iOS, Android, PC/Mac •
Back in September, Czech Games Edition did what we’ve been waiting nearly 4 years for them to do: they released Through the Ages for iOS and Android. To say it managed to live up to the hype would be an understatement, as I still can’t get enough of picking Michelangelo even though I have no temples or wonders producing happiness. WHY DO I DO IT EVERY TIME? While the mobile version is about as polished as the underside of András Hadik’s horse, CGE did tell us that they were hoping to release on Steam, eventually, as well. It’s not out on Steam yet, but the beta is starting soon and signups are open.
As we should all know by now, Through the Ages is the port of the similarly named civ-building board game by designer Vlaada Chvátil. The game throws you into the shoes of an ancient leader with a civilization that can barely make its own food and, over the course of many hours, expects you to craft it into a 21st century juggernaut.
We have no idea when the Steam version is going to go live, but we were informed that beta signups are available right now for those of us who want to play TtA on every device we own. The signups are here and appear to be for both Windows and Mac users. I’m already signed up and hoping I have a lot of other Stately Players [he did it again? -ed.] to battle while sitting at my laptop.
Again, the page to sign up for the PC/Mac beta can be found right here. What are you waiting for?
