slipways is a very cool game. it's about colonizing planets and building a trade network



there are different "council" leaders to pick which give you different technologies in the game. research points are generated by building structures that consume surplus resources. slime lab and chips lab:



it can be very satisfying to thread connections



a standard run can be completed in 30-45 minutes, the duration is 25 game years (colonizing planets takes three months, building structures and slipways take one month). it's turn based so you can take as much time to think as you want. there is also an undo feature as long as you didn't reveal new information (planets or new council tasks).



two hot tips:

if you misplace a structure, you can right click on it and drag it to a new spot instead of using the undo feature and trying to guess a new spot

once you unlock "quirks mode" (random environmental changes), there are quirks involving maintenance fees (harmful radiation and weak slipspace) which don't really affect playing on the easiest difficulty, so you can get an easy points multiplier to earn enough stars to unlock other modes

looks cool and at a glance feels like 'ascendancy'- if that is a fair characterization then i need to pick it up

e: goddamnit there was an ios re-release of ascendancy that has since been pulled

there is way too, way too much riddler content in that game

it's like in one of the early planning meetings they decided that if anyone ever reached 100% completion they have failed as designers

I got 220%

Ascendancy was so loving cool! I still think about those complexity meters sometimes that were more and more complicated gems and plants to indicate how advanced the society was

oh yeah it's not my rarest achievement. isaac is both a popular game and there's a lot of people who just download a completed save file to have all the unlocks right away, so that 1% is inflated but i don't know by how much. my rarest is a .9% achievement from a poker game

it didnt exist, (last one is 19), but the must haves is the all new season system and new production stuff (converting various raw materials into intermediate stuff and finally into finished products).

itís like yakuza, in that the main story is played pretty straight, but the side quests involve tracking down cats or perverts or wigs or drinking people under the table.
