The Base Building tag is used to describe a gameplay element or feature in video games where players construct and develop a base, fortress, or any type of home base. It involves gathering resources, managing construction projects, and customizing the layout and design of the base to suit the player's needs.

In games with a base building mechanic, players start with a small or basic structure and gradually expand it over time. The goal is to create a functional and fortified space that provides various benefits such as shelter, storage for resources, production facilities, defensive structures against enemies or natural disasters, research facilities for advancement in technology or skills, etc.

The base building element adds depth and strategy to the gameplay experience. It requires players to carefully manage their resources and make decisions about what structures to prioritize for expansion or enhancement. It also often introduces an element of risk versus reward as players may need to venture out from their secure bases in order to gather necessary resources.

Examples of games that prominently feature base building mechanics include:

  • Minecraft In this sandbox game, players gather materials from the environment to construct elaborate structures such as houses, castles, farms, factories, etc.
  • RimWorld RimWorld allows players to build colonies on an alien planet by constructing various buildings like housing units, research labs, greenhouses and more. This helps them survive against environmental challenges and hostile forces.
  • Factorio In Factorio, players must build automated factories to mine resources, manufacture products, and defend their bases from enemy attacks. The design, organization, management, and expansion strategies are crucial for success.
  • Fallout 4 While this game is primarily an open-world RPG, it also includes base building mechanics. Players can construct and customize their own settlements, establishing structures like homes, farms, defense systems, and more in a post-apocalyptic world.

Base building adds a layer of creativity and progression to games. It allows players to create their own unique spaces while fostering a sense of ownership and investment in the game world. Base building mechanics can be found in various genres such as survival games, strategy games, RPGs, and even certain first-person shooters.
