At a first glance, at alpha...

It, is, GREAT!

Though in aplha it allready shows promise as you can have a whole ARMY of minions i'm sure at some point in the game where you can controll them. It is a rather intresting game an though has only and easy and hard mode with the options for aggressive creatures or not to fight. This game is one that I WISH i could support at the time of writing this message. This game is a great addition to any library that is looking for games simliar in venture to Dwarf-fortress and to an extent. Rimworld. Which i'm suprised wasn't added in the See also list.
