Life is Feudal: Forest Village is a feature-rich, town building simulator strategy game with engaging survival aspects. Lead your people: a small group of refugees who were forced to start again on an unknown island.
Terraform and shape the land and expand with houses, pastures, orchards, farms, windmills and many other buildings. Forage in the forest, hunt for prey, grow crops and domestic animals for food. As Winter creeps up, ensure you stock up with enough firewood, charcoal and warm clothes to survive, and remember: a lack of vitamins in good rations may lead to disease and could even totally wipe out your village!
You can oversee your village from a birdseye view or occupy one of your villagers to control and perform tasks in a first person view to speed things up or just to explore.
Some of the more exciting features:
  • Advanced farming system. Different crops and fruit trees require varying amounts of moisture, man labour and time in order to ripen ready for harvest. Your pastures and hens require hunters to protect them from forest predators.
  • Switch between birdseye and first person views. You can play in a birdseye view, watching over everything and issuing strategic orders, or you can possess a villager and play from a first person perspective, performing everyday tasks along with your fellow villagers.
  • Terraforming and pavement. Terraform land around your settlement to enable construction of larger buildings. Pave roads to speed up the movement of your villagers and thus improve the economy of your settlement.
  • Diseases, food rations and vitamins. Diseases spread faster in cold weather, especially if your villagers lack warm clothes or their food ration is too plain and lacking in vitamins. Try to stock all types of food possible (meat, fish, bread, vegetables and fruits) to keep your villagers’ healthy.
  • Dynamic ecosystem. Villagers continuously walking in the surrounding woods will scare wildlife deeper into forest. Excessive farming or woodcutting can lead to flora and fauna extinction thus lowering the flow of meat, hides, mushrooms, berries and medical herbs to your stocks.
  • Real time weather and seasons system. The seasons effect your village’s needs: summer droughts will force your farmers to water your crops and rainy days will force them to dig trenches to drain excess water, and you’ll need firewood and warm clothes for your villagers in Winter.
  • Morale and increasing population. Keep your villagers happy and their families will grow - that is, if their needs are being met! Living in overcrowded hostels, unfulfilled requirements and even bearing witness to a villager’s demise will reduce morale and their productivity.
  • Disasters. Lightning can hit tall buildings that are standing on hilltops. Tornados can leave a devastating trail of destruction across your settlement. Earthquakes can destroy your houses and even topple trees. Make sure you are prepared to face those challenges!
  • Mod friendly. Our game is designed to be modder friendly. Game modders will have access to AI, animations, task and resource management, navigation, sounds and many other game systems. Those systems and assets can be completely changed through game scripts written in LUA.

Life is Feudal: Forest Village reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Early Access Review Banished 2.0 LiF: Forest Village is no different Than Banished 2.0. Actually everything is "stolen" many would surely say now. A brazen copy. But how much Banished Is really in Play? First of all, I love Banished. I like the Idea behind the Game and generally such Types of Games. Unfortunately, there are too few of this Kind. Forest Village, on the other Hand, is the Main Game "Life is Feudal" only from a slightly different Perspective and combines the Elements of the Main Game with a ... You could say Life Simulator. Village construction simulator?! Many Mechanics should later reach behind the Game, and you have to pay attention to many things so that your Inhabitants do not say "Live well-being." You also have to make sure that your Residents are doing well by not just needing Food and Clothes ... Vll. still Roof over the Head, where I wonder what ^^ for. Wildlife feeling in the ... Middle ages... YAAAY. But You also have to make sure that the little Pixel People get Vitamins. Yes, you really have to make sure that they always have their high Content of Vitamin C, B, A ... C.. DD .. etc. get them not only fish and ... Meat puts on the Table, but also Fruits and Vegetables. You also have to ... You should not be careful to play AVATAR 2.0 and cut down and tear down everything you have in front of the Bulldoooo ... The Shovel and Axe is coming. --Because a balanced Flora and Fauna is important for Getting berries and other wild Foods. The Exorcist is real! ... My Residents are BEST!!! ahhhh Another dress Feature-linen is the Possibility to dive directly into the Game and also influence it. Unfortunately, just a little more ... Early Access. Thus, there is the Possibility to "settle" into a respective Resident and steer him himself. To pursue his Craft yourself or just walk through his created Village. That's pretty Cool actually and better than just zooming you out. I have Problems-So ... The Game has ... Which one. Early Access & The Future The Game is still at a fairly early Stage of Development, and you can unfortunately see that to the Game as well. It still has some Problems and it also crashes, at least with me, very often just crashing. That's very annoying especially when you're just in the middle of the Game and you don't think about anything and suddenly the Game crashes. Very annoying. There are also some Problems and some cumbersome Mechanics like the Terraforming. This is very essential in the Game to build new Buildings, which ultimately have to be created Areas where the Buildings can also stand on them. Sometimes there is still a lack of mistakes here, because People have a partly funny Way to Find it. So I have already managed to "lock it up" a few times because the Way Finding only Detects a certain Slope that must be present so that the NPCs can run on it. A small Lift or Hill can therefore ensure that the NPCs can no longer return home. In This case, the finding Of The path also often does not recognize the Path that the NPC can walk 2 Meters next to one that is almost straight. Naje Early Access halt. A lot of things in the Game is not yet optimal or makes Sense. Look Zb. Here in the Forum there are Threads about whether it makes any sense at all (including Comparisons) to build certain Buildings or whether Effort XY is even worthwhile in the Cost-/benefit ratio. So as a Newcomer you should look at the Forum. There are many Problems and also Moments that can cause frustration. But what I personally think is good for is the later mod support you want to Offer. I just think through the mod support there's going to be nice great Stuff. Banished also has mod support and offers a wide Range of variety of extends here. Production Buildings, Residential Buildings and much more. Despite the Problems-A clear Buy Recommendation Anyone Who liked Banished will also like Forrest Village, simply because you also find it very much in the Game and know how what works or what certain Menus mean. So from me a clear Buy recommendation.
Forest Village is an awesome village builder game. Yes the concept is the same as banished, but it is better. I am totally addicted.
