Raft: you'll find no shortage of sharks here

Raft: You'll find no shortage of sharks here! A Raft first impression game review. I've had Raft on my wish-list for a couple of years, so I decided to pick it up (this Steam Winter Sale after the 33% discount - frugal much?). Raft is a survival game with building and crafting mechanics where the player is left drifting on a small 2x2 raft on the vast ocean. You'll need to stay awake on the first in-game day to gather resources; I felt super lonely in the dark while drifting on the ocean. I understood immediately that I would need to gather my materials first in order to survive, before expanding my Raft and then pursue the story. I've been able to get the hang of it and stabilize my hunger and thirst needs after my first two hours on the standard difficulty. Here is my computer specs: CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700k CPU @ 4.20GHz RAM: 16 GB DDR4 GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070x2 8GB GDDR5 Display: 27" MSI Optix AG32C 165Hz Raft is fun

The Steam Screenshot Folder

You may be asking, "Where is the folder for my Steam screenshots?" 1. Log in to your Steam app, then go to View and select Screenshots.  2. A window will appear with your screenshots on the local disk. Click Show on Disk and a new window showing your screenshot folder for Steam will pop up.  You'll notice that the path is not intuitive as it's named with numbers instead of your username. You can create a shortcut to this folder instead of logging in into Steam. Also, if you need an uncompressed version of the image for better quality, click Steam (on the menu) and select Settings. Go to In-Game and check the box "Save an uncompressed copy" under When a screenshot is taken. It may ask you to select the screenshot folder, so simply select the My Pictures folder if you need the copies immediately.  THE HARVEST GAMER Sam1, a portmanteau for someone, is an aspiring novelist in the romance, comedy, and horror genre.
