They Couldn't Make Star Wars 1313, So They Made This Strategy Game Instead

What do you do when the beloved video game studio you worked at gets closed down? You get to work on that side-scrolling ancient Rome strategy game you've always wanted to do. And not just any side-scrolling ancient Rome strategy game. Super Roman Conquest has a pretty clever twist that'll change how you look at it.

War is complicated. It doesn't happen in just two dimensions. Sometimes, you need to send your retro-styled Roman warriors all the way over there — deeper into the screen — to kick some butt. Super Roman Conquest lets you do exactly that. The upcoming game is being made by SeaCliff Interactive, a bunch of guys who'd been working on Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault before the unfortunate shutdown of LucasArts. Head on over to their Kickstarter page to find out more about the game.

    To be honsest 1313 looked interesting until it was announced that it was about Boba Fett

    Seriously.. look I don't want to be a nay-sayer... but this looks terrible.

      Thats what they said about minecraft, but look how that turned out. Looks can be deceiving :)

      I'm with you on this one. 2 guys in their garage can do better than this - see Game Dev Tycoon.

      To me it looks like a cheap version of Apotheon, without any of the graphical charm of that game.

      I've played very similar games on Newgrounds already. People will make a Kickstarter for anything.

      And so much micro-management...

    I remember playing things with gameplay like this on my 286 back in the day.
