"Imperium Romanum": Pompeii screenshots published!

7th December 2007

Today, Kalypso Media Group is publishing three new screenshots of the upcoming strategy title "Imperium Romanum". These screenshots are showing the historical town of Pompeii, which is located in the Gulf of Naples and was destroyed after the volcanic eruption of the Mount Vesuvius in 79 A. D.

In "Imperium Romanum", the map of Pompeii offers a special challenge, as the volcano Vesuvius is considered to be extremely unstable.  Again and again, the player has to deal with unpredictable earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, so that the successful accomplishment of this scene becomes one of the most difficult missions to complete the game.

"Imperium Romanum" will be published by the Kalypso Group in the German, English and French speaking territories by the end of February 2008. It is already considered to be one of the top PC-strategy games of the first quarter of next year.
