Powercity 9000 - city building game

Powercity 9000 is the first game that I’m developing (first game that has a demo).
It’s (very) basic right now: you can build a city in “creative” mode, in an isometric world. It’s being developed in Monogame, and I learned a lot with it.


  • Tiles/objects modding support
  • Isometric pixel art
  • Creative mode
  • A minimap
  • Bugged walking people in your city (if the setting is on)
  • Many tiles/objects to choose from

known problems in the latest version:

  • People are bugged in this version. You can disable people in the gameplay menu.
  • No in-game menu yet.
  • Water needs a new texture system. (water is transparent on the edges, but it’s actually only necessary when placed near other tiles that aren’t water.
  • Worlds get glitchy when loading a save after adding tiles/objects in the text file for modding. (Glitching doesn’t happen when adding the new object/tile at the end of the (text) modding file.)

Current version
alpha v1.2.1

Thanks! I know it’s not much yet but I’m trying to polish the game first. I don’t want it to be a game full of content, but glitchy as hell :wink:

Thank you! My goal is to make a “survival”-mode or campaign where you need to manage your resources.

The UI is cool af by the way. Well done

Thanks, you are actually one of the first people to make a comment about the UI, so I didn’t know if it would fit in.
And thank you for the follow!

I updated the game. It’s mostly an update that optimizes the game, so not much. I also added bad/basic controller support and some other things.
