For 25 years we've all been building empires to stand the test of time. Beginning on Amiga and PC in 1991, it's hard to believe we'd ever see the likes of this epic turn based 4X civ building game on anything less than 16 bits and at least a few hundred kilobytes of RAM. Teased early last year, the game has had a significant amount of work done since the early screenshots. Developer Fabian Hertel has released a fully playable demo for us all to enjoy and also help test by reporting bugs here.

Wow - very nice. Easily one of the best games of all time. I wonder how Civ would look like on a CPC...

Looks neat from a technical viewpoint.
  Friend of mine was obsessed with is on Amiga.  Gave me a copy of it but to be honest I found it depressingly dull.  Still, I know plenty folks like this sort of thing so yay for them. :P
Favorite CPC games: SwitchBlade, Stryker in the Crypts of Trogan, Turrican II, UN Squadron, Oh Mummy
