I tried the game once but couldn't understand how to play it plus the graphics were just confusing. It's nice that their doing an official improve graphics update and it's also on itch up making it DRM Free. If the reviews are good, I might buy the game to support the makers.
i mean are you asking about if the reviews for the graphics/UX are good, or if the game is good? because the gameplay itself has gotten nothing but absolute praise from everyone.
I suspect the graphical interface. They're apparently fixing the "graphics must be the same size as the text" issue, and how good this is may depend on how well that ports.
I'd actually welcome that if it allowed for SQUARE TILES THANK ARMOK
To be fair, the gameplay does have detractors, mainly with regards to the clunky menus and the difficulty cliff.
i feel like the difficulty cliff is kind of overhyped. if anything its the hype that's making people give up without even trying to learn it- combined with the less than helpful interface, of course.
The basics are not vastly more difficult than any other settlement builder. Find location, designate jobs, establish shelter, establish food, establish indestructible wall for defense. The only thing missing is an in game tutorial and intuitive UI. It doesn’t even ask you to do anything weird as your first step like, I dunno, punch trees with your bare hands before your first nightfall.
Well, your first step isn't even on the field. It's the world creator. After that you pick your overall area, then your starting supplies and skills for seven dwarves and whatever animals you bring along. Then you get to picking out an initial place to settle. Bring a copper axe. Wooden ones don't work anymore.
ETA: But yeah, no. The difficulty's not as strong as it used to be. Things are fiddly and detail oriented, but other than automating out your micromanagement with a manager, you're pretty solid once you figure out farming and the like. Settle on soil and you won't need to mess with digging out ponds.

Cool, one of the streamers I follow, Setch Dreskar is doing this game now.
First step is building a new world and hoping that's not the whole damn stream.
