Kingdoms & Castles

Post by Leezar » March 15th, 2017, 7:34 am

This title caught my eye;

https://www.gog.com/game/kingdoms_castles

From what I can see, the graphics are clean, just like Eschalon, if though a bit simple (then again, Eschalon 1 is also perhaps a bit simple).

I have decided to preorder this thing so in... well whenever it is finished, if there is anyone interested, I can drop my thoughts after playing it.

I just hope it isn't another micromanaging nightmare like late game civ, or slow, dull and tedious as fuck like Heroes of Might and Magic or shallow and uninteresting like Tropico - I hope it will be more like Warlords, Warlords Battlecry, Myth or Alpha Centauri.

Any idea whether it's real-time or turn-based/pauseable while you queue up actions?

Well... judging from the vid, which I really should not, as it is a pre-alpha vid, it is real time. Looks a bit like settlers (lets hope it is not like settlers or my 10 bux just went down the drain).

But, I am an omnivore when it comes to these kind of games. Turnbased, RT or weird mix, it doesnt matter to me, as long as the gameplay is good.

There are some YouTube vids about this game, no pause button there yet, but it would be odd if they left it without.

I do like the graphics of this game, simple can be pleasing. I just dislike manga-style cartoonish. If the game comes out it would be great if you would share your experiences, Leezar.
Now and then I like a sim-type game, there hasn't been too much in the genre lately, although I'm also not playing games much anymore. I'm seeing there's also a game called Northgard (no 'u' in that) which could fall into the same category. It's on Steam Early Access, getting some good feedback and might be worth keeping an eye on.
