Reviews

“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.”

About the Game

Will you answer the call?

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.

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 ;)

A delightful old school mix of turn based stratagy and RPG.
The learning curve is steep but if the player just takes their time to understand how things work they will be rightfully rewarded.
An awesome gem of a game.
Excellent amount of content for the money spent.

What do you get when you take Heroes of might and Magic/ Kings Bounty combat and put it to use in a hex based medieval map reminicent of Civilisation 5, add it a bunch of dialogue stuff, mix the spices of fantasy. spin the mixture and boil it in a witchs pot with dragons fire and you basically get Eador Genesis. Reminds me abit of King Arthur except with the Heroes of Might and Magic hex combat.

Its definitelly a Grand Strategy game that can go for quite along while, You are a DemiGod striving for the control of a shard, you hire heroes that you have do heroic stuff from fighting spiders and dragons. There are plenty of dialogue and choices that give morality. Will eat time really easily once you get in the paces of using rituals and managing heroes.

Youve always got choices within your castle and you have alot of tech trees to chose. You can train evil/neutral/good units which all have differing stats and usefulness. You can easily have a good necromancer or an evil paladin.

Bloody inquisition though. You either let your people get tortured witch trials style or you eternally get damned as a evil by the inquisition and will constantly attempt to ravage your lands. Still there are always more dialogue and such like a Pheonix lady that got cursed by her husband but yeah.

Graphics are dated but mechanics carry the game really well and its enjoyable :D

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!
