Citizen of Rome - Dynasty Ascendant is a family/Dynasty life sim set in the Roman 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 take over as one of your children once your character dies, and live through the generations.

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 could be your goal in the game as well, climbing the Cursus Honorum and becoming a "New Man" - "Novus Homo"

WARNING: 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

A Master Debater ,

Good game, but the graphic are too large.

The cards that make up the dialogue in the game are far too big and make playing the game quite cumbersome. I don't think the text needs to be that large and it would be better if I could read and see all the options without having to scroll. Some other UI features to make the game more easy to play is splitting up the properties into their respective categories (eg, animals, farms, etc) to eliminate even more scrolling. You could create a separate tab for education and marriage as I often find myself forgetting to do those options when I put them aside for later like when I lack the money to fund them right at that moment and I wanna do it later. Some filtering options for the main screen would also be epic, so that we can quickly see which person has the best or worst of whatever characteristic or trait you wanna see. But again, the size of cards is just annoying but the gameplay and art is otherwise fantastic.

Game Gets Stuck

I LOVE this game and have been playing for months now. It’s borderline addicting. However, recently the game’s been getting stuck at certain points, and any progress i make won’t be saved after i exit out. The only way to fix it is to reset everything. Like i said, i’ve been playing for months, and i never had this problem before, so i think it may just be a bug with the latest update. Everything else is golden!

The lost sister lives!

My very first character had a son and a daughter. Even though the son was my heir, I favored his sister. I even educated her instead of her brother. Unfortunately when my first character died in battle, the heir took over and the sister disappeared from my family view, I couldn’t find her and got very sad. She had just started her apprenticeship! I considered quitting the game but I was having fun so I didn’t. Two generations later, I finally played around and checked my first character’s family tree and there she was! She was long dead but in her long life she managed to get married, find a good job and had living two sons with their own families. I was really happy because I thought she had just disappeared into the void.

If you enjoy character building you’ll like this game but be careful because if you’re anything like me you might get really attached.
