Citizen of Rome - Dynasty Ascendant is a life simulator that was developed by CitizenOfRome and published by Sathvik Software Solutions. It was released on January 1st, 2019 and is available on Steam, Google Play, Apple AppStore, and itch.io.
The game is set in the Ancient Roman Republic. Experience life and events in Ancient Rome through multiple generations of a family, helping them grow from lowly commoners to mighty Senators. Long live the Republic! You get to see how life was in the Ancient Republic, participate in their various customs, festivals and Ludi/sporting competitions, while raising a family and moving up in the social and economic hierarchy in the Republic.
You can educate your children, marry them off, sponsor their elections and much more. You'll usually play as the eldest of your sons once your character dies. The game is open-ended without a set endgame just like in real life, but a grand goal for any ambitious Roman family was to land a Consulship of the republic. This ould be your goal in the game as well, climbing the Cursus Honorum and becoming a "New Man" - "Novus Homo"
The game just like fate will beat you down from time to time and you might find all that you worked for being taken away from you in an instant, but the way things are set up you'll almost certainly end up growing wealthy and reach the Senatorial class at some point despite various setbacks. There is no game-over and life goes on no matter what
A core philosophy of the game is that just like in real life, there's no winning or losing, just experiencing life and having fun at it no matter where it takes you. The game should be fun in its own way at every level, no matter if you're a prole or a senator, but with things just playing differently and with different goals and challenges
