Subnautica

Anyone played this game? Tried to watch a few YT-videos (despite the annoying babbling of the players) and the graphics seemed a little crude by today's standards, is that correct?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subnautica

"Subnautica is an open world survival adventure game developed and published by Unknown Worlds Entertainment. It allows the player to freely explore the ocean on an alien planet, known as planet 4546B, collecting unique resources to survive.
...
The main objective of the player is to explore the game's world and survive the dangers of the planet while at the same time following the story of the game. Subnautica allows the player to collect resources, construct tools, bases, and submersibles, and interact with the planet's wildlife."

I put an hour or so into it when it was back in early access at the time I liked it and decided to wait to play it when it was completed, It appears to be very different now though, hopefully in a good way.

I might actually take the plunge in that game later this fall. If so it will be the first new one I get for over a year (after spending like $2000 on my new gaming PC last year).

This game is great! Gameplay is all about exploration, scavenging, and crafting gear to enable even more exploration and scavenging. You're more or less left on your own, with almost no handholding. The game doesn't even use mission objectives, instead you need to use your common sense to figure out what to do.

I did misunderstand the in-game clues a couple of times, causing my game to be about three times longer than necessary while I kept wondering if it was broken somehow. But even then it was still a mostly enoyable experience.

Crafting can also get a bit tedious at times, especially when you don't know what things you really need (far from everything), constantly interrupted by the need to find food (your character eats like a pig) or get air. Your inventory is very limited in size, further complicating things.

The gameworld is just one very large level, with environments ranging from shallow coral reefs to dark abysses and caves, teeming with lots of different interesting creatures. Graphics are a bit uneven, but appear much better when playing than when watching Youtube videos, and although man-made equipment looks a bit plasticky you'll mostly watch the nature anyway.

This is easily the best first-person game I've played since Stalker. Gameplay-wise you could say it's Stalker on steroids, though the environment and style is totally different. Highly recommended!

It sounds pretty good, I'll give it another go now it's finished, They were giving away free copies of Subnautica on the EPIC platform a few months back but I missed it which is a shame, I do love a good freebie.

There's also a new Subnautica title in Early Access named Subnautica: Below Zero so one to keep an eye on.

Price is still just around 20 Euros.

I thought that one was finished too. Don't want to know too much about games in development, in case the developers change or remove things in them that you liked.

Not a bad price but I already own it on Steam so I won't buy it elsewhere unless it's DRM free & dirt cheap.

Good point, I don't play Early Access games that much, I do buy them though, usually because the games on sale.

One of the best games I have ever played. Really scary and one of the few that get survival right. Can't wait for the expansion!
