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!

1 out of 2 Early Access products I have "invested in." The Other one being Prison Architect.. And while I am happy with what Prison Architect became, I would love to delete Towns from my library if I could. Sadly bought it about 3 years ago under very naive early access epectations..

Funny how I was one of the first reviews and it was removed. This had to have been one of the most dishonest situations to play out. He said " I am burned out, gonna go on vacation but will return to fix the game" Went on vacation, updated it once I think, ignored his community and just ditched out. This seriously needs to be removed, steam allowing this to stay up is beyond my own view of reasoning. These people are crooks case and point. "Going on vacation guys brb" "ohh by the way you guys called me out to much so I am going to change my name on here and just block everyone" Thanks for your money suckers.

Very disappointing. Terrible interface bugs with overlapping windows, clunky over all. Play Banished or Dwarf Fortress instead.

Why is the POS abandonware still for sale?? Why does Steam allow any piece of crap? Are there no standards? This game does not run on any of my computers. Pathetic and embarassing. FOR SHAME!!!

So many bad reviews for the game being abandoned. Yes, it was abandoned, but it is still an extremely fun and challenging game. I still enjoy going back to it every once in a while and getting 10+ hours of game play each time. I would recommend getting this game on sale for somewhere around $5.00. 6/10

the development has been abandoned but this is still a pretty fun game. yea some things are broken but nothing is game breaking. i'd say it would be still be worth it if this game was on sale and you like these types of games.

I got this for 10 cents. I loaded a game with hopes that I could build the strongest empire there ever was. I then realized that I had no idea how to play the game and there was no tutorial and 1 min into the game my ears wear ♥♥♥♥♥ by the sound of my villagers dieing. 10/10 would send this to a friend so they can also be ♥♥♥♥♥ in the ear and feel disappointed that there dreams of building a town were crushed.

While I sure got my monies worth out of this game (some 60 hours clocked) the fact remains that the dev ran off without finishing the game, and this after several youtubers had been praising the game (and funnily enough getting their names in the game). hmm.. Not saying anything.

The premise of the game is solid just it still lacks so much that would make it a good game, is it playable sure and you could probably have more then a few fun hours but the fact remains we shouldn't be rewarding devs who just dash off with our money like that. Was the first and last time I put any money on an early access game. Shame, as I said I like the idea behind the game, the graphics are cute but in the end.. there isn't enough there.

Oh and did I mention the dev just ran off without a word?

Great game, so very sad that it didnt get enough attention to keep it being built.

deep, rewarding, challenging but with an ever increasing mastery availible, you can always get a bit better, and a bit deeper.

seriously, really getting into this game is extremely rewarding.
