    The artwork and general atmosphere give off strong Witcher vibes.

    What's wrong with it? Slavic folklore games aren't very numerous, but they typically have British accents. Thea and Thea 2 are a prominent example. Same goes for medieval German stuff. I assume it highlights the medieval, folksy quality of it all.

    The truly weird part is this thing on the right. A Slavic goblina?

    I'd rather they started with not including blacks in a game based on Slavic folklore. This is much more abrasive. And for what? How many blacks are going to play a *strategy* and *city builder* about *Slavs*?

    The narrator in Thea was actually quite fitting, I find. Slavic folklore is primarily associated with village folk, forests and swamps, and cosy or weird fairy tales, not so much with Slavic paganism and its militant achievements. So it is fitting that it should have a more 'Shire' aspect to it.

    Actual Black gamers I know of wouldn't care less about the race of characters they play.
    This is to satisfy game journos so they don't downrate the game because of supposed 'racism'.

    Niggelf, or black elf, as seen here in Netflix's The Witcher. Those that live inside bigger human settlements sometimes are also known as ghetto elves.

    Which "city builder elements"?
    And which "inspired by Slavic folklore"?

    If it exist I would feel interested but there seem none~

    Given that I loved Thea 2 (not Thea 1 for some weird reason) I am very excited for this.
    Building and managing a small colony of tough survivors in some rough and hostile, and optimally magical, wilderness appealls to me immensily.
    Also single player isometric survival horror games can work really well, as seen demonstrated by the impressive Darkwood.

    Slavs disgust me. I don't think I'll be able to enjoy this game.

    This looks like it has quite a bit of potential. Games of hybridized genre often feel like less than the sum of their parts though. Still, I’ll keep an eye on this and maintain some cautious optimism.
