The “world’s smallest city-builder” in The Block releases onto PC via Steam today

From Press Release:

‘The Block’, a teeny tiny citybuilder from solo dev Paul Schnepf (The Ramp, Islanders) and indie publisher Future Friends Games (Exo One, Laysara) is OUT TODAY on PC via Steam

About the game:

‘The Block’ is the world’s smallest citybuilder – a bite-sized toy about city-building on a small scale. Rather than a sprawling metropolis, players create a single pretty city block. Parks! Towers! Houses! Plazas! Place randomly generated tiles on a grid and watch one corner of an unseen town come to life.

Pick from a variety of sizes, colours and environments, but don’t sweat too much over the details. Each level can be completed in a matter of minutes, while you let the chill vibes and beautiful colours wash over you. Just zoom in and zone out!

Game features: 

  • CHOOSE from a variety of levels and sizes!
  • CREATE a tiny city block from randomly generated tiles!
  • BASK in the glory of your adorable creation!
