That would be a sad thought, as when you have a good foundation, it is best to build something on it.
Kind silly to build a perfect slab of concrete for a shed, when you need a shed, and just leave it there, empty.
More people are interested in the shed, than in the slab of concrete, so its a bad business move, so i hope they change their minds they would get more sales, and more future brand loyalty, if they opt to build a proper game.
Rather than a waste of time.
This is by no means, a Dupe, as it is specifically asking for "purpose" not "defense" or "attack modes" as a primary, themselves.
also, it doesn't matter what someone says, it matters only if you can convince them otherwise.
Sorry to say, you cannot convince me, and every other person like me, this game as it stands, is a waste of time, while adding some actual purpose to it, would give it meaning.
If they want to eventually have a name for themselves, building a niche game, just to say they made a niche game, Then that's where they will stay.
Though, based on the fact that some of their games, are entertaining... and have purpose, i can tell, that's not the case.
They seemingly try to make games, that are inclusive, and entertaining.
So asking for a proper purpose, has no harm in it.
After Extensive searching over the last few days, i have found that their will be attacks made against you while you build.
confirmed by the Dev's themselves.
This is atleast a hopeful step, as it makes the game more varied, "how can i do better next time" vs now... "should i just make everything manually, or should i make a complex network to make it more lazily..." or "should i just stop playing this game, as it has no entertaining activities, unless you enjoy placing blocks arbitrarily in creative minecraft..."
Thank you coffee stain, nagging mechanics, are needed, for the vast majority of players, to feel accomplished, we don't enjoy being babied, with "peaceful interactions".
Im Glad, you understand how to bring in multiple types of people, rather than making a niche game, for a small tiny niche, of the player base of that specific genre. lmao.
Can't wait for the mayhem!
