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

Hi Guys,

After many months of development and testing, Civitatem is now available on Steam and on the official site. It's been quite a journey and can't wait to hear you feedback, first impressions and what not.

I want to thank all the early adopters for raising my morale and helping me with feedback. You will meet them in-game as villagers (yellow names).

From now on expect small patches each week, sometimes even more often, when is needed, and large content / features updates, once per month.

Upcoming features:

- Exploration mini-game: Explore the region around you for resources, discover other villagers to trade with and developer diplomatic relations, and encounter random events on the map.
- First version of combat, and raids against your settlement.
- More buildings, resources and needs + more random events within the village.

Thank you for your support,

LW Games
