Upcoming medieval-esque city builder Banished will have a "follow mode." Here's a video of what it looks like.

Basically, follow mode allows you to get rid of the user interface and zoom in on and follow the day-to-day activities of one of your colonists, whether they're working, getting something to eat, heading home, or, say, dying in a horrible mining accident. It's a small addition, but one that helps you get that much closer to the people keeping your town afloat. A nice thing to have, for sure.

Banished is expected on PC "before the end of the year."
