    Kongo UA: Each Relic, Artifact and Great Work of Sculpture gets food, production and gold. Gets extra Great Artist and Great Merchant points each turn (not clear since when).
    UU: Ngao Mbeba (swordsman): Extra defense vs ranged attacks, neither woods or rain forests slow them down or block sight, they don't need iron.
    UI: Neighborhoods replacement Mbanza (?), can be build earlier, provides housing, food and gold.
    Leader UA: Can't build Holy Sites (and can't found a religion), but does get a Founder Belifer of any religion that has established itself in a majority of his cities. Gets and Apostle each time he finishes Mbanza (?) and Theater District of that city's religion.

    Woooohoooooo!
    Ngao Mbeba is exactly as I thought it is.
    And finally a malus! No Holy Site.

    I heard that. I wonder how they will gain pantheon without easy faith generation? If you are isolated it may be forever before you convert to a religion. I guess this is where certain policies come into play.

    So these guys actually get Founder beliefs of religion in their cities. That's pretty interesting.

    Yes, I'm actually pretty sure it is Great Zimbabwe.

    So there is some way to win a religious victory without founding a religion. Otherwise Kongo would be out for that.

    Edit: he looks really great.
    Edit 2: do all neighborhoods provide food and gold? Or just Kongo's unique ones?

    In the video you can clearly see it is next to Cattle and a Commercial Hub, so it makes a lot of sense that it would be the Great Zimbabwe.

    EDIT: During this shot, cool infantry models for Kongo are also visible.

    Well it is so sick that it is hard to summarize it :)

    I'll try to do it ASAP.

    City model and infantry were both very cool.

    Sounds like a powerful civ geared towards a culture game. I like it! Really excited to play a game as them.

    The most logical assumption is to control the holy city of the most dominant religion of the world. Otherwise kongos only way to found a religion is through Stonehenge.

    UA: M'kisi (?). extra food, gold and production from each relic, artifact and great work of sculpture. Great Merchant and Great Artist points every turn.
    UU: Ngao Mbeba. Requires no iron. No penalty for movement and sight in forests and rainforests. Bonus defense against ranged.
    UI: Mbanza district. Replaces the neighborhood. Available earlier and gives housing, food and gold.
    ULA: can't build holy sites. gains the founder believes for the dominant religion in his empire. Free apostle for every mbanza or theatre district, apostle's religion depends on the city.

    I really like this Civ. Interesting design and i like growth civs.

    I wonder where all the faith comes from without holy sites. How could they win a religion victory, maybe capture someone elses holy city? I like that they have one less district to build!
