Romans: Age of Caesar Interview

This week Firefly co-founders Simon Bradbury and Eric Ouellette are interviewed to shed light on the origins and future of our newly-announced online city builder! Tracing their professional roots back to past studios and a certain roman city sim that started it all, Simon and Eric discuss how all roads have led to Romans. Having coded, designed, produced, composed music and created art for all three entries in the classic Caesar series, many of Firefly’s current staff and collaborators are mining this rich strategy heritage for our new MMO. Add this to Firefly’s experience developing CivCity: Rome and you have the perfect team to take this classic gameplay online in Romans: Age of Caesar!

Developed by a new internal team, Romans: Age of Caesar is our spiritual successor to Stronghold Kingdoms and a completely new strategic challenge for fans of Firefly Studios games. We’ll be levelling up the city builder with Romans by introducing shared roman cities and a single world map on which all players can trade, battle barbarians and explore the empire! Governors will work together to share resources and defeat common threats as they contribute toward the prosperity of their central city. With each new city built players will be able to explore further out, discover new resources and restore the empire to its former glory. Planned for PC and mobile with full cross-platform play, Romans: Age of Caesar is scheduled to release later this year.
