1849 Next Month; Early Access Now

SomaSim announces a May 8th worldwide release date for the Windows, OS X, and tablet editions of 1849, their retro-styled city-builder set during the gold rush. In the meantime, the game is also now available via early access through the links on this page, though the tablet versions are only currently offered in Australia and New Zealand. Here's word on the game:

With all of the peril and possibility of the new frontier, 1849 challenges players to build a thriving mining empire in 19th century California. Inspired by SimCity and other classic simulation games, 1849 is set within 20 real Gold Rush-era cities, each with unique topography and natural resources that influence how they grow.

Transform Northern California from a rugged backwater into an economic powerhouse: build mines, establish farms, attract workers and keep up with their ever-increasing needs, set up trade networks from the High Sierras to San Francisco and beyond. With a campaign mode featuring 20 unique scenarios and an endless sandbox mode, 1849 promises hours of addictive fun in a compact indie package.
