Seems to me, very much, like the devs ran out of money and rushed this out the door. Effectively doing a retail launch of what is actually an Early Access game. The plan being, get money from sales to continue working on and making the game work

This seems like "Video Game Development 101", rush it out the door, get money, fix it later.... alarmingly it's happening more and more as the days go by, it's so bad in fact that its RARE to see a game be launch problem free these days, when we do see them, we're sooo bloody grateful for it... it should be a standard not an exception...

So disapointing. The Emporer does not approve.
