Back to News Listing Ageod travels back to the Birth of Rome

Posted: Tuesday, January 22, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

Samnites, the Senones, the Greeks and the Carthaginians were Romes first enemies and great leaders such as Pyrrhus and Hannibal fought to defend their lands. It was the start of an entire era of wars for domination, where innovation in military equipment was the key to success.

Birth of Rome is the new turn-based strategy game from Ageod (www.ageod.com) telling the story of those first epic wars that led to the unification of Italy and started Rome’s quest for global domination. The game uses the acclaimed AGE engine and is developed using the game structure and mechanics of Alea Jacta Est.

Birth of Rome features five scenarios from the 3rd Samnite War in 298 and 291 BC to the long and arduous First Punic War that raged from 264 to 241 BC. Birth of Rome features a particular emphasis on fleets and sea power, as they were vital to ensure control of the seas and maritime supply. As a full standalone release, Birth of Rome does not require Alea Jacta Est.

Birth of Rome is a true simulation where players are challenged to create armies and fleets, organize and maneuver them, sustain and reinforce them. All the time taking into account military, economic, political and diplomatic parameters.

 

The Scenarios:

  • The 3rd Samnite War opposing Rome and the Etruscan’s are the Samnite tribes between 298 and 291 BC, which will bring Rome control of central Italy.
  • The Senones War (284 to 282 BC), a violent Gallic tribe in Northern Italy is at war with Rome. Victory against these powerful Celtic warriors allows the Romans to take their revenge against those who plundered Rome in 390 BC.
  • Pyrrhic Victories (280 BC to 272 BC) where the Senate of Rome finally manages to capture Tarentum and southern Italy after repulsing one of the greatest ancient warrior kings, Pyrrhus of Epirus.
  • The First Punic War, a very long campaign between 264 and 241 BC, putting Rome against Carthage for the control of Sicily. A balanced struggle, focusing on naval operations. A shorter version starts in 256 BC.
  • The Mercenary War (241 BC to 238 BC), a fight between an exhausted Carthage and her own rebellious mercenaries in Africa.

Victory and Glory Card System!

Tuesday, February 02, 2016

To win a war, armies might be not enough. You need political skills as well, allowing you to change the balance of power in your favour, forge new alliances and isolate the enemy.

The endless conflict  between Napoleon and the several Coalitions formed against him was fought following exactly this simple rule. Great Britain didn’t have a ground army able to counter alone the capacity of the Revolutionary France and was forced to convince and support potential allies on the Continent.

On the other hand, Napoleon took many risks to manage fighting on multiple fronts at once, stretching his resources and wasting time and materials.
