Об этой игре

Children of the Nile™ (англ. Дети Нила) — уникальная градостроительная игра, непревзойденная как по масштабу, так и по вниманию к деталям

В роли фараона вы проведете свой народ через тысячи лет его истории: от охотников и собирателей до бессмертной цивилизации. Ведите свой народ верой и правдой — и вы построите впечатляющие пирамиды, исследуете древний мир и возглавите войну против своих врагов.

Каждый житель вашего города — развитый живой человек, член семьи, обладающий своими желаниями и потребностями. Священники и шуты, писари и рабочие, даже люди благородных кровей: у каждого есть потребность в еде, и это только начало. Каждый каменный блок для вашей пирамиды будут тянуть люди, молящиеся богам в ваших храмах. Под вашим надзором расцветет местная экономика и будут производиться, продаваться и приносить радость обитателям города самые разнообразные товары: от плетеных корзин до золотых украшений.

Для достижения бессмертия фараону необходимо оставить свой след в мире далеко за пределами своего города. Исследуйте заграничный мир и откройте торговлю с соседями, и у вас появится повод построить чудеса света, которые сохранят память о вашей династии на века. По мере роста вашей славы вы сможете привлечь все больше и больше людей к своим амбициозным проектам и возведете воистину легендарные города.

Чем же запомнится ваша династия?

Хорошая игра! Для тех, кто не в ладах с иностранными языками, я в "Руководствах" расписал, как её русифицировать.

Мне понравилась, не совсем обычная градостроительная стратегия про древних Египтян.

Children of the Nile is the more modern version of the old citybuilders like Pharaoh And Zeus, allowing you to build a city in ancient Egypt. Some of the more modern things are, aside from the obvious graphics being different, that you no longer need to worry about intersections sending your supply and maintenance people entirely the wrong direction. You can now actually focus on building a city, rather than having to puzzle out the most efficient way to place buildings without them collapsing, catching fire, and starving because the food vendor doesn't show up there.

Citizens in your city are in a class society. From top to bottom, they are the pharaoh. That is you, and your family. You have a palace, and your family goes out to collect any sort of material, be it luxury goods or a humble pot to store things in. You are the state. All food belonging to the city also belongs to you, but you will always have a nice supply of food stored away in your palace. Pharaoh gets first pick, and a percentage of all food farmed in taxes.
Just below you are the nobles, who live in large houses and get their income from the farmers under them, and in order to support a large farming population, you will need nobles to guide them.
Under the nobles are the educated elite. Priests, scribes, overseers, and commanders of the military. They have similar demands as nobles in terms of luxuries, but they are paid by the government for their services. Only the sons of nobles and luxury shopkeepers qualify for education. These are the doctors, the administration, and the tax collectors. Because nobles will try to dodge paying taxes, a scribe can catalogue how many fields have been sown so that you know exactly how much belongs to Pharaoh.

Under them still, the middle class. Entertainers and shopkeepers. These earn their bread through their services and the goods they sell. Simple, but neccesary for society to function.
Below them, the peasantry. Farmers and servants. The farmers work the land and earn enough food to last until next harvest in doing so, and the servants do the shopping for nobles and collect resources for luxury shopkeepers - So they don't have to mingle with the common folk.
Separate from them all are government workers. They fit somewhere between the middle class and peasantry, and are paid generously by Pharaoh's bread. They are the brickmakers, the construction workers for bigger buildings(Small buildings like a servant's shack are made by the servants themselves), and anything else government wants from a papyrus maker up to the military.

If at any time your system fails and the people are without food, they will leave their jobs to scavenge for it. Dates, pomegranades, fish and so on are plentiful, so you need not fear you'll ruin your city and have a ghost town.

The game starts slow every map, as you have 10 bricks(Enough for one baker, brickmakers huts don't need bricks), and only one educated person in your city at the start. So you will want to build a school and several brickmakers more to ensure you can keep growing. Before you know it, you've spend several hours building. There is no immigration either, from what I can find. You start the map with 200-300 citizens living in huts, scavenging off the land. After that, children will be your main population growth. This becomes an issue when you want a big military, as military men don't get married - They live in their barracks-tent with two other men.

Some things that are bad, there are a lot of shrines out there that will take a bit to figure out which goes where and which are popular - If you even have room for them. Sometimes your citizens or a merchant may get stuck on a corner, and sometimes you may find your labourers can't figure out which limestone block they want to pull, and manage to fail to move any of them.

In the end, it's still a pretty and somewhat relaxing game where you can spend hours getting your city just right, and then decide to change it up again because you have a new idea. Cosmetic things like gardens, plazas and trees are free to place too, so you can make it look good without having to worry about your workers spending ages watering the plants and not farming.

Worth grabbing it if you like citybuilding, it's good at what it does

An excellent city builder set in the times of ancient egypt. Meet the many needs of your citizens and build massive monuments with the labor camps you construct to show Egypt how prestigious of a leader you are.

