About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Imperator' - Official Website Launched

"Imperator" is an Alternate Earth game, one set in a future world where Ancient Rome never fell. Small changes at crucial moments in Roman history create an entirely new timeline for Earth, leading to a star-spanning Roman Republica and thousands of years of interstellar Pax Romana. The Republic is home to many planets, each containing wildly different flora, fauna, creatures, culture, and climate. As the game begins, new threats to the Republic have sprung up from beyond its borders, making the galaxy more dangerous and the Republic itself less stable ­ an exhilarating setting for an online gamer. Over the last few decades, many themes of classical Roman history have found their way into modern science fiction and fantasy -- in "Imperator" the architecture, beauty, nobility, and even the savagery of Rome are the heart of the game.

"Imperator" presents a thrilling world for online gamers, filled with advanced technology and interplanetary warfare. The new online destination for "Imperator" features concept art, developer diaries and will continuously reveal information and assets until the game ships in Winter 2005.

“Sci-fi and MMO fans are eagerly anticipating more information about 'Imperator,' and we’re thrilled to offer them an online source for frequent updates and exclusive assets,” said Mark Jacobs, president and CEO of Mythic Entertainment. “The site is a way for the development team to communicate with fans, and for the fans to see and participate in the evolution of this next-generation game.”
