Game description:
It’s the year 1400- the late Middle Ages. Europe sees the dawn of the golden age of the new departures and the free spirit. Under the rule of the bourgeoisie and businessmen, more and more towns are emerging from the clutches of the aristocracy and are achieving independence, power and wealth. New businesses are flourishing, bringing financial strength and political influence to a growing economy.

However, life in the narrow, overpopulated alleyways and streets of the towns also has its downsides: epidemics and diseases are spreading, and thieves and highwaymen lie in wait to get their piece of the wealth. Now you can try your hand in these exciting times of change. Will you head down the path of an honest craftsman or a dubious priest? It’s your choice.

Wrapper update Civcity Rome and Myst URU Chronicles!

Wrapper update Civcity Rome and Myst URU Chronicles!

We do wrapper updates al the time, but when there are some significant updates we try to post them on the blog as much we can. So here the update for Civcity Rome ! The game needs core fonts, but the Porting Kit somehow failed the fonts trick into the wrapper, which caused you not to see the fonts in-game. With the latest Porting Kit version this is solved! So update Porting Kit (using the top bar menu –> check for updates) to fix the issue.

Myst URU Complete Chronicles had an issue concerning launch probably cause in one of the installer updates of GOG.com. This is fixed to now and doesn’t need an Porting Kit update. Refresh the server tab and make sure the GOG.com setup file is in the download folder and install the game and play
