Publisher and developer Gleamer Studio today announced that challenging city builder Settlement Survival will now launch in Steam Early Access four days earlier than originally planned.
The decision to move Settlement Survival's Steam Early Access launch forward comes after the title's demo became "one of the most downloaded, wishlisted and played" among those that took part in October's Steam Next Fest.
Naming Banished as its source of inspiration, the game blends a cozy low-poly aesthetic with the need to "manipulate the landscape, manage limited supplies, plant crops, hunt wildlife, gather resources, and develop trade routes."
Resource shortages aren't the only things that can spell doom for your settlement, as the title's seasonal cycles can bring about natural disasters like torrential rain, snowstorms, or tornadoes.
Settlement Survival's new Steam Early Access release date is slated for October 11, but you can already follow and wishlist it on Valve's storefront. Its initial build comes with all of its core features.
The developer plans on improving the game and adding content over the course of "at least six months" before releasing the game's full version. These additions include updated levels and additional historical stories, mod tools, a tourism system, as well as more complex logistics and transportation.
