4:04 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

By Design, Inc has announced that they have released Ancient Warfare, a pseudo-3D isometric game of realtime combat. This version features the historical combat of Romans vs Barbarians, and will be expanded in the future to even more eras of combat.


Here is the press release:

We are proud to announce the release of the Ancient Warfare for the
Macintosh. This initial version will ship with Romans and Barbarian armies.
It also includes a campaign for the Roman empire in 68 AD when Rome had four
emperors. The game will be expanded in the coming months to include
additional battlefields and ancient armies.


This historical combat game includes the following:


- True isometric view of the battlefield.

- 3D rendered graphics

- Rich sound effects

- Variable formations, line, box, wedge, etc.

- Includes infantry, archers, cavalry, wagon trains, etc.

- Construct large or small armies

- Fight on battlefields including forest, deserts and snow tile sets

- Original musical score

- Fight individual battles or campaigns


Note: There will be a special promotional offer until the end of October,
2001. We have 3 authentic silver coins from ancient Rome that we will give
a way in a drawing from the names of all those who have ordered Ancient
Warfare before the end of October 2001. These coins come with historical
notes and a guarantee of authenticity. The were all minted in the 3rd
century.


System requirements:


Mac/OS 9 or better

iMac, G3 or G4

70 Mb hard disk space

20 Mb memory

CD-ROM drive

As you can see the system requirements are quite low, making this game an inviting option for iMac or iBook owners. Currently there does not seem to be a demo version available, but the By Design web site has more screen shots and details. The game retails for $24.95 + $4 shipping and handling, and can be ordered direct from the web site.
