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.

Simon's hands, more elementals and economy changes.

Posted by on

Simon got bitten by a cat (ironically it was not one of his 13 cats). His right hand has swollen, so we haven't been able to make much progress with graphics this week. Just realized how this sounds like a dumbest excuse ever:) It's getting better now.

In addition to stone elementals we have coal, iron and gold ones now. They are tough but for defeating them you will get respective resource.

Two luxury resources have been added (boots and clothes) to make evolving your houses smoother. Also we rebalanced the economy a lot.

Instead of "food + 3 luxury resources" scheme we have "food + alcohol + 4 luxury resources" scheme now. Currently the only type of alcohol in the game is cider, but we'll be adding beer, wine and mead.

Tax & Employment window has been expanded, so now you can set employment priorities much more precisely. Almost every building type has its own category.

Overview window has been expanded as well (nevermind alcohol, boots and clothes placeholders).

Apparently skeletons can go through the gatehouse, which makes it kind of useless. This has been fixed.

In other news: check out three new articles about Hearthlands on GamingOnLinux (first and second) and IndieRetroNews.

We plan to release the update with new economy, elementals and trade improvements in a couple of weeks (hopefully Simon won't turn into a cat before that) and then get to diplomacy and/or other new mechanics.
