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 Gord, 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 some RPG adventuring and combat.
