4X roguelike with factory-building twist – Colossal Citadels – Overview

Written by Marcello TBL

Colossal Citadels

A fantasy strategy, featuring turn-based factory building over procedural resource types and tactical auto battles.

Colossal Citadels


Takes place on an uncharted continent of The Infinite Ocean, where islands shift indeterministically. Only an order of Cartographers possesses knowledge of inter-continent navigation, and they decide which civilizations can trade, communicate, or stop existing. Your group got lost while travelling, survived the abyss and perhaps can rebuild society in a completely alien environment, with different laws of magic and architecture.


4X roguelike with factory-building twist. Every worker is a link in a huge chain of war and survival, each one capable of becoming a hero and adding something unique to your victory. Find new resource types, decide which to invest into, and upgrade your town and armies with procedural resources or their combinations.
