A bite-sized sci-fi introduction to colony management games
I’m a sucker for anything based on Dwarf Fortress or Rimworld, and so Dream Land is right up my alley. It’s cutsier and simpler than its colony management forebears, but it makes some smart choices to streamline the experience to make it a good fit for mobile devices.
Dream Land put me in charge of a rag-tag group of either pioneers or bounty hunters, depending on which one of them you ask, who have crash-landed on an unknown planet in pursuit of someone named Liam. The English translation is a bit iffy, and so I was unclear on the relationship between the characters—burly, red-haired George constantly calls everyone else “children!” when addressing the group, but I took that as a strange character trait he picked up in space.
