a special mention :D
- Terraria. Really fun to run around fighting many things and exploring and of course the creeper costume! ( This user has beated the Golem without wings before the 1.3 came out. Since he prefers running around in foot instead )
- Battlefield Bad Company 1 for the PS3. I remember this and still remember the characters. why did they throw away the legionaries' mercenaries in the sequel they were more interesting to fight until they made it just for another generic bad guy instead? i wish they made a Third sequel to BFBC. Which is why i wasn't interested in Battlefield 1 :/
- Super Mario World ( Super Mario Advance 2 GBA ) Ahhhh i remember that my dad was hiding a SNES in his cabinet but i was disappointed that SMW wasn't there But at least it had Mario-All-Stars (Without SMW...) Not until i got a GBA from my Mom's Friend and wished for SMW in Christmas and boy i was happy when i got this game, i say this is the best mario game in my opinion.
- Far Cry 2. Yes it isn't FC3 but it was not meant for everyone and boy it was one heck of a ride. i say i like this more than Far cry 3 sorry Vaas ( i hated the protagonist in 3 ).
- Minecraft. I remember encountering this in the youtube frontpage back in the days when it was young. but now since i bought it when it became popular and still remembering my noob days and my greatest creations i built there...
- Cave Story. One of the most interesting games i played for a while. good and memorable characters. and overall good gameplay.
- Dwarf fortress. Well the !!FUN!! from that game comes from a werebeast eating my dwarves or accidentally flooding the fortress and the !!FUN!! In Rimworld comes from a thrumbo destroying everything or a toxic fallout happening somewhat early (Thanks Randy!)

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Hi,

As it's for me (and propably not only for me), I came here from Dwarf Fortress. The reason I started playing it was because it was advertised as "the most difficult game ever made", so despite the fact that high fantasy setting doesn't appeal to me that much, I decided: I MUST try it. Well... I won't say I was dissapointed. I simply felt insulted when after a few dozens hours it turned out to be a VERY easy game and the only difficulty was UI and controls being totally screwed. I imagine that propably many people won't agree, but in my opinion even... Anno 1503 is more difficult than DF in terms of gameplay. So I simply left DF, but I still wanted to play the game which was exactly like my first imagination about DF. And here I am, finally happy. Turns out DF-style game can have an easy controls, nice UI, and, most importantly, RimWorld IS difficult! ;D ;D ;D

I got introduced to rimworld by a friend who sent some awesome pictures and stories randomly to our discord which included strange thrumbo tragedies and bionic eyes

a bit about me im a 20 year old locksmith im excessively interested in tanks (the kind that have cannons attached) and ive been a tank gunner during my service in the finnish military which also included shooting with assault rifles therefore im tilted at rimworlds shooting mechanics often :P (which doesnt matter tbh)
On top of that i also like hunting birds and spending weeks or days at my familys summer cottage which during the winter includes some rimworldy weather.

What i like most about rimworld is the struggle to survive in difficult conditions while having all the tools availible to overcome the struggle its very rewarding in my opinion and therefore ive played roughly 80 hours so far and steadily increasing.
So far havent 'won' the game but i consider the journey twice as interesting as the ending.

Hello Everyone !   

Firstly want to say how much I LOVE Rimworld!! I am in my early thirties and have been playing strategy and rpgs since I was a kid.  I absolutely love rinworld it's my favorite game and I'm playing it all the time.   To me this game is the perfect mesh of dog and strategy , so entertaining and often ridiculous .  I bought rimworld on a whim and am so happy with it.

Hi there, ok i'll do it short, I'm a pro painter, 37 years old (too old?, nah i love gaming!), i knew Rimworld by steam suggestions when i was on vacations so i watched some videos of let's play, and i don't regret the money i invested in it ! really amazing game, i really like to challenging myself versus the ai ! esp Cassandra that i hate as hell haha ! i like 2000's games in general esp the AD&D Baldur's gate series and Neverwinter Nights; also some 2010's good games (i 'm very picky when i buy a game, i usually expect good quality and good content, f*ck amazing graphics, i want content ! ) so Rimworld as been made for me !
Still alpha but so good, Thanks Tynan for all the effort you put in the game!
Thanks as well to the community, and all the modders !
Have a good one ! love guys !

Well, firstly, Tynan thank you for creating a great game and a, well, decent community I suppose? Sorry, haven't spent much time here to rate the community yet, don't take this the wrong way.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I was trying to play DF for a long time but to no avail. I simply couldn't get used to the interface. Then I see a random suggested video on Youtube about this game, it looks like a more accessible version of Dwarf Fortress, just in space. So I pirated it and played it a few times, finally giving up after a depressing but memorable Tribal run. I doubt I will ever have an experience like that again. It was the smack middle of winter, low on food, Pirates attacked my starting tribe of 5 and my female space refugee who was armed with a bolt action rifle. The siege lasted for a while, and the survival instinct was real. Ultimately, we were victorious, but at the cost of half the village. And then, starvation did the rest in. The game sat around on my hard drive for a while now and I have tried the game again just this month and now I'm back into it.

-What's your favorite other game?
The classic Fallouts, New Vegas, Jagged Alliance 2, Morrowind, Baldurs Gate to an extent, Crusader Kings 2, This War of Mine, Planescape Torment, Doom, Civilization, Darkest Dungeon, Mount & Blade and all of its expansions, Bad Rats, you know, the good stuff. Most of them are pirated however, I live in poverty and I can't afford them, the only reason I even own a laptop is because of the money I inherited from my late grandmother, but I'm not here to talk about my sob story of a life.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Every time I play a competitive multiplayer game nowadays is a story of its own, unless I really get lucky.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Reese's Puffs, eat 'em up.

To add onto this, I am just a 21 year old Serbian guy that drinks and smokes too much, and sunflower seeds have become my main way of nutrition. The only thing I'm missing is an Adidas tracksuit and I'd fit the stereotype just right, but I prefer leather. No, I do not eat babies, nor do I attend genocidal operations on daily basis. Contrary to popular belief I do not live in a hut in some tribe, and as far as I am aware I have not chased off or murdered any outsiders as soon as they stepped into our borders although I can't confirm this due to having permanent amnesia every time I drink, but please do mail me as many 7.62x39 ammunition boxes, AKs and accordions as humanly possible, a bear family is trying to break into my house and I think my dog is collaborating with them, don't ask what the accordions are for. While you're at it please inform Comrade Putin that I have burned through my daily supply of Vodka and I might need seconds.

I am a minor fan of Anime or "Manime" as they call them such as JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Berserk, Fist of the North Star, Cory in the House, Shrek, Airplane Instruction Manuals from the 80's, and Boku No Pico. I especially recommend the last one, only true men can endure it.

Shitposting and jokes aside, I aspire to direct and write two cartoons in my lifetime, a children's one, and an adult one. The chances of that are pretty much a zero, due to my endless lack of funds, aaaaaand due to the fact my country still thinks anime is just for kids, let alone cartoons.

As for who I am, well again, I'm just a guy. I have my likes and dislikes, I have my hobbies, so, basically just like everyone else, though I prefer not to talk about them due to possibly instigating an argument. I speak fluent Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, Semi-Fluent English although that is due to my accent getting in the way, I know some Macedonian and Bulgarian, currently I only know how to curse in Russian, and I used to speak German pretty freaking fluently but that just... Disappeared from my brain, I guess I really wasn't into it.

I don't know if I'm an Autist or a Psychopath, I don't have the money to get either confirmed or not, but I know I am not Insane because I question my sanity about 10 times a day and I am pretty sure actually Insane people lack the self awareness in that regard.

