If you are looking forward to the December's Early Access debut of Pioneers of Pagonia, we have good news. Developers from Envision Entertainment have released a demo version of this interestingly promising strategy game on Steam..

The demo enables you to check most of the basic gameplay mechanics and offers access to three maps of varying difficulty levels. However, as the developers stipulate, "it does not correspond to the quality and scope of the final version of the game."

The new work of the creator of the hit The Settlers, Volker Wertich, has already been tested by a group of interested players. From their sentiments it seems that we are dealing with a very pleasant and promising game. However, this does not mean that the game is free of any bugs. On the contrary, according to people who have already tested the new economic strategy, there is still a lot of work ahead of the developers to make the title better.

Here are some selected comments:

"Unfortunately, at the moment I can't make an iron shield in the forge. The indicator always drops to zero and production does not want to start," declares dlehmk.

"Paths way too wide (...) interface needs a lot of work - shadows and shading are missing, everything is too bright," criticizes black.

"Compared to The Settlers I miss a bit of that cozy character. Animations are still quite stiff and "normal", while in The Settlers everything had its own charm. The interface should also look more charming," suggests IIOIOE.

"Tree seedlings block any construction. Mature trees, sure, but can't you build over a sapling...?," wonders der guru.

As you can see, Pioneers of Pagonia for a known reason, will not avoid comparisons to The Settlers. Nevertheless, the new game does not have to be the loser in this duel. If the developers from Envision Entertainment listen to the opinions of players and refine the title, there is a chance that fans of the ruling champion will once again appreciate the undoubted talent of Volker Wertich.
