About the Game

A World to Build… or Destroy.

“A war is coming… a war between East and West - between Kingdoms and Empires, between man and Fallen. A future of blood and death, of chaos and destruction.” – the Oracle Ceresa

Design your sovereign with unique talents and weapons for the trials ahead. Learn powerful spells to enchant units, summon elementals, or destroy those who oppose you. Found cities and research technologies to expand your influence. Send your champions on quests to recover ancient artifacts, gain allies, or obtain the great wealth lost during the Cataclysm.

The land is not simply waiting to be claimed; it must be conquered. Darkling camps, ogre lairs and caves waiting to be explored dot the landscape. In remote corners of the world, tireless butchermen, fell demons and legendary locations are waiting to be found. Explore Varda, a pre-Cataclysm city defended by golems that have turned on the citizens and made the city into a prison. Defeat Sarog to claim the Temple of the Dragon and recruit Ashwake Dragons to your cause. Claim the Flooded Graveyard or the Pit of Sarpah to harness the powerful magical energy of those locations.

Key features:

  • Recruit Champions - Equip them with rare magical items that you create or discover. Customize your champion’s special abilities and traits as they gain levels.
  • Fight in tactical battles - Battle enemy armies or the wild creatures of the world. Command your armies directly and choose between the special attacks and spells your units have learned.
  • Design your units - Customize their armor and weapons. Equip units with mounts to quickly close on enemy units. Train them with specialized traits like Discipline and Ignore Pain.
  • Liberate or Enslave - Transform Elemental into a noble kingdom, or an empire where citizens are fuel for your spells. Build studies and workshops to make your citizens more productive, or gallows and sacrificial altars to keep your citizens motivated.
  • Explore Wildland Areas - Be cautious when entering these areas; they offer their own rewards and treasures, but you will need high-level champions, advanced armies and powerful spells to survive.
  • Build your own world - Use the included modding tools to create new improvements, locations, quests or factions. Design new spells in the Particle Cauldron and entire worlds with the Cartographer’s Table.

First, I'd like to have a "neutral" rating - this game is too good, for all the things it does well, to have a negative rec. But it has two serious conceptual flaws, in my opinion, that I want to bring to light.

First and most important, all the details you can keep an eye on make it slow like heck. If you play carefully, making sure that no unit is slacking, not rushing combat etc., there will be hours until you see who you're exactly opposed to. Even then, you're probably far from making anything but the most basic, generic units, available to anyone.

Secondly, since it is all about (very) long term planning, you'll probably do well to start gathering all kinds of resources early on. However there's quite a lot of different resources, so it will take a lot of work to capture all the mines, farms, lairs, and that includes ones that you have no idea if they will ever see any use.

In short - if you can't commit serious time to this game, there's just no sense trying it.

This game has an outstanding design. you can design race, hero and units and tailor a strategy around your own specificities.
the graphics are subpar but they are not the selling point of the title.
The execution however is not even worthy of a beta. mutiple freezes and crashes, unstable loadings, backstories that won't save, inneficient coloring, etc... the list is too long for a mere review. no matter how frustrating it is the game is still playable (thanks to it's auto-save feature and as long as you have enough time to endure the very long and numerous reload of the same session after each crash) and it's subtle design hints of what a great game it could have been if it had been finished. however it's not even an alpha and paying even one cent for such a crap is certainly what one could call a rip-off.

I might add that selling a DLC for something that does not even exist in the first place is lifting the concept of shamelessness to new heights.

Don't get this game. If you want a 4x Masters of Magic kinda game, get the "stand alone expansion" of this, Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes. It's the same game, upgraded, that actually gets updates.

Get Legendary Heroes, just a better version of this game, and it's half the price regularly for some strange reason on Gamersgate.com (steam key)

Fun strategy game with cool features for character and army customization. It can suck you in for hours of enjoyment and has good replayability. The downside is that this version of the game is rather buggy and has alot of issues. I havent had these issues with Legendary heroes though. Also while on that note. For the minor upgrade that Legandary Heroes is, it really doesn't justify it's price. This game is just as fun if not moreso for a fraction of the price. Just save often in case bugs occur.
