Some noteworthy points

  • RimWorld is a story generator. This story generator is designed to co-author tragic, twisted, and triumphant stories about the detained pirates, hopeless colonists, starvation, and survival. The story generator is controlled by random events which are thrown at your world. The AI Storyteller will distribute the cards of a thunderstorm, pirate raid, and salesman into your story. In RimWorld, there are many storytellers such as Randy Random- accomplishes crazy stuff, Cassandra Classic-raises tension, and Phoebe Friendly-creates good things.
  • Your colonists are not professional settlers. They are the survivors coming from the crash in orbit. You can end up with a nobleman, an accountant, and a housewife. You can capture them from combats and turn them into slaves, buy them from traders, and take in refugees. Thus, your colony is a motley crew.
  • Each player will not have the same background. For example, a nobleman has a great social skill to recruit prisoners, negotiate trade prices while a farm oaf can grow food, and a nerdy scientist is good at research. Also, a genetically engineered assassin can’t do anything but killing.
  • Colonists develop – and destroy – relationships. Each of them has their opinion of others. This opinion determines the person that they will love, marry, cheat or fight.
  • RimWorld generates a planet from pole to equator. You can choose to land in a cold northern tundra, a parched desert plain, a temperate forest, or a steaming equatorial jungle. Each area will have its animals, plants, diseases, temperatures, rainfall, mineral resources, and terrain. And challenges that you encounter are different in different areas when you are in a parched desert wasteland or a frozen tundra with a two-month growing season.
  • It’s possible to tame and train animals! Cute pets will cheer up the colonists while farm animals will work, produce milk and wool. Beasts are very useful to attack the enemy. RimWorld gives you a lot of animals like cats, labrador retrievers, grizzly bears, camels, cougars, chinchillas, chickens, and exotic alien-like creatures.
  • People can observe their condition and show the right decisions. They can overcome the hunger, fatigue, and difficulties, even dangers. If their stress is unbearable, they might lash out or break down.
  • Wounds, infections, prosthetics, and chronic conditions are tracked. You are hard to shoot if you have eyes injury or wounded legs will slow down your speed. Worse yet, other parts can be or missed.
  • Don’t worry! You can heal or replace wounded parts with prosthetics ranging from primitive to transcendent. A peg leg will get Joe Colonist walking after an unfortunate incident with a rhinoceros. Of course, he will walk slower. If you have enough money, you can buy an expensive bionic leg for Joe. And he will run very fast. Especially, you can extract, sell, buy, and transplant internal organs.
