Announcing the new Archon like game, Fatal Wars 2. Plans for the near and far future, and asking you what you think should be the price.

Posted by on

"Fatal Wars 2" is a game inspired by Archon. My current goal is to finish the "classic" mode with support for both local and on-line multiplayer.

"Classic" mode plays very similar to the original Archon. After reaching this goal, I intend to make pre-orders available.

The next goal(s) will be to do single player(computer AI), the "Renaissance" mode and maybe more modes with more than 2 players. In the "Renaissance" mode, units will have more than one ability and different abilities than in the "Classic" mode.

But... how this game actually plays? I suddenly realized not everyone are familiar with Archon.

The game has two parts. The strategy chess like board, with two opposing armies. In the board you move one unit a turn, much like in a chess game. However, once a unit goes on an enemy unit in the board, the enemy piece is not removed automatically. Instead, a battle screens opens and the two units battle out in action oriented manner(the second part). Either one of the pieces might be remove.

The Fatal Wars 2 board as of 2011.9.23

Now I would like to hear your opinions. And I will break the ice by asking a simple poll question.
What should be the preorder\alpha price?

1) Free
2) Pay What You Want
3) 1$
4) 6$
5) 12$
6) 20$
7) Other

Personally from those screenshots i would say free. I don't really pay alot for indie games anyway normally if i do want a indie game i wait till it's below 9$ish and it needs to keep me entertained for a little while :D.

Yea, the artwork is simple. And I might improve it later on. But I wish people would pay for games not based on artwork but rather based on value. I think this game might provide tons of fun gameplay. Maybe not as complex as some AAA open world RPG, but still it would be worth your money. If I pull it properly.
But maybe you are right and I shouldn't charge much or at all for this game. I would like to hear more...

I think it would be cool if you won, you would get in game money and with that you could buy different pieces each with there own stats
