what this brings to the game. We will see new industry chains with 2 new
cargo types: Sand and Steel. With addition of those resources we will see
new buildings Sand quarry with 2 upgrades, Steelworks with 3 upgrades some new building
recipes and factory upgrades. 4th Era brings you 7 more quest and addition
of new internal script director so it’s possible to add more quests easier in the
future. 4th Era is advance diesel age which gives
you access to 4 fast diesel engines. That come as rewards for quests. Players will gain access to new wagons for
sand and steel as well as highly requested iron wagon. Buildings now have onboard cameras (172 camera

or even take a look inside one or two buildings). Vehicle’s (or building’s) on board cameras

October last year and plans to take you through 7 Eras of train history with currently 4 eras
implemented to the game. Mashinky received respectable 85% positive
review score out of over 900 reviews submitted. It’s time to talk about new releases of
last month. Cities Skyline Industries released on steam
on 23 of October and gathered 81% positive review score out of 200 reviews submitted. Industries does to industrial zones what Parks
did to entertainment. Building on experience gained from the parks
developers allow you to create new industrial areas in which you will be able to fine tune
your industry. You can now see exact stages of production. You can follow your products from harvesting
to processing, storage and production; to then transport them to commercial zones and
export out of the city. In industry area you can place highly specialized
industrial buildings to build and manage the production chain from raw material extraction
up to final end product. Industry Areas are divided into four types
based on the natural resource they are processing: Farming, Forest, Ore and Oil. These areas can level up upon reaching productions
goals and staffing requirements New industrial buildings include Extractors,
Warehouse Facilities, Processing and Auxiliary Buildings, Industrial Props and Roads. Unique Factories, such as Food, Toy, Furniture,
Car and Electronics produce luxury products, and require a large number of workers, water
and electricity as well as input from your industries. Finally you will see 3 new industry policies
and 4 new city wide policies as well as 5 new maps added to the game. Industry and Parks combined add new level
of depth to the game. Project Hospital released on steam on 30th
of October and has received so far great reception sitting at 90% positive review score out of
over 300 reviews submitted. Unlike many new tycoons this one is not an
early access which is great news. I support early Access initiatives but I get
tired of not seeing full releases any more. In Project Hospital you take dual role of
being a doctor and manager at the same time. Your job is to design your very own hospital,
you can either use predefined models or tweak every detail to you desire depending on how
involved you want get. Then you can jump on doctor duty and actually
work in a place you helped design. You will need to manage your staff ensuring
appropriate skills and work satisfaction. Game features campaign mode: which puts you
in shoes of crisis manager trying to save few failing hospitals. As well as sandbox mode allowing you endless
hours of gameplay starting from simple clinic all the way up to running your multi-story
hospital. Time for upcoming games. For a while tycoon and base building genre
had a little romance with old soviet infrastructure. So here we are with Workers & Resources: Soviet
Republic scheduled to release in first quarter of next year. It what developers describe as the ultimate
real-time soviet-themed city builder tycoon game your job will be to construct your own
republic and transform a poor country into a rich industrial superpower! You will have to manage all aspects of your
own republic with planned economy, including mining resources, manufacturing goods, construction,
investments, and citizens too. Game offers you ability to Create your own
industrial complexes with loading and unloading stations, storage, warehouses, and factories. You will be in charge of building the infrastructure
and managing its traffic, including roads, railways, sidewalks, conveyors, wiring, and
pipelines. Your job will be to wisely place and connect
factories, houses and warehouses, and make the most efficient connections or not it’s
soviet republic at the end of a day. Finally game will feature Economic simulation. Prices of resources on the global market are
changing over time as you play –one day you can sell or purchase steel for a $100
per ton, but in a few months the cost can rise to $200 or decrease to $50. The price of everything is connected to the
cost of work and resources. Foundation is set to release on Steam in first
quarter of next year. Foundation is a grid-less, sprawling medieval
city building simulation with a heavy focus on organic development, monument construction
and resource management. 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 ant-farm 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’ proprietary game engine, Hurricane, which allows for full
mod support and is optimized for the thousands of moving parts that come with building humongous
cities. There is a fair bit of content from the game
available on youtube already. As developers already sell the game from their
own website in its early access stage. I am torned when it comes to this game. On one hand it looks absolutely stunning and
I would love to play it. On the other hand price point is almost double
of that of Cities Skyline and developers already have 2 DLCs scheduled. I am always weary when it comes to games with
bunch of DLCs scheduled before even game has released. I think some city building fans still have
a bitter taste from Surviving Mars and it’s DLC pack. In my opinion you should stay consciously
optimistic and wait to see where development of this game goes. Okay guys that is it in this month Indie Game
News. If you know of any other games that should
be featured in next month updates or you released a game yourself please contact me at [email protected]

  1. I got in on the ground floor of the Foundation Kickstarter so I'm pretty ok with how much I payed for it. Really looking forward to checking it out. Thanks for the cool list as usual, found a couple of projects that will require my attention in the future 😀
