Description
ALEA JACTA EST…the die is cast!

“ALEA JACTA EST” is what Caesar said when he crossed the Rubicon river when he learned that the Senate had removed him from his command. Crossing that small Italian river was equivalent to disobeying Rome’s orders and entering into open rebellion.
The great confrontation with Pompey was about to begin… One of them would become the Master of Rome, and the other would die…

Another great way to relive the major civil wars of the Roman ancient world on your PC, from the first century BC to the third century AD…

ALEA JACTA EST is the first historical game on a PC to cover the main Roman civil wars, and it will be released on September 22nd, 2012.

The game was created by a French team of dedicated players and recreates those epic fights that pitch Romans vs. Romans:

- Civil war between Marius and Sulla (and Mithridate of Pontus) (87 to 82 BC).
- The conflict between Rome, Sertorius and Mithridate (75 to 70 BC)
- The great Roman civil war with Caesar opposing Pompey (50 to 45 BC)
- The Year of the Four Emperors (68 to 70 AD)
- The advent of Septimius Severus (193 to 198 AD)

ALEA JACTA EST offers a great level of details and historical accuracy rarely found in a video game. It’s a true simulation where the player is directly confronted to the dilemmas and challenges of the great leaders of the time. How to build and pay your armies and fleets, to organize, maintain and maneuver them, taking into account military, economic and also political environments… as Rome's neighbors won’t stay inactive and may well participate in the conflict, or take advantage of it for their own good...

For instance, two of the scenarios allow players to take the role of the non-Roman king of Pontus, Mithridate VI, the last great opponent of the Roman Republic.

The game uses the famous AGE engine, already successfully implemented on other games, with turn duration of one month.
The map shows the whole Europe, Northern Africa and the Near East (over 2800 regions), with cities, roads, fortifications, terrain, weather, tribes and kingdoms of the time (adjusted for each scenario).
Hundreds of historical leaders, units and events, 5 campaigns from 87 BC to 197 AD, dozens of hours of play against your PC or the possibility to play via email with up to three players in the same game.

ALE JACTA EST is the core game that holds most of the requirements needed for the upcoming Ancient campaigns titles that are planned with this game: shortly after the release of AJE, an expansion pack will offer the history of the beginnings of the Roman Republic, with its conflicts with Carthage or Pyrrhus. The main goal is to ultimately offer all the wars of Rome, from its beginning till its end…

As with all other AGEOD games, AJE will benefit from the same long-lasting and quality follow-up, allowing us to improve and develop endlessly new mods, events, scenarios and graphics …

Expected official ALEA JACTA EST release date is September 22nd, 2012

In Ageod's case they could lost a significant amount of profit because the genre is more a niche. They would not only loss valuable dedicated and trusted consumers but risk the fact of the game being misunderstood and slandered by the mainstream consumers who bought the product just for the price rather than the actual content that was advertised.

Putting games on sale is like treating your work like garbage. You're practically just tossing your work around hoping anybody including those who might only be interested because they want to save a few bucks would buy it in the idea that you would somehow make more profit when you are in significant danger of making less(It heavly depends on how many consumers are interested and how popular the particular title is). Lower price for higher quantity of purchases has it's ups and downs. If you don't sell the amount of copies discounted at the rate of the profit that would have been made by the projected estimated amount based on selling that same amount sold at the discounted price sold at standard price you could lost a significant amount of profit and won't even know it without proper accounting.

+ LOL This is exactly why this company doesn't want to sell their games to mainstreamers (meaning putting their games on sale.) First off, it's NOTHING LIKE TOTAL WAR and has NO RELATIONS with Sega nor the genre of Total War. Alea Jacta Est is considered more in the Wargame-->Straight Logistics and militeristic strategy. The consumers and genre itself is considered by some a niche because people who actually have an interest in hardcore historic realism and military logistics would find this game of interest. To the rest out their who buy games at ridiculous discounts would otherwise give this glorious title a bad name. +

Don't worry. AJE isn't so slow as PoN.
I hope tthat not only AJE as it is will be released, but all addons to.

Really unsure about this game and will likely pass. Pride of Nations was one of the WORST games I've ever played with an average of 14+ minutes a turn. It still has not been fixed btw.
