What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Prosperity is a very ambitious game in terms of mechanics. In fact, it's easy to go overboard with complexity, because we are the types of people who love large complex games with lots of depth and layers upon layers of interactions and interdependence. Therefore, it is even more important to us that we get a variety of feedback from different folks with different backgrounds to point out that something is confusing, or something is tedious. Too often we are so deep in designing a mechanism just right that we forget the bigger picture, and that's where you, the Early Access players, come in to smack some sense into us.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan on releasing the game when it meets our standards for a full game. That means all of the upgrades are implemented and tested, the main story-line is scripted, all the core mechanics are implemented and balanced (although we expect to need to make tweaks down the line).”

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

“The full version will include the conclusion of the storylines, more cohesive and complete upgrades, less bugs, and in general a more enjoyable experience. We plan on adding some new mechanics to better run the city, social policies to help execute the player's strategy, and new automation capabilities to help with management. Throughout early access we expect to continue updating the game, which means there's always a chance that an older save file could become incompatible. In the full version, we will be doing extensive testing to make sure save files are properly migrated as the game updates.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is playable right now. Players can progress from a camp to a city using everything that is implemented in the game. However, since this is early access, a number of impediments, buffs, events, and content are not yet implemented, leading to a play time that is quite a bit shorter than one would expect from an incremental game. Balancing the game will take time.”

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

“No plans on changing the price after Early Access. However, we may sell expansions and DLCs further down the line.”

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

How is this different from the web game?

Prosperity started off as a text based web game that I developed in 2014. Over time, the web version of the game diverged a great deal from my original vision for the game. Many of the things I wanted to do became unrealistic due to the limitations of the game's architecture and planning.

As a result, the PC version available via Steam is very different but keeps many of the same core concepts. Additional details can be found at our subreddit https://www.reddit.com/r/ProsperityGame/comments/8pgita/difference_between_steam_version_and_web_version/

About This Game

Prosperity is a city-building resource management game. Unlock more buildings, jobs, technology, and game mechanics as you progress. Use your resources wisely, strike balance between investing and conserving. Make and maintain relationships with other towns and factions to gain access to rare resources.

Your effectiveness as a ruler is measured by a number of factors, and the further you progress in the game, the more factors you will have to consider. Which policies will you enact to reduce the amount of management needed from your part? How will you deal with crime, famine, and natural disasters?

Put your workers to work in different buildings which grow, produce, or refine materials. Over time you'll get a sense of which resources are renewable and which are not. Being able to balance progress and growing demand with the availability of resources will be crucial to the sustainability of your town.

Upgrade your buildings, learn new techs, find new trading allies, improve your standard of living, and bring Prosperity to your city.
