Default What's this game called?

I can't remember all that much about it.
It was a strategy game from a few years ago. You started with a couple guys and would build a little township. Not a big army tactical like Cossacks etc, set further in the past i think. Definitely grass roots strategy.

I know this is gonna be hard, but i need to name this game.
Urm, i think the character you start with was called, Bjork, or Benji or something, but i can't be sure.

Please please, i'll know it when i see screenies, so if we can draft some names that'd help a bunch.

ofc; rep is up for grabs

EDIT>> Having to add info as i remember it, i remember it was real time definitely not turn-based, and that your villagers or whatever they were called would have families and kids etc. instead of the more generic approach to villagers where they were just drones.

The peasant units would have families male and female together and have kids.

Didn't spot anything that clicked. Lot of great games there though

Gosh this is bugging me

You'd send your peasants into their house, something'd happen then a stork flies over and you've got kids.
Come on people, pretty please

A big bit of /b/rotherhood heralded the answer
