Dice Tribes: Ambitions is a pretty interesting looking strategy survival game mix, where you move dice around to keep your tribe and village going. It might not sound or even look like much but it seems like it might surprise you with the mechanics involved.

It's not a particularly well-known game and so far it only has around 23 Steam user reviews, but they are 100% positive. If you're after something different, perhaps this is one to give a go? The developer also just recently updated the game to provide a Native Linux build too. The developer describes it as a "dice worker placement game".

More about it:

Starting with a small number of villagers, you will need to manage them and grow the tribes in order to complete one of the ambitions. Opportunities and Dangers lies ahead and you will need to dispatch your villagers to take care of them. Prepare your villagers as you attempt to complete one of the ambition to win the game.

Key Features

  • Choose from one of 6 tribes, each with their own village building.
  • Choose from more than 15 different structures and construct them to aid in your Ambition.
  • Choose from one of many ambitions to complete, including hidden ones.
  • Draft mode that forces you to adapt to different restrictions and challenges.

Available to buy on Steam.

You know, I like strategy-oriented games. And I generally find that after the first bit, I'm paying attention to the mental side, not to the graphics.
But there are limits. That is the most amazingly boring, brown user interface I have maybe ever seen. On top of which, the "tribes" seem to be so far beyond generic, their description so abstract, that again, it's gonna be really hard to identify with their success, or really experience the feeling that they represent "tribes" of people in any way.

So there might be an interesting mental challenge there, but it's like they went out of their way to make it as bland as it could possibly be.

I tried the demo, it is a bit messy (not really clear on what is doing what), but there are some good ideas.
Part of the gameplay reminds me of Dicey Dungeon (re-rolling dices until you get that ONE value, anyone ? )
