I’ve started writing some game reviews for iOsStrategyGames (I swear I didn’t know about that awesome communist branding before I took the assignments), and I was assigned AstroNest. On the plus side, female characters wearing clothes! On the minus side, pretty much everything else:
Science fiction in general requires good writing to keep it from becoming a meaningless technobabble story. With “trons” to build and “cosments” to collect, good writing could take AstroNest from spreadsheets in space to a vivid and exciting sci-fi adventure. Unfortunately, the combination of typos, spelling mistakes, and poor localization in the game’s text makes directives hard to understand and really destroys any world building intent a player may have in the process.
This has been a lovely outlet to work with, and I hope I’ll have more reviews here soon.
