Rome: The Lost Legacy is a fantasy spin on the history of Rome- a legion far from the Imperial City unknowingly marches into another realm, finding themselves in a struggle to preserve their culture and heritage in a foreign land. With great peril, these settlers must unite a land under their supreme commander and pave the way for a future empire.
New HUD, new programmer, and the start of solid production all mark this week as great progress towards Roma's BETA phase.

After several months off from Roma to work on other projects, I found a programmer willing to work on the game and help me accomplish the tasks I cannot do on my own in the 001 Engine, notably Line of Sight and Gathering. Already he has finished the prototype for wood gathering and line of sight. I added animations for carrying wood, stumps for dead trees, and standing frames for workers carrying wood.
The worker and his "moves" so far:
I've also remade the HUD to look quite a bit nicer (like I said, LOS is still a WIP):
Feel free to leave some thoughts on the work so far!
