Hostile Environment

In the game by the Polish studio Eremite Games, we play the role of a governor, who has been entrusted with the mission to develop areas overrun by wildlife. The settlements managed by the player, along with the capital known as Burning City, are the last hold of civilization facing the eponymous storm.

The gameplay based on the expansion of a functioning network of settlements and the fight against hostile environment has been enriched with elements associated with roguelite games.. Numerous modifiers and the recurring threat of the storm influence the shape and character of the world, providing constant challenge and fresh fun.

Warm reception from players

As proven by SteamDB, Against the Storm has been warmly received by the gaming community. The game boasts an average number of active users of about 3,000 people. At its peak it was even 8 thousand concurrent players.

The positive reception of Eremite Games' work is confirmed by the reviews of Steam users.:

"An original approach to the genre of city builders - a combination of construction and roguelike that works... surprisingly fantastic! You can confidently expect that this will be one of the better games of the genre, which is not another clone or rehash, but brings new ideas and solutions to the topic."

"Quite enjoyable. Despite having played for almost 10 hrs, I don't feel that the game is repetitive, which is what I feared the most. I'm still discovering something new, so I'll play some more."

Further development

Although the game remains in early access, the developers are eagerly adding more features and content. Last week, a new fox-like race came to the game as part of the Sentinels of the Forest update.
