Dawn of Man

Post by Newcastle » Thu Mar 07, 2019 11:32 am

So this is new on Steam. Pretty fun so far. Its a city builder based in the stone age. I've read comparisons of it being similar to Banished (its true so far). I've only spent about 3 hours in the game, but so far its pretty fun. No real bugs as far as I can tell. The basics is guiding your tribe through the various ages...ie iron, bronze, etc. Anyone else pick it up?

Didn't even know about it till you posted. Looks interesting and it is 15% off on Steam for the next 25 hours or so. Looking forward to more impressions!

My son talked me into it. I played just the tutorial so far. I think it will be fun.

So played this some more. Enjoyable city builder. Its a lot like banished. I actually think the prioritization of your villagers is pretty good. They seem to prioritize decently enough. There is a small tech tree to go through and that takes you into different eras. Its not a AAA title, but for $25 its really not bad. Its a fun little time waster. The comparisons to banished are apt I find. Dont expect a lot of bells and whistles, but it does deliver a fun, and satisfying village building experience.
