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!

New online multiplayer feature!

Feature

I'm looking for some people to duel me in our brand new online multiplayer mode in order to make sure the feature gets polished and ready for prime time. I'm providing invitation to 10 people to join in as testers.

Requirements:

- drop by our Discord server and tag yourself as a tester, here's an invitation Discord.gg

- have a modern browser, ideally recent version of Google Chrome

- will point you to where to create your account (no need for email validation at this stage)

- have about 30-45 minutes of free time for when we decide to duel

We're pretty close to releasing a new major version.

Hope to see you around Discord soon! Discord.gg

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.
