After A Hugely Successful Next Fest, Banished Inspired ‘Settlement Survival’ Releases Early

Challenging city-builder Settlement Survival has officially launched onto Steam for $14.99. After a hugely successful Next Fest as one of the most downloaded, wishlisted and played demos of the festival, Gleamer Studios are inviting players to lead their survivors in search of a new home, 4 days early.

Inspired by the genre-defining Banished and now launching into Early Access on October 11 for $14.99, players will be able to carve out their own slice of home. Offering deep gameplay for hardened city-building enthusiasts, Settlement Survival allows players to manipulate the landscape, manage limited supplies, plant crops, hunt wildlife, gather resources, and develop trade routes; players are given complete creative freedom to build their dream settlement.

With gorgeous low-poly graphics, Settlement Survival’s looks might be deceiving: prosperity won’t come easily. Featuring seasonal weather cycles and natural disasters that directly impacts your settlement, from torrential rain and heavy snowstorms to tornadoes and fires, you’ll need to heed the early warning signs to survive.

Combined with rare blueprints for unique builds, complex development routes for new buildings and abilities, and town Mayors who determine the character of your home, it’s down to you on how you manage the needs of your citizens, without upsetting the delicate balance of their lives.

Settlement Survival is available now on Steam as an early access title for $14.99.
