* Planet fields can have multiple fossils & ore at the same time
* New user interface for field info, messages, time and research

We have released a new demo that comes with many of the new features we have added to the early access version recently.

The most important update is that Tuto has been completely reworked and now comes with more buildings, new goals and a much better story presentation.

In addition we have unlocked the Free Play mode on Tuto so demo testers can play without time and growth limitations. In exchange we have taken the Joma mission ;-).

It would be really great if you could spread the word and let others know about the Imagine Earth Demo.

Jens & Martin

PS: The Early Access version has also been updated with these changes.

Imagine Earth’s demo reminded me of Project Godus, which is a bit like having a face that reminds me of the kid who used to bully me at school and showed up a decade and a half later in the toilets of a dingy nightclub, horribly drunk and tearfully apologetic. In both situations, the unintended reminder inspires a mixture of anger and pity that I’m choosing to call ‘angety’. Initially, Imagine Earth was a catalyst for ‘angety’. I played on though, clicking and collecting resources through the tutorial, and soon enough I was enjoying myself. The playfields are smaller than those in Godus and rather than expanding simply for the sake of it, Imagine Earth’s colonies must be balanced and controlled. Take a look, or try the demo now.
