Clanfolk is a colony simulator featuring some unique and challenging mechanics set to make it stand out from the competition. Players will need to take over the management of a medieval settlement, by stocking up on provisions in the Summer and surviving the Winter.

Players will need to take into account the needs and requirements of each member of their clan, with each one having unique behaviors. There will also be a heavy focus on the family aspect of clan folk as each member of your family and the other denizens of your clan hunt, fish, create relationships, have children and eventually die, passing on their legacy.

This is where the features of Clanfolk make the game so unique, as there are procedurally generated maps and events, such as the winter snows and summer fires. All of these affect your clan, and due to their dynamic behavior, means you will need to pay attention to what your clan is doing and how relationships and roles are progressing.

Another great feature that Clanfolk employs is a neighboring clan system with other clans built up around yours, and members from that clan can interact with your clan folk for better or worse. This, once again coupled with the dynamic elements of each of your clan members, gives the game a natural realism as people can be suspicious of one another, or form lasting relationships depending on their personality.

And finally, on top of all of this, there is the aspect of having to deal with mother nature, and the weather affects your crops and livestock, making every day vital to your survival and planning ahead is a necessity. This means fires or icy winters can not only hurt or kill your denizens but also destroy your resources and make things extremely difficult to manage.

So all in all, your role in the game is to balance and watch over everything that revolves around the flourishing of your clan folk and their future survival. From making sure they have food to eat and a roof over their heads, to ensuring they're happy and can safely have families of their own to keep your clan strong and prosperous.

If you haven't checked out the trailer for Clanfolk, please consider giving it a watch above. And we hope you all give the game a chance once it drops on 14th July 2022.
