Do you know what makes a good game?
We’re pretty sure you do, so make your opinion count – and help independent developers at the same time. Each game’s campaign ends after 28 days, and if the response is strong, we may offer to support the project in the future!
Bannermen takes you back to a time where power lies with the person who carries the sword. Command your troops through the war-ridden land, place your banner and let no one stand in your way to fame and glory.
Bannermen is a real-time strategy (RTS) game, developed by the Swedish studio Pathos Interactive. The game will test your abilities as a battle commander where the main tasks consist of base building, resource management and battling enemy armies.
Bannermen will contain a singleplayer campaign, where you get to follow an abandoned lord who recently lost his land and nobility. The campaign constitutes a journey from the bottom to the top, where the goal is to make your lord retake his position as one of the mightiest in the realm.
Since the game does not take place in a certain time or place on earth, we have had the liberty to create our very own setting. However, the style of the buildings and units are inspired by the medieval period in north and western Europe. Some examples are shown below.
Bannermen takes place in a vast kingdom where the climate varies. Therefore, the maps and the environment varies depending on where in the realm you are located. You will experience everything from wintry landscapes to green valleys and deserts.
An awesome feature in Bannermen is the dynamic level events. Several maps, especially the ones in the campaign, contain environmental events that are designed to create interesting scenarios with diﬀerent strategic paths possible. Therefore, a tactic that appears to be successful on one map, may be disastrous on another. The environmental events are either timed or triggered by the player. Avalanches, lightning strikes, earthquakes and ice-melting are some examples.
The game will be released on PC/Mac.
