Development Diary #7: Get Sicker and die harder



Hello and welcome to another Developer Diary about getting sick and dying! Previously I talked about this in the personal sense, but today I will tell you what we have done to Epidemics.

In our upcoming but still unannounced DLC, we have added many more scriptable values to Epidemic diseases which allows us to do many more interesting things with them. I’ll skip the technical details here, but Epidemics can now spread along the Silk road when present, and are more likely to spread to rich and coastal provinces while being less likely to spread to poorer inland areas. Different Epidemics can have different speeds and likelihoods of spreading, as well as different maximum provinces they can spread to and durations to last for.

Epidemics also have another effect now, they can cause Depopulation in a province. Depopulation is a modifier on the province which reduces tax incomes, levy/garrison sizes, and supply limits. Different diseases have different chances of causing Depopulation, and the effects can remain long after the diseases have died out.

Of course, I can’t talk about Epidemics without mentioning The Black Death, since it was a somewhat notable event in the CK2 period. In the past, the Plague hasn’t been too impressive, but now… well now we have made some changes:

while it's possible for the Plague to come from central asia and bypass India, in this instance it arrived in the North-east of the subcontinent and spread throughout it and outwards. Meanwhile, England has Smallpox.

As well as making The Black Death larger and more deadly, we felt it was a shame you’d have to play until 1300 to experience it. So, in our generosity we made The Black Death more dynamic and there is now a chance for a major outbreak to occur 200 years into any game, regardless of startpoint (and the 1300 outbreak of course remains possible too). After a major outbreak has happened the disease becomes endemic and may break out again, but likely on a smaller scale. I should note that the dynamic Plague is a Game Rule, so if you want to restrict the first outbreak to 1300+ it’s still possible.

Is it all doom and gloom in this DLC? Well no, not entirely. As I mentioned previously, Court Physicians will try to treat your illnesses, and you will also be able to build Hospitals, and/or go into Seclusion to attempt to avoid infection - but those are topics for a future DD. Until then, contemplate your mortality.

Development Diary May 17th - We Don't Talk About The Dead



Hi!

It is my turn to write a DD for CK2 and it is about something that perhaps we don’t mention that often: Audio.

Or more specific for this entry; Death Screams & SFX.

For the new expansion I got an important task, it was to create new sound effects for executing characters and also create assets for other ways different characters can die in the game such as falling off a balcony or being mauled by a bear.

So basically for this task I did a bunch of research to see how cruel people were back in the days and how “creative” they could be when executing people.

I needed to create a lot of “gore” sound effects so to achieve this I went out and did some grocery shopping.


The leek and celery were to recreate some “sweet” and intense bone cracking sound effects while the pepper and salad were to create a “slow crushing” sound effect.

The big problem for this task was a major one; Screams. And a lot of them.

So I took the opportunity to do some internal auditions and invited co-workers to the torture chamber aka sound studio.

Another challenge was to get people to sound like they are… dying? I got to do a lot of “dummy” recordings where you could hear me die in different ways, and some of these recordings made their way into the expansion as well, so my co-workers could get to “dub” me or have some kind of a reference.

I’ll not tell you who is dying, that is up to you to guess. \m/

Here we have a female version of being impaled:

Here is a version from the Spanish method of garroting:

There could be a few hunting accidents:

Or sometimes people went kind of extreme with burning people:

Few causes when people were thrown down into a nasty pit:

Recenze

“...playing is winning, and there’s something quite satisfying about leading your house to power and glory through whatever means you can, for as long as you can.”
9,5/10 – Strategy Informer

“In short, Crusader Kings II is a majestic feudal sandbox, the greatest generator of hilarious medieval soap opera ever created and Paradox Interactive’s best title to date.”
90/100 – IncGamers

“It's perfectly possible to have made a few too many enemies, anger the Pope and find most of Europe out for your blood. That's really what makes the game so damn fun.”
9/10 – Destructoid

