Urban Empire in January

A first developer diary video for Urban Empire, the upcoming simulation publisher Kalypso Media and developer Reborn call a "city ruler." They also announce a January 17, 1017 release date and that pre-purchases of the game are now being accepted on Steam, an advance commitment that comes with a 15% discount and a Half Timbered Building Pack with some rustic buildings. Here's word on the game's loose take on politics that puts you in command of a 200 year mayoral dynasty:
In Urban Empire you take control of a mayoral dynasty and lead your city and people through 200 years of history. Establish infrastructures, plan city districts, debate political decisions at the town council, bribe or blackmail your opponents, empower the democratic rights of your people or ignore them and reign supremely by yourself – the decision is yours!

Beginning in the 1820s, establish your city through five different eras, each with its own threats and opportunities. Master the challenges of the centuries, face political struggles, experience world-changing events and pioneering inventions, and create your own unique Urban Empire!

Urban Empire is a city ruler, pioneering a new breed of strategy game that combines city builder features with political scheming and adds profound social and historical events into the mix, creating a whole new gameplay experience where players must employ strategic planning and political savvy to successfully grow their cities in their role as Mayor.

Bleh no thanks. I want to be a god/dictator in a civ/city builder. The last thing I want to do is get tied up with some fictional bureaucracy. The whole point of these sorts of games is that someone can build something the way they want. We see the limitations and drawbacks of bad city/civ design every single day IRL. We game precisely to escape that sort of nonsense for a while.

Either it's a typo or this has the longest development in history...

The dev has a time machine. They wanted to go back and see what it was really like back in 1017.
