Age of Civilizations II is the sequel to the first game ( an Android/iOS exclusive), created by sole Polish game developer Łukasz Jakowski. The game was in development since (possibly) 2016 as Łukasz made a video of the mobile version, playing Luxembourg.

The game had a patch the day after release on Steam as development was (most likely) rushed due to people demanding a sooner release in which Łukasz normally responded to with "When it's ready."

Unused Graphics

Unused graphics are present that depict religious symbols, a feature that is (currently) absent from the game. According to this forum post, this was common knowledge.

All symbols are (primarily) white against a transparent background.
