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.

Assimilator Drones

We wrapped up the most important changes of release 33 and 34 in a devlog video again.

TL;DR

  • Electronic Employee is now called Assimilator and comes with a floating drone
  • Laser und Pulse Cannon can now both be used against asteroids, Xrathul harvesters and Assimilator drones
  • Ideon Bomb and Explosive Device can be used in new ways - even against the Assimilator
  • Blow up mountains to get more rare resources
  • New campaign bonus mission on ice planet Iqunox
  • Wake up sleeping volcanoes with ideon bombs
  • Added second main objective to Tuto mission
  • Electronics Factory

Assimilator Drone

This first point is partly a spoiler. So jump right over it, if you haven't played the Bora mission yet.

As you know the Bora mission introduces a threat that is kind of an end boss for the campaign. This "Assimilator" (previously "Electronic Employee") spreads its cables from field to field to reach your City Center in order to assimilate it.

The assimilator now comes with a floating drone monstrosity that increases it's territory field by field. You can use frontier towers with laser or pulse cannons to defend against it.

Be careful though - the assimilator drone will fight back with a small laser cannon and thus might destroy your defense. And your cannons will only allow you to stop the assimilator from expanding. Meanwhile costing money and your precious attention.

There are several ways to get rid of it. Use asteroid strikes or volcano eruptions. Or expand your territory and apply explosive devices or an ideon bomb.

Assimilator Drones by Night

Laser and Pulse Cannon

The laser and pulse cannon now attack all enemies and dangers that approach you. We have change the values for fire and reload duration and damage and defined how each cannon interacts with the different targets.

E.g. the laser will do triple damage to asteroids and thus destroy it with one shot - just because it is optimized for this purpose.

Towers no longer take fire when being damaged and health is over 25%. You can repair them and they go on shooting.

Imagine Earth - Blow Up Mountain

Ideon Bomb and Explosive Device

We have put some work into improving our blasting items. Both are now dropped by one of the drones starting from the City Center.

Indiedb.com

The Explosive Device allows the immediate blasting of mountains, rocks, buildings and ruins in your area and on all fields directly adjacent to it - the later one is especially helpful to defend yourself against Assimilator.

The Ideon Bomb has multiple times the effect of an explosive device on an area of four fields. It also disintegrates big mountains and wakes up sleeping volcanoes.

Blasting single field and big mountains will leave the fields with rocks that may contain the rare resources gold and titanium.

Ice Planet Iqunox & Sleeping Volcanoes

We have added the third bonus mission to our campaign.

Imagine Earth - Ice Planet

Since the outbreak of the pan-galactic plaque in this sector of the Udoxia Galaxy the demand for an antidote has skyrocketed.

On planet Iqunox which was known only for its cold and miserable living conditions, giant coral deposits have been discovered.

You will be one of three contractors who are send to extract the coral antidote for the U.S.U.

Sleeping volcanoes are spread all over the planet. You can use Ideon bombs to wake them up and increase the temperate on surrounding fields a few degrees - enough to get rid of the snow and grow food more effectively.

Imagine Earth - Wake Up Volcano

Imagine Earth - Volcano has woken up

The Iqunox mission also adds the "Emission balance" as a new victory point type: It starts tracking from 20:00 onward. The leader needs to surpass others by at least 40.

Rare Resource Goal on Tuto

Planetary colonization is foremost about making a backup of humanity and populating new worlds. But there is another important goal: Exploiting resources!

To reflect this point we have added a second main objective to the first mission on planet Tuto. It introduces all the recently added gameplay mechanisms for rare resource harvesting, item crafting and blasting mountains.

Electronics Factory

The Electronics Factory replaces the existing Mall. It produces complex electronics and needs trained staff. For that reason it is more efficient next to city parts and research districts. It features "Chemical Filters" and "Entertainment Devices" as upgrades.

The Factory has been renamed to Machine Factory to make it easier distinguishable.

Other

  • Fixed a hovering problem of the bookmark panel
  • Storage upgrades for warehouse have been removed from the research system
  • Removed asteroid explosion graphic bugs on start of freeplay and competition matches
  • Show asteroids in bookmark panel (top right of the screen)
  • Reduced price for asteroid strikes to 65.000€