Informace o hře

Konec Temných časů se možná blíží, ale v Evropě stále vládne chaos. Malicherná šlechta soupeří proti oslabeným králům, kteří se stále snaží prosazovat vládu nad svými roztříštěnými říšemi. Papež svolal křížovou výpravu, aby ochránil křesťany ve Svaté zemi, a to i přes to, že se odmítl vzdát kontroly nad jmenováním biskupů - a jejich bohatstvím. Nastaly významné dny. Rozšiřte vaše panství a zabezpečte budoucnost vaší dynastie. Naplňte své truhlice, jmenujte si vazaly, skoncujte se zrádci a kacíři, prosaďte zákony a spolupracujte se stovkami šlechticů, z jichž každý má svoje problémy.
Dobrý a spravedlivý pán vždy potřebuje přátele, kteří ho budou podporovat. Ale pozor, loajální vazalové se mohou rychle proměnit v nenávistné soupeře, někteří z nich zkrátka nejsou tak spolehliví, jak se zdají... Buďte na vše připraveni a zlepšujte si svou pověst, dokud si nebude celý svět šeptat vaše jméno v bezmezné úctě. Máte to, co je potřeba, abyste se stali Křižáckým králem?
Crusader Kings II se zabývá historickou etapou, která ovlivnila další vývoj celého světa, v herním zážitku mistrně vytvořeném přeborníky na skvělé strategické hry. Epická hra plná králů, intrik a trůnů vdechla život středověké Evropě...

Hlavní rysy:

  • Začněte hrát od jakéhokoli okamžiku mezi lety 1066 a 1337 a hrajte až do roku 1453
  • Vyberte si svého křesťanského pána a zajistěte, aby jeho dynastie přežila prostřednictvím sukcese jeho dědiců
  • Zvyšte prestiž každému následníkovi trůnu, za kterého budete hrát, a prohlubujte tak slávu vaší dynastie
  • Rozšiřte své feudální panství - a zabraňte jeho rozpadu
  • Odhalte spiknutí vašich dvořanů a vazalů, z nich každý má svou představu o tom, jak vládnout
  • Ujměte se Kříže a bojujte proti Maurům, bezvěrcům a kacířům
  • Braňte se prudkému útoku Mongolské hordy

If you have even remotely poor eyesight, avoid this game. I found it very difficult to read the large blocks of text required to understand the game. This is the only game I've played in recent memory that I've had this problem with.

Game seems fun, but I can't recommend it to anybody that has difficulty reading small print.

This game beat out Fallout 3 as my favorite game of all time. If you can get past the steep learning curve that most Paradox games have, you'll find the best diplomacy system ever implemented in a game, where one choice will bear fruit generations later.

This game is realy good. And, if you want, you can makes stories out of it. Like my 200 year gameplay as house Breizh (Kingdom of Brittany) A nice story, but i cant remember it good enough to tell it :(

But you can make better stories, or create big country... or a little one. You can start big, you can start small. Maybe you are a vassal? or maybe you want to play in Westheros (GoT mod)? You can do it in this game. Just buy it... but be carefull.
This game have one problem (besides occasional bugs) many DLC´s. You want to play as pagan? DLC! You want to play as a horde? DLC! You want to start game in earlier? DLC! You want to play as muslim? DLC! Republic? India? DLC!
But not only big ones, i can understand those big ones. But things like, make african... their color (hope it sounds ok), or indians, arabs, franks, germans, norse, finns, russians, and so on and so on. Or MANY other things, as a DLC. But if you can buy it, or live without it, you gonna have a GOOD time.

Amazing Grand Strategy game. The game revolves around your character and their dynasty, rather than the country itself. It contains a large amount of thought provoking strategy and scenarios for you, and the harder the challenge, the more fun I have.

9.5/10 game, Merchant Republics still OP and I love them.

In what other game can you seduce and marry your sister to aquire the rights of both Norway and England, and then hire an assassin to kill her with lots and lots of dung?

In what other game can you sleep with a rival king's daughters and kill any suitors that meet their fancy, to ensure that your future generations get the rights to your kingdoms, and your rival's?

In what other game can you sex your way to total domination?

69/10. Would dominate europe by lots of sexing again.

