came so short of a perfect game for me. i really wish they maid the game longer. and more of a non ending type game something that I can jump on to take care of kind of thing. like they could have ended it. but then let you get some sort of "free roam" thing were you have a bunch side quest to do and you can destroy and re create new races. and go hunting to find bigger and stronger creatures and depending on your "essence" that's how you destroy them. it had so much more potential imo

I love this game - I really do. The characters are fun to interact with and the gameplay is surprisingly involved. One of my favorite things to do was, truthfully, answer prayers from the creatures on your planet. It made the experience much more immersive. One of my main complaints, however, is the lack of diversion when it comes to the story. I've replayed this a few times, but the same end-game event always happens. What you choose to do after that event is up to you, but still limited.

Everytime i read it, i get a different ending. i make different choices. Its organic. it plays into a power fantasy I think we all have. it's easy to follow and just so unique experience that makes you think. out of every app in the marketplace this has to be my favorite one. it's definitely worth the purchase and I'll go months after reading through and have the urge to replay it, and each time I'm surprised by the directions the story takes.
