Just Play has today announced that it will publish Spartan in the UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, Scandinavia, and a number of other European territories in March next year. The turn-based strategy game, which is currently in development at Slitherine Strategies, focuses on the Ancient Greeks and will challenge players to lead any of 100 different nations, including Sparta, to victory.
"We are, of course, delighted to be working with Slitherine Strategies on Spartan as it further enhances our reputation for championing the cause of turn-based games and our continued support of small, but highly talented development teams as demonstrated by the recent success of Laser Squad Nemesis and Korsun Pocket," said Bob Malin, brand manager at Just Play. "We also aim to capitalize on the increased interest in Ancient Greece generated by the various movies scheduled for release in 2004 that are set in the period, such as Troy and Gates of Fires which recreates the battle of Thermopylae."
Spartan will feature over 40 different troop types across 10 ethnic cultural groups, and will be played on an authentic campaign map of Ancient Greece as it was around 400BC.
