What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Civatlas is entering Early Access to involve the community in the development process. We believe that gathering feedback and suggestions from players will help refine the game's mechanics, improve its content, and guide its direction. This collaboration will ensure that the final product is polished and meets the expectations of our community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate that Civatlas will remain in Early Access for approximately 1 to 2 years. This timeframe allows us to gather meaningful feedback from players and make necessary improvements to the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The early access period will update to game to make it feature complete. This includes introducing mod support, expanding content into City and Capital progression eras, additional cultures, new biomes for maps, trade and commerce systems, and of course all the new buildings. We also aim to enhance the game's visual and audio components, further refine its user interface, and optimize performance. While we have a vision for the game's overall scope, we will be responsive to community feedback as we make these improvements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of Civatlas already offers a rich and engaging gameplay experience, with several cultures, a unique art style, and an innovative grid-making plot system. Players can freely build their cities on procedurally generated maps, build from a Medieval Hamlet up to a Renaissance Town, and experiment with the game's social purposes tied to the progression system.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We currently have no plans to change the game's pricing after Early Access. However, we do intend to participate in Steam sales and other marketing opportunities, offering discounts to attract new players to the Civatlas community.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Feedback is a fact! We plan to actively engage with the Civatlas community through Steam forums and on our Discord. By encouraging players to share their feedback, suggestions, and experiences, we can gain valuable insights that will help us shape the game's future. This collaborative process is crucial to achieving our vision of delivering the best possible city-building experience.”

About This Game

What to expect...

The Early Access version of Civatlas has core gameplay mechanics that we plan to expand upon. Included in the game:

Open Your Atlas

Map nerds, rejoice! Civatlas is a game inspired by those iconic lithographic bird’s eye view maps of the Renaissance era created by legendary cartographers including John Speed, Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg.

Generate a Vast Landscape

Procedural continental landscapes are formed by plate tectonics. Select and build upon 16km^2 map tiles.

Select a Culture

Your Culture choice will affect your World’s name with geographic toponyms and affect the names of your Civvies, based upon the primary language of the Culture selected. This feature will be expanded with more global cultures, biomes and architectural styles!

Plot Your Grid

From humble medieval hamlets to bustling Renaissance cities. Unique ‘Plot’ mechanics parcel your landscape in any way desired. Assign these plots a purpose to discover more upgrades and decorations that lead to unique creations. Civatlas is a game about the freedom to build without the pressures to survive. Escape into a thriving world of your own creation!

Produce Resources

Over 100 resources of various types, from mud to money! Resources are essential for construction and Civvie happiness.

Progression Tree

Grow from a humble hamlet into a thriving Town. Choose the progression path along purposeful branches: Labor, Law, Faith, Arts and Trade. Uncover architectural history from the early Middle Ages through the early Modern era!

New features coming in Early Access and beyond!

Every Plot Tells a Story

Civvies will bring your maps to life as they move about their Boros and complete their daily tasks. Follow the different narratives of your plots as Civvies move in, live, pass on, give birth, learn, and grow through the seven ages of man, as defined by Shakespeare, and not necessarily in that order.

Connections Matter

Neighbouring plots will provide bonuses such as production rates or happiness for your Civvies, depending on building type or plot purpose.

Multiple Cities

Create a new Atlas and build on other tiles of your generated World. Establish trade routes and chart the growth of your new nation-state!

Historical Expansion

Expand the cultural content across space and time. From feudal Japan to ancient Rome, we plan to add even more cultures, biomes and architectural styles.


Hark, travellers and scholars of antiquity! Art thou weary of battling and bloodshed in thy games, and yearn for a tranquil and intellectual pursuit? Then lo, I present to thee Civatlas, a most wondrous simulation game set in the Renaissance and Medieval times.

In Civatlas, thou shalt engage in the art of governance and management, building and nurturing thy very own city-state. And what better way to showcase thy city than by creating beautiful and intricate maps to be treasured for all eternity in thy personal Atlas?

Methinks this game shall appeal to those who seek a challenge of the mind, a mastery of resource management, and a thirst for knowledge of the workings of the world. Without the taint of competitive combat, thou mayest build and prosper at thine own pace, crafting a world that is uniquely thine.

So why delay? Engage thy mind, sharpen thy skills, and immerse thyself in the world of Civatlas. The ultimate journey of intellectual and creative fulfillment awaits thee.
