CivCity: Rome, a new PC game inspired by the world of Sid Meier’s Civilization, is soon to be released.

A game in which every effort has been made to stay as true as possible to historical source material, CivCity: Rome invites players to zoom-in on life in the great cities of the Roman Empire, culminating in Rome itself.
Your task is to recreate the glory of Rome by building a small settlement into a mighty imperial city.
Using your skills as a tactician and strategist, you must nurture your city through good times and bad to ultimately produce the greatest city on the planet as you endeavour to lead the Roman Empire from its humble beginnings to its mighty zenith.
Featuring hundreds of buildings including gladiatorial schools, amphitheatres, the circus maximus, legionnaire forts, weapons workshops and much more, CivCity: Rome offers the most detailed look at Roman life ever depicted on a computer screen.
The game contains many of the features which users will know from the Civilization series, including research, wonders, production and culture, as well as a whole new way to enjoy the Civilization experience.

• Look inside the buildings: For the first time in a city builder you can look inside the villas, the forums, and even the Roman baths! Discover, in much greater detail, how the Romans went about their daily lives. • Civilize your city: More than 70 technologies can be developed over time to give your city a strategic advantage. Use the research tree to improve many aspects of your city and its relation to the wider empire. • Follow the life of a Roman family: Do they thrive and prosper from humble hut to noble palace as they move through the generations…or not? The decisions you make influence city life at every level. • Ease of play: Driven purely by building placement and strong visual feedback, the game lets you create your own living community simply by choosing and placing a wide variety of buildings. • Real Romans: An intriguing array of characters will interact with you and bring high drama to your city with their emotions, state of health, and candid feelings about their lives. There will even be famous Romans in the city who will comment on and present new challenges for you. • Build mighty wonders: Influence the direction of your city by building spectacular monuments. Production of these trophy buildings will give your city big advantages and make it look great too! • This is your Rome: Customize your city the way you see fit. With hundreds of buildings to place, this game offers more options than any other city building game. • Learn a little history and have loads of fun doing it: A wealth of humorous, scary and downright disgusting facts await the curious mind in the instructive and factual ‘CityPedia’, that can be easily accessed within the gameplay experience. It’s a virtual encyclopaedia of facts about life in Roman times at your finger tips. • Never a dull moment: Gladiatorial combat, debates in the senate, chariot races, temple ceremonies…just a few of the many riveting scenes that will engage and entertain players throughout the game.
