Gold - Children of the Nile

The holiday gold rush continues, as Tilted Mill Entertainment announces that Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile has gone gold (thanks Frans), and this city construction game from the creators of Pharaoh is expected in stores on November 9. Here's a bit:

In Immortal Cities, you assume the role of Pharaoh, divinely appointed by the gods to lead the people of ancient Egypt, uniting them as you elevate your status and strive to become a supreme and god-like ruler. You design and build glorious cities in which hundreds of seemingly real people live and work in an interconnected societal web, each facet of their lives played out in vivid detail.

like a huge virtual egyptian empire

did you play any Pharaoh? i'm a big fan of ancient egyptian history, and that game was really cool. it was such an awesome feeling to sit back and look at a city that i spent 3 or 4 hours developing... watching the people going about their lives when i finally had everything fine-tuned enough to just sit back and let the place run itself for a while. it's like: "I did it... I built this... everyone is happy, my approval rating is high, we're prosperous and invincible and the city is beautiful to look at." man, what a sense of accomplishment. it something that i never got from reading Wilbur Smith's books, or Christian Jacq's books, or watching The Mummy or Stargate, even though i love all f those things.

and i'm *really* excited that i should have my kick-ass new P3.2 system built just in time to install this game! newegg shipped my stuff yesterday, i should have it all by thursday or friday!!! man, HL2 and CotN should play great...
