I've just done a big final update, which includes a difficulty setting and some new maps (on my site). *Newgrounds is now up to date with the new version.
Thanks for all the positive responses! Until it got into the spotlight, the score was briefly at #2 on the all-time list, which was pretty cool.

Keep your people happy at all costs while you rebuild civilization. Be an evil dictator or a hippy in this sarcastic take on the future!

This is the advanced sequal to my RTS colony game of 2 years ago.. I made the original to get into College, and this sequal is the first game I've made since graduating, and it's the first time I've tried drawing everything in Photoshop. It's taken FAR too long to complete (50+ pages of code!!!), and I've been away FAR too long.. but I'm back!

---- NOOB TIP ----
When you lose, you can still continue the game! It doesn't matter if you lose while learning.

-- Features --
*18 different buildings
*8 government types (including crazy ones)
*3 unique maps
*Dozens of random (and usually sarcastic) events
*Build roads and bridges
*Control your stupid people with fear and lies!

-- Basic Controls / Notes --
(Most of the game should explain itself)
*Hold your mouse over buttons and stuff for more info
*Use arrows or WASD to scroll the map
*You can only build bridges in shallow water!
*If it runs slowly, click the MENU button on the bottom right and lower graphics. It is also recommended that you close other windows / programs.
*There's even a developer console (press "~"). Cheats are up at


i an also known in flyborg as youwillneverbeas...

this game kicke the biggest ass ever dudes

Confusing, Fun, Then Boring.....

Its really fun but has no reply value what so ever. Even the different government styles don't change much game to game. It has great potential and I would like to see it become a trilogy. My suggestion is bigger maps and more variety between games. Maybe add a dock and have fishing or add a protagonist too.

This was great

I played until 2071. I got bored I used all of the area and upgraded all buildings to thier best there was no problems left , though if i had not clicked the thing that makes it so you cant loose or win then i would have beaten it. My addvice is to not use too many coal power because it ends in 2047 and if you dont have realiable energy source then it sux for u and build the housing structures first then build the big defense center thing i forgot what it was then build the nuclear power and delete all coal power plants.

this is quite an interesting game, even though i suck at it (the ppl have kicked me out of power 6 times already...). kinda difficult, but i'm getting the hang of it.
