Survival city-building game Synergy certainly looks different

By - | Views: 14,607

A city-builder not quite like the others it seems. Synergy from Leikir Studio and Goblinz Publishing has a pretty great pastel colour style to it. This is a survival game too, not just a standard city-builder. One I apparently missed that was announced during the PC Gaming Show.

"Humans live on a hostile planet. To ensure their survival, they must learn to survive in extreme weather conditions and in an environment that is not conducive to their development. Careful and pragmatic management of resources has become essential to the survival of human race, as has the morale of the population."

You can see the original reveal trailer below:

Sable (graphics) + Pharaoh/Zeus/Caesar (city-builder) + Banished (weather, seasons...) + Stronghold (happiness of its inhabitants), at least I think of them.
Sounds great, hope for a GOG release!

I was going to say, it sure looks inspired by Moebius:

Wow, that art style reminds me quite a lot of The Wandering Village.
That is a really nice art style...... Lets hope they nail the game play as well....

linux compatible, i like it. Still hate that crowd mood mechanics in city-builder games. But will try it on release.
I love the art style, it reminds me of Studio Ghibli's Nausicaa.
