If you love the idea of building your own town then you will LOVE this game.
Banished is a city-building strategy game that is all about life and survival as you control a group of exiled travellers who decide to build their own city. The object of this game is to keep the population alive and to grow it into a powerful civilisation.
It has the feel of a modern Caesar 3 or Zeus: Master of Olympus but with much deeper gameplay. That’s because sustainable resource gathering must be considered if you want your settlement to survive in the long term.
This game has appeared out of nowhere but the initial youtube videos look brilliant. What’s more impressive is that it’s been developed by just 1 guy, Luke Hodorowicz .
