I’ve been playing Impressions Games’ 1998 classic Caesar III this week. While I love it for a lot of reasons (some of which are nostalgia related), what has really got me excited is how much you can piss off your boss.

If you had told me months ago that a city builder about the remnants of 19th century England trying to survive the next ice age would sell hundreds of thousands of copies in its first week on Steam, I'd have guessed you were hallucinating from hypothermia. But that's exactly what Frostpunk did, and after spending all weekend with the game I'm not surprised.
For me, the most important part of city-builders is the plop. Plop is that feeling when a prefabricated building hits the ground, and it takes a great animation design to really sell the feeling of a godlike hand descending to drop a building onto the ground. Kingdoms and Castles really sells that plop.
