You may have forgotten that Buildings Have Feelings Too!, given that we’ve heard very little about it since it was announced for Xbox One in 2018. Those poor buildings can breathe a collective sigh of relief now though, because things are moving in the right direction as this alternative take on city management looks to be preparing for a launch very soon.
Merge Games have unveiled plans to release Buildings Have Feelings Too! digitally in March, with retail offerings coming in May.
Just imagine a city where buildings can walk and talk to one another, with each one possessing its own hopes, dreams and even fears. Most of the time they are just trying to get along with each other and make it through the day – like the rest of us. That’s the focus of Buildings Have Feelings Too!, which manifests itself as a city management game with a shed load of character. As a result, you’ll need to help grow the city as a whole whilst also making sure the individual buildings thrive; otherwise there’s a risk that they would be demolished forever too.
As time progresses, new industries can be researched and new architectural marvels built to ensure your city gets bigger and better. On the flipside however, world events may cause buildings to fail and businesses to go bankrupt. You’ll consistently be required to discover fresh ways to fulfil the needs of the city, which could involve refurbishing a building or simply grabbing it by the hand and moving it over to a much nicer part of the neighbourhood. To make things additionally tricky, other factors will come into play such as electricity supply, noise pollution and transport issues.
Buildings Have Feelings Too! will be landing on all digital stores (Xbox Store, PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop, and Steam) in March, which is when Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One gamers can delve in. Not only will the game be getting released digitally, but you will also be able to pick up a physical version on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in May, including a Signature Edition from the aptly named Signature Edition website.
