Build, manage, resist!

The making of a strong stronghold are quite intricate; you could potentially make an undefeatable fortress, that cannot be entered, however, that can be too hard from the point of the resources required. Besides, you would have to make it so large, and encompass so much land, to have all the necessary resources inside. That, in a time of war, when you can barely trust the insiders of your stronghold (especially if they're left without beer or other consumable, hehe) can be quite difficult. So, all things considered, what you need to consider is a construction good enough to resist for a time, not forever. And that's your business in the game as well. You'll have limited time, limited resources, and complaining residents. Plus, war lurks at every step, so you'd better build judiciously, manage to feed and expand and make it so that you never leave yourself without no resources, as you'll sure need some later on, to rebuild or for other problems. In terms of graphics it sure is a game to love. The SSI counterpart, much older can also be a good option, though the second game in the Firefly version is a much more lovely experience, a less cluttered one.
