Hearthlands is a real-time strategy game in which you take a role of a king in your own medieval/fantasy realm. You can not control your subjects directly. Instead you focus on city-building, resource management, diplomacy, heroes, magic and other things a typical king deals with on a daily basis. The world of the game, maps, characters and opponents are procedurally generated.

The game is very flexible: you can create a powerful empire and rule your vassals with an iron grip, or establish a humble fishermen's village. Or build an impressive temple complex. Or found a small, bur well-defended outpost. Or be a host of a wizard's manor.

All characters, from a hauler to a hero have their own minds and behavior patterns. If you like games like The Settlers of Pharaoh you know how pleasant and interesting it is to watch people scurry about.

Implemented features
  • Build a medieval city
  • Keep your people happy by providing them with necessary resources
  • Gather resources and build industries
  • See reports and tune up your economy

Planned features
  • Maintain relationships with AI rulers
  • Trade with your allies

  • Expand your kingdom by establishing colonies
  • Explore the map, fight monsters, find artifacts and complete quest
  • Hire powerful heroes and level them up
  • Worship gods and get their blessings (or feel their wrath)
  • Build mega-constructions
  • Magic!
