To be fair this is only the second worst port of a game I've ever played.

Yeah I saw that the port is...um, "rough" to put it lightly. Strange, since apparently this same studio did great work on other Switch ports. Maybe this game was too much for the Switch? Or they didn't properly optimize the engine/textures/whatever for the hardware.

I kinda want to buy and play it just to see how much of a train wreck it is, but I've spent so much money on stupid stuff lately my budget is kinda broken at this point, haha.

Someday, maybe.

It's a pretty good game but I had this weird feeling while playing it, that most of it felt very familiar, despite me not really playing WRPGs much.

It looks a lot like Fallout. I believe Digital Foundry said this Switch version is almost what they would expect a down conversion of Fallout 4 to look like on PS3. Looks pretty poorly done.

I'm very biased against this game just for causing confusion with Outer Wilds, which is fantastic.

@Zero

Yeah, it's a good game but I expected more considering the people involved in making it. On the one hand, it's a Fallout-like game that isn't bug-riddled (I can't speak to the Switch version in that regard), so yay! But at the same time, while there's a lot of writing in the game, it failed to make me care about many of the characters and the world itself. I also felt like the first area was the strongest part of the game, and latter areas were just a lot of the same stuff, but in bigger environments. It was good enough that I'd like to see them get another crack at it, though.

@Secret_Tunnel

Ha, this too! I saw someone refer to OW as "The Outer Wilds" earlier today on another forum, and my blood started to boil.
