Been following this one for a while now.  It gives me pretty strong Heroes of Might & Magic vibes.

Yeah, I've been keeping an eye on that as well.

A brief interview with the AI developer.  It's always nice when they take time to cover this topic.

Thought this was pretty cool.  The dev just released a "mix" of the game's soundtrack, along with an overview of one of the maps.  I'm definitely liking the music overall.

It's not the same genre' but I think the soundtrack to "Subnautica" is amazing.



Somewhere, somehow, I woke up in the wrong timeline. I'm pretty sure this isn't even my dimension.

Nice!  I've heard praise for SubNautica's music before, but have never listened to it until now.  Thanks for sharing, Steelie:)

Following a seemingly-ubiquitous trend from the past couple months, the devs are delaying the release of the full game in Q2 2022 as originally planned.  Instead, Songs of Conquest will now be launching into Early-Access during that same time period (sometime next spring)

It's the Pied Piper theme-song for gamers......

The devs talk a little bit more about the game going into Early Access next year... 







In addition, the video teases a few extra tidbits, including a preview/mock-up of siege battles.  I also have to say, I'm really digging the art style; it's honestly pretty impressive how good it looks especially considering the devs are going with the pixelated look.

Well damn, this looks a bit good doesn't it? Wishlisted instantly!

You know, I love Steam. It's packed with features no other storefront comes close to having, it does a lot of good for the PC market in general and especially alternative operating systems like Linux and Mac. But the one big failing is its recommendations algorithm. This game is right up my street, and it's never once been recommended to me.

Word of warning: producer is Coffee Stain, who have a track record of making games exclusive to Epic (although the developer's website insists release will be simultaneous on this occasion).
