Civilization Machine

This is a school project I've been working on sporadically for two weeks now. It's an exploration of both the idea of mapping chronology in a somewhat nonlinear way as well as the idea that technological and cultural advancement aren't always the same; pressing the button every time it comes up will lock you into a cycle that repeats some of the "worst" stages of the little planet's history.

I'll let the rest speak for itself. Enjoy!

NOTE: I KNOW IT HAS NO SOUND. If I had the extra week I'd hoped for rather than a frenzied day of work at the last minute, I would have made some. I may still do so in the next month or two. There's no need to mention this in your reviews.

EDIT: Hey, daily third! That makes this my first award-winning piece on Newgrounds! Thanks a lot to everyone who's taken the time to play with the Machine, and especially those of you who have voted and written reviews!

Well this is a nice game I thaught it could have gone a bit longer it was and some sound would really be nice but you have something pretty decent here it was still notbad of a game. I would keep working on it

Ad some sound and make longer


It's alright, it's very repetitive. Get's boring after a while.

so bad the same thing happens over and over

If you are still up for working on this, here are my suggestions:
1. Put something between the temple and the castle that resembles a Roman period.
2. Put something between the castle and the factory, that would resemble the Rennaisance.
3. Sound of course would be great.
4. Maybe you could put a way to get to two endings from a choice to go backwards in the earlier game to make a total of four endings.

Other than that, I thought it was a great idea, kinda realistic, and great!

Fun game. Wiii, flying skyscrapers :)

Could have been a bit longer. Also, what does the yellow pie with a red thing on top, before it becomes the castle, represent?? I have no idea other than a pie...
