Colonist sur­vival is all about build­ing rooms to pro­vide dif­fer­ent func­tions. And chick­ens. I’m not sure who brought them but they wan­der around the base like they own it. First, I need a work­shop to process and man­u­fac­ture raw ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate machines and equip­ment like at­mos­phere pro­ces­sors, power gen­er­a­tors, and heaters. It’s not very well ex­plained, though, and while I’m fum­bling around build­ing a desk and smelter – the ba­sics for con­struct­ing any­thing – I get re­peated low tem­per­a­ture warn­ings which I can’t do any­thing about be­cause I can’t build a heater. While I’m try­ing to work out what the game wants me to do two peo­ple col­lapse and die. The chick­ens look on, un­con­cerned. As tu­to­ri­als go, this could go bet­ter. For once it feels like this is the game’s fault and not mine – noth­ing’s be­ing ex­plained well at all.
