Overview: Become a Master Builder.

20190724:
Setup: Used keyboard and mouse. Probably should have used just the keyboard. Changed the resolution to 2560 x 1440.


Steam Game Time: 72 minutes

Thoughts:
Neutral:
~ What is the point of "Saved Bricks"? Why is there a useless statistic in the menu?

Cons:
- Not as fun as I thought it would be
- World editor tool is overpowered.
- Lacks the fun and appeal of LEGO games, e.g., Lego Star Wars.
- Excessively high learning curve; I felt like I was learning a complex tool like Adobe Photoshop
- Bad UI
- Discovering items is an unnecessary game mechanic
- I couldn't understand how to build and move the cursor in 3D space.
- Wheel menu system was annoying (have to hold tab to open it)
- Annoying narrator. For example, I was off exploring and the narrator repeatedly asked me to check out the meteor crash site
- Building structures with a quick shot of a gun is boring


Unknown:
? Sandbox Mode

Summary:
I was excited to play this game, but I was met with a lot of disappointment. On paper, the idea of this game is awesome. Unfortunately, the execution and reality is a horrible mess.