Now that I have successfully ensured that about 99% of you will avoid me like the plague and the remaining 1% is going to send hitmen after me, I can conclude this post.

P.S: The part about the bears wasn't a joke, send help.

Post by: Daniell on October 26, 2017, 10:04:54 AM
I was introduced by Rimworld by someone who said it was "like Dwarf Fortress in space". Turns out I like it just as much as Dwarf Fortress, despite the lack of vertical space and babyshields.

Dwarf Fortress is probably my favorite other game. Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead is pretty awesome, too, though. And ADoM. Roguelikes in general are a love of mine.

Embarrassing gaming-related story? Well... there would be the time I flooded my Dwarf Fortress fort because I turned on the water flow to the well while some dorf was sleeping in the last gap in the cistern wall. But I'm not sure whether that's embarrassing for me or the dwarves.

Breakfast is for morning people. Give me coffee and stay out of my way.

By the way, Slava: Difference between an autistic and a psychopath is this: Psychopaths can understand social subtext and use it just as easily as any other person; they just don't care about other people's welfare. Autistics really suck and understanding and using social subtext, but once they know about what other people are thinking and feeling, they care as much as anybody does. If you have a conscience (and it's not a simulation), you're not a psychopath; if you have normal social skills (and didn't have to work your butt off to learn them), you're not autistic.

I'm autistic, by the way. It mostly means I'm socially oblivious, detail-oriented, and get absolutely fascinated with one thing at a time. I started playing Rimworld a little under three weeks ago, and Steam says I have 272 hours in it. That's autism for ya. Oh, and the "socially oblivious" thing--if I do or say something that's annoying and I'm clueless about it, please clue me in before I drive you nuts... thanks!

That's the thing, I can identify traits, or "symptoms" from both cases. But I don't want to derail the thread in order to talk about myself of all things, I hate making myself look like an attention whore. If you do want to talk about this, or talk about anything at all, just message me or something, making friends is a pretty good thing I think. Though it might take about 5 days for me to respond, I'll lose internet in about maybe 10 minutes until the first of November.

--what introduce you to rimworld?--
Basically I was on steam and checking recommended games than I saw rimworld, checked the game and watched gameplay a about it than I downloaded it :P .

Stronghold Crusader! I m playing this game since my childhood so it has special place for me.
Company of Heroes series,Child of Light,Battlefield series, medal of honour, this war of mine, last of us, nfs most wanted( old one not remastered), dead space series (3 was not my favorite), resident dil series (Tbh 5 was ok but 6? Meh it had too much actions but 7 is fine gonna try it out with VR), Tekken 6 ,Civ V

--Most embarrassing moment while playing?--
I was playing tekken 6 online and beaten down with 1 combo from character that I thought weak :|.

Hey guys,

I go by Karnayna in most games I play, Karn is fine though.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Well, RimWorld is probably my first for a start, I saw some youtube videos and streams from Aavak, Yeti and Quill18 and decided to give it a try. 700+ hours later...

-What's your favorite other game?
World of Warcraft, if you get the reference i'm a Wrath baby. Server: Alonsus-EU -  Class: Holy Paladin,

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Well I used to raid on Warcraft and living in Scotland it's quite cold, that has earned me the nickname cold-hands for complaining about having cold hands while raiding. Not so much embarrassing but I couldn't think of something embarrassing.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Coco-Pops. (My inner child just can't help itself)

Also, I can't seem to start new topics, can't see anything about restrictions and I have a bug report to post.

Can someone help?

Edit: Nevermind, seems i needed to post in a discussion first before starting a topic. YOu should perhaps put this in the forum rules Tynan ;)

Hello everyone, I'm Bolty (real name Scott) from the UK. I'm a fan of RimWorld and I am also a huge weather geek.

- What introduced you to RimWorld?
YouTube. I literally just randomly clicked on someone's video of RimWorld. After watching a few videos I was really quite hooked into the game and wanted to give it a try.

- What's your favourite other game?
GTA and The Sims.

- Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
In high school I was completely oblivious to Call of Duty. Knowing my look I had to be asked about it literally right in front of my whole class, and when I didn't know anything about it, my popularity quickly hit rock bottom, haha. Even today mind you, I still don't really know much about it. It's never a game I got hooked into.

- What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
It would have to be Rice Krispies for me.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Youtube. I saw one of the trailers and inmediately attracted me to the game. I did played a bit with a pirated copy (I'm always suspicious of alphas), and a couple of days later bought it.

Quote
-What's your favorite other game?

Hard to choose. I'm a big fan of visual narrative and storytelling, so a good single player, story heavy game wins my heart. For that part, I'm in love of Naughty Dog's work.

But of course, there is "The Secret of Monkey Island". And you can't compete with "The Secret of Monkey Island"!!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Saw the game a couple of years ago, decided to see if it went anywhere. Recently I coaxed myself into buying it. It was a good buy. Almost as good as premium toilet paper.

-What's your favorite other game?
Dunno. I binge games, currently binging Rimworld and Dirty Bomb.Both games lack TP in their base forms, but I make do.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Played "Spooky's house of Horrors" or something like that with a friend. A wild coffe cup appears! Corn used Screech! Later that day, Corn ran out of PP for Screech, so he switched to "Scream like a girl".

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I have a friend that told me about his party and their traits in this game. That, and the ability to replace a person's limbs and senses with robotic upgrades, throw them in some brotherhood-of-steel-esq power armor, give them a mini-gun, and cryo them until needed like some crazy Kurt Russel 'Soldier' shit pretty much sold me.

-What's your favorite other game?

Fallout, forever and always. Even tactics, I miss being able to park a humvee on a super mutant and have my people bash him with sticks. Also, Kenshi for the open-world base building and diversity of experience and options. And by diversity of options, I mean going rogue.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

I played Neverwinter Nights in the RP section as a player and a DM over a decade, so.. this one could get long, drawn out, and awkward.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

I can't eat breakfast, I get sick every time. Except at the galley when I was in the Navy, but I think that got a pass because it wasn't really food.


Outside of all of that, my name's Drew, I'm an employment specialist and benefits planner for a local mental health association. I'm also on the city council in my home town, a modest 16,000 people strong. I was a personnel specialist in the Navy and I love games that let me vent and create. Rimworld is good for both. I enjoy a long game, so I have been looking forward to vehicles and more mobility in my bases to move throughout the world.

It has to be ck2. Love the story and strategy parts.

I was first in some sort of military school thing. Where most people where healthy and stuff. I saw myself as a real game pro/nerd compered to my most of my classmates. then I went to colleges to study IT. I saw my new classmates my little gamers ego broke and I became the noob.

Consider this my introduction.

Rimworld is one of the few alphas that I decided I would probably not get burned for buying, unlike so many these days. I am quite impressed with the continued responsiveness from Tynan which I find very encouraging for the future of this game.

In my day job, I am an Engineer, thus the world is quite Black and white to me and I like to think I see solutions to problems, regardless of their existence or not. I can at times come across as a stubborn A-hole, but it's only because I leap to defend the things I hold to be dear or true very readily. Needless to say, I'm working on this quality to hoping make it more defender of the weak and less a copy of Archer.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I literally stumbled upon it in the Steam Store, so I researched it and found gameplay. I became intrigued, and thus bought the game. I was immediately hooked. I have over 250 hours on RimWorld already on Steam, and I even bought a copy for my friend.
-What's your favorite other game?
Either Darkest Dungeon (my profile picture) or the FATE series by WildTangent. I love Dungeon Crawlers, and both of them are just so amazing. FATE in terms of nostalgia, and DD in terms of style, grit, and difficulty.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I don't really have any I can think of. I'm a boring person. :D
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Apple Cinnamon Cheerios are the best. Whoever says otherwise is crazy.

