About Life is Feudal: Forest Village

About this game

Life is Feudal: Forest Village is a feature-rich, town building simulator strategy game with engaging survival aspects. Lead your people: a small group of refugees who were forced to start again on an unknown island.

Terraform and shape the land and expand with houses, pastures, orchards, farms, windmills and many other buildings. Forage in the forest, hunt for prey, grow crops and domestic animals for food. As Winter creeps up, ensure you stock up with enough firewood, charcoal and warm clothes to survive, and remember: a lack of vitamins in good rations may lead to disease and could even totally wipe out your village!

You can oversee your village from a birdseye view or occupy one of your villagers to control and perform tasks in a first person view to speed things up or just to explore.

Some of the more exciting features:

  • Advanced farming system. Different crops and fruit trees require varying amounts of moisture, man labour and time in order to ripen ready for harvest. Your pastures and hens require hunters to protect them from forest predators.
  • Switch between birdseye and first person views. You can play in a birdseye view, watching over everything and issuing strategic orders, or you can possess a villager and play from a first person perspective, performing everyday tasks along with your fellow villagers.
  • Terraforming and pavement. Terraform land around your settlement to enable construction of larger buildings. Pave roads to speed up the movement of your villagers and thus improve the economy of your settlement.
  • Diseases, food rations and vitamins. Diseases spread faster in cold weather, especially if your villagers lack warm clothes or their food ration is too plain and lacking in vitamins. Try to stock all types of food possible (meat, fish, bread, vegetables and fruits) to keep your villagers’ healthy.
  • Dynamic ecosystem. Villagers continuously walking in the surrounding woods will scare wildlife deeper into forest. Excessive farming or woodcutting can lead to flora and fauna extinction thus lowering the flow of meat, hides, mushrooms, berries and medical herbs to your stocks.
  • Real time weather and seasons system. The seasons effect your village’s needs: summer droughts will force your farmers to water your crops and rainy days will force them to dig trenches to drain excess water, and you’ll need firewood and warm clothes for your villagers in Winter.
  • Morale and increasing population. Keep your villagers happy and their families will grow - that is, if their needs are being met! Living in overcrowded hostels, unfulfilled requirements and even bearing witness to a villager’s demise will reduce morale and their productivity.
  • Disasters. Lightning can hit tall buildings that are standing on hilltops. Tornados can leave a devastating trail of destruction across your settlement. Earthquakes can destroy your houses and even topple trees. Make sure you are prepared to face those challenges!
  • Mod friendly. Our game is designed to be modder friendly. Game modders will have access to AI, animations, task and resource management, navigation, sounds and many other game systems. Those systems and assets can be completely changed through game scripts written in LUA.

It is somewhat of a copy of the Banished with some tweeks and improvements as well as some new approaches such as first person view of the workers.

If you've played city builders before, you won't find that there's anything groundbreaking, but at it's core it's an okay game.

! Introduction ! We all love & remember the classic City-Building/Resource Management Game, [i]Banished[/i]. Well, this game is basically an upgraded version of Banished. The only other game I played from this genre is obviously the very famous “Sims”. When comparing this game to Sims, you’ll see a lot more details in Life is Feudal. ! Storyline ! Alrighty, so this game has no Storyline. It’s mostly a “Survival/Objective-based” Game. You have to chase the objectives and make sure your “Village” thrives & survives. It’s a [b]Game Over[/b] when everyone in your village dies. The game takes place in the Middle Ages Setting. Playing the game from a God’s-Eye view, your main objectives are to collect resources, assigning the required workforce, constructing a small village & ensuring that its inhabitants survive even through the harshest winters! ! Gameplay Mechanics ! Like all games, Life is Feudal also has its ups & downs when it comes to Gameplay. You start with a few shacks, people, resources & the most important thing, Food. The game revolves around Food as you obviously need to have a steady flow of food as everyone eats as though they never had a morsel of food for years (In simpler terms, they eat a shit ton of food). Farming, Hunting & Fishing are the primary ways of attaining food. Micromanagement is vital in this game. Building bigger houses means more people (as the inhabitants mate when in a house they feel is nice). So, as the population increases, demand for resources increases too. The game ensures that the first three in-game months in the game are hell. Whenever you think “Oh, the game is going smoothly right now!” with a big smile on your face, the game heaves a lot of challenges at you. Be it a Famine, low fertility rate, or even a Viking raid! So, the game certainly doesn’t lack in Challenges. Yes, it has a tutorial. Well, this tutorial does give you an overview of the basic mechanics. But the rest is up to you. There will be a lot of Trial-And-Error moments where you would have to restart the game. The game has a wonderful guide (which I think was made by a developer) that I recommend you to check out! https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=759536778 awesome guide. There’s just a lot of content in the game. From different ways your people can be affected to climatic changes & its effect on everything, Life is Feudal is rich in content. But when you have too many things in a game, you are...

Pretty fun little game, there isn't really a goal other then survive as with most of these kinds of games but you really lose track of time playing this. Game looks good, runs smooth and has a little learning curve of about a hour.
