Indie developer SomaSim
has announced that 1849
a city management game for PCs, Macs, iPads, and Android tablets, will arrive on May 8th. 1849 challenges players to build a thriving mining empire in 19th century California. The game is set within 20 real Gold Rush-era cities, each with unique topography and natural resources that influence how they grow. You can transform Northern California from a rugged backwater into an economic powerhouse: build mines, establish farms, attract workers and keep up with their ever-increasing needs, set up trade networks from the High Sierras to San Francisco and beyond.
