About the game

Ludus is a Business simulation/Role playing game (BSRPG?) currently in pre-production and is being developed by useful slug

The initial target platforms are Windows, Mac and Linux.

In Ludus you play as the head of a gladiator school. In your pursuit of becoming a successful Lanista, you must procure good slaves, train them as gladiators and put on amazing shows to the roar of the crowds.

In order to be commissioned for new games, you must also pick your friends and enemies carefully as you navigate your way through the deceitful social environment where every pleb, magistrate and senator is looking out for themselves. Socialize with the best people in society, and cut deals with the worst.

  1. Hey,
    I’ve been Googling for just such a game every six months, and coming up short, cant for the life of me understand why it hasn’t been done yet. Sounds like you have a good plan and what you’ve done so far looks good to me, keep it up.

  2. I happen to be designing the same kind of game and was going to call it Ludus but it seems you guus beat me to it lol. Your style is much different to mine as mine is a little more on the player leveling as a gladiator rather than running a Ludus.

    I do hope you guys keep it up, and maybe if you ever want to have some help all the way from Gibraltar i’d be honoured 🙂
