Avqa

We first became aware of the Avqa in 3527. They reside on the steamy planet Avqa in the Adpa system. They are obsessive, nomadic, and noble.

The Avqa make use of stone tools for many things, including when hunting the wild sladqad.

The Avqa have begun to cultivate crops, including slâdâv, a kind of sour moss that grows well in the soil of Avqa.

The Avqa have begun to construct permanent dwellings and other structures. They make especially extensive use of marble as a building material.

The Avqa have learned how to catch water-dwelling creatures such as the avqa, which is now an important part of the Avqa diet.

The Avqa have mastered the control of fire. They use it to cook their food, and to light their villages at night.

The Avqa have developed a simple system of writing, which they use primarily for record-keeping.

The Avqa have discovered how to forge molten metal into jewelry, tools, weapons, and armor.

The Avqa have begun to watch the skies and recognize patterns in the movements of stars, which they use to navigate over great distances and keep track of time.

In 3709, an emerging religion known as Akxa was declared the official religion of the largest Avqa state. Adherents of Akxa wear striking brown caps to mark themselves as believers.

The Avqa have domesticated a species of small flying creatures. The pets assist their Avqa owners with navigation in exchange for food and shelter.

In 3734, many of the fractious Avqa kingdoms were united under a single banner by an individual known as Âvqa Âkqaâ. The resulting empire has its capital at Slavqav and rules over approximately 17% of the entire Avqa population. Like many other Avqa states, it is governed by a council of elders.

The Avqa have developed a sophisticated understanding of basic mathematics, such as arithmetic, algebra, and geometry.

The Avqa have begun to use lenses and mirrors made from polished crystal, glass, and water to redirect and focus light.

The Avqa have begun to make use of more sophisticated construction techniques, relying on sturdy structural elements such as arches and buttresses to support larger and larger buildings.

The Avqa have developed a simple printing press, and mass-produced versions of important texts have begun to circulate widely throughout the world. Light novels are especially popular.

In their efforts to understand the motion of planets in the sky, free-falling bodies, and projectiles, the Avqa have developed a new branch of mathematics which is immediately recognizable as calculus.

Some of the Avqa have begun to experiment with alchemy, systematically searching for new ways of combining and manipulating ingredients to yield useful chemicals, compounds, and medicines.

The Avqa have built elaborate pipe and sewer systems to supply their larger settlements, such as Slavqav, with fresh water and a hygenic means of waste disposal.

The Avqa have discovered a way to manufacture gunpowder, which they primarily use for explosive mining.

The Avqa have begun to develop rockets.

The Avqa have learned how to build ships and sail them across the oceans of Avqa to explore and trade over increasingly greater distances.

Through systematic observation and categorization of the various living things on Avqa, the Avqa have begun to develop a more sophisticated understanding of biology. Some theorists have even put forth the idea that dramatically different-looking organisms, such as the sladqad and the avqa, may in fact be descended from a single common ancestor.

The initially controversial hypothesis that diseases can be caused by microorganisms has begun to catch on among the Avqa, leading to the widespread adoption of public health policies which have greatly reduced the spread of disease.

The Avqa have arrived at a sophisticated understanding of genetics, which has enabled them to craft new forms of life by deliberately modifying the genes of existing organisms.

The Avqa have begun to construct wind and water mills, which redirect the forces of the natural world to perform repetitive mechanical tasks such as grinding grain and pumping water.

The Avqa have successfully tamed electricity, and are now beginning to deploy it throughout society. Electric lights are widespread, electric motors are used to drive factories, and the growing need for electric power has led to the construction of power plants near every major center of Avqa population.

The Avqa have developed a practical and cost-effective steam engine, which can be fueled with wood or coal.

The Avqa have begun harnessing the power of electricity to send messages across very great distances with unprecedented speed. Due to the overhead of encoding and decoding messages, long-distance communication remains far from instantaneous, but it is now possible for individuals on opposite sides of Avqa to exchange several messages over the course of a single day.

The Avqa have developed flying machines which can carry them into the skies above Avqa.

The Avqa have developed an accurate model of the internal structure of the atom, which has also enabled them to understand the phenomenon of radioactivity.

The Avqa have begun to understand quantum physics.

The Avqa have discovered that electromagnetic waves may be used to transmit information, enabling the development and widespread deployment of media for audiovisual broadcasting.

With the development of the transistor, the Avqa have begun to construct more sophisticated electronic circuits.

The Avqa have begun to build general-purpose programmable computers.

The Avqa have begun to connect their computers into a single vast network, enabling communication and collaboration on a truly global scale.

