Chariots is a racing game set loosely in ancient history. Players can race on foot, horseback or in a chariot. It is primarily a single player game, but can accommodate up to 14 players on a LAN or user-hosted Internet server. There are a variety of types of races as well as some collection quests for the players to complete. Chariots is unique in that it provides an immersive role-playing experience to the racing, where players must traverse the island of Cyprus to find the races in nearby cities. Actual historical names of Cyprus cities were chosen for the creation of this game, players may recognise some of them from archeological studies, or the Bible.
