I saw an early access ad for a new game called Foundation. Its set in medieval times where you create and manage a medieval village, to a town, to a city (I assume) – billed as “the ultimate medieval ant-farm simulation”. The in-game art style is terrific and I do like a good “city builder”.
I like the idea that there is no strict clock to race against. Its created and published by Polymorph Games.I’ll be hoping to grab it on special rather than full pre-release or release price, but I’ve added i to my shortlist anyway to keep an eye on.
Thank you Steam. It looks like a covenant builder prototype, sure there is no magic, but the game promises to have random events and a huge variety of options.
Its no secret that I’m a huge fan of Ars Magica and also of computer games, and now an agreement between Atlas Games and Black Chicken Studios is seeking to combine those two wonderful hobbies.
Black Chicken Studios, working under license from Atlas Games, is delighted to present a new simulation role-playing game for the PC. After 25 years and 5 editions, Ars Magica will at long last be paid tribute in a single-player, turn-based video game.
Authentic to the original, this is a faithful, beautiful, and accurate depiction of covenant gameplay and the RPG’s legendary magic system during a dangerous century in the Stonehenge Tribunal. With your help, we’ll bring Ars Magica: Years of Conquest and its tapestry of wars, intrigue, invasion and, above all, magic to life!
The Ars Magica – Years of Conquest game is seeking backing via a kickstarter campaign.
I can only rave about how passionate Atlas Games are about Ars magica, and really hope this concept gets through to reality.
If you are a fan of either, spread the word.
