Merchants and Ports Update - Beta Now Available

Hi Everyone,

Hope you're all having a good new year so far! The beta version of our latest update is now available for testing in the next-version-preview branch here on steam. The major features to look for are bigger maps, merchant ships, transport ships, independent islands, and a job priority system.

We've been hot-patching the beta a few times a week and fixing bugs as people report them, but remember this update is a beta so there are likely more bugs we have yet to squash. Thanks to everyone who has tested so far!

Here's how to try it:
  • Select Kingdoms and Castles in your library, right click it and hit properties.
  • In the menu that pops up click the "Betas" tab.
  • Select "next-version-preview-" in the dropdown menu. Your game will update to the latest beta of the new update.

Merchants and Ports - Progress

Hi Everyone!

We wanted to give a quick report on our progress with the new Merchants and Ports update. This update is big in scope, with new buildings and some big new systems. We're in the process of finishing some things up and testing internally in preparation for a beta branch release. When the beta branch is ready you'll get a chance to try it out and we'll incorporate feedback.

Chat with us on discord or follow on twitter for more frequent updates.

Here's a quick look at our current progress - keep in mind this is work-in-progress and will likely change a bit before releasing:

Docks, Transport Ships, Outposts, Islands


These are screenshots from our dev build. We're adding deep water where nothing can be built. Only ships will be able to cross it. This creates distinct islands on larger maps that you'll get to settle using a new building called the Outpost. You can then use the transport ships and docks we're adding to link your settlements together to ship resources where they are needed in your kingdom.

Bigger Maps

We're adding the much requested larger map size. You'll be able to play on the old size still if you want, but the larger size has roughly 2x the number of tiles.

And there's a bunch more good stuff coming as well!

Right now we're getting some of the last big features ready (job prioritization, AI merchant ships that arrive from across the sea to buy and sell resources and special upgrades).

We're not sure yet when the update will be ready but it's getting close.

Keep a look out for another announcement when the beta branch is ready!

About This Game

Kingdoms and Castles is a game about growing a kingdom from a tiny hamlet to a sprawling city and imposing castle.

Your kingdom must survive a living and dangerous world. Do the viking raiders make off with your villagers? Or are they stopped, full of arrows, at the castle gates? Does a dragon torch your granary, your people dying of starvation in the winter, or are you able to turn the beast back? The success of your kingdom depends solely on your skill as a city and castle planner.


Strategically layout your town to improve your peasants' happiness and to attract new residents. Tax them just enough to fund your castle. Make sure your peasants are fed in the winter and healed of plagues. Build churches to keep them from despair and taverns to keep them happy. You can even throw festivals if you've built a town square! Send out wood cutters to collect wood, set up stone quarries to build your castles, and farm the land efficiently so your town can grow and thrive.





The new land you're settling is at risk of viking invasion. These raiders seek to kidnap and kill your peasants, steal your resources, and burn your town to the ground. Use a powerful castle building system where castles are constructed using blocks which can be placed anywhere. Towers and walls are dynamically created based on how you stack and arrange them. Archer towers and other weapon emplacements have longer range the higher their tower. Try different layouts to best protect your kingdom and express your glory as a king or queen.





And it all takes place in a beautiful dynamic world with a stylized procedural cloud system and season cycle from summer to winter. A realistic tree growth algorithm simulates the forests. Depending on your needs, wood cutters can clear cut or responsibly manage your forests.






Kingdoms and Castles is the first Fig funded game to be released. Its crowd funding campaign succeeded with 725% of its goal and was supported by 1,400 backers. Supporters of the game could both pledge and invest during the Fig campaign.
