I’m at the stage where I’m gathering possible ideas for a potential development so feel free to interject your opinions
Basically, the game will be set in a fictional empire inspired by Rome. In fact, very closely related to Rome but I opted for the fictional route because although I’ve done a fair bit of research and am quite well-versed in Roman history, I’m still no historian and I would like to avoid any history buff calling me out on historical inaccuracies
The time scale is around the fall of the Republic and you play as a member of one of the competing factions in their quest for domination. Your relationship with the fictional Caesar equivalent, social status and all the usual gender, sexuality, etc will most likely all be choices. But I might streamline one or two of those things for time’s sake since I’m only a one-man team
Perhaps you will gather men loyal to your noble house to finally uplift your bloodline to imperial glory? Perhaps you will rally what the remains of the Senate to save the dying Republic? Or perhaps you will gather your fellow common man and bring about a new ideological system altogether, perhaps you will call it ‘democracy’?
That’s all I have for now, any advice is appreciated since this will be my first ever project. Or if I’m convinced that the idea might not work well at all then I might start from scratch with something else