A very good game for those who enjoy the viking to medieval eras of europe northern africa and the middle east. Pick a person to emulate and try to be the very best like no one ever was. Kill all your enemies and seduce all the women in the kingdom with your super amazing charms!. Political intrigue and etc etc etc, theres alot ot offer from this game and its complex but less so then europa in my opinion which will make it more accessible to those new to the grand strategy genre as it focuses more on the interactions between the characters you control and those around you. I wouldnt recommend that you buy this game without any dlc like I did as it made it a huge hassle later down the line to buy every single dlc seperately. This game will frequently be on sale for 75% off and more and you should purchase it along with all of its dlcs at the same time to get the best experience from the game, you can exclude the ebooks if you dont plan on reading them. A must own for fans of medieval history and "what ifs" like me who want to see what could of happened

10/10

This is quite possibly the best game on steam.

Its hard to play and learn, but once you get it, it rewards 10 fold.
Ive been a tyrant and slept with all my vassals wives, ive contracted small pox, had children with smallpox and crossed them with leppers. I have a sickly family tree but its big. married genius to morons, dwarfs to ugly people.

I have had a ball playing this over and over and losing time and time again, because of a stupid decision, like becoming a heretic or deciding to clame a title whos owner has a 10x army and allies. This is a programming marvel really, id hate to be one of the developers (well most of the time id prolly love to write a game like this)

I have spent over $200 on all the DLC, Concaive is interesting, but i prefer vanilla. I almost always play as Ireland because i havent managed to finish a game yet :) and ive tried. I like to play on hard. this is a game i will be playing all my life and espically something to look forward to in the undesirable event im hospitalized and about to die. I can play CK2 between chemo sessions. 10/10 - Keep the DLC comming and MOD MOD MOD. :)

I am King Énri IV 'the Great' Ivaring of Ireland, Wales, France, Castille, Galicia, and León. Son of King James Ivaring and Queen Marina Jimena.

My father was known to be a just man, many spoke of his name with praise. He managed to convince the Pope to grant him the right to conquer France, which was in a civil war. During the war whilst leading his glorious army he was maimed. Shortly after winning the war he died. At the young age of 2, I was crowned King.

I spent my childhood learning a various subjects, I did well in most of them but exelled in military matters. When I was 14, a civil war erupted in my realm, most of which were the angry French. This was the perfect oppitunity of using my skills that I learnt in the arts of war. Although I did not directly lead anyone, I was not far behind, with the greatest generals devising plans to win the war. The beggining of the war did not go well, but with my mother attacking from the south and I from the north, they could only fend off one. They went after me. The fools. Suddenly, the war leaned towards me, and soldier by soldier, the French armies depleted. Only 15 years old, I managed to win a war thought impossible, it was this that named me 'the Great'.

In the following years, the realm was at peace and was prospering under my rule. Many unloyal vassals were crushed and replaced with more loyal vassals. I did not expand the realm much by conquest but when my mother died I inherited her kingdoms, but this came with a heavy cost, yet again unloyal vassals. Another civil war happened, which was defeated with ease.

My rule is now coming to an end, I leave this world knowing that I have laid down the foundations for my decendants, for the sun will never set on my kingdom.



(( Just a note, this game is absolutely amazing and you should buy it, now. Also, get AGOT mod, it is really good. Seriously, you can ride a dragon, A DRAGON!!!!!!! ))

tl;dr - výborná grand strategie s netradičním systémem vládce a poddaných a propracovanou diplomacií.

Historickým obdobím nejstarší ze známých grand strategií z dílen švédského studia Paradox Interactive. Se svým rodem budete vládnout jedné z mnohých středověkých říší a společně prožijete její slavná vítězství i potupné porážky na poli jak bitevním, tak i diplomatickém.

Tak jako v každé grand strategii od Paradoxu, i v CK2 si můžete vybrat z jakéhokoliv „státu“ na mapě a hrát za něj. Nebudete ale hrát přímo za tento stát, ale za jeho panovnický rod – k tomu ale více až později. Rody se dělí podle svého náboženství a své kultury. Pro každou tuto kombinaci existuje do značné míry unikátní herní styl a proto hra za křesťanský královský rod v Evropě bude ze své podstaty odlišná od hry za sultanát z Blízkého východu.

