Foundation : premier trailer

Voici une jolie bande-annonce pour ce futur intéressant city-builder offrant la possibilité de construire très librement dans un contexte médiéval. Le jeu proposera un gameplay a priori assez novateur privilégiant l’aspect organique de l’expansion d’une ville. Le moteur graphique Hurricane développé par le studio Polymorph Games devant permettre entre autre l’affichage d’un très grand nombre d’éléments, sans restreindre leur placement à une grille. La gestion de ressources sera aussi à bien prendre en compte. Et les joueurs auront en outre la possibilité de modifier le jeu, par exemple pour y ajout leurs propres nouveaux types de bâtiments. Un programme ambitieux qui pourrait donner lieu à une belle surprise à l’avenir.

Pour plus d’informations sur Foundation, actuellement en pleine phase alpha et pour lequel une version Early Access est désormais disponible, voyez cette fiche sur Steam, ou le site du studio.



Foundation is a grid-less, sprawling medieval city building simulation with a heavy focus on organic development, monument construction and resource management.

In this strategy/city-builder/economy simulation game, players must create a prosperous settlement as the newly appointed lord of a region untouched by man.

Setting to redefine the city-builder genre, Foundation puts the emphasis on the organic aspects of urbanism in the cities of old, powered by Polymorph Games’ proprietary game engine, Hurricane, which allows for full mod support and is optimized for the thousands of moving parts that come with building humongous cities.

Among other things, the engine provides the player with robust building tools, to create countless unique monuments that will seamlessly integrate into your settlement.

With medieval architecture and urbanism at the forefront of its design, Foundation’s vision is to allow players to recreate cities of that period as they envision them or even as they really were.
