Rise of Venice Closed Beta

Kalypso Media invites players to apply for closed beta testing of Rise of Venice, the upcoming strategy/trading simulation set in the waterlogged city during the Renaissance. This is not some sort of vast test, as they say they are only seeking 50 testers, and those interested can sign up on this page. To qualify one must have a Kalypso board account a Steam account and meet the minimum system requirements, which call for Windows with a version number lower than 95. Here's word on the game, which is expected this autumn:

This is where your story begins. As a young man striving for success, power and wealth and with the support of your family, you begin to build up a trading empire across Genoa, Tripoli, Rome, Alexandria, and Constantinople in addition to many other significant cities from the Renaissance. As you progress through the ranks of Venetian society, increasing your power with smart trading moves and calling in the occasional favour, you can begin to assemble your own fleet. With this you will start to build up new production facilities and test yourself in challenging sea battles where you will face off against pirates as well as political enemies.
