Rising Lords is an ambitious Medieval turn-based strategy game, due to be released in 2019 for Windows and possibly Linux. Thanks to Cologne-based development studio Argonwood, we have some solid feedback.
“The game is being developed in GameMaker Studio.
No confirmed platforms except Windows just yet but the developers haven’t ruled out a Linux version.”
So this reply comes third-party in reply from developer Argonwood. But the GameMaker Studio engine support puts some solid hope into the mix. And being that the release is a ways off yet. There could be a day-one release in the mix.
Rising Lords is a simultaneous turn-based strategy with card and board game elements. Since players will send your serfs to fight and die in your name. Or let them prosper and use them to your advantage.
With a robust multiplayer component to boot, Rising Lords invites players to experience the psychology of war – getting into the minds of their enemies, and making their friends pay for questioning their right to rule!
Up to four players will be able to play simultaneously, with no need to wait for each individual to take their turn. Just check out the teaser trailer.

Plus, the game will come with a sizeable single-player campaign mode. Along with detailed customisation options and subtle variables. Since the tide turns quickly when at war.
Rising Lords will release for Windows via Steam next year. While players can already wishlist the game on Steam to show that Tux Love. And also ensure they receive updates on the game’s progress.
