  • Patron



Patron builds upon the foundations laid out by the staples of the survival city builder genre and enhances the experience with a large research tree and by introducing intricate social dynamics into the game and the genre in general. Happiness, the standard simple feature of all such games, in the case of Patron is a complete gameplay system in its own right.

Patron starts off similarly to other games in the genre, but then veers off exploring social intricacies and what it means to truly run a society and not just a city filled with automatons.

Each individual citizen in the town has his needs, desires and issues troubling him or making him happy. Some citizens are more concerned with immigration, while others are more aggravated by tax-related issues. If the citizen’s view on the subject is in line with what the town government (YOU, the player) is doing, he’ll be happy. Works the other way around as well.

CONSTRUCT AND UPGRADE

To make the best of the opportunities in this new land, you will need to construct residential houses, farms, production plants, manufacturing buildings and dozens of other buildings needed to harvest the riches of the land.

BALANCE SENSITIVE SOCIAL ISSUES

Every decision you make as Patron will be met with different reactions from different social groups. You'll need real political talent to balance sensitive matters as religion, immigration, loyalty, poverty... Whatever you choose to do can lead to unforeseen consequences years later.

ADAPT TO WEATHER AND SEASONS

Managing your tasks and citizens in a timely and efficient manner allows you to prepare and adapt to external variables like harsh weather or different seasons.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOP FOR THE FUTURE

The world is changing and you must make sure you're advancing at the proper pace. Only by constant advancing and research will your society be able to stand the test of time.

TRAGEDY ALWAYS LURKS

No matter what you do, unexpected tragedies can always strike your people. They will look to you for protection and help.

ENJOY THE GOOD SIDE OF LIFE

People also need external signs of their success. Build and arrange numerous beautification elements of your city, and make sure everyone is rewarded for their hard work.

Well, less a fix, more an improvement. The performance boost coming with this update will be most visible on larger cities (1000+ citizens). Our tests show in some cases up to 35% better performance. That's about it. We'll have a "proper" update next week, but we didn't want you to wait for this optimization longer than necessary. Keep calm and govern on! Overseer Games

Hi everyone, Just a snap quick fix Fixed a problem with luxuries where in some cases having even more than enough and a good diversity didn't mean your citizens were happy. Fixed a potential crash-to-desktop when having a bunch of citizens. (multi-threading issue) Fixed a problem that manifested as a single house sucking in a whole lotta stuff for no apparent reason We hope this will make playing Patron more enjoyable! Until next time!

Nothing special going on here. The intent is to make everything perfectly clear. Today's highlights include the frequently requested camera tilt, a solution for the problematically missing ranch animal switch and improvements in the creation of new maps workflow. The latter is further explained in a wiki article CHANGES Til...
