For me it’s less of a series or franchise, and more of a specific game.
I’ve been playing for over a decade, and it seems like a lot of people have heard of it, and mostly heard bad things about it, but not many people gave it more than a few hours, if anything at all.
‘Hardcore’ space MMO. Full loot, player economy, (almost) no rules. It’s not for everyone, but I think more people would like it if they gave it enough time to get into.
Based solely on the reputation of the other Housemarque games I pre-ordered it. I just haven’t managed to really get into it as much, for some reason, mostly because I don’t seem to be very good at it for some reason.
A puzzle game is a great way to put it. I can spend hours in the game not doing anything violent, just wandering around the world, listening to conversations, observing how and where characters move, etc.