But other than that, hello!

My name is FDG, but my real name is Sebastian. I live in the United States and am currently 16 years of age. I am a junior in high school and an aspiring Chemical Engineer/Biochemist. I love RimWorld for the challenge and Critical Thinking Skills needed (for me, at least) to overcome certain situations.

Like when the heat wave comes and my fridge is in the developing stages.

Anyway, I hope you all are doing well, and I hope to see you all on this forum often.

Hey, I'm new here... sorta. I've been lurking for a while.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
The Sims came first for me, but had I never played that I'm not sure I'd have considered Rimworld. I stumbled into Rimworld on the steam discovery queue. The customizability of both Sims and Rimworld are my favorite thing in pc gaming. They each have their features but it's the ability to have a game tell a story based on all the tools you create and give to it, and of course the resource management and spontaneous drama that draws me in.

-What's your favorite other game?
See above. I like TS2 the most, it's the most flexible and looks the best out of the four main titles. Too many hours spent making countless mods & custom content for it, building houses, creating elaborate backstories for my witches, werewolves, muggles...

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I have a knack for missing an obvious button, so occasionally I'm making a new piece of cc or mod for TS2 I end up in the discord asking for help and somebody will throw together an mspaint-edit screencap with the obvious button circled in firetruck red and surrounded by arrows. It's happened a few times...

Hello there.
I'm Dullahan, an irish living a long time in germany now, still laughing living in a town called “Food“.

What introduced you to Rimworld?

Well, simply Steam. It has shown me Rimworld over months in shop, based on my recent buys... and at one point I decided to dig for more information. Instant fell in love seeing a game like a combo from Ftl and DF.
So I finally bought it in January this year and started lurking here, as poster before.

Whats your favorite other game?

Based on played time: I wasted most lifetime for EU4.
Love deep simulation games wich are easy to learn, but hard to master.
My first games were Settlers I, Warcraft I and Transport Tycoon. Still playing last one these days.

Most embarassing Game-related story?

Well... my wife once watched a Slender-Letsplay by a german dude, I came in, looked at here screen and the german dude runs straight into Slenderman.
Nearly shat my pants, while my wife was laughing bout german dude, my wet-pant-brother in spirit.
Never touched this game, but started watching german dude on YouTube.

Best breakfest-cereal?
Honey frosted mini wheats, ofc



So, I have to say, I really enjoyed Rimworld since today, and Im looking happy in a great future with this game :3

Hey there I just discovered RimWorld I heard of ii a year ago but because it was early access or so I stayed away until now.

- What introduced you to RimWorld?
Dwarf Fortress being unplayable 2 years+ into the game even with all the precautions because its not multi-threaded so always interested in modern alternatives. RimWorld is of course mentioned a lot in the DF community.

- What's your favourite other game?
Dwarf Fortress and Paradox Games (Hoi3 BICE and Victoria 2 but the others too).

- Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I backed Star Citizen (no ragrets).

My college age son introduced this game to me. Sometimes I play Civ5, but I generally don't play computer games. I prefer tabletop games.

no funny/embarassing gaming stories.  (I'm still learning all the buttons here)

Hi Im Chris, im 30 and from New York. Im an Arborist and Eagle Scout. I have degrees in biology and environmental science. Your game is awesome, I love the complexity of the systems youve created. Please keep the living biomes in your games as biologically diverse as you have in this game. Id like for animals to exhibit some more realistic behaviors. Less mad squirels, wolves in packs, bears mostly being solitary, Megaufaunna affecting surroundings due to their size. Birds such as waterfowl and songbirds for meat and ambiance. Just some suggestions. I have no modding experience but would love to become a biological consultant to video game industries but dont know how to become involved persuing my current career track. Otherwise I will keep giving little hints to people where possible to try to make the video game industry set a higher standard when depicting nature. Keep making wonderful art Ludeon Studios!!

I'm Jeff.  I'm a moron with a Mensa card.  I have a bachelor's degree in computer science from RIT (a top-10 school), a 30000-word vocabulary (think "Shakespear") and...Crohn's Disease, which is a big reason why I don't have a job right now, I have disability income...

...which makes things more frustrating for me to deal with.  You don't know how many times I've wished I could get my hands on the source code to this thing--and I'm only just starting to learn how to play it.

Right now I'm trying to discover the documentation on the beauty system in the wiki.  I'm sure it's there, and I'm also sure that when I find it I'm going to be asking for a few hyperlinks so that other people can find it more easily than I could.

...and if I have to write that part of the wiki myself...well...you guys got an NDA handy?

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

A young man who lives near where I do.  He had just given me a truckload of not-so-healthy old computers and I'd cured the ills of a few of them.  I do more than program.  As I type this message, I'm watching over a game of Rimworld on an HP DV-9700 that I bought on ebay, "not working--for parts or repair" and put back together with parts lying around the place where I live.  I'm going to try to filp a couple of similar machines.  Wish me luck.

-What's your favorite other game?

An old 4X called "Space Empires III."  This took over for the original 4x, "Reach for the Stars," when I traded my Commodore 64 in for an IBM PC.

Hey.

My name is Tim and I live in Texas.  I'm 53 years old.

I discovered RimWorld through a YouTuber named Blitz.

I don't play a lot of different games, tending to fixate on one for a long period.  Skyrim, Fallout, Borderlands, Ark, and 7 Days to Die mainly.

I like Golden Grahams  ;D

Hi, I love/hate this game.  It is too much fun and very challenging.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I love base building games, started with X-COM: UFO Defense in the 90's... I like games I can let run in the background while working on things.  This one perked my interest simply because I was on another game forum and someone was lementing the lack of involvement by the developer after the first couple patches.  They referenced this game as an example of getting it right and continued improvement.  So I had to check it out.

-What's your favorite other game?
I like the newer XCom's, The Fallouts, The Elder Scrolls Games, Terraria(Probably my all time favorite), The Mass Effects, and Diablo's.  I also loved The Supreme Commanders, Rise of nations, the Warcrafts, the Starcrafts, the C&C's, and Empire Earth's.   

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I was on the closed beta-tests for Diablo II and Homeworld.  I liked Diablo II, but decided Homeworld was not that great... and told my friends to avoid it.  I am sad I did, looking back now.

Howdy howdy, I go by the pseudonym Osprey in most circles.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I've always kinda been a fan of base-building or city-building types of games. Dwarf Fortress was a huge thing for me when I was younger, and I still play it every now and then, though not nearly as much as I used to.

What introduced me to RimWorld specifically was when I hopped on to one of SovietWomble's streams on Twitch. I had joined in the middle of one of his games, "The Ice Cats". After a couple days of watching him play, I decided I wanted to get RimWorld for myself. So here I am.

-What's your favorite other game?

My favorite "other" game has easily got to be ArmA II and III. I've been a fan of shooter games for a number of years, and I still play games from the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises, but when I played the base ArmA II (I originally only bought it to play DayZ), I was hooked. I liked the relative realism of the ArmA series, the ability to actually communicate with my squadmates, and the massive map sizes. I was a bit skeptical at ArmA III's "futuristic" setting, but after playing it for a little while, I decided 'hey, this isn't that bad' and just rolled with it. Besides, that's what the RHS mods are for.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

It's actually currently going on right now... a pack of murderous gazelles, of all creatures, decided to come tearing through my RimWorld city. I was just barely able to get all five of my current colonists behind the door of the dining/general-purpose room, and the gazelles kept bashing on the door till it was at 1% health, whereupon they left it alone. Now they're just running around, and I'm waiting for them to bugger off so I can finish some things outside.

