Its a very fun to play survival and random stories game. And you can get mods without Steam, i dont get the issue some people have with that.
I concur, 'SarahGabriella'.
I own both versions & transferring mods from Steam to GOG is super easy.
To suggest RimWorld needs mods to be enjoyed is...silly.
I play with very few mods, mainly 'EdBPrepareCarefully', Numbers, & 1 or 2 Biomes ones.
Hell I even did a couple for myself.
It is comical to listen to folks complain about the 100's of mods they use not being updated at their whim.
I have a friend that will use mods for games that don't really need them, just because they are a mod. :)
