As a big fan of all things mythological, I was already taken in with the premise of this game. Rome's fantastical founding has been a favorite of mine since I was younger. I enjoyed the opening and the attention to detail with the systems and the layout of the UI from the little bit of gameplay I was subject to. As a dev and fan of the RPG Maker Game Engine, I think it adds a lot to the growing list of great games.
My one gripe would be the mapping. To me, it looks a bit sparse and somewhat haphazard in its delivery. Unfortunately, this is taking away from the promise of a great story. I hope this will be fixed.
Overall, I believe this game will be an awesome with some minor tweaks here and there. 3.5 out of 5!
