OK, after about 35 hours, I finally had gathered enough materials to fully upgrade my Prawn’s depth and make my way to a certain very warm facility only to discover I can’t unlock it because I don’t have the correct kind of tablet? I didn’t know there was more than one kind. Clearly I have missed some exploration cue or failed to open a box or scan something or something. Anyway, at this point I’m not sure I can be bothered to finish the narrative. I’ve had a great time with the game so far, but it’s time to move on to something else.
I’ll note that I did play the game on Survival. I’m not sure that it actually adds a huge amount. Getting food and water is a major annoyance until you get food and water production set up on your base, and then it’s just a minor annoyance.
