Despite the scathing reviews and my utter disllike for the very unbalanced ARK evolved Dark and Light I found pleasantly surprising.

I am however still reluctant to throw too much time and attention at it YET, becauses its still being made and the very nature of it requires a considerable amount of time be dropped into it to get anywhere. To spend that only to have it wiped or reset would be a considerable interest killer for me. So i’ve bought it but ill sit on it until it’s out of development and actually released proper.
