Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Saturday 16 August 2014

So many adventures taking place in ancient Egypt and virtually none in the Roman Empire. I only know of two other games but SPQR: The Empire’s Darkest Hour (1997) is the only one I played for a while. First-person, lots of scrolls to read and puzzles that were too difficult for me. What really got to me were the empty streets, you’re all alone in ancient Rome, never get to meet a living soul. Mystian worlds should be alive or exploring will become a drag. This one is desolate.

It may have something to do with the complexity of the stuff needed to be presented graphically:

I remember wandering the empty streets in this game was an eerie experience. It was “semi-educational,” and the story hooked me, as I recall, but I never did manage to finish it. So you never meet any of the characters face-to-face?

It looks like they were/are working on a realtime 3d version

That’s what I’ve read. I didn’t finish the game, but I never met anyone.
