For those of you who haven't heard of it before, it's a city-building sim that has a focus on survival. It's made by Shining Rock Software which consists of one guy. Right now it's $20 on Shining Rock's website and should be out on Steam soon. I haven't played it yet but I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

Just bought now so looking forward to jumping in.

I was following the development on the Shining Rock site for a couple of months so I'm really glad to see the guy launch successfully.

Looks really good from the GoG page. What era is this set in, exactly? Shame there is no combat or something to really put your survivors under stress. Hate to say the Z word, but having some menace out there would spice it up a bit.

Not sure, but I know there's some LP's from when it was in beta.

Also as a side note, if you buy it from the Shining Rock website you get a DRM free copy as well as a Steam key.

Definitely will get at some point. I've really missed playing a city building sim.

Sounds kind of like the Settlers games, slid a slight bit more in the direction of SimCity. Never heard of it before, but it looks interesting enough to keep an eye on it.
