Medieval Engineers

… a shame it was abandoned…

but don’t be fooled. I consider this game still the top game in my whole steam library.

Why? you might wonder….

this game is living on vividly in the mod community.

Theres hardly a hundred players still running it regularly but its state is better than ever before.

The online community is superb. All very passionate people who invest real time and skill in this wonder of a game.

credit where credit is due: big thanks to Deepflame, Peaceman, and modders like Equinox, Xaerthus , Onca, JohnBeere and many , many others, who are taking this game to unseen levels.

(New Edit, 2/17/2019)

I hadn’t played ME for months, after the last update broke the game into unplayability and I left in disgust, after having written the review below. But I had heard about the rail and water mods and so a few weeks ago I fired it back up to check it out.

Like my initial Steam review (below), the modders have done an amazing job. The new rail mod is intuitive, fun, immersive, and solves the main issue of planet, which is it’s unruly size.

The new water mod finally added what everyone has been asking for since the games inception, and which KEEN assured us they would never provide. Water. Like, you know, the prerequisite for life itself.

Truly a gem of a game. I’ve spend countless of hours in it without ever boring myself. The mods make this game very replayable.

Been playing a few days now and its getting more interesting each time i play, not found any major bugs or game breaking bugs, just one thing that might need changing is when you eventually get killed you gota start again, theres no load game screen once you die so you need to go through the start again creating a character, maybe on that screen you can put a load game , but apart from that its great.

Kingdom of Atham: Crown of the Champions

Kingdom of Atham: Crown of the Champions


KoA CotC short for “Kingdom of Atham: Crown of the Champions” is a PVE/PVP Fantasy Survival Game with many “RPG” aspects.

In the “KoA CotC” world you start your journey as a Champion; a divine mortal, sculpted by the great Elder, to quell the corruption that has enveloped the land and its inhabitants. Different champions, also sculpted by the elder, have the same goal. Be aware, some might be friendly, some might be foes, you all have the same goal but even the strongest Champions can succumb to the darkness. An array of combat options will be available to your champion from melee, ranged and magic. Choose your “Faction” with care! Factions reside in specific villages around the CotC world and belong to different “realms”. Be warned champion! Your actions in these realms will follow you and might effect your destiny.

Your aspiration, since arriving in this world, was to cleanse the darkness and vanquish those responsible for it….the Fallen. These divine guardians, once beloved and cherished by all of Atham, unearthed the Crown of the Champion; an ancient divine artifact that balances the light and the darkness in all living things.

The conflict between the guardians originated over control of the crown and lead to a split in their ranks. One that wanted to preserve Atham as is; the other that wanted to dominate it. As the battle between the adversaries raged it enveloped the known world. Giant shadows were observed on the horizon, the echoed sounds of shattered mountains reverberated through the realms and violent tremors reduced civilizations to rubble. The final engagement between the two factions lead to the shattering of the crown and the apocalyptic release of energy that reforged the Guardians into calous power mongers. Blinded to their original belief of maintaining balance amongst all things they transformed into tyrannical desbots. Their malice, brutality, and oppression altered the very nature of Atham.

The moment the Crown shattered every creature experienced and was changed by it. This was followed by 5 mysterious objects that fell from the heavens and impacted the world with such force that it created fissures across the realms. Following the “Sundering” despair invaded the hearts and minds of the people as an unnatural propagation of twisted creatures ravaged the lands searching for those remnants of the Crown. Inevitably this lead to a new conflict, the Divine War, and it has raged on for almost 400 years.

Your goal, Champion is to find the remnants of the Crown and restore balance to Atham. Build your fortress, find allies and save the realms. Crafting and fighting your way to honor and glory. The Darkness is your worst enemy; the Light … a lost friend.

We plan to add these features in the full release many are already existing in game.

-Building (make a small house, village or town).

-Complex Crafting (farming and fishing included).

-Towns with merchants and guards (Faction based).

-Party & Guild system.

-Impressive enemies of all kinds.

-Special companion to follow you around the world.

-Combat: melee, ranged, magical and underwater combat scenarios.

-Reputation aspect where your choice will impact your game play.

-Dedicated servers for rent to make your own rules and world.

-Three different races with bonuses to specific classes.

Mount & Blade

Mount & Blade

Mount & Blade is an immersive and difficult open-world medieval RPG.

There is not a game on Steam that provides more content for such a price except maybe Fallout New Vegas. This game is definitely equal to more than the sum of it’s parts. Though the character models, voice acting, interface, graphics textures and resolution leave something to be desired, this game supercedes all of that to provide an addictive, immersive experience.

In essence, the game provides a sandbox open world based on a medieval setting reminiscient of world history. You are allowed to engage in whichever pursuit you please, including as a bandit, merchant, sportsman, headhunter, general, mercenary, knight, and even politician.

