Block’hood brings calm thoughtfulness to building sims

If architecture is wrong I don’t want to be Frank Lloyd Wright

It’s always refreshing to see a video game take on important human issues that aren’t just love or war. Most city-building simulators require careful planning, balancing different zones for maximum happiness under a budget. Block’hood looks at it from a different angle, incorporating aesthetics, ecology, and sustainability into consideration when developing a modern neighborhood.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Block’hood is designed by an architect. The building designs shown all have a sharp geometric look that is just irregular enough to be eye-catching.

Block’hood is being published by Devolver Digital and just released today on Steam Early Access.
