How much cheese is too much cheese?

Hi guys!

HexLands is a turn-based, city builder, strategy game with roguelike elements, set on peaceful, procedural medieval islands, ready to be settled! Expand your empire to as many islands as possible, as they are getting less and less habitable! How far will your empire reach?

Your goal is to expand your empire to as many harder and harder procedural islands as possible to maximize your empire’s population!

You have to efficiently use the available resources, tools and traits, adapt to the environment, otherwise you can’t establish a strong enough colony to set sail for the next one! Once you’ve set sail, choose the next island by whose perk and resources fit your playstyle and strategy the best!

And as usual, I'll make videos about my progress, so I can get some feedback, and make a friendly community  Grin

Every turn, you have to make the hard decision of… what to build. Simple, right?

But here’s how it becomes a bit more interesting:
  • You can only choose from a maximum of 3 random, buildable buildings,
  • Construct buildings with mechanics varying from simple to complex,
  • Gather different resources for different purposes,
  • Complete procedural quests for rewards,
  • Collect and use varying special cards which can be saved for future, maybe less fortunate islands!

So choose your next move carefully, try considering everything and plan ahead! One bad decision and you may have just made the island’s growth come to a halt in the next or so turn!
Once you can’t expand any further, you meet with your empire’s score. Can your colonies reach the top of the leaderboards? Wink If you want more challenge, you can turn on the optional timer mode which is ideal for speedrunners! Smiley

This game offers you:
  • High replay value - Explore endless procedural islands!
  • Relaxing atmosphere
  • Multi layered resource management
  • City building on medieval islands
  • Chance management
  • Perk tree to offer you customisable, varying playstyle
  • Master the game and climb the leaderboard!

But doesn’t offer you:
  • Complex story
  • 4X Strategy
  • Multiplayer
  • Combat & Violence - But who knows, maybe a simple combat will come!
  • Lootboxes
  • 40 man raids

If you are interested in this project, feel free to join our Discord community.

Here's the first devlog, hope you enjoy! Smiley

Thanks for the feedback in advance!

Hi guys!
Release is far away, but UI elements are already done for not yet existing features! Grin
Thus the upcoming Steam page will already look good from day one!
Details in the video! Smiley
