First City-States

Neolithic: First City-States is a Historical Strategy Game heavily influenced by games such as Age of Empires I, Civilization & Caesar III, and to a lesser extent games like Haven and Hearth, UnReal World and games like RimWorld. The game includes aspects of city building, RTS-like gameplay and deep character progression. It is essentially a full-time solo dev project.

The best place to keep up to date with development is Discord!

You can still find the Kickstarter campaign here for detailed information on the game.

You can also find more information on the youtube channel.

I'll be making updates to this website, Kickstarter, Facebook, Twitter and weekly screenshots on Discord.

If you would like to give feedback, feel free to join in the discussion on Discord.

Final release will be on Windows, Mac and Linux (Steam, hopefully GOG). Final release is TBA, but there will be opportunities to support the game and join testing before then (mid-late 2019).
