More first Impressions :P

Only had about 3 hours play time so far, loving it so far. A surprisingly polished game for something in alpha stages.

Positives:

-Great looking game, even on lower graphics settings.

-Easy to pick up and get into.

-Addictive

-Love the crafting system


Negatives: (More like bug reports and suggestions)

-On one, and only one startup, the home screen stayed black, but i could hear the music playing, and after taking a guess where the continue game option was and blind clicking, got into the game and all was well. Even after restarting the game it did not do it again.

-I don't know if I just missed it, but i did not come across a fishing tutorial, and i'm just too stupid to figure it out myself. I get them hooked, but they keep getting away.

I've only played three hours, as i said earlier, but my first impressions are highly positive.

Looking forward to investing an unhealthy amount of my life in this game ;)

There's a brief fishing tutorial the first few times you use your fishing rod (at least, I don't notice it any more, coming from someone who has already invested an unhealthy amount of their life in this game), but I found the first couple times I tried to read it, I got a fish hooked and was either trying to figure out how to keep them hooked, the instructions faded away too quickly, or the fish got off the line before the instructions could even fade.  I've already stated my dislike for the current fishing system before, but there definitely also needs to be clearer instructions.

You want to move your mouse left or right following the arrow on the screen hovering above the fish - so when the fish is moving left, point your mouse left so that the fishing rod in the game is pointed that way. Same with right. That'll keep the tension from going too high (usually), but to actually reel the fish in, you have to left click. Reeling also increases tension, so mind the tension bar, and stop clicking if it gets too high. (At least, I think it's clicking and not holding; I stopped fishing early on because I don't like it, but also because it's just not useful; there aren't many fish, the cooked fish recipes aren't worth the effort for their low stamina regen, and the fish aren't big enough money earners to bother with. )

Good to know. Thanks
