Appears that this is Patrician 3 with a little more politics... ;)

Hello,

Ascaron, the developers of the Port Royal/Patrician series went bankrupt. Kalypso gobbled up Ascaron's old employees and formed a studio out of them; Gaming Minds Studio. The product of which seems to be a game meant to reboot those two series, but for legal reason I imagine, they can't just name it port royal or patrician. When I gave it a cursory glance, I thought it might be a game like the guild. Sadly, it doesn't appear to be such.

Cheers,
Michael

I cannt beleave, any Ascaron Emploees are in the Gaming Minds. Ascaron made wonderfull games and the Gaming Minds production is just crap. Each game they did - PR 4, Patrician 4 were very poor. They are not able to make anything, like Kontor.
