Rise of Venice Website Launched and Screens

Rise of Venice drops players in the Renaissance era, where they start out as a young merchant, looking to make his mark and build a trading empire
The official website of Rise of Venice is now live, serving the latest info about this strategy/trading simulation developed for PC and scheduled for this autumn. As a young man striving for success, power and wealth and with the support of your family, you begin to build up a trading empire across Genoa, Tripoli, Rome, Alexandria, and Constantinople in addition to many other significant cities from the Renaissance.
As you progress through the ranks of Venetian society, increasing your power with smart trading moves and calling in the occasional favour, you can begin to assemble your own fleet. With this you will start to build up new production facilities and test yourself in challenging sea battles where you will face off against pirates as well as political enemies.
