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!

Why is this even on Steam still, let alone for $10? I bought it on when it was on sale for like $2 and even that was a rip-off. The game was clunky and buggy, and then abandoned.

Why is this even being offered? A promising early access game was released as is, abandoned by the developer. Do not waste your money unless you want to witness the frustrating could have beens' of a good, if not great game.

Gnomoria, Stonehearth or Dwarf Fortress are all better than this.

Not in just small ways either, this is a buggy as hell game that has been abandoned.

If you like your hopes for early access to get snuffed then you should buy this game. It'll only cost you £10, but a lombotomy would be a cheaper way to get the same thing done.

Please avoid this unfinished alpha game. There was a lot of potential when the developer was working on this but the game has been abandoned and hasn't had an update in years. A considerable amount of content and polish is missing. If the game starts being updated again I'll update this review.

I have played this game a lot in early access, before it was available on steam. Recently came back to give it another try. Nothing changed! Except that the game is now called 'Finished'.
You can't release a game like this after all the support!!

This is exactly the situation where devs ruin things for other devs. These guys made their money and left the game and supporters. People will be less confident in supporting other games and devs with great potential. It is a shame!

Does it work? yes, is it finished? nope. Will it ever be? nope. Many things could have used a serious overhaul, but will never see the light of day.

Game had a very nice twist on the standard rpg / managment genre, but sadly will never be finished as the developers abandoned it. Maybe somone else will pick up the idea and make a sucessful game out of it.

But not this game. Move along folks.

The game was rather crude back then. I found myself struggling to enjoy it. Back then, I would've recommended it if you're into sandbox games like this. After all, devs were working on it, slowly making it better.

....But I wouldn't recommend it at all anymore. It's abandoned, devs have completely stopped working on this, and it's definitely NOT worth 15 bucks for an unfinished, buggy, crude product. Another game that never makes it out of early access, just like ♥♥♥♥ing Day-Z. Don't bother.

Why the heck is this game still for sale Steam?? Boo on you Steam. Boo. We should bring you up on charges of human rights abuses. The cowards gave up on it nearly 2 years ago, and you still leave it up here for them to get more out of the player community? Need a downvote on Steam as well as this game!

So my review of the game.
Well it showed promise for the first 6 months. Had fun with it and was patched pretty often. You could see it starting to come together.

Then these two cowardly, piece of re-heated dead monkey lice they call Devs gave up. Their names are Xavi Canal and Ben Palgi if you'd like to read more about the story. So then they give the development over to some poor schmuk named Frankenberger. He couldn't handle it solo as he was more of a fan than a true dev. So when he quit in Sept. 2014 that's exactly where this game has been. Exactly. 18 month ago.

So it sold 200K copies for $15-$20. You do the math. Someone got paid, and we got the shaft.

This game had potential, but all of that was wasted when the developers abandoned it.

Still buggy,
Still unfinished,
Still not worth the money I gave it.
