Age of Gladiators II: ROME - Progress!



Just a quick update to let everyone know I am hard at work still on Age of Gladiators II: Rome!

Some things in the works right now:

  • Arenas: These are being designed as we speak. As the player progresses through the various cities, the arenas they fight in will be come grander, until finally reaching the Coliseum itself!
  • 3D Models: Gladiators will come from three regions in the game (Italia, Gaul, Africa) and will have their own ethnic abilities. The preliminary looks at the models as they are being design right now are fantastic; much more detailed. Looking forward to showing more.
  • Armor: Once the models are complete, armor will be worked on next. I'm going for six armor sets to start (two light, two medium, two heavy). The armor sets themselves will match much of what we have seen in artwork and movies featuring gladiators to-date.
  • Weapons: Weapons are finished and will be in-game shortly.
  • Animals: I just coded in the beasts (lions, tigers, wolves, bears) today. Like the first game, this will allow players to send their gladiators against either human or beast opponents.



  • 2D Boss/Gladiator Portraits: These have been completed (see above for a few examples) and are now in-game. I decided to go with an art style for bosses and gladiators closer to the first game, with both gladiators and bosses having a unique face and personality.
  • UI: The UI is being designed right now as well and should be completed in the next couple weeks. It won't take me long to implement that in the game so that I can start showing people how the management (non-combat) side of things will look.
  • Coding: The game backend is almost entirely coded now and is being tested as we speak. The majority of what's left at this point is just putting in the above art elements and then more testing!

I'm really excited to start showing you some screenshots very shortly!

“Age of Gladiators 2 is a team-management game with some turn-based RPG elements. Think of Football Manager, since many of us know that one, but with gladiators instead of footballers and a thousand years into the future.”
Save – Save Or Quit

“Age of Gladiators II is certainly not for everyone, but it will soothe the simulation itch by being a well-made, stat-heavy game with a strong thematic backdrop.”

About This Game

Age of Gladiators II: Death League is a single-player strategy game set in 3000AD; a violent and unpredictable future where the gladiatorial games have surged in popularity throughout the known galaxy.

Hire scouts to scour the planets for potential prospects – once you have recruited your gladiators through the draft, scouting, missions, trades, or waiver wire acquisitions, you will need to manage their morale and personality while equipping them for battle on the harsh combat environments of various worlds. Recruit support staff, upgrade your headquarters, collect bounties, research technologies, build your headquarters, partake in side missions, and manage the wealth and reputation of your empire as it grows each day.

As your fighters win battles and increase in level, it will be up to you to decide how to focus their abilities by spending attribute, weapons, and expertise points. Compete, trade, and interact with other in-game owners as you fight through fifty-nine grueling, regular season battles in order to reach the playoffs, vying for the chance to etch your name for all eternity on the coveted Blood League championship trophy.
Build your story. Build your empire.

Features:


  • Eight different species with their own specific combat bonuses and abilities.
  • Control your gladiators with the new 3D isometric combat system, where fights can have hundreds of different outcomes. Utilize dozens of different combat styles and abilities –employ unique species abilities, combat stims that increase physical stats, and special equipment such as force fields, weapon jammers, armor shredders, nano-leeches, and more.
  • Construct a headquarters to your exact specifications in order to maximize the efficiency of your operation. Medical bays, training centers, cloning tanks, cybernetics labs, weapons ranges, equipment workshops, and more.
  • Gladiators are born with their own dynamically generated physical attributes (twelve in total), weapon specialties, and personalities. It is up to you to draft the best prospects from the academy, make astute trades with competing owners, or hire scouts to scour for fringe fighters on nine different worlds.
  • As your gladiators level up, they gain points to spend on their attributes, weapons training, and expertise. Expertise allows you to build and customize your fighter according to their appropriate strengths. Weapons training allows you to specialize your gladiator with a specific weapon (pistol, carbine, or rifle for ranged sharpshooters, or 1-handed sword, 2-handed sword, or axe for melee brawlers). The physicality of your gladiators will increase or decrease with age, depending on if they are in their prime or declining.
  • Track the progress of your recently-drafted gladiators in the Rookie League, carefully developing and preparing them for their eventual promotion to the deadly Blood League. You could have the next unstoppable superstar in your farm system!
  • Clone dead fighters back to life or fit them with cybernetics if they are grievously wounded.
  • Be sure the check the bounty board. An opposing gladiator in the arena may have a price on their head, yielding millions of credits in payouts if they are killed in battle.
  • Manage your gladiators carefully – their morale, greed, injuries, fatigue, weapons training, and more must be taken into account before sending them to battle.
  • As your gladiators gain glory from battle, they will become more widely recognized and adored by the crowds. Win enough battles and they may even get voted into the Blood League hall of fame after they retire (or die).
  • Become a mogul outside of the arena. Purchase property for fame or businesses through which to further increase the efficiency of your operation.
  • Purchase, recruit, draft, trade, or claim fighters off the waiver wire.
  • Rob credit shipments, kidnap enemy fighters, assassinate your debt holders and more with the proactive mission system. Increase the odds of success by sending reliable gladiators on the mission as well. Lawfully aligned gladiators will only partake lawful missions, while criminally-inclined gladiators will assist in unlawful activities.
  • Engage in five different branches of research: combat, medical, weapons, armor, and scouting.
  • Search for deals on weapons, armor, combat stims, special equipment, and credit loans on the marketplace.
  • Hire staff such as scouts, doctors, trainers, weapons techs, and armor techs to help your gladiators achieve victory. Assign your superstars or promising prospects to trainers for individual grooming; or accelerate the healing of your wounded by providing them expert medical care from your hotshot doctor.
  • Strive to become the wealthiest individual in the known galaxy. There are quick and underhanded ways to make money, but your reputation and fighter’s morale may suffer as a result.
  • Receive taunting messages from opposing bosses as well as various other messages from your fighters, staff members, and different characters as you progress through the game.
  • Rename your gladiators in order to increase your attachment toward them.
  • Bet for or against your gladiator based on the odds generated by bookmakers in-game.
  • Fight purses and betting is based on the hype associated with each match. The greater the hype, the more lucrative the fight purse and betting market will be - but the opposition will also be tougher.
  • Each game is dynamically generated and different each time.
  • Play as many seasons as you want. Build your story. Build your empire.
