About This Game

Civilisation as we know it has been destroyed. We are little more than a few scattered people living in caves and under bushes, banging rocks together to keep warm and eat berries.
Your challenge is to bring humanity together. Lift us up out of the stone age and forge ahead, all the while worrying about what destroyed mankind last time and if it will return to finish the job.
Settlements is a game of managing resources and crafting output over a limited space. You control the pace of the game, relax for many days of playing as you customize each character and train their skills in the items of the era, or rush ahead researching technology as fast as you can. The choice is yours.
The goal of Settlements is to bring a deep crafting RPG game to as wide a range of PCs as possible. Just as enjoyable on a gaming desktop rig as on a low-end laptop used for browsing the web.


  • Character Customisation - Change name, appreance & voices, obtain a large range of feats and even allocate them to a family.

  • 10 Technological Eras - From the Stone age to the Space Age. You control the pace of advancement through research and seeking out more land to settle. Play at a speed you are most comfortable with and stay in an era as long as you wish.

  • 100+ Buildings to place and use from housing to factories. With space being your primary issue for much of the game, deciding on what to build is key to success.

  • 60+ Character Skills. Each character can only train in 15 skills at any one time, so you will need to develop specialists and keep them alive.

  • 10+ World Skills. Ranging from house design and metal lore to militia combat training, these skills will effect all your settlements.

  • Diplomacy Points. Although you cannot fit everyone into your settlements, the people who live in the wild are still important to your success. Help them and gain diplomacy points that can be spent on benefits later.

  • 1000+ Items, books and recipes: The game has in-depth crafting at its core. Your characters will need to gain skills in various crafting methods to unlock the ability to craft rare and more powerful items as well as advance in technological eras.

  • 100+ Base Monsters

  • 9 Boss fights, each with their own unique treasure. (Including some with difficulty levels, ultra rare drops and rare spawns)

  • Scout the world for information on the Blight and help out the struggling remains of mankind.

  • 5 Difficulty Settings

  • World and Settlement Threat - leading to the Doomsday system and Main Plot Failure! Be careful not to take on challenges that are beyond your character's skills. Too many failures will increase doomsday points and lead to Victory for the Blight.
