Take the future of an empire into your hands in "Imperium Romanum", the upcoming historical strategy title from Kalyspso Media and Haemimont Games. Due for release in February 2008 the game sees the player take the role of a governor of a Roman province and strive to build a well organised, prosperous and commanding settlement.
Set in the time-honoured Roman Empire players will marvel at the incredible attention to detail, as they construct fortifications, build towers, gates and bridges, and pay for them with the new currency which has been implemented into the game for a challenging, enjoyable, and authentic quest to rule the World.
"Imperium Romanum" boasts a variety of new features to enhance the game-play and complete the historical strategy gaming experience. These include a sophisticated graphics engine, a mass of authentic historical buildings such as the world famous Circus Maximus and Gladiator schools, an improved battle system where the player commands their armies and an interactive mission mode which allows the player to control the activation of goals.
