Here's a secret: Workers & Resources: Soviet Republic is the year's best city- and industry-building sim. No, it's not fully released yet; it's in Steam Early Access. That's beside the point. I can't throw an official game-of-the-year nomination at it until it fully launches, but that doesn't matter when you can throw up Communist bloc housing and statues of Comrade Lenin over an immense Eastern European countryside to the tune of Tetris pop music.
All of that aside, however, Workers & Resources Update #2 is out and there's a lot going on. It's to the point where developer 3Division appears ready to hand you the keys to development yourself. Update #2 adds Steam Workshop support for all your modding needs, along with the ability to upload new buildings and your own vehicle skins—or upload entirely new vehicles altogether. Plus an editor for creating your own landscapes. All this along with a "100% increase" to performance. I'll take it.
This is all good news for such an incredible sim that lets you manage nearly every aspect of your republic, from the economy, resource mining, and goods manufacturing, to construction, investments, and the ability to ping each and every citizen living in your country. I never thought being caught smack dab between the Soviets to the east and the democrats to the west would be so much architectural fun! And just wait until those vehicular logistics hook you, boy oh boy. (I sound like I'm kidding but I'm dead serious.)
