Dark fantasy strategy game Gord looks like a Diablo town manager

Remember the crappy little starting town in Diablo 2? It’s an encampment (opens in new tab), technically: A few tents and wagons with a wall to keep out skeletons. Now imagine that instead of a hero passing through on their way to fight the devil, you’re the mayor of that awful place. That’s the scenario in upcoming strategy game Gord (opens in new tab), more or less.

Managing a Slavic folklore-inspired dark fantasy town doesn’t look simple or easy, mind you. From the look of the new Gord gameplay video embedded above, it’s as thankless a job as running an ice age city in Frostpunk, and there’s a lot to it: resource gathering, urban design, citizen management, and on top of all that, a bit of RPG adventuring and combat.
