Warlords & Samurais - demo
Warlords & Samurais is a single-player strategical campaign.
The gamestyle is quite similar to my previous campaign, Solders & Generals, but with better squad-controls and more features.
The demo contains three maps: a cinematic, the armory (read Gameplay for more info) and a playable battle.
A huge army docked in the east coast of Japan.
No one knows who they are, but one thing is sure: they came with harmful purposes.
They already raided Chiba and Funabashi and they are heading to Edo. The Emperor ordered the Shogun (Asikaga Yoshiharu) to come to Edo and protect him.
The Shogun ordered his son (Asikaga Hanabusa) to stay in their town (Odawara).
However, Asikaga Hanabusa will get into the war too when a company of invaders are attack the town. Thats how the story starts.
The campaign has a unique gameplay. In each battle you control your army through the direction of your Warlord. Instead of directly controlling individual soldiers, you use the Warlord to give out simple orders to companies of samurais. This allows you to easily control large numbers of troops.
Armory: at the armory you can upgrade your troops. You will get money after each battle, and you can spend it on upgrading, customizing your troops and your hero. Currently only a few upgrades are available, but of course, there will be more in the final version.
Make your own decisions: at some points of the campaign you will have to choose how will you react to a situation, which will effect the ending of the campaign.Screenshots
