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.

Beware the Space Pirates

News

Dear Colony Managers, space is getting more frightening by now as a new threat is arising. Read about space pirates, special vendors, unique landing ships for all eight corporations and much more in our latest update release #45. Here's what we got for you this time:

  • Beware the Space Pirates
  • New Item: Resource Piracy
  • Unique Landing Ships
  • Three Specialized Traders
  • Resource Trading Partners and Auto-Trade
  • Emission Trade and Visualization
  • More New Features & Fixes

Beware the Space Pirates

These nasty creatures land a strange kind of unknown flying object right over your warehouse to plunder it with their tractor beam. Simultaneously they start firing their board cannon to vandalize your base.

You can helplessly sit back and relax until they have stolen enough and loose interest. Or, you can choose to pay a ransom or install an energy shield onto a tower to block the guys off from your warehouses. In later missions you might as well develop lasers or pulse canons to give them a warm welcome if they ever return...

New Item: Resource Piracy

These pirates are not only a threat that randomly happens. You can also craft a landing control to send them upon one of your opponents. Sweet addition: You get half of what their ship can steal.

Unique Landing Ships

We are proudly presenting individual colony landing ships for all eight corporations.

After having introduced the individual factions last update now you can tell the difference between them by looking at their landing ship, which is automatically expanded into the main city tower after landing.

Three Specialized Traders

They come around with awesome looking new space ships amazing landing animations ;-). And they are specialized to trade either wares, items and tech, or rare resources.

Resource Trading Partners and Auto-Trade

The resource panel has been split into a money and a resources part. This helps to put the four basic resource classes and their storing and trading issues directly into the middle of your attention.

It now also shows you if there is another colony or trader able and willing to sell a certain resource to you when you need it (e.g for crafting).

You can also activate the automatic purchase and sale of resources. Note that this involves trading with every potential trading partner - regardless of whether the price is fair or not.

Emission Trade and Visualization

The emission levy now always must be payed as soon, as a company on the planet has a negative emission balance. Environmentally friendly corporations get emission trade payouts if there is a company that pays in.
The global emission balance is now visualized with positive values when the world's climate is OK. It's represented with negative red numbers when climate balance is going bad. Much more intuitive isn't it?

More New Features

  • Now you get written info on all construct upgrades left to the tool ring.
  • The field info panel with details on deposits, pollution and other values of a single field is now also visible in navigation mode.
  • The probability of occurrence of riots and epidemics was too low. it has been increased by about 40%.
  • When using the seed bomb or nitro-skirlide seeds you can now see how well the plants will grow in that area.
  • There's now a countdown for competitors coming down and landing their capsules. This puts you a bit under time pressure to find the best place for the base.
  • You can buy landing permits in missions as soon as you got the second city center. Good news in case a city is burning down.
  • Temples can now be repaired.
  • Trading panel improvements

Fixes

  • Rewritten - Hypergate Ideon Objective - the vendor states out more clearly have to find and also sell the ideon crystal to him to open hyperspace gate into Udoxia Galaxy.
  • Rebalanced - Higher runtime costs for remediation centers
  • Fixed - Temples are no longer charging themselves apparently by surrounding nature or stuff
  • Fixed - Rocks had a shimmering on the surface as if they where rare resources
  • Fixed - A city center landing is now final - no more abort and vanishing of the landing capsule
  • Fixed - Background of colony value
  • Changed - Loading screens animations
  • Fixed - Many particle emitter problems
  • Fixed - Warehouse Upgrades couldn't be activated in the tech-panel
  • Fixed - Cure goal bar looked finished after half of the task
  • Fixed - Savegame buttons in sandbox mode or messed up
  • Highscore background bar is reworked
  • Fixes for Rounos mission: Joe story plot does not wait for clicking the quest icons anymore.
  • Tornado fix - still visible in navigation when multiple tornados in one field.
  • Midras Extractor Temple has model and animation fixes
  • Midras Digger fixed model and particle system. Dust when drilling.
  • Spaceport fixes

Thanks for your attention once again! We hope you enjoy playing Imagine Earth and share with us your ideas on development.
