As we have already said, we are working on Mare Nostrum – Empires but it will not be possible to ship the game in November. We are doing our best in order to be able to ship games to Europe at the beginning of January. ASYNCRON’s goal is to have the game for the International Games Festival in Cannes. To let you know how is going our work, here is some information about the Mare Nostrum final box.
In Mare Nostrum you lead one of the 5 civilizations that influenced the antic Mediterranean history. You start with 3 provinces, some buildings (cities, caravans, markets and temples), and the support of the hero of your civilization. From this basis, you will have to raise your nation to an Empire.
Mare Nostrum is a strategic game. You have to plan the best strategies to reach your goals. Win the game by either recruiting 5 heroes and/or wonders, or building the pyramids, or controlling 4 capitals and/or legendary cities, or by extending your influence on the 3 main fields of Mare Nostrum: commercial, political, and military.
But Mare Nostrum is also a game about equilibrium where each player’s actions will impact all the civilizations’ strategies. Be careful in order to prevent the danger and catch any opportunity!