In 4175, the Avqa successfully detonated their first prototype nuclear weapon. It remains unclear whether the Avqa scientists who worked on the bomb understand the sheer destructive potential of the weapon they have created.

The Avqa have taken their first tentative steps into space, launching craft capable of supporting several individuals into orbit around Avqa before retrieving them safely.

The Avqa have begun to experiment with the use of "intelligent materials", in the form of swarms of programmable nanobots.

The Avqa have begun to establish permanent colonies on worlds other than Avqa. Although still largely unable to travel outside of the Adpa system, the distribution of Avqa civilization across multiple worlds greatly reduces the risk that they will collapse due to any crisis of merely planetary scale.

The Avqa have constructed their first cost-effective quantum computers, dramatically improving their collective ability to perform certain types of calculation.

In 4244, following decades of negotiation, the various sovereign Avqa nations came to an agreement concerning the establishment of a unified planet-wide government for all of the Avqa.

The Avqa have developed a form of artificial general intelligence which rivals many of their own intellectual capabilities.

Through their investigations of quantum phenomena, the Avqa have discovered a means of sending and receiving messages which travel at speeds exceeding that of light itself.

The Avqa have successfully tested their first faster-than-light starship. No longer are they trapped within the gravity well of the Adpa system: they are now free to take their place alongside us as fellow wanderers among the stars.

In 4276, the Avqa joined us.

Some theorists have even put forth the idea that dramatically different-looking organisms, such as the vaivim and the zavub, may in fact share a single common ancestor.

In 2567, many of the warring Vuvag tribes were united under a single banner by an individual known as Vazam the Magnificent. The resulting empire has its capital at Kakab and rules over approximately 44% of the entire Vuvag population. Unusually for the Vuvag, it is governed by direct democratic vote.

In 2584, an emerging religion known as Vazag was declared the official religion of the largest Vuvag state. Adherents of Vazag wear brightly colored clothing to mark themselves as believers.

In their efforts to understand the motion of planets in the sky, free-falling bodies, and projectiles, the Vuvag have developed a new branch of mathematics which is immediately recognizable as calculus.

The Vuvag have built elaborate pipe and sewer systems to supply their larger settlements, such as Kakab, with fresh water and a hygenic means of waste disposal.

The initially controversial hypothesis that diseases are caused by microorganisms has begun to catch on among the Vuvag, leading to the widespread adoption of public health policies which have greatly reduced the spread of disease.

The Vuvag have developed a practical and cost-effective steam engine, which can be fueled with wood or coal.

The Vuvag have discovered a way to manufacture gunpowder, which they primarily use in warfare.

The Vuvag have begun to develop rockets.

The Vuvag have successfully tamed electricity, and are now beginning to deploy it throughout society. Electric lights are widespread, electric motors are used to drive factories, and the growing need for electric power has led to the construction of power plants near every major center of Vuvag population.

In 2728, the Vuvag population reached 25 million individuals. Many of these live within permanent cities, the largest of which is known as Kakab and has a population of 70,000.

Due to its role as the birthplace of several major Vuvag religions, including the especially prominent Vazag faith, the city of Kakab is regarded by many of the Vuvag as a holy site. The high priest of Kakab is considered the de facto leader of the Vazag church as a whole, and pilgrimages to the city are commonplace.

The Vuvag have begun harnessing the power of electricity to send messages across very great distances with unprecedented speed. Due to the overhead of encoding and decoding messages, long-distance communication remains far from instantaneous, but it is now possible for individuals on opposite sides of Vuvub to exchange several messages over the course of a single day.

The Vuvag have developed an accurate model of the internal structure of the atom, which has also enabled them to understand the phenomenon of radioactivity.

With the development of the transistor, the Vuvag have begun to construct more sophisticated electronic circuits.

The Vuvag have begun to build general-purpose programmable computers.

The Vuvag have discovered that electromagnetic waves may be used to transmit information, enabling the development and widespread deployment of media for audiovisual broadcasting.

The Vuvag have developed flying machines which can carry them into the skies above Vuvub.

In 2856, the Vuvag successfully detonated their first prototype nuclear weapon. It remains unclear whether the Vuvag scientists who worked on the bomb understand the sheer destructive potential of the weapon they have created.

In 2860, a single nuclear weapon was deployed in an attack on a medium-sized Vuvag city. The incident did not escalate into a full-scale nuclear war, but the city was almost completely obliterated, resulting in the deaths of some 171,000 Vuvag.

