What was the Settlement Survival developers’ inspiration?
- We came out with some ideas after reading the book Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed by Jared Diamond. Referring to Easter Island, Vikings on Greenland, and the Black Plague, we try to tell some stories about how human civilizations collapse in extreme environments and how people survive. The players can explore many avenues to keep the residents alive.
Obviously, we were inspired for the game mechanics by classics like Banished.
