This is one of the best city-builders ever made.
Dawn of Discovery (known as Anno 1404 outside of America) is a complex city-building game with heavy economic simulation and RTS elements. The next game in the series is Anno 2070, and while it is an improvement in gameplay, Dawn of Discovery is still superior in terms of overall game experience.
You begin the game with only a small village, but you are able to expand the economy and create a thriving metropolis. As your cities develop and become more prosperous, you will notice significant changes in the looks, needs, and behavior of your populace. It is a constant challenge to maintain city growth while keeping your population satisfied. If you are unable to keep them content, they will ultimately revolt and attempt to burn the city to the ground. You will frequently compete for resources with one of the many NPCs. They all have unique personalities and backstories, and it is up to you to determine whether or not to ally with them or declare war.
The game offers single player scenarios and a campaign mode, but the continuous mode is where this game really shines. If you purchase the expansion pack (Dawn of Discovery: Venice), you will get additional scenarios, a multiplayer mode, new buildings, and access to espionage capabilities (it is worth the extra price).
The amount of attention to detail that the devs put into this game is what really makes it stand out. The low price makes this game perfect for anyone new to this series/genre and it is definitely one of the best deals on Steam.
