Buildings Have Feelings Too!, a citybuilder in which the buildings talk, is out now

Manage their hopes and fears and stop them collapsing

If you were a building, what kind of building would you be? I'd like to say I'd be a grand old hotel down by the sea, but over a year of lockdown eating makes it more likely I'd be a dilapidated old factory and condemned as a fire hazard.

Buildings Have Feelings Too! suggests there might be hope for me, anyway. It's a game in which the buildings of feelings - and wants, fears, arms and legs. And it's out now.

BHFT! is a city management and puzzle game, in which you're constructing buildings as per usual, but also meeting their needs and maximising adjacency bonuses to unlock new types. As you play, your city progresses through different eras, from Victorian through to modern day. And, if you screw up, buildings will demolished forever.

I like city management games, and I like city management games that have a different approach to the genre. The king of city puzzling right now is, to my mind, Concrete Jungle, in which you construct a city via a customisable deck of cards.

I don't yet know if Buildings Have Feelings Too! will live up to its buildings' cute walking animation, but we'll have a review along soon. In the meantime, you can find it now on Steam.
