Community management sim game Community Inc. is now available on Steam, publisher Tiny Build has announced.
If you’ve ever wanted to manage your own community in a fantasy world filled with a range of exotic, wondrous creatures that you can create alliances with or go to war against, Community Inc. could be the game for you.
Developed by T4 Interactive, Community Inc. puts players in the shoes of a new manager who must build a happy community and trade with the other races in the world. However, the happiness of your community is extremely important as it’s needed to power portals, as well as keep your workers, known as Lings, from disobeying their master, you.
A large chunk of the game revolves around building your own village, with a number of different buildings, objects and items able to be crafted, built and placed into the world. To keep a happy and thriving community though, players will have to ensure that they provide their workers with a basic salary, food, clothes and a “healthy environment”. If their needs aren’t met, your workers may begin turning on each other or your village with a number of unexpected events lurking in the shadows.
Here’s a few things you can expect from Community Inc.:
- Village Building
Build your own village with many types of buildings, you need to decide what kind of objects, items or workbench you want inside. There are more than 150 items to craft. Every item and object has a reason. For example, craft a Wood Cabinet and put it inside the houses to increase your storage space. Roads can make them walk faster… and more.
- Your workers
The Lings works for you. You need to provide basic salary, food, clothes and a “healthy” environment. It’s up to you to decide how they work and where. Beware, they can start conflicts with each other and even set your village on fire. See them talking and eyes open for their status. Each one has unique traits and also attributes that you can control.
Sandbox maps with random generated nature based on your initial profile. Custom maps that you can build yourself. Talk, trade or fight with other races. Collect treasures and sell it or use it on your community. Random events that can turn your whole village into a nightmare from day to night. See how weather impacts your food and workers.
- And More!
Rain and snow will change not only the visuals, but how you will handle your village. Craft better clothes or they can get sick. Craft better weapons and armors to face evil creatures or random thieves. Accept contracts and make enough Surplus (our currency) to make your community bigger. And, if everything goes wrong (or bad for you), you can just sell the village!
