Modlands is an awesome little SimCity-like game where you build up a city with a twist.
For starters, it has Twitch support which means your viewers can play with you cooperatively and live in your city as colonists! If you’re a Twitch streamer, this is an awesome way to get your viewers involved. You can even play competitively against them via Twitch chat!
It features both single-player offline modes and also online with Twitch players. You can have your audience members create their own characters and partake their own role in your city! Whether this is co-op survival that pits the streamer and viewers together against monsters or a competitive mode where the streamer and viewers duke it out like a split faction, it promises a ton of fun.

For non-streamers, Modlands is a city builder which has you in control over a tiny colony in a rural area. You’re in charge of expanding a small tribe of voxel-based characters and you need to aid them in building up their town. The game has tons of resource management so you’ll be exploring new lands, crafting items, building new structures, and even defending your colony from attacking foreign enemies!
If you’ve played games like SimCity, you’ll get it right away. it’s the same thing but with a lot more control. The graphics are also voxel-based so you get blocky gameplay like Minecraft.
You can tell your colonists do anything. Harvest resources, gather wood, explore lands, and even craft items. You can even chain structures together to build giant factories to create items for you.
You’ll also have to build structures and defend your people from baddies! They come out at night and you’ll have to gather them all into houses you built to keep them same.
Modlands combines Minecraft, SimCity, and Starcraft all into one awesome strategic city builder. The game can easily hit it big time if more streamers adapt to playing this game, but it’s already extremely addicting with just one player offline using AI. If you like strategic games, you need to try out Modlands. It’s a very fun game that’ll have you glued to your screen for days.
