Chinese strategy game then? The Three Kingdoms period and the The Seven Warring States.
Elections though? :hmm:

Ah, you're right. Don't see that. Don't see how it can be anything other than a Rome or Ancient Greece game if elections are important. 
It is far better for the truth to tear my flesh to pieces, then for my soul to wander through darkness in eternal damnation.

Jet: So what kind of woman is she? What's Julia like?
Faye: Ordinary. The kind of beautiful, dangerous ordinary that you just can't leave alone.
Jet: I see.
Faye: Like an angel from the underworld. Or a devil from Paradise.

That would explain the 'terrain' hint... desert planet vs. ocean planet vs. rocky planet, etc.

Maybe their thinking is, "People were asking for a proper new SimCity after the EA game bombed, and we gave it to them. Let's see if we can do the same with Alpha Centauri."

Main difference being, of course, that Cities Skylines was developed by a third party and not in house.

Hint #7: This is a project we've always dreamt about doing, something all of PI have been involved in, not just the PDS developers.


I do seem to recall that Johan always said that he'd never do a sci-fi game, right?
