    It's an indie city building game that isn't quite as complex as SimCity, but just as hard (or even more!). You start with a few families that have been exiled from their homeland and must make a new thriving city on a new and unexplored land. You will have to take care of the basics of the genre: give them houses, collect resources, make sure they have food, entertainment, health, keep on growing by building better buildings, etc. It's pretty straightforward but that doesn't mean it's easy, once your villagers start dying because you aren't giving them enough food or winter has been harsh it's pretty difficult to come back.

    I've been playing it for a few hours now and having a blast with it. Totally worth the price tag in my opinion. If you like city building games I would really recommend supporting this developer.

    Looks pretty cool but I never play games like that on my PC. It's more of a game id enjoy on my tablet.

    In this city-building strategy game, you control a group of exiled travelers who decide to restart their lives in a new land.

    The only thing that's holding me back is the lack of combat. I'm still most likely going to buy it though.

    And then came babies.

    Game looks nice. I used to play Caesar 3 and Civilization 2 back in the day...

    It's more of a pure Sim than an RTS. I'm somewhat glad there isn't combat because these villagers are quite demanding as it is already!

    I just bought it regardless. I knew 2014 would be the rise of Indie MMO's. All the top selling games on steam right now are ALL indie besides one, FFXIV.

    I'm totally hooked. It's incredible that this game was made by only 1 person.
