From the Publisher...
At the dawn of civilization, take the destiny of a whole people into your hands.
In front of you, the plains of the Peloponnese stretch out. In the distance, the bright shores of the mythical Atlantis. However, in order to create a stable environment in this promised land, you will need to defeat your enemies, develop technologies, build wonders, and above all pray for the clemency of the gods who watch your every action from on high in their abode on Olympos!
