Mornin '14
Filed under: BANISHED
Banished is one tough game. Reminds me of a bit of SimCity 4. Gonna write a review for this one as soon as I can. The only thing is that you progress very slowly in this game, if you want to do things correctly, that is. The thing that's important to avoid here is starvation, because that leads to death. Also, I guarantee you that within the first few playthroughs all of your citizens will lose their lives, so you need to understand how food production works. Anyway, I'm going back to this one. Talk to you guys soon...

It's on my Steam wishlist...

Amazing that it was developed by one guy.

Morning,

It really is a splendid game. My first 2 games ended in disaster, first due to starvation, the second starvation caused by running out of tools. Then the game clicked and my third game ran well over 300 adults before I ran out of map space (small map).
It's a joy to play and rewards careful planning and patience. The UI is a dream to use, trading screens aside.
The best thing is that the developer is intending to add more to the game once he's had a break and ulitimately we're going to have mod tools.
The comparrison to SC4 is a good one. I've played well over 500 hours of SC4 and the community is still churning out mods everyday. With luck this is how Banished will be.

I don't have the patience anymore to "watch the grass grow".

It's not just watching the grass grow. You watch crops and trees grow as well and you get notifications when old people die.

And you get to see the baby livestock grow as well.

The only game of this type that I still love and play is Zeus and Poseidon! I wish someone would make something like that now with some nicer graphics n stuff..

starvation doesn't lead to death, it leads to McDonalds.

actually, if the game had a cheat in the game with a hidden Mac-building, i would have bought the game twice just for the laughs.
