WHY ARE WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP?
“ROMA Blades of Victory” is a next generation city-building, historical strategy game set in Ancient Rome, starting from the very beginning of Roman Civilisation. The game is fully designed and developed in Rome, near the Roman Forum, and we're striving to create a highly engaging and immersive playing experience that takes you back to a period of glory.
Making video games is a costly passion and we have already gathered €250k from our own pockets and invested it for the development of ROMA. We believe that if you love doing something you have to start right away and everything needed will come along the way. It would have been very hard to receive funding through traditional methods for a game like ROMA, and at the same time we don't want to compromise on quality and gameplay to please some external investors or publishers. We love Kickstarter as it is a way to directly reach the people who love to play strategic games as much as we do and we want to share our dream with them. We want to be accountable only to our principles and to you, our supporters and co-founders of ROMA.
Kickstarter is a great way to interact with you and make everybody feel welcome and that they are an active part of this project. We want you to get involved and to help us with your feedback and suggestions to make ROMA the very best strategic indie game ever created. We want you to know what's going on behind the scenes, from the the initial development to the final completion, and we want you to enjoy the journey together with us, with more awesome things to come.
WHAT IS YOUR MONEY GOING TOWARD?
We need to raise €80k to complete the initial stage of the project and to make the game fully playable. All the money will help us to run a bullet-proof team with the highest quality results. We are are creating a new way of playing strategic games, from an open and expandable gameplay, to a new graphic style that leaves plenty of room for your imagination when it comes to "completing the scene" and to developing new possibilities of interaction between players. We have paid careful attention to the historical reconstruction and we’ve also designed the game to have a modular system that can expand as the budget rises. We have planned tons of great game add-ons that we can bring to life through stretch goals if we reach our initial goal. We plan to recover our initial investment by selling in-game goods later on, so all the additional money we raise through Kickstarter we'll go straight to a richer gameplay by adding more stories, more graphics, more adventures and more fun.
Gameplay (Prototype / Under Development)
The Music of ROMA
This trailer music by (Musician's name) gives you a taste of the music of ROMA. Should ROMA become a commercial success, we'll produce an epic album with additional live ancient instruments.
Start in Rome's Archaic Age
Romulus was the first King of Rome. When he founded Rome in 753 B.C. he couldn't imagine that a puny village of the Iron Age would one day turn into the mightiest empire of the Ancient World. Or perhaps did did he planned this from the very beginning? Find out how life was almost 3000 years ago and face all the challenges that the early kings of Rome needed to address to survive in the Archaic Age.
Build a mighty Capital.
Build the ancient city of your dream and unleash your creativity with beautifully designed buildings, wonders and decorations that change through the ages and give you the exact measurement of how your power has grown. Show off your mighty Capital and set an example of beauty and sound city planning. Enjoy every 3D building with its peculiar animation and function and relocate the city blocks as your needs expand.
Fight real-time epic Battles.
Challenge thousands of players around the world and direct super-interactive and realistic units with a click of the mouse or the touch of a finger.
Plan and lead your wars with 55 unique, beautifully designed units that can multiply into thousands at your command. Enjoy the feeling of epic fights, direct your army exactly where you have planned and zoom in and out to watch spectacular battles unfold. Challenge other leaders and barbarians and be ready to invade a nation as the opportunity arises.
Conquer the known-world and achieve the "Pax Romana".
Build, Conquer, Expand. The Roman Empire is big. Everybody is fighting for supremacy and above all for honour and power. ROMA is a virtually endless game and you'll always have things to do as a leader. Your goal is to achieve the PAX ROMANA and to establish peace and prosperity for your nation. The Known World is conquered once the strongest alliance gains control over 51% of the map (and this is not an easy task). But this is not the end, the fight for supremacy continues and you have to be smart and wise to stay in power. Will you fight for glory? Will you fight for Rome?
The game is being developed in Shiva engine for Web Browser (PC / MAC), iOS and Android. The game will be available in English, and with your help we may add French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish languages.

WE ARE THE ROMA TEAM
Roma Blades of Victory is the result of 5 years of research and planning by two friends from Rome who want to make a difference in the game industry by showing the world that even a small indie team can achieve great results if fuelled by passion and commitment.
Gian Luca Masciangelo created the concept of Roma Blades of Victory by combining his passion for historical strategy games and his background as CEO of a Design & Communication Agency with a 20+ year career in the Creative Industry.
Guido Guidotti Mori created the team and put together the action plan for the development of the game, from his knowledge of CEO of a Corporate Promotion Agency and his background as an international business developer.
Together with a team of talented individuals from different fields of creativity, design and programming, we are bringing the project to life.
Today our Roman team consists of 11 people with a combined 120+ years of experience in the game industry. Together we have brought several award-winning products to market, and gained all the necessary experience needed to bring Roma Blades of Victory to life. We are passionate about the project, and we love ROMA.
Risks and challenges
We’re turning a dream into reality with ROMA - Video games are complex projects, especially those that are about strategy and with an historical base. Fortunately, we collectively have great experience with the technology, design and production. We are a team of professionals with a combined 120+ years experience in Game Design, Production, 3D modelling, Engine Design, Project Management, Sound Design, App Development, and we are confident in our ability to provide our backers with a high-quality game that will honour the name of ROMA.
Our workflow has been planned and designed to complete the full game structure first and then to refine and enhance every detail. We want to have a product that has been fully developed and tested before it is released. ROMA will be out in the first half of 2017 and we've set our first deadline to 21st April which is the day Rome was founded in 753B.C. (This amounts to a total of 24 months of development since we began working on the game.) We are also planning to bring new talents on-board to further polish the game and make it really great.
With such an ambitious project and schedule, you may ask yourself how we can still deliver ROMA if we don't meet the goal. We’ll tell you straight away that ROMA is a modular game and it is fully scalable, which means that we can still release a great title by focusing on our core objectives, while still adding new features and a richer gameplay as our resources increase. As our target goal is reached, we’ll be able to deliver a full and satisfying Ancient-Roman experience with full details and thicker plots and surprises. As we exceed our goal and reach further targets, we'll continue to enrich the gameplay by adding more stories, graphics, adventures and more fun. Should ROMA also become a success outside of Kickstarter, we've already planned a series of exciting game expansions and cross-media gaming experiences.
Byosphera is also establishing a series of side activities like the production and selling of Ancient Roman merchandise and gadgets that can partially cover some of our game expenses. Of course, even if we cannot develop a game like ROMA without your support, we are still investing our own resources in the development of the game. This is our dream and just like you, we want ROMA to be the best it can be.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
