Trivia

The game was originally conceived during one of the developer’s university studies

The game became involved in several interdisciplinary projects focused on the study of ancient Middle Eastern history.

The game made its way into the book "Gaming the Past" by Jeremiah McCall, which explores the use of computer games in history education, and the author himself uses the game in his ancient history classes.


Development challenges

The complexity of isometric 2D graphics, a factor the developers initially didn't fully realize, especially when combined with a completely custom game engine.

At first, they developed their own project in their spare time, but after having worked more than ten years in the mainstream game industry, they eventually decided to leave their jobs and finish their game project, Nebuchadnezzar (2021).
