Description

Warsim is another random and addictive game from the same developer as The waste. This time, rather than being an rpg, the game is (as you might imagine, a stratogy or simulation of war. Become ruler of the kingdom of Aslona, a tiny empire surrounded by enemies, with a rebellion on the point of overthrowing your government, bandits pillaging at will and goblin clans hungrily eying up your populous. How you deal with these various problems and expand your kingdom is up to you.

You might bet gold in the arena in death defying combat, recruiting personal champions and earning massive amounts of cash which you could use to hire mercenaries to protect your kingdom. Alternatively, feel free to legalize slavery and buy in large forces of slave soldiers, break in to your own kingdom's bank, or take over the rebels lands or just buckel down and simply work on expanding your troop count and buying defensive upgrades.

Defences are certainly something you'll need, since as well as rebels and bandits, there are a variety of surrounding independent kingdoms from a huge number of randomly generated races from ogres to dwarves, lizardmen and gremlins, some of whom are eager to expand into your teretory. On the other hand, you can always play diplomat, and ally with one set of kingdoms against another.


With a staggering amount of things to do, from taxing your people or seeing petitioners in your thrown room to exploring the realm, a huge quantity of randomly generated content (especially in terms of races and eventes), you can guarantee that this will be a long war.


As with The Wastes, Warsim is played as a menu driven game resembling an old Dos style console rpg where you press numbers to make choices, for example 1 to attack the rebels, 2 to attack bandits etc, (though unlike most Dos games it's fully compatible with all versions of Windows). The developer has included similar options to reduce ascii text for those using screen readers as in his previous game (just go to the options menu with 3 and use the disable ascii option), then use your favourite screen reader to read the window.


The final free version of the game can be downloaded from the above link, however the game has since become successful enough to go commercial. new expantions in the commercial version not only add more randomness for the game to generate content but also an ever increasing world to explore with it's own history full of demon gates, magic wells and gangs of slavers, send knights on quests for magical artifacts, learn the history of the region or gather extra sources of income for your kingdom through taking over mines or fighting pits. complex as the demo version is, the commercial version adds a massive amount more to the game (including all new music), and at just four pounds, which is roughly 7 Us dollars or five euros, if you really want the experience of being a king this is certainly a must have. The commercial version also extremely regular updates which add yet more new encounters, races, factions and other complexities to the game, often born from player suggestions.


You can buy the commercial version here on the indiependent gaming website Itch.io, or for those who prefer to tangle with the Steam client and it's inaccessible interface you can Find the steam version here
