Name is Vietgnome - no, not Vietnamese, just liked the name.... and gnomes.
Live in upstate New York (same city as RIT).  I'm a teacher, and have been playing video games since I can remember - from Adventure to (hopefully soon) Pantheon, Rise of the Fallen.

-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).

Umm.. rhetorical question?  Lucky Charms of course!

Hi all, I go by hrhomer. I've used the name online for about 20 years, and chose it after watching the Simpsons episode "Homer at the Bat." It stands for "Home Run Homer." Live in Gettysburg, PA. From Trenton NJ, but consider San Francisco to be my "hometown," as I lived there for about 17 years and miss it so much.

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

I have tried Dwarf Fortress many times, and just couldn't really penetrate the dense layers to get to the meaty center. The genre fascinates me.

-What's your favorite other game?

In my life, the games I have played most have been Worms 2, Civilization III, Diablo II, and World of Warcraft. Currently, the game I have been returning to daily has been Spelunky.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?

When I was about 12, my dad took me to the mall. I went to the arcade while he did whatever he did. I was playing "Rush 'n' Attack." I got killed in a particularly annoying way, and yelled "Oh, f--- you!" My dad had been standing behind me the entire time, and luckily just laughed. But I was kinda scared for a moment.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

I've alwayd loved mostly old-person cereal - Grape-Nuts, Wheaties, Raisin Bran, etc. But Cap'n Crunch and its' spin-offs are awesome.

Hey folks! Langreda here! I'm an eye doc and a father of two, but after the office is closed and the kids are in bed, I am a scheming Rimworld colony overseer!

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I have always loved strategy games! I think Steam recommended this to me based on playing Civ VI, Banished, and Don't Starve.

-What's your favorite other game?
I have been a huge fan of CRPGs, from Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights as a teenager to Shadowrun Hong Kong and Pillars of Eternity most recently.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Recently made a colony with Prepare Carefully of my personal character, Cahuani Langreda, and 10 Langreda clones, named I, II, III, etc. for the monthly challenge. Our jungle colony literally went down in flames after one member of our clone family died from a panther and everyone had a breakdown. Oh, plus two raids back to back. I just put it on 3x and ate cake to comfort myself while I watched.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?

names shane in truth and jerry is my online name and dnd character and currently in highschool so not much to do but build my colony harvest organs and download mods to make androids to do my work for me

what introduced me to rimworld is random chance to be honest I just liked how free and open you've made the game so props to you

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

fav cereal- cookie crisps

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

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I don't really like cereal. I'm a horrible person.  :-\

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".

Hey, I'm Gwtheyrn, a papermaker haling from the United States and the great state of Washington. No, not THAT Washington. The good one over on the West coast.

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.

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.

Jon from Oregon in the US! Soccer, Zoology, Games, Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica!
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.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I shall have to think on that!

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
I rarely eat cereal these days, but when I do I Frosted mini-wheats! Though Honey Nut Cheerios and Raisin Nut Bran are close.

I stumbled across Rimworld back in 2014. I thought it was absolutely amazing even back then, so I sent a message to Tynan to kind of show my love. 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

-What's your favorite other game?

Like many others, this is not as easy of a question. At this time however, it would probaply be Steel Division or Stellaris. Huge Paradox nerd.  8)

Hello, I'm Namsan. I'm learning English.

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
I bought Rimworld in 2016, because my friend told me like "You can harvest organs from people, or force people to eat human meat in this game! I think Nam would like this game!"
He was absolutely right.

-What's your favorite other game?
Doom, Terraria, stupidly violent games, and some roguelike games.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
I can't remember well, but I hope I didn't produce it in recent days...

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Cereals with berries.
