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!

A perfect example of what is wrong with current indie development. Devss build to a point then stop before they finish the product. Snatch, grab and dump. DO NOT BUY! And shame on steam for not craking down on this behavior.

Abandoned game that never even got close to finishing early access in reality -- somehow, what these devs did is allowed, although I cannot imagine how.

To be fair, this game is more playable comparing with Gornomria (or whatever that is).

i cant believe this game exists. there is ironic fun to be had, because it is so ♥♥♥♥, but it quickly gets old and you will regret buying it. make sure to set a timer for two hours so you can refund it and spend your money on huniepop or something.

So...where to begin. This game I remember seeing back in 2011 on YouTube and I thought it was pretty cool. Found it on Steam when I joined, bought it when it was on sale for like $5. At the time, it was still being worked on, albeit slowly, so I thought "why the heck not."

Looking back now, this game had potential but was left to rot by the devs and since late 2014 has never received a lick of development. It's unfinished, unpolished, buggy and will probably never, ever see what it was to become. It has good features and has a lot to it despite being in its forever unfinished state. The A.I. has always had a mind of its own and is hard to deal with when trying to set up runners, farmers, builders, and traders at the same time. Not having even just one person assigned to just one tiny task could end up causing your settlement to crash without enemies even attacking, simply because someone wouldn't go and make flour so you can bake bread so your dedicated farmers could eat and go harvest more wheat to repeat the cycle.

It's a challenge, but if you're looking for a basic time waster, this game is good for that. I can't recommend it, however, just because of the state it's been left in without further development. If it's on sale for cheap and you like a nice, casual city builder, you might look into it. But for full price, look elsewhere. This game is going nowhere and will forever be that way.
