We tried our first colony yesterday, and promptly dug into a cavern of water which flooded our base, causing one of our guys to drown on the latrine. Plus it took us a while to work out that smooth flooring is more than just an aesthetic choice...
The second colony is going a lot better, although it will be a very long time before we manage to construct hydrogen cooling systems!
It's a good game. More forgiving than Don't Starve, maybe, but with more to manage.

When you say "we", were you playing it with a friend beside you? Cause AFAIK there's no multiplayer, right?

Yeah, we swap who's running the base each "day." It's good fun, and I can assure you it is NOT FRUSTRATING AT ALLLLL to watch the other person dig a bit too close to the water cavern for the third time. As you can imagine.

Yes, I would definitely count a thousand tonnes of rock and soil as "chilly surroundings."

It's interesting to see Cheshire Cat's population! After about a dozen utterly failed colonies, I've finally learnt that it isn't always a good idea to print new Dupes the instant they become available. Particularly if I'm halfway through sorting out an oxygen crisis....

I love this


Interesting! I've always had one big room of cots and a second big room of mess tables. I'll have to try this Personal Space method instead. Do the dupes get lonely at all...?

Hmm, thanks for the update info! Derelict buildings scattered around the map would be a fantastic change.

(Incidentally I'd like a Stinky plush. That dude often seems to wind up with good stats in my games.)

After plenty of (failed) games without ever seeing a single geyser, I've started a map with a steam geyser to one side of my start, and a natural gas geyser on the other. What should I do with this bounty?

Chlorine geysers sound pretty nightmarish.
