Techage represents five technological ages
- Iron Age (TA1) - simple tools like coal pile, coal burner, gravel sieve, hammer for getting ores and making goods
- Steam Age (TA2) - Simple machines that are powered by steam engines and drive axles
- Oil Age (TA3) - More modern machines that are powered by electricity. The electricity is generated by coal & oil power plants. The oil must be explored, extracted and transported.
- Present (TA4) - Electricity from renewable energy sources such as sun and wind.
- Future (TA5) - Machines to overcome space and time, new sources of energy and other achievements.
Since the levels build on each other, all ages have to be run through one after the other
