À propos de ce jeu

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!

This game has been abandoned by the devs over and over again. During the most recent sale I pointed users to a great review about the history of the game and what has happened with the devs.. It was removed as "boycott thread" I then made a post regarding how it wasn’t and it was a review... I was then banned from the forums.

I have never seen such shadyness from developers or steam forum moderators. Stay FAR AWAY!!!

Here is why I was supposedly banned...
You have been banned from Towns Discussions by a forum moderator for your post in "Towns General Discussions":
YetiChow Moderator 3 hours ago
Deleted thread "Don't buy this game". Reason: spam, calls to boycott, and the fact that the same topic has been done to death already. Also a rather icky necroposting.

A reminder, these kind of boycott threads will NOT be tolerated. There's a reviews page for reviews; if people ask for opinions then that's another place to give them; but these unsolicited boycott threads are just unacceptable.

I highly disagree with this. My original post was notifying potential buyers of a great review that was written about this game. It told the back story of what happened with the devs for this game and how they abandoned it(surprise? it just happened again). How could that be a "boycott thread"? If I had somehow managed to find a positive review for towns and asked the user base to read it and get educated of the background of the game it would somehow be tolerated. This just again shows how shady you are YetiCHow for removing threads entirely and labelling them as something they are not.

Update: YetiChow has now updated his original post to again try to make me look bad. If you are going to police the forums in a dictatorship manner and not allow users to share reviews or their opinions unless it is in a positive way atleast own up to it.

I was going to avoid naming names in the hope this was an isolated incident; but apparently that's not the case. Also deleted another topic by the same user bizkit_109, written in response to my deleting the original thread. This user has now been warned, and further behaviour in the same manner will not be tolerated.

Apparently they like to silence any honest negativety towards the game and if you display any of that you get the big ban hammer. What a joke this develpoer is and the staff it lets moderate its steam forums.

DO NOT BUY. Developers abandoned the game. New developer was hired on the fuel of broken hopes and promises. After he realized this and quit, the owner admitted that he will not hire anyone else, nor continue working on the game himself. This game should no longer be available on steam.

From what Im reading, the creators stopped supporting the game. Dont buy it. There are other better games out for your money.

RUN!! TAKE YOUR MONEY AND RUN AWAY AS QUICKLY AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN!

No words will ever describe how bad a game this is.
I got sucked in by the promise and was left horribly dissapointed.

Just to keep this short : this game has not been finished. Things were promised, hopes were up but in the end it has been abandoned and after a long time I have no more faith in it ever being completed.

I don't recommend buying anything from this developer.

I am mad at myself for spending both money and time on this broken piece of ♥♥♥♥. Also this game has been ABANDONED by the developer so don't expect anything in respect to support or updates.

So if Moderators or others push you to the demo, its not the best way to understand how the game is or how well it runs. First off, the demo does not give you the greatest feel for the game, just proves that the basic mechanics are working....

I'd also like to point this out, HEAVY MODERATION in the forums, see link below. If YETI does not agree with you or finds a reason to delete "negative" posts, he will. If you post in the forums, YETI will justify and "help" you make sense of the horrible AI and how the game was built as SH***Y as it is but it was all done like this on purpose. He responds to every comment to mask the amount of players who feel the same way about the game. Discussions that become overwhelming negative he will delete because the discussion is going in "circles" Check his own delete blog on the link below. This type of moderation in the forums is one attempt to keep the game alive. He HEAVILY defends the game at every chance even with all of the people arguing with him. The only people who agree are Lvl 0 Steam Users with Blocked Profiles.... Enough said.

http://steamcommunity.com/app/221020/discussions/0/35220315866244607/

Now for the review:

The game is time consuming which is why you may see players with a fair amount of hours, the bugs become more apparent the longer you play. Horrible AI, AI starving itself with plenty of food. Slow productivity of the AI. You have to micromanage every aspect of the game which to me and everyone else in the forums, is horrible AI construction and pathing that they will not fix. If you attempt to build a house all at once in the game, the builders constructing it will not stop working on it until it is finished, that includes dieing in the process from starvation (with plenty of food next to them).... feel free to drop me a comment on here with anything else you would like to know. *I do not respond to Lvl 0 Steam accounts with blocked profiles, your comment will get deleted.

Dungeons get even more involved and getting to them is a pain... to say the least. Construction is not polished at all.

To sum it up, the game runs, if you work around the poor mechanics of the game, it is playable. Its extremely time consuming which looking at this game, it should be a faster payout of fun since its a bit behind its time.

There is no Dev support in the forums, just moderators pushing the game every now and then. Development is next to nothing, look at the update history.

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 tedous 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.

Unfortunately, I am one of several stuck with this buggy, uncompleted mess. I would say that Towns exhibits the worst aspects of Early Access -- except that it is not and never was advertized as an early access game.

And now it is abandoned.

Basically this started out in what appeared to be a promising direction, but then was promptly abandoned shortly after hitting Steam.

Don't buy it, it's a scam... The game is there as advertized, but it's an alpha and it's staying an alpha... It's charging 15 dollars for a game that never gets updated. Bugs don't get fixed even after years of development. Features are still unfinished. Nothing has polish to it. This game should not cost what it does, and it should have been finished development years ago. I wouldn't complain, but I paid 15 dollars for it, so I have a right to. I was promised something that never came about.
