With all of the peril and possibility of the new frontier, 1849 challenges players to build a thriving mining empire in 19th century California. Inspired by SimCity and other classic simulation games, 1849 is set within 20 real Gold Rush-era cities, each with unique topography and natural resources that influence how they grow.
Transform Northern California from a rugged backwater into an economic powerhouse: build mines, establish farms, attract workers and keep up with their ever-increasing needs, set up trade networks from the High Sierras to San Francisco and beyond. With a campaign mode featuring 20 unique scenarios and an endless sandbox mode, 1849 promises hours of addictive fun in a compact indie package.
I really simulation games like this so I couldn't wait to try this one out.
I played it for a few hours and I must say this is a really fun game. The graphic isn't the greatest but it is pretty good for a indie game.
I am a fan of simulation games since I played my very first simulation game back in 1998 you will most likely enjoy this one. It isn't easy but it isn't very difficult either and it is loads of fun and it is different than other games I have been playing lately . Only thing I didn't like is that it is repetitive .
I give this game 3 out of 5
