Little Big Workshop Review


  • A lot of menus.
  • Crafting is very intense and daunting.
  • Tutorial tries it’s best but is not that helpful.
  • takes a while to get going.
  • Doesn’t go as deep as other sims and feels basic in a lot of ways.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
