The Best City Building Games in 2017

City-building games are becoming more and more popular for PC. The idea of sitting down and building my own virtual city brings me joy, and it’s fantastic to know how varied every city-building game out there is. There are so many that it can be hard to decide which game is a good one to try. To make things easier, here is a list of the 30 best city-building games for PC. Get ready to build!

30. Atomic Society

Atomic Society: Post-Apocalyptic City Builder With Moral Choices

So far, players have been able to play Atomic Society only in its pre-alpha phase. It is expected the full release of the game will be sometime this year. Your aim in Atomic Society is to build and manage a city in post-apocalyptic times.

What’s interesting about Atomic Society is that you have a Moral Choice System. That is, you can make laws as you see fit for your city. You can decide whether to be kind of cruel to your inhabitants. For example, you can choose whether to have the death sentence, prison, or even encourage illegal activities. You are faced with a variety of problems and challenges whilst building and managing your city, from starvation and thirst, to plagues and new immigrants.

The Early Access version of the game is proving a lot of fun, and I can’t wait for the full game to be released. I definitely recommend you check it out when it does arrive, or even check out the Early Access version of the game if you can’t wait to have a go!

Will you help the citizens?

Expand your city far and wide!
