Kingdoms and Castles is a medieval fantasy city-builder that's getting closer to a colossal-sized update, and now you can try the Alpha version with AI factions.
Currently, the game is just you building up a big castle and seeing how long you can hold out. Over time it has expanded with new options to build and new threats but now the AI Kingdoms update is coming. As the title suggests, it gives you the ability to (it's optional) add in AI enemies who will build their own cities. This makes the game far more like a traditional RTS, although with a little more depth to the building systems.
To get access to the alpha you need to enter the code "alphatester123" on the Steam Beta options for the game. There's a lot they still need to add and tweak but here's some of what to expect added in (either available now or later):
- AI Kingdoms
- Kingdom colour selection
- Transport Carts
- Siege Workshop + Catapults
- Sea Gates
- A new visibility system (so you don't just see your rivals)
That's just a quick highlight, there's lots more big and small coming to it and most of it you can try in the Alpha.
