Ludeon Studios has announced that its sci-fi colony sim driven by an intelligent AI storyteller, RimWorld, has sold over one million units worldwide. RimWorld is described as a story generator and it’s designed to co-author tragic, twisted, and triumphant stories about imprisoned pirates, desperate colonists, starvation and survival.
The game’s structure works by controlling the “random” events that the world throws at you. Every thunderstorm, pirate raid, and traveling salesman is a card dealt into your story by the AI Storyteller. As such, there are several storytellers to choose from.
RimWorld is currently available on Steam Early Access and this version is fully playable, low in bugs and balanced.
Below you can find a trailer that will give you an idea of what RimWorld is all about.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
