Announces Spice Road

Aartform today announced a new game
for Windows: Spice Road. Currently in development by Aartform Games, a new
London games studio, Spice Road is scheduled for a 2010 release.

"Deep in the mountains and deserts
of central Asia, where life is hard and death is sudden, thin trails of gold,
silk and spice trace a web between the industrial forges of the West and the
exotic climes of the East. You are a colonial governor in the 18th Century,
building a town on the Spice Road in a time of war and discovery. More than
spice travels your roads – musket armies, philosophies, and power plays that
span the globe are at your control." explains CEO Simon de Rivaz, "From palace
to monastery, trade post to brothel – your town is worthless without the nobles,
monks, merchants and whores that chose to live in it – and keeping them all
happy at the same time is never simple."

Spice Road will use the StormRaid
engine to deliver a beautiful fully 3D rendered world on high-end DirectX
graphics cards.
