Cartel: City Building Strategy Game




I’m part of a team (including @Naga) that’s building the game Cartel on SpatialOS.

Cartel turns classic city-building games like SimCity upside down. Instead of building and managing a city as a lone mayor, players are cast as entrepreneurs who must compete and collaborate with each other as they struggle for control of resources and to create the most valuable companies in the game world.

Every building in the city interacts with others nearby, creating a web of positive and negative effects that influence the rise and fall of company fortunes. We’re especially excited by the way that SpatialOS can make player companies and the evolution of their neighborhoods and cities persistent across long time scales and play sessions.

We’ll be announcing play tests here in the forums in the future!
