Played Pixark a bit yestreday, the game seems really neat. I got over 3000 hours on standard ark and still find some fun in pixark. In some aspects is easier than normal ark, that is on crafting and building, that will be great for people who like to be creative. Terraforming is also a thing! Some things need to be improved too. Chat window is very big and annoying, it goes all over the place won't let you see inventory or options. There should be higher contrast between dinos's inventories and inventories backgrounds, to be easier to spot where exactly should you place the items. But I think all will be sorted, this is after all an early access game on the 1st (or 2nd) day of release. Looking forward to see improvements.
Volkswagen also bought Audi, Skoda, Bentley, Seat, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Scannia, Man, Ducatti and Porsche and they keep being all different brands on the market. One company buying other don't means they merge, only that they share bosses and funds. Also ideas spread faster between the brands and they can do cross measures and take ideas from one another without being sued. Snail Games and Wildcard is the same.
