Foundation is a grid-less, laidback medieval city-building game with a focus on organic development, monument construction and resource management.

As the newly appointed lord or lady of a land still untouched and full of potential, you are given the opportunity to create a prosperous medieval settlement as you envision it, managing your resources and growing population, whilst being challenged by narrative events, quests and missions, from across the kingdom.

From very modest beginnings, build rudimentary workplaces, extract and store resources, establish trade routes, erect majestic monuments and before long... a bustling city will emerge in your new found lands!


Organic urbanism
Create gridless and organically sprawling cities that grow like medieval cities of the period. Plan the construction of various workplaces and watch as the villagers create natural paths and build their own houses. Intuitively paint zones to define areas like housing, farming, gathering and more.

Thrive and prosper
Weave a complex web of interactions between inhabitants’ needs and skills, resource availability, extraction, and goods production.

Flexible building creation
Craft and design unique free-form buildings such as Taverns, Keeps, Churches and more, using a system of interlocking building parts. Get even more creative by toggling off the snap function for a fully customizable creation.

Interact with the Estates of the Realm
Develop the splendor of your village and raise your reputation among the different Estates of the Realm to gain access to exclusive buildings and perks.

Modding community and support
Create and share your own characters, buildings, quests, terrains and even visual and gameplay tweaks with Lua and mod.io and be part of the creative Foundation community.

Original soundtrack
Immerse yourself in our blissful soundtrack by Audinity, talented composers who worked on Paradox titles such as Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV!

We’re proud to announce that mod.io, the modding API which allows developers to easily add comprehensive mod support to their games, has now been integrated into the upcoming medieval city-building simulator, Foundation!

Polymorph Games, the team behind Foundation, has already created a sample mod which is available for modders to download in order to get a sense of how mod.io allows mods to integrate into the city-builder.

Foundation is built using Polymorph Games’ proprietary game engine, Hurricane – an engine that itself is open to extensive modding capabilities, making it a perfect choice for use with the mod.io modding API. As such, players who are interested in getting started learning to mod the game will find extensive support available.

The best place to start is with the official Foundation Modding Documentation, which will cover how to enable and disable mods, basic LUA scripting, and important directories. If you require additional support, the Foundation Discord server is the next best place to go. Once you’re ready, you can also visit the Foundation page on mod.io to see available mods, and submit your own.

Polymorph games is celebrating the launch of its mod.io support by offering 25% off the game’s alpha purchase, which is available from the official homepage. The deal is running from now until November 28, and will get you immediate access to the alpha, the digital soundtrack, and a pre-order Steam key for when the game eventually goes live.

For more information about foundation, check out Polymorph Games’ latest developer update. And, if you’re a developer yourself and are interested in how mod.io could help integrate modding support for your own game, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

I love the unintentional flexing on Anno/Dawn of discovery games with the grid-less building mechanics. It's about time we say goodbye for 90° angled hellscape, and do something fresh instead.
