From the ancient times, cultivators devoted their lives to achieve immortality and protect the world from ancient dangers. They gathered around sects, institutions to train their bodies, minds and souls to be worth eternal life. The Taiyi Sect, one of the most important cultivation schools in the Empire, has been destroyed. Its ashes permeate the wind, announcing a turbulent and dark era. However, it is still possible to restore the balance between good and evil. All is up to you.


Gamera Game and GSQ Games are pleased to announce that Amazing Cultivation Simulator, the acclaimed strategy game inspired by Chinese mythology and fantasy literature, will be finally available tomorrow for English-speaking players around the world!

After an Early Access period during which the game has sold over 700,000 copies only in China, the game moves to full release with a brand new localization. It's coming to Steam with a final price of $24.99/€20.00. Almost at the same time, users will be able to enjoy its first DLC, Deep in the Bamboo Forest, free for the players who purchase the game before 4 PM (Pacific Time).


Review keys are still available. Start your path to immortality!



Set in the Tiancang era, Amazing Cultivation Simulator brings to you the magic of Asian mythology through a strategy game with strong xianxia nuances, a Chinese literary genre which is deeply influenced by Taoist and Buddhist concepts, as well as folklore and traditional knowledge on medicine and martial arts. The gameplay is inspired by famous games like Rimworld and Dwarf Fortress, as well as The Legend of Shushan Swordsman and Martial Kingdoms.

As a grandmaster, you’ll bring the Taiyi Sect back to its glory days by training new apprentices, gathering knowledge and expand your domain through commerce and political alliances to gain influence over other sects. Also, you must protect people from supernatural dangers such as bad spirits, monsters and enchanted artifacts.




  • Design your own Cultivation sect from scratch until it becomes a huge spiritual center.
  • Manage your school and students so they are happy and productive for you.
  • Expand your domains and meet new allies to become more powerful than other sects.
  • Commerce and interact with other NPCs, but be careful – your actions will impact their behavior!
  • Keep the balance between good and evil.
  • Research and fill your library with more and more sources of mystic knowledge, martial arts, medicine…
  • Search for the most powerful relics and artifacts.
  • Hunt evil beasts and demons that want to destroy the world you want to protect.
  • Also, pet your animal companions, such as dogs, panda bears or dragons. No matter what, they'll be there for you!
  • Live unique playthroughs every time: maps are randomly generated for each run.
  • Learn about Chinese myths and legends, as well as spiritual traditions which draw from Taoism and Buddhism.
