Here’s a quick look at the brand new early access game – Thea: The Awakening. Just got a copy for testing and it’s a really nice game with elements of Civilization series and more. Check it out!
The game is pretty simple. You have to take care of your mortal villagers and help them survive in the dangerous world of Thea. The whole story is set in a Slavic mythology and to me names like Baba Yaga or Striga make sense and sound familiar. You have only a few hopeless and starving survivors who are desperately trying to stay alive in the world destroyed by The Darkness.
You can choose to stay in your village and build up defenses or you can go out and explore. Conflicts can be resolved through diplomacy, hunting, and various other ways depending on the skills.
Each playthrough is a new random map so it’s always different and isn’t that repetitive.

The game is turn-based, that’s why it reminds me of Civilization but it is kind of different. Here is a quick gameplay video of like half an hour of me trying to figure out what the hell is going on :D
I’m really bad at this but I really liked the part where you had to pick cards during fight with random bots on the map, again I had no clue what I was doing (just like that card game in The Witcher 3 :D) but it was fun. If you are looking for a nice fantasy-themed strategy you should give this game a try.
Thanks to Games Rocket for providing me with a copy of the game for testing!
