About ISLANDERS

About this game

You want to build beautiful cities without investing hours on end into stressful resource management? Say no more! ISLANDERS should be right up your alley.

ISLANDERS is a minimalist strategy game about building cities on colorful islands. Explore an infinite number of ever-changing new lands, expand your settlements from sprawling villages to vast cities and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

If you’re thinking about buying ISLANDERS please keep in mind that we are a very passionate but small team of three. This is not a blockbuster experience with hours and hours of content. What we’d like to offer you is a simple game that lets anybody create and explore their own little worlds, while providing enough depth for players who want to challenge themselves. And you can get it at the price of a medium sized pumpkin spice matcha caramel latte.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have feedback, questions, or problems with the game. We’ll do our best to get back to you as quickly as possible and provide support if needed. Also let us know if you enjoyed the game, because that makes our day!

This game offers you:

  • Intuitive and rewarding city building gameplay
  • Endless amount of procedurally generated islands
  • A relaxing atmosphere
  • Beautiful, vibrant colors
  • Great for playing every now and then, discovering some new islands and beating your high score

This game doesn’t have:

  • Helicopters
  • Guns
  • Lootboxes
  • A cinematic story
  • Huge explosions (not even small ones actually)
  • Online multiplayer
  • Microtransactions
  • Orcs

Wanna know the specifics?

The gameplay of ISLANDERS is pretty intuitive. You start with a set of buildings in your inventory that you can place on your island. Placing buildings is rewarded with points. The amount of points you get depends on what surrounds the buildings when you place them. Gather enough points to refill your inventory and unlock new buildings.

Once your city is big enough you may choose to travel to the next island (they are generated procedurally, so you can literally keep exploring forever). If you run out of buildings the game ends. This is where you high five yourself for beating the high score, take a proud last glance at the epic city you've built and start just one more round...

ISLANDERS is inspired by amazing games like:

  • Bad North
  • Anno
  • The Settlers
  • Sim City
  • Kingdoms and Castles

There are no other choices on M1 or any mac. This is a good game for not more than few minutes, confusing game tactics and just pretty linear. This game should be worth less than 2 dollars for what it offers.

When I go this game I didn't think it would be as addicting as I found it out to be! I am a sucker for games with great graphics and honestly, Islanders does not disappoint. It looks really nice, the style is unique and nice to looks at. It's colorful and cheery in a way. The gameplay is easy, you only need your mouse and the rules are simple and easy to get behind. Yes, sometimes it's a bit frustrating when you have to choose between bad and worse building packs but all in all it's fair and a lot of fun to build on these very different islands. I find myself going back again and again to it, whether to play challenge mode or freeplay. The game is definitely worth a buy!
