Update 1.9 for the space colony management game Imagine Earth is here. This patch features several new contents, including two new game modes and a new planet, among others.

The Xrathul Planet is a new planet that players can go to in Imagine Earth. Located in Udoxia Galaxy, a brand new mission awaits players on Omicron Persei 9, where they might have to explore some strange building complexes. Word has it that these can release powerful forces. What are the dangers that lie ahead?

Update 1.9 also introduces two new game modes. The first is called Sci-Fi Mode and, as the name implies, will treat players to an experience of what would likely happen in the colonization of space. In this mode, players can use technology that people can only dream of today.

The second new game mode is called Serious Mode. Unlike the previous one where players will have futuristic tech at their disposal, Serious Mode is more grounded in its approach. That’s because technology is limited to what’s available in the 21st century. Furthermore, instead of engaging in futuristic intergalactic space trade, Serious Mode is focused on solving issues similar to what’s happening in the real world, such as resource consumption, economic growth, and environmental impacts of climate change.
