This one came across our desk with the title “Low-Poly City Builder Arrives October 11.” We thought the title was Low-Poly City Builder and we immediately approved, but it turns out the game is actually called Settlement Survival. Low-Poly City Builder would probably sell better.
Developed by Gleamer Studios, Settlement Survival is an overhead management sim that has you founding and managing your own settlement community. You’re gonna need a system of government, fields of plants to generate food (you’ll also have to hunt to keep your diet balanced), methods of gathering resources, and finally, proper management of said resources when you need them. Natural disasters can strike at any time!
Find Your Home. Choose where to build your settlement, sculpt its landscape and determine its layout and styling.
Grow Your Population. Recruit Mayors to set the tone of your settlement, build housing, control crime and ensure your baby-booms don’t negatively impact your resources.
Survive Disasters. Heed the early warning signs, bunker down and secure your citizens away from danger or risk losing all that you’ve established.
Explore Unique Maps. With each map randomly generated, right down to its resources and landmarks, every experience is unique and brings with it its own challenges.
Discover Rare Blueprints. Offering powerful effects, unique themes and styles, rare blueprints are an opportunity to customize your settlement even further when you’ve mastered trading.
Develop Currency and Trade. Whether exchanging artistic items of high value, unprocessed products or unlocking the mint to create a common currency, trade is key.
Low-Pol—er, I mean Settlement Survival is available now on Steam for $14.99.