Love this game. Wish there would be a part 2, or at least something that's able to get my attention. I always come back to this, and probably will until its seriously outdated. UPlay isn't required, which I hear is another plus :D

I am really into this game. It fits into a very small niche of citybuilders, has mechanics that don't restrict npcs to road access, and puts massive monuments into the perspective of realistic, long-term projects. A huge annoyance in the beginning was figuring out how the hell it works, since the tutorials lay it out but the amount of gods just gets ridiculous.

Pros:
good camera controls allow for essentially any perspective
not a road-connectivity approach to citybuilders
The prestige meter adds a fun side-goal to merely completing a city

cons:
can glitch out and exit without warning, or some computers can't run it at all
the worship demands of the citizens are extremely difficult to meet
frickin priests

Buy it on sale. Don't buy it if you're trying to get achievements, because they'd be easy to get if steam would just fork them over.

Children of the Nile is one of the best games ever invented, believe me. Brilliantly created, it combines complex concepts of strategy and, at the same time, has a great and unforgetable atmosphere that puts you right into the spirit of egypt, and you love the music, the light and the pace of the game as no other game based in egypt did until Children of the Nile. Worth every penny! Worth the time, great game!!

instead of building your badass Pyramid,
Your slaves instead revolt in front of your badass Palace.
And the Po Po won't kill them.

Worst Soviet Egypt ever.

О, великий Нил! Прими эти щедрые дары!

Потрясающе детально сделанный градостроительный симулятор в сеттинге Древнего Египта. На протяжении компании вы опробуйте себя в качестве божественного фараона в пяти разных эпохах, в каждой из них есть по три миссии (проходя одну - переноситесь в следующую эпоху, т.е. три абсолютно разных прохождения). Эта та игра, которая пробуждает интерес к целой цивилизации и заставляет штудировать педивикию, не меньше.

Увековечьте себя на страницах истории и постройте самую великую пирамиду в Египте! 9 анхов из 10 :)

An absolute gem. I pride myself in digging up golden PC titles that receive little fanfare, and this game is surely one of those. As an ancient Egyptian simulation, this game is a unique city-simulation concept with excellent execution and historical accuracy. The mechanics are distinct, with the three "Seasons" revolving entirely upon the flooding of the Nile. The only currency is the only one that truly mattered in the ancient world; food.

Like Ancient Egypt, religion plays a key role in the game, with a rich and diverse pantheon of true-to-life Egyptian Gods and Goddesses to be honoured by Temples and Shrines. Every person in your settlement is represented in the game and has unique needs, most notably religious needs. Soldiers, shop-keepers, peasants and elites all demand an opportunity to pray to the Gods and Goddesses which best represent their needs, while everyone will want to worship Amun, Osiris and Hathor; the Universal deities whose festivals were paramount to most Egyptian cultures.

Of course, you will be building an awful lot of pyramids, obelisks and steles to immortalize yourself, mighty Pharaoh, and cement the legacy of your lineage. Throw in a flavourful soundtrack and a diverse array of scenarios and missions and you have the best $2 I have ever spent on steam. I must buy for any city-building lover, Egyptophile or classic game collector.

Предрелизный обзор
CotN is a beautiful city-building game with a slight twist -- instead of "walkers" who go out and follow roads around town to distrubute their wares, most of your people take time out to run to the market when they need things (you can follow the individuals out, going through their day, and it's kind of entertaining in itself). The game itself is pretty laid back and peaceful feeling, and the music is quite nice, too. My one complaint would be that sometimes, when you select a person roaming around town, they say something utterly anachronistic and stupid, and I find that detracts from the overall mood of the game. Turn that off, and you're golden.

Sadly this is the last great city builder, as far as I know.
And not great just as a great city but also a great game!

Runs well on Windows 7.

This is an old game and I played it when it first came out. You play in ancient Egypt as a Pharaoh leading his/her people to economic and military supremacy. If you can keep your people well feed, healthy and happy you will be successful. There are some glitches in the game I have had a few problems but nothing serious just annoying. There have been a couple of additions such as the brickyard which are helpful and some new decorations since I first played it.

If you enjoy city building you might want to try this one. You can also do some retexturing of buildings, plazas, costumes. I enjoy doing that and perking up the city a little bit. The game can be played at various speeds to suit your preferences.

This is a pretty fun game once you figure out the mechanics. Not quite like its predecessors Caesar/Pharaoh/Zeus/Emperor.

Pros: 3D world which can allow for panoramic views, more interaction with the surrounding world, more focus on city building and managing rather than satisfying objectives quickly, resolution to challenges in the city are discovered by you rather than told how to fix those problems from advisors (for those who like something more engaging), all missions are treated nearly like a sandbox. Pretty much, you can build 100 pyramids if the map can hold it.

Cons: Sometimes the game can crash unexpectedly, not many missions in general campaign, not much historical/mythological context is given with missions as in the predecessors (found them to be enlightening and neat).

A nice relaxed RTS but with the added incentive of needing to build tombs before each ruler dies.

Really like this game. The graphics are great and it's very easy to understand and work. It's a very one of a kind sort of game where money isn't the currency. Only thing that bothered me was that the game lags really bad when autosaving and sometimes crashes.
