Corvo Bianco Entertainment // Villanus: Imperium Romanum PATREON Intro

Salve Internet! My name is Carmine Siena and I am the CEO and founder of Corvo Bianco Entertainment, an independent video games development studio based in Cologne, Germany. Games are my absolute
passion. Being raised with games and a love for technology, I always strived for entering
the market with either one of the big players or my very own video games
development studio. And the latter has come true earlier this year. For over a decade now, game design and programming were my hobbies and creating small
casual games and amusement. But now I am ready to go the next step and devote myself to a bigger and better project which is Villanus: Imperium Romanum,
whose development I started a few months ago. Villanus is a real-time strategy game
focusing on city-building, resource management and business simulation. As the name suggests, it is set in the ancient Roman Empire. You will be a praeses –a governor of Rome – being tasked with building a city and lead it to prosperity. Check out our announcement trailer; I put the link in the description
box below. I am developing Villanus completely on my own, meaning all the
programming, design and project management tasks. The soundtrack will
be composed by a very talented musician, Markus Strausfeld, who I am glad to be close
friends with. So, why should you become a patron? Are you as passionate about games as I am? Do you love strategy games as much as I
do? And would you love to see in this project being published? Then do not hesitate and become a patron! “But: hey, wait a second! What’s it in for me?”, you might ask yourself. A very fair question indeed. Becoming a patron offers here access to very cool benefits. Depending on the tier you
choose, these could range from either access to patron-only contents, early-access to devlogs, your name being mentioned at the end of the videos or even in the game’s credits screen, access to beta or alpha testing phases and more. Just head over to our Patreon page and check out all the tiers and their benefits, by either clicking on the link at the end of the video or the link that I put in
the description box below. The production of a video game is a very time, energy and resource consuming task, especially if you are a one-man studio and simultaneously doing your master’s studies. In order to dedicate as much time as possible to this project to 1) get it out in an appropriate time frame and 2) get it out in the best quality possible, I need to stay financially stable. And the best way to do so is to include you guys in a very early stage of development,
offering you no possibility to pledge for the game and to steer the way the
development is done. If the pledges grow to a certain level, I will be able to quit my side job and devote myself completely to Corvo Bianco Entertainment and Villanus: Imperium Romanum. This not only grants me more time
for developing the game, but also offers you the possibility to get even more features and stuff put into the game. Thanks for your attention guys and I
hope to see you joining me on this marvelous adventure. Until then: happy gaming and “in vino veritas”! Cheers, guys!
