Far from a simple building site simulation, this City Builder will allow users to familiarize themselves with the building industry and help them learn about the issues linked with a real building site; from drawing plans to managing workers, choosing building materials and respecting the environment.
The user will be given a budget, a deadline, a building site and some specifications: number of floors, minimum size of the rooms, accessibility requirements, etc. Playing as the architect that manages these sites, the user will have to collaborate with advisers such as the staff adviser, the architecture adviser, the building site adviser, the project adviser, and the logistics adviser. He will discover the different work ethics required for the construction of specific buildings such as hospitals, residential buildings, and even entire shopping centres! All have distinct requirements but will still allow the user's imagination to run wild through the creation of their plans and the building materials that they will choose to use.
Entertaining and instructive, simple and addictive, Building & Co: You are the architect! is the first management game to put you in control of a building site and offers a fun, technical approach that will please all fans of the genre.
