(17:00 CET, 08/11/22) Cologne, Germany: With only one week until Vile Monarch’s post-catastrophic survival city builder Floodland – published by Ravenscourt – makes a splash on Steam, the time is right to reveal the titles price, which will be £24.99 / €29.99 / $29.99
Coinciding with this, the developers have unveiled part of the games intro sequence, which gives players an insight into the mood and atmosphere surrounding the nomadic bands they are leading in their quest for survival.
Starting off on the outskirts of a drowned city, players lead your small group of nomads, rebuilding society from the swampy-ground up. Users do this by exploring the remains of the flooded city and scouring it for resources, relearning basic agriculture and fishing skills and turning a group of stragglers living in tents in a swamp into a thriving town.
Players do this through establishing and upgrading new buildings, repurposing old ones and researching ‘new’ (or relearning old tech) enabling you to overcome the numerous challenges you face.
But people will be people and the larger your settlement grows - and the more habitants it will have - the higher the chance societal issues will arise, meaning you may well face the same problems the old world had.
The question is, how will you manage your clans; will you unite the remnant of humanity or will you choose division and isolation? Either way, you will shape the society of tomorrow.
