Civitatem is a medieval city builder where you help your villagers raise a new settlement in dangerous lands by making use of their skills and available world resources. Shape the future of your people by managing and assigning the most skilled villager for each task. Educate them and research new technologies, fight off the natural elements or raiders and explore the land for new villages to develop new trades routes, acquire new technologies and develop diplomatic relations.

The most important resource are your villagers, each specialized in some areas, gaining experience each time they perform a task. Educate them in schools and libraries to allow them to perform more complex tasks and jobs. Besides education the health of your people is imperative so herbalists and doctors are also quite important.

Nature has always had her way since the beginning of time so be prepared each season to face storms, disease, quakes and other events. Gaining high education, technology and constructing a strong settlement will help you survive in these troublesome times, but be prepared to defend your village from raiders, wild animals and unfriendly neighbors.

  • Procedural Maps - Territory Maps and Land maps are procedural generated along with the resources.
  • Villager Needs - Each villager has a certain numbers of needs for him to survive. Not fulfilling his needs like having access to food, shelter and water, might lead to the villager's death or him and his family departing your lands..
  • Dynamic Events - Every season is a challenge. From a chance to being raided by some greedy raiders, getting attacked by wildlife or experiencing a natural disaster, there is no time to relax, unless you are prepared. Not all events are negative. There are also positive events that might help your village grow faster.
  • Seasons, Day and Night cycle and Weather - Seasons are important due to weather, temperature and times to harvest and plant crops.
  • Research System - By educating and acquiring books for your people you can develop new technologies ranging from military to farming and architecture. Some technologies will be unlocked only when you perform certain actions.
  • Crafting - having the best armors, weapons and tools is the route to success in these dangerous lands.
  • Territory Exploration and Diplomacy - Besides your territory, you can send scouts to search the land for other villages and points of interest with which you can interact, providing rewards ranging from acquiring new books for your libraries to developing trade treaties or other diplomatic relations.

Civitatem is currently in development in Pre-Alpha and is planned to be released in Early Access on the official site and Steam in Q1 2018

It’s been quite some months since my last dev blog, but that will change during the next weeks/months since we are only 3-4 months until the release of Alpha 1. I recently released the first video, a teaser to show a bit of gameplay, and i’m planning to release more in the next few weeks, showing more detailed gameplay, features and probably create a Let’s Play as well.

For those that want to support the game early i decided to open the Pre-Orders page. By pre-ordering now you will be able to name a villager, access the upcoming closed tests and previews, DRM free copy and Steam Key on Early Access release in Q1 2018. More details:
