Who doesn’t love a good city-builder, especially when they look good? I have spent more hours than I care to admit playing games where you build a city and spend time fiddling with efficiency, needs, happiness and then watching it all go downhill because you didn’t plan for expansion.
Manor Lords looks like it ticks a lot of those boxes. Great looking graphics and some satisfying building coupled together with what seems to be a fairly meaty RTS experience. The part that completely shocked me was that this is all the work of one person.
Manor Lords is a gridless city-builder, letting you build your cities to look more haphazard than the neat grids and city blocks that we often end up with and it looks like you can zoom right in to watch the people work and get lost in Medieval life in Europe.
You can wishlist the game on Steam.
