Imagine Earth is a futuristic world simulation. Your job as a space colony manager is to explore and populate distant planets. Build up thriving and profitable colonies on a global scale without destroying your homeworld. Deal with threats like meteorite strikes, twisters and wild fires. Coexist and trade with natives, alien investors and hostile colonies, dig for Ideon crystals, pacify riots and master the perfect production chain of many constructs and technologies available.
Raise great cities and satisfy their growing apetite with resources 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.
You will soon encounter conflict between the profit goals of interstellar corporations and the need to preserve the living conditions for your people. Can you prevent tremendous desolation and lead your colony into wealth and prosperity?

Climate Change is apparently the most underestimated threat 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.
