Roadmap and Future Development

Our launch is really just the beginning for Kingdoms and Castles, we’ve got a lot planned for the game coming up! Stay up to date on progress on twitter, facebook, or discord.

We'll be working toward big updates, but will also do smaller patch releases more frequently.

If you want to try the very latest version before it’s released, check out the steam branch called next-version-preview. Nothing is in there now, but we’ll post an announcement when a new build is ready. Keep in mind that the build in this branch is for testing and will likely have some issues and bugs.

Planned Updates
  • [In Development Now] - Merchants and Ports - build a port and merchant ships will dock to allow buying and selling goods. Sometimes they’ll even offer special upgrades for your town and castle.

  • [In Development Now] - Twitch Integration - Optional feature to let viewers interact with your game as you play. Viewers will get to vote on special events each year that can befall your kingdom. Perhaps they’ll help by voting for a windfall harvest, or they can make things more exciting by voting for things like fires, invasions, and plagues.

  • Hero System - A special hero unit you have direct control over. Depending on hero type they can help fight vikings or help your town run more smoothly.

  • Map Special Features - Maps have a chance to reveal a secret feature for your kingdom to contend with or take advantage of, things like bandit camps, ancient ruins.

  • VR Support - Play the game in VR! We’re investigating the VIVE right now.

  • And more - We’ve got a huge list of other stuff we’ll be organizing and updating the roadmap with as they’re ready. If you’ve got ideas or things you’d like to see in the game, come chat with us on discord and head over to the #ideas channel!

Had a slight delay, but we're ready to release the game on July 20th. Hope you can wait a few more days!

It's been quite an adventure, this game started as a little project my friend and I tinkered. We're very proud of what it's become with the help of our Fig crowd funding campaign and all our wonderful backers. Thank you!

Of course, this is just the beginning! We're already working on the next big update - Merchants and Ports. We'll be releasing a roadmap soon with more details.

Price will be $9.99 USD.

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 castes, 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.
