Songs of Syx is a fantasy city-builder that made a bit of a splash at release selling a few thousand copies pretty quickly, but as always many more games appear and some fall off the radar but Songs of Syx continues expanding.

This Native Linux game had a lot going for it at release, so many put quite a lot of hours into it. Since the initial Early Access build in September 2020 they've added in new military units, a much smarter AI, entertainment, religion, reproduction, riots, cannibals, big war mechanics and the list goes on.

A new update just released adding even more mechanics to the game now including:

  • Personal homes
  • New tech tree
  • Elderly care
  • Disease & health
  • World camps
  • A new species and religion.
  • Balance and fixes

Check out the new update video below:

One of the best games I've ever played.

With the diagonal tool, one can even create natural looking settlements and cities.

I need to give this game another try. It's fairly complicated, so I'll probably have to start at the tutorial again. Seems to be a very common reason for me why I don't get further in certain games.

Yeah, I tried the demo maybe a year or two ago. Definitely a huge amount of stuff going on in the game, and this sounds like it's only gotten bigger.
