About This Game

The game brings a fresh new take on the city building/management genre by introducing many RPG features.

In Towns you manage a settlement on top of an active dungeon. Instead of playing the hero who delves deep into the dungeon, how about playing the town that houses and caters to the hero's needs?


Both the RPG and strategic aspects will be fleshed out over a series of sprawling dungeons.


Attract travelling heroes that will independently explore the dungeons below, fight off monsters, gain levels, special skills and collect the best loot they can find in order to clear the land of all evil!


Craft unique weapons, trade with exotic items, obtain randomized loot, set up devious death traps and build a settlement capable of holding back the forces that come up from the depths!

It was fun for a bit, but the devs ran off with everyone's money.

Bought this game before it came to steam. I enjoyed it, it had some seriously cool things going for it as I'm sure you can see by the amount of hours I've played this game. With its interesting take and style from DF.

Sadly I can only say as a recomendation:

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! Read all the other reviews. This game is dead, how it's still for sale and at such a high price is beyond me.

Held off for so long on writing this.

330 hours... Must be a great value right? Nope, nearly all of it was idle in the background while I waited huge amounts of time for the terrible AI to get anything done.

This game is a tedious unpolished mess, filled with either insane levels of micro management or giant periods of idle time. The AI is dirt poor and starves to death doing basic tasks. Asking questions about it on the forums will get you told by the moderator how it's not a bug and is really your fault... this is only true because you bought the game.

The dev also seems to think it's cool to appoint fanboy's and white knights as moderators. The Steam moderater doesn't moderate, he takes a clear side and bans people who disagree.

Do not buy this game, do not support this dev. There are reasons why the reviews are mostly negative.

Edit:

Be clear anyone reading this that asking about this game on the forums will result in you being lied to by the few fanboys remaining, everyone else who'd give an honest answer has been banned.

Do not buy... Ever... Dev's left us high and dry with a 20% complete game. This is one of the games that burned me with early access and such.
