Kalypso’s Urban Empire Is Civilization Meets SimCity

by Mike Futter on Mar 10, 2016 at 02:00 AM

We’re used to ruling over long-lived empires. We’ve watched our Civilizations grow from lone settlers into world-spanning monarchies for decades. We also love to see individual cities flourish under our deft guidance.

Urban Empire, developed by Fragment and published by Kalypso, will bring these two ideas together. You’ll guide a city from the industrial age through modern day, researching new technologies and philosophies, guiding law-making bodies, and helping its resident live good, productive lives.

You can choose from one of four families, each with five different characters. Each has different priorities that will take cities down different paths.

Urban Empire is slated for release during fall 2016.
