Ships Ahoy - 1849

Indie developer SomaSim announces the release of 1849, their city building game set during the California gold rush. The Windows and OS X editions of the game are available from the SomaSim website as well as GamersGate, GOG.com, IndieGameStand Store, and Steam, and there are also mobile versions for Android and iOS. "Over the last few years casual city management games have gained popularity, but they're nothing like the in-depth simulation games that defined the genre back in the day. Those were games I could lose myself in for hours, building a massive empire out of nothing. We've tried to bring back this gameplay and experience in 1849," says developer Robert Zubek. "It's a game tuned for today's technology and players -- the scenarios are designed so you can play for a few minutes on the bus if that's all the time you have, or spend hours building a huge bustling city. At its heart 1849 is a classic city management game with all the bells and whistles that make this genre so much fun." Here's an overview:

Set during an unparalleled period of American history, 1849 features 20 levels set in existing California cities brought to life with graphics inspired by period photographs and surviving architecture. In each level, players must establish and grow the local economy while balancing citizens' needs against the backdrop of real Gold Rush scenarios and challenges. Should Sacramento be a mining town, a farming community, or a hub for trade? Will the pioneers flocking into Monterey become productive prospectors or devolve into unruly drunks at the local saloon? That's your call!
