The Tomorrow Children - Official E3 2015 Trailer | PS4
You have to admire where The Tomorrow Children does innovate—particularly its look and social engineering—but it overly burdens you and bogs down progression with dragging resource collection and bureaucratic manipulation. Even though you immediately progress from a Prole to the ranks of the papered Bourgeoisie you're still tediously grinding for the man.
The Tomorrow Children is at the beginning of its journey, with Q-Games' next step one of the most important in shaping the game's future. What is present shows promise, but after several days of playing it feels like most of what can be experienced has been. There's already a sense of repetitiveness settling in, and it feels like something is missing, even if I can't quite put my finger on what it is. On the flip side it really is great seeing players work together to help their towns grow, and finding ingenious ways to do so. The canvas is set and there is potential for a masterpiece to appear depending on what comes next.
