In the spin-off Sid Meier Civilization turn-based strategy games, you’ll discover alien planets deep beneath the stars. The game is believed as the spiritual sequel to Alpha Centauri by Sid Meier. David McDonough, the lead designer, has said, “For all of the fans of Alpha Centauri out there, this is the game we made for you”. The game is set at a future time.
A calamity called “the Great Mistake” will result in humans leaving the earth. Humanity is able to travel to extraterrestrial planets to settle the planets and begin an entirely new existence. Now, it is our duty to colonize and explore with the help of new technology to begin the next chapter of human history. It was a short time of celebration for humanity following the first wave of huge colony vessels that left Earth.
The planet they left behind was barren thus they were caught up in a tense struggle for the diminishing resources. In this turbulent time two new factions started to form. It wasn’t the idealistic thinking of their predecessors who shaped these newcomers, but determination, courage, and brutality, and, most importantly, an unwavering commitment to being able to survive.
After decades of their first encounter on another planet, survivors of the first explorations beyond Earth gaze up to find the sky by a new kind of explorers. The Civilization franchise grew beyond its historical setting to futuristic science fiction by introducing Beyond Earth. Before, players took control of ancient empires ruled by historical characters, each with their distinct personality and traits.
