After wrecking dragons, ruining dinner tables with a Fus-Ro-Dah, and running away from giants, a body tires and the mind drifts towards thoughts of settling down.

I’ll be interested to see how deterministic the house building will be. Is there a linear upgrade path to follow or will I be able to build crazy futurist homes?

Xbox 360 players will be able to settle their lives down come September 4th for 400 MS Points. No other platforms have been announced.
