Girls’ civilization is an open-world, real-time strategy game about a robot that is destined to fulfill a mission. . . problem being, she hasn’t a clue what that mission is!

Gameplay
Assemble and train troops and lay siege to your enemies. By destroying enemies, you’ll gain a variety of equipment and raw resources. Battles are fought in real time, much like an real time strategy game; you may route your army using an overhead view (or sit back, and enjoy the show!) Alternatively, you may fight side-by-side with your comrades. Soldiers cost money — not only do you need to train and replace your (wo)men, but you’ll have to insure that you’re earning enough to pay them every day. Thankfully, earning money and replacing bodies can both be automated when you conquer cities. However, taking (and keeping) a city is no easy task; when a city’s at stake, hundreds, if not thousands of lives are on the line!

Story
Iwinya has been remanufactured by Krosa, her own captain to fulfill a “top-priority” mission. They are “Ancients”, or military robots — they last saw the light of day seven hundred years ago, during the Anti AI War. When Krosa was remanufactured, she could only gather three words regarding the mission; all she knows are “destroy”, “hemisphere”, and “support forces”. Iwinya has no choice but to mingle with humans to unravel her mission. The world she knew was no more; apparently, all that’s left of the Anti AI War are scattered Ancients, which have been remanufactured across four nations. Iwinya and Krosa will have to make friends with the four nations, as they collect their mechanical comrades and discover why they have been called upon.

Visuals
The titlescreen is an ugly mess. Though I enjoy interactive titles, the way the camera shifts (based on your cursor) doesn’t work; chances are, you’ll wind up with a fancy picture of the floor. The tutorial regarding the “error box” on the bottom-right of the screen not only looks atrocious (and wildly unprofessional), but it says something about the functionality of the game (and not a good something.) From “Options”, you may adjust audio, display, gameplay, graphical, and language preferences. The “Options” menu need to be streamlined, and more user-friendly for players that aren’t familiar with computer hardware. The English translation is terrible, and there’s lots of dialogue.

Verdict
Wait for updates and a strong sale. Provided (A) this game is not crashing, and (B) you are not RNG screwed and (C) you actually know what to do, Girls’ civilization is actually a lot of fun. This game is a buggy mess, and it looks like an asset-flip fest — however, it has its merits. Say what you will about the stock waifus, but the visuals work (as long as you don’t “tech up”). It’s fun raising armies, and I loved watching bodies ragdoll as they were trampled (or exploded!) You’re free to do with the camera as you please, allowing you to soak in each battle. Girls’ civilization is, to be frank, not great — but if you’re willing to look past its blemishes, I think you’d understand why I struggled to put the game down.
