These Doomed Isles Survival City-Builder Enters Early Access

Publisher Fireshine Games and developer Triplevision Games have released on Steam Early Access, These Doomed Isles, their survival city-builder with roguelike deckbuilding mechanics.

Become a god and create a new world. Forge the land, build settlements, and lead a civilization. Defend the new civilization from raiders, natural disasters, and mythical monstrosities in strategic run-based gameplay.

Play as one of three powerful gods. Each have their own playstyle, abilities, cards, aesthetics, and enemies. Current gods include: Cernunnos, the Celtic god of nature; Plutus, the Greek god of wealth; and Acan, the Mayan god of wine. Additional playable gods are planned throughout Early Access and before the game’s 1.0 launch.

I’m a huge fan of classic god games, so my goal for These Doomed Isles was to build a compelling strategy game that combines run-based, roguelike gameplay with city-building. We’ve received amazing feedback from the game’s prologue and playtests, so I’m really excited to let players jump into the Early Access version today. We’ll be listening closely to player feedback throughout Early Access, and have big plans to add new content and additional playable gods.