I’ve been gaming for 30+ years and over that time I’ve played a lot of games. From my experience, Mount & Blade offers a unique gaming experience. Not quite like anything else I’ve ever played. There are some similarities to familiar games, such as shades of the Total War series, but stark enough differences that they really cannot be compared. Mount & Blade in my opinion is fairly easy to learn, but does take some skill with action type fighting to be mastered. If you enjoy strategy games with a turn based feel, mixed with real time combat, in a non-linear world; then Mount & Blade may just well be your cup of tea.

Life is Feudal: Your Own

Life is Feudal: Your Own

In one sentence: After three years this game is a spectacular monument to failure.

Played this game from the time it was first released as an early access game on steam up to the current date. Over this period I experienced first hand how it was evolving and where it was going. Played on public servers as well as on my own server. At times it replaced my real life which is sad to be honest.

I really liked this game because it had lot of potential. However it seems that after every update it became worse and worse. I was hoping the devs would first adress the issues of the game in order for every asset to be functional. I was reporting bugs, errors, malfunction and hoped that with the next update it would be fixed. But no. It never happened. Instead each update brought assets to the Clusterfuck and with that came more issues.

I absolutely love this game. I am on a non PVP server and we are usually close to full every evening. I was unsure about the game the first hour or so. I’m used to Rpg’s where you wander around killing stuff to level up and craft when you get tired of leveling. This game is completely different. It’s all about building and crafting. It’a about wandering around a beautiful country looking for the things you need to make food, tools, armor, houses, keeps, weapons…basically anything and everything.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord

Before you all read my review I want you to know I’m basing this review purely on the multiplayer aspect of this game as that has been my main way of having fun on the amazing Mount&Blade franchise over the last 10 years.

Be it on Warband, With Fire and Sword, Napoleonic Wars dlc, or many of the mods we saw over the years, it’s always been the multiplayer that kept me interested and gave me so many great moments.

Look I know what most people are thinking…

“But Walja, you have over 1.000 hours played on Mount&Blade 2: Bannerlord and still you don’t recommend it !?”

Real player with 1112.7 hrs in game

Most of the negative reviews for this game are people who bought it early on and saw how little this game progressed through the passing of months, positive ones are the ones with few hours, because I indeed agree, it feels like a new game completely, which is good (as there was already plenty of content for Warband through great mods).

However, what surprises me the most is that they say this game will be released June next year? (sourcing themselves: . How come? Game is far from finished and absolute snail’s pace of development will for granted not finish it in a few months, when this game has been going on for years and since they launched it on steam on early access prepurchase, they have mostly been doing minor fixes and balancing. No new features, quests or dialogues since I last played to this day

Project Imperium

Project Imperium

Project Imperium is an open-ended medieval sandbox. How will you survive and thrive? As serf or leige, smith, trade, farm, build, or conquer your way to fortune, glory, and a prospering medieval kingdom.

Venture forth from forest or town, collecting or earning resources and securing for yourself a lodging to call home. From there, improve your constructions, equipment, and weaponry - gradually building up your home from hovel to township, all the while fending off animals, brigands, blight, and starvation.

Invite starving and downtrodden vagabonds to settle within your burgeoning town, and raise them up, until they worship you as a lord. Or, rob people on the highways and live a life of banditry.

Maybe with time, you will find glory. Maybe you will settle a family on a distant farm. Maybe you’ll die of famine or plague. The future is up to you, how will you be remembered?

Be a serf

Survive each day in the harsh wilderness, or make your way through a disease ridden city hub while scraping enough gold together to pay rent to your lord. Shelter yourself from the weather and seasons, while through barter or scavenging secure enough food to make it through the day.

Be a lord

Construct houses, churches, taverns, and high walls. As you build yourself a more permanent lodging, and provided you’re reputation proceedes you, villages will slowly offer their services in labor in exchange for a warm meal and a safe bed. Your town will expand as more serfs work your farms, mines, and crafts shops - growing your towns economy into a regional power.

Be a Leige

As king or queen, it will be your job to rule. Keep your position on the throne secure, and ensure your subjects remain happy - or risk a violent upheaval.

Agriculture and Industry

A village needs food, arms, and manpower to survive. Serfs (and players) are able to maintain plots of farmland, tending to crops and ensuring a bountiful harvest can be sold. Animals will need rearing and tending, and the mines will also need to be worked. Several industries exist to support a town that all require serfs to maintain them - leather working, blacksmithing, mining, agriculture, animal husbandry, tailoring, etc.

Third person combat

Block and parry your opponents swings with sword or shield in melee combat, or lay them low via ranged combat from your sling, quiver, or bolt. Combat in Project Imperium is twitch based, and methodical.

Future features

  • Survival

  • Construction and crafting

  • Warfare

  • Melee and Ranged combat

  • Fighting on horseback

  • Economics, logistics, and trade

  • Kingdom level governance

  • Family units and Lineage
