Ridiculous History is set in a strategy simulation world where you're in control. If you want to research explosives before you even have paper currency, go right ahead! You alone decide the fate of your civilization. Will you thrive and become prosperous or will your empire starve and be forgotten in a few short decades?

The goal of ridiculous history is to get as many points as possible by the year 2015. If your whole population is wiped out before 2015, you lose. The game starts in the year zero. The current game year is indicated next to a clock in the lower left. You can advance time forward by clicking any of the various speed buttons. Pause, normal speed, x4 speed, and x8 speed are all available. You can also pause by hitting the space bar.

Additonal help and instructions can be found in game.
