Age of Empires Heaven is a site by HeavenGames, containing as much
as we have been able to put together about Age of Empires and its
The Rise of Rome, the Real Time Strategy (RTS) game by Microsoft and
What is Heavengames?
HeavenGames is a group of volunteers who have decided to host community
sites for a wide range of Real Time Strategy and City Building Games,
all of which are accessible from our navigation bar on the left.
Do you cover Age of Empires 2 or 3?
No. The games are sequels but otherwise have nothing to do with each
other and nor do they work with each other so we have separate Heavens
for each. For Age of Empires 2, also known as Age of Kings, visit
Age of Kings Heaven. For Age of Empires 3, visit
Age of Empires
What do the sections like Academy, Granary etc all mean?
The site is divided into sections that cover different aspects of
the game. The sections themselves are named after buildings in Age
of Empires. Clicking on any of the section titles will give you an
overview of what that section covers, but roughly they are as follows;
Academy - Information about how to improve your gameplay
Granary - Downloads and Game Information including our FAQs
Siege Workshop - Scenario and Map Design
Town Centre - Miscellaneous community information and links
I heard that AoEH was the oldest "Heaven". Is this
Yes and no. The original HeavenWeb, that later became HeavenGames,
was started by Mike McCart from Ensemble Studios and the first site
was actually for one of the Civilisation games. Age of Empires Heaven,
however, is the oldest surviving site since Mike left, the HG staff
took over and the sites moved to HeavenGames. It has been in operation
since May 15th, 1997.
