It's a game that offers many ways to win (and die). You play it in short runs that you repeat as you learn about locations, items and tactics. As you iterate you also learn about the open world: villages lie in ruins, dungeons are infested with monsters and old roads are abandoned.
The game tracks your development, health, morale and psyche in detail. It offers many ways to develop these areas with recipes, potions and special items so that you can develop your own strategies to play.
