Category: Base Building

Base building games are a subgenre of real-time strategy games where players are responsible for constructing and maintaining a base. Though the specific tasks required vary from game to game, typically players will need to gather resources, build structures, and train units in order to complete objectives. These games often emphasize planning and resource management, as players must carefully allocate their resources in order to most efficiently complete their objectives. Some well-known base-building games include StarCraft, Command & Conquer, and Age of Empires. Though they can be challenging, games are often very rewarding, as players feel a sense of accomplishment as they watch their base grow and thrive.