Jak jsem již zmínil, ve hře neovládáte celý stát, ale pouze svůj rod – konkrétně jednoho zrovna vládnoucího panovníka. To je hlavní prvek, kterým se CK2 odlišuje od ostatních grand strategií od Paradoxu a který vás bude doprovázet po celou dobu hraní. Přímo vaše postava může efektivně vlastnit pouze omezené množství herních políček a zbytku vládne prostřednictvím svých poddaných. Ti můžou a nemusí uposlechnout vaše rozkazy – především v závislosti na tom, jak moc vás mají v oblibě. Pak se může třeba stát, že vám neposkytnou k dispozici svoje vojáky pro válku se sousedním státem nebo proti vám můžou dokonce začít rebelii. To může být zásadní problém, pokud je těchto vzbouřenců více a pokud vaše vlastní armáda není dostatečně silná. To se vám poté vaše dlouho budovaná říše může během několika let zcela rozpadnout.

Proto je ve hře diplomacie snad ještě důležitější než válčení. Pokud vás vaši poddaní mají rádi a pokud vám jsou ochotni poskytnout většinu své armády, máte splněnou základní podmínku pro výhru války. V některých systémech dokonce funguje i určitá forma republiky a tam musíte dokonce i žádat svoji radu pro svolení k některým vašim akcím.

K vyhlášení války jinému státu a především k expanzi vašich hranic musíte vždy mít nějaký legitimní důvod, tzv. casus belli – jak to známe i z ostatních grand strategií od Paradoxu. Získat tento důvod není vždy jednoduché a zpravidla také nelze během jedné války získat (nebo ztratit) velkou část území – expanze vaší říše je tedy během na dlouho trať. I zde to ale závisí na kulturním zázemí vaší postavy – např. pro válčení se státy jiného náboženství bývá většinou získání zmíněného casus belli jednodušší.

Základním prvkem ale je, že hrajete opravdu jen za jednu postavu. Vaše postava má vlastnosti, které ovlivňují vaše schopnosti vládnout a které lze vylepšovat a nebo se můžou některými událostmi také zhoršit. Pokud vaše postava umře, tak začnete hrát za jejího hlavního dědice, který opět může být určen mnoha způsoby, v závislosti na dědickém systému. Při dědění můžete a nemusíte přijít o některá vlastnická práva. Dokud ale jste naživu, tohoto dědice neovládáte a může na vás klidně zkusit připravit past, ve které zemřete.

Hra je opravdu zábavná a každého stratéga dokáže vtáhnout na mnoho desítek, ale klidně i stovek hodin. Vzhledem k tomu, že celá hra se odehrává na jedné obrovské mapě, tak se lehce dostanete do situace známé i z jiných strategií – ještě získám tento kousek území, ještě vyřeším tuto vzpouru, ještě odstraním tohoto poddaného – a najednou jsou 4 hodiny ráno.

Nemůžu ale nezmínit jednu věc, která mě irituje – i když se netýká přímo hry. Jsou to DLCčka. Paradox je známý tím, že jich vydává pro své hry spoustu. Dost často se ale jedná o rozšíření, která vám přidají pár nových funkcí za 15 € a mohla by být mnohem levnější, nebo jen některé balíčky, které by měly být zdarma k jinému, většímu DLCčku nebo k hlavní hře. Správný sběratel si je ale nakonec stejně všechny koupí a pak proklíná jak sebe, tak vydavatele.

+ systém poddaných
+ dlouhé hry na velké mapě
+ velmi propracovaná diplomacie

- ohromné množství DLC

At the court of the newly founded German kingdom of Suckmahbutt:

"My king, my king, we have news!"

"What news you filthy peasant?"

"The Sarazens tremble before our great forces! Not long, and we will call Jerusalem ours once again!"

"Ah, good news indeed. But I have too many vassals already, don't I?"

"Yes, M'lord. Shall I bring you the chronicles?"

