Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Interesting and not too difficult

This game is a lovely drama set during the Roman empire. Though the accuracy of the historical details isn't too impressive, the game itself is gorgeous and has an interesting story. Great for helping kids really sink their teeth into the atmosphere of Roman history.
