LinCity-NG is a city building game that is the successor to and fork of LinCity. It is being developed by members of the Happypenguin's Game of the Month project.[1]The stable latest version of the game is 1.1.2 released on November 4, 2007. The latest unstable release is 2.0 released on January 25th, 2009.[2] It used the SDL library.[3]


You are a city designer and have many objects and buildings with which to build your city out of. To obtain new possible buildings and industries you will need to increase your tech levels. This is achieved by building 'monuments' and later 'schools' and 'universities'.

Winning the game requires managing the city until it reaches sustainable development or is evacuated via spaceship. There is also a scenario, where you take over a city with all sorts of disasters.

The only way to lose the game is if your citizens die out due to pollution or starvation.
