The Entire Span of Human History Is In Your Hands.

Dominate 6,000 years of history from the Ancient Age to the Information Age. Which forces will you deploy to lead your nation to global prominence? Trade, espionage, diplomacy or war? Whichever path you choose, you'll experience the pulse pounding thrill and speed of real-time gaming combined with the epic scope and depth of turn-based strategy games - brought together for the first time ever in Rise of Nations.

Rise of Nations is the upcoming historical real-time strategy game from MacSoft, the same company who brought us classics such as Civilization III and Ages of Empire II.

In Rise of Nations, you'll create new cities, improve city infrastructures and expand national borders. Conquer foes through military might using everything from sling-shots to cannons to stealth bombers to nuclear weapons; corner the market on key commodities and consolidate power under your rule; wheel and deal across time with history's eminent cultures.

Take control or be controlled. It's your choice. ;)

With the recent news of Rise of Nations being ported to the Mac by MacSoft, it was a sure sign my mailbox would be full with requests for desktops from this title. Of course, you didn't disappoint because there has been a steady flow of emails stating just this. So, I took the hint and in between answering each one of them I was able to feature Rise of Nations in this week's offering. I wanted to create the feeling of the endless possibilities that 6,000 years of history really holds for us in this desktop. So, with the help of MacSoft and my trusty cable modem I was able to create this wallpaper. I simply entitled it, "Historic", and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)

Everyone be sure to keep those requests coming in.

Until then...
