If you're not quite sick of pandemics yet, The Irregular Corporation and Foxy Voxel have a new game for you. Going Medieval is a colony survival sim set just after the ravages of the Black Death. It's coming to PC later this year.
In Going Medieval, you'll run a colony of villagers attempting to build a life for themselves in the year 1346, just after the Black Plague's worst excesses. It'll be your job to defend your village from barbarians, outlaw thieves, and religious fanatics. Foxy Voxel and The Irregular Corporation describe Going Medieval's society as "classless, borderless [and] lawless". You can check out a new trailer showing off some gameplay for Going Medieval right here.
You'll need to plan your settlement and build it according to your specifications. To do so, you'll have a wide variety of materials available to you. Going Medieval has survival elements, so your villagers will need to be defended from bandits, outlaws, and the elements. Hunger and the weather will be factors, meaning you'll need to keep an eye on more than just the proverbial wolves at the door. Your villagers will all have unique histories and agendas; figuring out how best to serve them is a core part of Going Medieval's gameplay. It'll also have a full single-player element, so if you're a lone wolf, there's plenty here to like.
Going Medieval will launch for PC later this year. You can wishlist the game right now on Steam if it looks like your kind of thing. No word yet on any kind of console release or a specific date for launch. We'll bring you more on this one as we get it.
