A friend and I are trying to find a game that we used to play in primary school in the mid-to-late 90s in the UK.
It was set in a roman town from an isometric viewpoint. You would have to walk around town, learning how to do various jobs such as using a watermill, making pottery in a kiln and setting up under floor heating.
There was also an Anglo saxon version of the game where you had to hang armor on the walls of the great Hall and other such tasks. I may be mixing up which tasks were in which game.
We played this game in England, so we are unsure if it was anywhere else in the world.
This year wasn't so great because it was a lot of known quantities: Call of Duty is going to be Call of Duty, Medal of Honour is going to be Medal of Honour and so on.
Even the indie games corner wasn't super exciting for me. There were three different "wonder around and marvel how pretty the environment is" games that take way too much investment than I'm willing to give at an expo, while others are already available to play online.
I did enjoy the X-Com multiplayer, which was my highlight of the show. I had an advantage over my friend, having already played the demo, so I smoked him. I won this neat shirt as a result:
Also, there was a foosball table. May have enjoyed that more than some of the games there.
