Architects turned game developers at Plethora Project and the amateur city planners of Devolver Digital have released the neighborhood-building simulator Block’hood on Steam Early Access.
Block’hood is a neighborhood-building simulator that celebrates the diversity and experimentation of cities and the unique ecosystems within them. Budding city planners will have access to 90+ building blocks to arrange and combine and to create unique neighborhoods and discover the implications of their designs. The game will embark on a story of ecology and understanding as additional resources are always needed to unlock new blocks, configurations, and combinations to create more prosperous neighborhoods. Throughout the design process, players will need to avoid the decay of their city blocks by making sure each unit doesn’t run out of resources and become a strain on the complimentary units around them.
Through the Early Access process developer Plethora Project plans on iterating on Block’hood, creating new units, and introducing new gameplay modes based on ongoing community feedback. Several major updates will introduce important changes to Block’hood like terrain creation, populated blocks, and new challenge modes to test even the most brilliant Block’hood creator.
Block’hood is available now on Steam Early Access for $9.99: http://store.steampowered.com/app/416210/
