You start off with seven cities that were inspired by real-world places and the ability to manipulate each one to your liking, with access to over fourty well-known landmarks to add to the mix.

Since you're the town's keeper, it's up to you to ensure safety during catastrophes like blizzards, electrical storms, locust plagues, or even meteor showers all around. As if that wasn't enough, you can even be struck by multiple disasters at once. Have fun with that.
