Caesar is a popular economic strategy of the late 90s and early 2000s. Unfortunately, there is no” natural ” Caesar for Linux and even no free one yet, but this wonderful game can be played using WINE.
In the game Caesar 3, you will manage the development of the Roman city, creating places for housing, recreation and work of citizens, thereby increasing its number and well-being. I think there are few fans of computer games not familiar or at least heard about this game.

You start with an empty field and a single road and begin to build up the area with places for residential buildings, adding prefectures and engineering structures to protect the residents and hire workers. Then gradually add more and more buildings to produce food, build larger dwellings, trade, and make a profit for the glory of the gods and the emperor!

To begin with, I copied the contents of the CD into one folder, so that I wouldn’t have to paste it every time I accessed it.

You can do this either by double clicking from the nautilus window or in the terminal go to the folder and run the command:
