Video Update: Buildings Have Feelings Too!
Last summer we reported on the announcement that Buildings Have Feelings Too was heading to Switch. We still have to wait a bit longer for its release sometime later this summer, but for now we have a new trailer to digest. Check it out!
Think you know city building games? Think again! Merge Games and indie developer Blackstaff Games introduced the ultra-quirky city-sim, Buildings Have Feelings Too! in 2018 and are proud to be back with new information and a brand new ‘second debut’ trailer!
Selected as one of Microsoft’s highlighted indie titles for GDC 2019 and making its way to Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in Summer 2019, Buildings Have Feelings Too! brings the city to life and turns its inhabitants into currency. Grow your city to a bustling metropolitan centre with an array of shops, offices, entertainment and amenities, but take care to keep your city thriving or risk losing your buildings being demolished forever. How will you react to the tides of change when your buildings have feelings too?
Imagine a city where buildings can walk and talk to one other. Each one has its own aspirations, hope and fears. Most of the time they’re just trying to get along with each other and make it through the day. Buildings Have Feelings Too! is a city management game with character. Players must grow their city while making sure the individual buildings thrive, or risk them being demolished forever.
As time progresses, new industries can be researched and new architectural marvels built. In turn, world events might cause buildings to fail and businesses to go bankrupt! Players must discover new ways to attend to their city’s needs. This could involve refurbishing a building or simply grabbing it by the hand and moving it to a nicer part of the neighborhood.
As players progress they are able to grow their city, allowing for multiple neighborhoods. Specialist areas, such as busy finance hubs or bustling theatre districts, become available. Additional layered attributes such as electricity supply, noise pollution and transport add more complexity and challenges for players.
- Discover and equip a wide range of businesses from the Victorian era right through to the modern day.
- Befriend a range of Buildings, each with their own aspirations, hopes and fears, as they come to grips with the changing world around them.
- Customize and rearrange your city’s layout by moving buildings and find the perfect combination for your city to grow.
- Expand across multiple neighborhoods of your city, discovering new landmark characters and districts.
