Come back to Ancient Greek

I would like to bring you back to b.c. 5th century, a grand era with respectable people. You act as an Greek Archon to construct your acropolis with great artists and philosophers, protect your citizens with your comrades, fight again the invasion from Persia and Carthage.

The Main Surprise

It sounds like an old school traditional RTS, right? No, not at all.

1. Though you are the executor of the city, your power is limited by your citizens with suffrage. Every decision you made should get the agreement of the council (Bouleuterion). It needs your skill to amuse the people.

2. It's completely 2D and easy to manipulate. It will made you relax rather than going through the high intense warfare competition. I'd like to convey the feeling of antique, just like the Greek vases painting. It makes itself totally different from any other traditional style.

Why Greece?

News

I have to do many researches about the Greek. It's an intriguing era. People devoutly worshiped their Gods daily, simultaneously, rational thinking were always in their mind. I can feel the self-confidence of the Greek citizens at the BC 5th century. Their mental states were totally different from the people living in the middle age. They were so smart and their mind would never be confined. It was an amazing era.

Another reason also attracts me, the democracy. Although it excluded the women and slaves. I am not sure why any RTS is ignoring such interesting element. In "b.c.500", it will be an crucial element not just increasing the challenge, it is a core for the entire stuff. You can nearly do nothing if your citizens dislike you.

Also, Greek citizens would appreciate naked body. Why I should draw a bunch of heavy armors with ornamental decorations? No, in contrast, I will present the naked men, as Greek culture does, at least at the warriors.

And a controversial issue maybe appear. Yes, the gay. But it would go too far, right?
