HISTORY™ Egypt Engineering an Empire Released!

Post by IainMcNeil » Thu Mar 25, 2010 5:35 pm

SLITHERINE BRINGS THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE PHARAOHS TO YOUR PC, PSP & iPhone and now also in iPad!

Slitherine is proud to announce the release of HISTORY™ Egypt Engineering an Empire for PC, PSP, iPhone & iPad. The title is the first in a series of turn-based strategy games based upon the HISTORY™ television series "Engineering an Empire". Each episode of the program looks at the history and culture of a great civilization through the prism of its engineering accomplishments.

HISTORY™ Egypt Engineering an Empire allows players to build their own empire from its foundation to the height of its power. Acting as the leader of a Egypt or one of its neighbours, players manage all aspects of its rise, from economic growth to political power, the development of armies, and expansion into other regions by methods such as war and diplomacy.

Empires are controlled using three main views:

• Campaign Map: shows the entire game world, including mountains, forests, coastlines, oceans, rivers, cites, and armies.

• City Map: gives players an overview of the structure and role of a town within the empire, and provides a basis for economic decisions.

• Battle Map: to be used when diplomacy has run its course or when a city is being attacked, resulting in turn-based combat.

All nations, cities, armies, and events were carefully researched to ensure historical accuracy. The game is highly accessible and a great first game for newcomers to the strategy genre.

HISTORY™ Egypt Engineering an Empire will also soon be available for portable consoles Nintendo DS™, Sony PSP.

Hi! When should we expect the PSP release of this and the BBC Battlefield Academy?

I loved Commander at War: Europe and Great Battles of Rome on PSP.
