Hearthlands [PC] free Download
Hearthlands is a medieval/fantasy city-building real time strategy game in which you take a role of a king in a procedurally generated world. You can not control your subjects directly; instead you focus on city-building, resource management, diplomacy, heroes, magic and other things a typical king deals with on a daily basis.
The game is very flexible: you can build up a powerful realm and rule the lands with an iron grip, or establish a humble fishermen village. Or create a trading empire. Or found a small, but well-defended outpost or raider’s camp. Or become a host of a wizard’s manor. All characters, from a hauler to a hero have their own minds and behavior patterns. Sometimes it is interesting just to watch people scurry about minding their own business.
Hearthlands is like Civilization’s cunning six year old niece. You are the omnipotent creator of a (hopefully) soon to be great civilization who must eek out a living in a hostile environment while juggling the demands of your mewling masses and watchful neighbors. If you build the houses they will come (they being the poor plebeians…
I mean faithful villagers) and you get to collect tax money to fund your city. In order to grow your city you must meet the demands of your citizens to make your little log cabins “level up” to nicer dwellings which hold more people and produce more taxes.
Each successive level requires ever more complex items. All levels of items must be brought to the houses on a regular basis or the house down grades and you lose people and reputation. Higher level houses also create lore, fame and magic besides their increased taxes which can be used to buy permanent and useful upgrades, learn spells and make nice with the other nations. This system requires a well planned manufacturing sector and distribution network just like every other nation builder.
