New indie simulated strategy game coming out

This is a FYI only. This is not an ad or anything.

A game called Banished is coming out. Just that I have been following this one man band develop a Sims like game all on his own. Pretty amazing actually. It goes thru the whole history of him developing this game. If are you a history puff or a programmer, you might be interested in following this. It really in-depth and personal. We need more developers like this.

Anyway, it will be selling on steam soon. You can check it out here http://www.shiningrocksoftware.com/

My friend showed me this not long ago. I have been waiting for a solid noob-friendly DF clone/spinoff and the fact that it's in 3d (pretty 3D) combined with this developer's insightful dev posts (as you mentioned) make it an instabuy for me. I don't think I'll even wait for reviews assuming it's a reasonable price.

Yep, same here. I'm buying it the minute it comes out just to support the developer for keeping his fans informed!

I also like the fact is it not so violent. None of that first person shooting stuff that is everywhere.
