Saw the trailer of this by accident about a week ago and it looks very interesting. If the price is right on release, I'm going to buy it.

Ooooooh
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

Sweet, I've been missing a proper city building game for a while now. As Bin said, if the price is right, I'll be likely to get it!

The game will cost $19.99 USD.

Via Steam, whatever our price is - looks good though so i'll probably get it as my sister owes me some Christmas gifts ;)

Aaaaaaand it's out, slightly higher price than advertised on steam. If I wasn't using my steam balance for it anyway I'd recommend everyone buy it through the website instead as you get both a drm free copy, a steam code and the developer gets more money the developer gets the same amount of cash since it costs more on steam.

How did I not know bout this one! Looks amazing but I'm going to hold off buying because I have other games and priorities at the moment.

Apparently is cheaper on humble and banished website than it is on steam and you get a steam code anyway.

It's nice to see a fresh (in my eyes) game on steam that isn't some half arsed early access rip off.

I got 10 years in last night, lost one of my original dudes in childbirth a few years back, only 2 have died since then and both have been old age. I'm about to face a large decline in overall population but i've built up food reserves to cope. It's very addictive, as I said on the steam forum this is like entry-level dwarf fortress management training lol.

The bonus this has over dwarf fortress is I don't feel like I'm gazing through the code of the matrix :P

Enjoying this too. My first game has gone very slow though because I didn't build many houses so my adults weren't making babies after around 30 pop. (then they all started dying of old age).

I'm probably just going to start a new game on Hard at this point. :lol:

Managed to sink a few hours in it, which just flew past! The game's really good and extremely addictive! So far I've managed to set everything up well enough to have a self-sustaining society of a sort, I just pop down a couple of new houses every now and then so people can start new families. Got a steady flow of food and logs, just placed down a mine and a quarry so I'll have the resources coming in nicely. Next up, trading port and farming!

Expand more, make it fully self-sustaining, make sure you don't make the mistake I made by forgetting to make more babies, do achievements, up the difficulty...
