Stellaris: Paradox Interactive IN SPACE
« on: July 23, 2015, 10:41:37 pm »

Well, today Paradox decided to announce a new game that they're working on: Project Augustus. This is a new IP, and... that's all we know so far. Hints are promised every weekday until Gamescon where it will be revealed.

Hint #1: 7 and 3 are important numbers.
Hint #2: There will be no stabbing of pigs.
Hint #3: Terrain truly matters in this game.

EDIT: This now has a name and screenshots, and they're somewhere in this thread. Somewhere.

I'm going to assume its about the venerable Augustus Minimus, famed Cybertronian philosopher from 10 million years before the Autobot/Decepticon war.  It'll be a rhythm/typing tutor game where you write Cybertronian poems to the beat of the music.

Nothing but a project name and it being a new IP.

I am secretly hoping that you are right, just so that I can go into a giggling fit over it.

Seriously, ATHATH, we need to have an intervention about your death mug problem.

*slow clap* Well ATHATH congratulations. You managed to give the MC a mental breakdown before we even finished the first arc.

Clearly the name is a reference to US Governor Augustus Owsley Stanley, indicating a 19th-20th century political simulator ala Crusader Kings, but for modern republics.

Nah, clearly it's a simulator of the colour purple. It'll be a multiplayer rogue-lite spycraft and statecraft advanced plutocratic idiosyncratic senate-syntax assimilation of modern day policies merged with historical precedent revolving around purple and all its meanings.

Clearly it's a game where you run the most prestigious salad-restaurant in the world.

You should really look to the wilderness for your stealth ideas, it has been doing it much longer than you have after all. Take squids for example, that ink trick works pretty well, and in water too! So you just sneak into the dam upsteam, dump several megatons of distressed squid into it, then break the dam. Boom, you suddenly have enough water-proof stealth for a whole city!

Seriously though, it will be a game set in the ancient Rome. However, instead of a strategy game - which would be continuing in the steps of Rome and this is new IP - it will be a first-person adoption simulator. You play Julius Ceasar, who is bleeding from multiple stabbing wounds, who must stumble through Rome looking for the best possible candidate as your adult man-child.

Project Augustus? Clearly about implementing and spreading the Julian Calendar across the world. A grand calendary game, if you will.
