About This Game

Notes from the developer:


- This is not a puzzle game, in Citystate there is no right combination to build a successful Nation. This is a sandbox, old school style in which most building tools are unlocked at start. There are no guided mandatory steps apart from a short independent tutorial.
- There is very little micro management to do in Citystate, no public facilities to build or bus lines to organize. This game is about macro management and economics, seeing the big picture and experimenting with political ideologies.
- The game mechanics are based on today’s world economy. Policies’ effects try to mimic nations of the modern world and their intrinsic differences. Citystate is often politically incorrect and possibly biased.
- The game is specifically designed for mature audiences.
