Castle Story

Castle Story is an RTS featuring a complex economical aspect and with the option of transforming in-game surroundings, built from voxels. It is the debut project of an independent developer, Sauropod, and its production has been backed up by Kickstarter. Castle Story takes the players to a world consisting of several islands floating in the air. The core of the gameplay is designing and building a stronghold, which we later defend against invaders. Players must carefully manage their settlers, who – depending on our needs – can become miners, woodcutters, or builders. Castle Story is powered by the popular Unity Engine. Its vivid, three-dimensional visuals are made entirely of cubic blocks (voxels), similarly to the famous Minecraft.

Castle Story for PC / Windows is an RTS game which combines elements of military-economic strategy games such as the Stronghold series and dynamic voxel world reminiscent of Minecraft. This is the debut game of the Canadian independent production studios, Sauropod.

Gameplay

The action of Castle Story is set in a world of islands floating in the sky. The game is powered by an engine that uses voxels and provides fully dynamic deformation of the area. This allows you to cut down trees, drill tunnels, or dig pits at will. The main part of the game is building castles and then defending them from invaders. The player is, however, only commanding and therefore must rely on his orders obedient settlers. Thanks to them, the player can explore new areas, gather resources, and build structures.

All fortresses have to be designed by hand. The player has to place every brick manually. This creates a three-dimensional architectural plan which then our subordinates make happen. Of course, before this happens, it is necessary to collect required materials. For this purpose, the settlers are used as miners.

The mechanics governing construction work are very complex. Our subordinates are able to climb only on low altitude obstacles, and the speed of their movement is affected by weight carried by them, therefore the key to success is to ensure that the settlers can reach every construction element, so that the construction is carried out without unnecessary delays. This goal is achieved by putting the stone stairs and bridges. After some time, the enemy enters the level and starts to besiege the player’s fortress.

Technology

Castle Story for PC / Windows is powered by the Unity engine, and all the areas are created with voxels. This gives the game a specific charm and makes it look like it is made of Lego blocks. The advantage of this solution is the ability to use advanced physics system, which is also responsible for the possibility of land and buildings destruction.