Hello everyone, my name is oHybrid and I'm from Australia.

Mack from Worth a Buy? brought me to this game, and that god he did, I've spent over 700 hours in it! And that's only with 1 completed colony!

My favorite other game, if we're basing on time played, is Minecraft. I've only ever played multiplayer, though.

My most embarrassing moment is probably when I didn't notice that one of my colonists died, I have no idea how I didn't notice it! xD

And by the way, Weet-Bix is the best cereal :D

Looking forward to the rest of my adventure in Rimworld!

Hey guys. My most common pseudonym is TheWraithPlayer (a name that stuck from my early teens) but on Steam I am Waleyva. I got introduced to the game though Youtube, specifically Cromulent Archer. My next favorite game has to be Project Zomboid: although it still has a few holes and bugs because it is an early release, it is still an amazing, gritty survival simulator. Most embarrassing... when my colony leader (I often start with one colonist) when on a killing spree of his henchmen because one of them tracked dirt into his room (P.S.- everyone died). Finally, the best cereal is the simplest on the planet...

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I enjoy strategy games, and building games that allow you to show growth (levelling up).  I love details and seeing how things interact.  Loved Gnomoria, but that game just ended, then saw RimWorld.  Gave it a go and thoroughly enjoy it (barring the game freezes that make me lose my game).  Hopefully, when it is complete, many of the mods (currently too many to list) I enjoy are incorporated into the game so I don't have crashes that lose my poor colony.

-What's your favorite other game?
EQ, XCOM games, Pillar of Eternity, Civilization, OOTP Baseball

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Well, just broke up with my vegan (yes, her psychotic new veganism questioned my manhood about picking up dead carcasses off the grocery store shelves rather than hunting it myself) as we were heading to a vegan-friendly restaurant.  Turned around, dropped her home, during a blizzard.  A few hours later while playing EQ, thought my housemate walked in, but it was this girl who was walking to my house in the blizzard and was picked up and dropped off by the police... she wouldn't leave until I agreed to remain friends (as my on-line friends heard the whole conversation).

my favorite game is an impossible choice since ive played many games of all genres but survival/building games has always been a fav genre for me

-most embarrassing story- well once I had a colony where I had my original survivors I called them the stonebloods and our great tomb was 3 times bigger then the damn city I had built in the mountain and one day I misclicked who to attack … that unfortunate misclick led to the death of one the cats that had been with the colony since day one soon after the cat who bred with it developed dementia and I had to put it down those cats were the first to be laid in the great tomb of the stonebloods

Hi there!
I'm not new to RimWorld, started playing back in November of last year when B18 was first released, but I'm new to the forums so I thought I'd post and say hi.

I created this account mainly for the purpose of posting bugs I may find during gameplay of unstable 1.0.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
My bf actually introduced me to RimWorld. At first glance, it didn't seem like my type of game due to the graphics. I know, I judged way too quickly. Once I started playing, I couldn't stop. I went through colony loss after another because I enjoy digital suffering and dove straight into the game using rough storytellers (permadeath) without having a clue on what I was doing. Although often frustrating, I have thoroughly enjoyed every second of my time playing RimWorld.

-What's your favorite other game?
I don't have a favorite game but I do have preferences in genre. I transitioned from mmos to survival crafting to colony simulation games.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I thought my colonist could handle a couple of innocent looking Ibex. I have never been so wrong in my history of gaming and immediately regretted my decision. The more embarrassing part was that I didn't learn my lesson the first time and repeated history in a new save. I've had more colonists become incapacitated by Ibex/Muffalo herds going manhunter on me than raids in my first few saves. I told my bf Ibex are op, but he didn't believe me until it happened to him.  ;D

Einie here,
I have been an avid gamer since the 70's. (Yes the 1970's - I am old - get over it - I have).  I have also been in software development since about the same time, mainly as a DB designer and software performance guy when not doing management of some sort or another.  I tend toward the strategy and resource management  games, but am not above a got FPS (too bad there hasn't been a good one since the original Unreal tournament which they totally screwed up wiht vehicles and zero gravity - but I digress.)  Ran into a Rim World post  on the Reddit front page one day and it caught my attention.  500 or so hours later I am still playing and enjoying the heck out of it.

BTW - I tend to keep a low profile in forums etc.  There is a reason I have spent most of my life dealing with machines over people.  Code has never required "relationship maintenance".

I've been playing games since I was a little kid (my first system was the Collecovision back in the 80s) and lately in my adult life, I find that I prefer slower, more chill games than action packed twitch-fests. I've been down with Battletech and My Summer Car a lot lately, but the game I keep coming back to over and over again is Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri.

I found Rimworld simply because it popped up in my queue on Steam and the funny stories people were sharing in the reviews sold me.

Post by: MerlinEngine on June 30, 2018, 06:04:25 PM
Hello, for the purposes of this forum, I will go by the name of MerlinEngine. I am a denizen of that wondrous land of peace and sunshine collectively known as the Middle East. I am at the moment comfortably nestled in my Galilean mountain retreat in a relatively safe distance away from Jerusalem's trinity of horrors; violence, zealots, and politicians. That's all you are going to hear about regional politics from me, as I find conversations about the subject dull and repetitive. Hopefully, what I said in jest won't be tagged for violating some sort of community rules.

If I had to describe myself, I would say I am perhaps a remnant of the British Empire. I am certainly a citizen of the UK, I follow the movements of the royal family for reasons that seem good to me and tend to see the Queen as my Head of State rather then my own president, but I never really lived there, so I am perhaps more impressed with my perception of what I think Britain represents then what it is in reality. Don't get me wrong, I am an Israeli patriot (eh, the country-lovin' thing, not the missile), I quite like my country when it isn't being silly and I like many silly things when they aren't related to my country. I am technically Egyptian-German Jewish and English-Italian Catholic... if that makes any sense. It sort of came together in the Marxist Kibbutz system of collective socialist communes in the north of the country. Spiritually and intellectually I identify with classical Greek philosophy, primarily with Plato and the Stoics.

I have been playing Rimworld for about a year, and expect to continue for some time. I do not recall what introduced me to the game, but I think I was probably directed to it in the steam store according to my past preferences. I spent my childhood playing village building games like Cultures, The Settlers, and to a lesser extent Age of Empires, so Rimworld very easily captured a hell of a lot of nostalgia points. I have been into gaming since I was about eight, but I have been steadily reducing the total time I put into games in recent years. Rimworld is actually a fairly ideal game in that regard, as I enjoy playing it, in short, one-hour sessions every now and then, keeping it pretty much endlessly replayable. I used to play RPG's, such as Morrowind and its less spectacular successors, but I prefer strategy games. I enjoyed games such as RUSE, Darkest Hour and Victoria 2, but I expect I will prefer to support smaller indie developers in the future.

If I had to put forward three favorite games, I would say that Knights of the Old Republic 2 was my favorite RPG, Victoria 2 my preferred strategy game, and Rimworld as my current game of choice. My most embarrassing game related story goes back to Sims 1 when I was young, barely literate and thought that the in-game firework launcher was actually a casino roulette. All the adults of the family died in the ensuing house fire, leaving the children to fend for themselves on pizza and cereal until the social services took them away.

