What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The goal of having Warsim on early access is growth, the game has already grown beyond my imagination thanks to the suggestions of the players and there are rarely bad ideas, while in early access the game will grow much more!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is hard to say how long Warsim will be in early access as there are some big plans for the games development that may take a while to fully implement, the plans are to add a full magic system with special rules and laws of magic unique to each world, a fully working dynamic economy system, parties of adventurers that will travel the world completing quests and pushing their agendas, random religions gods and cults which will have a huge influence on the world and further development of the diplomacy system.”

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

“The finished game will be huge and will contain a great deal of randomization, customization and player modability, the game will eventually have the ability to spawn 100s of kingdoms at once and offer much more varied playthroughs and will allow more options for moddability from the players.

The game will include a much more in depth diplomacy system with deeper and more meaningful alliances and actions, free a bunch of slaves, that slaver-hating kingdom will remember that and like you, wipe out a minor tribe of goblins, the grand goblin empire will hold that against you!

The game will also include much more advanced economy features such as resource trading and different currency values, perhaps the orcish kingdom is desperate for food following a draught but is absolutely booming with well made swords, your surplus grain and bread leads to you having a well geared army.

The game will also include randomly generated adventurer parties, they will spawn as time goes on and each have their own motives, they may spawn within your kingdom or from others, a group of adventurers from the goblin kingdom might set out with the tasks of fighting goblin hunters and destroying your goblin slavery ring, perhaps groups set out to hunt bandits, defeat famed villains, explore the lands, find treasure or famed artifacts, you can even send for and summon them, if they accept you can send them to quest for you.

There will also be a focus on randomly generated exploration, at the moment we have the north, east, south and west but the plan is to develop the exploration aspect of the game so that there will be an infinite amount of regions each with several randomly generated locations relevant to the generated region, for example 'Dolburn Woodlands' a dangerous goblin woodland will spawn with several locations relevant to woodlands and goblins and will almost always be something dangerous, so you will find it littered with goblin traps, little tribal camps and even a goblin fort or two, and once you've cleared the region you can travel on and explore the next region, be it an undead desert, abandoned mountain or murky swamp, there will be plenty to do.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The currently early access version contains the vast majority of the core features of the game, including,

  • The Arena which you can own, watch and bet on fights in and arrange tournaments
  • Quadrillions of randomly generated faces
  • 1000s of randomly generated races and kingdoms you can interact with
  • A throne room with 100s of encounters
  • Tons of random events in the game world
  • Full exploration of over 50 locations
  • tons of randomly generated musicians and music
  • randomly generated mercenary groups
  • 20+ readable books and song lyrics
  • 13 upgradable buildings
  • procedurally generated court staff
  • And tons more!

There are still many things to be implemented on the horizon including magic systems, gods, religion, adventurer parties, economy and much more!”

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

“The price will rise a little bit once early access is finished”

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

“The community will be involved every step of the way, mostly through reddit discussions though I am happy to answer any questions and take on board any feedback players may have, we have many platforms for discussion but all comments are welcomed”

“okay, I must say this is one the most enjoyable games I have played in a looong time! the fact that you have managed to create such an amazing in-depth gaming experience just blows my mind:D! I enjoyed this more than I enjoyed Rome II total war and Warhammer total war combined.”

About This Game

In 'Warsim: The Realm of Aslona', your only goal is to keep the kingdom running, weather you thrive and become a mighty empire or fall to ruin. How you rule is entirely up to you, you may become a harsh dictator charging people a tax for breathing air, or a blood-hungry warlord commanding armies and mercenary bands on invasions of enemy land, or perhaps a charismatic diplomat with vast trade networks and alliances.

Warsim's core focus is allowing the player to do whatever they want, with the relevant consequences of course (and perhaps we've gone too far in that aspect). Do you want to destroy the bank because you owe them a 1 gold loan, sure, want to imprison every musician who visits your court to disuade bards from visiting you, done, want to gamble and waste away all of your gold betting on scorpion fighting and dice games, yes, yes and yes! (If you want to learn more read below)

Some of Warsim's main or more interesting features include...



