What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access provides an opportunity for players to actively participate in the game development process. This is particularly important because of the long and fascinating single player campaign in which we tell the story of Ancient Egypt. The time thus gained will allow us to realize all the ideas and create a final product that will meet the expectations of the players who have supported us throughout the whole production process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early access will take a maximum of one year. We want to make sure that all of the game's mechanics are working properly, which in the case of economy game is a long process, not to mention writing a script, translating texts, searching for source materials and creating rich and detailed game content. We do not take shortcuts, so the game requires additional production time. The current version of the game includes four initial missions with a lot of interesting gameplay. Additional mechanics will appear as the game production progresses.”

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

“First of all, the full version will include the remainder of the single player campaign consisting of several dozen missions, which means also:

  • a few monuments, together with their construction stages
  • several dozen different buildings, both production, administrative and various statues, plazas and other ornamental elements
  • several types of military units
  • several different events affecting the game
  • a clear distinction between social strata and their impact on gameplay
  • encyclopedia of the game concerning ancient egypt

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game in its current version is fully playable. At the moment, there are four missions available, which are an introduction to the main campaign that is currently in production.

It is possible to build a settlement from the scratch, production of wares and food, random events affecting the gameplay are available. Basic diplomacy and the general situation on the map of the region are also available, so the game offers a long gameplay right from the beginning.

The free version that is Prologue includes the first mission available in early access. Additional mechanics as well as its changes, patches, balance adjustments, interface updates will be added to the game as regular updates.”

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

“The price of the game at the early release will be lower than the full version, which is a form of our thanks to all those who are ready to support the project at an early stage of development, as well as a fair reflection of the available content and development of the game.”

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

“Every single feedback counts for us. On the forum, discussions on various functions in the game have been going on for a long time, resulting in changes in the gameplay mechanics. All bigger and smaller changes were described in devblogs, which could be followed from the beginning of the game on Steam. This game is created for you, so your feedback is most important and has a real impact on the final product.”

About This Game

Builders of Egypt is an economic type of city-building taking place in the valley of the Nile. The story starts in a little-known protodynastic period in which you will be able to observe the birth of the Old Egypt and finished with the death of Cleopatra VII.

The most important aspect is the skillful management of urban planning by shaping the grid of streets, placing buildings and their mutual relation. Well-designed city will greatly improve economic efficiency which may convert into city income.

Diplomacy and politics:
The governor will face very difficult choices to be made in a constantly changing political environment. Costly expeditions, Pharaoh and other cities requests, military threat and a mixture of different cultures will be a commonplace. A series of wrong choices can cost the loss of trading partners and low interest in the city by settlers. Moreover, the total lack of obedience to the rulers may end up with a civil war.

Deity will be able to interfere with daily life but it will be done implicitly. The main aspect of religion will be satisfying the need for access to the places of worship, providing supplies for temples or organizing festivals. Neglecting this sphere may result in a dangerous social unrest on a par with e.g. famine.

Trade is the most important element in royal treasury. Without it, it is very difficult for economic stability built solely on taxes. Therefore, in the interest of the player, producing goods for export at prices that will be able to change dynamically depending on the geopolitical situation, will be required.

What would the real Ancient Egypt be without its monumental sacred architecture? There are mastabas, obelisks, Karnak among others, the Ramesseum and of course the pyramids that are waiting to be built. You will be able to observe the slow process of construction. A team of carpenters, masons, architects and ordinary workers will rise building step by step. It will not be just a graphic feature - the building process is costly and will have an impact on the finances or the public mood.

Egypt's history is full of clashes of emerging and failing empires. You will have the responsibility of defending cities from foreign military attacks, making plans to attack and joining your forces on Pharaoh's own call.
