    Citystate is a city-builder and a political sandbox in which you plan, build and rule a micro nation from scratch. A simulator made to challenge your political views and your governing skills no matter where you are on the political spectrum. Every decision has multiple impacts on multiple time scales, your State will progressively change according to your choices and skills. In Citystate there is no rule, no limit, no mandatory first steps, no tech tree, not any boundary to the core gameplay. Only the most pragmatic but complex economic simulator to experiment with and in complete freedom.

    This game looks like the sort of strategy game i'd pick up in a dodgy shop 15 years ago (this is how i got caesar, pharaoh, tropico 1, mafia and sacrifice among many others) going off nothing more then a few screenshots and a blurb at the back describing the premise....

    Therefore it looks utterly amazing and is now my most anticipated city builder of 2018.

    Sim City 3000 was cool game and I always wanted to play with more options than what increasingly PC Maxis gave me; if they will allow Commissar's Orthodox Communist Monarchy Utopia to be build I am all sold Comrades and Trannies.

    I find it doubtful. You just can’t have a libertarian approach in a city-building game, since libertarians oppose any central city planing. If the game is to be anything more than min-maxing sliders and indirect governing through edicts, you must go full central planing, where you pick where to put police stations, how dense should be the architecture, what kind of industry you want etc.

    I always found simcity lacking something because when you built a city and watched it grow.... then what? This might be bretty gud if done right, because when you will build a city you will have to maintain it due to political options, so even with a full fledged city you should have always something to do.


    KEEP THE BORDERS CLOSED !


    They even have the 'gender equality' slider haha

    I hope after release the developer will be expanding and making expansions or DLC's for this, everything seems A-M-A-Z-I-N-G so far

    Intrigued. Should be fun to experiment with going full Nazbol fortress state to full Anarcho-capitalist legal coke and child labour.

    This usually translates to "I will teach you why my political views are better..."

    Let's see how this will turn out.

    It's been two decades since I played SimCity 2000, but suddenly I feel like installing it again --- and Good Old Games is selling it for just $6. :M

    Honestly, just play 3000. It's superior in every way.

    And 4 is superior in every way to both those. And there are thousands of mods for it.

    Simcity is one of the very rare series that kept improving with each installment. Until they shit the bed completely with NuSimCity of course. There is no reason to play the old ones. Unless you REALLY like arcologies.

    Never understood why 4 decided to drop arcologies. Was a fun, end-game thing to build when you really have nothing else to do and millions of dollars to spend.

    I only wish we would finally get a city builder where having slums and lots of low income housing is economically viable so i can create the ultimate neo-liberal utopia.
    :keepmymoney:

    The problem with city builders is that you can win them, in the sense that raising the standard of living and having everyone be middle class or higher is extremely easy. If I play Sim City 4 or Cities Skylines the way the devs want me to play, I'll end up with nothing but skyscrapers, high tech industry and mansions. Without the shitty parts of the city, it doesn't feel real.

    It doesn't help that most city simulations handle the data that influences class demand in an averaged rather than stratified manner. So strong separations of hi/mid/low class districts are hard to accomplish in a single map. Keep building parks and schools in the posh parts of town and eventually that'll bleed over to affect the whole tile, killing off your beautiful dirty industries.
