If you didn’t know already, civilisation is one of those games that seems to last far longer than you expected it to. I know too many players that have looked at the clock to be shocked that their game has taken them well into the early hours of the morning with no signs of the game wrapping up anytime soon.
This is what happened to one civilisation player but on an extreme level. His game had been ongoing for 10 years. 10 real life years of hell. The game had gone on for so long that the latest game in the series at the time was Civ III, and we now have Civ 6.
He hasn’t been playing the game non-stop since it started, but instead has played it on and off during downtime between playing other games. Even so, he managed to reach the year 3991 AD, and his world has become a nightmarish place.
The player, named on Reddit as Lycerius, started his game on Civilization II back in 2002. Here are some of the interesting things that happened during his game since then.
The Ice Caps Melted (A Lot)
This is a serious concern in modern day society, and it’s something that’s potentially only just around the corner. In Lycerius’ game, the ice caps had melted 20 times by the time the game had reached 3991.
