Hi there,
Just joined.
Love this game.
I wrote a review on Metacritic, simply because it deserves it.

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 name is Tanya, I live in the USA. I am probably on an older end for RimWorld (or gaming in general), I'm in my 40s. So,...

-What introduced you to RimWorld? Or to this style of game in general?
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.
-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
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.   :)

Probably youtube, I've always been into Base-Builder strategy type games, ever since I was an ankle biter.

-What's your favorite other game?
My favorite other game would probably be Dwarf Fortress, although I suck at it. I really enjoy it.

-Most embarrassing gaming-related story?
Really need to think of one honestly.

-What kind of breakfast cereal is the best?
Weet-Bix, afterall; Aussie kids, are weet-bix kids. There's some nostalgia for ya if your from down under.

-Other weird stuff to note about me:
I'm Australian, I'm a community support at the Official rimworld discord, I love helping people & learning new things, my names Riley, call me whatever you'd like, I love listening to music, and I'm an aspiring scientist! So if you're into Science hit me up and we'll have a nerd sesh.
