Jay Krishnan of Gameffine is not very impressed by Crumbling World:

Crumbling World Review (PC) :: A Collapsed Experience

I'm a sucker for indie RPGs. But these days, there are so many of them out there that it's hard to track, even for a member of the video game press. When I first saw Dani Marti's Crumbling World on the home page of RPG Watch, I immediately added it to my wishlist. I followed it up with a review request a few days later and waited impatiently to try it out, hoping to discover a worthwhile indie.

While I'm not a big fan of anything procedurally generated, I was certain that Crumbling World's idea of pushing you forward through droves of enemies, while the world continuously crumbled behind you would be a novel experience. 10 hours later and I couldn't be any more disappointed. Well, let's get right to it.

VERDICT

I don't enjoy bashing indie games with-super low budgets. But sometimes, developers have a hard time coming to terms with scope vs limitations of a project. I think that's what happened to Crumbling World. Looking back at the Steam community tab, I admire the developer's passion and dedication to this project. But Crumbling World has too way too many issues right now for me to recommend it. Some of my favorite RPGs ever are also technically flawed or are janky to the brim but at they at least succeed in one or other major areas to deliver a fun experience. Crumbling World lacks just that. Here's hoping that the developer manages to fix some of the issues plaguing the game, forcing me to revisit it in a review redux.

Score: 4/10

Ouch though I have to say this game reminds me of the action RPG Ashen. It was an Epic exclusive for a year and players enjoyed playing it. I wasn't interested though.
