Watched a couple of episodes of a Let's Play of this which was made about 4 months ago. It seems like it might be a bit "tougher" than Terraria. The crafting certainly looks more complicated. I'm considering playing it.. played tons of Minecraft and Terraria so I'm guessing it will be fine, just haven't been bitten by the interest bug yet...
In the version this guy was playing, all the crafting had to be done in a machine. Now he wasn't carrying a machine with him, so he could only craft at the base, which seems problematic. Is there any reason you can't carry the machine, or has this been updated in the last four months?
