Besiege is a simulation puzzle game for Linux, Mac and Windows PC, where the player takes on war machines that appear to be like something out of a history book. The game is a physics puzzler building game in which you construct medieval siege engines and lay waste to immense fortresses and peaceful hamlets. Piecing together pistons, hinges, blades, bombs, saws, spikes, cannons, wheels, wings, and other bits into death machines able to annihilate armies, crush castles, and conquer kingdoms. Taking your behemoth over ground or to the skies, causing carnage in fully destructible environment.
Ultimately, you must conquer every Kingdom by crippling their castles and killing their men and livestock in as creative or clinical manner as possible. The examples in this trailer where a machine going terribly wrong still manages to complete its objective.
- Physics based building – if your machine can’t take the strain, it will buckle and splinter apart.
- A broad array of building blocks to construct towering, ridiculous machines – or go for ruthless efficiency. Utilise flamethrowers, hinges, blades, pistons and much more.
- Puzzle-centric campaign levels encouraging experimentation. Blaze your way through kingdom after kingdom planting red flags as you go. Eventually, each isle will be conquered.
- Fully Destructible/flammable environments, with outposts, castles, farms and livestock to crush and combust (in slowmotion, too).
- Hazards such as fire can either be your worst enemy or your greatest asset. It spreads in a deadly manner.
- A sandbox level to test your machines and generally wreak havoc.
The best part, you can buy the alpha now, which currently has 15 levels and a sandbox mode, for $6.99 (£4.60). Then lay siege on Steam Greenlight. Should it breach the barrier, developers Spiderling Games plan to add Steam Workshop support to share siege engines.