Explore the rich and vast world filled with over 100 locations to be visited/bought/plundered, you can shape the world how you see fit. Visit a giant Blackmarket filled to the brim with mystery and wonder, discover hidden cities (yep mutliple of them!), A scorpion fighting pit, Strange villages, and cult like towns. There has been an excessive amount of time spent fleshing out the world. Exploration is well rewarded!





In the throne room you are tasked with talking to and dealing with the people of your realm, be you a small kingdom with a line of 10 visitors, or a mighty empire with lines of 1000s of people. You will encounter gamblers, bards, tricksters, mercenaries, common folk, beggars, and everything in between. Over 1000 different encounters with complex solutions and reactions. How will you manage your realm? Will you install trap doors and send those foolish enough to visit you plummeting to their deaths? or will you hire a capable steward to deal with them in your stead! The choice is yours.





Warsim's unique and in-depth procedural race generation system has been developed for years and currently produces a total of 75,066,204 possible races, which pretty much means you'll never see the same race twice, in fact statistically the races you see will never have been seen by anyone before! you might find Seafaring Goblins, Fire Orcs, Eyeless Elves or the Famed Half-Turtles of the Western Turtledom, Orange Ogretaurs, Inbred Trench Dwarves, and millions more races you couldn't imagine!

Each of these races has their own birth rate, a level of civility (or savageness), three unique units each with different battle scores, their own laws and societial standards (like xenophobia), and varying traits depending on their racial prefixes pulling from a large list of unique racial abilities sure to make each playthrough unique!





It's not just the races that are massively procedural in Warsim, it's also the faces! The total number of faces is somewhere in the range of 100+ Quadrillion, which lets face it (I'll show myself out), it's basically infinite. This means that all of those enemy rulers, all of those staff members, and everyone who appears in your throne room are all faces seen only in that moment by you, and never again by anyone else in the world! Pretty cool huh?

Here are 10 of the 62,418,146,400,000 (62.4 Trillion) different orcish faces!



And another bunch of faces from various in game races!





The Arena is another important location within your kingdom, here heroes rise and fall while others are remembered for eternity, clever gamblers make their fortune, great and exhalted tournaments are held, and the public sate their appetite for blood! You can find the Arena in a variety of shapes and can even take it for yourself, setting the cost of entry, changing the rules, and upgrading it as you wish!





Games within games? You bet! Ruling a kingdom can be boring at times and you may wish entertainment to pass the time, hire a gamesmaster to fill your time when you're bored or play one of the many games littered thoughout the taverns and locations of the world, games that include: Snail Racing, Bat Racing, Rat Racing, Rock paper scissors, 21 the dice game, Dragon wench knight, Sudden death (4 rule sets), Coin flipping, Guess the dice, Swampy cup game, Thralls finger, Animal pit fighting, Scorpion pit fighting, and loads more!





Are you a lover of the procedural arts? Why not listen to the procedurally generated songs of one of the many bards of the Warsim world, or make your way to the musicians guild or the Goblinwood school of drums and try your hand at playing music yourself. The world is filled with all manner of procedurally terrible musicians, from Orc grunters, Gnome whistlers, Goblin drummers, Clickers, Vamprire luteplayers, and several others! Hire one as your own personal court bard and train them to play better and faster!





Ruling a kingdom isn't all warfare and conquest, kick back, relax, and gather your people together for a celebration of your design! Or travel around and visit the exclusive celebrations of the peoples of the world, Including: The Blackmarket Century Festival, a huge festival held in the gem of the north, or if you treat them right the great GOBLINWOOD JAMBOREE! A once a-decade experience in the goblin town of Goblinwood.

Here's a goblin drinking competition! (it's pretty easy because goblins can't drink!)





Is being an honest and good natured ruler not for you? Would you prefer sending your loyal warriors to depths unseen to enslave beasts of the underworld for you to train and fight? If the answer is yes then you're in luck, build a monster pit in your kingdom and hold up to 3 of over 27'000 Procedurally generated monsters inside! Fight them and train them against any of 45 opponent trainers! Do you have what it takes?





A tough day on the throne? why not get drunk in one of the many different taverns around the world. Here you can find a myriad of different drinks with varying effects and tons of things to get up to in each tavern. Be warned though, drink too much and you may blackout and wake next to a sleeping ogress, or to a lighter coinpurse... And we won't even talk about the hangovers!
