Between the old Caravaneer and this one, I feel the balancing has become... off. The game has become much more difficult. While players are given much more freedom and a LOT more to control about their groups and whatnot, a lot goes unexplained. For example, if you do not eat enough food, you become thin. When you become thin (the term used in game is emaciated, had to look it up just to know what was going on) you lose physical points, when you lose out on physical you lose carry weight. Then you get stuck in the middle of the desert with no food or water. Now what?
If and when this receives an update, a more in-depth tutorial would be a must. As it stands, this is just stupidly confusing and there seems to be just one challenge after another, with little guidance in the way of solving it.
Until a better tutorial or at least some better form of guidance (and I'm not talking about the 5 whole webpages worth of guides) comes out, 3.5/5 is really all I can see this game getting.
