The indie hit “Dorfromantik” has reached its final release today.
This game is a pure building game, where you strive to build the most beautiful and efficient landscape. You use hex tiles to expand your current map, and solve little quests to gain more tiles for further expansion. The game has overall been described as very relaxing. It might be good for us to get some distraction from all the conquering ;).
Dorfromantik is available on GOG, Steam and Gamesplanet for normally 12.99€, but is currently available for 9.09€.
StarDocks latest title in the “Galactic Civilizations” series has been released today.
The 4th part continues the series: It is a 4X (yet not turn-based) strategy game in space. As in other parts of the series to set out to conquer the galaxy, settle new planets, conduct diplomacy with aliens, and try to achieve one of multiple victory conditions.
This game just popped up in a PCGamer article, which got re-tweeted (originally from 2021), so: Vedelem is a real time strategy game, so not exactly what we normally look at, but this seems to include some building, and is set in a historical scenario, which makes it interesting for us. The Mongol invasion is also a not-overused scenario, so it might be worth having a look. It seems to be a survival game though, so not fixed end goal or campaign. It’s available for free on Steam.
Old World, the current game of Soren Johnson’s studio Mohawk Games, has already some following here, but we got asked if we cannot increase it here in the forums. Soren has contacted Thunderfall, and asked if we could help him, and we are happy to do so. Their publisher Hooded Horse has provided us with 5 keys for Old World (including the new addon “Heroes Of The Agean”, which we are free to use for a little competition here.
Since we know you like discussing civs, we ask you: What is your favourite civ from the old world? Just tell us which ancient civ from the old world (Europe, Asia, Africa) do you like best. This civilization doesn’t need to be in the game already. If you like any of the ingame civs best (Rome, Greece, Egypt, Carthage, Babylon, Persia, Assyria), then tell us. If you like any other best (may it be Scythia, Sumeria, or any other), tell us. You would like to have any added? Tell us! Among all entries, we distribute:
3 copies of Old World in a random draw
1 copy for the best entry
1 copy for the best joke entry (excluded from random draw)
The deadline for entries is May 10. We will announce the winners on May 14. Only one entry per participant will be considered. This little competition is run in parallel in the forums and on Twitter and all entries will be pooled. We reserve the right to disqualify any entries.
Coming Tuesday at 18:30 CEST there will be a live stream of the new Old World addon “Heroes Of The Agean”. The live steam will come from the Value Foundation, which is a Dutch non-profit organization focused on disseminating knowledge with the help of games.
