History Egypt: Engineering an Empire allows players to build their own empire from the foundation to the height of its power. Acting as the leader of a territory from the Egyptian Empire, players manage all aspects of its rise, from economic growth to political power, the development of armies, and expansion into other regions by methods such as war and diplomacy.
To provide the historical backdrop for gameplay, the game incorporates footage from the “Engineering an Empire” television series. Each episode of the program looks at the history and culture of a great civilization through the prism of its engineering accomplishments.
Empires are controlled using three main views:
- Campaign Map: shows the entire game world, including mountains, forests, coastlines, oceans, rivers, cites, and armies.
- City Map: gives players an overview of the structure and role of a town within the empire, and provides a basis for economic decisions.
- Battle Map: to be used when diplomacy has run its course or when a city is being attacked, resulting in turn-based combat.
All nations, cities, armies, and events were carefully researched to ensure historical accuracy. The game is accessible for new users, while offering deeper gameplay for expert players.
