A new Intro to Basics
is now available for Aggressor: Ancient Rome, Slitherine's strategy
game that's planned for release tomorrow
. This is a brief tutorial that starts with the roots of the project
with an introduction to the 4X genre as well as specifics about this game. The
clip comes along with the following details that include a Latin lesson:
necesse est ("We need to sail"). The Mediterrean Sea is in great turmoil:
Carthage's merchant kingdom dominates the coasts of Africa and Spain, as well as
Sardinia, but a new power is rising. In the Tiber valley, Rome is discovering
its imperial vocation, and in Sicily the frictions with Carthage are eventually
bound to spark one of the wildest wars of ancient age.
Si vis pacem, para bellum ("if you want peace, be ready for war").
Aggressors: Ancient Rome, a very deep and multi-faceted 4X strategy game, is set
in this troubled period with two powerful kingdoms clash for control of the
known world. You can command Rome and expand into the Mediterranean, or rewrite
history and lead the armies of Carthage undefeated across Europe. Or choose one
of the other 18 factions - including Ptolemaic Egypt, Sparta, Celts, Bosforan
and Pontus kingdom - for a yet more testing and demanding challenge.
Frangar non flectar ("I can be broken, but I will never bend down"). In
this short video you can see how the basic mechanisms of Aggressors work. A good
way to understand how to build cities, create and move units, and a quick
overview for economic, political and diplomatic actions. In Aggressors: Ancient
Rome, all will be under your command. Vae Victis!
