    What is this?

    C7 (working title) is an in-development 4X strategy game with a historical focus inspired by games such as Civilization, Galactic Civilizations, and Humankind. We aim to create a new game that looks and plays like classic Civ but incorporates features from the best of the genre and our own dreams.

    At this stage, C7 is not yet a fully playable game, but becomes a little bit closer every month. Take the latest release for a spin, leave some feedback, and follow this forum for updates. User discussion happens here at CivFanatics, development activity happens on GitHub, and a bit of both happen on Discord.

    The current release is an early pre-alpha with basic engine mechanics and artwork, and is available from the project homepage at c7-game.github.io. We will be making periodic releases that introduce new and improved mechanics, graphics, mod capabilities, and more.

    For now, an installation of Sid Meier's Civilization III Complete (or Conquests) is required for art assets.

    How to get involved

    Find the project interesting enough you'd like to contribute? See the Contributing Page on our Wiki for more information!

    At the moment, additional developer bandwidth is probably the most-needed asset, but all sorts of help (art, writing, project management, sheep-herding) could be useful.

    Technical stuff

    C7 is an MIT-licensed open-source, iteratively developed, cross-platform 2D 4X strategy game built with the Godot Engine and C#. The project was conceived by several users at CivFanatics but is open to anyone who is interested and able to contribute. We are developing C7 with Civ3 in mind, redesigned from the ground up with new features to support enhanced modding, improved graphics, and modern systems.

    NES/FG/SF Activity:Arguing the toss
    This really is impressive and exciting. Would you, or the "team" consider being supported through Patreon etc?

    The lone and level sands
    We've tossed a few funding ideas around, and Patreon's not a bad one (I have a great deal of Wall Street-esque experience, and wanted to try a 501(c)(3) - not-for-profit corp -approach; but so it goes.)

    ... On the other hand, our devs ( :satan: ) seem to already off to the races ... :coffee:

    Aside from all that - Welcome to the team! :grouphug:
