What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are indie game developers who want early feedback on our product. We also highly value your ideas and welcome new directions the game may take based on this.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 12-18 months, until we reach our desired amount of content and fleshed out features.”

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

“In the final version of the game we plan to have iterated all content, including models, textures, sound effects, music, more scenarios and perhaps even new features. We also plan to expand the support of the game to more platforms, improve the multiplayer experience, and improve the localization to more languages.

The current roadmap looks as follows:
- 2023 August: Early access launched
- 2023 October: OSX version launched
- 2023 Q4: Roman faction assets, graphics, SFX (80% complete)
- Map Editor UX update (has been functional previously but not intuitive)
- Multiplayer updates (Save/Load, fix Diplomacy)
- 2024 Q1: Viking faction assets, graphics, SFX (currently only basic house)
- Roman campaign updates (Currently 2/5 scenarios)
- 2024 Q2: Ottoman faction assets, graphics, SFX
- Viking campaign launch (approx 5 historical scenarios)
- 2024 Q3: Ottoman campaign launch (approx 5 historical scenarios)
- Port to new platform”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You can play the game in single player mode for hours on end, including scenarios, random skirmishes and custom maps. There is also a multiplayer mode in place, but not all aspects of that experience are fleshed out yet. Currently localized to English and Swedish, with a partial French translation.”

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

“The pricing of the game may be adjusted along the way as we see the content and experience improve. It could be increased slightly as we see the quality go up, but could also decrease slightly to encourage more players to give the game a try. If you are unsure if you want to buy the game, we recommend you to join our Discord and try out the slightly more unstable alpha builds that should also give you a hint as to the state and direction the game is taking.”

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

“We welcome any and all feedback! We will keep an eye out in the Steam forums for feedback, and invite you to join our Discord server and give us direct feedback as well!”

About This Game

It all takes place on a board, where you have some zones, or tiles. On each zone you can have settlements, and the zone be one of many types: woods, plains, water, swamp, barren. Zone types affect food production and unit movement speed.

The Settlements are simulated realistically, but simplified, with food production, happiness, sanitation, taxation, etc. As a ruler you can adjust food rationing, taxation levels, and choose to construct improvements to make your settlement better.

You can also interact with other nations, fight them, or trade, perhaps buy some nice products which would make your citizens happier (so you can tax them even further!)

This game features seasons! During Winters, food production is minimized and units take cold damage in the wild lands and within enemy territories. During spring food production increases a tiny bit, but is still low - plants have just been sown. During Summer food production increases and culminates during harvest season in Autumn. All lands have different factors from seasons, so Waters that are fished and Woods that are hunted are less impacted by the seasonal changes, but impacted nonetheless.

  • Combination of settlement-specific Food rationing and Taxation, balanced against their happiness
  • Units on the world map require food rations, and take cold damage during winters, affecting how you need to plan your invasions
  • Improvements all have some benefits, but they might also cost a bit (money), and require some working population (which would otherwise procure food), and some may also give you penalties (such as decreasing sanitation from some industries), forcing you to consider what you build where
  • Units can be recruited at will, but they will cost you both money, population (some villagers are converted to soldiers) and armaments. You need to balance population procuring food, working your improvements, and staffing your armies to not run out of food or money (or inhabitants!).
  • Three Factions can be played, all with their own unique bonuses.
  • A large amount of improvements (70) and research topics (20) are present, providing a myriad of ways for you to develop both individual settlements, as well as your nation overall.
  • Minerals are hidden by default, and need to be prospected on the map. After prospection, you can build mines. Once you have raw materials you can build Smelters to produce Products - which are sold in settlements for wealth and happiness - and stronger Armaments - which can improve your new recruited units.
  • Products, Food and Armaments can all be bought or sold to other nations with the help of Traders. You could also use Traders to ship resources within your nation to enable more ways to use your resources optimally.
  • Scenarios which introduce you to features of the game, as well as historical scenarios (mostly Roman empire right now).
  • Multiplayer mode so you can defeat or collaborate with your friends
  • A wide range of units available (20), primarily divided into infantry, cavalry, ranged and siege


Play through different scenarios with varying difficulty in order to master the game mechanics.
Learn how to balance the different aspects of a successful game session: Food production, sanitation, crime, upkeep and attacking and defending settlements.
After you have learned the basics, embark on a historical journey, following in the footsteps of the roman emperors as they tried to assert control of large parts of Europe and the Mediterranean!

Random skirmishes

If you just want to play a skirmish and want the game to decide all conditions this is for you.
One click and you are in the middle of the action.

Map editor

Can't get enough of the scenarios? Why not build your own?
In the map editor you can edit the terrain, paint the map in different biomes, place settlements and pick the winning conditions.

Long-lasting design

We will continue maintaining and the developing the game post-launch at least for another one or two years until the game feels as polished as we want it to be (we might be perfectionists, but it takes time).
