    THE ‘HOOD – May 11th, 2017

    Award-winning Community Builder Block’hood Expands Out of Early Access and Into Your Neighborhood

    – Games for Change winner for Best Gameplay Goes 1.0, Available Now on Steam –

    Lauded architects at Plethora Project and amateur ecologists Devolver Digital announce that eco-friendly city builder Block’hood has officially launched on Steam for PC and Mac and is currently 25 percent off for launch week. Ambitiously lead by Jose Sanchez, a professor of architecture at University of Southern California, Block’hood celebrates the diversity and experimentation of city planning and the unique ecosystems within them.

    Announced for the Early Access program in 2015, Block’hood has achieved several accolades and recognition for its approach to conscious building and city planning. Budding city planners now have access to more than 200 building blocks from the original 90 to arrange and combine,creating unique neighborhoods and the sometimes surprising consequences of their designs.

    Additional resources are always needed to unlock new blocks, configurations, and combinations to create more prosperous neighborhoods. Throughout the design process, players will need to avoid the decay of their city blocks by making sure each unit doesn’t run out of resources and become a strain on the complimentary units around them.

    With a five episode story mode now complete, players are able to experience a heartwarming tale about a boy, his pet and his neighborhood as well as explore other modes like Challenge mode, Sandbox mode and Education mode. Additionally, the title has undergone a complete aesthetic update that iterates on the already unique and eye-pleasing design of the original.
