Dotemu, a French publisher whose mission is to bring retro games to modern platforms, has partnered with developer Triskell Interactive According to Théophile Noiret, Pharaoh is the most complex and accomplished of the City Builders series developed by Impression Games in the late90s. If you want to become a real pharaoh and build your monumental city on the banks of the Nile, then Team Dotemu is the one for you. The original Pharaoh game dates back to 1999, when it was published by Impressions Games and Sierra Entertainment. The organizers took the opportunity to interview Theophile Noiret, co-founder of Triskell Interactive, about the progress of Pharaoh’s. They have developed and released more than fifteen games for consoles, PC and mobile devices, striving to find the perfect balance between nostalgia and modern expectations. There’s no release date yet, but Triskell is “eager” to fulfill “his” promise and introduce the final product in 2021. Neure explains that the gameplay of the original will be preserved because the structure of the game is extremely complex, with many interdependent subsystems. The original release created a balance that defined an entire genre at the time. In addition, the full graphical reconstruction will retain the 2D isometric perspective of the original, but with new hand-drawn characters, buildings and environments. Another partner, the Paris-based video game publisher Dotemu, is a fan of “retro gaming.” In practice, this means giving all gamers access to yesterday’s classic video games on modern platforms. What’s new in the development of New Age? Things have been quiet for a few months, until the spring 2021 issue of AG French Direct comes out. It’s time for video game journalism to take its rightful place as a true source, not fanboys providing free advertising. They are in the process of bringing back “the best historical urban planner to date,” as they enthusiastically call it on Steam.
