    Might be a repost? The title is pretty generic but I didn't find anything.

    You mean Kenshi right

    I'm wary of open world in general as the easiest way to screw up your game, but I love the premise.

    Kenshi, Outward, same difference. Shades of both.

    Followed by a gif showing the PC casually kiting 3 dumbass enemies.

    Sounds like Rain World, doubt they will be able to pull off AI and emergent gameplay on the same level though

    I'm skeptical about how exactly the AI is meant to seem smarter than humans. Still, sounds cool, and I like that they haven't gone with an edgy artstyle

    The only way for humans to not be the top of the food chain is by humans not being able to create a community or there are monsters in this setting. The first one usually happens if humans are unable to communicate with each other(like Planet of the Apes) or unable to advance from more primitive level(to the point of not being able to use fire and not make/use weapons and only able to hunt fruits) and the second case would just make this game sounds stupid with "not the top of the food chain" when you are forced to create something that clearly can't exist.
    Given that you are supposed to find a new home for your tribe and are using weapons, this game makes no sense at all and going to be some furry paradise game, sadly.

    I've come across some witty beavers in my day, but not a single of them knew a damn thing about time travel, labor division, or how to build a Dyson sphere.

    I found a german review https://www.gamestar.de/artikel/pine-im-test-tiere-an-die-macht,3349968.html
    Score 73

    The reviewer likes the simulated world with factions and a dynamic economy but complains that the combat is janky, "torture" and that there is too much grind.

    I might be interested if I wasn't forced to play the brown kid, why even bother to build cool races if you can only play as the most generic one.

    This looks like Zelda BotW.

    Is anyone playing it?

    I'm definitely very interested. Main things holding me back: the art style and impressions on difficulty. I think if the gameplay is solid, I could look past my problems with the aesthetics. Don't want to buy it and find out it's piss easy though.

    This looks cool. I'm not super excited about any releases for like 6 months so I think I'll pick this up

    A little more than "some". Closer to "re-skin".

    This is an odd one. I've been playing this a bit. I like the village system and the associated subsystems, but everything else is mediocre.
