Knights of War – A game by Vedran Drazeta

Knights of War is a turn-based strategy game set in medieval England. It was influenced by simillar games like Warlords, Shogun Total War and Heroes of Might and Magic. Player can choose between eight lords to play with, each having different bonuses. The main objective of the game is to capture all England’s provincies by defeating all of your enemies and therefore to unite all England under your rule. To do this, you will have to develop your economy, build structures, improve technologies, conduct diplomacy and raise strong armies. There are three AI types to choose for your computer opponents. Knight is the weakest AI type, warlord the strongest while lord is somewhere in between those two. There is also hotseat mode which allows two or more players to play on the same device by taking turns playing the game.

The game was developed in C++, using Win32 and DirectSound APIs, and compiled with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 development environment. Sounds and loops were made using Propellerhead Reason while graphics were made in Adobe Photoshop CS3. Game development took about 10 months, during the period August 2008 to July 2009. More than third of development time was spent on Artificial Intelligence engine. Making graphics also took Author quite a while because, as a programmer, he haven’t had much experience in this field and he had to do it all by himself. At the begining, the game was meant to be a variation of Risk game, but later it was upgraded with economy development and controlled combat.

    Downloaded this to give it a try when i saw your post. Its actually pretty fun and has lots of depth! However it has a lot of bugs too. territory colors get stuck and wont update, there is no button to go back to the buy and sell page (found a way around by saving the game), several random unexplainable crashes, certain maps wont load your troops up correctly, and finally it can get caught in a crash loop that makes it impossible to progress your game without starting a whole new one(yes, i closed game. loaded and reloaded tried making different moves before turn end, all resulted in a freeze on the npc’s turn that wont break and crashes the console)

    even with all the bugs its pretty fun though just needs a bit more work.

  2. Wow some bugs.. 😆

    For a one man project it’s not bad at all, plus i am pretty sure the author will make some revisions too in the future.. Get the new versions at the Author Site, the link to his website is in the download page.
