Siegecraft Commander

A warfare-oriented strategy created by Blowfish Studios, notable for the warmly-received Gunscape. Siegecraft Commander takes us to a fantasy universe, contested by Knights of Freemoi and Tribes of Lizardmen. The game offers a singleplayer campaign, allowing the player to control both factions. In this case, the game is similar to a traditional real-time strategy. For a change, the multiplayer mode allows choosing between real-time gameplay and a turn-based one. The encounters were inspired by tower defense genre, with the players taking over more and more territory until they clash. There is a catch – each tower has to have a direct link to the center, and if the chain is broken, every link ahead is destroyed. In order to win, every player has to build complicated installations, sustainable in case of sudden losses. Siegecraft Commander employs a light-hearted, unrealistic visual style.

Siegecraft Commander is a warfare-oriented strategy released for PC / Windows. The game was developed by Blowfish Studios, a team responsible for well-received Gunscape.

Plot

Siegecraft takes us to a fantasy universe, which is contested by two factions – swashbuckling Knights of Freemoi and ferocious Tribal Lizardmen. Developers incorporated a singleplayer campaign that allows players to lead both sides of the conflict, which are rather light-hearted, accordingly to the nature of the game.

Mechanics

Siegecraft Commander is a strategy game that incorporates both styles of the genre – real time, as well as turn-based. The singleplayer mode limits oneself to real-time, while multiplayer modes allow choosing between both gameplay styles. Gameplay mechanics had been inspired by tower defense genre, with the gameplay itself boiling down to encounters between both sides, with every side building their own stronghold. Inside, each participant builds fortifications and towers, necessary for building troops and shelling enemy structures.

During every match, we slowly expand our fortress, taking over more and more areas of the map, bringing us closer to enemy structures. However, each tower has to have a direct connection to the center – if the chain is broken, all remaining links are also destroyed. Such situation isn’t a rare occurrence – both sides have access to really powerful weaponry. This forces the players to create complicated networks of buildings, capable of enduring some losses.

Each level of the story campaign was created to be somewhat of a logical riddle, requiring spot-on solutions for the problems presented by the authors. On the other hand, multiplayer games are more nonchalant, offering a number of modes to choose from. Players wishing for some practice can host a game against AI-controlled opponents.