"Yes, nameless lowborn scum, do that. Find me a distant cousin of my dynasty whom I can declare ruler of Jerusalem once the city falls and the war is won. Can't have it to rule such a distant kingdom myself."

"But there are other news, still. The Permian nobles have risen up and hold their banner for independence."

"Well, what do I care? Where's Perm even supposed to be?"

"Why, it's a tribal duchy south of Siberia."

"Why do you tell me of the rebellion then? They're too far away for me to attack them anyway."

"Why would you wish to attack your own lands, my king?"

"MY LANDS?" The king starts laughing "How is this snowy outback tribal lectern of a duchy MY LAND?"

"Well, remember the cousin your grand grandfather married off to a uyghur warlord to get a treaty out of him?"

"No."

"Me neither. But apparently their entire clan went extinct after some crazy viking coastal conquest went down and... well, I dont know the details either. But it appears you happened to inherit those lands, and now they're ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off to be ruled by a German infidel."

"This is madness."

"Madness? No. THIS IS... nevermind actually. But we have it 1241, and you're related to pretty much every royal in Europe, so this kind of stuff happens, I suppose."

"What happens if I just ignore the rebels?"

"They'll win the war, you'll lose prestige and the big blue blob formerly known as France will probably take the chance to invade us."

"Well, we can't have this. Make peace with the Saracens. We go to war in... what was it called?"

"Perm, M'lord. Will you lead the troops yourself?"

"No, I have to outlive my firstborn son, after all. Put him in charge, if we're lucky this lunatic imbecile glutton dies in battle and his brother inherits."

"So it will happen, M'lord."

10/10 would marry uyghur infidels again

Do I recommend this game?
Yes, truly I do. Its an awesome game. It develops every single aspect of a strategy game set in the past that are left out of other games. You can have families, friends, allies, non-aggression pacts. You can imprison, execute and banish annoying vassals, you can marry yourself with the daughter of the King of England, and through the descendants of that union get a claim on his lands. The game is varied, as you an set your game in various time periods across history with hundreds of different factions. You can be a Mongolian Khan or a Holy Roman Emperor just as much as you can be a count in Iceland with no wealth, armies or power. In most strategy games, who YOU in an empire is mostly irrelevant. In the CIV series you're simply a great leader of your nation that rules it forever. Or in the Total war series, you can have a defined character bu everything about him is mostly out of your control or irrelevant. in CK2, all the focus is on your family, as it should be. Your daughters can be married to secure alliances or become great rulers in their own right. Your sons can lead your armies, and can be giving titles you win through war. Some of your sons will love you, others will only try to seize power for themselves. Every single character as a personality, related to their trait that ACTUALLY MATTERS. Be a jerk, become a tyrant and people will hate you, resent you and might even try to murder you This world feels organic and you truly feel a part of it. For all of those reasons, I recommend this game

However

It cant be denied that this game unfortunately has TONS of issues that affect game play. The kind of which will make you want to scream at your screen at how stupid what just happened was. Complete nobodies who actually like you will have you murdered for no reason or will get themselves 20000 men armies out of nowhere to attack you even tough they don't have a penny on them or apparent claims on your lands.

The AI can be incredibly stupid! They cant ever hold on to a king title without being crushed by continuous groups of rebellious vassals. After a century, ever single important christian kingdom will have an elective system of law. Why? Because its what theirs vassals want and the AI cant handle rebellions. You want to battle certain foreign dynasties across history? Too bad, the AI is also incompetent at keeping themselves alive for any long periods. Most great houses in say, 1066 will have disappeared in a bout a century which COULD be considered historically accurate but at the same time it makes you feel like you're playing this game alone with no actual competition. The AI for the pope can be brain dead. Calling crusades against Kingdoms in India, forcing crusaders to cross the Persian desert to reach their target!

