For those of you that missed the Nintendo Indie world Showcase, Isnalders is a minimalist city-building strategy game where you’ll construct cities using a range of in game mechanics. Across the constrained space of an individual island, players can place buildings in the most ergonomic way to earn points, reach the score target to build more (& cooler!) stuff. No two games should turn out with the same challenge thanks to procedurally generated islands. Everything from lush green hills to dry deserts and snowy mountainscapes awaits explorers in Islanders.
“Making ISLANDERS was always about bringing city building to new audiences, so we’re thrilled to release the game on console for new budding island constructors (Console Players) to give it a try. We wanted to make a cozy, relaxing strategy game and we can’t wait for people to be able to play ISLANDERS from the comfort of the couch” Friedemann Allmenröder – Co-founder GrizzlyGames
