About This Game


A quick turn-based dark fantasy strategy game.
Start off with a Hero, build new armies, and defend your castles as you strategically conquer your enemy's castles.

Take control and play as any of the following factions:
Barbarians - Chaos - Dwarves - Elves - Gadiantons - Knights - Orcs - Reptilians - Undead

Unearth the Darkness. Command the Light.

Telestians thrusts you into an unforgiving, fantastical realm where strategy is not just an option—it's survival. Choose from a myriad of distinct factions, each with its own unique attributes and units, and prepare for a game of intricate strategy and dark enchantments.

Whether you're navigating through forests with the Elves' unmatched agility, marching relentlessly with the Undead, or plundering with the Barbarians, your choices will echo through eternity.

Embark on Legendary Journeys

Begin your conquest with a single Hero, a force to be reckoned with, poised to shape destiny. Your Hero isn't just a figurehead but the cornerstone of your burgeoning realm. Gain reputation by vanquishing foes, capturing fortresses, and fulfilling divine quests. As your reputation and level increases, other allies and troops will rally to your cause, each bringing unique capabilities to tip the scales in your favor.

The Secrets of the Ruins

Send your Heroes on perilous expeditions into long-forgotten ruins. What lies within may be treacherous, but the rewards are immeasurable. Discover rare artifacts, forge alliances with mythical creatures, and claim the ultimate armaments for your Heroes.

Tactical Warfare

Your armies are as diverse as the lands they hail from. Command over 120 unique units—from towering colossi to elusive assassins. Customize your regiments and leverage the terrain to turn the tides of battle. Master the art of war and crush all who stand in your path.

Shape the Battlefield

Every game is a new challenge with randomly generated maps rich in varied terrains. Learn to adapt your strategies to the lay of the land, whether it's the soaring mountains favored by Dwarves or the creeping marshlands that empower the Undead.

Forge Your World

Yearning for the perfect scenario? The Map Maker feature allows you to construct your ideal battlefield. Populate it with obstacles, fortresses, and mystical landmarks. Share your creations and relive legendary confrontations.

Conquer or Be Conquered

Telestians is a tribute to classic strategy games, offering an experience both nostalgic and innovative. Battle your way through a world where victory is the only path to eternal glory. Are you ready to stake your claim in the annals of Telestia?
