The game, by George Blank, first appeared in the December 1978 issue of SoftSide magazine and was published for sale on tape cassette as a computer game by Instant Software (Peterborough, NH) for the Radio Shack TRS-80, the Apple II, and the Commodore PET.
The game consists of yearly turns; each turn involves the allocation of grain and funds, attempting to grow the colony in both population and size.
Based loosely on the text game Hamurabi, Santa Paravia and Fiumaccio was an early God game. It combined 'guns and butter' economic tradeoffs with graphic development of a kingdom with buildings being constructed and shown on the screen as well as character development, shown as progressive promotions from baron to king.
