Another TAB clone, hopefully better than Conan. It certainly seems that more thought has gone into it, involving flying cities that can be moved around a level, in a similar vein to January's unfortunate Volcanoids.

Suncrash wrote:A survival city-building game where cities can fly.

Dream Engines: Nomad Cities takes place in a wacky, whimsical world full of strange science and dreams. In order to survive in this strange, nightmare-infested, post-apocalyptic world, you must build and defend a flying city using old-world tech. Explore the world in search of scarce resources, fight off weird nightmare creatures, and find out about the old empires and their dream-tech.

Features
  • Design a flying city, the last hope of your people.
  • Survive in a world where society was destroyed by nightmare-born creatures.
  • Manage production lines when resources are scarce.
  • Choose when to stand your ground and when to relocate away from danger and search for new sources of raw materials.
  • Explore a quirky world full of strange science and dreams.
  • Balance between expanding your city and building disposable infrastructure that will be abandoned when you are forced to flee.
  • Keep an eye on your city's weight and fuel supply, or you'll find yourself grounded at just the wrong time.

This is finally coming out on the 14th and it looks like it's shaped up to be a They Are Billions/Factorio mashup.

I don't like the "nomadic city" concept, and the game's theme is suspect. I don't see soldiers for example. WTF you control only one character? There isn't even any multiplayer?

Still, if you're yearning for this type of game, you might want to check it out. It looks far above the typical wannabe in this genre.
