Broadly, I agree with lots of ColdComfort's points, especially the sleep and clearing of drifters consuming the morning. I do however really like the collecting rushes, that seems oddly authentic. I find the knapping and pottery mechanic very fiddly and it plays merry hell with my crook shoulder. It really limits the amount of time that I can play and i suspect will make the game impossible for me to play long term. Perhaps some sort of optional automation/abstraction to allow auto creation once you have created an item once would be possible? At the moment I suspect there is a genuine risk of players hurting themselves. Minecraft is a very "click" heavy game, but this combines that mechanic with clicking tiny boxes. I do like the game though.
