Imagine 4X meets RTS. Autumn Dynasty Warlords combines empire management, diplomacy, strategic research and hand drawn real-time battles in an epic quest to unite the Autumn lands! Can you outfox your rivals and become the First Autumn Emperor?

The Game
Revered, feared and enigmatic. The First Autumn Emperor’s legacy is undisputed. He began as a nondescript warlord, yet he would one day unify the country and repel the greatest barbarian invasion in history. His personage is a mystery, but his exploits are legendary. Placed in his shoes, could you have done a better job than he?

Manage your empire turn by turn: construct buildings, manage cities, gain officers, raise armies and engage in diplomacy or espionage. Emerge victorious in a series of real-time battles by cleverly drawing the paths that your soldiers will take.
Unify the lands and form the Autumn Empire by conquering all provinces!

Beautifully rendered maps and buildings akin to Chinese hand painted hanging scrolls.

Long, involving and complex, it’s a must for strategy buffs.

Warlords is definitely worth checking out.
N4G Rating - 8.2/10
Metacritic Score - 80
Autumn Dynasty Warlords’ RTS path-drawing system had its humble origins in a project that won the IGF China Best Student Award, which then underwent 2 years of further development. Most of us are strategy gamers and greatly appreciate the convenience of the PC’s keyboard shortcuts, especially when playing RTS games (we’re great fans of Company of Heroes, Civilization, Dota and Starcraft just to name a few). It is with this in mind that we are hoping to get the game available on Steam.

No kidding. I have played this game since it's release on ios, and it is my favorite ios game. I just wish they would fix some stuff and finish the game. What I would really want is AD 3, but it looks like that might never happen. The dev team fell off the face of the planet.
