Medieval Kingdom Wars : sortie et dev diaries

En bref. Après plus de trois ans de développement ce jeu ambitieux des canadiens de Reverie World Studios mêlant STR et Grande stratégie vient de passer en version 1.0 . Le jeu prend pour cadre la guerre de Cent ans, où l’on débute en tant que petit noble au service du roi. Une douzaine de nations et une cinquantaine de seigneurs servant de choix de départ, la suite de l’histoire ne dépendant plus que de vous. Aspect probablement intéressant du gameplay, celui-ci s’inspire des jeux de type rogue-like, il n’y a donc pas de seconde chance via la possibilité de charger une sauvegarde.

Attention, le jeu va encore bénéficier de nombreuses améliorations cette année, les développeurs souhaitant ajouter de nombreuses choses, comme par exemple un mode coopératif pour la campagne.

Update 1.01 – Lets get started

Hey Everyone,

Thank you for all the support with the launch! The countless feedback we got from you in-game… all the steam reviews, and forum posts – really helps our small indie team with continuing development.

Now that the first 24 hours are behind us, we are starting to actively polish and add to the game. Bellow, I`m re-posting our roadmap for 2019. Also within 24 hours, we will enable a new Poll feature in the main menu – that will let our players vote on what projects and expansions we should prioritize.

Meanwhile, presenting a small yet very important Update 1.01. A much larger update 1.02 is coming up soon.

Fixed rare issue with the game not showing correct resolutions for the player to select
Fixed rare issue with the graphics looking really bad as it`s uses very low resolution
Fixed rare issue with the game not scaling the screen correctly
Potential major performance improvement on some laptop systems

Now onto the roadmap… Our plans are big. In a nutshell – release is not the end, but only the beginning. We want to do a lot more with MKW.

Please keep in mind that expansions are not in any order, as You will decide the order using the in-game Poll Feature.

  1. Cela a l’air graphiquement magnifique… mais la jouabiité opérationnelle semble plus questionnable. Cela donne un peu l’impression d’un micro-management à grands coups de souris dans tous les coins, ce qui fait peut-être la joie des hardcore-fanas de STR, mais laisse le commun des mortels plus circonspect.

    Ha oui, et puis un grand sourire pour le “Mode Zombie” !!!! ;-D
