MeanAstronauts have announced that they are developing and publishing Robin Hood - Builders Of Sherwood, which is a title that combines RPG and city-building elements. The game has you as *gasp* Robin Hood, where you build your own forest camp in Sherwood Forest to eventually drive out the noble class of Nottingham. Check out the blurb:
Robin Hood is an action adventure game combining RPG and City-building elements, where we will play the role of a classic hero to fight to defend the oppressed by tyranny. The game is in a third person perspective. As the king of thieves, we will steal, rob, fight, ride a horse, shoot a bed, help the poor and also develop a forest village and its community. In the game, we will have an open world that we can freely explore.
Players will meet folk legends such as Lady Marion, Little John, Brother Tuck, Allan from the Valley, and Will Scarlet. The main task that the players must accomplish is to build the largest possible community for the outlawed rebels and to look for recruits from the surrounding farms and villages. The player will even recruit from the residents and guards of the city of Nottingham as they move in to take down the nobility of Nottingham.
As seen in the trailer, the game is in third-person until it switches to an isometric perspective when building Robin Hood's village. The village will have specific guilds to train them in specific guilds such as guards, hunters, robbers, builders, and farmers. Players will also trade with local farms and town traders and set up ambushes of royal convoys in Sherwood Forest, rob the houses of the nobility, and fight dangerous bandits.
