Caesar 3 in 2021
We have given Caesar 3 Heaven a small make-over: the site has been modernized a bit: it’s now possible to use the site on phone without having to zoom and scroll, plus we have added a search feature in the sidebar on the left.
If you’re interested in buying the game nowadays, both GOG and Steam have it available.
In addition, let me point out two open source projects that might be of interest:
The first one is Julius, an open source implementation for Caesar 3. Do you want widescreen support, effortless windowed mode and more little tweaks to make your life easier, but the same gameplay experience as Caesar 3? Get Julius.
The next one is Augustus, which builds on Julius to give you whole new gameplay components: roadblocks, global labour, more control over walkers, increased game limits, and the latest release even contained monuments.
Both projects are compatible with the GOG, Steam and old CD-ROM versions of the game.
Caesar IV Heaven Opens
I know a great many of us have been awaiting this moment. Eagerly awaiting this moment. After playing every single Caesar 3 scenario in more ways than the designers thought possible..."Hey, let's do Carthago without prefects!" we can soon take on Carthago in a different way.
Tilted Mill, known from Children of the Nile, but also from many of their staff having been involved in earlier citybuilders, have recreated the Glory that was Rome...erm, or rather. the Glory that was Caesar 3.
Caesar 4 will be bringing back familiar places and familiar faces, such as prefects and engineers, but now in glorious 3D, with factories, with day and night, with weather. I checked out the demo and was hooked. Caesar 4 brings our favourite citybuilder into the 21st century.
So, with little further ado, I'd like to welcome you to Caesar 4 Heaven. We're a bit bare bones at the moment, but we will make this the place to go should you need information about the game, its scenarios, and its history.
I hope you'll enjoy our efforts.
Caesar IV announced
Tilted Mill and Vivendi have announced that they are developing Caesar IV.
Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games) today announced development of Sierra Entertainment's Caesar™ IV, the sequel to the million unit plus selling Caesar™ III, scheduled for release in 2006. Building on the award-winning formula of its predecessor, Caesar IV takes the city-building genre into the 21st century, with new gameplay and features, and a cutting edge 3D graphics engine developed specifically for the title.
Developed by Tilted Mill, Caesar IV advances, refines and updates the city-building gameplay pioneered by Caesar III, while remaining true to its predecessor's proud legacy. In Caesar IV, players take on the role of an aspiring provincial governor within Caesar's empire as they build and manage an individual ancient Roman city and its province.
