This upcoming Xbox game lets you cannibalize your friends and wear their skin

Rimworld has already done the rounds on PC, spending a few years in early access before becoming notorious for its utterly no-holds-barred gritty colony simulation, which takes the gameplay loop of The Sims and smashes it face first into a Mad Maxian hellscape of complete and utter anarchy.

Ahead of this preview session with the game’s Xbox developer, Double Eleven of Minecraft Dungeons fame, I found myself immediately turned off by the game’s deceptively simplistic visuals. It wasn’t long before I found myself engrossed by the depth of this Antikytheran simulation. It feels like it goes far beyond any other game I’ve played in this genre for complexity and consequence, with AI storytellers that inject a level of dynamism similar games rarely grasp.
