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!

“It's indie roots show in the production values but it also has heart and provides both depth of gameplay and challenge I've not seen in more commercial products in ages. Eador: Genesis is both charming and rock hard with a fiendishly sharp sense of humor.”

Strongly advise against this game unless you are a diehard strategy fanatic. It has an extremely steep learning curve and is completely unforgiving. The tutorial is rediculously long and yet teaches you very little of the game's actual mechanics.

If you ever thought to yourself: "I want to play Heroes of Might and Magic, but I want to explore the whole game, as if I played it the first time." Look no further!
Eador is basically Heroes with unlimited content! It even got a (for the game type) decent narrative.
Give it a try, you won't regret it!

Let's get this out of the way... this game looks like something you'd
pull out of a box in 1990 and go "This looks like ****, my Amiga 500
can do sooo much better!".

That was it for the negative points.
Now for them positives...

All of them, no really, this is a proper "game", not a technical showcase
or a way to kill 30 minutes. There is substance, hidden depths, and
you're going to miss important stuff during the day up to the moment
when some kind of family intervention pulls you out of it, because you
are going to experience proper "another turn" vibes.

Don't let the graphics and the UI put you off, trust me. Give yourself
half an hour to get past the initial feelings and you'll enjoy Eador: Genesis,
whether you're playing it full screen like I do or in a small window.
If you REALLY hate the way it looks… I don't know, put on some
3D glasses and pretend you're hallucinating, but play this game.

The game is great, probably one of the most fun games I've ever played. But I'm only writing this review to note something very important: THIS GAME DOES NOT HAVE WINDOWS 10 SUPPORT. And it runs very badly on Windows 8 and possibly 7. Requiring you to slow down your computer in the settings or refusing to go fullscreen.

The hours I have in it were all spent in a very small windowed screen on Windows 7, reducing the quality of gameplay, obviously. Once I upgraded it refused to run at all.

If you are looking to still play it however (Which you should, it's a great game.) I highly recommend Eador: Master of the Broken World, which is a 3d remake and offers the exact same experience, except it actually works.

So at first is was like "Oh god no, please not another crappy nostalgia-like hexagonal tactical game" but i decided to give it a try.

And i enjoyed it !

I played for hours, gradualy leveling my character and my army, discovering and conquering every piece of land i could, getting great gear and storing a crap load of money.

And then i finished the map...

And i had to start everything over on another one.

Even though the reason why i have ot do this is explianed in the lore, it's still f*ing annyong to have the feeling i've waisted hours of my life making a perfect realm for nothing.

If at least there was some achievements to earn, or if you could get just a fraction of what you got in the new map, that would be awesome.

But no. There is nothing, and you just start over, listening at the same music again and again, doing the same things again and again, with crappy graphics and somehow laggy game.

The idea was great, even i who don't like that king of game enjoyed playing the first map. But forget about the rest.

Not as pretty and missing a few features from Masters of a Broken World, but much more stable and less of a hardware hog.
In short, a really good game if you like turn based strategy with heroes.

I actually played the sequel before trying this game. I really wanted to like it, but it ended up being a game with great ideas and poor execution. This seems like a simplified version of that, which is mostly good, but still not a much better experience. It is just too difficult to be satisfying for me, but I can see the appeal for some.

Eador: Genesis hätte eigetnlich ein episches Spiel sein können, trotz der angestaubten Grafik. Es gibt bei diesem Rundenstrategiespiel zahlreiche Einheiten und einen gewaltigen Tech-Tree. Auch die Story ist spannend und mysteriös gestaltet und die NPC-Interaktion ist ziemlich umfangreich (jeder hat eine Einstellung gegenüber dem Spieler und liefert Informationen über alle anderen NPCs und zur Story).

