Website: http://www.shiningrocksoftware.com/ Banished is a game where you control a small group of settlers who are carving out a new life for themselves in the wilderness. It is kind of similar to the original Stronghold game with people being a major 'resource' and necessary to fill jobs, its resource stockpiles and growing from a village into a town. Over harvesting resources can lead to ill effects, particular when it comes to food and wood. There is also a trade connection (by boat it seems) which can be utilized for various goods and food supplies but comes with an increased risk of disease. The game looks really cool and is planned for a release later this year but is currently in alpha.
