Official Website: www.fantasykommander.com

Introduction
Do you remember SSI (Strategic Simulation Inc.) and its great games?

If the answer is yes, you can't miss this game because everything in it reminds of the incredible gaming experience that SSI created in its titles.
Great turn-based strategy and RPG games such as Panzer General, Fantasy General or Pool of Radiance inspired and guided us in the development of our project. However, with “Fantasy Kommander - Eukarion Wars” we've tried to do better than our masters, adding depth to the gameplay, to the story and the setting for this genre.

If you're not familiar with SSI, but you're looking for a strategy game with an elaborated battle system, a deep storyline, and a huge setting, you probably don't want to miss this game too.


The Game
Basically, “Fantasy Kommander - Eukarion Wars” is a turn-based strategy game with rpg elements, but it can also be defined as a “Fantasy Wargame” or an “Advanced Computer Boardgame”.

The gameplay is based on a traditional hex map, with a wide variety of terrains and units available. Most of your interactions with the game will be through the mouse. You will select, move, fight, and analyze units on the Battlefield or in the HeadQuarter (HQ) using a simple point-and-click system.

Fantasy Kommander - Eukarion Wars is an operational-level game: units approximate squads, with most of them consisting of about a hundred soldiers, though some (e.g. heroes, dragons) represent single entities. Every unit is like a rpg character with its own characteristics and special abilities that you can increase as soon as they level up.

The Battle System is very detailed and is based on several Combat Tables, which take into account, among others:
  • the strength ratio between the Attacker and Defender
  • the state of health and morale of the units
  • the terrain and many other tactical factors

An important factor during a battle, is the orientation of the units: attacking the enemy on the flank rather than the front can make the difference between victory and defeat.
For all these reasons, and many other that you will discover in the game, maneuver your army carefully, and keep in mind that in order to become a great Kommander you must be able to take the right decision at the right time.

The game features single player campaigns following a intricate plot (see “The Story”) as well as multiplayer battles with varying objectives and several game modes. In these multiplayer challenges, the player can decide to take part in quick battles using ready-to-fight armies, or battles preceded by management phase where they have to strategically plan their army taking into account varying financial resources.


Main Features
  • Turn-based strategy/RPG game
  • An elaborate and detailed Battle System that considers the strength ratio between the Attacker and Defender, the state of health and morale of the units, the terrain and many other tactical factors
  • A deep and involving Storyline set in a world inspired by the European Middle Age and enriched by the Fantasy narrative tradition
  • 4 Single Player Camapaigns with 25 Epic Battles, 3 Heroes, Powerful Enemy Generals, and multiple Side Quests
  • Over 70 different Units to enroll, upgrade and unleash in Battle
  • Every Unit is like a Rpg charater with many stats and abilities that you can manage and upgrade
  • Incredible spells
  • Hordes of Enemies
  • Multiplayer Battles with different gameplay modes and objectives.
  • Hours and Hours of pure Strategy and Rpg fun!

The Story
The plot develops during the single player campaigns, on and off the battlefields. There are 4 campaigns available, three of them take place in the great Empire of Adamantia, invaded by the forces of Kaos, and one in mysterious and unknown lands.
Players play a Kommander at the beginning of their military career, thrown into a titanic battle that is devastating the entire continent of Eukarion. Successive events, dialogues, and plot twists are carried on through the messages that Emperor Karl and the Great Council of Mages send to the young general who will have to find out, fighting hard battles, the final objective of the Abyss.
Players won't be alone in facing this incredible war adventure. Three great Heroes of Humans, Elves, and Dwarves, will follow and assist them in their trials, challenges, victories and defeats.
The game has been fully voiced in English and it's been conceived to give emphasis to the characters, friends and foes, that players will face on their adventure.


The Setting
We put a lot of care in the development of the setting, creating a huge fantasy version of Medieval Europe. Empires, kingdoms, history and aesthetic on the map that you can see down here are the result of studies and researches aiming at a coherent fusion between reality and fantasy, following the great tradition of European epic and fantasy literature. “Fantasy Kommander: Eukarion Wars” shows how Medieval Europe could have been if Orcs, Magic, Dragons, and demons of the deep abyss were real.

If you want to know more about the way the lead designer of FK-EW designed the history of the Eukarion Continent, have a look at this entry in our Dev Diary. (www.ageofgames.net/under-development/fantasy-kommander-wars.html)

The Multiplayer System
Players can engage in several types of 1-to-1 online challenges:
  • Scenario
    Relive heroic battles that made the History of the Eukarion continent. Each player has a fixed role in the battle: the units can be already placed and some very specific tasks have to be completed.
  • Short campaign
    Challenge your adversary in a sequence of consecutive maps.
  • Skirmish
    Select the map and place the units the way you want. Each map has a fixed group of units for each faction.
  • Headquarters
    Both players start in the Headquarters, with a fixed amount of money. They can then manage these resources to build and upgrade their own army to take in battle.

We did not use Kickstarter becasue we're not base in USA or UK. When we did the crowdfunding campaign you had to be based there in order to use Kickstarter.

Anyway, thanks for your desire to support us ;)

Unfortunately no preorders right now, simply the release 15th of October.

See you on the battlefield, Kommander!

Do you open any preorder bonus/discount for the game?
I may like to get it and hope that can get some bonus from it.
Diehardsam Oct 4, 2013 @ 6:29pm

Too bad last time you not do it in kickstarter but in www.indiegogo.com/projects/fantasy-kommander-eukarion-wars‎

Hi Diehardsam

Our publihser, slitherine, is probably the best publisher for computer wargames, but it's a niche publisher and so it has its own particular distribution strategies.

Maybe we'll be on steam in the next future, but this is not an our decision.

The Beta is out and selected betatesters are playing it.

It was not an open Beta and so probably you subscribed too late.

Anyway the game will be released in the coming weeks (11 days from now) so you'll have a chance to play it very soon! ;)