Das Problem sind einige Grundlegende Mängel im Design. Zum Einen ist es aufgrund von exessivem Mikromanagement und stark repitivem Spielprinzip unsäglich zeitaufwendig und Fehler werden kaum vergeben, denn Savegames fehlen (es gibt wie bei einem Rogue-like nur ein einziges Autosave). Man kann zwar (mit Punktabzug) einen Zug zurücknehmen, aber viel hilft das auch nicht. Ich hatte es vor Jahren schon mal "mitten drin" aufgegeben, nun aber mal einen weiteren Anlauf begonnen, diesmal gleich unter Einsatz massiver Cheats, da mich die Story interessiert hat. Geschafft habe ich es trotzdem nicht, da ich vorher wegen möglicher Spoiler nicht ins Forum gucken wollte und so auf ein unsichtbares Zuglimit aufgelaufen bin und feststellen musste, dass die Hinweise der NPCs völlig irreführend waren und das Spiel in der vor mir angestrebten "guten" Weise so gar nicht zu gewinnen war. Ja, Pech. Gut dass ich dank Cheats diesmal nur Tage statt Wochen und Monate verbraten habe.

Um das mal kurz zu verdeutlichen. Das Spiel findet auf zwei Ebenen statt, einer Astral-Ebene, wo man ähnlich wie bei einer Weltkarte mit NPCs interagieren kann und neue Gebiete zum Erobern auswählt und dann gibt es noch das eigentliche Gefecht auf einer anscheinend zufällig generierten Karte. Hier startet man allerdings jedesmal bei Null. Die Burg muss ausgebaut werden, damit dort überhaupt Truppen rekurtiert weden können und Helden müssen rekrutiert werden, die diese Truppen anführen. Keine Truppe kann sich ohne Held bewegen. Die Helden selbst können zunächst nur wenige einfache Einheiten mitnehmen, sie müssen ausgerüstet werden, was nur durch das Besiegen von Gegnern geht und werden so nur langsam stärker, da bei zu starken Feinden, welche Ausrüstung und XP hätten, die Vernichtung droht.

Die Burg hat um die 100 freispielbare Aufrüstungen, die man dort einbauen kann. Viele setzen andere voraus und man kann pro Zug nur eine bauen, vorausegesetzt man hat überhaupt die Ressourcen. Automatisierung - Fehlanzeige. So vergehen dutzende Züge bis man überhaupt aus dem Startfeld bzw. den unmittelbar angrenzenden herauskommt. In jedem Feld kann man zudem "erkunden". Damit werden nach dem Zufallsprinzip weitere Örtlichkeiten entdeckt, die Boni geben, Items beinhalten und meistens von Monstern besetzt sind, die oft noch viel zu stark sind. Im Laufe so einer Partie wird man 2-4 Helden "hochziehen", was allerdings völlig für die Katz ist, denn wenn die Karte - je nach Größe - nach mehreren Stunden gewonnen ist, verflüchtigt sich das alles wieder. Sogar die Heimatwelt, die hin und wieder von Bösewichten angegriffen wird, muss jedes mal wieder komplett von Null erschlossen werden, d.h. Helden leveln und aufrüsten, Infrastruktur aufbauen, die Burg ausbauen. Jedes eroberte Feld (=Provinz) erhöht außerdem die Chance auf ein zufälliges Event. Bei dutzenden von besetzten Provinzen bedeutet das, dass gerne auch mal 5-6 Events pro Runde aufpoppen, die man nacher schon am Bild und den ersten Sätzen der Beschreibung erkennt und routinemäßig abarbeitet.

Nun gibt es aber auch Events, und Örtlichkeiten, die für die Story kritisch sind. Verpasst man diese oder nutzt sie nicht richtig, bleiben Lösungsmöglichkeiten der Kampagne insgesamt versperrt. Dies auch noch, ohne das so ohne weiteres ersichtlich ist. Eines Tages poppt dann einfach eine Meldung auf, dass die Armee des Chaos nun da wäre und - nicht etwa das nun ein epischer Kampf folgt - nein, man wird darüber informiert, das man verloren hat und alles umsonst war.

Als Bösewicht hat man es etwas leichter, man kann nach beblieben dunkle Magie einsetzen, seine Untertanen bis auf's Blut auspressen und vernichtet einfach jeden NPC der einem auf der Astralkarte über den Weg läuft. (Wobei es auch als Bösewicht eigentlich mehrere Siegvarianten gäbe.) So hat man wenigstens nach ca. 50x Helden und Burg von Null aufbauen und Karte erobern, nach ca. 2-4 Wochen Dauerzocken wenigstens die Kampagne erfolgreich absolviert.

