greGAMES! announces
The Judgment of Quintus

Rome (52 AD)—Fasten your togas! greGAMES! announces The Judgment of Quintus, a madcap romp through Ancient Rome. From the makers of Jessica Plunkenstein and the Düsseldorf Conspiracy, which the New York Times hailed as the Best Adventure Game of 2005, The Judgment of Quintus unites classical lore and legend into an uproarious adventure of epic proportions.

Disaster approaches the Roman Empire. The primitive Britannic tribes—which, incidentally, are much like their modern counterparts, but with better teeth—are about to launch a revolt of unimaginable proportions. Realizing they possess neither the martial nor culinary prowess to conquer Rome, the Britons have concocted a dastardly plan: to build an army of Anglo Squirrels. When released on Rome, the nefarious rodentia will consume the city's grain reserves, causing famine—or, should Romans switch to meat products, high blood pressure—across the nation.

Rome herself is no stranger to Botanical Warfare, having weathered the Great Squirrel Crises of 27, 29, and 34 – 40 AD. To solve such problems in the past, the Romans prayed to Vesta, Goddess of the Hearth and Squirrel Smitery. Unfortunately, an unknown force has weakened the gods as of late, and Olympus is being swallowed by the Something. With the heavens in shambles, more and more Romans are converting to Calpurnipalianism—a mysterious religion which, founded by and devoted to the empress Calpurnia, has recently attracted a slew of celebrity adherents, including the famed gladiator Necantio.

After a fateful prophecy, Quintus, assistant publicist to Necantio, finds himself on a journey to save Rome from the brink of ruin. Can he uncover the Calpurnipalian Church's deadly secret, restore power to Olympus, and save Rome from the forces—squirrel and otherwise—that imperil the empire? He'd certainly better, for Rome depends on The Judgment of Quintus.

Mystery! Suspense! Anglo Squirrels! What else could you ask for? Well, The Judgment of Quintus also offers:

  • An epic journey that takes you around and about the Roman Empire with day trips to Olympus, the Underworld, and lands as exotic as their pronunciation.
  • Countless dangers including evil sorceresses, would-be alchemists, plush animals, celebrity judges, overprotective parents, underzealous children, expectorant actors, resilient stagehands, tour groups, vestal vegans, Major-Generals, General-Majors, and, the most feared of all beasts, the Gladiopossum.
  • Thrilling characters who defy all description, except that found here.
  • Pure professionalism.  From sharp, zany writing to inspired artwork, as well as professional voice acting and a dynamic score recorded by live musicians, The Judgment of Quintus holds itself to the highest production values and promises nothing short of an amazing theatrical experience.

The Judgment of Quintus is scheduled for release in 2007! To keep in-the-know (and to look smarter than your friends), visit www.gregames.net/games/quintus.
