Please post some comfy strategy games.
The Indolent Evil obliges.
>>1059855I won't, but I will look at the ones you post
>>1059857>Scrooge McDuck became an evil overlord
>>1059855SimCity 4RollerCoaster Tycoon/ORCTSporeFreecivFreecol
>>1059855>>1059870>>1059890I remember playing shareware/demo versions of these as a kid and not knowing what the fuck I was doing because I didn't knew english. Good times. I should get these on gog one day.
>>1059886this, and C2
>>1059855Wish there were more comfy 3d strategy games.
>>1060326It's pretty wild that this game came out just two years before Sierra's Zeus.
>6 hours for a match>enemy just stand around building troops and sending a few waves if disturbedEpic campaign.
>>1059855Based comfy thread.>Evil Genius
>>1059890>that next-level tier your kingdom can achieve by carefully managing crops instead of dairy
>>1059855WoahThat was the first strategy that I've played, although just a demoI was 4yo and liked building wineyards because they looked pretty
>>1059862https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uHr-1xmk-VwYou know, for a game with such a simple premise, it was bucketloads of fun.
Banished. In depth city medieval city builder. Possibly my favorite game of all time. Play it to death, then download all of the mods and repeat.
>>1061153Is it better than Stronghold?
>>1061439they are extremely different games
>>1061153>the modsMod nigger. Also, vanilla banished is very plain and rather than a citybuilder, it's more of a population control simulator, where you balance between growing too slow or too fast to avoid hitting the deathspiral of decline.
>>1061570>growing too slow or growing too fastI use the real time aging mod so people age normally instead of the accelerated rate in vanilla. Makes for a much more relaxed and realistic game but it can be a bit slow until you get that first batch of nomads.
>>1061439Yes. There's no battles or military units but the economy is much more complex than Stronghold.
>>1061439Not remotely, it's a bare-bones "game" with a few shitty mods to it. It isn't anywhere on Stronghold's level.
>>1059855>gives you carpel tunnel
>>1061570>being against modsseriously?
Disciples 2 is max comfyIncredible ambient music and overall aesthetics, and the gameplay is pretty decent too
>>1059857Why do none of these soulless DK ripoffs manage to be even half as good as DK?
>>1065629>>1065632I don't even like the Disciples games, but I can't deny that they have an amazing aesthetic quality.
>>1065657Why do you dislike them?
>>1065745Just the central gameplay loop I guess. The combat is okay even if it's a bit simple, but I found the strategic aspects tedious compared to similar games like HoMM.
>>1059862there's just someting about the game taking place in a perpetual morning with the bird singing that tickles my comfy bone
>>1060335where can I pirate that game?
>>1066522can't find it, all I found is a dead russian torrent. Do you have a working link or can you upload your file?
>>1059855>whole city decides to have dinner at the same timeIt's pretty stressful
>>1059855>>1059862>>1059886All the entrances facing the same direction triggers the fuck out of me with how roads need to bend all around very southerly buildings to connect them
>>1059855It was comfy for the first half of the game where you have plenty of time to set up and only rely on renewable resources like wood or leather. Second half of the game where you have to race against the clock to build an army before the enemy attacks while also conserving limited resources like coal and iron is not really comfy at all.
>>1070023Also it kinda gimps the southern players if the map doesn't loop - same deal with Total Annihillation
>>1065893what strategic aspects does Disciples 2 lack/could be improved upon in your opinion?>t. someone who's slowly making a D2 ripoff in his spare time>>1069309AoW1 and 2 is peak comfy
never could figure out Nobunaga's Ambition enough to make it far since I was just a kid, but it was fun just the same.
>>1060341I remember playing the deluxe version of Empire and giving myself and the AI a shitload of production bonuses when starting a scenario because producing units took fucking forever otherwise.
comfy cyberpunk tbs with hotseat. yeah thats comfyChaos Overlords.
>>1072737KOEI art style is the definition of comfy strategy.
>>1070617I never felt like it was hard to beat the clock in those missions. The ones where you only have an army are not comfy though.
>>1061153I like building a central town and surrounding it with forest, hunt and gatherer nodes. Put the farms off to one side. Then it's just done. Nothing more to do. Had a fun game where I built that big community house and everyone lived in the same building once.
>>1072787Have you tried the Enhanced Edition?
>>1073283No. What's different about it?
Kingdoms and Castles recently got a major update that added AI players and more stuff.Stated a new game yesterday for the first time since 2019, comfy factor still holds up.
>>1073766That game looks supremely comfy but I never picked it up because it also looked like one of those games that practically plays itself.
recommendations for builders with combat?
