  3. Worth it at $30 or wait for a sale?

I'm a big fan of monster collecting games and the last couple years have been a fantastic time for the genre. However, there are plenty of mon games that aren't $30 that are great value - look at Monster Sanctuary or Nexomon.

I realize this is an indie title but the sheer amount of reviews on multiple platforms concerning bugs has me spooked.

Anyone have any feedback?

Take note of the dates those reviews were posted, some of the glitches are no more.

There's a topic below this I made concerning the latest patch update that fixed most of the softlocking bugs(and introduced a few new minor ones and crashing that are addressed in the next patch due for Switch). The most you need to worry about now is the crashing when the game loads alot of data at once, and you can warp back to the farm by pressing L- minus button -Up on the controller to warp back to the farm if you actually get stuck in a wall after the patch.

It's a good charming game for sure, but a bit of story/lore missed if you take the Good route later in the game, kinda need to replay it twice to get the full story. You can wait for the next patch to drop honestly, it has a lot of added content/balance changes anyway. Worth the 30 bucks imo.

Recent Steam reviews lead me to believe that this game isn't in a final, complete, fixed state on any platform. I guess I'll think about it this one, but these issues should have been ironed out before officially releasing...that's the entire point of Early Access.

Not to mention since the patch, the game crashes every few minutes. Going 10 minutes without a crash is huge. The game is not ready and should still be in early access. I would wait if I were you.

Let me add, once the game is fixed and polished, it will totally be worth the price.

Just started a new file and didn't get a crash till 3 hours in. Then started again and got 3 crashes about 20 mins apart. Now I'm going on an hour of play and no crashing. The next patch should address it, but damn, ngl, it's pissed me off. Saving regularly mitigates it, but it should not be like this. It's not the only Switch game to do this, but it's never been like this.

Funny thing is, the game is in a more playable state before prepatch, when softlocking was more common and the game music would get mixed up or cut off.🙃

Apparently the big patch we've been waiting for has dropped. I'll confirm it tomorrow when I get to a place with internet to see if the crashing has stopped.
