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:
