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.

News

Mushroom Vegetation


Maybe you where one of those who perceived our planets as a bit too normal and not very alien-like. We had the same feeling for some time and saw chance to try something new in terms of vegetation. The whole set of forests (8 bioms + 1 underwater) is now being replaced on two of the six campaign planets to make their themes more diversified. It also triggered us to do another set of vegetation besides trees and mushrooms. Could be giant ferns or totally alienated, glowing crystal plants. Any ideas?

Epic Background Story


We heard it from time to time and felt the same way. The campaign was lacking a bigger context for the story. We have added this now in the form of cut scenes told in the campaign screen. This links all the missions to a big picture and a real goal that is followed by you and the other companies.

Resource Storage


A minimum of 10% goods will always be put into storage if you prioritize a certain resource. That keeps you from waiting for a resource package you wanted to store when the production value of the resource is low.

No More Fake AI on Rounos


On the Rounos mission we had a scripted enemy which could finally be replaced by our AI. In addition we have polished the mission on planet Rounos. There were serious balancing issues that are hopefully working out much better now.

New Flashy Quest Icons


You can recognize much easier when there are important events somewhere on the planet. Quest icons have pulsing markers around themselves. In addition these quests are arranged in an own line in the bookmark panel. You can jump to these Events simply by pressing TAB.

New Features

    • New resource warning icons
    • Achieved goals will be shown and highlighted in cut scenes
    • AI cares about food & goods diversity
    • Traders will trade craftable Icons only occasionally
    • Fires won't spread so fast anymore

Fixed Bugs

    • Forest had plus on themselves
    • pollution effects were to high
    • Improved pest and epidemic particle effects
    • AI relied too much on oil platforms
    • No AI enemies where spawning in competition mode
    • Natives mood and goods usage
    • Native camp model had reflected surfaces
    • Fishery reduced its own productivity
    • Game crashes with access denied folders
