Your job as a space colony manager is to explore and populate distant worlds. Build up thriving colonies on a global scale. Trade resources and goods into space and provide sustainable living conditions for your people.
The game is set in the age of planetary colonization in which huge corporations are struggleing for economic supremacy on newly discovered planets. This race for growth and profits can even lead to global climate collapse. Prevent the history of the Earth from repeating itself by doing research and development.
Imagine Earth is a real-time buildup simulation and an economic strategy game with an environmental planet simulation.
Expansion & Research
Raise great cities and satisfy their appetite for resources by building power plants, farms and factories. Dig for ideon crystals, pacify riots, research technologies and constructs and maximize your growth while maintaining a healthy ecosystem.
Allies, Threats & Enemies
Get ready to deal with threats like asteroid strikes, twisters, wild fires, volcanoes and rising sea levels. Fend off space raiders and alien investors. Coexist and trade with natives, merchants and hostile colonies.
In 2048 huge corporations have divided Earth among themselves and exploited its natural resources to a large extent. Now the discovery of ideon crystals allows journeys into space, while technologically and ideologically almost everything remains the same. The laws of the market are being spread into the universe.
Growth vs. Ecocide
You will experience a massive conflict between the profit goals of the interstellar corporations and the need to preserve living conditions for your people. Exhaust emissions and ground pollution impact the global climate as your colony is growing. Increasing temperatures melt down polar caps and your colonies are destroyed by rising sea levels.
On each discovered planet a competition for economic dominance breaks out. To expand your colony as fast as possible and overcome your opponents you exploit the freely available fossil resources and minerals. Additional money is provided by selling shares of your colony. Take over opposing companies by buying up their shares.
Resources and Goods Trade
Merchants and technology traders organize the interplanetary trade and will happily buy all minerals and resources you extract from your territory while selling expensive technologies. The same goes for cooperating colonies and alien tribes that live on some of the planets.
Climate change is apparently a widely underestimated threat, as well in computer games. The idea behind Imagine Earth is to put the most serious problem of latest human history into a thrilling and motivating game flow. In that context the game is an experimental world simulation that might turn into a climate survival thriller.
Imagine Earth directs this quest for balance to the player. What would you do if you where in charge of a global civilization? Imagine Earth wants to offer the biggest possible amount of freedom of choice to players so they can find their own answers and development strategies.
