About This Game

Lead your people to their new settlement in this survival city-builder. You will need to provide their shelter, guarantee the food supply, protect against threats of nature, and pay attention to well-being, happiness, education, and employment. Do all of this well, and you might even attract residents from foreign cities!

Carve out the land, join rivers, form lakes and use your tools to shape your settlement exactly how you want it.

Build housing, recruit Mayors to determine the morality of your settlement, control crime and ensure your baby-booms don’t negatively impact your resources.

Experience all seasons and heed the early warning signs of disasters. Bunker down and protect your citizens from the elements as well as environmental disasters, or risk losing all that you’ve built.

Offering powerful effects, unique themes and styles, rare blueprints are an opportunity to customize your settlement even further when you’ve mastered the art of trading.
