Children of the Nile™ is a unique gem of a city-building game, unparalleled in both grandeur and attention to detail.

As Pharaoh you will guide your people through thousands of years of history: from simple hunter-gatherers to the creation of an immortal civilization. Guide your people well and you will build breathtaking pyramids, explore the ancient world and wage war against your enemies.

Every inhabitant of your city is a fully developed, living person – part of an individual family and household with wants and needs. From priests to entertainers, scribes to laborers, even the royal family… everyone will need to eat and that’s just the beginning. Every block of stone that is hauled to your pyramid will be pulled by people who pray to the gods in temples of your choosing. Under your supervision, local economies will thrive as goods from reed baskets to gold jewelry will be created, purchased and enjoyed by the inhabitants of your city.

To achieve immortality a Pharaoh must look outside his city’s borders and make an impact on the world. Explore and open trade with foreign neighbors and you will have reason to build commemorative wonders that will tell the tale of your dynasty for all time. As your prestige rises so too will your ability to draw more people to your ambitious endeavors and build cities that are truly epic.

How will your dynasty be remembered?

Children of the Nile: Enhanced Edition reviews and comments

Translated by

The Game is actually relatively easy for a Build-up Game (especially if it compares to the old "Pharaoh" Of Sierra), but I still like to play it. But You can decorate your City so beautifully ... Would like to have even more options ... It's a pity that there are no Mods in the Workshop. For such easy Building Fun in between, the Game is good to use-especially when you stand on the Egyptian Theme.

A single word for this game: I played 28 minutes of sheer horror Visual because of the French translation that is just horrible! not a Word without a spelling error, and the ponpon returns to the display window blocked 1024 * 768 under window 10, impossible to change. Pretty outdated graphics for 2008, even the Pharaoh series where Zeus, the master of Olympus surpasses this soulless game. to be avoided. --------------------------------------------------------2/10-------------------------------------------------------------------

This game is superb. You have to know the food, the bricks, the statues, the limestone,... and social services (schools, health, justice,...) I think there are a lot of professions. All this makes the game very interesting even when you know it very well and that it is mastered. Beware, there are villagers on the map but there will never be immigration, only emigration. To increase the population, we have to wait for demographic growth. The graphics are excellent. I highly recommend it to those who love antiquity, city-builders.

This game is beautiful. It is not very recent but the images are still very beautiful and thanks to the performance of recent computers, one can thus increase the details without having a game that paddles... On the concept side of the game, I love it too. At the beginning, one can be impressed by the number of resources available but in the end, one gets used especially that their operation is quite similar. Unlike other city-builders, the characters are not anonymous: they have a name, evolve in time (child then adult) and in their profession (a villager can become a farmer then a craftsman, or then a merchant of luxury then noble). Here, we choose the location of the buildings but they are not built immediately: it is necessary to wait either that a resident comes to settle there (farmer, servant, merchants) or that a Mason brings the required bricks and then the building. I find that very well. In addition, we can build wonders: pyramid (several sizes are proposed), statues,... even the Grand lighthouse and the library in the extension... I recommend this game to all those who love city-buiders (other than contemporary), which are rare nowadays
