How do you feel about revisiting previously played games? I love visiting family all the time. Video games are a little different though. I’m straightforward when it comes to how I approach a game. I like to play and see it to my own personal consequence, whether it’s beating the game, or often losing and forgetting. I do a lot with games I’m not reviewing. It’s always the games I’ve bought that get overlooked the most. When I first tried Fabledom it was as a preview for the Gaming Nexus. About a year has come and gone since then, and the fabledum has grown. I recently had a chance to come back and see how the development ended up. Turns out, the path it was on was built with care and support.

Lucky for me, the story of fabledum hasn’t changed at all. This fantasy city builder stays true to its original roots. You still inherit a thriving kingdom, and it’s time to make your way in this world. Find your land, settle it, and grow it into a kingdom. It’s easier than it sounds. People just start showing up. I like that each NPC is given a first, gentle, name. It’s nice to see such small hands, and makes me think that even something as trivial as naming an NPC will have zero contact with it in my time.

Fabledom’s visual appeal has thankfully been consistently outstanding. The game’s combination of realistic and cartoonish elements is a visual treat. The environments are beautifully crafted, and the buildings are a testament to the game’s aesthetic appeal. Fabledom continues to be a joy to watch. I especially like the look of the winter season and fabled areas. It’s not just the visual glamor of Fabledom that I admire. The dialogue is very good. Funny, charming, hilarious – I love their take on it.



Diplomacy is the biggest addition to help drive home the idea that Fabledom isn’t the same game it was in Early Access. You have other cities that you don’t control, where you can interact with these leaders. You can also marry a neighbor if you want. Deciding how to deal with neighbors, aggressive or friendly, is up to you. But, who you choose to marry, how you handle certain aspects determines how certain conflicts will be answered.

I started a new game, hating the idea of ​​starting where I left off. While I could do this, I would feel completely lost in what I wanted to accomplish. When I left Fabledom, there were still many features that were not available to me. It has changed since then, so I felt a fresh start was best. I found the tutorial just as annoying, if not more so than before. It more or less tells you how to play, step by step. I knew exactly what I was doing in the early stages of Fabledom. I knew where I could set up buildings and where I couldn’t.

My biggest gripe is just the timing loop that the game forces the player into. Everything takes time, and Fabledom wants you to know. At one point I turned on a show with my second screen to help kill some time. But it worked well. I was able to watch a show and play Fabledom with no problems. With everything feeling like it had slowed down there was a sense of repetition. I think Fabledom has enough to keep me entertained for hours, but it feels like I’m repeating myself in my actions too often.

There is always new land to grab and turn into something, farms, condos, refineries of some kind. It feels never-ending. Sometimes in a good way, I’ll play a few more turns before calling it a night. It also feels like I don’t know why I’m spending all this time playing. The slow time may be due to some changes in the way resource management works. I don’t remember enough of my previous experience to nail down a specific change, but one was made, and it didn’t completely stop progress during the game, but rather slowed my overall progress. It has led to behavior. The biggest problem came when my people were starving due to lack of resources. It became unsustainable.

I’ve come to the conclusion that Fabledom is still solid. Problems, yes, and lots of them. But it’s a well-made game that runs without any issues and has a lot of replay value. Patience is the name of the game. There’s no need to rush, while playing has an end game in mind, it will take time to get there. Enjoy the ride – I found it worth taking. Get a few games under your belt and you can start to spot potential problems and learn how to better prepare for your next race.
