This indie strategy game is similar to chess as it is turn-based with amazing historical drawing on medieval people and the weapons they use. I would call this computer game a cross between a chess and card game which is unique!
With historically accurate weaponry and characters as well as subtle variables, this medieval game will keep you on your toes with the surprises and risks involved.
Each move you make has a consequence, and as a lord this may affect those that work and live on your land…
Treat the peasants kindly or even the most loyal will eventually revolt so treat your people well or dump them on a battlefield.
A strategy is needed on the battlefield – will you trap and starve out your enemy or will go full force attack or wait for the enemy to come to you…?
Rising Lords lets you, as a lord with peasants at your disposal can send them to fight your battles or let them work your lands and prosper from the crops, letting your knights do the fighting for you.