>>1073768Not really, it's a fairly basic game but there's a bunch of small mechanics, like planning for floods or providing masons to fix aging buildings.Raider/dragon attacks also require you to build defenses and coordinate your troops.
>>1073791Stronghold for laidback castle-sim, Stronghold Crusader if you want more high-octane experience.
>>1073742Adds new units and abilities for if the base game ever felt too bare bones
>>1072789*SNAP*Yep that's going in my burgerpunk folder.
>>1072789>Ireland in 1830
>>1073768It's pretty complex, don't let the looks fool you. It is very easy to lose on the higher difficulties if you aren't careful. They just added AI players and diplomacy in the latest update too.Probably one of the best city builders for it's price.
>>1072792good game, pity GOG fucked up the rerelease
>>1072792what is this?
>>1059855>>1059862>>1059886What can you say about 3D Settlers, like anniversery and Vikings
Aesthetics is nice, not sure about the gameplay, played a little bit
>>1061153Someone put the game files on the school computers in high school and I played the hell out of it. Good times, it's got issues, and it doesn't have a ton of content, but every once in a while its fun to boot it up run a town for a few years.
>>1059855Comfy game I bought with spare money off a steam gift card one christmas.
>>1077557Peak comfy, when you're not getting swarmed by minotaurs
I really need to play this one more.
>>1059870My man this game is fucking stressful on higher difficulties.
>>1060750>>1065584>>1065629>>1069309>>1081640seconding these, as well as Rise of Nations/Legends and King's Bounty the Legend>>1077557Majesty is very comfy but I could never get into the gameplay, very irritating.
>>1081667Oh shit I just remembered Theme Hospital, Populous the Beginning and Dungeon Keeper tooBasically most bullfrog games fit the bill
>>1081654If you spam spies at the start of the game it makes it more manageable. There were a few times I stole a temple from someone just as they were about to summon a god.
>>1065629>>1065632I like how this looksI share some Conquest of the New World
>>1081671https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs02P3Rhd0UPosting the soundtrack, the new age tribal music is perfect to send you back in time as you lead armies of cavemen and use tribal magic on enemy tribes
>>1076979Tell me about this game. I remember playing it on a demo disc as a wee lad, but apart from the name and some of the graphics I can't remember anything.
>>1081693Populous the beginning is wonderful. I still remember the conversions I had as a kid with my friends:>Hey anon, I can get you a copy of it, I just need to ask my dad to copy the disk!>Really?, that's awesome>Hey, have you heard about these disks that you can re-write stiff on? you can use them more than once!>How many times? as many as you want?>I don't know... hey... I wonder what happens if you copy a game over an old one but it doesn't work properly...>Haha... imagine if you had a populous shaman walking around in starcraft because the copy went wrong>You think that could really happen?>I dunno.... it *seems* like it could...That and one of my friends claimed to have beaten level 15(?) where you shaman starts in a cage without cheats. But he couldn't describe the colour of the ground on the last level... VERY suspicious!Ahh, those were good times. We will never get them back.
>>1081722Zoomers will never meet the fat kid whose father or uncle works at nintendo.
>>1072803Music is pretty nice to https://youtu.be/Vd5YJb6S1H0https://youtu.be/tRAdkj7kcvA
Combined with the music, this is an over 9000-megaton comfy bomb.
>>1059855Never played OP's game but it reminds me of the Settlers games.
>>1081708Not him, but it's a civlike with a very "windows" interface. The premise was " hey, a habitable planet, let's all send a team of settlers with low tech instead of starting an all out war and wrecking the place, deal?" I also remember a goofy song on the CD telling about the races, found it! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=j19mg4ci69A
>>1083016>can't read screenshotIt was made by former Settler's devs
>>1077557as much as i love majesty i'm not sure i'd call it comfy, beginner missions yes. but on the higher levels you really need to have a strategy coming into it to survive let alone win.
>>1083210So basically Sid Meiers Colonization in space?Hot damn I've been wanting something like that for years.>Also Windows GUI vidya are peak soul
>>1082252Unless you pick Chaos and haven't installed the hotfix.
>>1082252what is the game? I tried googling the filename but only got some christianity websites
>>1084147Lords of Magic.
>>1081640Actually the demo of the remastered version is available on steam
>>1084222and it's complete pile of garbage visually
>>1081671>bullfrogPick one, any one, you'll never go wrong.
