Create your cities from a large set of customizable buildings, manage various production chains, negotiate with neighboring towns to trade, define taxes and policies, and watch as Ostriv’s world reacts to your decisions in a natural way.

detailed economic simulation and human behavior
There's a strong emphasis on interaction with your citizens. People in game act like people: they have their own motivation, needs and skills. Citizens will take jobs only if they are satisfied with them (or they are desperate). They can sell goods and services to each other on the local market. Wealthy citizens could start their own business in your town and hire other people. You will need to influence your city by means of setting prices, taxes and various policies. Each decision will certainly lead to some reaction of the society.

- trade
You can conduct negotiations with other cities to conclude the most profitable trade agreement. Explore nearby cities by sending messengers to find more import and export possibilities.

transport
For more effective resource transportation inside the town or for outer trade you will need vehicles. Wagons, fishing boats and wheelbarrows could be built by a local carpenter or to be bought from outside.
The breeding of draft horses and oxen is also required to move resources as well as for cultivation of fields.

unrestricted building placement
There’s no any kind of grid or angle restriction for placing buildings. Any building could be placed on any angle. Building on slopes is also available.

roads modeling
Dirt roads are formed in a natural way at places, where people move the most. You can build paved roads for more comfort and better aesthetics, but they’ll be used only in case of reasonable placement.

Ostriv is now live on Steam Greenlight with the first video trailer. If you like my game, please vote for it here: Ostriv - Steam Greenlight Page

Greenlight Trailer

I know the video could be much better, but I had to hurry before Greenlight doors will close forever :)

This was my first experience in several fields. I made my first orchestral music track, I had my first experience editing the video, and of course posted my first (and obviously the last:D) item on Steam Greenlight.

I also made some updates to the website including the most recent screenshots and improved description.

Ostriv

Now I can finally get back to intense game development!

It looks cool, looking forward to play it! It would be cool if you could manage some defense force in your city, like a local police, or a militia, and defend the streets from crime or revolutions in case that your citizens are unhappy for example. Just ideas, but keep working on it because it looks awesome so far!

Hey, if you need any help with an extra programmer, I could help you if you want, this seems very interesting. I'm currently working on my own game "Cubings" but I'd like to help someone else too in my free time. Anyways, keep it up! I'm sure this will do a good hit in IndieDB.
