Oh, it’ll be a beaut as soon as it’s completed. On completion, Landlord’s Super guarantees a secular fantasy of building and socialising in your individual dismal slice of English decline – seasonal modifications, well being considerations, rental markets, union interferences and all. But these frivolities can wait. Launching as we speak in Steam Early Access, the Landlord’s providing the less complicated pleasures proper now. Home renovation, and getting completely knackered down the native.
Self-described as an “honest insight into English Culture”, Landlord’s Super is a build n’ drink n’ rent ’em up set within the fictional Thatcherite wastelands of West Berklands. Repair properties by laying bricks, tiling roofs, sourcing supplies…
Blimey, I’ve by no means had a landlord pull this a lot weight round in all my years of renting.
But all work and no play make Jack a uninteresting landlord. There’s an entire city filled with depressing strangers to speak to, steal from, or piss the hell off. Landlord’s Super may be, for those who so select, a game about getting completely sloshed in a manky ol’ pub ’til you’re pissing up your eyeballs, earlier than getting tossed out just like the sloshed, depressing, urine-soaked bastard that you’re.
Banned for peeing within the pub? My previous man all the time stated that place was a rest room, anyway.
Landlord’s Super is the work of Minskworks, the oldsters wot made Eastern European street journey Jalopy. Given the earnestness of the best way that game delivered its Soviet exodus, there’s heat past the gaffs right here too – a quiet celebration of the working class and getting by in your graft, even because the nation rots throughout. You’re nonetheless constructing one thing from nothing, in spite of everything – even when the instruments you used “fell off” the again of a truck.
Minskworks reckon the game can be in early entry for roughly a 12 months. The core gameplay, they declare, is ready in stone – proper now you possibly can restore the only property, get sloshed, and kick about on the town. What the devs really need are pointers in the place to go subsequent, whether or not that’s extra downtime interactions, energy instruments, slippery roofs or in any other case.
Landlord’s Super is out on Steam as we speak for £13.94/€15.11/$17.99. Just depart the place as you discovered it, yeah? We’re attempting to get our deposit again.
