One of the best city builders around is getting a hefty update

I recently took a look at the exciting future promised by the next wave of city buildersbut I’ve also been spending time with current city building games like Farthest Frontier and Cities: Skylines. And I just found the perfect excuse to go back to another of the best city builders out there, Foundation, which has been in early access on Steam since 2019. Foundation is preparing for a big update, version 1.9, and I got the chance to try it out before it arrives.

If you’ve never played Foundation, one of the most appealing things about it is that it’s a completely gridless city builder. Typically, I’m all about grids: there’s something immensely satisfying about laying out roads precisely and carefully snapping buildings into place and winding up with an orderly, well-optimized town.
