Welcome Grand Architect! Building Arcadia is a sci-fi city-building adventure game that continues playing while you are idle.

You are about to enter the world of Arcadia. Set in the far future where technology has evolved the Human species beyond what we recognise today.

Join an interstellar community called Arcadia, managed by a Council of beings from across the galaxy. The Human’s have finally evolved enough to join the Arcadian authority and you are the first human to granted the privilege of being able to access the network in its entirety.

Your first task as now Grand Architect is to create a new paradise world for humanity to inhabit, created by the Council as a gift. Can you make Fortuna a paradise and make humanity proud? Or will something get in your way?

● Over 40 procedurally generated locations on each play-through.
● 4 different location types to build on
● 25 Buildings to build (and more to be added)
● Lots of obstacles to avoid and clear

● Encounter an ancient evil that will hinder your progress
● Discover over 11 strange anomalies that can have positive and negative outcomes
● Seek wisdom and guidance from a sarcastic 'Quanta' and get more information on the world of Arcadia
● Interact with strange and fun characters

● Locate and procure resources to fuel the expansion of the colony
● Unlock technologies and buildings
● Produce, and combine colony products to build a thriving economy.
● Incrementally upgrade your producers, refiners and factories to maximise your profits

● Actions have consequences, this is no typical idle game, so you will need to think about how to expand.
● Combat the ancient evil as it attempts to destroy the colony using the power of the nanite swarm
● A new type of incremental game that isn’t just a game on rails.
● Combines adventure, city building and idle/incremental game aspects
● You can die in this game, but with each iteration, your progress will incrementally improve, though with some initial setbacks.

What are you waiting for? Let’s Build Arcadia.

Resource management

Resources are a bit off. Resource buildings alone already take up a chunk of resources. When one resource is low we build a resource building to raise the amount of resources, but by the time we’ve raised that resource to 100% another one is low. Continuing this cycle of building resource buildings and never having 100% resources because each resource building requires a different resource to be built.

The potential for an amazing game is there

The concept and look of the game is fantastic, however there a quite a few bugs that make this game largely unplayable at moment. Some won’t let you upgrade or build buildings and currently I’m just stuck in the middle of one the uninhabited cities unable to leave, which is a shame because tbh is game could be amazing if it was playable.

Great game, stopped working

Ok so after my first anomaly killed me, the game wont load any resources or let me build new resource gathering points. The game is really run, but this is frustrating. Ive deleted and redownloaded it twice now and it does the same thing after the first anomaly kills me.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for letting us know. We're currently working on a new update to the game and this is one of the things we're fixing. Apologies for the crashes!
We're really glad you enjoyed the game and hope you come back to Arcadia once we update it soon!
