Early Access Update

By rob,

To start off the weekend we have another update for Early Access. This one includes a significant reworking of the siege mechanics and the final chapter of the campaign: Men Believe What They Wish. You'll also notice all new wall graphics for the city/forts and a lot of bug fixes for linking and adjusting group formations.

As usual, most of this is still a work in progress: the AI still needs to be updated to the new siege mechanics, there are still some artifacts and collisions with the new walls, chapter 4 still needs rewards, and there's a lot still to do on grouping.

Early Access Update 4!

By rob,

After a few longer updates, we're back on pace this week with another Early Access update for Hegemony Rome. This time we've got a first glimpse at the long awaited Sandbox mode, new rewards and objectives for Chapter 3, plus a few more gameplay adjustments and bug fixes. Check out the release notes over on Steam.

Happy New Year!

By rob,

Notifications for beta testers have been sent out, so check your inboxes! We apologize to everyone who wasn't selected, but unfortunately we could only include a small percentage of the applicants in the first round. However, once we get a better idea of how it's going, and we're sure we can keep up with the feedback, we do plan to expand the beta significantly. So stay tuned to the web, Facebook or Twitter for more news and, if you haven't applied yet, you can still get into later rounds so check out the original post for more info on applying.

And if you did apply, but did not get an e-mail from us, drop me another note in-case someone's spam filter picked it up and we'll get it sorted out.

One more week to beta!

By rob,

Thanks to everyone who sent in e-mails over the last week to volunteer for our beta test. The response so far has been awesome and we really appreciate the enthusiasm we've received from all over the world. We wish we had the time to respond to everyone individually, but there is still a ton to get done before the testing starts. Our plan is still to select the first round of testers by the end of this week to start testing sometime after the 6th. So if you've already sent me an e-mail, stay tuned to the website, Facebook or Twitter for more info.

And for everybody else, it's not too late to get into the first round of testers so check out the info here and drop me an e-mail.

Happy Holidays, it's Beta Time!

By rob,

Just in time for the holidays, we're excited to announce that we're looking for eager volunteers who'd like to help out play testing Hegemony Rome! Player feedback is really important to us and we're eager to spend the last few months polishing things up as much as possible. And frankly, this game is just way too big for the handful of us to try everything thoroughly. Continued →
