LordsAWar! – free, turn-based strategy game

LordsAWar! is a 2D turn-based strategy game in a fantasy setting where up to 8 players strive for control of as many cities as possible.

The goal of this project is to make a game that is similar to Warlords II.

Produce new armies in cities to conquer nearby cities. Using the income from those cities, make more armies to take more cities. Send a hero to a temple to get a quest, or maybe search a nearby ruin instead. You can also send a hero to a temple to get a quest or maybe search a nearby ruin instead.

This game should run well on even modest hardware.

Features include:

  • Refined artifical intelligence
  • 3 distinct roles
    • Acts as a General who controls all of military strategy
      elements of the
      game; moving armies around the map, conquering cities and managing the
      production of new army units
    • Acts as a diplomatic envoy, managing diplomatic
      relations with every other player
    • Acts as a tax collector, automatically collecting gold
      pieces from each
      city that has been conquered. This pays for the maintenance of army
      units already created. The income can also be used to buy new and
      different kinds of army units
