Simulation is my favourite genre. If you’re not careful, these games will cause time to vanish from the universe. There are a number of great games on this list, including Cities Skylines, which is one of my all-time favourites. Golftopia, which came out this year, is one of the best simulation indie games I’ve ever played.
I’d also like to recommend Townscaper, a small game that is essentially a click-to-build game, but once you get started, it becomes extremely addictive.
Skylines of Cities
Cities: Skylines is a fresh take on the classic city-building game. Although improving on some well-established tropes of the city-building experience, the game incorporates new game play elements to realise the excitement and hardships of constructing and sustaining a real city. The game features a fully realised transportation system from the creators of the Cities in Motion franchise. As a fine counterbalance to the layered and demanding simulation, it also provides the ability to modify the game to fit your play style. Just your imagination limits you, so take command and aim for the stars!
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is the sequel to Euro Truck Simulator.
SCS Software’s Euro Truck Simulator 2 is a vehicle simulation game for Microsoft Windows and Linux that was first released as open development on October 19, 2012. It is the second video game in the Euro Truck Simulator series and is a direct sequel to the 2008 game Euro Truck Simulator. Set in Europe, the player can drive one of many articulated trucks across the continent, picking up and transporting cargo from various locations. As the game progresses, the player will be able to purchase additional cars, depots, and recruit drivers to work for them. Despite the term, players have the option of delivering cargo in the United States.
Factorio is an Italian word for “factory.”
Resources will be mined, technology will be researched, infrastructure will be built, production will be automated, and enemies will be fought. Plan your factory with your imagination, combining basic elements to create ingenious structures, managing it to keep it running, and eventually protecting it from creatures that don’t like you.
This season, put your ideas to good use and run your club your way. With new features and polished game mechanics, FM20 adds fresh and authentic dimensions, inspiring managers to take greater responsibility for both their own and their team’s fate.
Golftopia is a place where you can play golf.
GolfTopia aims to combine a wacky physics-based golf mechanics with a humorous management tycoon experience. Visiting golfers are a picky crowd, with over 100 grievances, suggestions, and compliments about all they see. Every tree, every blade of rough, every bump, and roll of the terrain changes how golf is played, because beauty is just skin deep. It would be difficult to run a GolfTopia.
Place every tee, hole, and devious sand trap on the course. Attract tourists while feeding, hydrating, and calming them. If you make them happy long enough, they’ll become prestigious members, or you can drive them insane in a fiendish golf gauntlet! Picky golfers, however, will not be your only problem. With robotic workers and defensive turrets, defend your development from a rising infestation of ill-tempered vegetation. Fans, bumpers, launchers, and teleporters can be added to your course to turn it into a well-oiled money-making machine. With hotels, putting greens, a driving range, bars, restaurants, and more, you can turn your course into a world-class attraction. Make sure your golfers have everything they need so they never have to go anywhere!
