New Home: Medieval Village is a zoning-based medieval themed city building game. In this game you start out with a blank map, using one of three different sizes (Small, medium or large). Players can also choose difficult level and what season they start in.
The game offers a tutorial that helps introduce you to the game, including basics such as how to build a dock and start your village. If you’ve never played the game before, you should definitely use the tutorial, otherwise feel free to skip it.
Clean art style
Most city building games have very poor graphics, but New Home: Medieval Village has obviously made an effort to correct this. One neat feature is that roads can curve in the game, which is not common in other building type games. Trees in your village blow gently in the wind, and it is easy to move the camera around to view different angles. One drawback however, is that there are no resolution settings to choose from at all.
A typical city building game
Bew Home: Medieval Village plays like a combination of Banished and Cities: Skylines. It has all your basic features of a building game, including the usual demands from villagers such as food, medical, and defenses. This needs to be balanced with taxes to help carry improvements along.
The medieval backdrop is refreshing, but it dates the medieval period as the 1800s—the same era telephones and lightbulbs were invented. A better description might be the 1600s.
Even so, the game is overall well done with lots to do. It’s intuitive enough that you don’t need the tutorial to get started, but it does help if you have never played this style of game before. There’s something of a learning curve placing things like the dock, which needs to be placed exactly right in order to lock on, but otherwise playing the game is fairly easy. The goal is to attract wealthy villages (Was that even a thing in medieval times?) by building nicer service buildings. You can build schools to educate the villagers, as well as libraries and other appealing buildings.
Wealthier villagers give you more money to work with, so you can continue to grow the village over time. Tax them too much of course, and they’ll leave for villages that allow them to keep more money in their pockets.
You’ll also need to defend them from enemies, and provide them with basic resources like food and shelter. If they don’t have enough resources, they will also leave.
New Home: Medieval Village is a fun game to play, but isn’t groundbreaking. The game offers a fresh look at an old favorite with a relatively new theme. If you like city planning games but are tired of modern skyscrapers, this game might be a fun addition to your current collection.
