What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a small indie studio we need all the feedback we can get. Adding new features and balancing the game dynamics is a quite complex task within the global simulation of our planets. Additionally the income of early access helps us to stay independent. We want to take the time to evolve this game into a little sensation. Something that has never been played this way before. The first global planetary colonization and climate survival game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Belief it or not, Imagine Earth is in Early Access development since May 2014. But since then we had substantial feature updates almost every month, constant graphic improvements and instant bug fixes. We plan to release Imagine Earth in Q4 2019.

Please note that we are just two guys in the core team and a complex planet simulation like this takes time to turn out really well. We're most thankful for almost 30.000 supporters who made this long-term development sustainable and independent over all the years.”

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

“Currently there are four big things to do:
- Add more interaction with other (AI) colonies: taking over, sabotage, cooperation
- Improve trading system and authentic AI behavoir and establishing diplomacy.
- Make the general gameplay more diverse.
- Iterate until the whole thing is perfect ;-)”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We'd call it a progress of 90-95% . Please read the feature list in the description below.”

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

“Yes, the release price will be 29.99 $”

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

“We need your thoughts, ideas and direct feedback on what you experience during gameplay. To keep you updated about the actual development process we are writing a friday report every week and there's a major update release once a month. The complex interconnections between the buildings are a hell of a balancing job on which your opinion is highly appreciated. Name the features you would be most excited about and let's make this thing a unique experience together.”

“Imagine Earth is a refreshingly streamlined and charming apporach to civilization sims - and one with plenty of room to grow as it wades through Early Access.”
GameZone

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.

Profits 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.

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.

Competition 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.
