Build your own space colony in Imagine Earth – a city and world sim with strategy. Various planets are waiting to be explored and populated … or destroyed!
Raise great cities and supply the needs of your growing population by building power plants, farms and factories. The challenge is to deal with the whole planetary ecosystem and its natural limitations in fossil resources and environmental resilience. Do research for renewable energy sources and develop sustainable production lines to avoid overgrowth and climate collapse of your new homeworlds.
The final Challenge
You will soon encounter conflict between the profit goals of interstellar corporations and the need to preserve the living conditions for your people. Will it end up in tremendous desolation or can you lead your colony into wealth and prosperity?
- 6 planets of different style and increasing magnitude
- Rotate, view and build on the whole planet
- A motivating bonus goal system drives you into expansion
- 30 individual constructs with more than 60 upgrades
- Disasters: chemical spills, oil slicks, radioactive contamination, wild fires, tornados, dying forest and growing deserts will increase with the emissions of your colony.
- Melting polar caps will raise the sea level and flood your coasts in process of global warming.
.. is apparently the most underestimated thread in the history of computer games. The idea behind Imagine Earth was to put this thrilling background into a motivating gameflow. This is turning it into a kind of experimental world simulation with a mildly ironic story setting. The game wants to offer the biggest possible freedom of choice to the player so he can develop his own development strategies.
