You are in 1870s. The New World and Asia are divided among the European colonizers. There is only one continent, which mysterious depths still have never witnessed the presence of any European traveler. But everything will change very soon. The Scramble for Africa is just about to start. 8 PLAYABLE GREAT POWERS Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium and even Russia. COLONIAL RIVALRY One province can be simultaneously colonized by two or more powers - but there can be only one winner. ECONOMY AND DEVELOPMENT When you build new plantations and mines, you increase your income. When you build schools, hospitals, railways and cultural institutions, you increase the growth of your colonial influence, thus earning even more legitimate moral rights for further expansion! GOALS OF THE GAME The game goes until the 20s of the 20th century, and when the time is over, the results are summed up. There is no any strict final goal in the game - you define your goal by yourself. Conquer the whole continent? Banish everyone from Central Africa, playing as Germany? Or maybe suddenly emerge on the continent as Russia? HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF… but not always and not in exact way Virtual Africa lives its life: you will encounter a large number of events - both historical and random. All your actions and choices have consequences!
