Premature Evaluation: Last Days Of Old Earth
Last Days of Old Earth is a turn-based military strategy game set in a distant, post-apocalyptic future. Despite its turn-based nature, Last Days of Old Earth is no deeply complex civilization modeler. The mechanics of said military operations are heavily inspired by tabletop games — no surprise there, since developer Auroch Digital is perhaps best known for its electronic adaptation of cult board game favorite Chainsaw Warrior. The board game influences show up most via the emphasis on dice and deck-building. Just about everything else comes from dice rolls. You can also spend various resources on extra dice to increase your chances of going first during a given turn or for an extra advantage in combat. Additional modifiers come into play via terrain types — it takes longer to traverse tall mountains than flatland, obviously, and some mountains are completely impassible — and a concept of supply lines that basically boils down to territory.

Last Days of Old Earth [ official site ] has tons of potential to be a great strategy game, in much the way a story outline has the potential to be a literary masterpiece. An Early Access evaluation is an odd creature. On the one hand, it has to look at the game that currently exists, in whatever incomplete form it has taken. A good early access game just needs to be enjoyable enough to play right now, while hinting at all the exciting things that players will enjoy along the road ahead. Last Days of Old Earth is really a turn-based deathmatch with hexes and cards. But it also means that the strategic layer is mostly window-dressing on a card-drafting game with an underdeveloped resource economy.
