What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a modest team of indie developers, but we want to create a really high-quality game. In order to be able to convey the goals and improve the mechanics of the game and polish the balance system, we need your support. You will be able to observe how the project develops, and the first to test the innovations of the game mechanics.

We believe that together we can create a new word in the RTS genre.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We will post add-ons that extend and improve game mechanics throughout all development period. The completion of work on the game is to be in summer 2019.”

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

“In the final version we will add new maps, game modes, expand the game mechanics, multiplayer and campaign. Also we will have improved interface, graphics and music for the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the early access version, three game sides are available: the European Confederation, the Chinese Empire and the Timurid Caliphate. You can play any of them in various game modes:
- Art of War: Here you will find out more on tactics and strategy in the game.
- Skirmishes: In this mode, you need to quickly expand your realm by building new cities. Your main objective is the destruction of all urban centers of the enemy.
- Survival: In this mode, you will need to counter threats and last for a certain period. After this, the help will arrive, helping you to destroy the enemy settlements.”

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

“After the release of the game its price may rise to $20.”

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

Update of the warfare mechanics



Hello friends!
Over the past month we have focused on improving the warfare mechanics.
We have improved the squad management. Now they almost never overlap each other. As a result, the battles have become even more ambitious, and the control of the positioning of your troops is even more important now.


We continue working on the multiplayer. We will try and add it in the nearest future.

Help us become better - write in the comments on what you think of the current changes and what has to be improved or added in the nearest future.

Wargame Mode



Greetings!

Today we have released a new update. You will see many new things:
We have added the Wargame Mode. It automates construction and the process of ordering troops. You will only have to choose development priorities and conduct warfare.

We have added a new map "Brave New World". It is available in Survival and Skirmish modes.
Achievements added to the game.
We made changes to the line of Chinese troops to improve the game balance.
Now each game side has engineers who can build underground passages. Now you will have even more chances of attacking the enemy’s defenseless positions.

About This Game

Taste of Power is a PC game about the alternative world of Middle Ages in the RTS genre. It shows the confrontation between Europe, China and the Middle East for dominance on the continent. The game includes building cities, recruiting troops, studying technologies and fighting large-scale warfare.

Taste of Power brings you a new experience of medieval warfare:
Artillery dramatically changes the course of battles. The numeral superiority no longer guarantees victory.
Engineers allow creating mobile defenses to protect strategic positions.
Underground tunnels allow transferring troops to defenseless enemy areas.


In addition, each side has a multitude of unique troops:
The warriors of Europe can form the construction of the “Phalanx”, build a wall of stakes, invoke the Crusaders, and have gunpowder artillery. European support troops can build fortifications, monks can raise the morale of the troops, and spies can revolt in enemy cities.


Chinese troops can create smoke screens to protect against enemy arrows, provoke support for Mongolian horsemen and have early rocket artillery. Chinese support troops can set up medical tents, traps and poison grenades.


Timurids is the third game side. They are represented by the warriors of the Middle East. War elephants, chariots with incendiary oils, engineers who can build underground tunnels and a lot more will be under your control.


The economy of the game is similar to a town-planning simulator in scale: the houses are built around the administrative center, the workers who collect resources, process them and carry finished goods to the warehouse, come out of them. In this case a player needs just a few clicks to manage cities. In addition to this, you can learn a lot of technologies in the game, trade and loot caravans.


Taste of Power is a game that challenges your strategy skills: will you be able to make the right decisions in a limited time-frame? Prove your speed and tactics by defeating the brutal AI. Discover a new word in real-time strategies and feel the Taste of Power.
