Conquest! Medieval Realms is out.
« on: June 04, 2009, 10:06:32 PM »
Although a very small game this one is a fun little puzzle strategy game we have also co-developed, our contribution was quite modest, but we are still happy to see it out!

Conquest! Medieval Realms, developed by Illustrious Software and The Lordz Games Studio, is a turn-based game where the objective is to conquer up to 7 opposing players (either AI players or other human players) by defeating their armies and capturing their lands - to do this you will need to unite all of your lands, build up a powerful economy, and raise armies to defend the homeland and to take lands from your enemies.
Conquest! Medieval Realms, will be packed with hours and hours of clever fun-packed, brain-bending strategy gaming.


• Conquest! is a simple game to learn, but you will need strategy, tactics and cunning if you expect to defeat all of your enemies and rule the world.
• Play as the English or the French in the Hundred Years War, or fight the Wars of the Roses.
• Play games with up to 8 human players across a LAN or the internet.
• Try your skill against 5 levels of AI in the campaign or skirmish modes.
• Randomly generated maps give you billions of potential battlefields to fight on.
• Use the included editors to create your own maps and campaigns
