Terraria meets Rimworld in Necesse, an open-world survival and colony sim game that just got a colossal update alongside a big discount in a new Steam sale. If you’ve been looking for a colony sim game to fill in the gaps during the holidays, Necesse has completely overhauled its multiplayer for the better, while also introducing a slew of additional content for solo players.
Rimworld fans will immediately recognize what Necesse is trying to do, as it incorporates a visual style inspired by Terraria, alongside some similar crafting and building mechanics, into the colony sim and city-building game genres.
Solo players get a brand new survival mode, an improved system for getting NPCs to join your party, a reworked endgame, a new biome with boss monsters and loot, and changes to the available number of difficulty options.
Anyone wanting to try Necesse online also gets a wildly improved multiplayer too, as before this update you’d need to make an entirely new character to play with friends. Now, your pre-made characters can just hop on over to a friend’s world, taking anything you already have and keeping what you find, too. With the sale and new features this is a great addition, as the last thing you want is to start from scratch just to play with friends.
