Citalis is a fast paced city simulation game where you get to build your own city from scratch.



You have been granted a loan of 10,000,000$ to invest in building your own city and you are left with only 3,000$. You must use this money to start building your city and generate the income you need to keep up with your rising loan repayments.

Using Commercial, Residential and Park districts you must balance all the core aspects of a happy and successful city- such as building businesses, housing, monitoring water levels and ensuring the city remains beautiful at all times.

But beware, if your city becomes unhappy your businesses will start partaking in criminal activity leading them to to be shut down. Failure to monitor water levels may lead to a drought to stop the city functioning properly or a flood to destroy housing, landscaping and roads.

But most importantly, make sure to keep up with your daily repayments. Falling behind leads to bankruptcy and ultimate failure so you must ensure your city is functioning properly at all times. The pace of change can be fast- do you think you can survive?

Hey, I'd love to play this game! Unfortunately the page doesn't seem to have any download links.

Sorted :) Sorry about that!

Would you consider letting me buy the raw .love file? That would get you cross-platform support for free...

I like the concept, but as it is right now, the days pass by too quickly for me to make any headway. Since the amount of debt keeps piling up each day, each upgrade or park addition hurts. I can get a couple businesses and upgrades, but I can't make it past day 10.

Also, is there ever a need for more than one reservoir in a district? Water never seemed to decrease.

Thank you for your feedback!
My advice would be to make sure that you have enough money to make the next days payment before building any new blocks/upgrades. However, a couple of businesses shoud leave you in a good position by day 10. Are you building enough housing? Businesses don't make as much money without adequate housing because of a lack of workers.
Yes, multiple resevoirs are needed as your population increases. The population only increases with sufficient housing/jobs so again, lack of housing maybe? It is definitely win-able!
I've added an easy mode in the last update which will hopefully help getting a hang of the game!
Please feel free to email me with any other questions, hope this helped :)
