Build Global Civilizations
In this economic strategy game, you’ll be able to raise global civilizations from the ground or drive entire planets into climate collapse. Imagine Earth is a relaxed build-up simulation can turn into a ecologic survival thriller based on your development decisions.
The game puts gamers in the position of a global economic player. He has to build and supply his colonies, produce goods and sell them into space, and compete with other corporations. To maintain the quality of life for his inhabitants and avoid a climate crisis, he must do research and development to balance growth and sustainability.

Imagine Earth looks kind of cool
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 and Threats
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.
Growth and Destruction
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 can exploit the 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.
