Anyone who wants to bake small rolls (or build small towns) in addition to construction giants such as Anno 1800 or Cities: Skylines will have several opportunities this Wednesday. Because on April 5th, three promising building games will be released that you might want to take a look at.
Grimgrad: Trailer shows the construction game in the Slavic Middle Ages
Grimgrad is a classic city-building game with population classes, needs and resource management, but which sends you back to the Slavic Middle Ages and also incorporates mythology and the supernatural. Géraldine tried the game before release and it went straight to her wish list, although questions remained:
The atmospheric setting, the rustic look and the mix of modern features and ideas from Pharaoh or Caesar already made a good impression. However, it remains unclear how much fun the campaign is and whether the developers can implement the title in the quality hoped for.
Terrascape combines construction strategy with a card game – here’s the first teaser
At second glance, TerraScape is reminiscent of a fairly recent construction hit, namely village romance. Here, too, you tinker with a landscape of hexagonal fields, but you only place buildings specified by the game in an already existing world.
TerraScape is much less complex than a full-fledged building game: you only have to place your existing buildings as cheaply as possible in the vicinity of certain other buildings and landscape types in order to collect points. For example, a sawmill should be near several lumberjacks and houses should be served by a bakery.
NecroCity is a building game where skeletons build a graveyard metropolis
NecroCity also uses a rather unusual scenario. Here you are the mayor of a city of the (un)dead and build a spooky cemetery metropolis. In addition to construction gameplay – you have to settle different types of monsters and meet their needs – you can also expect a good portion of tower defense, because your living neighbors are not exactly impressed by your activities.
However, the construction game has a bigger catch, it comes from the controversial publisher Playway. He’s known for launching as many projects as possible at the same time, but abandoning some of them if they don’t generate enough interest. But NecroCity has probably already made it to the release.
What do you think of the 3 building games? Do you like one of the titles, or do you miss all of them? Feel free to write it in the comments!
