Nova Roma : trailer

Voici une première bande-annonce pour ce futur city builder sur le thème de la ville éternelle, jeu dans lequel il s’agira alors que l’empire romain s’effondre de faire passer un modeste village au statut métropole grouillant de vie. Parmi les mécanismes qui pourraient s’avérer intéressants, on notera qu’il faudra une bonne gestion de l’eau, des chaînes de ravitaillement, de la population, cela y compris un système de lois et de décrets, et aussi via un arbre de développement technologique. Le monde extérieur à la ville ne sera pas non plus absent, des barbares, des dieux, des catastrophes naturelles ou encore des machinations impériales étant également au programme.

Roman-themed city-building game Nova Roma announced at PC Gaming Show!
The next city-building game from Hooded Horse challenges players to build a new “Eternal City” that will stand the test of time

June 11, 2023 – Relive the glory of Rome in Nova Roma, a new city-building game from Hooded Horse. Escape the trappings of a decaying Roman Empire and grow a small breakaway village into a bustling metropolis, juggling complex supply chains, manipulating the terrain, and even redirecting the flow of water to meet the needs of the people.

Nova Roma is developed by Lion Shield, known for best-selling Kingdoms and Castles, and its new project builds on solid foundations to offer a compelling experience for fans and newcomers. All new mechanics will challenge players’ city-building skills to the max; they’ll need to adapt as heavy rains cause floods and devastation, as well as sate the needs of the citizens with fine foods, entertainment, and laws. As players toil away and enjoy the fruits of their labor, know that the gods of the Roman pantheon are watching – if they’re not appeased, punishment will rain down upon the land.

Key features of Nova Roma include:

– Innovative new water mechanics that can be manipulated via infrastructure.
– Complex supply chains requiring constant expansion into resource-rich countryside.
– Population needs that range from food and finery to coliseums and games to keep the people entertained.
– Intricate city management through laws, edicts, and a tech tree.
– A new day/night cycle.
– Confront the dangers of the world, whether it be barbarians, gods, or the jealous machinations of the old empire.
– Bigger, better maps, better terrain sculpting, and much more!

“We’re honored to be working with Lion Shield on its next project,” says Tim Bender, CEO of Hooded Horse. “Kingdoms & Castles is a gold standard in city-building games, and we’re excited to publish the Roman-themed successor.”

“We’re pleased to work with Hooded Horse on Nova Roma, “ says Pete Angstadt, Creative Director and co-founder at Lion Shield. “We’re building on everything we learned making Kingdoms and Castles and hope to create the best ancient Roman-era city builder we can, set in a world informed by both history and mythology.”

Lion Shield has partnered with Hooded Horse to take advantage of the company’s proven track record in marketing and publisher services, as it recently announced it sold over a million copies of its released games within its first 12 months of selling on Steam.

Nova Roma is coming to early access for PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store in 2024. A press kit is available.
