Our vision

We love tech, strategy games, History, Archeology and cities.
Of course, we dream, as you do, with a gorgeous strategy city simulator that let the player to develop its city along the ages in a credible and immersive way.

We have chosen to start at the origin of cities, in the late Neolithic era. It was logic, and it is also highly suitable for the project; new eras introduce new gameplay and game features over what existed before. Just as real life.

We are developing our own custom render technology for this game because this allows us to render what we envision: Thousands of items on the screen at the same time with nice fps, offering the player breathtaking images of their cities. Both, gameplay and detail are important to us.

We are presenting you our first game. And depending to a great extent on the budget, we intend to include late Neolithic and Bronze age in the final release.

We expect Ancient Cities to become a powerful platform for next developments, moving us more and more into the realms of History, exploring different places and ages around the world: Greece, Rome or Middle Ages...

For this to become a reality we need your support on this first project.

We know you will love this as much as we do.

The game will be available when its ready.

We also have a website: website[ancient-cities.com]

FAQ
  • Will there be any enemies or combat?
    Yes, in the first release there will be combat in the form of raids, but it will be optional.

  • Can I evolve my city from Neolithic, to Rome, Middle Ages or beyond or can I play with Tenochtitlan?
    Not in the first release.
    First release will include Neolithic, and maybe Bronze Age to some extent. This dependes on development times.
    If the first release does well, we will continue to expand the game step by step.

  • What will be the first expansion?
    None if we don't finish Neolithic first. So we are focusing where we are now.

  • Is multiplayer planned?
    There is not multiplayer planned.
    We are a small team and we want to be sure we can deliver.

  • Will there be mod support for the game?
    Still to be decided but probably not for the first release.
    Again, we want to be sure we can deliver.

  • Will there be Linux or Mac version?
    Only Windows version is planned at this moment.
    Again, we want to be sure we can deliver.

  • There will be a public Alpha, Beta, Early Access, kickstarter or Patreon?
    Still to be decided.

  • What will be the price?
    Still to be decided.
    It will depend on final content.

  • Is this another "NMS"?
    We are a small team with a big project, but we know we can do it, and do it right, if we move step by step.
    This is what we are doing from the beginning of the project, and this is what we plan to do from now.
    No rush ;)
