OverviewOverview

The Eternal Cylinder is a strategy game where you survive by evolving your creatures to adapt to the environment. Your herd explore a strange world filled with exotic lifeforms and environments. All the while a menacing firey cylinder rolls towards you.

What's unusual, apart from the strange cylindrical impending doom, is the scope and breadth of the world. Like the classic evolution game, Spore, it's a vast land full of unique intelligent animals, real-time world destruction, and organic exploration with puzzles design to encourage you to overcome hazards, enemies and challenges in unique ways.

To succeed, you need to find other creatures to band together with, learn about the world around you, evolve to meet the challenges and mutate to obtain new traits that might help.

The world is teeming with over 30 handcrafted creatures that you need to get to know and learn how to utilise their behaviours to your advantage. This genetic pool combines with over 50 mutations that grant new abilities.
