Is there really no thread for this genre yet? If anyone knows of one that I couldn’t find, please point us there.
My search turned up mega-threads for RTS, Board gaming, VR games, Tower Defense, and of course the adorable Space Game thready thingy.
City Builder and Colony Manager games (CBCM) are quickly becoming my new favorite category, replacing RPGs which have been my jam since the mid 90’s.I was surprised to see that I’ve spent more time on CBCM games in the past few years then any other category, according to Steam history. I was even more surprised at just how many games fell into this group. From Craft The World, Rimworld, Aven Colony, Surviving Mars, Northgard, etc.
So, what have been some of the best games in this genre?
What’s coming that looks great?
What can advance this genre going forward?
