Get ready to witness evolutionary breakthroughs that enabled early Egyptians to march into faraway lands, fight catastrophes, hardships and ultimately establish first Egyptian state. Will you be able to re-enact the events that unfolded historically or will you doom your fledgling chiefdom into forgotten annals of history? Get an intimate knowledge about events that took place before the Classic Egypt eras through this unique game.

Wars, drought, enemy invasions, epidemics, internal turmoil, migration of the tribes, religious ceremonies, exploration of distant lands, celebrations and more than 100+ other events and trials await you in the game!

48 historically accurate technologies and cultural achievements of Pre-Dynastic Egypt with interesting descriptions, will show the technological evolution of mankind on the example of the Egyptian civilization.
* Mysteries of Egyptian religion and culture

* Reconstructed map of Ancient Egypt
Accurate reconstruction of the geographic map of ancient Egypt 5000-3000 BC, taking into account the climatic changes of that period when the Sahara was a Savannah and not a desert and Wadies were rivers and not roads.
* Reconstructed city of Hierakonpolis
Accurate archaeological reconstruction of the Hierakonpolis - the former center of Pre-Dynastic Egypt. You will build the real houses, temples and tombs, that were excavated by archeologists in XX-XXI century.

The fate of the whole nation is in your hands. Make important decisions in real historical situations, wars, disasters. True story will immerse you into the mysterious atmosphere of the ancient world, you will see through the eyes of the ancient Egyptians.

Wanted to add a big applause for this game
Egypt is often forgotten in favor of Rome and others
But Egypt was very very important to humanity and I am glad this game shines a light on that
Looking forward to playing when I get off work

I have played through the tutorial or beginner mode may do It again just to get an even better feel on things. There are some things I like right away like the weather changing and the sounds etc I love how it brings the game to life and it's just nice to listen to while playing.
if you like games like Civilization then this may interest you as it's in that style but this is heavily focused on Early Egypt which is different and very good. Glad I got it.

I have done some beta test for this, mainly for iPad Mini 2 UI things. Played it for some time and I can say it is a rather interesting twist on "worker placement" game. Recommend it.

Edit: The tutorial is nicely done and guides you through the things you need to do, while explaining why you are doing so.

Edit: I have some thoughts after going through the beta and I think I better talk about them in other channel.
