What is technology? Edit

Technology refers to items that can be researched for resources that unlock new abilities, units and buildings. All tribes except for the Luxidoor and Aquarion tribes start with a technology already unlocked.


The Bardur tech tree.

The cost to research a new technology increases as more cities are added to a tribe's empire. Tier One technologies start at 5 resources, Tier Two technologies at 6, and Tier Three at 7. For each city, the cost of Tier One technologies increases by 1, Tier Two by 2, and Tier Three by 3.

To access the Tech Tree to research technology, tap the blue beaker at the bottom of the screen. If you can currently afford a technology, the button will glow blue. If not, it will be black.

Tier One Technologies Edit

Tier One technologies are the first ones that players can research, and cost 5 resources at one city.

Tier Two Technologies Edit

Tier Two technologies can be researched after the Tier One technology of the branch is researched, and cost 6 resources at one city.

Tier Three Technologies Edit

Tier Three technologies are the last that players can research, and cost 7 resources at one city.

Orientation Edit

There are 3 orientations, or categories, of techs: Exploration, Economy, and Military.

Exploration: A tech with the Exploration orientation helps the player explore The Square.

Economy: A tech with the Economy orientation helps the player build up their cities and increase star production.

Military: A tech with the Military orientation unlocks new units and helps the player in combat (such as defense bonuses).

Some techs can have more than one orientation.
