What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Solstice is a true retro wargsaming experience, full of classic game-play and features from a very well loved genre. We've chosen to release Solstice in Early Access to give players a chance to help develop, by sharing thier ideas, the kind of game that they want to play. At release that game will feature one main campaign, but we plan to add more over time, as well as opening up a fully featured editor allows players to develop and share thier own scenarios.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We believe that Solstice will remain in Early Access for around 6 months.”

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

“We have many ideas for the future of Solstice, each of which will add additional elements to the game,. The list is too long to include all of our ideas here, but expect additional magic items, and objects, each of which can swing the tide of battle, more campaigns, a wider range to terrain features, more races, etc.

In addition to a wider range of landscape features offering additional stategic options, we plan to include a full fledged game editor, allowing users to develop and share thier own games with other Solstice players.

We would also like to support other OS's in future, more on that as the game develops.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As it stands Solstice is a fully playable turn-based wargame, based on the classic games, Lords of Midnight and Doomdarks Revenge. The game isn't a remake in any way, but aims to capture the feel of these much loved games.”

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

“We have no plans to change the prince when we leave early access.”

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

“We welcome all feedback, and have a history of listen and adapting our games based on user comments. We consider every comment, and hope that we can involve our players at every stage to build a classic game, that refelcts our love of the original games that inspired us to develop Solstice.”

About This Game



Solstice is a very retro wargame, heavily inspired by the classic games Lords of Midnight, Doomdarks Revenge and Sorderon's Shadow. Solstice is not a remake of any of these games but takes its lead from these games to develop a new gaming challenge for lovers of turn-based, menu driven strategy. Displayed using hand-drawn artwork, and using a pseudo-3D technique, often referred to as landscaping, which echoes the games of the time.

Set in the mythical land of Dourfrost, a land, trapped in an eternal winter, a land of fantastic beasts, magic and war,

Explore and battle across an open world, populated with 11 different mythical races (at launch), and well over a hundred and twenty characters, each with his or her likes, dislikes, needs, aims, desires and loyalties that shape the game and conflicts to come.

On release, Solstice will feature one very challenging, turn-based scenario, offering many hours of game-play.

The Rise of the Demon King.

While the lords and ladies of Dourfrost have squabbled over petty disputes and brokered and broken pacts and alliances, a dark power has been rising in the south. A power that will shake the entire land and threatens to overwhelm all that stands before it, and enslave everyone in its path.

Sator Grimward, a dark sorcerer, once thought long defeated, has risen again and united the tribes of the Ice Guard. Can Calith, king of the free folk muster the lords and ladies of Dourfrost, and overcome old bitterness, to bring a force of Freefolk, Dwarfs, Fey, Sidhe, Giants, and 6 other races together to defeat the rising storm.



JimJams games are a small, indie development team with a love for the retro games of the '80s and '90s. We only develop games that embrace that era, aiming to provide true classicly styled gaming, with a massive retro feel, maybe with a slight hint of what these games would have been with a little more processing power.

We don't aim to develop AAA games, but simply to bring our passion for a time gone by to those who love truly classic themed and inspired games. If this is a genre and era that you love, then our games are for you.
