In the year 1346, the known world was struck by a calamity know as Black Death. By the end of the 14th century 95% of population perished due to disease, famine, and religious persecution. Self-proclaimed divine crusades purged the land of those deemed to be responsible for the end of days, sowing seeds of doubt in the minds of those that remained. Most major cities were razed to the ground.
Groups of survivors slowly emerged from society’s ashes, migrating and re-settling areas reclaimed by nature. You get to guide such a group, and protect them from outlaws, barbarians, and religious fanatics in a classless, borderless, lawless post-calamity age.

It is our obligation to present as many meaningful mechanics as possible for you to feel like a real medieval lord, so Going Medieval will be first launched with a functional set of rules and features. The rules, features, options, and technology trees will evolve according to player feedback and community suggestions.
Hello future Medieval Lords,
As the most effort went into terrain creation, that's what this development post is all about. Also, that’s where the biggest changes will be seen.
The 16 unit height and 250x250 unit width map is generated by an unlimited number of randomly placed terrain brushmaps that determine its type, shape, color, and gradient. These generated terrains are randomly connected with slopes, which means that some of the terrains can, at first, be too high and/or inaccessible to players, but players can always accommodate them through the creative building, in order to reach the desired level.
Terrains that can spawn randomly on a map are:
And more will come later.
Brushmaps are also used to place props like trees, rocks, plants, etc., and the total number of those units can’t be higher than what is predetermined when the map is generated.
In the future, we plan to develop a whole flora system that will make it possible for some of the units to regenerate independently of map generation (eg. trees) when they are used as building resources.
We have lots more interesting stuff in work, and we’ll make another announcement later on. Also, feel free to join our Discord: Discord.gg.
Until next time,
