In the depth of the ocean, hidden in overgrown stones for years, the Techs unleash their ultimate power: The geothermal energy generation. The most powerful tool of the future forces the world of 2070 to expand their explorations into the deep blue sea. Becoming the focus of gameplay, underwater plateaus offer new industries, large production chains, and formerly unknown resources.
This success elevates the Techs to a new level: The Genius Population. They assert themselves even over the sea surface. Impressive monuments, various new buildings, and recent demands strengthen their position. Underwater exploration and exploitation will require you to take advantage of your environment mastering a brand new resource, and using both diplomacy and trade as your most powerful weapons to make your civilization thrive in this hostile environment.
Set amongst isolated islands, you will have to conquer remaining stretches of land and dive underwater to create a futuristic submerged industry supporting your expanding economy. To nurture your supremacy, build new buildings, erect monuments, open power plants, exploit exclusive energy fonts, and develop underwater trading routes.
