Besiege: Refined creativity at its best

besiged

Besiege is one of those games that makes you want to explore your creative side to the max, creating spectacular, psychotic machines everyday…

Every time I start the game up, I set off telling myself “okay this time keep it simple, and complete the objective”, but that’s where I’ve been going wrong. Besieged makes you want to keep building and building and building until what you first envisioned is now only a distant memory.

Crazy creations brought to life in unimaginable ways

Everyday I decide to check out what amazing content people have brought to the world of besiege and every time, without a doubt I’m amazed to find a creation that trumps the last. Whether it’s a full sized steam engine to a replica of the Eiffel tower every creation is unique in its own way. (check out my top 10 besiege creations to find out my favorites).

Fun thought out levels with more to come

With the game still in early access on the steam store at just £4.99 it’s a bargain that just keeps giving. You can be sure to get many hours of fun in this game that seems to offer so much in such a simple sandbox game.

Blood, death, oh and some more blood

The oddly satisfying feeling of crushing your enemies to an excruciating death brings an extra element to this already great game. We could just be done at creating monstrosities of creations but the added element of blood and guts spilling everywhere when your unsuspecting victims are either blown, crushed or burnt alive brings a whole new level to the game (oh and the slow mo feature works great for seeing your explode into a thousand pieces).

What are we waiting for?

With 6 more main lands to besiege, each packed with 15 playable levels I personally am looking forward to the further destruction that awaits the lands I demand to conquer. Currently the levels progress nicely in difficulty and allow me to adapt my playing style to find the best ways to completely destroy everything in my way. Now I can only sit back and wait to see what interesting adventures await me next.

New weapons of mass destruction

Without a doubt, my most requested feature would be to implement some more interesting ways of killing people (which may be pretty difficult). Unfortunately the fun can only last so long and eventually I have to take a pause and reflect on my life to judge what I have just spent the last 3 hours doing.

Supported possible modding, texturing and level editor

As I have said before in previous articles, it is the steam workshop that really makes modern PC games. Being able to instantly subscribe to to all of the best creations the game has to offer will be a step forward into simplifying the process (but I don’t have to worry as the developers already have this planned)

At the end of the day this is a sandbox for psychopaths, so it comes without saying that the game should feature a level editor of some sorts. Being able to plan a hellish island with surrounding waters, jam packed with devilishly high walls and archers at the ready will unleash a whole to way to vent creativity in an already highly creative environment.

I honestly can’t wait to see what this game has to offer when the final version is released and all sorts of creations that may emerge from the deepest darkest corners of players minds.