Quaker Oats are easily the best!

Hey everybody 5th Horseman here. I play a lot of games on YouTube but have never played Rimworld. Maybe when 1.0 is a little more stable but probably not as it's a hard game to pace in a series, at least from what I've watched.

While I've never played Rimworld on YouTube, I have played it a lot and love it. I'm casual to hardcore, preferring easier Phoebe runs to naked-in-the-snow-hardcore type stuff. I don't like the idea of killboxes but if a friendly guy from another faction takes a manhunting warg to the face I'll happily keep his stuff after patching him up and sending him on his way.

I started in on this charmer back at the release of B18!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I have always liked strategy games, and have a broad taste in games in general. I started with Descent, Baldurs gate, C&C Red Alert 2, Age of Empires, and The Neverhood in the late 90's. I recently got more into the colony management games pretty heavily with Dwarf Fortress, Judgement apocalypse survival sim colony management demon hunting RPG game, and Oxygen Not Included about a year ago, though several RTS are similar to a degree. A friend recommended RW, and it's now my favorite colony management by far now, and my top 5 favorite games as well!

I have always yearned for a video game that matches pen and paper D&D in terms of ultimate freedom, and we are getting closer! I think DF still holds that spot, Though RW is far more fun IMO, with deceptively deep, satisfying, and innovative combat, and far more QoL additions than DF(Taming being at the forefront!), among other things.

-What's your favorite other game?
Probably still Baldurs gate, I haven't tried Dues Ex, but i think Baldurs gate hasn't been matched in terms of world development and story. Pillars of Eternity is pretty close in trying to re imagine the game! Divinity Original Sin 2 may be the best combat wise of that genre that i have seen. My list of "favorites" is very long though.

When I actually received a response I was very surprised. I still have that reply laying around as a reminder. I just love the freedom that Rimworld provides, every single session is different from the last. Bonding with your characters, watching them progress or perish.

The real battle beginning when the enemy are all dead and gone, left with your own resources to try and stop bleedings, infections and prevent a mental breakdown.  :o

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim (vanilla). I can't even remember how many hours I spent playing and replaying this game. The world building is great and I am especially fond of the Aurora effect they made in the sky as well as some of the music tracks in the game.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
The most recent one I can recall is when I got a notification about a man hunter pack of gazelles. Decided I would wait this one out instead of fight it off. Conscripted all my colonists outside the wall to run back inside only to realize later that one of the doors was set to "stay open" and the man hunter pack got inside the wall through the open door. And then in fighting them off realized that one of my colonists still had a molotov equipped that I forgot to swap out from an earlier raid. They were trigger happy too...

Lately I've been fond of Raisin Bran with apple clusters in it. But frosted mini wheats is my go to want something less fruity.

Hi everyone, I'm Annie.  I've been posting a bit on the forums, and I realized I've never hit this thread.  So here it goes!

I'm a 54 year old woman with a husband and 7 cats.  I've literally been playing pc games since the days when they used cassette tape storage (our computer would reboot every time the fridge condenser kicked in.  Good times).  All of this doesn't mean I am particularly good or anything, I break towards just goofing around and not dealing with min/maxing.
 
Games I've sank way to many hours in, in no particual order:

As far as Tynan's suggestions:

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Rimworld I found from recommendations from the Don't Starve Community.  I truly love DS, but I was getting a bit bored with it.  Others in the same position said they liked Rimworld too, so I gave it a go.  Fell in love in first playthrough when a mad squirrel destroyed my life.  Oh, you shouldn't ignore those like I do in real life?  Wow!

-What's your favorite other game?
Seriously, Don't Starve is awesome.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I was playing a gnome in Wow and running around sand dunes hunting small things, don't remember the details.  What I do remember is that I suddenly came upon a giant something or other.  Spider maybe?  Details.  What I do remember is that I was startled in real life.  And I screamed, in real life.  And my real life husband and our room mate at the time were at their computers playing their games.  I startled them in real life.  They laughed at me for months, and rightly so.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Cinnamon raison bagels slathered with butter.  Yes, that counts and cereal.

Hello everyone,

I'm The Survivemer. And I know that some might have some problems pronouncing it...  It's 2 separate words: "survive", then "mer" as in the last part of "gamer". Now you have it ;)

I'm an old software engineer and avid gamer. When I'm not coding or playing around with my little daughter, I record some let's plays or stream live. I have a very humble YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/TheSurvivemer) where I publish episodes on several games, RimWorld among them. This is one of my favorites games.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
None other than Quill18!

-What's your favorite other game?
Tough question! I would say Stonehearth... and The Long Dark, and 7 Days To Die, and Subnautica, and, and, and... hehehehe

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Discovering what's inside the fallen chunk of poisonous metal and leading my colony to complete disaster... on a LIVE stream!

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
None, I try to avoid carbs at all costs ;) I go directly for chicken at launch.

Cheers guys, and have a nice day!  :)

Hey guys! Cards here.  And its Cards like the University of Louisville (Kentucky), not playing Cards    ;)

I'm a husband, a father of three, and I enjoy gaming so that I can ignore all of my adult responsibilities.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Rimworld showed up on my Steam recommended games list, and boy am I ever glad that it did.

-What's your favorite other game?
Probably GTA.  Although I have to give LA Noire some love.  Zelda, A Link to the Past has to be up there.  But I enjoy lots of different styles.  I played everything from WoW, to Civ.  Total War, NBA2k, Out of the Park Baseball, GameDev Tycoon. And if I can ever find another Sega Derby Owners Club machine, I'll go broke.  If anyone ever makes a good Wheel of Time MMORPG, I'll become a hermit.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Rimworld produces a lot of them.  I tried a naked brutality run in arid shrubland not long ago. A deer incap'd me in the middle of a cold snap.  I regained mobility and staggered back to my shelter, but died of hypothermia literally at my doorstep.  On a different playthrough, I ignored a fire because I was in a mountain.  Never noticing the ancient danger was surrounded by steel.  A centipede and two scythers are no joke on day 20 of a start with nothing.  Thank goodness for those traders eh?

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Honeynut cheerios.  Obviously.

Post by: Howzit_Toyah on September 05, 2018, 09:40:03 AM
Wow. I'm five years late to the party.
What the hell have I been doing with myself?

Anyway, my name is Howzit, and I've only gotten into this game about a year ago. I've always liked video games, and I'm not picky. Ask a random person on the street about a game you know of. If the person hasn't heard of it and it's well put together, then chances are I'll like it.

Now for the questions!

"What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?"
I was looking for something new to play on Steam when I saw the cover image for Rimworld. What kept my attention to the game was seeing one of the colonists getting pegged by the exploding turret in the trailer. Then there was that same colonist sleeping on the floor in the middle of a wedding. And finally the montage of epic battles at the end.Then I read the top review on how someone set a raider's head on fire, replaced his arms with robot claws, made him die of weed, then feed him to the colony's wolves. I was convinced.

"What's your favorite other game?"
That's... honestly a good question. I'd honestly have to say Hyper Light Drifter, Minecraft, or The Elder Scrolls IV.

"Most embarrassing gaming-related story?"
This one actually occurred last week in RimWorld. I had one of my colonists, a girl with a shotgun and steel plate named Mora, man a mortar to defend against a siege. After the raider's mortars exploded, and after they were routed by my troops, I forgot to take Mora off the mortar. She was there for 15 hours. She had a berserk rage and almost doomed my wounded colonists. ...And she fell asleep after punching my doctor in the face.

