Pretty village, pretty flames.

Kingdoms and Castles, a building/strategy game where you expand your humble medieval villages into majestic, castle-crowned cities, is now available, DRM-free on GOG.com!

Medieval times were not the best environment to raise a city in: dragons, raiders, diseases, aggressive weather – they’ll all try to bring it down. But follow a sensible design, keep your citizens in good health, build the odd wall if necessary, and you might give your village a fighting chance in this dynamic, unforgiving world.

For a closer look, check out this highly entertaining video from Yogscast, streaming a beta version of the game during their GOG visit a couple of months ago.

No dragon dealings required to enjoy this.

Visionary designers have been building universes and complex rulesets long before computer RPGs rose to prominence, offering quality escapism to thousands of fans. Jordan Weisman, now the CEO of Harebrained Schemes, was at the forefront of it all and his imagination helped shape the . If you had to pick two important similarities and two main differences between these games, what would they be?

JW: Well besides the giant stompy robot things 🙂 Shadowrun is a story driven RPG with tactical combat where as BattleTech is a tactical combat game with story and RPG elements.

Between tabletop, pen & paper, and video games, you’ve been in the field for almost 40 years now! Any crazy stories to share? What’s the thing that keeps you going?

JW: Ok I am old, but not quite that old 🙂 I have had the enormous pleasure of professionally making tabletop and video games for 37 years now. There are too many crazy stories to share and if I did so I wouldn’t have time to make the games. What keeps me going? The same thing that started me out all those years ago: I love telling stories in which the players are the heroes and heroines, and I love working with diverse collections of people to make those games and universes come to life.

All three Shadowrun games are up to -80% in our RPG-oriented Weekly Sale.
BattleTech is scheduled for release later this year.

In space, everyone can hear you cheer.

Planet Nomads, the ambitious sci-fi sandbox game that has been exploring alien planets In Development for the past couple of months, just got its price lowered.

Since its release Planet Nomads has gathered fans, doubters, and curious bystanders along the way, but Craneballs (with whom we had a really nice chat a while back) feel that the game’s price tag is sending the wrong message, occasionally leading to disappointment. In response, they’ve decided to lower it, explaining: “The game has often received a negative review because of the higher expectations set by the higher price. We’re confident we are eventually going to expand Planet Nomads to match the expectations set by the original price – the trouble is, being a small team, it’s going to take us a few months to get there.”

Current owners who may feel strongly about this change, are encouraged to reach out to them directly. Moving forward, Craneballs also promise weekly updates every Thursday, with a major one coming at the 17th of August.

So stay tuned, space-builders, and keep your feedback coming – it can only make Planet Nomads better.
