Hi there, I’m JimmySnails, creator of Cytopia.


Cytopia is a free, open source, retro, pixel-art city building game, focusing mainly on mods. It utilizes a custom isometric rendering engine entirely written in C++, based on SDL2.

I've started working on Cytopia almost a year ago. The project grew and we now have 4 graphics artists, an Sound Designer and lots of people helping out the project out in other ways.

For now, i'm still the only developer, so we're looking for someone to join the team and help us with coding.

Our team mostly corresponds and collaborates via discord. Here is the link to our server:

Here’s a video showing our game (currently a tech preview) in action:

Notable Features:

- lots and lots of awesome custom tiles (terrain, buildings, and so on) by our very skilled team of graphics artists
- a great custom soundtrack by our very own, highly talented Music Artist MB22
- Save / Load Game functionality (including ZLib compression)
- macOS support
- TileDate Editor
- Terrain Editing
- JSON based GameData and custom UI

Remember, it’s still an early tech demo, but it shows Cytopias potential.

If you're interested in technical details, follow our devblogs on r/Cytopia or on our website at https://community.cytopia.net

But wait, there’s big plans for future updates and we’re already working on the realisation with dedication.

So this is what we have in mind:
- Procedural Terrain Generation
- Different “ages” for your city to go through
- Day and night cycle
- Gameplay mechanics
- In-Game Mod downloading mechanism
- Android / iOS support
- Scripting language for mods (like LUA).

So stay tuned on the news and ideas on our homepage: https://www.cytopia.net, or take a peek at our youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJIzKBD3wl6KRohiX6i53GA

We’re constantly looking for developers, graphics artists or someone who writes texts (like devblogs) for us. So if you’re interested in pitching in yourself, become a part of the team, showing off your skills, share some ideas and help shape the future of Cytopia be welcome to join our Discord server https://discord.gg/qwa2H3G We’d be very glad to have you.

If you’re not a developer, but just interested in our progress and like to follow our discussions, feel free to join our Discord server as well, or take a look at our GitHub page.


Now enjoy the game, have a great experience. Like, share, spread the word.

Thank you so much for being with us.
