So the day has finally come. Finally the #neighborhoodbuilding #simulator Block’hood is now #available on Linux. Due to hard works of Plethora-Project. The game is already listed on Steam for Mac and Windows PC. So this marks yet another impressive title that deserves a native release.
So Block’hood gameplay celebrates the diversity and experimentation of cities. While including a unique ecosystem within them. Budding city planners will have access to 90+ building blocks to arrange and combine. Therefore creating unique neighborhoods and discover the implications of their designs. The game will embark on a story of ecology and understanding. Since additional resources are always in demand to unlock new blocks and configurations. All used within different combinations to create more prosperous neighborhoods. Throughout the design process, players will need to avoid the decay of their city blocks.
