  • Is it like The Escapists. Will try this and Undertale. I love indie games.
  • Yeah that & monico except it looks like a 5yr. Old designed this
  • It's a pretty fun game. The game style reminds me of Zoo tycoon.
  • Is this the game kid was playing in Hot Tub Time Machine!?
  • Tried it once but I couldn't get it to work on my pc... a problem with Ati cards. Tried every fix I could find and the latest version but still cant get it to work.
    Hope it is adapted to XO control scheme well then I might be able to play it at last
  • Finally not Early Access? Well, then, might consider it. It looked interesting.
  • Strangely drawn to this, but damn that is a long wait.
  • If someone had mentioned this to me don't think I would believe them.. You really need a keyboard and mouse for this. But I guess its turned out ok for alot of other games on consoles
  • I would definitely consider this.
