Prep your snag list – Constructor remake is out now

After a couple of delays (builders, eh?) Constructor [official site], System 3’s remake of their estate-building strategy game from 1997, finally launched on Friday. You're an up-and-coming property tycoon tasked with building an empire while sabotaging rivals with dodgy plumbers, explosions, and gangsters. It was a much-loved British classic with lots of silly accents, including the voice actor for Boycie from Only Fools and Horses.

Cowboy builders: Constructor demo erected wonky

A demo is out for Constructor [official site], System 3's remake of their estate-building strategy game from 1997. I really dug the original and its classic silly British sensibilities, building up my own estates while sabotaging my rivals' neighbourhoods with dodgy plumbers, killer clowns, gangsters, and thugs. This remake has been delayed a bit and the demo has troubles of its own, but I am…

Tea break! Constructor HD delayed into April

Given that I once waited two years for a kitchen repair that still hadn't arrived by the time I moved out, I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised that the Constructor remake [official site] has been delayed again. Tch, unreliable builders! With their blue jeans. And their tea. Have you noticed they drink all that tea? [Didn't get that writing gig on My Family, eh?…

You Wot? Constructor HD Delayed Into Summer

Only a mug trusts the builder's estimate. Reroofing finished by June? Better stock up on firewood for a long, cold winter. The announced January 29th release date for Constructor HD [official site], a remake of the ace town-building RTS from 1997, made so little impression on me that I didn't even realise it had passed.

Build ‘Em Up, Burn ‘Em Down: Constructor HD Announced

After you've bowed to a wealthy tenant's demands and blown up their neighbour's giant gnome, then sent a gang of yobs out to terrorise a rival council's estate - backed up by a hippy holding a street rave to distract their council workers - by tossing bins and jeering, other city management games can feel a little dry.
