Historia Realis: Rome is a simulation game with a focus on historical realism.
Serve in the legions or study rhetoric. Become a lawyer or a conqueror. Perhaps be assassinated for your ideals, leaving your son to avenge you. Or be the killer who has to live with the consequences.
It's your history.
NPCs can do everything you can. Characters help and harm each other. You're just another one among thousands. All of them with goals, feelings, grudges, relationships and the complexity of the human experience.
Rise through the offices of the Cursus Honorum, starting as a Tribune or Quaestor and making it all the way up to Consul.
There's no set story, you make yours by playing. Assassinate rivals, seduce lovers, betray friends – history is yours to rewrite.
I’m a former history teacher who decided to make games.
I started as a hobby in 2012 during my master's degree in History. I fell in love with making games, so I went on to make Painters Guild (an art academy management sim) and Roguemance (a roguelite with romance). Oh, and I also made Robotherapy, a narrative game about robots doing therapy!
Historia Realis is my dream game. It takes you to Republican Rome and lets you do everything that the Romans did back then: socialize at the baths, sacrifice to the gods, and, of course, backstab your friends and eliminate your enemies!

Historia Realis is being developed by the community, for the community. We not only listen to player feedback (especially on Discord), but we go beyond and actually hire players to help develop the game.
