You control a group of exiled travelers. They have only clothes and a cart with food. They are driven to the bare land and now they are fighting for survival. There is no money in their society, but they can exchange with the inhabitants of other cities that sometimes appear. Such trade is one of the key ways to obtain many critical resources.
These people from the very beginning of the game know all the necessary technologies, but they can use technologies only after they have accumulated the necessary amount of resources.
The basis of the game is the management of society in the conditions of limited all available resources.

The main resource are residents. They need not only food - they also need happiness. Without this, people will live less and die more often, the city will cease to grow. Residents are engaged in 18 crafts, from farmers to healers, in the bowels there are ore and stone, on the ground forests grow.
For winter, warm clothes and fuel are needed. Cutting woods for firewood can not be reckless. Old forests give way to the herds of deer, which feed the townspeople, as well as some medicinal plants. Unreasonable exhaustion of any resource leads to death. There is no universal strategy in the game - each time the amount of resources on the map is different.

Banished reviews and comments

It's just one of the most awesome Games on the survival market! Just something else. You start your Village with 5-20 People, some Of them children, and first try to build Them friends for the Winter, as well as to collect Raw Materials. Fire for Heating and Building, Stones for Building. Then you build a Field and plant it so that you have Food for the Winter, when the stored Supplies run out. The Game starts very leisurely and quiet. The Farmers are busily doing their Jobs, as are the Children. For my Part, I had started too slowly to build Houses for the Couples of my Village so that they could live There alone (who likes to proliferate In a Homeless Shelter with 20 Inhabitants?). After a few Years, 20 of my 40 Inhabitants passed away at old Age and 10 froze the following Winter, as workers were not enough To Collect Wood. Of the remaining 10, 5 were in the Working Age who starved to death a short Time later. So I started again and expanded faster. The Problem now was that I built houses too quickly and so quickly came into the World Descendants who didn't work but ate for them. After a few Winters I also exrotated the Village. These are the first Problems you face in this Game. In Addition, there are diseases, poor Harvests or general Scarcity of Raw Materials. So all in All, this Game doesn't make it very easy. These Problems are further expanded with the Individuality of the Characters. Because if a Parent Couple loses all three Children in a Winter or because of Illness (and best of all, there is no cemetery), then they are more likely to stroll across the Marketplace or through the Village than work what turns out to be catastrophic Could if you don't have enough free Workers available to do their Jobs. In Contrast to Sim City, the Inhabitants have their own Houses and their Family and do not go arbitrarily to a House where "there is still Space." The Atmosphere this Game creates ranges from melancholy to peaceful and happy-all just through the hustle and bustle of The Workers and the-absolutely ingenious-music. I'm just realizing I should have made a Plan for myself, which is what I want to write ... Well, never mind. If you are still reading now, and want to have a Buy recommendation, you should get it: KUT YOU THIS ABSOLUT GELUNGENE MEISTERWERK! It is not important to generate money as in other City Development Games, but to really keep everything in Order! And compared to other survival games, your only Enemy here is just nature-so the Weather, Diseases (only take in Nomads if you have enough Pharmacies!) and the (not always abundant) raw Materials. There are no Murders, no aggressive Animals or Cyborgs, no Russians, Amis or Nazis who want to kill you, apart from the Merchants who sometimes demand unmetered goods as an Equivalent! So far, I have only once managed to build a City in over 100 Years, which has 800 Inhabitants and which-except for small Corrections every now and then-works completely for itself. 10/10 Points for this Masterpiece!
