Islanders is a deceptively simple puzzle game where you build little cities to score points. More importantly, it's the absolutely perfect game for making beautiful picturesque villages you can fall asleep and dream about.

Islanders is simple and straight-forward but still manages to make each of its city-building runs engrossing with a high-score to chase and procedurally-generated spaces to explore. It's the charming visuals and meditative soundtrack that make your brief stays worth it, enrapturing you in a relaxing aesthetic as you try to survive as long as you can.

Islanders is a relaxing little builder more concerned with letting you get right to making the town than bogging you down with the details. There’s a learning curve, of course, but it’s a gentle one that lets you pick up the details at your own speed without feeling like it’s a failure when you can no longer advance. The next island is a chance for a new mini-civilization and the chance to build a little bigger than the previous attempt.

Il bello della scena indie su PC sta proprio in prodotti che non seguono la via maestra del genere d’appartenenza, ma solcano i vicoli meno battuti e tortuosi fino a spianare una nuova strada che altri possono approcciare fino a scoprire nuovi orizzonti. GrizzlyGames si propone l’obiettivo di farci rilassare anche se abbiamo pochi minuti a disposizione, con un opera che parte da una destrutturazione totale del genere per ricomporne solo gli elementi strettamente necessari al proprio scopo. Il margine per alcuni miglioramenti c’è, ma quanto viene offerto (a bassissimo costo) ottiene i risultati cercati generando anche innovazione. Mission accomplished.
