Any good ideas?


Factorio. Although its in Alpha, its extremely high quality, one of the best "Alpha" versions of a game I've ever played.

I can also concur with Valkyria Chronicles. Its got puzzle / tactics elements and RPG elements. Crazy anime-style plotline and a unique artstyle (including awful, awful ragdoll physics but at least they're funny)
First Strike +1/+1 and Indestructible.

I can second (or third) the talos principle. It really had a portal feel as it's a puzzle game with a story behind it. It's a different kind of story with a more philosophical flavor. I really enjoyed it.

I also enjoyed exploring abzu.

Regarding The Witness (haven't played the other ones), I will mention people feeling slightly noxious after playing it for very short periods of time is common. I experienced that too, as did my husband just from watching me play. I'm not sure what the deal is, but I ended up returning my game to the Steam store. The puzzles were good.

Oh, but the previous game by the same developer is fantastic (albeit short) - Braid.

Edit: Steam store, not Amazon store. Not sure where my head was. Irrelevant anyway.

Yeah, Braid is a pretty great puzzle-platformer - one of those games that if you haven't played, you should.

Take a look at quantum conundrum. Uses different dimensional shifting with different properties to solve puzzles.

So I find that I like Fallout 4, but want a game that focuses more on the city-building aspect. What post-apocalyptic city-builders are there?

Endciv has been abandoned
Atomic Society looks cool but not even in Alpha till next you

EDIT: Trying out Atomic Society, let me know if you know of others
