    Yes. The standalone edition is a horrible buggy mess which shouldn't have been released to the public. It's billed as "early access", but it should really read "unfinished alpha". I'd wait for the full release if I were you.

    +1, I vented my frustration in the 7 Days to die thread so I won't do it again! I do think the DayZ Standalone is almost unplayable! I wouldn't recommend the only alpha game I can recommend it Rust thus far.

    I haven't purchased the standalone version of day Z yet but I've seen vids and my feeling is that Dean 'Rocket' Hall has simply pocketed all of the cash made from the standalone and has no intention of 'finishing' it. It's been in development for years now and there's very little progress to speak of. It makes me wonder how large his dev team is as the impression is that there are literally one or two programmers and artists working on it. He's made millions up front and I can't help but feel this isn't being re-invested in the game unfortunately.

    I picked up dayz standalone in a flash sale for £3.99 a while back. If they don't improve it I've not invested much into it. If they do, then brilliant.

    I started out well, hadn't bought a thing... then pay day happened.

    Ended up with:

    Octodad: Dadliest Catch
    Space Engineers
    The Fall
    Deus Ex: GoTY
    Deus Ex: Invisible War
    System Shock 2 (Modded the life out of it )
    Risk of Rain
    Shadowrun Returns (+DLC)
    Grim Dawn
    Ultrabundle (a few indies from some company who's name have escaped me.. they did Titans Attack)
    Defy Gravity
    Pineapple Smash Crew
    Retro/Grade
    Marlow Briggs

    Total spend of around £50.. not too bad. I'll probably never play any of them, but hey, cheaps.

    Space Engineers is amazing. I've spent far too much time playing it.

    My list is:

    Tropico 5
    Space Engineers
    Age of Mythology
    DisplayFusion

    That's my lot. I already have 200 games, 90% of which I've still not played...

    I went all out troll with Space Engineers.. accidentally launched a friends work in progress towards an asteroid (he didn't have any thrusters etc on it), sped off after it, got it running, stole it and used it to hijack a mining ship.
    Then smashed that into his mini asteroid base resulting in a rage quit. 10/10 would grief again.

    I've got enough to keep me going for the rest of my life Steam DB
    But bundles are a truly awesome thing :P

    I have no idea what Space Engineers is (beyond, what I can sensibly presume.. "A game on Steam" :P) but that sounds hilarious.

    You're an astronaut who can mine asteroids and raid mining convoys for materials to build and expand space stations and ships.

    They're working on the survival mode at the minute, but we're just playing about in creative. I hollowed out an asteroid, threw a few gravity generators in there and I've now got my own little floating base.

    £10.04 I believe.

    Its amazing for such an early alpha release. They're very active developing it too, with new things appearing pretty regularly.

    I fully expect it to become the next big indie game, like Minecraft.

    I haven't even scratched the surface yet, need to play more, I've only got an hour or two so far.
