Dawn of Discovery Gold (The original including the Venice add-on) is the American version of Anno 1440 AD Gold Edition which was released in Europe. The game is identical and I could find no changes apart from the game title.

Graphics are well implemented and fully customizable to suit player's hardware and operating system environments. Sound is atmospheric, NPC's are well vocalized and have convincing characterization, music is of good ambience and is non-intrusive.

There are four difficulty settings and the game supports both single player and multi-player. There are a number of campaign missions with pre-defined victory conditions, and a sandbox mode for infinite play.

Starting conditions may vary significantly depending on difficullty settings and gameplay mode.

Essentially the player is tasked with exploring islands, establishing a colony, expanding the settlement and ensuring that resources are acquired to meet the needs and demands of the colony.

The player can place fishing huts, lumber yards, mines, quarries and a variety of farms and manufacturing plants to generate resources. Various facilities such as places of worship, fire departments and taverns will increase the safety and status of the colony. As the game progresses additional storage and manufacturing and mining facilities become available.

The player can adjust tax rates and either approve or deny colonists access to building materials.

There are NPC's (Non-Player Characters) that will offer quests from time to time, these will usually be either fetch and deliver, find and deliver (Zoom in on the town and find a person or persons), explore an island, escort a ship, or sink a ship. These missions usually have a time limit and need to be completed before the time expires.

The islands are of two main types (Northern/Occidental or Southern/Orient). The resources that can be cultivated will differ depending on the type.

Players can trade to purchase goods, or opt to produce and sell goods. Trade routes can be automated or the player can manually operate a trading vessel. Trading can be set at each player harbour.

Players may during mid to late game decide to acquire additional expansion potential by evicting one or more competitors by force and taking over their islands.

Pirates will occassionaly be either a help or a hinderance depending on difficulty settings and diplomatic status.

Dawn of Discovery has a lot of depth and is a great time-waster. The game has a sense of progression and accomplishment and will unlock features and rewards.

Dawn of Discovery is a highly addictive and fun to play game that comes highly recommended.

One of my favorite strategy games ever and my personal favorite time/setting for the Anno series got a wonderful expansion pack.

Wonderful graphics for its time, fun gameplay and a wonderful expansion pack are just some of the joys that Dawn of Discovery and its expansion pack Venice offer.

If you want an older strategy game that you can sink many hours into pick this up, while I don't find it has quite the depth that 2070 had, I do like the setting and time more personally.

If you are going to check out the upcoming Anno game I suggest you check out this one and 2070 to get ready for another entry to this wonderful and in depth series.

Day 1 - Settled Peacefully and founded the City of Innsmouth, defended by the stalwart ship Heart of Gold. Bless this verdant land we have found.

Day 7 - Explored the Orient, opening peaceful diplomatic channels and arranging for settlement rights, offered me a free bag of "spice" to take home to my people

Day 10 - the Citizenry of my city have developed an inexplicable craving for the "spice" that can be procured from the Orient and refuse to act like civil tax payers without it

Day 13 - Established the Colony of Asheron to settle oriental peoples and harvest their "spice" farms. Financial markets are begining to teeter if supply of the substance cannot be maintained.

Day 18 - Upon discovery of further "spice" farming by a nearby settlement, plans are being drawn up to privateers their spice trade and capture it. Shortages in "spice" lead to psychotic breaks in common people and looting and riots. I must admit, this stuff makes my daily porridge quite palatable

Day 21 - War was declared between the impotent Bard and his foolish people who hold the "spice" lands i want for me and my peoples. Civilization itself now depends on seasoned porridge and fish. It goes well with everything!

Day 23 - Let the annals of history record my glorious victory over those musical legions, This shall form the start my personal "spice" stock. Odd, this morning my eyes were glowing a bit blue. maybe i should cut back on the seasoning . . .

Day 28 - War was declared upon Innsmouth by the crusading legions of a nearby warrior. she claims our work with the Orientals is blasphemous, despite her OWN "spice" trade routes. To the depths of the inferno with her! I shall lay claim to her mining operations AND her spice fields. That giant mountain at the center of her mines looks like a grand site for my next castle. Hmmm . . i'm out of spice for my tea. I'll have to fire the maid again, or maybe that's not sending a strong enough message.

Day 31 - The War rages! Amidst the screams of battle, i heard the earth speak to me. He is coming, and our glorious spice crusades will wake him. I shall send in arsonists and sabateurs to burn that overzealous warrior womans's town to the ground. The spice must flow!

Day 35 - I should never have come here. My cities riot and burn in demand for spice, the mountain screamed fire into the sky this morning as we prepared to invade; my legions are lost. That zealous harlots troops have stolen my bardic spice fields and burned Asheron's spice fields to the ground. The Heart of Gold is all i have left. I must flee.

Next time, next time i'll do it without spice . . . but just one more jar of it on my porridge won't hurt, will it?

9/10
