Hearthlands is the fantastic looking city builder in early access that we took a look at recently, and it is now on Steam.

Fun fact: They use my previous article on it directly on their steam page!

About the game (taken from Steam)
Hearthlands is a medieval/fantasy city-building real time strategy game in which you take a role of a king in a procedurally generated world. You can not control your subjects directly; instead you focus on city-building, resource management, diplomacy, heroes, magic and other things a typical king deals with on a daily basis.

The game is very flexible: you can build up a powerful ream and rule the lands with an iron grip, or establish a humble fishermen's village. Or create a trading empire. Or found a small, but well-defended outpost or raider's camp. Or become a host of a wizard's manor.
All characters, from a hauler to a hero have their own minds and behavior patterns. Sometimes it is interesting just to watch people scurry about minding their own business.

Check out Hearthlands on Steam, but it's also available from Humble Store and Desura (scroll down on their website).

It's a fantastic game. Glad it finally came to steam.
It's reminds me of The Settlers. I loved that game too.
I can't wait to see what else gets added.

I hope they make it so you can rotate the isometric camera, I don't like turning everything seethru to say lay a road behind a building.

Also hope they add the ability to zoom the camera in and out to some extent. Bit like you can in Prison Architect. Sometimes it be nice to zoom out and get a bit of a better view of whats going on.
