  • Urban Empire

In Urban Empire you take control of a mayoral dynasty and lead your city and people through 200 years of history. Establish infrastructures, plan city districts, debate political decisions at the town council, bribe or blackmail your opponents, empower the democratic rights of your people or ignore them and reign supremely by yourself – the decision is yours!

Beginning in the 1820s, establish your city through five different eras, each with its own threats and opportunities. Master the challenges of the centuries, face political struggles, experience world-changing events and pioneering inventions, and create your own unique Urban Empire!

Urban Empire is a ‘City Ruler’, pioneering a new breed of strategy game that combines city builder features with political scheming and adds profound social and historical events into the mix, creating a whole new gameplay experience where players must employ strategic planning and political savvy to successfully grow their cities in their role as Mayor.

City Ruler, not City Builder:

    Urban Empire offers a unique combination of classic city building and political management gameplay. Take on the role of a mayor, be a political mastermind and prove your skills by prevailing against opposing parties and guiding your city through technological evolutions and ideological revolutions.

The boys and girls at Good Aul Games have added the ancient ancient city-builder games Caesar and Caesar II to their roster of classics, along with their Chinese counterpart Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom which is less ancient (released in 2002) but still ancient (set 3000 years ago). For years, the only way to buy ’em was to track down a second-hand CD copy. GOG already had a bunch of Sierra’s city-building series on their ethereal shelves, including the later Caesars, so getti...
