Author File Description
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Style: Mix
Number of scenarios: 2


These are two stories set in the same land.

The first, "The Founding," follows a man whose name is Siegfried and who has lost his memory. He has a wife named Joan and a friend named Charles, but he remembers nothing else. But someone is out to get him.

"Fei Sun" takes place centuries later, but the capital has moved, the land turned into a desert. You follow the general Fei Sun on his quest to defeat rebels encroaching from the wasteland. But he has a secret that does not speak its name.


I did not make these scenarios.

They were made a year ago by a friend of mine (Dius Corvus, also a writer and poet). He agreed to let me submit them here, since he didn't want to. His interest, he said, was making a world come to life in this medium; he didn't care if nobody else played them.

I'm submitting these because I thought it would be a pity not to share them. They don't have the most intricate maps or the most epic gameplay, but I had never encountered the stories that they told. In my opinion, they're as much as a piece of art as cinema, except in this medium -- computer games, which impel the player to participate, breaking the "fourth wall."

The stories in these scenarios are dark. There is nothing explicitly R-rated, but people betray each other; unforgivable crimes are committed. There's much that goes unsaid, but that's not to say the stories are difficult to understand. They're simple, actually. They are also both, in a way, love stories -- which I think is unusual in this genre.

This is their first version, and Dius got rid of the bugs I ran into; that said, there might be others. I'll be happy to relay suggestions and fixes. (I wonder, though, if he'll come back to these two. I feel he has said what he wanted to say.) Hopefully others will enjoy these as much as I did.


- multidimensional characters

- compelling and unusual storylines

- a mix of gameplay (including build and destroy, rpg, fixed force, and cut-scenes)

- nearly 30 minutes of custom soundtrack

The game looks good.I've played the RPG part in the beginning and now I'm at the Build&destroy part. I'll probably review it when I'm done.

Your friend is definitely a talented designer. He would be welcome to our community ;)

This campaign is overall good. But bugs and glitches drag it down.

In the first scenario I killed all of the orange army and everything, but was unable to get the scenario to progress. Change diplomacy triggers are anyway tricky.

Second scenario I have no idea how I'm supposed to kill Grey's base, as he has a castle with siege weapons and walls and I only have one battering ram and no reinforcements.

Some nice ideas and good story/narrative and map design is excellent, but not very playable. I'd rate it at 4, at best.
