Here is another one to watch...Strategy-City Builder-4X genre. "Northgard", it is in Early Access but the 200+ reviews have been very positive so far...check it out...

Gives Settlers vibes. Unfortunately game looks fictional fantasy. Same idea could have well been used for something more historical.

"Gives Settlers vibes". I'm sure the developers intended fictional fantasy...obviously not a game for you.

After just watching the two videos at Steam, it looks like a combination of the old Warcraft and Banished. The music is a lot like in Banished.

Positive = 227
Negative = 12

Pretty good odds so far.

Video here at YouTube about 35 min long to see what the game is like:
Northgard Link

I'm going to buy it later, when they get a bit further with it. The pause function needs work, right now it's not very user friendly. It's more of a "oops, the phone rang so I better pause the game" instead of pausing to look around. And a few other issues. It's a good game so far though.

Yes, it is in Early Access and hopefully the developers will get things ironed out.
