Hammerting - Early access Colony Sim

 It's Hammerting time! You can't touch this...sorry could not resist. Honestly, you can touch this for $25, while at first this price seems high, the game does offer hours and hours of game play. With that said it's an early access title, so expect bugs and a lack of content. They have a list of game features that are currently missing, and or coming soon. So they have more features / content coming.  The other thing I want to mention is that the game lacks a tutorial, but if I can manage to figure things out, than I am pretty sure you will be fine. It does have basic text instruction that will give you an overview of what's going on.

Your band of Dwarfs is tasked with starting a mining colony in an unexplored mountain. You mine, craft, build and go above ground to get new missions and aid in the battles (by giving resources). You run into creatures in the caves and will have to do combat with them. Each dwarf in the colony gains experience and levels up, which you then get to assign their attributes points. They also have traits that can be good or bad.  You also earn research points for doing various things, which you can spend to unlock new tech.  

Overall it is worth $25 in my opinion, especially if you are into these types of games and do not mind the early access process. I think as long as the game developers keep working on it and adding more content that this game has the potential to become one of the better colony management games.
