What a wonderful game. It's fun and straightforward, yet deep and challenging. It has idle elements, with some base and research management requirements. The graphics style is beautiful, it is very polished and there are no microtransactions or ads anywhere. This is what mobile gaming SHOULD be like. I can't wait to see what the devs (Edit: Dev, it's just one guy! Even more impressive!) do next - they have a customer for life in me =)

Kind of slow anno like, only complaint is no way to salvage buildings and get resources back I've seen, but I just set sail to my first two new islands, so when I get there I'll see if I unlock anything. I do appreciate the building has a planning mode where you can place multiple buildings before confirming to build them all. I'd like to say in general the UI is really slick. The more destructive options are behind locks you have to undo to prevent you from hurting yourself.

Thank you for the nice review Ivan! In the first round you don't get resources back by salvaging buildings, but once you finished the palace you can choose a custodian with a powerful ability for your next rounds. One of them the Scrap Collector enables you to get back all resources spent by demolishing and even more :) Best wishes, Tobias

It is AWESOME so far after ~10 hours, only bummer is lack of QOL (like resetting a whole island), population usage vs. production, etc. Also settings don't save consistently, particularly sound and notifications. I keep turning them all off then I'll go back and some are back on. Also, duplicate notifications, sometimes as many as four for a single event (e.g. ship arriving). Way worth the asking price though. Love an ethical indie game dev :) would love a Patreon to further support.

Thank you for your great review Hazel! On my Discord I have a roadmap of things I consider to implement and try to improve the QoL over time. I'm happy about any suggestions! What do you mean exactly with resetting a whole island? If you have reproducible steps of your bugs I can fix them more easily in the next update :) Best wishes, Tobias