The Vuvag have taken their first tentative steps into space, launching craft capable of supporting several individuals into orbit around Vuvub before retrieving them safely.

The Vuvag have begun to connect their computers into a single vast network, enabling communication and collaboration on a truly global scale.

The Vuvag have begun to understand quantum physics.

The Vuvag have arrived at a sophisticated understanding of genetics, which has enabled them to craft new forms of life by deliberately modifying the genes of existing organisms.

In 2924, following decades of negotiation, the various sovereign Vuvag nations came to an agreement concerning the establishment of a unified planet-wide government for all of the Vuvag.

The Vuvag have constructed their first cost-effective quantum computers, dramatically improving their collective ability to perform certain types of calculation.

The Vuvag have begun to experiment with the use of "intelligent materials", in the form of swarms of programmable nanobots.

The Vuvag have begun to establish permanent colonies on worlds other than Vuvub. Although still largely unable to travel outside of the Sagabka system, the distribution of Vuvag civilization across multiple worlds greatly reduces the risk that they will collapse due to any crisis of merely planetary scale.

The Vuvag have developed a form of artificial general intelligence which rivals many of their own intellectual capabilities.

Through their investigations of quantum phenomena, the Vuvag have discovered a means of sending and receiving messages which travel at speeds exceeding that of light itself.

The Vuvag have successfully tested their first faster-than-light starship. No longer are they trapped within the gravity well of the Sagabka system: they are now free to take their place alongside us as fellow wanderers among the stars.

In 2976, the Vuvag joined us.

Yuxuzox

We first became aware of the Yuxuzox in 3035. They inhabit the rainy planet Xuoxixiz in the Xubxi system. They are warlike, resilient, and nomadic.

The Yuxuzox make use of stone tools in a variety of contexts, including as weapons when hunting the wild yizyu.

Despite a few initial mishaps, the Yuxuzox have mastered the control of fire. They use it to cook their food, and to light their villages at night.

The Yuxuzox have begun to cultivate crops, including hoxi, a kind of hardy seedpod that grows well on the floodplains of Xuoxixiz.

The Yuxuzox have domesticated a species of small winged predators. The pets assist their Yuxuzox owners with hunting in exchange for food and shelter.

The Yuxuzox have discovered how to forge molten metal into jewelry, tools, weapons, and armor.

The Yuxuzox have begun to construct permanent dwellings and other structures. Wherever possible, they seem to prefer brick as a building material.

The Yuxuzox have built elaborate pipe and sewer systems to supply their larger settlements, such as Yiroz, with fresh water and a hygenic means of waste disposal.

The Yuxuzox have begun to watch the skies and recognize patterns in the movements of stars, which they use to navigate over great distances and keep track of time.

In 3268, many of the warring Yuxuzox clans were united under a single banner by an individual known as Yuzyu the Merciful. The resulting empire has its capital at Yiroz and rules over approximately 5% of the entire Yuxuzox population. Unusually for the Yuxuzox, it is governed by direct democratic vote.

The Yuxuzox have learned how to build ships and sail them across the oceans of Xuoxixiz to explore and trade over increasingly greater distances.

In 3322, the Yuxuzox population reached 25 million individuals. Many of these reside within permanent cities, the largest of which is known as Yiroz and has a population of 63,000.

The Yuxuzox have begun to construct wind and water mills, which redirect the forces of the natural world to perform repetitive mechanical tasks such as grinding grain and pumping water.

Due to its role as the birthplace of several major Yuxuzox religions, including the especially prominent Huixuzoz faith, the city of Yiroz is regarded by many of the Yuxuzox as a holy site. Leaders from all around the world make trips to the city in order to curry favor with the leaders of their people's religion of choice.

The Yuxuzox have learned how to catch water-dwelling creatures such as the yuyxi, which is now an important part of the Yuxuzox diet.

The Yuxuzox have developed a simple system of writing, which they use primarily for poetry.

The Yuxuzox have developed a sophisticated understanding of basic mathematics, such as arithmetic, algebra, and geometry.

Some of the Yuxuzox have begun to experiment with alchemy, systematically searching for new ways of combining and manipulating ingredients to yield useful chemicals, compounds, and medicines.

The Yuxuzox have discovered a way to manufacture gunpowder, which they primarily use for explosive mining.

The Yuxuzox have begun to make use of more sophisticated construction techniques, relying on sturdy structural elements such as arches and buttresses to support larger and larger buildings.

The Yuxuzox have developed a simple printing press, and mass-produced versions of important texts have begun to circulate widely throughout the world. Scary stories are especially popular.

