Apparently this one has Peter molyneuxs's finger print on it though amazingly nearly none of his legendary hypemachine. Guess he learned the lesson of overhype when he made Godus.

This game gave me one of the best first 30 minutes of a game in a long while. It really gave me the feeling of going on an epic adventure. You're walking down a path, collect some resources to craft stuff, watch and discover the fantastic environments and meet some nice people. Later on in the game some problems pop up, the inventory is way too small. This means you have throw away a lot of usefull stuff you're going to need for crafting later. What I also don't like is the fact that this game is free to play. The best thing about this game is exploring new area's and figuring out what's going on. The free to play balance isn't even that bad, but it means you've got to do pretty much grinding. This means you're walking through the same area's and you're not really exploring anymore, which means the best part of the game is kind of gone. The game has a lot of potential though and at least Molyneux didn't overhype this time.

I'm actually enjoying this game quite a bit. It doesn't need constant internet and it is relaxing with gorgeous art style. I can already tell the grind will be real and may get tedious it also feels like time a dedication will be rewarded without having to shell out too much money. I'll post again when I've played for longer.

I should mention I actually really enjoyed Godus and still fire it up every now and then. So, I might be biased towards 22 Cans lol.

Sup guys?
Can someone help me with PH account?
I'm constantly getting "contact support" stuff recently, even when using a PH vpn.

This game looks really fun, so I want to test it out, but I can't.

Thanks in advance.

I hopped over on my PH itunes account and noticed the game has a update available. Might solve your issue getting on.

I updated the game and nothing changed. It just shows the 22cans and Kongregate logos, a white screen, and then cuts back to my home screen.

I don't think it's my device, because I've only had it for 3 months, but I downloaded it on my phone and it ran normally.