The DLC in this game is horrendous. Its DLC whoring that's EA worthy. You have to pay for portraits and songs in the game!!! PURE AESTHETICS STUFF THAT DOESNT CHANGE GAME PLAY. Are you sick of hearing the same 2 god damn songs in repeat? Pay money.
The worst about those DLC is what they offer. Without paying extra, you cant play pagans, you cant play Indians, you cant play muslims and you cant play republics. Thats right, more than half of the starting areas are impossible for the player to play unless they pay extra. Others are simply broken and as such are complete rip offs AND THANK GOD I never bought some of them!! They allow you for 5.49 $ to customize your ruler on regular mode BUT not on Ironman mode. But, thats something you could ALREADY DO THROUGH THE CONSOLE. Its vastly useless! The Way of life DLC makes every single male in your kingdom horny dogs that go after your wife, your heirs wife etc... which means, in a game about dynasties ruling across history, your son might just be the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ son of some random count who, thanks to the seduction focus, repeatedly slept with your wife 35 times right under your nose. The ONLY way to make sure your wives don't end up sleeping with every single man in the Kingdom is to pick a chaste one (trait that I rarely see and that they often end up losing) or a lesbian. Apparently, according to paradox, all women were ♥♥♥♥♥s in these times! Seeing how they refuse to truly fix this, thats the only conclusion I can arrive to. They tried to with a new "reject seduction attempts" system but since theres always a few master seducers running around it doesn't stop anyone.
The conclave DLC makes the game way harder and sooo much less fun. The Republic DLC forces you to use seniority succession and nothing else! Always playing 75 years old? isnt that fun???
The Sword of Islam dlc should've been in the base game, same for the old gods. There's no excuses to leave so many factions unplayable even at an 1066 start.

Theres also new updates. Lots of complaints about the new update regarding coalitions that can make pagans, muslims and christians band together against you because you took a duchy through a religious war. They NEVER make coalitions USEFUL agaisnt the AI, this feature is SOLELY used to stop the player from expanding, forcing you to wait 30 f*cking years for infamy to go off unless youre willing to fight 8 nations at the same time. Shattered retreats make your enemies armies magically undestroyable while they basicly have safe conduit back to their territories. Which means, wars now drag for SO FREAKING longer than they need to because you can't kill their armies! You cant pursue them either because you will never have enough supplies and risk losing men needlessly. Sometimes, your own armies will retreat at the WORST POSSIBLE PLACES. When you raid a coast with boats and your raiders gets defeated, they sometimes retreat further in the AIs territory even tough their boats is RIGHT THERE. Theres as of date NO OPTION to turn those off. You dont like them? too bad. You have to use mods on the workshop and disable ironman mode to be able to play without them

In short?? This game offers SO much and at the same time sucks the fun out of the game with questionable design decisions, horrible dlc, and annoying AI. Is the game fun? Yes. Of course it is. But after several hours, you realize all the shortcoming of this game and you're bound to be annoyed by them.
Btw, buy this game on a sale, that game is often on sale at 40% or 30% off (cant remember the percentage) Yet every other day its over 200$ to acquire the "full experience". Just wait a little while and get it on sale

I've spend 600+ hours in this game, and I still cannot "beat" it, or truly ever understand it. I still routinely start in Ireland and attempt to conquer everything. I have all the DLC and I have tried in other locations, but there are just so many things left to do. I cannot stress this enough, BUY THE GAME.

Great game, but Paradox needs to be punished for adding new expansion more quickly than correcting the bugs and flaws they create by doing so.

So it's a NO review, until they change policies.

I like this game. I really do. It is well crafted, has phenomenal replayability, and is constantly being updated. The problem? The sheer greed and avarice of its creators. To gain access to the full gamut of features available to players of this game, you'll have to spend upwards of $200. Most of the "expansions" for this game are in the form of $15 DLC packs that add as much content as a minor patch for similar games such as the Total War series or even Civilization.

Long story short, don't buy this game unless you are willing to pay nearly $300 for the full experience.

