Banished is a city-building simulation game with many strategy elements designed by Shining Rock Software for the PC. In it, the player controls a small group of exiled travelers who are now looking to build their own civilization with what little materials they have - clothing and natural resources found on their new land and in their travels.
The one goal of this small population is to develop and further themselves as a community, and that is the objective of the player. In order to do this, the player must utilize structures of different types and materials, and assign professions to the citizens living within the new community. Survival and growth are key in this game.