The Yuxuzox have begun to use lenses and mirrors made from polished crystal, glass, and water to redirect and focus light.

Through systematic observation and categorization of the various living things on Xuoxixiz, the Yuxuzox have begun to develop a more sophisticated understanding of biology. Some theorists have even put forth the idea that dramatically different-looking organisms, such as the yizyu and the yuyxi, may in fact be descended from a single common ancestor.

The Yuxuzox have developed a practical and cost-effective steam engine, which can be fueled with wood or coal.

The Yuxuzox have successfully tamed electricity, and are now beginning to deploy it throughout society. Electric lights are widespread, electric motors are used to drive factories, and the growing need for electric power has led to the construction of power plants near every major center of Yuxuzox population.

In 3619, a rapidly growing religion known as Huixuzoz became the official religion of the largest Yuxuzox state. Adherents of Huixuzoz wear plain black hats to mark themselves as believers.

The Yuxuzox have begun harnessing the power of electricity to send messages across very great distances with unprecedented speed. Due to the overhead of encoding and decoding messages, long-distance communication remains far from instantaneous, but it is now possible for individuals on opposite sides of Xuoxixiz to exchange several messages over the course of a single day.

In 3865, the Yuxuzox joined us.

The Ënoh make extensive use of stone tools for many things, including when hunting the wild omë.

The Ënoh have domesticated a species of small feathered creatures. The pets assist their Ënoh owners with pest control in exchange for food and shelter.

Due to the extreme effectiveness of stone tools in hunting omë, the Ënoh managed to hunt the omë species to extinction. Being reliant on the omë for food, the Ënoh then suffered a famine which brought about the end of Ënoh civilization.


This is a glitch, right? I mean they literally had agriculture before hunting.

Think about the Irish potato famine situation, just without the British. 

In 3990, a swarm of self-replicating Náóá nanobots began to replicate uncontrollably, devouring vast swaths of Záóí at a rate which Náóá scientists had formerly deemed impossible. After several days of rapid expansion, the swarm seems to have become dormant, but not before consuming approximately 5% of the entire mass of Záóí and rendering Náóá civilization completely extinct 5% and they become extinct? is this a bug?

5% of the mass of a planet is a *lot*.Keep in mind it isn't talking about population. Not only that, but the nanobots likely traveled above ground, consuming all Náóá in their path. 

Fcumfcoh

We first became aware of the Fcumfcoh in 2694. They reside on the dry planet Bamfbo in the Fbohfbom system. They are artistic, studious, and aloof.

The Fcumfcoh have begun to cultivate crops, including a kind of tough cactus known as flouo that grows well on the riverbanks of Bamfbo.

The Fcumfcoh make extensive use of stone tools in a variety of contexts, especially when hunting the wild fbuou.

The Fcumfcoh have domesticated a species of small winged predators. The pets assist their Fcumfcoh owners with hunting in exchange for food and shelter.

The Fcumfcoh have mastered the control of fire. They use it to cook their food, and to light their villages at night.

Due to the extreme effectiveness of stone tools in hunting fbuou, the Fcumfcoh managed to hunt the fbuou species to extinction. Being reliant on the fbuou for food, the Fcumfcoh then suffered a famine which brought about the end of Fcumfcoh civilization.


How did this happen? How did they die with agriculture to the extinction of animals they hunted? Is this a glich?

I just mentioned Epitaph again in an interview about our Fermi Paradox game and just want to post a thank you again for being an inspiration during the Fermi Paradox Jam <3

(+1)

Thanks so much! It’s been really exciting to watch your game starting to get some of the attention it deserves – hope the early access release is going well :)

I won!


The Vivihkru have successfully tested their first faster-than-light starship. No longer are they trapped within the gravity well of the Vuvuickru system: they are now free to take their place alongside us as fellow wanderers among the stars.

In 3732, the Vivihkru joined us.

I was directed to this game from a GDC talk by Heather Robertson.I finished the game after about 5 civilizations failed, what an awesome experience. I was invested in my little civ of Pibgu gently pushing them forward and egging them on. Worried when they began to develop their own dangerous technologies. I ended up copying the whole story to a text file and keeping it as a souvenir so i will remember the mighty Pibgu!

The Oveo have developed a simple system of writing, which they use primarily for record-keeping.

The Oveo have developed a simple system of writing, which they use primarily for worship. 


Above is the result when you choose what to teach to a civilisation and you click at the same time they learn it.

Btw, STUPID WANDERING COMETS STOP GETTING LOST AND COLLIDING WITH MY CIVILISATIONS!!!

