Kingdoms and Castles has a pretty decent free content update

Posted by , / 5680 views

Kingdoms and Castles [Steam, GOG, Official Site], the cute city-building sim from Lion Shield, LLC has a big free update. It sounds like the game will be much better off with it too.

In my initial thoughts article, I liked it. The problem was that it had a lack of everything, but this update solves some of that.

The developer had been planning a big "Merchants and Ports" update, but they felt like it had already reached a point worth releasing, so they did. This new update adds in new buildings including: Wooden Walls, Stone Roads, New Statue - Queen Barbara, Noria, Aqueduct, and Reservoir.

The ability to actually irrigate land should be extremely handy, considering how limited space often was for crops.

On top of that, they've also tweaked fire, so that only buildings with fireplaces can spontaneously catch fire. It makes sense, so you will see less random fires.

There's plenty of other fixes and improvements, including an update to the UI. See the release notes here.

The game always showed a lot of promise, it just lacked a bit of everything. With this update and hopefully more free content updates to come, it will get vastly more interesting to play.

Great. Need to fire up this one again as I've totally forgotten about it.

Meh! Not on GOG yet

I like this two:
- Ogres can now disembark their ships and attack even if your land is completely walled off
- Viking ships now have catapults

The video on steam made me laugh, it looked to me like the people were peeing on the fire to put it out.

Correction: No Linux version on GOG. I wonder what's the reason this time, since it doesn't have an online focus.

Sure that you have been on the correct store page?

As you can find on the store page:
Works on: Windows (7, 8, 10), Mac OS X (10.10+) and Linux (Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 16.04)

Also the download version for the game is similar for all three platforms: 105r1
Edit: It should be something with 106 e.g. v106 or 106r1

You are right, sorry. https://www.gog.com/game/kingdoms_castles
Guess I want to play Tooth and Tail too badly.
I also watched this awesome tournament at the time: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/175487851

That could be the problem: "Currently multiplayer is available only between GOG.com users. Crossplay version will follow shortly." Sounds like another GOG Galaxy <censored>!

Still no update on GOG

You could participate in a v106 Beta on GOG, but only with GOG Galaxy! *facepalm*
