Final Verdict

I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed the game and how much multitasking I had to do considering it is still in alpha stage AND did not even have many of the features that is going to be in it upon release. From the pixel versions of the famous works of art, to the little history related mails you receive that affects your prestige just like how it would in real life, I enjoyed them all. I would highly recommend this game for sure and eagerly await the final product when all of the planned features are implemented and ready for action. Plus, cmon! If you think about it, this game may very well be the first of its kind. And when I say kind, I mean a hybrid of history, art, and management/simulation game. Honestly speaking, I try to get as much Renaissance games as I can. I wish a Baroque one will pop up somewhere (if anyone knows anything let me know!).

Stay tuned for the interview with the developer in the next post! I really hope you like this review so far! Love you guys
