Settlers III from Blue Byte is the second sequel to the popular Settlers game and follows a similar storyline. You take control of a small group of shipwrecked people and, using the materials available from the shipwreck, start up a small colony.
The aim of the game is to fully populate and colonize the island. You'll get to build a miniature, thriving economy based on mines, farms, bakeries and saw mills. You'll have to ensure that your people remain fed and happy to keep them producing as much as possible. As everything is produced internally, your settlers do not have to worry about mundane things like money or other forms of currency.
You also need to build up military structures and armies. You'll need your military for protection and perhaps to expand your colony's borders into the dangerous unknown, increasing the size and potential of your empire. But beware, there is a rival race out there with similar intentions. ~ Nick Smith, All Game Guide
