I didn’t quite expect to be re-reviewing this game, but I am glad I am able to give this game a positive review. After about a year of near radio silence from the devs, they updated the game, keeping the main gameplay loop of the old version, but adding quite a few new features and overall just made the game a much more enjoyable experience. If you had this game a year ago and are wondering if you should return to it, I’d definitely say yes. For anyone who never played the original version, but is looking for a short and sweet (roughly 20 hour) experience that combines both idle and base building gameplay, I’d say give it a go. The devs seem like they now intend on routinely updating the game, and as of this review that have been following through with their promise. One last thing before I end this review, if you do end up getting the game, you get to experience pretty much everything you can do in the game before you pass the two hour refund mark, so if you don’t enjoy it in the first two hours, you can know you probably won’t enjoy it and vis versa. I left my original review below if you’re interested on why I originally rated the game negatively.

Fairly small and uncomplicated idle game.

Progress can be sped up by manually clicking, but it functions quite well on its own for quite a long time before more upgrades are needed to make more progress.

My one big problem with the game (at the time of release; this is an early access) is that there isn’t enough information behind some of the upgrades. Some upgrades will state a percentage, but not telling me if the bonus is additive or multiplicative with other upgrades on the same building. Speed increase upgrades are equally secret. No information on whether it reduces time by percentage or seconds. This makes it difficult to discern which upgrades are worth going for.

Citizens is a turn-based hybrid of a city builder and strategic puzzler where you create beautiful cities, manage resources, plan long term investments, trade with foreign civilisations and look after your subjects. Explore beautiful islands, deal with difficult problems, and think about your next move very carefully, for it could be your undoing!

Planning your expansion is extremely important. Play through a challenging campaign which puts you into a large variety of scenarios, focusing on economy, trade, and warfare. If you prefer a more sandbox experience, try Challenge and Free build modes, where you are given more freedom to explore and experiment.

If you feel you don’t need to know anything else, just try the demo! Six challenging islands are all yours to conquer. Be weary though, for you’re not alone in this world; there are others who already inhabit it… and they won’t let you take their land without a fight.

Our demo offers you a taste of what Citizens is like. It presents you with early-game mechanics and showcases the basics of the grid-based combat system, which is greatly expanded upon in the full release.

Your feedback is super important to us. Join our discord, pop us an e-mail or even write a message on the community board; let us know what you think, what you like and what you don’t like, so that we can make the game even better. The Demo will be continuously supported along with the main release.

As an architect of your settlement, you need to carefully exploit the resources around the area. With a limited number of turns to achieve your goal, every move counts. Explore over 50 different buildings spread over several production chains and extract or process over 30 different resources, including but not limited to Timber, Pottery, Cheese, Wine and various forms of Weaponry. Collect tax from your Citizens as they pay for luxury goods, provide your people with jobs and build a glorious civilisation. Along your journey you will meet other civilisations with whom you can trade, or wage war.

Citizens offers:

  • New approach to city-building games

  • Campaign with challenging quests

  • A ton of replayability!

  • Combat and Trade

  • Endless fun with random level generation

Meet various civilisations along the way. Sightsee the Aztec pyramids, trade with the people of the Orient, and defend yourself from plunderous Vikings! Focus on trade or combat depending on which path you take in the campaign. Certain civilisations might even have some interesting resources for sale, unobtainable by your own hand!

Citizens offers a grid-based combat system; it’s designed to feel familiar to strategy veterans, and to be easily picked up by newcomers. If battles are not your thing though, that’s fine. Diplomacy is always an option! Well… most of the time.

Be mindful… Other civilisations are not your only enemies. Fire and Plague can be as dangerous as the Sword.

With all this doom and gloom above, just keep in mind this…

If all you want is a peaceful and soothing experience, then try out Free-Build mode! Place buildings without any restrictions on a randomly generated island, or try out economy mode for something more challenging: that’s where anything can happen! You’ll never run out of new lands to explore. Something will always be different.

One Lonely Outpost

One Lonely Outpost

A barren, alien world needs YOU to bring it to life!

Start out with just an ancient space-RV, your handy tech gauntlet, a handful of potato seeds, and work to build up your colony. Grow crops to attract colonists, build a town and economy, and work to achieve independence while establishing your colony as a prime destination.

Whether you opt for an all-natural farm or a more high-tech one, you’ll need to balance producing food with other activities on your planet. Explore alien ruins to learn more about this strange world, grow your relationships with the many different characters that will join your colony, and have a blast playing various mini-game activities along the way.

It’s One Lonely Outpost … but not for long!

Decide: Natural or Synthetic?

Order up some supplies from Delivz-On, fertilize the ground, and plant crops with a unique tending mechanic – blow off dust, clip off dead branches, and watch for bugs! Pursue either a Synthetic route with robo-cows and gene-splicing (watch for glowing cabbages), or take the Natural path where you raise Earth-based farm animals and hand-tend your prize crops for premium produce. With either path, the more and better food you can make, the more colonists you can attract.


Build a Community and Forge Relationships

Every colony starts out with just one person (and a robotic pet), but colonists from around the galaxy will come to conduct research and offer other roles or services to help you grow the colony into a full-fledged town. But our career isn’t everything in life – befriend your fellow colonists to find fully developed people with their own histories, lives, and dreams. Grow your rapport with more than just gifts from your farm; perhaps even one relationship will result in true romance!

