Play as a real leader of an ancient empire, make choices for your empire and grow it into a successful and prosperous entity. This dynamic game is different from many others of its kind, as your chosen leader will grow old, die and then you will assume the character of the next ruler of your empire You play both a nation and a dynasty, so having heirs to take the throne is important for the game to continue!

You can choose from 7 leaders from 7 different nations and empires including Phillip the second of Macedon, father of Alexander the Great, Cyrus the Great of Persia, Hatshepsut of Egypt and many more! Expand your empire, fight wars and build ancient sites! Watch our interview with Soren and Leyla Johnson, the brains behind the new historical strategy game Old World!
