mperium Romanum is a city builder strategy game, developed by Haemimont Games and published by Kalypso Media.
Imperium Romanum is set in the time-honoured Roman Empire and players will marvel in the incredible attention to detail when working on a strategy to build a well organised, prosperous and commanding settlement. As governor of a Roman province, the fortune very much lies in the players own hands.
