Imperium Romanum (PC)
Construct fortifications, build towers, gates and bridges, and pay for them in a challenging, enjoyable, and authentic quest to rule the World. "Imperium Romanum" boasts a variety of new features to enhance game-play and complete the historical strategy gaming experience. These include a sophisticated graphics engine, a mass of authentic historical buildings such as the world famous Circus Maximus and Gladiator schools, an impressive battle system where the player commands their armies and an interactive mission mode which allows the player to control the activation of goals. Imperium Romanum is due for release in February/March 2008
Jack Keane (PC)
Is an amusing, action-packed Point 'n' Click Adventure with loads of allusions to well-known computer games and classic movies. Players assume the role of daring adventurer Jack and accompany him in his travels during the early colonial era. Once again short on cash, no sooner does Jack accept a relatively innocent assignment than he's up against a truly mad scientist and his army of trained apes. The game takes Jack to settings such as London, Capetown and the jungles of India - and he wouldn't be Jack if he didn't run into shifty characters wherever he goes... Jack Keane is due for release in March 2008
AGON - Lost Sword of Toledo (PC)
The Lost Sword of Toledo is the fourth episode and the second full-disc instalment in the AGON adventure game series. It can be enjoyed as a standalone game, with new characters and original puzzles.
