Discover the New World and fulfill your Manifest Destiny!

The New World lies before you with all its peril, promise, and infinite possibility: your colonists anxiously follow you to shore and the treasures of an entire continent await you. But beware of your enemies! Angry natives and rival powers can encroach upon your territory. You'll have to overcome your foes with superior military strategy and wily diplomacy. Only then can you launch your revolution and declare your independence.

Players control either English, French, Dutch, or Spanish colonists in the New World. This New World can be the historically accurate Americas (North and South) or a randomly generated world with varying resources and challenges. Overseeing economic, military, and political growth, you strive to establish independence from the mother country while competing with other colonies for control of the New World.

Plant a foothold in the New World and establish your independence in Sid Meier’s Colonization!
  • Play either the French, English, Dutch, or Spanish colonial powers, each with distinct characteristics and political situations.
  • Customize your games and choose your own level of difficulty so you never play the same game twice.
  • Designed by Sid Meier, who brought you Alpha Centauri and Civilization!

  1. Old classic
    by Nina Hoyrup, Denmark - Feb 20th 2018

    Very low resolution and simple gameplay but a classic that still keeps me entertained for hours

  2. Sid Meyer`s Colonization
    by Christoph Pfaff, Germany - Oct 5th 2017

    I was a big fan of this game in the mid-nineties and i still like it quite a lot. Of course, it is dated and can`t compare to modern games of the kind, but it is already quite challenging and in depth...two big thumbs up