Explore Ancient Ruins

Ancient alien ruins have kept their secrets for millennia – until you’ve come along. Discover why a barren world is full of all of the features necessary for life, even though according to top scientists it shouldn’t. Puzzle and/or fight your way past the robotic guardians and be rewarded with rare items and a deeper understanding of your new farm planet.

Customize Your Character

Develop a unique sense of style and personality with clothing options and character statistics.. Choose how to balance your strengths and weaknesses across farming, exploring, crafting, socializing, and dungeon-diving as you progress on your journey.

Play To Your Interests

There’s no set path to perfecting your colony. Any element of the game can be played in any order. Whether you choose to focus on tending your farm to unlock every perk, spend all day exploring ruins fighting robots, or dedicate yourself to building up the town and connecting with residents, fun and rewards await to be discovered along the way.

Share With Friends

Play online with up to 3 other friends in collaborative co-op as well as competitive minigames. Friends can either visit your existing outpost with a greenhorn character, choose to start a fresh world from scratch together, or take a short vacation on your main to see what other colonies are up to, all while developing new relationships and even building branching families with other player characters or NPCs.

Plantera 2: Golden Acorn

Plantera 2: Golden Acorn

The round blue Mellows return to tend to the garden once more and grow the big magical oak tree that have been rumored to have placed its seed there. Build up your garden around the tree to attract Mellows, round blue creatures that will help you pick up things and harvest your plants.

Tend to the oak tree and grow it to the sky to harvest its Golden Acorns.

Adorn your garden with decorations and watch as your garden grow more lush than ever before with new plants, bushes and trees and get populated by new animals, both in the sea, on the ground and in the sky.

If you want you can pluck trees and harvest plants yourself, or let your Mellows do the work for you while you watch or build and invest in new plants. The Mellows will even continue to work and tend to the garden while you are not playing the game!

As you play you will unlock new items and as you continue to expand and improve your garden your magic oak tree will grow even bigger with it, soon reaching its crown to the sky and beyond!

This is a cute, psuedo-clicker that is extremely simple compared to many of the other titles in the Clicker genre. Everything goes together very nicely. The only problem is that it’s mostly a quest to complete the achievements, and then there isn’t much to do. The garden gets maxed out. The upside is that it doesn’t require micro-transactions (I’m looking at you, Clicker Heroes, Adventure Capitalist, etc) to “complete” the game.

The idea is to build a garden with 3 layers of plants (trees in back, bushes in the middle, and vegetables in the front) to harvest, as well as animals to get “produce” from, such as wool, milk, eggs, and random stuff the pigs dig up. There are various critters that will try to interrupt the farming. Wolves and foxes will scare the animals, rabbits will steal vegetables, and birds will fly away with one produce item. Obviously this has minimal impact on the overall output, and they don’t really add much except something else to look at.

Create, expand and watch your garden grown in this super addictive and totally adorable casual clicker game.


Plantera is a simple and highly addictive clicker game, where the basic objective is to build and expand your own garden. As your garden grows, you collect more coins which allow you to further boost your garden (and coin collecting efficiency). Boosters can be bought with the coins, which allow higher value of produce, collecting coins when the game isn’t running for larger periods (I can currently leave my game for 12 hours, and come back to a large sum of coins waiting for me!), and guard dogs and scarecrows to scare away the critters trying to steal your produce! Though I’m not generally a fan of clicker games, I have really enjoyed Plantera thus far.

The Islander: Town Architect

The Islander: Town Architect

I bought his game because of the beautiful pixel graphics not expecting some suprisingly assortment of prop decorations you can place in the game. To my suprise this game caught me off guard being the must laidback casual sandbox city builder steam has on their games list. It has become one of my favorite games. The only thing i would say bad about it is I hope the devs and makers of the game read the comments that additional content would be excellent as this game has a lot of potential! The great part of this game is its your own pace, dont worry about stressing out about anything “expiring” or “collecting” in time, just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful feeling of a stardew valley/sim farm game remixed :D

Tentatively I would recommend. If you can get it on sale for like 90% off. Firstly, It suffers from a lack of design options and no way to import your own. Secondly, I get frustrated by the day/night cycle. I’ll be in the middle of a design for my island and it turns night and on my monitor that means I can’t see anything that is not lit with the in game lighting options, and I was unable to find any way to stop time so I could complete my design without the night interrupting me. Third, the island cannot be expanded, so space is severely limited. And finally, a couple of the achievements are tricky because they only count sometimes. I was only able to get them be deleting my saves, which should not be a thing. Seriously.

Garden Of Mooj

Garden Of Mooj

Garden of Mooj is a monster farmer simulator where you raise cute little slime monsters called Mooj. You find different types of food and feed them to your Mooj and it will train their stats in different ways. Every night even scarier monsters come to try and destroy your Mooj statue and you must defend yourself using the Mooj you have raised. Once you train your Mooj, their abilities can unlock gates to allow you passage into new areas, as you make your way across the world trying to save it from a mysterious enemy. Mooj is fairly similar to games like Slime Rancher and the Chao Garden from Sonic Adventure, and was a lot of fun. The game also has a really decent jazz/easy listening soundtrack.

Real player with 19.6 hrs in game

I find this game strangely addicting and loads of fun despite how simple it is.

Its a good game for just not worrying and getting a good chuckle and you can make your mooj fairly different.



Silly and cute