>>1084688just like the og
>>1085533nah, you are full of shit.OG had prerendered 3D sprites, with actual effort put in, new one has redrawn in a few hours sprites + ugly bobble heads citizensyou even get less if visual look cause they only redraw sprites from one perspective, so turning camera you'll get same sprites
>>1059855on my first play thru now. fun, but kinda hard.on sale with the expansion for 1.50 on GOG
>>1085535not that anon, bu this is even more cancer than I tought. Fucking french fags I swear
>>1085624yea, the saddest part is probably that they put out their "devlogs" about how much it's all about "their artistic vision", when in reality is just they are just not committed resources wise and don't have 3d pipeline for this.Honestly if they were at least frank like "look, we are on a budget, no one here can make full 3D models for 2d pre-rendered sprites nor we can hire them, so we will use our existing pipeline from Lethis Path of Progress for this game.", then I'd at least understood them and treated game for what it is.but nah, if they gonna hide behind "muh artistic vision", they can go fuck themselves, not to mention that they never even considering option of having old spritework, which is after CnC and D2 remasters is kinda dumb thing to do regardless of why.
>>1083358>Also Windows GUI vidya are peak soulthis desu
My childhood was stuck in the demo
>>1085779I first played Tzar in internet cafe as a kid.What an amazing game.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNyAfmtm9Wc
you guys forgot majesty.back then it was a great concept, you could only give rewards for killing enemies and the units would go themselves but you could not control them.
>>1085839>>1077557crap. but you forgot warlords battlecry
>>1085826When I was like 7-8 my dad brought a disk with a bunch of really good games on it, they were all in Russian and I have no idea where he got it. In Tzar I have every Russian word memorised and can instantly tell what resources are missing or what went wrong even though I don't speak the language lmao, still searching for the other games on that disk to this day.
>>1085950Railroad Tycoon 3That game has amazed economic model, way better than TTD/Transport Fever and others. Prices of goods are dynamic and you make money out of price differences between towns. Cargo also moves by other means (wagons, rivers, etc.) if trains aren't available
>>1085535game is so fucking ugly you prolly got eye cancer already
>>1065653'cause of your nostalgia glasses
>>1085629what a jaded boomer cunt you are. i'm gonna buy 10 copies and have tons of fun with this remastered shit. >ooga booga prerendered 3D sprites WAAAARARGhaha what a sad cunt
>>1073898>>1075091I took a stab at it. I played it on hard but not the impossible difficulty. The diplomacy is pretty easy usually the AI just comes over and cries on my shoulder then I get bonus favor with them. It feels like Stronghold just slightly more sandboxy.
when i was a kid i played the ever living shit out of the revival series on my nokia phoneit was comfy for me atleast
>>1088196on that note, im tech retarded so if anyone can tell me of a way to play revival 2 on my pc i'd be very happy, and googling just gets me irrelevant shit
>>1088206thank you anon, will look into it
>>1088196nice pixel art
>>1086387You really need to go back to /v/ your shit doesn't fly here. There's no reason to play this shitty hd version over the original patched with widescreen fix. If they are gonna butcher the art style in such a cheap way I'm not interested.
>>1085640Does this count?
>>1059855I've got 2 for you my friend :)A traditional RTShttps://pricklypeargames.itch.io/cold-itzlerand the sequel (A pikmin clone)https://pricklypeargames.itch.io/warmitzler
>>1060750railroad tycoon 3 was both kino and comfya rare combo
>>1060986Very nice choice
>>1081681This was my jam when I was a kid
>>1060750how does this compare to Sid Meier's Railroads!
>>1059855https://tza.red/Enjoy my friends
>>1093440You can always use gameranger too
>>1093440Do any latinofags know how to get to get your hands on the scenarios exclusively bundled with the spanish version of Tzar? They featured the Reconquista, King Arthur and Genghis Khan.
>>1059855>how to fail at isometric perspective: the game>>1059857sneedd
>>1093202look at this locomotive chart and this industry chart: >>1092432sid meier's railroads is an abortion
>>1093533I bought the game in cd version and it's written in the package it has this. It's the italian version thou, I don't know of it's compatible with the spaniard version. I never played the game I just bought it up on a nostalgic whim for FX releases.
>>1095639There's a gmod TTT map laid out almost exactly like this.
>>1059855Does anyone remember an rts where you play as these i think blue alien creatures? Bought it at some thrift store when i was younger lol
strategy is never comfy to mei have disease, i cheat to make the perfect city'/kingdom/empire/cultureit takes a long time especially if involving moddingi hate myself, i want to relax by playing but no game could do that
>>1095905>diseasewhat do you have
>>1095907i meant i am fuckedi am a failurei dont deserve to be human
>>1095905It's just not the genre for you. Play city builders instead. Or maybe TBS on lower difficulty settings where you can control everything without worrying about overlooking something.
