Ancient Beast is a turn based strategy indie game project, played online against other people, featuring a wide variety of items and creatures to acquire and put to good use in order to defeat your opponents. Ancient Beast is free, open source and developed by Freezing Moon (and community). It uses technologies such as HTML, PHP, and JavaScript, so it is playable from any modern browser without the need of plugins. This project was carefully designed to be easy to learn, fun to play and hard to master. We hope you'll enjoy it!

I'm looking for a couple of testers, especially youtubers who upload gameplay videos on a constant basis. This game is most appealing to players who love turn based strategy games (chess, Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Disciples 2), trading card games (Magic: The Gathering, HeartStone, Scrolls.com), etc (Pokemon, Digimon and X-Men fans).

Anyway, bottom line is that you don't have to be one of them as long as you're open minded and willing to give this a go. A match versus a beginner takes about 30-45 minutes with the default settings, but if you want a way shorter video, that's doable, so no worries.

The game doesn't have online multiplayer for now, but I'm using desktop sharing software TeamViewer.com and I'm hosting a development version of the game, while voice chatting with you over Skype or GTalk and recording the match for YouTube.

Let me know in the comments if you're up for it and please do link to your Youtube account as well if you have one. My Skype handle is dk.vali and my GTalk is dk.vali@gmail.com

See AncientBeast.com or Gamejolt.com

Big thanks! I haven't actually played HoMM2, but I'm a big HoMM3 fan. I do think HoMM2 has awesome graphical style, Ancient Beast will hopefully have a pixel sprite art pack as well eventually to resemble the old-school style even more for those who prefer that better.

The game is becoming more and more playable and even if it doesn't have online multiplayer for now being just hotseat, it can be played just fine using desktop sharing software such as Teamviewer.com or maybe even Samesurf.com
I want to gather more people who I can play Ancient Beast with and figure out more bugs and issues.
Also I want to record a gameplay video for 0.2 against a player that's rather challenging.
If you're interested in playing against me or maybe others, feel free to reply with your skype username in this thread.

My skype is dk.vali
so add me up ^^
