Enter the vast lands of Communia, the magical planet that goes on forever. Or at least it looks that way. Several hundred colonies later people still have reported absolutely no end in sight and no familiar sights whatsoever. Goes without saying that it's an easy job to find an hitherto uninhabited place and claim it as your own. So take command of a pair of villagers, help them build and grow and expand your village...until it turns into a town, a duchy, a kingdom. When that becomes unsatisfactory, turn your kingdom into an empire, conquer your smaller neighbors, trade with your bigger neighbors, raid and explore, send heroes on missions and grow, grow, grow!So what is this?
Much like the title says, the game has its roots in the "idle" genre and indeed it was such when it first started out. But it has evolved into so much more that, in the current incarnation, I can proudly say it's a full-fledged civilization builder.
Idle Civilization offers depth and complexity that most idle games do not. Yes, you will see big numbers, yes, you will only go upwards and rarely downward, yes you will have a prestige system and other classic elements, but you will have so much more to manage and entertain yourself with than in your average game in the genre.Alright, so what should we look forward to?
- over 30 buildings
- over 60 researches
- 6 deities to worship with unique powers
- a randomized map full of towns and villages to conquer on each colony
- ruins to explore in search of ancient magical fragments
- mighty heroes to send on epic adventures to gain loot and glory
- unique wonders of the world
- diplomacy and cultural events
- random events
- lots of achievements
- a compelling colony system
- offline progress
- and more... (there's always more and more)So what this game isn't
This game isn't something like Sid Meier's Civilization. This is a management game where you oversee your civilization from various panels and buttons and sliders and commands. Well I guess you can see that from the screenshots and videos but it doesn't hurt to state it again.And who are you?
I'm a fledgling developer from Romania, working on this project mostly alone (with help from a dear writer friend for the lore, game newspaper and quest texts/direction) and hoping to bring you something that you will enjoy for hours upon hours. Others have!Wait, others have already enjoyed this?
Yes, I've been working on this game since early 2015 and the game started out as a browser game and it's currently enjoyed over 500,000 plays. You can still play it on Kongregate but the Steam version will have features, wonders, areas and generally content that the web version will not have going forward. I feel the game has matured enough so that it can be considered a full (albeit small) indie game that deserves a PC release. If you feel the same way, please vote for it. If you don't like it, please let me know what exactly you would like to see or what bothers you.

Early Access Review Unfortunately no Updates have been for almost a Year, the Developer has not started the Game on Steam since Mid-2016. The Game might need a lot of Updates, but we'll never get them as it seems.

Early Access Review Early Access Review: Is unfortunately very Reminiscent of Adventurer Capitalist, Numbers that run upwards without having to do anything about it. Nice Music and the System behind it is nice but not worth a Buy at the moment, hope there's still a lot to come, Minigames or the like to Employment. But see for yourself what to do in the first 20 Minutes. https://youtu.be/jQo5DsKQA2s

Early Access Review Hi, this Game is a nice Side occupation. The Graphics, Music and Balancing are still expandable, but the GamekConcept convinces for a Casual Idle Game. €5 it's defenitive Value despite Early Acess. What I particularly like is that even after 15 Hours there are still things at play that can be achieved to expand your small Kingdom. Once Again, here'S past the price/reading ratio. (There are Full-price Titles from major Publishers that are complete within 10 Hours) For people who want to have High Quality Graphen-/images, the Game is definitely nothing. You feel a little transported back to the 90s (-; You can see that the Focus has been on mechanics. This has been a really good success. A bit wild, however, sometimes the Mouseover Effects seem and the PHP could become even more clear. The Music Approach is very good. Unfortunately, the Title is far too short and the Endless Loop of such a short Piece of music leads to the Sound being switched off after Max 10 min. Something should be done about this as a matter of urgency. But it is also Early Acess because of this "no Problem at all" ^^---Dear Developer thanks for this lovly small Game. I enjoy to see my kingdom developing ^ ^ and hope for some good future polishing. Keep up your good work! ---Buy it if you like games with a good idea in mind. It is worth 5 Bucks ^ ^ Graphic/GUI---> 4/10 Gameplay--> 6/10 Gamefun/idea--> 8/10 Longtime Motivation--> 8/10 Music-> 5/10 Lg
