What is Castledom...
... And where is it today?
At its most basic, Castledom is a 4 player PC and tabletop board game. There are 8 factions to choose from, each with their own unique art and voice acting on the PC. There are different unit types that are the basis for combat, and the ability to improve your regions with buildings that provide resource and combat benefits. Conquer regions through combat, and take your opponents castle to defeat them!
The core gameplay loop on the PC and board game is fairly straightforward - take your turn, resource collection, unit and building purchases/unit movement and combat, conquering regions. Ends when all opponents are defeated, and games are about 30 minutes to an hour so far.
Currently I am working on adding individual units to the PC game so you have a physical army to move and attack/defend specific regions. Before I get to an alpha and get playtesters, I will add a second map. This is to make sure that the core gameplay works on multiple maps with different playstyles. I can also see if the maps will work or if they need to be changed.
Last few months has been slow going as I am making this project outside of work and life in general. Next update should have more meat to it!