Very difficult TBS game, even on Beginner. Can be very frustrating till you learn the systems but people willing to plow through and figure it out will be rewarded with a very fun (and cheap) time sink. Despite losing my first two campaign attempts I stuck with it, got an idea for what was going on and suddenly lost 40 hours of the first week. Highly recommended for TBS fans and people who enjoy a challenge.

Alright, what's the deal with this game? It's got crappy graphics and looks like it's from 1998!

Let's ignore those facts for a moment. Suspend your disbelief, if you will. What's going on beneath the surface with the game mechanics?

As of this review writing, I've got 305 hours spent on this game (I'm a bit ashamed of that). So, there's something being done right here. It certainly scratches a lot of my itches and gives me what I'm looking for.

In terms of strategy, there are multiple layers of complexity. You're first introduced to the game in a small starting scenario which introduces the game mechanics to you. Most of the time, you are moving your hero armies around on the campaign map. On occassion, your hero will get into a tactical battle against monsters or other heros. This takes place on a hexagonal grid system and each side takes turns moving all of their creatures.

The battles are quite tactical. Your creatures come in 4 different tiers of strength. Each unit comes with certain strengths and weaknesses, and abilities. For example, the thief has a dagger strike which poisons his foes and doesn't let them counter attack. However, the thief doesn't have a lot of HP or armor, so they can easily be killed. Archers can't shoot at adjacent enemies, so they have to move away. Sometimes, your archers can only move away and can't act, so adjacent units can keep following them and killing the archers. So, you certainly want to protect the archers with blocking melee units. The game also has a pretty interesting list of battle spells. If you can't get behind a melee wall to the squishy archers, you could always resurrect one of the dead corpses as a zombie which can do the job. Just as well, the enemy could do that to you! So, to prevent that, you want to move your creatures on top of corpses to prevent their reanimation. That could also cause you to move onto a strategically disadvantageous position. Every army has a hero leading it, so the heros also directly participate in the battles. Heros can become very, very powerful as they level up. I find that an appropriately maxed warrior can pretty much solo every fight, but that strategy won't work forever.

Your kingdom consists of your capitol and any conquered provinces. Each province yields a little bit of mana and/or gold per turn. This mana and gold is used for spells and recruiting units or constructing buildings. Some provinces will have strategic resources (such as logs) which will reduce the building costs of a building within your capitol. Each province can be improved to provide more resources. It seems that every turn, there are also a bunch of random events which happen within your kingdom. You have to read each event story and navigate a dialogue tree to respond to the event in some way. Each dialogue choice has a variable chance that it creates a favorable result or a negative result. The game events work on a sort of "karma" system, where choosing the "evil" choices results in negative karma but a short term gain, and choosing the "good" choice results in positive karma but generally incurs a cost. Over time, if your karma becomes really good, your kingdom will be flooded with positive events. If your karma becomes bad, you get flooded with bad events which get progressively more expensive.

Meanwhile, you also also contending against one or more AI players who usually play with a slight advantage (cheaters!). You have to play particularly well in order to beat the AI.

The game is also a bit unforgiving. You can't really just start a level, save at turn 15, play to turn 25, and then reload turn 15 if things go bad. The save game system only allows you to go back one turn, and if you reload, it also penalizes you by subtracting from your final score. You can restart an entire scenario from the beginning, but that too has a campaign cost (in terms of astral energy). So, you don't want to screw around and experiment. In some scenarios, an enemy wizard will directly attack your home world and you have to fend them off. If you lose, that's it. Game over. You lose. Roll credits. No reloading and trying again.

In the campaign mode, you select which "shards" you want to conquer. Each shard unlocks two or more buildings for your capitol for each subsequent scenario. Some shards are extremely difficult to conquer if you don't have sufficient tech. So, you have to pick carefully which shards you want to conquer and in which order you want to conquer them based on the buildings they unlock.

This game is very fun, very interesting, and very complex. If you can look past the graphics, I highly recommend it for any strategy minded players. There is a newer version of this game out which pretty much is this exact game (in terms of mechanics) but overhauls the graphics and UI (ooh, pretty sparkles!).

