The world’s pollution is threatening all life on Earth. Employed by a Billionaire, and chosen for your high intelligence and psychopathic tendencies, it’s up to you to save the world by any means necessary. On surface Depopulation is a military strategy game glorifying casualties, but underneath is a deeply emotional, philosophical roller coaster, that will help you understand our unbreakable connection with the environment. It hopes to portray the terrible cost of ignoring that connection.

Use invasions, hunger, disease, nukes, amplifying natural disasters and civil wars to dramatically cull the most adaptable and clever animal on the planet. Or try a peaceful but harder approach. Use clever politics, convince countries to join you, build environmental wonders, construct environmental infrastructure and reduce the birth-rate to create a sustainable future. Either way, the only thing that matters is the survival of Earth’s environment, for which even billions lives is a small price to pay.

* Use the "fullscreen button" to adapt the game to your resolution.
* Game runs ~4X~5X faster now.
* AI now respawns. The mid game had too many neutral countries to attack, so now the Ai tends to gobble them up . This creates a far more engaging mid game.
* Fixed resolution issues
* Removed small countries
* Added a "fly to home" and "a fly to the country that last attacked you" buttons.

When I played previous version, I was preplexed:
I reduced pollution to zero. cleaned all pollution, why I still have to reduce population?
I thought it is hidden message: "aim of reducing population to save environment is wrong, it is not necessary to do"

However after update, this message became clear. Same time, author improved gameplay.
Actually, saveing enviromnemt is the global problem. Combined effort of majoity of people can resolve this problem.
I like both idea of this game and gameplay. 5/5 is deserved.

getting the no casualties ending was a pain. race to world peace then out-economy the remaining factions.

Keeps crashing, on chrome it gives an uncaught range error array buffer allocation failed. On Firefox it says:"The Browser could not allocate enough memory for the WebGL content. If you are the developer of this content, try allocating less memory to your WebGL build in the WebGL player settings." My Specs are Windows 10, 4 GB RAM, 2.7GHz Processor

McSwan responds:

Make sure you have the latest firefox and chrome. This game uses the latest in web assembly technology and requires the latest versions.

good 5/5 stars :)

McSwan responds:


So i have a problem the game is not working on firefox

McSwan responds:

Make sure you have the latest firefox - It use the the latest web assembly technology, which gives near native speeds on a browser game. I've just fixed the resolution issues as well.
