Eremite Games and Hooded Horse are launching their survival city builder Against the Storm into Steam Early Access. This game challenges players to rebuild a fallen world in the face of never-ending storms with a Queen who doesn’t accept failure.
The game has players leading an expedition to reclaim the wilderness, found new cities, and create a network of settlements in a subtle blend of survival and roguelite mechanics–all in a city-building title.
Players will not just build one, but several cities–creating a prosperous network powered by diverse fantasy races, each with their own specialisations and needs. Amidst the danger of the wilderness, your city must survive and thrive, lest the Queen grow disappointed, leading to the fall of your city as you know it.

With roguelite mechanics, no two sessions are ever the same. Between cycles, the Blightstorm will reshape the wilderness, uncovering new areas to explore. A tech tree and a meta-progression system tied to the Smouldering City will give you advantages through successive runs, and randomised building blueprints will mean the way your settlements develop will be different every time. Build your way to prosperity, or fall to the elements of the wild.
Against the Storm is now available on Steam for £17.99, 19,99€, $19.99 , or ¥ 2480.
