Imagine Earth is a futuristic world simulation in which it is your job as a colony manager is to explore and populate various undiscovered planets.

Raise great cities and supply the needs of your growing population by building power plants, farms and factories. The challenge is to deal with the whole planetary ecosystem and its natural limitations in fossile resources and environmental resilience. Do research for renewable energy sources and develop sustainable production lines to avoid overgrowth and climate collapse of your new homeworlds. Will it end up in tremendous desolation or can you lead your colony into wealth and prosperity?

“Your decisions will most likely lead into states where you have to rethink your whole way of playing!” said Jens Isensee.

“Exploring the balance between growth and sustainability is the key to success in this game,” said Martin Wahnschaffe. “as it is the final challenge for every civilization.”


Climate change is apparently the most underestimated thread in the history of computer games. The idea behind Imagine Earth was to put this thrilling background into a motivating gameflow. This is turning it into a kind of experimental world simulation with a mildly ironic story setting. The game wants to offer the biggest possible freedom of choice to the player so he can develop his own development strategies.

After failing to raise enough money through its indiegogo crowd funding campaign, Imagine Earth: Planetary Colonization is now available through Steam Early Access for $24.99.
