The year is 1849, and gold has just been discovered in California. You decide to head out west, to seek fame and wealth in the approaching Gold Rush.

Will you strike gold and become an overnight mining magnate? Or will you build your fortune bit by bit by supplying 49ers with pickaxes and blue jeans?

1849 is a city management game set during the California Gold Rush. Your task is to build towns, populate them with workers, and make sure that they are housed, fed, and entertained. You’ll have to manage and coordinate extensive production and trade networks to make sure your towns thrive.

• A campaign mode that traces the development of the Gold Rush from mining camps to bustling cities. Each city scenario presents players with unique starting conditions, victory goals, and obstacle events.
• Sandbox mode with a procedurally-generated map for your location, based on geography (from the Pacific coast to the Sierra Nevada mountains), precipitation, resource availability, and starting lot size.
• Vivid old west towns with buildings lining the streets directly inspired by California’s Gold Country.
• Over 50 resources that players can dig up, farm, refine or manufacture as they build complex towns and cities.

1849: Nevada Silver
The California Gold Rush—been there, done that. By 1859, Northern Nevada was the place to be after a deep vein of silver was discovered under the mountains. Grab your pickaxe, hearty prospector, and mosey on over to the Comstock Lode where new fortune awaits in 1849: Nevada Silver.

Technological advances and lessons learned from the Gold Rush make the Nevada Silver Expansion Pack a rewarding new arena for 1849 players. With trains moving goods between distant cities, steam-powered mills boosting production, and more complex mining processes yielding deeply hidden riches, 1849: Nevada Silver expands on 1849’s
addictive simulation gameplay to provide more challenge on a bustling new frontier.

• Builds on 1849’s simulation gameplay with added difficulty
• Six new Nevada city scenarios, from frontier outposts to bustling boom towns, plus sandbox mode
• Train-based trading system adds a new strategic dimension
• New buildings, mines, and resources based on the industry and technology of the era

  2. 1849 strikes gold
    by Batavorn, Netherlands - Mar 24th 2016

    1849 is a simple but enjoyable city builder set during the California gold rush. You are tasked with building a town for your miners and producing and trading various goods while dealing with crime and natural disasters. The graphics are cartoony and cute and the game is easily controlled with the mouse.

    This gold edition contains both a major dlc (Nevada silver) and comes with both a drm free download and a Steam key making it a very good buy.
