Against the Storm

Entrant 2023


A dark fantasy city builder that challenges players to rebuild a fallen world in the face of never-ending storms and a Queen with low tolerance for failure. Lead an expedition to reclaim the wilderness, found new cities, and create a network of settlements as you exploit lost riches. Against the Storm brings subtle blends of survival and roguelite mechanics to city-building games. You're not just building one city, but several - a vast, prosperous network powered by diverse fantasy races, each with their own specialisations and needs. You must explore and expand out into the forest, and gather resources to send back to the Scorched Queen to meet her ever-growing demands. And if her impatience doesn't get you, the Blightstorm eventually will, and the process will start all over again...
