Developer Lion Shield is made up of Pete Angstadt and Michael Peddicord, who have worked on games like Abzu, Journey, and Spore. The two have banded together to create Kingdoms and Castles, a game that borrows heavily from the Maxis school of city-builder games.

Although the game focuses on having you build up your town house by house, several elements can get in your way. Weather changes with the seasons (Winter can be a rough season), vikings and dragons can attack, and your population can starve. You can watch a trailer for the game showing Pre-Alpha footage below.

The game is being crowd-funded on Fig, with a funding deadline of January 5, 2017.
