This is an improvements update with the majority of things suggested and/or pointed out by the community.

Invasion direction now correctly represents relative locations of your and attacker's cities.



The radius around invader troops where you can't build anything has been slightly increased.

Amount of iron and coal on the tutorial map has been increased.

Chickens, birds and other animals are a bit quieter.

A new beautiful poster:



I've been thinking about making Hearthlands merchandise shop with posters like this one and other stuff. What do you think: good idea/bad idea? What's the best solution for an online shop? What would you like to see there?

Thank you for your support!

What's new in 1.1.1

As you may have noticed Hearthlands was released from EA a couple of days ago thus (now officially) bringing this 3 year journey to conclusion. This is how you make games god dammit, no Kickstarter, no nothing:) I don't recommend trying this at home.

As I've said before, this is not the end though:) Also, there's probably gonna be a long post soon-ish, once I finish writing it (need more time!).


This is a quick update focused on either preventing rare launch issues or telling you what's wrong and how to fix it.

Most problems so far have been related to outdated or wrong graphics card drivers.

If you're still having issues, please contact me at info@hearthlands.com. Make sure you include log.txt file from the game folder and your system specs.

The game now requires C++ Redistributable Package (on Windows), which should be installed automatically by Steam (99.9% of you already have it).

I also added 'Keep Playing' button in campaign missions. Thank you for the suggestion!



Hearthlands soundtrack is now available in higher quality on SoundCloud:

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.
