Prosperity – Italy, 1434: the year the destiny of medieval central Italy changed forever. A new era was about to spring, Renaissance. Events of great significance occur both under a political and religious profile that shocked all of Europe at the time: a fleeing pope was certainly not something to be taken lightly, as well as the new view of the rule of the Medici in the city of Florence.
Behind Prosperity lies extensive research and study, because we wanted the Middle Ages! Attention has been given to details normally overlooked in games. Be prepared to feel like you are traveling in time as you take a visual and emotional journey through the events of the time period!
Prosperity is the Middle Ages!
Two events stand out above others: Cosimo establishes power of the Medici family over Florence and Pope Eugenio IV flees Rome from citizens in uproar.
Both of these events shocked not only Italy, but all of Europe at the time: the Papal State influenced the entire known world! On the other hand, as we all know, the rule of the Medici opened doors to the hegemony of Florence and its militias.
Behind Prosperity lies extensive research and study, because a video game set in the medieval time period was not enough for us, we wanted the Middle Ages! So don’t expect a walk in the park, but instead prepare yourself for plague and famine!
Naturally, we had to come to some compromises regarding gameplay, and for this reason we decided to simplify the alliances to Imperial and Papal so as not to overwhelm players who may be less accustomed to historical data.
1434 has also been chosen in light of its great transformation of costumes and armor dating from the late middle ages to the early renaissance: during that year the inventory of weapons, armor, and siege weapons was extremely rich in terms of variety; in this way, Lords will have a vast selection of items to satisfy the needs of their troops and tournament champions!
Above all else, attention has been given to details normally overlooked in games: the lifespan of nobles and peasants, raw materials used, special items, typical events of the Italian Middle Ages, and much more that you will discover once inside the world of Prosperity. Be prepared to feel like you are traveling in time as you take a visual and emotional journey through the events of the time period!
Each player will be a Lord capable of changing the fate of history… because Prosperity is not a game, Prosperity is the Middle Ages!
