I saw an early access ad for a new game called Foundation. Its set in medieval times where you create and manage a medieval village, to a town, to a city (I assume) – billed as “the ultimate medieval ant-farm simulation”. The in-game art style is terrific and I do like a good “city builder”.
I like the idea that there is no strict clock to race against. Its created and published by Polymorph Games.I’ll be hoping to grab it on special rather than full pre-release or release price, but I’ve added i to my shortlist anyway to keep an eye on.

hey distribution companies I have a message from Australians who dislike most of the TV content here – both paid and free-to-air….I’m a fanboy, make it easy…
As a Game of Thrones fan, I’m both excited and appalled that we could now buy the Iron Throne. I mean it can’t be purchased with gold alone, can it? Ask a Lanister I guess.
At USD$30,000 they are going to be few and far between, and certainly profitable to produce. I wonder what GRR’s cut is on the merch? At that price I’d want it forged from steel, that or take a huge block from my mortgage. >.> Continue reading →
Here is a quick play summary of the first five sessions of the Ars Magica game called Ascendency of the Warp. Content is collated by me, and contains contains in-character descriptions from many of the players.
