Build and maintain a power grid for a constantly growing population, while fighting off all kinds of disasters in this thrilling resource management experience. It's time for you to give "Power to the People"! Do you have what it takes to keep the lights on?

Population is always increasing, and cities require more and more electricity in order to function as time goes by. Can you keep up with the ever growing energy demand? Remember, if there are blackouts and your customers are not satisfied, you'll be out of a job!

Do you believe in nuclear power as the solution for humankind's energy production problems? Or are you more of a renewable energy fan? Or perhaps you prefer to go old school and stick to fossil fuels? Power to the People offers you a wide array of power plant types and energy storage solutions so you can design your grid exactly how you want it, while taking advantage of the local resources and climate.

Don't push your substations and power lines too hard for too long, or bad things will happen and everyone will be left in the dark... And it will be game over for you!

Did you think things were hard enough as they were? Well, hold your horses, as you'll also have to face solar flares, lightning bolts, trees falling on your power lines and other disasters that will keep you on your toes. Always have a backup plan, and try to get things up and running quickly again, or otherwise customer satisfaction will plummet!

After a successful Steam Next Fest, Power to the People has collected some valuable feedback and will be continuing to improve the game to ensure the ultimate player experience. Thousands of people had downloaded the demo to try their hand at building and maintaining their city's power grid and the response was overwhelmingly positive!

Now, here is the most recent update for Power to the People:

New Random Events

There's now a whole new array of random events to keep you on your toes! And, even better, some of these will require you to connect high voltage power lines directly to high power usage special buildings. Keep your power grid running smoothly so that the lights at the new electric ferry terminal or at the mysterious high-tech research center stay on!


Loans Feature

Yes! The brand new "loans" feature is finally here. Now you'll be able to borrow money to fix and expand your infrastructure when you're in trouble. But be careful, everything has a price!


More Settings

Thanks to all the feedback that's been gathered after the release of the demo, there will be additional settings added to the game. These new settings will ensure that the game can be played comfortably by people with different hardware, skills, and playstyles. Now, you can choose a different size for the game's user interface (one that works best for your hardware and screen size) and configure how the camera's movement works.


Power to the People!

The people at Hermes Interactive are obsessed with small details, that's why they've added a fun new feature to the game. Now, if you make your residents angry due to frequent blackouts, they'll take to the streets and express their unhappiness. Pass the pitchforks and torches!
