Hey, you’re supposed to be playing the Rise of Industry campaign!! I’ve got 2 days of sale left at Fanatical!
just giving you a hard time :-)
Will do a post over in the Rise of Industry thread, its not worth getting yet. ;)
Thanks, that’s good to know! I wasn’t impressed with the demo.
I did pick up Kingdoms and Castles though.
Good choice! :D
One worry I have is the land masses look fairly small. Is that not a problem in the game?
I highly recommend that new players spam the starting location button repeatedly until they get a large island area with trees, fertile ground, regular stone and even iron.
Later on, smaller islands can be part of a challenge. They definitely add to the difficulty.
I got this during the last Steam sale. Upside was there was lots of fun from what’s there, downside is I burned through what’s there in about a week. I was left wanting more, so a new update is most welcome!
Apparently enemy/rival AIs are in the works. That may really give this game some incredible legs.
I played it a few weeks ago. It’s nice but once I figured out just to build big, tall towers I was all set. The range needs to be nerfed. It’s weird that one set of towers can cover half the island.
I’ve played for several hours today and have a little city of 300+ going. I’ve battled back several waves of dragons and vikings. I’ve run out of fertile land so I need to clear out some trees. I wish there was a way to group select some trees for chopping.
Like @wisefool, I’ve finding tall towers pretty darn effective, especially with the dragons. I probably need some soldiers to slow down the vikings. I’ve got some walls, but I don’t have my town walled off.
I’ll probably keep trying to expand for a bit.
I think I probably expand pretty slowly, but I got my city up to 600 people. I think it took me about 100 game years - 6 real hours. Killed some new enemies. Right now clearing trees is the thing that slows me down the most because I get tired of clicking on them.
I just realized now I can recruit heros. I’m not sure if they are the ones to lead my troops - I finally built a barracks.
I think I’ve had enough of it for now. It was a nice diversion for a while.
I haven’t tried those yet. It was a fun little game, but I quickly ran out of things to do and shelved it until it had more content.
I played a little with them, and marked it as “to come back to”.
Too many other things pulling my attention, but game keeps getting support and content.
I played one game of this and I think it was after the beautification update. If was fun until it wasn’t :-)
I think I enjoyed about 5 hours of it then it got too repetitive. Clearing forests brought things to a crawl a little bit too.
Warfare Update! Also some QoL features.
Fish and Pigs!
My 4 year old loves watching me play this. I can’t build any towers because she doesn’t want to hurt the dragon.
That is CUTE!
