MMORTS (Massively Multiplayer Online Real Time Strategy) games, especially the more sophisticated ones like Caesary, Evony and others, usually mean lots of time commitment, and require great attention to detail to the flow of money, lumber, soldiers and building. Handling a city in Caesary is nothing like playing SimCity or Age of Empires. Economics, inhabitants, religion, prestige, honor, and many more factors are at work to hamper the play-and-put-down look of the game from a non-experienced gamer.
Caesary is a great city building game that puts you in control of your own ancient city with a Romanesque style theme. The basic goals are to build structures for your citizens and other buildings that enable you to develop an army. This is no easy task and it’s a constant struggle to keep the balance between accumulation of resources and expansion of army. Since everybody will have an army, the situation requires players unite to form their own league. Together with a league, players can battle other leagues for control of the whole Roman world!
The in-depth level of resource management gives players a taste of what it really feels like to have control. You will have shortages and surpluses, find bonuses, require extra labor be devoted to extracting a certain resource and even implement special items to raise productivity. Many real time strategy games have only a few set resources that work only to advance your army and city building. Not in Caesary, which embraces the reality of an army that is dependent on resources, so players may find themselves often discouraged from launching too many campaigns lest see their city's economy flounder.
This makes it hard for players to amass huge armies for attacking opponents with impunity - if your economy tanks during expeditions, you won't have enough goods to support defenses, upgrade buildings and all things necessary for sustained growth. In short, Caesary is far from being a military-focused casual game, but a game that really makes you think about 2 things: how to get gain and maintain resources, and what you're doing with your resources. Not all players, especially casual players, will welcome Caesary with open arms, due to this resource micromanagement requirement.
Dragonsmeet has announced that a new Caesary server will launch on September 13th on their game site www.sumopandagames.com.
Caesary, like all of Dragonsmeet’s games, is free-to-play and will not require players to download -- all play data is saved online. It is also free to play, but special items can be purchased via the game's online item mall.
