With the Promising Prospects update, Core Engage expands the meadow sandbox map threefold! This added expanse offers more land to explore, new resources to harvest, and the opportunity to construct the steampunk mega-settlement of your dreams.


With the Promising Prospects update, New Cycle introduces both new challenges and opportunities to population management. The basic mechanics of 'aging' were added allowing for a more realistic life-cycle of the inhabitants. Upgrade your kitchen to rediscover long-forgotten delicacies, provide luxurious housing for your citizens, and upgrade dirt paths to paved streets. All these efforts will help maintain high spirits even in the toughest of times.

  • Never lose sight of what's important - Responding to player feedback, developer Core Engage has transitioned from a fixed to a freely adjustable UI, allowing you to position HUD elements wherever you desire for maximum freedom and customization.
  • Stay informed of your surroundings - The Promising Prospects update introduces a minimap to New Cycle, enabling you to survey your surroundings at a glance.
  • Build faster than ever before - Buildings can now be duplicated, eliminating the need to navigate back to the building menu when placing the same structure multiple times.
