Unique hunting mechanics and a roster that delves deep into Warhammer history make the Norsca a distinct addition to the game.

Jul 25, 2017

A faithful genre piece, Aven Colony takes the socio-economic juggling of settlement building games like Tropico and Banished, transports it to space, and establishes a pretty successful outpost.
