How does multiplayer work?
I can't find any info online about how multiplayer works! Not a youtube video, none of the reviews have info, the game doesn't really have info. And there is no public match making and nobody I know has the game so I can't just hop into a random game and try it.

So what is it exactly? It says co-op, so what, does each player control a faction? How could you have more than 2 players then? How does it work?

I'd say it's almost 100% like singleplayer, it's like you're both playing but on the same map, you both get 9 actions at the beginning of the first turn and you control both factions, it helps with you guys making way more actions in a turn than you'd otherwise in singleplayer, which brings ease to higher difficulties but at the same time makes it easier to disrupt the balance when you guys are screwing each other, and you share the same resource.

I only played a little with someone else so far (20 turns, 2 player) but from what I saw it's what Shu-Woon said: Each player gets their own allotment of actions (9 setup +3/turn) but otherwise use the same board, same resources, are even taking their turns at the same time. Because the land only grows so much per turn, you'll either have to expand the continent manually or suffer from major amounts of clutter, and it's quite possible to run into conflicting plans for the resources available.

I haven't looked at it yet, but there was a guide in Steam labeled something about PvP rules - Playing to Lose. Sounds like a way to play competatively if you really wanted to using this game.

I may edit this later once I've got more than two short sessions under my paws.

I cannot get a multiplayer game started to save my life.
I created my own network and my friend joined (who also bought the game)
He tried connecting to my local IP which was a no go and even tried searching the LAN connection for games, which came up empty.
Why advertise this as a cross-platform co-op multiplayer game when a PC and a Mac can't even play together?
Yeah, I have a Mac and he has a PC.

Maybe you should open ports? Playing on LAN is useless if you are not on LAN together...

we were both connected to the same lan with open ports

That was over a year ago? Are you still having this issue?
『Shiro』 Jul 14 @ 7:32pm 
haven't played it since, sorry I'll stop posting.

You don't have to apologize. I'm sorry this got missed a year ago. If you want to try to get this figured out, let me know.
