What's new in 1.1.3

Can you believe it?! It's been 3 years now since Hearthlands got greenlit on Steam and about 3.5 years since the development started in May 2014! Working on one big project for this long is hard, but there still are things I'd like to see in the game. I'd like to thank everybody who joined us in this journey and made this dream possible.

There's been a silent update with some changes to the Mac OS build, it seems to be working better now. Also, it comes bundled with JRE.

Russian language added! I used a fan translation by aNNiPAk, Nicodimus, LinXP and kathnox (thank you a lot!), added missing text and a bunch of editing. It still took much longer than I thought though, but it's finally here!



Items that aren't being accepted are now shown in darker font on the stockpile window.



Tribute values in mission 8 are fixed.

Extra spaces in Spanish translation are fixed.

Saturation option in Settings menu lets you change saturation of in-game objects and terrain (reload the game to apply).





Peaceful (mostly) victory! You can now build a Wonder, which takes a whole bunch of time and resources to complete, but if you manage to hold it for 10 years, you win the game. Neighboring cities become more aggressive while you're building it (unless they are set to Passive), so you need to make sure your defenses are up.




PS Is it just me or every image in every announcement except this one got removed? What the f?

Edit: Fixed!

Status update

We're alive and (mostly) well!

There's going to be another update soon, with some fixes, improvements and suggestions. Initially I planned two updates before the end of the year, but unfortunately, I got caught up in some personal stuff and wasn't able to be as productive as I wanted. Thanks everybody for your patience!

First of all, Russian translation is completed and will be included in the next update. It took a while and it is probably still a bit rough at places. Big thanks to the community for their help!



Another addition is a wonder-type building (it haven't got a name yet). It is a massive structure built in stages and it makes it possible to 'win' the game peacefully.



















Thank you for your support!

About This Game

Hearthlands is a medieval/fantasy city-building real time strategy game in which you take a role of a king in a procedurally generated world. You can not control your subjects directly; instead you focus on city-building, resource management, diplomacy, heroes, magic and other things a
typical king deals with on a daily basis.
The game is very flexible: you can build up a powerful realm and rule the lands with an iron grip, or establish a humble fishermen village. Or create a trading empire. Or found a small, but well-defended outpost or raider's camp. Or become a host of a wizard's manor.
All characters, from a hauler to a hero have their own minds and behavior patterns. Sometimes it is interesting just to watch people scurry about minding their own business.

Features:

  • Build a medieval city;
  • Play the game the way you like it: experiment with sandbox settings or play a campaign mode (ex. Polish localization);
  • Keep your people happy by providing them with necessary resources and services;
  • Gather resources, produce goods and build industries;
  • See reports and tune up your economy;
  • Build an army and protect your city from monsters and invasions;
  • Trade and conduct diplomacy with neighbor realms, or go to war with them;
  • Research technologies and cast spells;
  • Challenge yourself by going after one of the achievements.
