RimWorld is the ultimate base building game. The goal is to build a thriving colony while defending against the environment, enemies, and mental breakdowns.
The end game is to launch your colonists off the planet in a spaceship. But you can play until your colony implodes or you’re destroyed by a pack of 20 manhunting rhinos.
RimWorld was initially released by Ludeon Studios on November 2013, and remained as an early access game until its 1.0 release in October 2018.
Reviews of the game have been overwhelmingly positive:
- 10/10 on Steam
- 98% on Google
- 93% on Metacritic
