New release: Legends of Eisenwald
Word has it that Legends of Eisenwald, a strategy RPG in the same general oeuvre as the King’s Bounty series, has now been released into the world. Developed by Belarusian indie studio Aterdux Entertainment, Legends of Eisenwald has you recruit soldiers, collect gold, garrison castles, and go on adventures that involve frequent, small-scale, turn-based fights on hex-filled battlefields.
The mysterious lands of old Germany are waiting for you – it’s a land where the superstitions of the time have come to life. This isn’t a fantasy game. There are no elves or dragons here. There are only people – and their passions, sins and fears that often take a tangible form. Which path will you choose? Live according to your conscience? Or live by power and might? Or will you live by justice? And what is your justice, really?
Okay. There may not be elves or dragons, but there definitely appear to be some ghosts in the screenshots. Anyway, here’s the game’s release trailer:
I spent some time with a beta version of the game two and a half years ago, and I’m looking forward to checking out the final release to see how things have improved. You needn’t wait for me, though–you can get Legends of Eisenwald right now on Steam or direct from developer via the Humble widget. Windows only; full price is $29.99, though there is the customary launch discount in effect to lessen that a bit.
