Eador is a universe made of countless shards of land drifting in the Great Nothing. Each of the shards is a little world unto itself, with geography and denizens of its own. The power over the shards is bitterly contested by Masters, the immortal beings mortals believe to be gods.

Gremlins, Inc. & Eador



In 2009, Alexey Bokulev designed and developed a turn-based strategy Eador. Genesis. That game went on to score really well with the players. In 2013, we released a 3D remake of the game under the title of Eador: Masters of the Broken World that successfully sold over 200.000 copies worldwide.

To celebrate the release of Alexey Bokulev's latest game Gremlins, Inc. that comes out this week and the connection between the world of Eador titles and the world of Gremlins, Inc., on March 11 we issue special Steam coupons to all the owners of Eador. Genesis and Eador: Masters of the Broken World, entitling them to a one-time discount on Gremlins, Inc. in the period from March 11 – March 31 (if you own one of these games, you will see the coupon in your Steam inventory).

Dear guests from Eador: welcome to Zarr's world, the world of gremlins!

I recommend it.

Great game, but quickly becomes very tedious, each shard (map) takes a long time to complete, and win or lose you'll have to start from scratch on every new shard.

I purchased this game because it is advertised as supporting Linux. After installing in several machines and configurations, I always get the error "missing executable". Then I installed it via WINE / PlayOnLinux, tried different video settings, but the video is always broken. I have not tried it on Windows, but my vote is negative because developers should not advertise supporting a platform when clearly they don't . You can check in the forums, all Linux users are getting the error "missing executable", and it has not been fixed for several months now.

Here's the pros
-engaging story
-numerous events
-different playstyles
-strong emphasis on your choices
-sometimes there's just a moral grey area
-Lots of different units

Here's the cons
-The AI cheats like crazy, they have no need for money and no restrictions on unut tiers. Their heroes level stupidly fast at the start of each shard and they conquer a quarter of the shard in the time it takes you to set up an economy to support your army. Usually you can support 2 heroes with strong armies, the AI will always go for all four heroes and as many units as possible.
-some Masters just don't line up with their supposed goals. One will claim the hate necromancy yet use the walking dead as guards.
-Some Masters just hate you for no reason.
-You restart constantly on each shard, unless you spend a lot of "god points" to bring stuff in.

All in all it stupidly challenging at the start but gets easier as you gain more units and upgrades

A great game, but full of bugs, at least if running on Wins XP. As I count Heroes of M and M III for the best turn based strategy game, I dare say Eador can compete with this title. Fans of strategy games should really at least try it.

Bought this game ages ago (I believe the price tag was a bit higher). It probably wasn't worth it then, but it is now for sure. They've really worked the kinks out and added a couple things that were desperately needed. Hopefully they'll take what they've learned from their past two games and create a third game that really knocks it out of the park.

Say what you will, but at least there's an assload of content. You can play for a hundred hours and not finish the main campaign. The story is good, your choices matter, all in all I think it's a good game.
