Today we are taking a look at a game a friend put me onto and that is Manor Lords. This is a game that is being made by just one developer so that right there is pretty cool and impressive. Growing up in the UK, knights, castles and large battles in the woods and fields have always been something that has interested me and that is what we have on offer here in this very interesting looking strategy and city building game. The game is not finished as I write this, but I thought it would be fun to look at some of the features the game has to offer.
A Familiar Look
One of the smart decisions that the developer made about Manor Lords in my opinion was not to set the game in a specific place.
While you can certainly get little bits of England, Scotland, France, or whatever from the game. It is not actually based on one particular European area and that gave the developer a lot more freedom to play with the way that things looked and what was included in the game.
Building The Future
As someone who has loved city building games for years, the city building aspect of Manor Lords is something that I am very excited about. You have full freedom to build your city any way you want, but there are also tools to snap things into a place that make sense if you need a little bit of help. The growth of your town will greatly depend on the way that you as a player handle things. Starting from basic little huts to then building castles and having a road that offers trade and so on is something that is very appealing to me.
The battles in the game, even in the early state that I have seen look pretty awesome. I love how Manor Lords is aiming to give us these huge battles. There is a lot of strategy at play here, you cannot just send your men in… well you could, but I would wager things would not go well.
There are many things to think about, formations, the morae of your troops are they too tired and so on. There is way more depth here than you would think and trying to get your tactics right is going to be a bit of a trial-and-error kind of process, but that is something I have always found appealing with these types of games.
It is kind of blowing my mind that Manor Lords is being made by just one developer. The game looks like it is going to be a lot of fun for those that are into strategy and management-style games. The city building aspect of the game looks great and from what I understand there will be some accessibility options here for those that want an experience that is a bit easier.
- I love the setting for this game
- There are many different tactics you can employ for battles
- The city building aspect looks fantastic
- This is the kind of game that can take up a great deal of your time
- No word on when the game will be fully finished
- I do feel you have to be pretty big into strategy games to get the best out of this
