Global real-time civilization sim, Imagine Earth leaves Early Access for full release onto PC today

From Press Release:

25th May, Berlin, Germany – Indie game studio Serious Bros. today released the final version of their game Imagine Earth, complete with a whopping great launch update, on PC, along with a new trailer to celebrate the release. An Xbox One version will follow soon.

In Imagine Earth, players must protect and nurture a fledgling space colony while wrestling against the looming threat of climate change. Supply resources and energy, establish trade, research new technologies, form alliances and wage economic warfare in a real-time battle for sustainable survival.

The game entered Early Access in May 2014, and has been growing ever since, with updates coming approximately once a month. The final launch update will be one of the biggest to date, with additions including the ‘World Congress’ in freeplay and endless mode – a democratic allegiance containing every faction on the planet, brought together by the threat of a climate crisis and environmental collapse.


  • Carbon footprint: Earth has been destroyed by ecological collapse – will your new home go the same way? Keep your worldwide emissions to a minimum, or else suffer rising sea levels, freak weather events, and more.

  • Boldly Go: Imagine Earth is a real-time planet simulation and a build up strategy game. Your job as a space colony manager is to explore distant planets, build up profitable colonies, and trade resources into space.

  • Many ways to play: A multi-planet story campaign, ‘competition’ mode with five enemy factions, ‘endless’ mode with endless procedurally generated challenges, and a Planet Editor with custom building and terraforming.

  • Hold the line: Use tower defence mechanics to protect your colony from invading aliens, marauding space pirates, and swarms of locusts.

  • Hostile takeover: Form alliances with other colonies and intergalactic traders, trade shares or wage crafty economic warfare to secure total financial dominance for your planet.

‘I’m sure it’s obvious, but Imagine Earth is a work of great passion,’ says developer Jens Isensee. ‘Not just our passion for game development, but our passion for environmental protection. We hope that love, as well as the effort we’ve put in over the years, shines through for players.’
