Watch the Foundation devs show me how to play their game competently for EGX Digital

It is no secret that I both really love early-access medieval city-builder Foundation, and am also not very good at it. Luckily, I was able to wrangle Polymorph Games' creative director Philippe Dion and community manager Andy Ashton to show me how it's done, in a combined interview and let's play for EGX Online.

Feature: From great foundations we grow

Foundation’s updates and new UI will make it the city-builder to beat

I know that many readers will have been anxiously awaiting news of Aliceburg, the scenic seaside village that I have been growing in lovely medieval city-builder Foundation, particularly since the Great Accidental Bread Famine of Winter 2019. At this point, it is on the verge of becoming one of my favourite games of all time, full stop, and it's not far off getting a sexy…

Feature: We built this city! We built this city on bread and cheese!

After its recent update, lovely city-builder Foundation has never been better

It's been a while since I played early access medieval city-builder Foundation (shamed by the unintentional yet embarrassingly forced starvation of my villagers). January brought with it v1.5, probably one of the most substantial updates yet. Increased strain has been put upon my villagers and their supply chains, but I still find it one of the most relaxing city-builders I've ever played - surely worth…

Feature: Also I'm about to start taxing everyone

Turns out I was the one starving my Foundation villagers all along, my bad

Regular readers will know that for a while now, I have been quietly playing Foundation, a lovely medieval citybuilder in early access, and every so often I pop in to give you an update. The last update was a stroppy one, because as part of my food production chains I was pumping out more bread than Jesus and his miracle, and yet the villagers were…

Feature: They're eating muddy berries and whining

My furious idiot villagers will not eat their bread, and now they’re starving

Last time I wrote an update on my town in Foundation, a very sweet medieval city builder, I had described said update as "biannual". I am upgrading that to "quarterly", having checked in on it again today and found that I need to reassess several things I claimed in aforementioned previous update. I claimed, will what I now view as ill-deserved confidence, that "once you…

Feature: Visit scenic Aliceburg

Lovely medieval city builder Foundation has been updated, so let’s have a tour

Nate's review of Oxygen Not Included made me interested to try it, and I got about ten minutes in before deciding it wasn't for me, very politely, as if I were refusing a slice of immensely complicated fruitcake from a granny. "Look at all nice bits in it!" she is saying. "I know, I respect your talent, but I do not like those bits all…

RPS-o-chat: we’re in love with medieval city builder Foundation

Alec: Foundation is like a ba… no, I already did that. Foundation is - and I’m projecting onto it a bit here - a reaction against city-builders and management sims increasingly inclining towards survival and punishment, in this, the age of streaming and gitting gud. It’s a cod-Medieval town management game, in which the pressure is largely off, and really the focus is more about…

Feature: Like a warm bath, but with windmills

Foundation is a delightfully indulgent new city-builder

Free-form town-builder Foundation, which popped up on Steam & GOG early access last week, falls squarely into the category of "games I wholeheartedly recommend but struggle to say many useful things about." It's like a bath. Baths are good. I like baths. You should take more baths. But I'm reasonably sure you don't want to hear about what I listened to on the radio, what…
