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.

TL;DR

  • The sea farm is a new food producing building.
  • Forest, rocks and rare resources are now harvested with drones that are stationed at your warehouses.
  • Researched items can now be reset in the campaign screen.
  • We have updated the official trailer. Check it out here.
  • Midras and natives now trade with gold instead of money.
  • Land claiming and tower claim visualizations have been optimized.
  • Day & night lighting improved.
  • Fixed a lot of small problems and balancing stuff in the Tuto, Magni and Bora missions

Sea Farms

Building of the month is the new construct called sea farm. It can be build on coast fields and sea fields adjacent to land (called „near-shore“). It works as port logistics for offshore fishing boats and the building can also breed shellfish to intensify food production for higher pollution values. The smokehouse upgrades makes its food production more durable, but comes with higher running costs.

Sea Farms

Harvest Drones

Little drones that fly around and actually harvest the stuff you ordered to crop or gather. They are stationed on the warehouse and limit the number of crop actions that you can make. But most of all they are pretty good looking and the AI uses them too.

Harvest Drones

Reset Research

You can now reset your research decisions and strategy in the campaign screen.

New Official Trailer

The Trailer was reworked to show some more actual footage from the game. It has grown old as i had no time to change the video material for nearly two years. Really ;D Check it out here.

Exploding volcano

New Construction Site

The construction site model is more advanced now. In the next version we want to add individual build and landing animations, also for space ships to make everything a bit more cinematic…

Tower Range Visualization Changed

From now on if you construct, deconstruct or relocate towers you see a red visualization for the land you loose and blue marks on the field you claim. Expensive Upgrades will be relocated as well.

Planetary Power Shield

Planet Day & Night Lighting

The Planet was always too dark and contrast less on the night side. With the new moon light night shifts now have become much easier.

Gold Trading

Some NPCs like Natives & Midras will no longer trade for the universal currency of the galaxy. They stick to the gold standard and you can buy gold from merchants or dig it out yourself. These guys will also pay you for certain resources they’re interested in with gold, so you can gather exchange values this way as well.

Mission Goals Briefing

Special Upgrade Items in the Shop

Laser, Pulse & Shield Upgrades Items can now be bought from traders. This is especially helpful in the Lorian and Magni missions. So if you do not research you can still defend yourself against alien threats and stuff.

Land Claims Repriced

This tool just got more cost intensive as well. It’s price depends on the distance to the outer radius of your city center. This means the price gets higher the farer away you claim land from your city.

Start Screen, Main Menu

Mission Improvements

Excessive bugfixes and roundups for the missions on Tuto, Magni and Bora.

Other stuff

  • Bookmark panel shows twisters and Xrathul harvesters
  • Several editor fixes
  • Improved animation quality for drones
  • Fixed game-speed dependent particle generation
  • Improved city level up animation
  • Reduced forest’s sensitivity to temperature and fertility
  • Renamed meteoroid to asteroid to better reflect size relations and impact
  • Cursor shows progress ring when tooltips are coming up
  • Fixed sandbox menu
  • Improved hyperspace gate menu
