Stonehearth (PC) review
"Early Access review: Stonehearth is a warm, cozy, glitchy pile of voxels."
Please note: This is an early access review.
I tried Stonehearth on a whim after I had sworn to myself that I would never play an Early Access game ever again. This game has simply reaffirmed my convictions in this matter. This is not to say that this game is terrible - it's not. It has potential, and there are a lot of good things about it. It has cute animations, enchanting music, and a nice crisp graphic style (though I must admit that the minecraft-esque aesthetic is getting a little old at this point).
As for how it plays, it is most definitely a minecraft derivative (not necessarily a bad thing), though instead of building and defending your settlement by yourself, you must order AI-controlled peons to do it for you. This is an excellent premise on paper, and sometimes it works beautifully. Watching your peons work, collect, harvest, eat, sleep and fulfill their tasks is sometimes very rewarding.