>>10959271)i agree but i dunno what should i play2) what's a TBS?
>>1095963Turn-based strategy. You must have only started playing games very recently.
>>1095980i love/hate itbut sure is less stressful than RTSi dunno what to sayi want to play to relax and get comfy like i petting a cat that liked to be pet oni should get a cat instead of playing this
>>1095909You sound like a shining example of one
>>1093588That's not isometric, you clown.
>>1096263glad we agree
>>1059926I remember playing the demo version of the sequel and somehow managing to play as the golden monsters.
>>1059855Cometh is quite a notable one, one of the Web3 games with amazing gameplay.
>>1100829Web3 games seems to be trend in gamin sector just that a few are more focused on tokenomics rather than building quality games.
>>1100835That's something Web3 games has robbed us off, there are quite a number that are an exception though.
>>1100842Splinterland, Decentraland and Gala games seems to be quite different from others.
>>1100847Quite a list you have here i do think Cometh deserves to be on the list considering it's current battlemode boasts of amazing gameplay.
>>1100850The monthly mission is also a good reason to consider it.
>>1100829>>1100835>>1100842>>1100847>>1100850>>1100851This is a slow board, pajeet, you were supposed to post your promotional spam on /biz/.
>>1095639thought this game was memory holed for the longest time because literally no one ever mentioned it>still no good ski resort management sim better than this
>>1102722Not even Ski Park Manager?
>>1102737wtf why have i never heard of this
the comfiest game ever made
>>1102823That game is the opposite of comfy tho. Winter completely throws the pacing off, breaking greed portals makes greed stronger. Playing it by ear is a mistake, new players get wrecked and just having a miserable experience.
>>1102949challenging =/= not comfyget good fag
>>1061153yassss. 100%'d it twice
>>1107208>If the computer beats the player, the game shows them facing an animated firing squad.Pure kino.
I like the fact that everyone itt got out of their way to be original and not post the obvious most comfy game.
>>1061153I really like banished, it has a soul other games trying to do something similar dont.But it Totally could use an AI that builds a village somewhere and raids your shit occasionally, meaning you need to have the blacksmith make weapons and assign citizens to soldier. It’s missing a layer.Did they really intend the blacksmith to JUST make tools or maybe the devs wanted some kind of war system originally
>>1107972I wish they didn't change the orginal main menu background.
>>1103056actually it isjust because you played it endlessly and it seems easy doesnt make it comfy
Mashinky's peak comfy, but if you don't care about trains then you won't like it.>>1060333This game intrigues me, never heard of it. Shill me on it.
>>1101374Never tried it, but loved its sequel.
>>1060335I had only a problem with this game: it didn't let me have full control of my factions to the AI so that I could focus on a single faction paradox-style
>>1108071Yeah RoE was peak comfy menu. The complete edition menu is meh.
>>1085640I like the early 90s DOS/Win3.11 aesthetic
>>1111111HOLY SHITTHOSE DIGITS
>>1111111based and checked
>>1111111/vst/ history right here folks>>1000000
>>1111111Based septuplets of irrefutable truth.
>>1111111I don't respect your opinion, but I respect your roll. Godspeed motherfucker.
>>1111111Judging from *that* roll, apparently God/Demiurge/Kek/Dyḗus ph2tḗr/Tengri/Azathoth also likes this aesthetic.
Comfy thread. Picked several titles based on this thread's recommendations.
Socher Hayam, in which you're a merchant trading around the Levantine Sea
>>1111111Damn anon, you made fucking history holy hex
>200+ posts>no one mentions the obvioue comfy>THE comfiest of comfiesAnons, I...
>>1111111>the 1st serious get on this board and it's not cancermoottete approves
>>1085841fucking THANK YOU, I've looked for this one since I was 12This is gonna be a great weekend
>>1112115>>1085841nvm it's not it afterall, my game was necromancer themed and your pic looked a bit like what upgraded skeletons did
>>1111111>opinion is proven objectively correct by the roll
>>1111111Checked and based.
>>1112195no the other jew
I think all the Anno games are pretty comfy.
>>1112112i would mootette. i miss moot :'(
>>1111827Marryyoursister/10I don't think any total war game since allowed incest.Me and my friend would "co op" this game. Drawing maps using ea bags to paint them and crumple them up to look older, writing RP letters to each other. He was the king(campaign player), I was the general(battle player).We would sit there in class, planning our next session after school finished.We played as England and conquered essentially the entire map with just peasants and spearmen lmao.Good times being 11 and playing that, coming home with your friend and conquering Europe and the Middle East.
>>1111346>>1112902>1000000 stolen by /qa/ raiddecidedly unbased
