Kingdoms and Castles - A charming city builder aims for a Steam Greenlight success

When I was but a young gamer one of my most favourite pass times was to build mighty castles, look after my villagers with food and housing, and defend them from attacking foes. This is probably why I was so hooked on games such as Castles and even The Settlers. So to find a game that is very similar but with dragons and vikings, in a world of charming detail I just had to give it a mention. This is Kingdoms and Castles, a brand new city builder that not only needs your Steam Greenlight votes but extra crowd funding as well.

When I said similar sure it has all the usual city/village building, defending mechanics found in most games of this type, but I really like the fact you can build very impressive castles, especially as according to the developers the castle building system is very flexible and allows all sorts of castle designs. You can try many different layouts to best protect your kingdom and express your glory and power as a king or queen. 

But wait there's more, as if you want a living breathing world not only does it have a stylised procedural cloud system, but a season cycle from summer to winter, a realistic tree growth algorithm simulates the forests AND wildlife such as birds flying about the landscape. Thus with all these features listed, it all sounds so awesome in Kingdoms and Castles, a city builder set in the viking age, that deserves to get a huge thumbs up.
