German publisher and developer Publisher Assemble Entertainment and game developer Sphere Games UG have announced the release of the Age and Education update for their sci-fi city builder Sphere: Flying Cities, available for PC on Steam and GOG.
The new content features the aging of the citizens of the flying city, as well as a fully fledged education system, meaning that higher education is available to everyone.
The new life cycles add an element of realism to the sci-fi simulation, as citizens age through various stages of life, bringing with them all the triumphs and troubles that come with time, including the cycles of birth and death. Similarly, citizens of a flying city who are interested in expanding their population must meet certain reproduction requirements. Luckily for the new busy parents, it’s now possible to build a Kindergarten.
Residents can now take part in educational programs that allow them to learn skills and develop new skills through the new “Learning Center”. Having educated citizens means higher efficiency, better buildings, and more.
The update also introduces an overhauled energy management system, as well as many new buildings, including a learning center, kindergarten, and energy storage.