There is only one significant downside to the game, and that is the drawback of its unforgiving save game system. I encountered a problem midway into one of my campaigns where my save game file got corrupted somehow. Since there wasn't any previous saved games, I lost hours of progress. I almost lost my entire campaign! I had to restart my shard scenario from the beginning.

Currently, I haven't been playing this game lately because I am stuck on a particularly difficult invasion. An enemy wizard decided to attack my homeworld and the AI difficulty is set very high. In the three times I've tried, I can't seem to beat him. I must fight him off, and if I lose, the game is completely over. I've given up for now, but maybe in a few months I'll try again.

My new favorite game. Built on the shoulders of games like Master of Magic, Heroes of M&M, Westnoth, Warlords, it takes the best elements of these games and puts them all in one place.

Warning: The game is super long and super challenging, I'll probably never finish it, but then that's not actually a problem ;)

This game is the video game version of crack.
It doesn't look that great and you wonder why people are doing it. You read the reviews, every one is saying how great it is, don't knock it 'till you try it they say. It's cheap and curiosity gets the better of you. You give it a try. Two weeks pass you have spent more time on it than you have complete major titles and you're still at the begining of the game. You find excuses to play, you keep saying 'just one more turn'. You start burning dinner, becoming later and later for work, missing appointments and you are seeing your family less and less.

Like me you have become an addict, living from shard to shard. Is there help for this? I don't know.

Quite frankly I don't want to know

I second every recommendation made on this game so far, with ONE addition :

This game, doesn't give you its full research tree until you are veeeeeeeery deep into it, unlike other similar games where you get some really powerful game-breaking units after, let us say, 10 hours of gaming ... with Eador it might take you 30 hours to see the first building that will create a tier 2 unit for your cities.

For me that is a definite plus as it keeps the playing time - and the mystery of the game - much much longer and much more interesting since the benefits of the shards which you have to choose from in each of the "pick a shard to conquer" turns is random as well.

Full price is WORTH it ... but if you get it on a discount RUN to buy it as if it was iPhone 10 and you were the only person that knew it was coming out :p

I've put loads of money to obtain PC with high-end Radeon just to get bored with modern games and spend my time playing this gem. This definietly is not a game for everyone, people who don't remember and love 90's gaming might not like these graphics and gameplay. But if you do, surely should you try it. Mix HoMM with Age of Wonders, some Civilization and add bonus content and it it Eador: Genesis. Game is very complex and, depending of your skills and terrain available, you might choose plenty of different approaches. Battles seem simplified, but when you dig into them, you discover more and more relevant factors, that can, literally, transform heavy defeat into a glorious victory. I'd write more, but have to play. Just one more turn. Or maybe, a hundred ;)

A true hidden gem. If you like old school turn-based strategies you should try this one, it's ridiculously complex and ridiculously hard. The amount of content is really staggering, there is more than 200 buildings in your stronghold and I'm still getting new random events and discovering new things after 100+ hours of play. If I have one complaint it's that the game does poor job at explaining anything else than the very basics and the tutorial barely scratches the surface of the real gameplay. Which is not necessarily all bad, if you don't mind mastering the game the hard way and learning from your mistakes.

I would very much recommend this game, though if you already have "Master's of a Broken World" or vise versa then this is essentially the same game (before it got the fancy graphics). This game is hard, so far as there is almost no documentation that can help you understand every singe battle/challenge/random event. About the only thing you can do is dive in, play, lose, and do it all over again (I re-ran the tutorial about 3 times). But once you do learn, and you conquer your first shard, well I for one was hooked.
This is not a game that you can ever just bide your time with, building up enough of an army, and a powerful enough hero. Yes these are the things you must have to win, but the computer opponents are doing exactly the same things, and in many cases, they are much more aggressive. You can find yourself surrounded, fighting to keep the enemy out of your strongholds, when only rounds earlier you thought you had the game well in hand. Yes it is somewhat repetative (part of the game getting easier is that you eventually start to know what pattern or solution to a given "random" event is best), and there are times that it will feel unfair, but trust me. When you bull rush an enemy strong hold, kill off 2 of his heroes, siege his castle, then finally banish him, all before HE was able to break away, then you too will know how much fun this game can be!
