Independent games development studio 3DIVISION will release Workers & Resources: Soviet Republic on Friday March 15 on Steam.
Workers & Resources: Soviet Republic is a real-time soviet-themed city builder tycoon set in an imaginary communist country in Eastern Europe. Your objective in the game is to construct your own republic and transform a poor country into a rich industrial super-power.
“Workers & Resources: Soviet Republic includes features such as building railways, conveyors, and pipelines”, claims Peter Adamcik, CEO and Programmer at 3DIVISION. “You will also have to manage power and construct the infrastructure using your own means”.
Workers & Resources: Soviet Republic will be launched in Early Access and it will remain like that for 12-24 months. In this period of time the game will eventually integrate new types of transportation (ships, aircraft and other), and it will implement new vehicles, new buildings and new gameplay mechanics.
- Manage all aspects of your own republic with planned economy, including mining resources, manufacturing goods, construction, investments, and citizens too.
- Create your own industrial complexes with loading and unloading stations, storage, warehouses, and factories.
- Build the infrastructure and manage its traffic, including roads, railways, sidewalks, conveyors, wiring, and pipelines. Wisely place and connect factories, houses and warehouses, and make the most efficient connections.
- Plan and build the living areas with everything your citizens may need to live their happy life, such as playgrounds, cinema s, taverns, and shops.
- Send your citizens to the mine to get coal, iron and other natural resources; or send them to the fields to pick up the crops; or take them to factories to produce manufactured goods.
- Sell and purchase resources and goods from western countries or other soviet countries to get dollars or rubles and buy the products or resources you need… or invest in new infrastructure or buildings.
- Enjoy authentic soviet buildings and vehicles, as well as realistic landscapes of the 60’s to the 90’s.
- Play the way you want! You can focus on getting natural resources or products and trade them for money; or you can build a self-sufficient republic; or you can just use the easy sandbox mode with unlimited money/resources and just enjoy building something live.
- Prices of resources on the global market are changing over time as you play –one day you can sell or purchase steel for a $100 per ton, but in a few months the cost can rise to $200 or decrease to $50. The price of everything is connected to the cost of work and resources.
