With its rich and vibrant landscapes, colourful characters and nurturing gameplay, Cultures redefines the genre for Strategy fans, opening it up to a wider audience.
The player must manage resources effectively, trade prosperously and advance cautiously across this wild, unruly terrain. A thriving economy and powerful military will only achieve so much. Success hinges on the player's ability to balance their wider strategic aims with the needs of individual members of the tribe. Each and every one of the game's characters is important to the growth and welfare of their kin - for each and every one of them has their very own mind and unique talents!
The characters will act independently, eating, sleeping and working when they need to. The player cares for their health, happiness and personal development. This ranges from christening each tribe member to developing their skills; ensuring essential resources are available to them, assigning tasks, a home and even a wife. Simultaneously the player must prepare the tribe to advance across America trading, uniting and fighting until they have retrieved the 6 elements of the comet that they believe will restore harmony to their homeland.
Great attention to detail and highly effective AI - Each character is an individual both physically, defined with different clothes, hair and other physical attributes and in terms of their personality. Characters need to eat and sleep, marry, have children and progress through different jobs. This adds to the dynamics of the game play and the attachment the player acquires for his tribesmen
