Kalypso’s latest empire-building effort is The Rise of Venice, and it’s wearing its proud Patrician and Port Royale heritage on its sleeves. Reportedly, however, The Rise of Venice is not just about making money but also being a smooth political manipulator, as you’ll need to earn the support of The Council of Ten in order to get anywhere in Venetian life.

Take a look at the trailer below and see if gets your trading blood pumping.

Looks just like Anno 1404…?

Most of these games are just ports with prettier graphics. Once you’ve played Patrician 2, you’ve played them all.

I know that exact feeling I played Anno for the best part of 3 years, before that Sid Mirer’s Railroads and now Minecraft and Borderlands 2.


My first thought was “hey I love these games where I’m given the opportunity to win without killing” but then the naval battles footage came up.

Even had the same narrator voice at the end of the trailer I’m sure of it
