What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“One of the main reasons behind this decision is feedback. We expect that involving community this early in the development will help us balance the game in the following months. We hope to reach out to the community while we develop, adjust and improve the game. FreeTowns have been in development for one year and is playable, pretty polished, generally bug free and have already been played by thousands of players during our closed alphas. Having completed the core gameplay features, we believe it is time to share the game with players before proceeding further with the development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Feedback from our community might have an impact on our priorities and milestones, but we expect to be in Early Access for around 3 -6 months. While the main module is ready (town building) we still need to introduce the politics, the press and the war modules.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The final version will include three additional sections. The politics, war and press modules. In the final version players will be able to vote change taxes or bonuses, declare war on other countries, form political parties, write articles...while building their towns.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game is fully playable and generally bug free with over 20 types of buildings (each having 5 levels). You can start building a great town that will keep you busy for months to come. The current version contains all of the core elements that make up the FreeTowns experience : build / renovate buildings or roads, recruit new citizens, extract raw materials and so on. The town construction area is 100% ready. We've put a great deal of work into making sure these core elements feel polished and fun, and they're all in the game today.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to have a cheaper Early Access version compared to the final release. This is both as a thank you to people who support us at this early stage.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will focus on delivering more quality content to the game while adjusting and improving features based either feedback, ideas or other player patterns that we might discover during the Early Access. Whether this means addressing a previously unknown bug, or tweaking some numbers, we'll be doing our best to stay in pace with polishing the game along with adding new content.”

About This Game

Free Towns is city-building / military / political strategy game where you control a group of citizens who decide to restart their lives in a new land. Citizens are recruited and die and depends on you to keep them healthy, happy, and well-fed.

Your aim is to create a prosperous and thriving city, using your production and manufacturing capabilities to create raw materials and goods. The profits can then be invested back into improving the lives of your citizens / increasing your production capacity or mine more gold. The internal currency is Free Towns Gold that can be only mined (players can't buy gold).

There are over 10 different occupations that the people in the city can perform from farming, hunting, blacksmithing, to gold mining or firefighting. No single strategy will succeed for every town. It’s up to player to build / upgrade roads, resources or utility buildings and recruit new citizens. It's not easy. Buildings degrade every day and will collapse without renovation. Citizens will die after a while and resource buildings will stop the production without employees and so on.

- Build your city in any imaginable combination. Bask in the awe-inspiring glory of more than 20 unique buildings (each building can be upgraded up to 5 levels).

- Assign your workers to various jobs (Wood cutters, farmers, firemen...)

- Manage your resources carefully and increase your citizens happiness / life span

- Expand your city over a huge map
