El Dorado: The Golden City Builder may not have an official launch date yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a taste of what’s to come from the strategy title, as a free prologue demo has been released to Steam for those interested in diving into the strategy game to develop settlements, appease the Gods, and conquering the city of Yucatan, all without having to spend a cent of real money.

Strategy games have seen a huge renaissance over the last few years, and following in that tradition comes El Dorado: The Golden City Builder. From developers Gameparic, El Dorado is a strategy city-building game where players look to expand their empire via peaceful negotiation, or all-out war.

El Dorado features core gameplay mechanics found in other citybuilders like resource management, tactful city planning, and keeping the population happy and well-fed. However, there is one specific gameplay mechanic unique to this game that makes it stand out from its competitors which is appeasing the Gods.

Players can sacrifice their citizens to the Gods to keep them at bay and not strike down on their civilization. If you choose to not sacrifice to the Gods, the Deities will send cataclysmic events to your city in the form of vicious thunderstrikes.El Dorado The Golden City Builder
