Big Update! The Six Wonders of They Are Billions

Greetings!

Here’s the teaser video we’ve prepared to announce The Six Wonders. Hope you like it!

The Six Wonders are the biggest and most amazing ones you can build for the colony. But, as mighty as they are, they’re also really expensive to build. Tons of resources are required for both researching and building them. In return, they grant very special features to the colony, and also increase the final score with extra victory points.

You can only build one of each kind in the same map. Building all of them can be challenging or almost impossible, but that’s part of the strategy. If you have the resources to build just one, chose carefully which will suit your colony best, given the current map, your resources production…

The Lightning Spire

This portentous structure reaches toward the sky, capturing the energy of lightning for the colony. In addition, it extends the power supply, acting as a huge Tesla Tower.

  • Energy Supply: +800
  • Energy Transfer Radius: 30
  • Victory Points: +1500

The Atlas Transmutator

No one knows how it works, but this extraordinary and smoky metal spawn is capable of transforming common materials into precious oil.

  • Oil Supply: +40 (by transmutating 20 wood, 20 stone and 10 iron).
  • Victory Points: +2000

 

The Victorious

This unbreakable bunker stands as the most amazing symbol of the victory of humanity against the infected. It’s a beacon of hope and courage for everyone in the colony.

  • Colonists Hope: +20% gold generation for the surrounding dwellings.
  • Unbreakable: Defenses Life 8000, Armor 10.
  • Victory Points: +2000

 

The Academy of Immortals

In this glorious academy, the most famous heroes train the army to battle with the skills and courage of experienced veteran soldiers.

  • All army units and new units trained are veteran.
  • Victory Points: +1000

 

The Crystal Palace

This magnificent architectural wonder generates its own climate control environment, where the best crops bloom and thrive, feeding the colony even in the most barren lands.

  • Food Supply +800 on any terrain.
  • Victory Points: +1500

 

The Silent Beholder

It’s the most precise and complex machine ever created. The Beholder is installed on top of the Command Center revealing the entire map. Nothing can escape its prodigious eye.

  • Reveals all the map and enemies permanently.
  • Victory Points: +1500

Finally, here goes a screenshot to show you how the Wonders look in the colony:

New Version 0.8

Of course, all the new features we talked about in our last update are now available: Flat mode (F4), World Capture (F10), the new 30 Mayors, Italian language, the new balancing tweaks, and much more.

By the way, as the Flat Mode has proven to be very helpful, we’ve improved how it’s activated. In addition to using the F10 key, you can use any extra button you have on your mouse, other than the left and right ones, to activate this. For example, you can use the central button that is usually available by pressing the wheel.

What’s Next?

Now, we want to put most of our workforce into developing the campaign and finishing the game. In the meantime, some of the new campaign content may be added to the Survival Mode, such as new map themes, new infected… and new features.

As many players have requested, we’ll improve the frequency of our updates to two or three weeks at most. We’ll share more about how the development is going, and tell you, the players, more about They Are Billions.

We hope you like this new update! Looking forward to watching those mega screenshots of your colonies with your amazing wonders.

See you soon!

Wonderful update - really love those designs! Also like that you‘ll keep us informed about the campaign - speaking of which: you once wrote that the release is early spring. As that has passed could you say whether it is to be expected to be released in spring at all or summer?

In the video it says The victorious will give 8000 life to defenses but you wrote 800 in your post - which is correct?

    8,000 is the correct number.

This update changed my worker count on a previous game, putting me at a negative 160+ workers. Did the amount of workers given from houses, or a certain building cost more in terms of workers?
