Bought this game couple months back and so far put 200 hours and not yet scratched the surface. Devs took over a decade to make this survival game and is brutal. Here's a common scenario... you and your friends get into a fight somewhere outside of town and lose. You're all unconscious and soon dying of bleeding to death, slavers happen to pass by and notice notice our bodies. They start bandaging us up but too late for a couple of my friends who bleed to death. The ones who survived including me get shackled and taken to a prison camp. All our possessions are taken and put in a chest somewhere in camp. Eventually we're able to pick our locks and sneak out of the camp at night. We're starving and if anyone recognizes us as escaped slaves, we're in trouble... at least until about a week passes or get disguises to minimize getting recognized... and that just one possible beginning ... very well thought out game mechanics. A few bugs here and there but nothing game breaking.

Does it have a plot or narrative goals?

Nope, open sandbox kinda similar to rimworld gameplay in some respects but in a different environment. Try to survive and make your own story within its harsh world. https://lofigames.com/
