    Downloading the game now, excited to try it. Can anyone elaborate on the writing/world building of the game so far? How is it? Any comparisons that can be made?

    I get the feeling that the game is written by libs. But it's absolutely not the same as game being pozzed. And you could buy it, sure - I mean it's so cheap but don't expect much, man.

    I've played up to the point of finishing Nashville, what you may call the first dungeon.
    Impressions so far:

    + Exploration and setting are very fun, they nailed the awesome feeling from exploring vaults in FO1.
    + There seems to be a good amount of reactivity/c&c.

    / I'm indifferent towards the voice acting. If one could remove the narrator and keep the characters it'd be pretty alright.
    / Loot containers rivaling Expedition Vikings in quantity. But you can just skip them, so I suppose it's ok.

    – Lots of bad UI/UX decisions. Hire a proper designer, for fuck's sake.
    – Combat is flat and boring. Better than FO admittedly, but not by much. Currently playing at the highest setting with a non-combat character, and I'm still beating every encounter without much thought. I doubt adding another difficulty tier will change anything because the base system is too simple to allow for proper tactics.
    + The silver lining is that, at least so far, I haven't seen any trash-mob encounters.

    Despite the flaws, it's a very enjoyable game so far, and I could hardly put it down. Thumbs up.

    I don't mind the voice acting, none of them are bad and seemingly fit the characters. It's the narration I can't stand, it just disrupts the flow. Hopefully they patch in an ability to toggle it on/off without removing all voices.

    I think the UI/UX is one of the better things in the game, though I hate how you can't hit escape to close journals/inventory/etc. I hear they are adding that in the first hotfix though.

    Just started, but what already makes it worse than Fallout is the impersonal dialogue options and too much unnecessary descriptions and details

    Might have to check this out. I'm genuinely surprised that people are liking it, need to start paying more attention.

    Installed, but may let it sit through a patch or two. Pathologic 2 hasn't finished beating me to a pulp yet.

    Ok a small update.

    Played a few hours last night, finished Nashville, beelined to Magellan for the servoshell quest, obtained it and going to Picnic now.

    Started as Silver Wing, all stats 6 (Bossy trait). Focused on survival, influence and science at start. 0 investment atm into combat, will go for psionics later.
    Atm lvl 9, took Observant on lvl 3, Renaissance person on 6, and Loner on 9.
    Raised survival to 60 pronto to get the bonus x3 xp on discovering new shit (works on secrets!!!) - xp gain on exploring is stupidly good, especially with loner perk.
    So far so good :))))

    Bossy perk is great.

    Tip - raise cha and perception at character generation to 9, then take Mysterious patronage perk on 9, it gives you faster perk progression (every 2 levels instead of 3).

    Yeah, game is really sweet, and dat price! Go people support the devs and buy this gem of a crpg.
    It's nice when You have a game with so strong focus on C&C and many little accents like coffin one ;) . For me Encased is a game of autumn 2021.

    Pretty much avoided it at start, only nuked all the turrets outside nashville because each gives nice xp. Once i got the Nashville servoshell i curbstomped the crazies inside.
    Insane amount of xp can be gained by exploring so combat atm is not a priority for me

    Perception is really important in game - for combat precision, dialogue and discovering secrets. Also gives a bonus to learning (better xp gain).

    Much more satisfying blowing up the generator!

    Deftness will compensate.
