Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, Player Attack lets you know which games were the most popular.
Released less than a week ago, Banished is a super-challenging city-builder, which does away with the idea of skill trees and embraces the idea of people being your greatest resource. It’s misleadingly simple and peaceful in its approach – little townsfolk wander happily, chopping down trees and fishing for dinner – until winter comes and their numbers dwindle in the cold. Finding the perfect balance is tricky, but hitting that note is endlessly rewarding.
#1 – Banished
In this city-building strategy game, you control a group of exiled travelers who decide to restart their lives in a new land. They have only the clothes on their backs and a cart filled with supplies from their homeland. The townspeople of Banished are your primary resource.
