Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Rise of Venice
Renaissance-era Venice sits ripe for the ambitious merchant’s taking in the latest release from Kalypso, Rise of Venice. The economic and political sim allows players to take a fledgling trading company to towering, gilded heights as they expand their fleet, strike deals, and battle political rivals at home and pirates at sea. Wares will be traded across the Mediterranean, with ports allowing economic expansion to Alexandria, Constantinople, and Rome, against the AI or with up to three friends online.
A dozen new screenshots have been released from Kalypso’s upcoming trading sim Rise of Venice. The shots launched alongside the game’s official site, www.riseofvenice.com. Gamers interested in seeing what’s in store as an ambitious merchant out to create a trading empire in Renaissance Venice, complete with a massive fleet and political influence, can find out more on the site, including info on the mechanics, art, and updates on development progress.
Kalypso, publisher of Tropico and Omerta, have revealed a new strategy-trading sim, Rise of Venice. Set during the Renaissance, Rise of Venice puts players in the shoes of a young merchant looking to turn his ragtag squad of trading ships into a mighty fleet that sails the world, with ports of call in Alexandria, Constantinople, Athens, Rome, and Tripoli. A story-driven campaign will see him and his family compete against the titans of the age, battling rivals at sea and in the parlors of influential politicians. Up to four players will be able to play together over LAN or Internet.