"What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?"
Honey Nut Cheerios with Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

It popped up as a suggestion on Steam, as I play other sim/civ builder games.  Started playing these nearly 30 years ago on the original IBM PC.  I still play low-fi, or totally non-graphics stuff if the game itself is good.

-What's your favorite other game?

Used to play MS Flight Sim obsessively until I got my RL license.  Only thing on Steam that I've logged more hours than RW is Civilization.  A few years ago I found a web site that emulates old MS DOS games and have resumed playing Empire.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

The usual gaming overruled RL stuff.  Nothing terribly funny.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

No opinion since I can't remember the last time I ate cereal.

And/or put up ridiculous pictures, as you see fit.

Hi everybody.

I have 300 hours in this game. I'm still playing vanilla. I'm yet to look at a wiki, a guide, any youtube video or twitch stream. I also haven't made it to the spaceship or whatever the end goal might actually be, it's still a mystery to me. I play permadeath and always get wiped out eventually, though my current save is doing better than ever with 14 colonists.

So I probably won't be visiting the site, because there's still things for me to discover on my own that I don't want to read about. But hi anyway  ;):D

I love knowledge in any form, way or shape. So RPG, Looting and Strategy are my preferred genres.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Hm.. i think it was suggested in Steam, but i was more like "okay, fav and wait until more is out..". Then it started to pop up on Youtube and i stumbled upon Decoherent. This got me hooked. Nearly 300 hours in and still enjoying it. :)

Finally a game worth it's price again! Thank you very,very much!

Everything about this game, from the menu, the mod support as well as balancing and style speaks for a person that loves and enjoy games. a true enthusiast. :)

-What are your other favorite games?
Borderlands 2, Ark, Stardew Valley and Diablo 2

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

Hello there, I'm Mokaran90, I'm from an unespecified place in souther Europe and I enjoy indie games made with heart and love. A couple of years back I was digging games like Terraria and Factorio, and by various sources I got suggested Rimworld. I watched with close attention, everyone seemed to have mad fun with it, so I told myself to grab it and see what was all about.

So far, I'm having a blast, but! there are so much things to know! That's why I came here in search of knowledge.

Pleased to meet you all, may your colonies be prosperous and free of dangers.

I had enjoyed Prison Architect for a while and was searching for games similar to it when I stumbled upon Rimworld in the Steam exploration queue thingo. I had heard about it a month earlier, but I wasn't interested. Upon further investigation, it seemed like something I should try. I bought it and was instantly hooked

-What's your favourite other game?
Probably Garry's Mod. I almost have 2000 hours on it.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
On my first Rimworld save, I forgot I had to hunt animals and I wondered why my people died. I thought they would do it automatically.

Hey there, I've been hanging around for a while and now that I have 600+ hours in Rimworld and it has surpassed Kerbal Space Program in my Steam library becoming my most played game ever, it's probably time to introduce myself.  ;D

I grew up in a major city in Eastern Europe on the ruins of once powerful country which went down in flames when I was two years old. As a kid I liked sciences and adventures - I was spending time with math and physics books, as well as books about explorations and adventures, both fictional and real. Once Internet happened, I started messing with it generating huge phone bills. Eventually the combination of all these things logically led to me receiving and accepting an offer to move to the US as a software engineer. I started in rural New England, explored its mountains and beautiful nature and met my wife who also travelled to the US from completely opposite part of the world. Then I received an offer in NYC at one of those big corps you heard about and together we moved there to experience life in this mega city with its extremes, both good and bad. Eventually we got to our 30s and decided to settle down and the place that had everything we loved happened to be here in Pacific North West. We packed stuff in container, took our cats and moved to Seattle. I also left big corp and joined an awesome startup where I am making history today.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I loved simulation and "building" games since I first started playing games all the way back. I stumbled on Rimworld on Steam: I think my wife and I got bored of whatever we were playing at that time and went to Steam's "simulation" genre to look around and see what was there. Rimworld quickly caught my eye with its overwhelmingly positive reviews and funny stories and I gave it a try. It ended up being pretty addictive...

-What's your favorite other game?
We've been spending a lot of time with Long Dark these last couple years. I also recently discovered Dragon Age Origins and really loved world and story. Love games with good story and characters - either "pre-made" or the where you make story and characters as you play. Feels a bit like reading a good book, just experiencing it as a video game instead of reading.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
When I have troubles falling asleep, while lying in bed, I open up Reddit's ShitRimworldSays and keep re-reading it laughing hysterically. Other than that, my most embarrassing story will probably happen once I meet myself in Rimworld: I got my real name in there but not the custom story so I am looking forward to meeting myself from the timeline where I am a 70 year old pyromaniac abrasive alcoholic or something like that.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I usually feel lost in cereal isle due to too much choice so I had to narrow down my criteria and choose the one with snowy mountains on the box (because snow and mountains are cool!). I don't remember the name, it has something about Skagit Valley. My wife has been objecting that box design is not the best criteria but since I am the one eating cereal mostly, we are stuck with the cereal with mountains (it actually happened to be pretty good too).

Hi Guys
I just started to play/stream rimworld.
This is coming from a gamer who started gaming in the early " 8bit" days of video gaming ( yes ,i am a vintage streamer and gamer) and i must say this game is AMAZING. It has put me back in touch to what video games should be like , and it takes me back in time , a time when games were deep and would hold my attention for days on end.
The attention to detail blows my mind . The learning curve is well designed and i always discover something new . I had some great people guide me through the first few hours of this great adventure during my twitch stream .
THANK YOU so much for creating such a masterpiece and i am looking forward to MANY more hours spend in this awesome world you have created .I still have  many questions but yet i look ahead to many more hours of playing this game that has restored my faith in pc gaming.
Thank you again Ludeon Studios for giving me this awesome experience . I cant wait to introduce my kids to this . Actually my coworkers and friends as well .

What introduced you to RimWorld?
-another twitch streamer

-What's your favorite other game ?
Too many but i loved ultima underworld 1&2, ultima online, wing commander series, everquest,and wow.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Not being able to open a door in " indiana jones and the fate of atlantis."  this is before the days of the internet so no help was available and it took me days to figure out the puzzle which was actually very easy and logical :-)

Hello all!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
Well, basically seeing it being released on Steam and then checked out some Let's Plays!
-What's your favorite other game?
No singular favorite, but many. Rome 2, Prison Architect, Age Of Empires 2, Age Of Mythology, GoldenEye 007 (N64), Starfox (SNES) (Yeah, born 1991, so I enjoyed a lot of SNES and N64 games as well as GameCube games!), The Legend Of Zelda series is also one of my all-time favorites!
I think this list could go on and on.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I think I got none to tell.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Definitely Cini Minis!

And since I am lazy, I am too lazy to think of more questions that I could answer about myself. If you got any, just reply of PM!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?

I played Prison Architect and enjoyed it for a bit, then Factorio. I like having a game that I can just pour hours into and enjoy learning about for long periods, weeks and months, maybe even a near. The time came for me to find another one of those games and Rimworld seemed to be a good choice after seeing it on Steam every once in a while and reading all those positive reviews, people writing about their interesting stories in the game. This game seemed like on that combined the two games that I mentioned and enjoyed very much above. So I decide to take a shot at it and bought it on Steam. I admit, I thought it wasn't going to be fun at first, but I gave it a shot and kept at it. Eventually it won me over, and it's a pretty great game.

-What's your favorite other game?

