Decade-long Civ II game mired in 1700 years of nuclear war | Ars Technica
The year is 3991 AD, and the world's three remaining nations have been embroiled in military conflict for 1700 years. 90 percent of the world's peak population has died due to nuclear conflict, and Vikings wield ICBMs. Welcome to the future, as predicted by a 10-year-long game of Civilization II. |
Reddit user Lycerius posted about his decade-old Civ II game in the gaming subreddit early Tuesday morning, describing a world where the Vikings, Celts, and Americans are locked in an endless war (disclosure: Reddit is a cousin site of Ars). In the post, Lycerius explains that he was already well into the simulated future in this game when Civ III came out, but wanted to see just how far the game could go and what the world might look like as the simulation continued.
