A friend has this on early access beta and says its looking good so far. Might fill that Silent Hunter III gap in the soul.

Damn, that's another kickstarter I missed.

Looks neat.

 

(Missed a brewery kickstart this summer due to that I thought that the ending day was also a day you could push money in, was swamped during the week and just forgot all the time.)

Yeah, I wish I had put some money in too, I didnt realise you would get early access.

 

My friend is being punished by sunderlands at the moment. Says is lethal to go through the English Channel.

Former submariner and gamer has a series of YouTube vids on sub tactics and tech. Figured it would fit well with this thread.

Looks a bit light on crew count. Plus, it needs the obligatory shore leave interactions...

This is out on the 30th of April. Lots of early access streaming on this guys channel.

 

Its true the crew is light. OTOH, they are including primary crew members and enough crew to get jobs done. I think if you represented 44 men, you are just making it more difficult for the captain to get to certain areas. All that said, it seems to be highly moddable, so it wouldnt surprise me if someone has a good at unlocking more crew.

 

There is also a board game variant which also looks pretty interesting.

That's where role-playing has its place. The problem is, everybody wants to do it at the other guys' places.

So ive only been playing it a few hours (its 5.6 gigs to download which takes 2 hours on my internet) and best I can tell so far, its brilliant. Yes there are clunky bits, yes the performance in place is less than I would want. But its truly a submarine management game, akin to how B17 The Mighty Eighth was a bomber management game. And there are enough elements left over from influences like Silent Hunter 3 (such as the periscope, the sonar operator, the AA gun position) that people more familiar with that game will feel comfortable. For example....

 

Early days, but Id say get it and trust the problems will be fixed. The devs seem eager to listen to opinions and fix which is a good sign. Its also on sale at £20 pound at the moment knocking 3 off, so its really not a bad deal at all for what you get.
