Om detta spel

Stadsbyggarspelet Children of the Nile™ är en riktig pärla som saknar motstycke i fråga om såväl storlek som detaljrikedom.

Som farao leder du ditt folk genom tusentals år i historien från enkla jägare/samlare till en odödlig civilisation. Om du är en bra ledare kan du bygga häpnadsväckande pyramider, utforska en uråldrig värld och kriga mot dina fiender.

Alla invånarna i staden är helt utvecklade, levande människor som ingår i familjer och hushåll med olika behov. Från präster till underhållare, skriftlärda till arbetare, även de kungliga – alla behöver mat, och det är bara början! Varenda stenblock som släpas till din pyramid måste dras av människor som ber till gudarna i tempel som du väljer. Under din ledning kan lokala ekonomier frodas och växa när allt från flätade vasskorgar till smycken i guld skapas, köps och används av stadens invånare.

För att uppnå odödlighet måste en farao även se utanför stadens gränser och sätta sitt avtryck på världen. Undersök och öppna för handel med grannländerna så får du chans att bygga minnesverk som för evigt vittnar om din storhetstid. I takt med att din status ökar får du även allt lättare att locka till dig människor som kan stötta dig i dina ambitiösa åtaganden och bygga storslagna städer.

Hur vill du att eftervärlden ska minnas din storhetstid?

NOTE: Looking for the Caesar series, what about Zeus? gog.com ->> http://www.gog.com/game/caesar_3 has it ! :D:D

http://www.gog.com/support/website_help/what_is_gog_com gog.com is basically a digital distribution site just like Steam that sells classic games deemed "the best games ever made" and they are DRM free.

Children of the Nile: Enhanced Edition striked me fairly well, it's a city builder set and centered around ancient Egypt. There were three main reasons why I like this game, 1) the setting is rarely covered, most city builders are focused more on modern architecture. 2) The attention to detail and novel feature of Children of the Nile, and that's it has a very unique economic system -- a food based economic system. Talk about realism, you don't get close to re-living the Egyptian society than paying your government workers food. Children of the Nile also has a strong class system, also representing ancient Egypts strong class society, relying on every member to be in his/her place from peasant, middle class, and noble. How you gain and manage each of these classes is unique, but the game ensures that the player knows that in order to manage more peasants/farmers, you need plenty of nobles. Lastly, 3) the quality of 2006 game is very impressive. Plenty of resolution support and a lot of graphics and audio options, including some for the interface and gameplay. I haven't experienced any crashes or bugs either. The content advertised through the trailer, screenshot, and Steam product store is as advertised, and the voice acting and audio description before a mission is top notch. The graphics and attention to certain Egyptian architectural structures is very pleasing. The music only adds to the immersion and there's plenty of resources and freedom to build your city uniquely to your liking. Decorations are free so you can start planning the layout of your city without much hassle or delay. There's even in-game info, help menu that will explain what the building does and who works it if you are new. There's plenty of missions and content for the price, therefore, it very well worth base price. The developers know it's a great deal too because the game didn't get a price cut during the holiday sale. Even if you played SimCity[4], Tropico, Grand Ages Rome, Anno 2070, Dawn of Discovery, Stronghold, Zeus, Caesar or any other city builder, you'll still get a kick out of this game. It's amazing, it feels original and is very entertaining. Children of the Nile will be perfect for you especially if you are looking for a city builder set in an archaic setting of a former time. Take a look at other reviews as well, lots of other players already have phenominal amounts of hours racked.

That sums up my review, if a developer reads this, I hope you guys will be able to bring the Caesar games to Steam, and be able to finish Medieval Mayor with enough support if the series sells well on Steam. Best of luck, your games are amazing, thank you for creating such memorable gems. You guys will always hold the place of the best city builders in the genre.

Thanks for reading, if you think you might like this game pick it up -- support these developers, it's way better than the sorry rip-off excuse early access/DLC scams nowadays..

Great city builder - lots of depth to this one. Building epic pyramids is AWESOME. A bit wonky on Windows 10 (slight flickering in the UI for some reason), but overall good performance wise.

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 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.

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.
