PlayFortress is a castle building game where the player controls characters such as the Lord, Master Mason and Engineer using them to construct elaborate castle fortifications and settlements whilst managing their economy.

The inspiration for the game was to attempt something new with the castle building genre, to create a game focuses upon how castles were constructed during the medieval era.

Early Access

The following features are currently implemented in the Early Access version:

Castle Editing (Master Mason Mode)

    • Place down castle pieces such as keeps, free-standing towers, drum towers and gatehouses
      • Connect towers to castle pieces
      • Connect forebuildings to castle pieces
      • Add/remove floors
      • Manipulate castle pieces (change size, rotate, scale edges).
    • Walls
      • Connect walls to castle pieces
      • Connect ends of walls together
      • Bend walls to create curved sections
    • Customise castle pieces
      • Change crenelllation styles
      • Change roof types
      • Change gatehouse entrance types
  • Paint mode for changing castle styles (type of stone)
  • Attachments for adding windows, doors, arrow loops, shields and banners
  • Buildings
    • Various buildings are available such as the Master Mason Lodge, carpenter hut, blacksmith, market houses and scenery objects such as statues and market stalls.

All castle geometry pieces, walls and buildings can be placed on uneven ground ensuring castles can be built upon slopes and mounds (castle mottes).

Work In Progress

More features will be added later, some of these features are currently work in progress and can be seen at the end of the PlayFortress trailer video including:

  • Building Systems mode for customising (town/settlement) buildings
  • Engineer mode for terraforming landscape
  • Lord mode where the castle can be viewed as it is constructed.

More information will be posted on our Steam store page forums and website.
