    Just came across this as it came out recently on Steam and seems to be getting good reviews and a decent player base. Seems to be a Dwarf Fortress / Rimworld clone with a bit of Stronghold thrown in. Set in the medieval era, no fantasy, no sci/fi. The game uses voxels and allows you to build vertically, establishing walls, towers or underground areas like dungeons. It looks fun and it's always nice to have more medieval games that aren't fantasy imo.

    Steam reviews seem generally pretty positive but most note that it's still pretty early on, the devs have released a roadmap and expect the game to be finished in a year but reserve the right to add or change things as community requests grow. Really hopes it all comes together, looks like something special here.

    I saw players compare it to early versions of Rimworld, but in 3D and medieval. It definitely looks interesting.

    Won't replace Rimworld for me but will definitely be keeping an eye on this.

    I just saw an ad for this on Youtube, what the fuck? Is it really an indie game?

    It's like Rimworld meets Stronghold's castlebuilding.

    As I said, it's basically Rimworld meets Stronghold in a fully 3D environment where you can build high walls, bridges, etc. It's pretty cool but doesn't have half of Rimworld's content yet, especially if you factor in the mods. It has no Steam Workshop support yet either so idk about what its modding scene is gonna look like, if there's going to be any.

    The main difference between this and Rimworld is the fully 3D environments and constructions. You can build high walls and position your settlers on the walls like in Stronghold, and enemies have siege weapons like catapults and walls crumble to rubble when destroyed. So if you're desperately looking for a game with good siege battles, this one is worth it.

    The game has only been out two weeks and hasn't even had its first update yet so I think comparing it directly to Rimworld post-launch w/ mods is kind of weird.

    as for modding, this is from their FAQ on the steam forums:

    edit: seems there was just an update but it's mostly bug fixes

    Yeah I am also waiting to see what their update frequency is.
