A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Epicinium is a strategy game where nature is a finite resource. Is it worth winning a war when you end up conquering nothing but dirt and ash?
- Multiplayer battles with up to 8 players in free-for-all
- Versus-AI skirmish matches, featuring several AIs with different strategies
- Ranked and unranked matchmaking modes
- An easy-to-use map editor
Epicinium is handcrafted to bring you a fresh strategic experience:
- Well-balanced selection of buildings and units to produce, each with their carefully crafted part to play
- Global warming system, inducing a multitude of different weather effects adding to gameplay depth and variety
- A variety of maps, each with their own character, layout and intended playstyle
Thanks to fast, simultaneous turns, you don't waste time waiting for your move. Your economy and troops are influenced by the environment and increasingly severe weather effects. Players balance firepower and preservation of resources, as the victor is scored for how much nature remains when the dust settles.

I use MX-15 Debian Jessie 32 bit.
Thanks for the information that it is a 64 bit game.
That's why I know I don't need to download it.
This reduces download traffic, saves me time
and saves my nerves.
Hello, I think this game is good, Do you have any plans to add anything or is this kinda a dead project? also if you do add anything will there ever be the ability to blow up mountains?
Hi! This game was finished and released two years ago, and has received a number of patches post-launch. There are Steam mods that allow destroying mountains, if you're into that.
this is great me and my friends been having much fun
great game i love the way it is not a generic turn based strategy with the weather and very nice graphics
