"For Eternity - Imhotep's Children" actually started as a game jam game by our main developer. It was based very loosely on the theme that was given.
It's initial design was inspired by Sierra's city-builder series, especialy the game "Pharaoh". One of the most notable differences is that "Pharaoh" is made in 2.5 D, while our game is a full 3D game with 360 degrees of rotation. There are some mayor and minor differences but the core-gamplay is quite similar.
The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. So we made the decision, that this was something worth pursuing. After a deep dive into the project made during the jam we came to the conclusion that it was a good prototype but not something that would meet our expectation of quality of a final product, so we rebuild the whole game from the ground up.
