Imagine Earth

Planetary Colonization

Imagine Earth is a real-time planet simulation and a build up strategy game. Your job as a space colony manager is to explore and populate distant planets. Build up thriving and profitable colonies on a global scale and trade resources and goods into space.

Mission Goals Briefing

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.

Capitalist Space Age

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.

Mission Goals BriefingCompetition and Economic Warfare

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.

Trade Resources and Technologies

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.

Mission Goals BriefingGrowth 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.

Features

  • Global and real-time world experience instead of playing on limited square maps.
  • Fully playable and story based campaign with 7 planets / missions.
  • Freeplay mode with a procedural planet generator for endless worlds and challenges.
  • Competition mode for matches against up to 4 AI corporations per planet.
  • Planet Editor for terraforming, building and customizing individual planets which can be saved and shared.
  • Development of over 30 colony buildings with individual upgrades.
  • Global simulation of local pollution and worldwide emissions.
  • Threats and disasters: Chemical spills, oil slicks, radioactive contamination, wild fires, tornadoes, volcanoes, dying forest and growing deserts, alien and robotic invaders, etc.
  • Melting polar caps will raise sea levels and flood your coasts in case of global warming.

This is fresh in Update #43:

    • Display info icons during colony placement
    • Trade discounts and surcharges
    • Ocean district
    • UI improvements for research, colony shares and workshop
    • List of gameplay improvements
    • New rendering system for buildings and world objects

Colony Placement


Placing a new colony or frontier building now displays icons on the surrounding fields. The represent the quality of the area by highlighting deserts, fields with high fertility, fossil or rare resources and more.

Trade Discounts


The price of resources and items always depends on who you are trading with. Space merchants and tech traders will charge a fee that makes buying more expensive and selling less lucrative. Natives and midras on the other side don't know a lot about space market prices and often sell stuff very cheap.

Other colonists, finally, link their pricing to your diplomatic relation. This means it can be very powerful to have a good relation towards another company.

Ocean District


This new district is now made available in the Lorian mission.

The ocean district can be built on coast fields and the open sea. Districts have to be linked to others who connect with the shore.

Microplastic collectors clean the seas and recover goods by filtering floating plastic, other waste and impurities from the water.

Ocean thermal energy conversion uses the temperature difference between cooler deep sea and warmer surface water to meet part of the energy demand.

UI Improvements


Research

    • Only display elements of buildings that are already available (the buildings don't have to be licensed, though)
    • Highlight research options by improved category: energy, food, goods, income, emissions

Colony Share Trading

    • Take-over of a city no longer needs at least 50% of shares
    • Clearly display the player's stake in another colony
    • Tooltip with transaction fee and expected dividend

Workshop

    • Unite different item categories in single panel with scroll bars

Other UI Stuff

    • Added "mission failed" dialog to competitions
    • Highlight when an opposing faction is almost winning the competition
    • "Back" buttons in game are now called "resume game" to make it more clear
    • Infrastructure buildings now have gray icons

Gameplay

    • In competition and free play other factions will no longer wait until you have placed your first city center
    • Forests and other plants regrow much faster now after being harvested or burning
    • Increased number of default tech licenses in competition and free play

Graphics & Tech

We have completely rewritten our rendering system for buildings and other world objects:

    • Improved render performance
    • Much nicer animations
    • More powerful particle effects
