The Immortal Mayor: Game combines city builder and Taoism

Who I am
Carlos Laforet Coll

Chinese indie studio Star Chess is working on a city builder with a particularly Chinese flair, taking the land god of Taoism to the video game's logical conclusion. In The Immortal Mayor you are the local land deity, and with more worshipers comes more prestige, so it's up to you to ensure the prosperity of the locals. To do this, you direct the expansion of your city, including building protection against attacks from wild monsters, and use your divine powers and divine inspiration to drive the city around.

It's a game you've been available for testing during Steam Next Fest, and a gem buried in the raw. The release is scheduled for early access in July 2021.

It's a cool idea, as your town gains more believers. Not everyone will adore you at first, you gain divine power faster and as your city grows your importance increases in the hierarchy of the gods. Befriending other gods by building temples for them in your city, appointing priests, and providing them with rare incense allows you to use their powers to benefit your village as well.

It's a nice twist on the usual survival city builder concept of having you work as a sort of omniscient "mayor" rather than making you a specific character with specific goals and a very precise relationship to the people you supervise. You want to build education, because then your priests will be wiser. You want to bestow divine decorations not just because they make people's homes more beautiful, but because they are a direct example of your benevolence.

The game had its demo available during Steam Next Fest, a major event that celebrated upcoming Steam releases with game demos. If you're interested in the game, don't worry, early access to the game will be available in July.

Below you can check out the official trailer for the game.
