Lincity is a city building simulation game. The latest stable version is Version 1.12.1, released on August 13, 2004. It is originally written by I J Peters and licensed under the GPL. It is written in the C programming language.
In Lincity you are a city designer, and have many objects/buildings to create your city out of, though most of the objects require you to research the correct technologies. You must provide jobs, food, and housing to your residents. You can use renewable energy to build a sustainable economy, or build rockets to escape a polluted and starving planet.
