City/country development simulation game

You are required to build and maintain a city. You must feed, house, provide jobs and goods for your residents. You can build a sustainable economy with the help of renewable energy and recycling, or you can go for broke and build rockets to escape from a pollution ridden and resource starved planet. It's up to you. Due to the finite resources available in any one place, this is not a game that you can leave for long periods of time. This package provides files common to both the X and SVGALIB versions of the game. To get the actual game binary, install either lincity-x or lincity-svgalib (or both).
