Si le concept d’un city-builder dans le large cadre d’une république soviétique fictive entre 1960 et 1990 vous intéresse, vous serez probablement content d’apprendre que ce futur et original jeu en chantier depuis 2019 vient de rejoindre l’éditeur texan Hooded Horse.
Pour l’occasion, un ancien trailer est rediffusé, montrant le jeu et ses principales caractéristiques lors de son lancement en phase Accès anticipé, il y a quatre ans. Heureusement vous trouverez sur la chaîne YouTube du studio 3Division de nombreuses autres vidéos, la plus récente datant d’il y a un mois, et introduisant les mécanismes de gestion des déchets.
Quoiqu’il en soit pour l’instant, c’est probablement une bonne nouvelle pour les amateurs de ce jeu comme pour ceux curieux de voir ce que pourrait hypothétiquement donner une simulation urbaine et économique ouverte dans le contexte historiquement fermé et peu florissant de l’Union soviétique. Nul doute que Hooded Horse aidera certainement ce titre à atteindre et probablement dépasser le cap de la version 1.0 dans un avenir proche.
