"PC turn-based strategy fan's wet dream" Destructoid

"It appears to be a hugely elaborate strategy game with a headful of ideas and a heartful of confidence" Rock Paper Shotgun

Eador is a universe made of countless shards of land drifting in the Great Nothing. Each of the shards is a little world unto itself, with geography and denizens of its own. The power over the shards is bitterly contested by Masters, the immortal beings mortals believe to be gods.

Take the role of the mighty Master and shape the destiny of Eador! It is in your power to deliver the world from ultimate destruction – or to choke it with an iron fist of tyranny. Eador: Masters of the Broken World is a turn-based fantasy strategy game, where the decisions you make affect the world even deeper than the battles you win.

Key features:
  • Balanced fusion of grand strategy, turn-based tactics and RPG elements;
  • Boundless role-playing opportunities;
  • Massive selection of stratagems and ways to wage war;
  • An intriguing, non-linear story;
  • An original fantasy world, living a life of its own.

Excerpts from the game's F.A.Q.:

Which game genre it is?
Eador: Masters of the Broken World is a turn-based strategy in a fantasy setting. The game combines a lot of different elements from a whole bunch of games genres. There are tactical battles on a hexagonal battlefields and heroes traveling around the map, but also complex economical and political system and ”a grand strategy’ approach to the game campaign.

What is the meaning of ‘karma system’ in the game? By ‘karma’ in Eador we understand the complex alignment system, which evaluates the player’s actions from a moral point of view. See, in this game player have to face with moral dilemmas almost on every corner. The Masters aren’t simply a warlord, but also a leader of his empire with all kinds of responsibilities coming with. Player could ignore them, of course, but sometimes it’s wiser to cooperate with you mortal minions, because actually they are the ones who fight all Master’s wars for him. Bad karma generates when player chooses to sacrifice his people interests for a greater income or just because he’s enjoying the role of a badass:) Good karma generates when player acts as a caring monarch and fulfill the requests of the population… if only their needs aren’t initially evil;) Long story short: it is a complex role-playing system and you really should try it, if you want to know how it works.

How many playable races are in the game? Surprise: there are no such thing in the game as playable races! Instead of playing ‘the elves campaign’ or ‘the undead campaign’ in Eador: Masters of the Broken World the player going to ally himself with one of 8 different fantasy races and use it’s services in a time of war.

Why strategy games are such a big deal in the Eastern Europe? For some reason, Eastern Europeans really like strategy games. Especially the military ones, about conquering the world and suppressing the enemies. We don’t know for sure, but it seems that we’re big fans of the iron authority here and strategy games are the easiest (and usually safest) way to feel that kind of power in your own hands. Well, at least this is the one of the theories.

Thanks a lot to everyone for your feedback and support. We appreciate that greatly!

отдал свой голос за версию под линь. Вообще мне кажется это обманом-пишеться в greenlight, что игра выпущенна в том числе и для linux. Но на самом деле это обман. Написал разрабочикам steam, чтобы игру убрали из greenlight, дабы не вводить в заблуждение.

Now this was definitely worth the money.
And thanks for continuously updating the game, Snowbird Games!
