How will this game handle death of settlers ?/ will there be gameover?

After playing T&S I can’t say I am a big fan of how they handle the death or your settlers.

How will this game handle that and will there be game over ?

Personally I would rather there be a loss of resources/armour/house destruction (say from enemies attacks), loss in XP (assuming settlers have levels) and KO’d settlers would be a better idea.

So for example, when a monster defeats your settlers they will move on and destroy your town, steal your resources/armour etc, after they leave your KO’d settlers would be weakened and have lost XP.

What is everyone’s opinion on this ?
Would be interesting to see what the devs have in mind also :smiley:
