Ill be honest, I tried it for about 2 hours and it didn't really do much for me. I'm more into games like Vallhiem and the practicality and ease of that game and games like it when it comes to builder type games and surviving.
This game just left me feeling like I was doing way more work then what was really needed when it came to making a shelter or a fire. I played this with a friend and he left feeling the same way.
More power to those who do like this style and grind, but it just wasn't for me.
I actually found Valheim to be much more grindy than The Forest (at least the original). Although it's been a while since i played The Forest, i remember I spent most of my time exploring rather than base building. Where-as Valheim was a lot of grinding to unlock the next area (especially the swamp runs for iron/mud or whatever it was), then being unable to teleport with it and having to boat run after boat run.
Actually, i recall one of my biggest complaints for The Forest was there wasn't enough survival or need for base building. Maybe this is different in SOTF?
That said, I actually really enjoyed both, but it's disappointing that Valheim was so successful and then the dev's pretty much disappearing instead of taking advantage of their initial popularity.
Green Hell and Conan Exiles are also awesome survival games IMO, and all have co-op!
And whilst i wasn't a fan of Grounded, more games need to use the storage and inventory sorting system found there. Spending so much of your time micro managing / sorting / searching for crap in chests needs to go.
The devs haven't disappeared, they just brought out a large update recently. and are still working on another large update.
They have not disappeared!
