Lords and Villeins has a plain art style, but it has a pretty interesting hook as a city-building simulator.

Lords and Villeins

Lords and Villeins is a lighthearted pixel art city-building simulator that will allow players to shape the dynasty of a ruling family. Players will grow dynasties of medieval families and watch them evolve and interact with one another as you build their homes. It all sounds vaguely creepy, but it's lighthearted, I swear. 

Players will manage both the peasant and noble families while expanding the production chain, work with the church and train an army for the king, because what's a king without a medieval army at his beck and call? There's 70+ objects for players to work with in order to build, decorate, and improve your settlement, so you should be able to do a lot with what you're being given.

There's also going to be 20 different zones and professions that can be performed by the villagers for players to manage, 90+ resources when there's a fully functional production chain, and a seasonal cycle to simulate weather conditions, humidity, and temperatures that will affect your villagers lives.

The full version of the game to have random events that players will react to, politics, and mod-friendly support and Steam Workshop support for players to upload their creations. The current plans are that the full release will be in Spring 2022, but words are wind so we'll have to see how the Early Access period goes. 

Lords and Villeins is coming out in Spring 2021 on Steam's Early Access, so be sure to wishlist it here. For more information on Lords and Villeins, be sure to stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
