Playdom Launches City of Wonder


Playdom flipped the switch on a brand new town building game this week: City of Wonder! The new game differentiates itself from Social City and other town building titles with its historical theme. Players begin the game with a very small stone-age village, but by researching new technologies, it is possible to advance through the ages, and eventually build modern structures.

At its core, the game isn’t radically different than Social City. Players will build and place housing structures, which slowly add to a player’s total population over time. A player’s total population is capped according to how many cultural buildings they have placed. Finally, players can place businesses in their village to earn extra money. So in this way, City of Wonder ensures players have an even mixture of every building type as their village grows and evolves.

City of Wonder’s other key pillar seems to be researching new technologies. Each technology learned unlocks access to new buildings and decorations, as well as even more advanced technology options. Learning Mysticism allowed us to construct Stonehenge, for example.

We’ll have more on City of Wonder, including an examination of the game’s military and expedition system, in a future post.
