Wait, very low graphics AND ressource intensive? LOL.
Do you know any other games that can procedurally generate a world up to 8 times the surface area of the Earth and that allow you to completely reshape that world to your liking? The game has performance issues because a) it's in alpha and performance issues are normally cleaned up in beta, and b) it does more than most other games on the market.

That I'll better stick to games with much better graphics and no framerate issues.
Fair enough.

For those that haven't played the game and aren't shallow enough to let the graphics put them off, the game is entering beta on the 20th, so if you want to buy the game, buy it now. Once it's in beta, not only will the price go up, but you'll have to pay for any additional DLC that comes out post release, while alpha purchasers will get it all free because of the poorly worded terms on the site. It's only €10/$15, so you're almost certain to get your money's worth from it.
