Caesar’s Triumph (Formerly CryptoRome)
Jon Parise, Co-founder/CMO: "We completed an exciting rebrand of the game, from CryptoRome to Caesar’s Triumph. The general thinking behind this is that the new name better captures the essence of the game, both the military and economic strategy that goes into it. CryptoRome, at face value, could sound like a cryptocurrency or a knockoff version of CryptoKitties set in Rome. This was our intuition but we also received this feedback from players. Blockchain games will win when all gamers come on board, not just the crypto-savvy. The name change is the removal of one such potential barrier.
We’re excited! It’s a step along the path towards growth. We’re also making solid progress on the next iteration of the battle game: moving from daily battles settled in 3-hour sessions to an ongoing (never-ending) battle where land defense becomes vitally important. This was the initial vision for the game and we’re closer to realizing that then ever. Players are still actively upgrading their Centurions and leveling up barracks in preparation for this epic next step!"