Deep Rock Galactic. Updates for it never seem to disappoint. It has it's own little charm. The developers seem to have their ducks in order, and it keeps getting better and better the more I come back to play it. Other games include Overwatch, and yes, Fate Grand Order.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

If there was one, I would say that time my colonist got caught in her own trap and died while I wasn't paying attention. It happened so fast, that hot wash of shame, realizing what had just happened as my mind desperately searched for some external reason to blame left me speechless, and in the end I had to accept that something stupid just happened... and it was all my fault.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

I really enjoy Tesco's Honey Nut Clusters. I'm not naive enough to consider it any healthier than your Frosted Flakes or what have you, but they have so much density and texture that goes way beyond your conventional "puff", "flake", or "crunch" cereals that just taste airy, powdery, and sugary.

i was introduced to this game buy watching an adventure out on the ice sheet show on you tube. this guy was eating everyone! i thought wow if you can do that in this game what else is there.
other games i love would be old civ not 5 so much as 2 or 3.
embarrassing moment i'd say every time i discover the icon in a grow zone has multiple options that i hadn't tried till the 4th or fifth scenario.
 or maybe the one time a poison ship crashed next to the ancient evil, so when i threw my EMP nade it destroyed the wall sending even more mechanoids out to fight me. i'm just glad i had a bionic arm and the guy who lost it was a transhuman. He loved his new shiny metal arm.
i love "cinnamon life" however i was thinking of changing my name to cinnamon toast cannibal (crunch), the only breakfast cereal that advocates eating your friends.

Hello everyone, I guess I'm old enough to follow netiquette and introduce myself, so here goes.

English is my fourth language, as I grew up in a bilingual country under Soviet rule (in a wider sense of the word, not a part of the old USSR) and had to learn two local languages plus Russian first, so I hope that will explain any mistakes I make language-wise.

One of my favorite sort-of-recent games is Banished and that may be the reason youtube suggested a Rimworld letsplay, which explains why I'm here. However, considering I loved even the old Civ I, it could be argued there's more that led me here.

My favorite other game? Changes with time, right now let's say Openxcom.

Breakfast cereal? I'm a rebel, I don't do breakfast cereal, I eat proper breafasts. Besides, my other half has a sweet tooth and she'd sometimes binge eat half the box of the stuff, or all of it, so I'm not allowed to keep any at home anyway, to keep the temptation at bay.

Oh, what do you mean, an embarrassing story? Like, when I introduce myself? Nope, maybe another day :-)

Post by: Krausladen on November 28, 2018, 12:33:42 AM
I dont make games.  I work in sales.

But I've played these kinds of games for ages. Rimworld is the game I'd make myself if I knew how.  It's going down as one of the goats for me.  Also up there: Rollercoaster Tycoon, Warcraft, Starcraft, Minecraft, Terraria, Borderlands, Civilization III & V. 

Rimworld is becoming a GOAT that stands up to those games though. 

In addition to sales I've studied how to code a little bit and I did build a game in project spark - one that was way above and beyond the complexity of about 95% of the games posted on there.  I built some VERY complex RNG systems in project spark that lead to fully procedurally generated weapons that had know exact match in the stats table.  I was extremely sad when they shut the servers down.

Hi! I'm Dwane.

I recently fell in love with this wonderful sim. I was drawn to this game since I heard of it from people who played Dwarf Fortress frequently, on youtube and my steam recommended. I didn't get my hands on it until full release partly because I've been burned in the past by other titles in the same genre that failed to come out of early access in a acceptable state such as Towns and Gnomoria as well as the fact that this game was gifted to me by a close friend of mine this Christmas!

I enjoy any off-brand frosted shredded wheat cereal the most, the kind that come i large resealable bags! I also try to buy in bulk with any cereal I come by. I'm down for coco-puffs and coco-crispies (flintstone brand)

I got onto this forum to share a Idea I had and after searching steam discussions I saw I was more likely to get noticed here than any other avenue.

Hello my name is Derek. I live in the USA.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?: I have been playing somewhat similar games for years and quite honestly I don't 100% remember how I found Rimworld but it was probably someones "lets play" series.

-What's your favorite other game?: My favorite other game is a hard call but it is probably Crusader Kings 2 or possibly Jagged Alliance - Back in action.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?: So I've been doing a bit of recording session for youtube for a Rimworld play through and my favorite Meadow Ave (One of the animals from a mod) lost his Kidney because I forgot to bring it in during a raid. Well I got really cranky because the person I saved wasn't even very good so I pulled operated on her and harvested her kidney to give to my Meadow Ave (his name is speedy) ONLY to find out YOU CAN'T DO THAT! This whole time I forgot that this is what the mod "A dog said" is for and waisted all that time and created an unhappy colonist for no reason! Well that's ok, it's what I love about this game. I keep playing and I keep learning new things!

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?: See this is where I'm going to start a controversy I guess. Because the best breakfast cereal is steel cut oatmeal. There cat's out of the bag! Hate me if you must!

My son introduced me to it. He said I should try a different style of game.
-What's your favorite other game?
Baldur Gate series. I played BG1, BG2, IWD1, IWD2 and all their expansions and improved editions that came out.
-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I accidentally harvested a lung from a colonist. Just clicked on the wrong choice and didn't realize that until it was too late. I also had cats overpopulate in one of my first colonies. They ate all food, drank all beer and developed a host of alcohol-related diseases. And then the colonists starved too, because cats ate food faster than it could grow.  I felt like a crazy cat lady on that colony (which is kinda funny, because IRL I am not a cat person at all). But I understood why in old days they used to kill off kittens and puppies and just leave one or two from the litter.

Personally I like granola-type cereals. And I like to put fresh berries on them.

Hello guys.
So to introduce myself.   
I am 33 years old guy from central EU :)   
I like playing RTS games and sci-fi simulation games.  Used to play a lot in the past Warcarft series, Civilization series, Settlers series and Heroes of Might and Magic 1-4.   From Sci-fi simulation I love Freespace 1 and 2 my favourite sci-fi shooters. 

These days I play more games like Kerbal Space Program or Cities Skylines.    And well these days I got soooo hooked to RimWorld that I can not stop playing it. Really great game.  I was looking for something like this for a long time. 

What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
My co-worker from my job. He suggested me a few games like RimWorld or Banished or Life is Feudal. I told him I want to play some RTS game with some survival aspects. 

-What's your favorite other game?
Kerbal Space program and Cities Skylines for sure.  From the past it is  RPG Might and Magic 6 and 7 and Freespace 2 a sci-fi sumulator.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Hmm just started but I think it is when I discovered that there is no actual item as fridge and I need to use walls and doors and ventilation to make a fridge :) 

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
For me Cini Minis  , I love the cinnamon flavor :)

So, I'm a Spanish guy that loves colony/city management, not like SimCity, more like Frostpunk. Also simulator games like War Thunder, and sci-fi games like Star Citizen (which I bought early on so even if it ends up badly I wont lose much, its been pretty fun with friends)

I got into Rimworld after watching some YT videos and then getting it in my recommended by Steam
My favourite other games may be KSP, Space Engineers, Heat Signature, War Thunder, XCOM 2...

My embarrasing gaming related story is that I simply cannot play in peace, there is always something that comes up and if I've tied everything, dont worry, cause something will break. In these past 2 years: My Gigabyte GPU broke, was repaired, broke again while doing SLI; secondary storage unit containing all my games broke, ordered another one, broke again, repaired the original, broke, currently using an external until I can (if ever) figure out if it's my computers fault; second GPU broke, 3rd fan broke off and was held only by the magnets, making an incredible ratting noise and overheating the card (and Gigabyte's warranty reclaiming sucks, they'll try to make you accept a repair only service with all their might), and just yesterday my very much loved Rimworld save got a sudden persistent crash issue, so now I get to experience my very own Rimworld groundhogs day as it crashes every time at the same moment (yay...)

