Nebuchadnezzar, the great looking isometric city-builder that's very much like the old Impressions Games titles like Pharaoh and Zeus has a first post-release upgrade out and it's a big one.

This 1.1 update aims to tackle some of the bigger shortcomings of the initial release. While it is a good game, it's interesting and does give the feel of Pharaoh it was missing certain big things. Added in this update is a whole new freeplay mode with multiple maps to build up however you wish - which is fantastic.

Additionally there's: new difficulty modes to tweak the experience to your liking, a whole new Taxes and Wages mechanic, new buildings, walkers can be clicked to see info and have a little voice-over, missions 6-9 have had their maps enlarged, there's more tooltips, a UI scale option, an improved ESC menu and various bug fixes.  Localizations also made it in with new translations for Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Turkish.

Nepos Games have confirmed this isn't the only update coming and work to further improve and expand it will continue. Great to see as this has made an already good game much better!

Buy it now on GOG and Steam.
