This Steam game has just been announced, it has a free demo, and after trying it, it has become one of my most anticipated games

Despite never having been a big fan of the SteamWorld franchise, I have tried some of its games and I was even quite hooked on SteamWorld Heist back in the day, but I wasn’t even expecting the folks at Thunderful Development to surprise me with something that it’s as much my thing as Steam World Build.

With its characteristic robots as protagonists but completely changing the genre to present us with a city construction game, Steam World Build was announced yesterday for Steam with a free demo that you can try now. I did it last night and since then this kind of cartoon Anno 1800 has become one of my most anticipated games.

What begins as a very basic citybuilder, a reformulation of the system of year from Ubisoft in which to create houses for citizens, cover their basic needs, improve their tier to open new needs, and continue in that line in a loop full of buildings and challenges, soon discovers having an additional layer of the most interesting.

Steam World Build Plants you in front of a typical Wild West town headed by a train station. Build houses to get citizens, get wood, create a plank factory, extract resources from the map… You know how this goes.

So far so good. I signed for a game like this in which to get lost for hours to get away from the Ubisoft game hooked on, but then Steam World Build surprises you with an added twist, what happens under the city while your villagers go around going to work and buying their milongas.

The city that hides under your feet

At a certain point, when you have already upgraded some of your villagers, the possibility of repairing an old mine in the area opens up. The game here changes completely to present you with another face, that of a cave in which you will have to dig and place props so that your citizens can extract resources.

Like a kind of puzzle in which to discover paths that lead to new resources, building bridges to continue digging in previously inaccessible areas, and following the same style of adding more and more types of excavators that can get more and better resources, the loop of Steam World Build I thought it was a fantastic idea.

Although in the demo there is no room to see any of that and it stays a bit on the concept of balancing the balance of goods and money while you grow the city and the possibilities of the mine, Steam World Build It also promises defense of areas against the dangers of the depths, which can be used for a kind of tower defense or fight against waves of enemies capable of adding a layer that further increases the pique with the game.