This game is awesome. Start out as a little guy in Ireland and become the Emperor of the British Isles, and then lose it all in a generation and you're a count again. Except this time you're a count somewhere in Germany because on a previous character you married some German count's daughter, and he had a feud with someone who murdered all of his sons and you ended up inheriting it. Well now I guess you're in Germany so you start all over again. You fabricate some claims, and invite some claimants and land them, allowing you to take land for them that will be added to your overall realm. Eventually you're big enough and you've bribed enough people that you manage to get yourself elected Holy Roman Empire. Now the might of the Reich is going to go down upon that upstart Duke who thought he could overthrow you as Emperor of Britain.

Every game can be this interesting. Try it.

The CKII Experience:
1. Create an awesome looking character with so-so traits.
2. Marry a princess from some far-flung kingdom.
3. Sire some children (and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s)
4. Use your so-so council to spread your influence over nearby lands.
5. Fabricate some claims, infuriate some nobles, and rise from a count to a duke.
6. Your character becomes depressed, stressed, and possesed.
7. You die in a Viking raid from some distant pagan chiefdom.
8. Your heir, despite your efforts, becomes a tyrant.
9. His councilors contstantly join plots to kill him and eventually his siblings rise up and, with the help of the freaking Holy Roman Empire, revoke your titles, imprison and execute you.

You know, I feel like ,compared to some of the great players (e.g. those mad tings' with 2000+ hours invested into the game) I really haven't experienced that much. In fact, I haven't even managed to run through a full game yet, that is both from the DLC-given 769 Charlemagne starting date and the vanilla 1066 date, and I like to consider myself a competent player - atleast I would hope so by this point... BUT, by my sweet black baby jesus' grace, it was when all of this hit me that I decided to write this review.

That is ♥♥♥♥ing amazing.

400+ hours of gameplay, nearing 500, and I still haven't managed to finish a game?

CK2 is the ultimate strategy out there. It doesn't recquire particularly acute battle-planning however, that is all done by a simple combat simulator and AI Martial Ability, no. This sort of strategy is that of court intrigue, seducing the Queen of Lombardy and marrying her so your heir becomes King of Italy whilst also coming from a family of barbaric Norse pagans?

What? The predominantly Catholic Italians don't like the idea of having a Pagan King and try revolt against you? Beat them down then, that's what your well groomed retinues are for.

But still your Council might find themselves growning a tad bit agitated with your ritual sacrifice of their fellow Christians and might attempt to, instead of overthrowing you competely, limit your power with diplomacy and the use of a strange concept. Democracy. Well, ♥♥♥♥ them, send your spymaster with his seditious intent to capture or kill them.

All this in the meagre period of twenty years.

Who knows what other trials, tribulations and resounding triumphs, await you upon your purchase of this game?
Well to answer that. No-one. Because the possibilities are, literally, absolutely infinite.

Oh and I also suggest shelling out, legit, everything in your wallet on the main DLCs, which are everything exluding Aztec Invasion.

Possibly the best game ever? I have sunk a LOT of time into paradox games in my time, but this is by far my favorite. Control a man and then a dynasty, enjoy intrigue and politics and strategic marriages. Build your empire and shape your world. Start as a count and work your way up to emperor, reunite the Roman empire, or even inherit Byzantium as the HRE. the amount of things that I have done and can do in this game astounds me, as does every new paradox game. 100/1/00

Incredibly addictive. The depth and the range of options are very impressive. Sometimes it feels a bit odd with the strict rules of family management (like, why can't I as an Emperor persuade my lackwit elder son that he's better off in a monastery than ruling; had to excommunicate him and then reconciled and sent him to monastery nevertheless).
Allows some really strange manipulations with history. I rebuilt the Roman Empire through heroic attempts of three consecutive female Empresses and finally a couple of decent male rulers. And that's a pretty tame story if you compare to what people are posting here and elsewhere.
Absolutely worth playing a lot.

I was the King of Italy and my good friend was a duke under me. By the end of our session my friend had his dukedom stolen by a foreign host, he died a billion times, we reclaimed his dukedom, but I then had him assassinated so my family inherited the land.

10/10 Yes @Brokenbranch I killed you to take your land.

A great game for roleplaying a dynasty in the middle ages. In this game you don't play as a country, but you play as the dynasty leading the country.
It is my most played game of all time and has given me hundreds of hours of fun
