Anyone else looking forward to...?
« on: February 21, 2013, 12:31:05 AM »
As far as 2013 is concerned, who else is looking forward to the release of Longbow Games' Hegemony Rome, or is at least keeping an eye on its development?  :D

I quite enjoy Hegemony Gold, a solid game in spite of any minor issues I may have with it at times, and I feel Rome will surpass it in content and refinement quite nicely.

I just wish they'd release some further info/news soon, not that I'm feeling terribly impatient.   ;D

is it something like Total War?
RTS? TBS?

It's RTS.

Sort of like Total War, except there's a much much greater emphasis on supply lines and protecting them as you constantly deploy/redeploy troops as needed around your empire and on campaign.

If you have the time, I'd very much recommend reading this excellent two part article that explains why this game's (hegemony gold) gameplay really shines.

I've been watching it a bit. Definitely looking forward to seeing what they do. :) I really like the general mechanics in their games, as the "grand strategy RTS" approach is pretty unique compared to most strategy games.

It's looking like 2013 is going to be the biggest year for Rome since 476 AD! ;)

I wasn't until I saw this thread. When's it supposed to drop?
