09/24/2015 - Cole Powered Games Announces New PC Title Concrete Jungle
12:15 am pdt
September 23, 2015 – Stroud,
UK – ColePowered games LTD. has released
the city planning deck-builder PC game 'Concrete Jungle' .
Concrete Jungle – A City Planning Deck-Building Game
Concrete Jungle is a new take on the city building genre
that swaps micro-management for a more strategic and puzzle-orientated style of city planning.
You have a deck
of selected cards which you can use to place buildings. Each building will affect it's surroundings in different ways. The
aim of the game is to clear city blocks by gathering the required number of points from your residents, giving more room to
build. As the city grows, bigger and better new buildings can be added to your deck!
As you get opportunities to
hone and refine your deck, residents will demand more from you. You'll find yourself inadvertently creating zoning puzzles-
playing against your own past planning decisions.
Alternatively engage in competitive city planning against challenging
AI or local players. Take it in turns to place buildings in the same city and battle over the affection of your citizens!
Concrete Jungle was successfully 450% funded through Kickstarter in November 2014.
The game is avilable
through Steam and Itch.io for $15.99/£11.99 with a launch discount of 10%.
ColePowered Games LTD. is the
company name for one-man developer Cole Jefferies' creations. Visit online at http://colepowered.com.
