No Longer Famished: Banished Getting Mod Support

Banished is, to hear Alec tell it, a desperate, painful, vexing experience, but in a (mostly) good way. Eventually, though, even survival against the brutal elements, creeping disease, and human nature gets boring. That's why we invented videogames, doncha know. Fittingly, then, developer Shining Rock is currently hard at work on an infrastructure that will allow Banished players to create even more videogames from the…

Out Of Exile: Banished Releasing In February

Things are going to get ugly in the intergalactic Milky-Way-orbiting RPS space pyramid when it's time to review splendid-looking city builder Banished. We've already divided into embittered, warlike factions in anticipation of the day we decide who'll do the honors. Those factions will, of course, splinter with time, rotting into sticky morasses of selfishness and treachery. The Smiths - made up of Adam, Graham, and…

Banished is a game of city-building, where you take a tribe of exiled folk and start over, and it looks absolutely charming. It's about what happens when you take the scale out of urban planning. You'll know the names and schedules of every little person pottering about…

Settling For Less: Banished

Banished is an independently developed settlement simulation, with a survivalist backbone. It's about heading into the wild and building to live rather than sitting on top of a casino and living to build. If memory serves, I haven't actually played a Settlers game since the second but Banished looks like it may well tap into the same part of my brain, absorbing hours of my…

SimSettlement: Banished Is About Survival And Life

I love being alive right now. Admittedly, there are many reasons for that - getting to see humanity clumsily barge its way into a new stage of evolution, being able to have pancakes pretty much whenever I want them, etc - but mostly because I get blindsided by amazing-looking new games on a nigh-daily basis. Banished, like so many others, has crept seemingly out of…
