The game is sorta like The sims meets stronghold... i dunno.
You start by controlling a member of your own dynasty, who can be patron, craftsman, rouge or scholar.
You do your job, get married, have kids, maybe get a public position, buy a title and eventually be the biggest man in town.
There are other dynasties around who try to "win" just like you do.
the game has 3 gamemodes, which are Dynasties, Extinction and Missions, by far my favourite is dynasties, as its just a relaxing game where the ai doesnt want to murder you right away nor is there a clear end.
Its a great game, im loving it.
Graphics are decent enough.
They sounds are alright tought there are some weirdness with looping sounds.
Gameplay is fun, pathfinding is a bit problematic from time to time.
The biggest problem with the game is the out of sync issues when playing multiplayer.
This is cause The game doesnt use client-server network, instead it uses p2p networking where nobody can agree of anything. Just make sure all the players have decent connection, the right mods installed and a long list of saves to prevent corruption (also tunngle or game ranger as the game dont have its server thing up anymore (hamachi dont work as well as the others) )
Get it while your hands are so fragile, so pure.
Also, get the Patch 4.17b.