Great game! :P

(1 edit)

This game is pretty interesting; nice to play while you're reading something else... one question, though: on a global scale, wouldn't AI takeover simply mean that one advanced civilization was immediately replaced by another, except non-organic?

(+1)

This game is incredible.  I love it.  So many civilizations die though.  Yikes.  I've spent too much time on this.  Nice work.  I've got to put it down now.

So many wiping themselves out.  ARGH!

(+3)

I gave metal working to a civilization and then they immediately died to a war over metal deposits. Not even a year.

"The city of Mu'naq has become renowed among the Afju as a center of commerce and trade. In particular, the fine fabrics produced there are highly sought after by traders around the world." There is a typo: renowned, not renowed. Other than that - absolutely brilliant.

(+1)

Nice catch – thanks for letting me know!

(+2)

No problem! I love the game, thanks so much for making it! My best civilization, the Afju, got wiped out by a genetically engineered virus in the year 3615. Dang... I shouldn't have taught them Genetics!

(+1)

I don't like the whole "slammed into an asteroid" maybe make that happen a bit later, when our civs actually have a chance against it.

(+2)

My biggest civilization wiped themself off the planet through a nuclear war! XD

(+2)

my longest civilization was the nopsjon they got wiped out by just a volcanic winter even though they already had invented FREAKING NUKES

(+2)

NUKES FOR GODSAKE

(+2)

That's nothing... I had a SPACE FARING civilization that got the "Your STONE TOOLS are so effective the so-and-so wild beast was hunted to extinction, causing the collapse of your civilization due to food shortages."  Come ON.  With genetics, computers, even just basic agriculture this species ditched their stone tools ages ago and had no reliance on hunting.  This is a BUG.  If it helps (either debugging, or players trying to survive), one unusual thing about this species is they never developed fishing.  So maybe that's the underlying cause.  Still, it's pretty unrealistic and should be fixed.  Only example I could find though, of totally blatant breaking of the suspension of disbelief... so thumbs up on an overall awesome game and one of my all time favorites in the genre!

When will there be an update? :D

(+2)

i got extremly lucky as the SECOND civilization i encounterd survived long enough to develop tfl travel and join me :D

I won woo!!!!!!!!

(+1)

all societies self destruct with fast advances in technology. If their technology is slow to progress, however, they become unsustainable and die out. Isn't there a way to research philosophy?

Nooooo!!!

The Pocpuc were almost there! Stupid AI with command control.

(+1)

What a great game! I really like the mix of a classic civilization game and the idle component.

The fostering of civilizations in parallel is really nice. I currently try a similar approach in my current prototype. ( http://twitter.com/FermiGame )

Im willing to use my time to test your game

That would be awesome, i think I will have a external build for alpha testing in the next months.

If you like send me your email to joergreisig@gmail.com and I write you something as soon as I have something testable.

My email is Wigan96@hotmail.co.uk - just to verify it iis me, I will copy and past your comment in the mail too that you just sent me :)

I will be looking forward to testing a build once it becomes available. Sorry, I have just seen this comment. I have been busy today

What do you do when a civilization joins you?

you've won, and welcome the species into the greater galaxy

Come on man, I hate you! The Uyumkauc were so close to FTL, and you killed them! It's pretty amazing how attached you can make me to a piece of auto-generated text.

This game has a lot of potential, I really like it! It only needs a UI upgrade and a downloadable form of the game, whether it is on PC or Mobile. The only complain about this game is how hard it is to keep up with old civilizations and young civilizations, I would suggest making them a tab that you can click on instead of a single file column

I loved this game so much!

However, there seems to be small bug: sometimes the clock just stops ticking and so the game stops updating and I have to refresh the page. It happened to me at 4747 and again at 4189.

RIP Hichwe, I'll miss your amazing civ =(

Hmm, I've never seen that one before! Mind letting me know which browser & OS you're using (including versions) so I can try to reproduce the issue?

(1 edit)

I'm using Opera 37.0.2192.105088 on a Samsung Galaxy S4 (gt-i9505) Android 5.0.1

Lovely game!

Link seems to load nothing but a blank screen - broken forever or just for now?

It should be back up now! Some browsers didn't like the way I was loading the Tone.js audio library over HTTP instead of HTTPS. I pushed a fix that seems to have resolved the issue, at least for me.

Seems to be working for me on my phone, presumably it's fixed on desktop too. Thanks, Max.

I just came here to say, this is an awesome game. Thank you for building this!

Would be cool to download an EXE for this
