Factory Sealed Retail DVD Style Box
History Is What You Make It! What if the Ancient Egyptians has worshiped the god of commerce? What if world leaders left global warming unchecked? What if Japan hadn't bombed Pearl Harbor? What if the Aztecs had invaded Spain? What if you led the world!
I fear that war is inevitable. Our Persian neighbors have been advancing their troops closer and closer as the weeks pass. I, Ramses, leader of the Egyptians, cannot allow them to take what is rightly ours. Little do they know that we have been building our own army of warriors, and we will surely be prepared for the time when they decide to try and take our land.
There is a revolution afoot among the growing middle class. My people have begun to murmur of democracy. My advisors warn me that my monarchy may be replaced with a democratic form of government. This troubles me greatly. Do my people not know how I have sacrificed for them? The students and political theorists proclaim that democracy will bring about happiness through social equality which will then lead to economic prosperity. But who among the working class is fit to rule?
My defensive espionage actions have enraged the Turks. To relieve political tensions, a contingent of Turkish emissaries recently traveled to Egypt seeking reparations. My representatives countered their diplomatic demands with a request to secede part of Turkish territory to Egypt. Displeased with this proposal, the Turks have begun to amass an army.
The world is in the midst of an industrial revolution, causing an alarming increase in pollution and overpopulation. Natural resources are becoming scarce. The development of Eco Transit will buy our scientists time to discover the material secrets required for underwater colonization.
