Acerca de este juego

KNIGHTS and MERCHANTS recreates the era of the Middle Ages. Apart from the purely fictitious geography of our world, all game elements and scenes are based on the Anglo-Saxon period, 1200 A.D. And we haven't used imaginary elements like fabled creatures, either. The player takes on the role of an ordinary captain in the Palace Guard. A conspiracy against the king catapults the captain into a situation where he finds himself responsible for the defence of the last royal province. This is all that remains of the shattered kingdom, which has been split into numerous small principalities and fiefdoms. And now even the king himself, ensconced in his capital, is threatened by enemy armies. This is the starting point of your Middle Ages adventure. Now you must win back all those provinces which once belonged to your king.

THE SHATTERED KINGDOM:

After many battles, a former kingdom has been divided into many small principalities and earldoms. The kingís troops were pushed back into one last royal province, and the rulers of the other provinces waged terrible, destructive wars against one another. The whole land fell into a state of chaos and now the former royal capital itself is under
siege by the armies of the rebel lords. You belong to the last remaining group of loyal kingís men, and have been commanded to go to the king in view of the imminent
attack.

THE PEASANTS REBELLION:

Build a prosperous settlement with a complete economy. Arm your troops and meet the enemy on the battle field! Master these tasks and the King’s subjects will be able to live in peace and freedom again.

  • Middle ages simulation and Real-time strategy

Knights and Merchants es un juego de administración y gestión económica medieval, y de estrategia a tiempo real.

Básicamente, te conviertes en el administrador de una villa. Debes impartir órdenes a los vasallos para construir edificios y caminos, recoger ciertos recursos, manufacturar productos, y entrenar tropas.

¡Pero no es el típico juego de estrategia! Lo novedoso de este juego radica en la diversidad de profesiones y recursos.
Por ejemplo:

Starcraft tiene dos recursos: minerales y gas. Knights and Merchants tiene múltiples recursos: pescado, pan, vino, longanizas, madera, tablas, piedra, mineral de hierro, lingotes de hierro, mineral de oro, monedas de oro, carbón, pieles, cuero, harina, trigo, cerdos, caballos, espadas de madera, espadas de hierro, escudos de madera, escudos de hierro, armaduras de cuero, armaduras de hierro, lanzas de madera, lanzas de hierro, arcos y ballestas.

Age of empires tiene un tipo de aldeano. Knights and Merchants tiene pescadores, panaderos, vivicultores, carniceros, leñadores, artesanos, canteros, mineros, fundidores, curtidores, molineros, campesinos, ganaderos, herreros, canteros, ayudantes y reclutas.

¡Además, cada uno de tus vasallos debe ser alimentado!

El juego es complejo, pero no resulta estresante ni abrumador pues todos los comandos y acciones son totalmente intuitivos.

El juego podría entenderse, cuenta con "dos mundos":

El primer mundo corresponde a la admnistración de la villa. Tendrás que asegurarte de que la villa funcione adecuadamente, que tu panadero tenga suficiente harina, que tu molinero tenga suficiente trigo, y que tu campesino tenga suficiente campo para segar el trigo. Tendrás que preocuparte de que tus calles sean suficientemente anchas para que tus aldeanos las recorran sin causar embotellamientos. Deberás velar para que se produzca el suficiente alimento para alimentar tanto a tus tropas como a tus súbditos.

El segundo mundo corresponde a las tropas y batallas. Si logras administrar adecuadamente tu villa, podrás entrenar suficientes reclutas y producir suficientes armaduras para tener a tu ejército. Contarás además con una gran cantidad de unidades diferentes, agrupados en 5 tipos: soldados de infantería, lanceros, infantería de tiro, caballería y armas de asedio.

¿Un ejemplo esclarecedor?
Si quieres entrenar un caballero, deberás: proveer un recluta y un caballo, una armadura de hierro, una espada de hierro, y un escudo de hierro. Y a la vez, para crear una espada de hierro deberás proveer un lingote de hierro y carbón para que tu herrero produzca el arma. Y a la vez, para crear un lingote de hierro, deberás proveer mineral de hierro y carbón para que tu fundidor haga el lingote (etc.)

Suena complejo, pero el nivel de satisfacción que produce ver tu economía a toda máquina, tus aldeanos contentos y bien alimentados, la industria produciendo toneladas de armas y un ejército vigoroso: no tiene precio.

Punto negativo: el juego que descargues de Steam será casi injugable. Deberás descargar un parche llamado "KAM remake".

¡Que lo disfrutes!

Buen juego para pasar el rato, lo recomiendo para la gente que le guste los juegos clasicos y medievales (Muy interesante).
Hace falta un poco de paciencia para jugarlo, ya que a diferencia de otros juegos de estrategia, las construcciones y la recoleccion y produccion de materia depende de tus trabajadores (Lo cual lo hace mas lento si estan ocupados).
Recomendado 7,5/10.
PD: Me ha crasheado una vez el juego, aun no se la razon.

This game brings back such memories.. Ah..
Anyway, nostalgia trip over, here's my views on this game.

Pro's and benefits:
This game has an indepth resource management system. Seriously, it's way better than anything to date. Your army can drain your economy rapidly depending on how big it is, so fielding smaller armies can be mutually better, if it may take longer to defeat your enemy.
Strategy is actually required for this game. No really, it's not a case of throwing a large army of 50 spear holders against a small force of 10 swordsmen with some archers behind, because that'll just get you murdered and that's a whole bunch of gold and resources gone. It's better to have small squads of 6, 9 and 12 with occasional 16 squads appearing now and then.
The nostalgic feel of this game is incredible! This game was made a good 10 years ago at the very least, maybe even earlier. Because it was made earlier and during the time that game developers actually had the balls to step outside the box and try something now, it created this game as well as many others.

The Cons/painful stuff:
Crash crash crash landings. This game SUCKS with the amount of crashes you can get. Seriously, there's an amazing amount of things you can do, and half of them will make you crash to desktop faster than the speed of light. (Note: this can be remedied via downloading the remake version on modDB. No free game for you though, you have to own the game to get access to the remake. Nice little touch of coding on the dev's part)
Time. THIS TAKES FOREVER!!! No really, you can be there for a good few hours figuring out one single mission. It can get really frustrating and at times I need to quit and relax my mind before I blow a brain tumor.

Final score:
I give this game a 4/5.
I'm giving it this score because considering everything that's great about this game, the crashes and amount of time it takes, as well as the sheer amount of difficulty some missions can have will result in rages and you not touching the game for a full week. However considering everything else about the game, it's really fun to play.

Notice: With the remake edition, multiplayer is available as well as a few other options, not to mention the crashes are at a minimum and you can increase time to X10 so waiting on your ♥♥♥ no longer becomes such a dull practice. Use the remake version if you want a better game in general. (again, you must own the game before you can use anything in the remake, and even then the remake isn't complete even today, so expect a few issues)

It'a quite slow and hard to learn. But when you reached it, it's really fun.
