Pictured above is my latest obsession, the textile section of ‘foundation’ a game I recently picked up on the summer steam sale. Well, my husband picked it up for me as a gift.
If you’ve ever played Banished before then you will already be familiar with how to play Foundation, because the two play almost similarly. So far the main differences (besides graphics) is that in foundation your town acts more like a town, you train soldiers and can send them out on missions (I’ve lost a few townsfolk that way so far) and there’s more ‘stuff’ at the base game. For Banished I found I needed to have mods to expand the base gameplay.
This game IS in early access, and has been for some time, but it’s a fun little play especially since it’s on sale right now. I’m hoping that it continues to be developed, I’ve been burned by early access games in the past. In the meantime, I feel like I’m at least getting my monies worth from it so far. The graphics are cute (and detailed) and so far at least there isn’t a lot of ‘bad’ going on. I’m not sure if that’s because of a setting some place or what, but it makes for good casual gaming where I can just sit and watch the world grow.
