About Townsmen: A Kingdom Rebuilt

The medieval building strategy game has a complex economic system that requires you to build production lines, trade efficiently and maintain a balance between tax revenue and the satisfaction of your townspeople. Your city will face seasonal difficulties such as draught in summer and food shortage in winter. A wide variety of buildings and many different jobs for your citizens will help you overcome these and other obstacles. Build military barracks to stand up against vicious bandit attacks, or employ a medic to fight the plague. Firefighters, hunters, farmers, blacksmiths and many more will help you build a stable community. Gain experience for all your deeds as governor of the city and use it in research to improve efficiency through technological advancement.

With the included DLC "The Seaside Empire" you can start your journey to the Mediterranean right away!

Expand on the existing gameplay with new buildings, like the military castle that allows for easier defense, the coastal harbor that increases your trading capabilities, or the inn that helps you earn money for having the most beautiful town. A vast amount of new decorations and other useful buildings allow you to create the medieval seaside metropolis you have always dreamed of.

The included Seaside Empire DLC also adds another layer of depth with the introduction of difficult choices in the new short story events.
