The ultimate de-stress game! An absolute blast with friends and a terrific concept. It's like Minecraft in space!

Astroneer is an amazing game, great concept and great execution. Astroneer can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be, from walking around digging holes everywhere to making vehicles and exploring new planets. Astroneer has it all. I've played this game since it was a game preview on Steam, and its finally in 1.0! It's been a wild ride full of adventure, fun, hilarious glitches, and so much more, thank you system era for one of the best games!

This is a very engaging game. You can easily loose hours to the game, and that was when it was still in Alpha and Beta stages. Now that it is fully out, it looks so much better. There is even a goal to play which makes Astroneer even more attractive than it was before!

It might not be the most challenging, exciting or complicated game. However the game play experience is just perfect. The game visually is amazing. The soundtracks are a bit strange, but this suites the game's atmosphere perfectly. Expanding your base feels great, but your base can turn into a big mess pretty easily. Thankfully with the 1.0 release-update, this should be a lot less common as almost all modules are removable (yay!).

I've only played this game online co-op with a friend and we've had so much fun exploring, messing around and finding out what this game has to offer. It has been quite frustrating or hilarious to deal with earlier bugs and glitches although all of these have since been fixed. Most of those bugs and glitches were fixed very promptly because of the amazing communication between the developers and the Astroneer community.

I highly recommend looking into this game if you like sandbox-survival type of games. I have no doubt that the developer will continue to release more content with this game too, so happy playing!‚Äč