My favourite breakfast cereal are probably the white chocapics, but as they are extremely rare to find I usually change type every time I need to buy more, and that would be my introduction  :P

*stands up*

"Hello. I'm Pangaea and I'm a rimaholic."

At least right now. It's a gorgeous game, and I've not even ever made human leather hats. Shocking, I know :D

I am from Norway and getting dangerously close to 40. Work with international development assistance. Was late to getting my first computer, but got hooked once I splashed money on it myself aged 13 or so. Put a stupid amount of hours into Championship Manager, and later Football Manager. Until they locked themself to Steam. I refuse to use those so-and-sos, so haven't played it since. Mostly into RPGs, strategy games and various management games. Love Civilization 4 as well (the later ones are poor imposters), but right now I'm taking a break.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
It was actually recommended to me by a fellow Path of Exile player that I talked a lot to at the time. Bought it when I got fed up of the zoom-zoom speed demon that they have turned POE into, and have played it a lot. Oh, and I'm on Linux, so thanks a million for releasing the game natively on Linux :) \o/

-What's your favorite other game?
Hard to tell. The classic version of Baldur's Gate I and II are great, and Planscape Torment even better. That game is such a master piece! The first Witcher was marvellous. The second not quite up there, but Witcher 3 is great as well. The already mentioned Civilization 4. Sim City 2000, Theme Hospital. First Bioshock was cool, the second not quite as cool from what I remember, and I haven't played Infinite (sorry Tynan). Gotta mention the first Mafia too. That was a great game with a moving story. Then Pillars of Eternity I and II, though it doesn't really reach the heights of BG and PST if I'm honest. Those games simply have something magic about them, beyond the traditional magic. Probably hard to impossible to re-create. Especially with how the gaming industry has developed since.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Hmmm. Hard to top some of the events from the Football Manager days. It could play with my emotions something horrible. Like when I was leading 2-0 in a key World Cup match while managing Japan (plus some club side that I've forgotten about). Out of the blue the opponent, whoever it was, managed to score three goals from three chances. Blew up inside and cursed madly before pushing the chair I had been sitting in seconds earlier. Unfortunately the wheeled chair slid across the floor and the back of it hit a window -- which predictably broke. I was a student, so that got expensive.

Another time, also with Football Manager. Probably lost one game too many, or had too much bad luck in a row or something. Got up and smashed my fist into the bottom of the chair. It was leathery and quite nice, but with a metal plate underneath that leather. Hurt like feck, and after 3-4 days of pain I went to the doctor. Broken hand. Damn. Needed surgery too, because the bones was a little whacked out of position. Three pins into the hand later, all sticking out of the skin and cast. Woot?  ;D

Had to postpone some university exams due to the madness, and claimed I fell on the ice and broke my hand. Probably a good thing I stopped playing that game...!

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Don't often eat cereal, I prefer to get up and head to work asap, so eat something light and fast, if I eat at all. But cereal-wise I prefer fruits and whole grain-ish contents. Basically a relatively healthy type, without 80% sugar or something like that.

Also, I love cats. Don't have one, but blimey those creatures are fantastic. If I see one while walking to work I can't help but get down on my knees and try to pet them. They usually don't give a feck of course, but sometimes I succeed!  ;D ;D

Hey everyone! Figured id stop by and say hi!



-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I started playing Rimworld after watching a few playthroughs on Youtube, and this is the game that actually got me into this style of game!

-What's your favorite other game?
Thats a hard one, Oblivion and Kingdom Hearts are two of my favorites but recently I've been loving on Persona 5

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
There was this fighter in an old arcade that was a Tekken fighter but you stood on a platform and your character would mimic your moves. I couldn't figure out how to move my person forward and got demolished by my opponent  in front of a crowd of people that were watching.


-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Reeces puff cereal or gtfo.

I'm Jeff Mullen, a 55-year-old sufferer of Crohn's disease who hasn't been able to work for a couple of years.  It's time to see if that's changing.

I'm a moron with a Mensa card.  I do a lot of things--especially now that I have some time on my hands.  Back in the day, I was a pretty good C and C++ hacker, so it should surprise no one that I am picking up Java and looking into the cert racket to see if I can get back into the field.

I'm an amateur voice actor.  I've even done a couple of fallout mods.  I was the villain who was so incompetent that he strapped the hero to a nuclear missile and let the guy live through it.  It was a campy mod, and the voice I used for that did it proud.  I change the pitch and timbre of my voice and vary my accent.  For one tryout, the character spoke both English and an artificial language that the writer made up for the world of the story (been there, done that, I give him credit)--and I was the only one who tried out who had his character speak both languages with the same accent.  The showrunner was so busy looking for a deep, Shakespearean voice that he didn't even notice.  Life is like that.

Like every middle-aged disabled guy, I'm working on my novel.  Just trying to find a use for my 30,000-word vocabulary (think "Shakespeare").  It's a sort of Dungeons & Dragons meets Beverly Hills Cop deal--an action comedy set in an idyllic medieval dutchy, with swords, sorcery and the like.  It's the story of a demon from the Abyss turning from evil to good--and the languages I made up are ostensibly spoken by demons.

I fix computers.  Sometimes people give them to me and sometimes I acquire them by more conventional means.  At this point, there are four laptops sitting next to the desk I'm typing this post on that I found or bought on eBay ("Not Working.  For Parts or Repair.") and got working with parts I had lying around.  The HPDV9500's are the funniest.  They are notorious for overheating Graphics Processing Units--but after I put a little heat transfer paste in the right place, they only overheat when I'm installing the drivers (and the drivers still install anyway).

In the mid 80's, I played the original 4X game, "Reach for the Stars," on my Commodore 64.  The 4 X's stand for "explore, expand, exploit and exterminate."  Examples of 4X games include "Civilization" and "Minecraft."   My favorite game now is "Space Empires II" from Malfadoro Machinations, even though I think it's abandonware.  That's how I know that "Rimworld," at its heart, is a close cousin to a 4X.  In "Rimworld," the 4th X just stands for "excape."  ;)  4X games usually operate on the production center/big map model.  "Rimworld" differs from this in that it operates on the level of individual characters and forces the player to micromanage.  Yet, for all they ballyhoo its resource management aspects, there it is, right in front of you, a modified 4X.  You establish a colony (explore phase), make it better than self-sufficient establishing trade (expand phase), research technologies and gather resources (exploit phase) and somewhere in there the raids and the caravans start in (if this was for turf control, it would be an extermination phase, but if you win your offensive battles, you just rip off the vanquished and leave).

They don't say that in the wiki, the forums or anywhere else--in fact, it seems to me that they're careful to avoid saying it.  It's the 800-pound gorilla in the room.

I'd like to write to point this out for a wiki--give a description of the way they wrote the standard game to be played (establish colony, research parts for starship, use long-range mineral scanner to find resources on nearby global map tiles, use caravans to gather resources, build starship, launch).  I'm not sure I'd be allowed.  There seems to be some conspiracy of silence going on--the information is right there, but no one is directly stating it--not that I can find, anyway.

So there you have it.  Hope you made it all the way through this.  Maybe I can get an opinion or two on whether to add that thing to the wiki.   :)
