Ecological City Builder Imagine Earth Arriving on May 9

Developer Serious Bros. Continues Real-World Environmental Support with Donations During Earth Appreciation Festival on Steam

Indie game developer Serious Bros. is excited to announce the expansion of its popular ecological sci-fi city builder, Imagine Earth, to these new platforms, after its success on PC via Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S consoles.

Originally released in 2020, Imagine Earth has quickly gained a devoted fan base and critical acclaim for its unique combination of laidback strategy gameplay and sustainability themes. Set in the not-so-distant future of 2084, the game envisions a universe where humans have exhausted Earth’s resources and must look to the stars to establish new colonies. But rather than repeating the mistakes of the past, players must learn to balance expansion and ecology to create a truly sustainable civilization.

With eleven diverse planets to explore and build on, Imagine Earth offers players a rich and immersive gameplay experience. The terrain is filled with natural wonders such as blue waters, snow-capped peaks, and lush green expanses, ready to be explored, populated, and mined for resources. But players must also navigate the challenges of corporate greed, economic competition, and unpredictable natural disasters that can arise from their own exploitative actions.

To celebrate Earth Day and raise awareness for environmental protection, Imagine Earth will be on sale for 30% off from April 22 to April 29 as part of Steam’s Earth Appreciation Festival. Not only will this give players the opportunity to experience the game at a discounted price, but 100% of proceeds during this time will be donated to reforestation efforts around the globe. Additionally, Serious Bros. has committed to donating 10% of proceeds for the remainder of the festival, as part of their ongoing support for sustainability and environmental causes.

In Imagine Earth, players will take on the role of a space colony manager, tasked with building and growing cities on habitable planets. But this is not just a simple city-building game. The decisions players make will have real consequences, as they must balance the demands of corporations, civilians, and the environment. Research new technologies, engage in trade with space traders, and fend off hostile alien invaders in tower defense gameplay, all while striving to become a sustainable civilization.

The game offers a variety of gameplay modes, including a story-based campaign and a competition mode against up to five AI factions. For those looking for a more freeform experience, the game also offers a mode with procedurally generated planets. With its real-time planetary simulation, players can see the effects of their actions in the game, with natural disasters such as wildfires, volcanoes, and rising sea levels posing a threat to less sustainable civilizations.

With its thought-provoking gameplay and focus on sustainability, Imagine Earth stands out in the world of city-building games. As Serious Bros. continues to support environmental protection efforts through its annual impact report and donations, players can feel good about their contribution to a better future while enjoying a unique and engaging gaming experience.

The game will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 consoles, as well as a macOS version via Steam, on May 9, 2024. Don’t miss your chance to explore the universe and build a sustainable civilization in Imagine Earth.

Mark your calendars and join the movement for a better tomorrow.
