What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Glorious Companions is a project that we've spent years building and designing. It has gone through a lot of different iterations and after so many years we're eager to know what you think about the project. With the scope of the game your feedback will be crucial to nail the balance of the combat, adjust the AI and iron out all the kinks.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to keep the game in Early Access for as long as we need to get the game to a state that we feel is full-release worthy (current estimate is June 2021). Along the way we'll be adding new mechanics and content along with polishing existing features with frequent updates. During this time we'll try to make most of the updates add new stuff to the world in your current play-through but some changes may require starting a new story to see them.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In the full version we plan to have the following content and features:
  • An immersive storyline that'll have you decide the fate of the whole continent
  • Neutral groups
  • Over 50 spells and special abilities
  • Challenging Dungeon system
  • 5 Dungeons, with at least 2 dedicated defenders and a tough boss per dungeon (all with special abilities of their own)
  • Cities visual overhaul along with a new UI
  • Giant overhaul of the World Map looks
  • Custom soundtrack accompanying the new World Map

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the moment we already have:
  • Two playable races - Valrenay and Scarres with 5 unit archetypes and 4 customizable player character classes per race.
  • Almost complete battle mechanics with stuff like flanking, special abilities, etc.
  • Recruiting new companions, training them, leaving them in special facilities where they can learn new skills.
  • 25 weapons where each is viable in certain situations.
  • 20 various armor pieces to customize your companion’s look.
  • Procedurally generated World Map with its cities, inhabitants and political setup.
  • Special world map interactive objects that can yield a great reward, however at a substantial risk.
  • Quests
  • Overarching Goals
  • Custom Battle mode
  • Local and Online multiplayer mode

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game's price will most likely increase after the full launch. Adventurers that decide to join us early on in the quest will be able to buy Glorious Companions cheaper and have impact on the game's final state.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community's feedback will be invaluable to us during the development process. Glorious Companions features a lot of different combat mechanics, items, abilities and units and by rolling out all the features gradually we'll be able to fine tune it using community discussions. We'll keep you in the loop by posting frequent devlogs where you might find a poll or two to directly help us if needed.”

About This Game

Glorious Companions is a turn based tactical RPG set in an original fantasy world of Navaroth where you craft your own journey as a leader of a mercenary company. You’ll spend most of your time training and equipping your companions to become an unstoppable force on the battlefield, ready to take on wild beasts just as well as war parties.



We’ve come up with this idea back in 2009, and throughout many iterations and attempts it’s flourished into what it is currently. Keep in mind that the current version is still far from our goal and the game is under heavy development as you can see in our news section.


The Valrenay were the last to join the war that’s been consuming the islands for centuries. Up until recently they only kept to themselves, developing their technology in peace. Now they’re fighting for their piece of the cake, fielding troops equipped with firearms and steam-powered body enhancements.


Scarres were getting the short end of the stick for quite some time, until the new generation of Shamans was born. Under their leadership they began to take back lands that were once theirs. Scarres control the dangerous Blood Magics to wreck havoc on the battlefield. Their units get more powerful as their allies get withered or die near them due to their unique faction rule called "Vengeance".


  • Custom and gritty combat system: no one is invincible as a single well-aimed strike can take out a careless warrior.
  • No battle is truly over until it’s over: eliminate the enemy captain to win the battle, but be careful as it works the other way around too!
  • Tried and proven formula: the world of Navaroth has its roots in an original pen-and-paper RPG system featuring a science based magic system.
  • Pick your side: become an ally to the vengeful Scarres or join the ranks of the wise Valrenay militia. More factions will be revealed during the development.
  • Take care of your men: keep their morale high by serving them luxury food and alcohol, train them at special facilities when they gather enough experience and crucially - don’t let them bleed out after a tough battle.
  • No two soldiers are ever the same: play to your units natural predispositions, train and equip them to your liking.
  • New world on each playthrough: the continent and its political climate are procedurally generated at the beginning of every journey.


We've recently released a pretty big update that added Fog of War to battles and addressed a lot of core gameplay, balance and progression issues. You can read more on that in our Announcements section.


We’re a small indie developer from Poland and we’re working hard to realize our dream project. We specialize in mechanics-heavy games for the PC, we only work on games that we want to play ourselves, and we’re all PC gamers at heart. With Glorious Companions we’re inspired by both video game classics such as Mount & Blade and Heroes of Might and Magic series, but also by an array of miniature wargames and pen-and-paper RPGs that we love to play in our free time.
