Description

You are the Elder, spiritual guide of your secluded village. A dark omen was cast on this land. Help your villagers survive their Dark Ages. Build, produce, lead your Pips and try to survive as the heavens unfold their wrath on your puny village! Can you find out what caused the Apocalypse? .Age (read: 'dot age') is a turn-based village builder with a heart of stone. It is a hybrid between a roguelike and a village simulator: FTL meets Agricola!

Features

Strategic Gameplay: classical town-builder gameplay in a turn-based fashion, with a claustrophobic map reminiscent of European-style board games.

Plenty of Content: More than 70 buildings to research and more than 50 resources, with full production chains from raw materials to finished products.

Fate is angry: the complex Fate system will throw more than 300 events at you to fight off. From simple coughs to earthquakes, from tornadoes to plagues, from volcanoes to inondations, from taxes to kittens, from cattle diseases to furious murders.

The world changes: life becomes harder and harder as you play, keep an eye on the current levels of Fear, Sickness, Heat, Cold, and Cataclysm!

Cute yet merciless pixels: the cute pixel art details all the harsh realities of these Dark Ages. Don’t get fooled by the happy colors!

All different playthroughs: Play a different game and a different story each time thanks to the Fate system and a dynamic research tree

Listen to the Montpellier Codex: real medieval music rearranged in a retro game style is waiting for you

The village is doomed! - destruction is permanent, errors can doom your village and you won’t be able to reload from a better position!

An Apocalyptic goal - reach the end of these dark times and fight the Apocalypse to win the game.
