Description
Release date: Q1.2015
CaesarIA is an open source remake of Caesar III game released by Impressions Games in 1998, it aims to expand the possibilities of the classical city-building simulators and to add new features showing the city life. Now the game work with Windows, Linux, Mac, Haiku and Android.

I remember the first time I played Caesar III. This is a wonderful amazingly smart game that makes me feel that the city lives its own life even after I finish playing. This feeling stays with me all these years. You can spend hours observing the city without interfering in its life: the plebs and the patricians, the merchants and the students – all in balance. This game gives me much pleasure during many days. When you govern this Roman city, when you construct new buildings and take care about its citizen’s health, when you bargain with neighbors and wait for the barbarians besieges, you can feel yourself the governor known even in Rome

I invite you to participate in my project, the game source code you can find on the main page as well as you can download ready builds for different OS. On the following page I estimated the prospective expenses of different people based on a reasonable hourly rate. Also I know that it’s impossible to put some strict deadlines in such creative projects because requirements can be changed, the terms can be shifted or broken as a result the final quality will be worse than you planned before. I’m not a high-qualified game developer, this is bad. But there is good news that I have many successful projects in my portfolio. There are no much differences between developing software or games. For more than 5 years I have been developing the system of divers detect with strict deadlines, with changing requirements, using computer graphics and many other conditionals.

I believe I will success.

Features:
+ loading maps from original Caesar III.
+ save\load game state
+ create\destroy buildings and construction
+ constructions influence on desirability around
+ migration(in/out) of citizens
+ warehouses and granaries for storage of goods and products
+ damages\fires of buildings
+ entertainment constructions (theaters, colloseum )
+ imperial trade network with the computer-cities
+ fishing, agriculture, extraction
+ Information layers for city states
+ prefects, engineers, trainee, soldiers and other
+ advisers
+ employments simulation
+ houses grow depending conditions around
+ health care and water supply
+ military buildings and war action

Current state
+ Now it is possible to download the game alpha version.

Plans for the future
- realistic financial system (salaries, purchase of goods, job search)
- specification of citizens, preservation of parameters of thoughts and formation of requirements
- bog or seamlessness maps
- terrain editing
- computer players (cities) and simulation of a distribution network
- network (web/local)

With your support i'll create remake of great game and add new opportunities.

Caesar II, III and IV are games that I enjoyed a lot! I started playing this series in 1997 and still played Caesar IV in 2012! Keep up with your project! Best wishes.
