is another startup simulator in which you are in charge of running your own game development

your employees forever. You will be able to make game engines, update
them with new tech, and revamp them when the code gets too messy! Advertise your games through a multitude of
ways: invite reviewers for an interview, start a mass advertisement campaign, contact online
personalities to create early playthrough videos of your game, hire agencies to shill
your game online, and even bribe reviewers! Running shovel-were company never was easier. I will let you know hopefully next month how
did the game do on steam in a meantime if you end up playing it before me give me a
shout in the comments. Our final announcement comes from the Foundation. I covered this game 2 months ago and today
I’m happy to let you know it past it’s goal on kickstarter and it’s on it’s way
to secure some extended goals. Foundation is a grid-less, sprawling medieval
city building simulation with a heavy focus on organic development and monument creation. The game features in-depth resource management
akin to the Anno (Dawn of Discovery) series, expertly mixed with city building elements
from Settlers, SimCity, and Pharaoh all topped with narrative encounters inspired by Crusader
Kings II to create the ultimate medieval city simulation! Setting to redefine the city-builder genre,
Foundation puts the emphasis on the organic aspects of urbanism in the cities of old,
powered by Polymorph Games’ in-house game engine, Hurricane, which allows for full mod
support and is optimized for the thousands of moving parts that come with building humongous
cities. As always links are in video description so

  2. Nice vid again.

    I find it funny that "Game Dev Studio" developers were trying to think of a new game to make then were like "Oh I know, lets make yet another game about making games" (and you featured 2 of those in this very video as you mentioned). Sounds like they ran out of ideas.
