What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access will be used to engage with the community to shape the development of the game. Additional resource, buildings, scenarios and game modes are planned for development as part of the early access plan.

While already fully playable, additional time will be invested in planning new buildings, resources and expanding out additional parts of the game to make it more fun.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“4 months of early access with planned updates to polish and refine the experience with feedback from the community. It is our goal that by the end of this period the game will be in a further refined state.

Additionally, it's our plan to produce free content after launch to support and expand the game. The idea being to produce a continually expanding experience that builds off the fundamentals of the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“As the game progresses, it's our plan to introduce a mixture of new functionality and to refine core gameplay systems. These include elements such as:
  • Additional collectable / craft-able resources
  • New independent and resource-driven buildings (to use these new resources to produce goods)
  • New scenarios / scenario chains
  • Enhanced interactions with the senate and trade

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable end to end. Over a dozen unique scenarios have been created, each of which unlocks as the previous is completed. It will be released in a highly polished state but the additional time will allow us to plan additional gameplay elements and enhancements.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The pricing will stay the same during the early access period and after launch.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“After the initial launch date we plan to provide additional updates outlining new buildings and the overall direction of the game as it proceeds.

At launch the game will be fully functional and complete, however as the game progresses we plan to introduce additional resources and buildings to supplement them. For example this could be a new food item and it's associated building chains (generator > refinement building > final item generation building). These new resources would give extra depth and management to the game.

Discussions with the community via the steam posts and community center will be our main point of contact for shaping the way Glory of Rome operates. We plan on listening to user advice about additional buildings and features that interest the users (such as looking into expanded trading systems, disasters and other features you'd want from a city simulation game)”

The African Kingdom Released!

The African Kingdom is live. Far away from Rome, you'll establish, manage and grow settlements all across Africa. With 8 new scenarios, a range of resources to collect and heaps of new buildings to construct, you have your work cut out for your Administrator!

About This Game

Glory of Rome is a grand city building simulation set in the peak of the Roman Empire. Your charge from the Senate is to create, manage and expand settlements to further the reaches of glorious Rome.

You'll take on the role of a new city administrator. You'll manage resources, industries, and the needs of your citizens to create a flourishing society. With multiple types of citizens and industries, you'll have to balance each of their needs to ensure your city thrives.

Expand, Grow, Thrive

You'll undertake multiple appointments from the Senate, each one with their own unique challenges and gameplay styles. Each mission is different, requiring multiple aspects to complete them, from creating certain structures, expanding settlements, maintaining a large population or just having sufficient favor with the Senate. As you prove your worth to the Senate, more complex paths open before you, expanding your possibilities of your city management. Complete over a dozen unique scenarios in the grand campaign with additional campaigns and scenarios scheduled for release.

Across the Roman Empire

Rome's reach is vast and so is the work required. You'll manage settlements all the way from the heart of Italy to remote provinces and beyond. Each of the scenarios sends you across the land, with their own unique layout, design and personality. Tame the land and let your settlement flourish.

Resources Management & Balance

Creating resources and balancing settlement requirements are a key part of the game. Each citizen, industry and business has their own needs and requirements. It's up to you as the administrator to balance these needs to ensure goods flow all across the city. You'll create a wide variety of resources from agricultural products, minerals, trade goods and everything else in-between to see your settlement flourish.

Game Updates & Expansions

The game is being continually updated with new features, campaigns and new game modes. With features such as the new
Sandbox Mode and the upcoming African Kingdom campaign the game is always improving.
