About This Game


Welcome, friends, to The Battle of Polytopia, a unique, turn-based strategy game involving strange lands and charismatic tribes, clever technologies, and captivating magic where the ultimate goal is to rule the world. Obvs!


Scene: Enter the Square, the bizarre home planet of the Polytopians, a flat, square-shaped landmass drifting in the space of an alternate dimension to ours. A relatively simple and curious folk that has a penchant for fighting, the Polytopians are 16 individual tribes spread out across the Square, each with their own characteristics, motivations, strengths, and weaknesses. As a player, you will take on the role of the ruler of one of these tribes as you attempt to build your civilization in competition with the other tribes.

Will you choose to be the leader of the Xin-Xi, reserved yet adventurous traditionalists who are wary of change or outsiders? Perhaps the Hoodrick, who love archery, nature, and mushrooms, and are famed for their baked goods! Or maybe the Bardur, where the local tavern is their favorite place and Ullefurgh their drink choice, a delightful concoction of pine needles, hot water, and rabbit fat. Deeeelicious!!

But beware of the Vengir, purple rhino-pig riding warriors who, in between bouts of pillaging, like to sharpen their swords and vacation at the misty Kithkga Boneyards. You really don’t want to get on their bad side!
