About

The world’s pollution is threatening all life on Earth. Employed by a Billionaire, and chosen for your high intelligence and psychopathic tendencies, it’s up to you to save the world by any means necessary. On surface Depopulation is a military strategy game glorifying casualties, but underneath is a deeply emotional, philosophical roller coaster, that will help you understand our unbreakable connection with the environment. It hopes to portray the terrible cost of ignoring that connection. Use invasions, hunger, disease, nukes, amplifying natural disasters and civil wars to dramatically cull the most adaptable and clever animal on the planet. Or try a peaceful but harder approach. Use clever politics, convince countries to join you, build environmental wonders, construct environmental infrastructure and reduce the birth-rate to create a sustainable future. Either way, the only thing that matters is the survival of Earth’s environment, for which even billions lives is a small price to pay. Free WebAssembly version! Play in your Browser Now! (Might need the latest Chrome or Firefox) https://mcswan.itch.io/depopulation Pros Has a free lower quality Browser version - check it out and see if you like it. Instant end turns, makes the game play very fast for a turn based game Easy to play Hard to master. Will help you understand the reality you live in. Helps you understand "the fittest survive" - strictly meaning, the ones that "fit" into their environment survive. The strongest do not survive. The strong consume all their resources until there gone and then perish. Cons Is fairly short, but highly re-playable. Has a free version with most of the content, so is it worth buying? Yes! Especially if you want to support the author. This version has over 20 aweswan songs (web version only has 2), much much higher resolution graphics and will have larger "PC only" assets that are too big to put in a web version. It's seriously, only $5 US so why not? Web version has no save game.
