I've been following this game for a couple months now.|
It's made by one guy and looks more interesting to me than any other city builder released in the last five years.
Here's a couple videos
Banished - Medieval City Builder
Pageof 6 First / Last
Like the look of that - and not a tacked on 'social' element to be seen - rejoice!
This looks like it'll be out by the end of the month, I can't bloody wait!

Far to technical for me to understand but it looks like we're almost there!
Nice - really looking forward to this ever since I saw the first article some time ago on RPS. So much interesting stuff in development now, I keep losing track - what's the name of that "build a settlement on a different planet" game again?
Not Maia, is it?
That's yet another one! But I meant Unclaimed World, I just looked it up.

I hadn't heard of either Unclaimed World or Banished. Both are now on my want list. Much obliged chaps.
That Unclaimed World sounds really good.
+1 Unclaimed world looks great, though it's a little worrying that there hasn't been a word from the devs in the past 3 months
Steam store page up with a new video

Awesome, this is right up my boulevard.
Me too man! This is definitely my kind of winter game too, perfect for sitting in front of the computer with a thick jumper on and a cup of cocoa. ^_^

So when is it out then?
Originally planned for the end of the month, the game is mostly finished. According to the last devlog, he's just adding tutorials and adding in achievements.
Looks like he might just make his deadline.
New gameplay vid, asstemps cranked:
Looks nice that. Reminds me of old settlers before it became cartoony.
Any idea on price?
Release date confirmed - 18th Feb! No news on price.

This looks great, love a good city builder.
Hour long gameplay video. Honestly it's a bit boring without commentary

Will be buying this on Thursday coming \o/ (birthday money ftw...)
While I have it on my Steam wishlist, I think I may get it from Humble instead, you get a Steam key anyway...
On twitter the dev said you'll be able to buy it from their site too.
Yeah, I'll be buying it directly from the Shining Rock site (if it's not too busy). You get a steam key and a DRM free version iirc. Reddit seems to think more money goes to the dev if you do it that way.

Anyone know if Eurogamer plan to review this?
A couple of Eurogamer staffers are very interested in this game, there's even a page for it here: http://www.eurogamer.net/games/banished-pc
Fingers crossed they'll have areview out for it, I'd prefer an EG let's play though.
