I'd need to see more before playing, but so far I'm very interested

If my game won't start, I'm sure it would do wonders if you blew upon my cartridge.

The instruction manual is in progress, and I wanted to share a sample. I have been hesitant to give out any official release date, but I can tell you that the end is in sight. At the very least, there will be a demo by the end of the year - maybe sooner. If you PM me with your email, I will add you to a list that gets contacted at the time of demo release, cartridge release, etc.

I now have a development blog.  I'm hoping to add some sort of content weekly - if I have nothing new to talk about, I will add old stuff, which might be scans from when I was designing parts of the game on paper.  I used to go nuts over the Nintendo Power articles that had to do with game development, so maybe you'll find this to be cool.

The latest entries in the blog feature a preliminary sketch for the box artwork, and an interview from pixlbit.com.

So I finally played it, I see it is demo still, basically I see the island you are on, and have to manage the amount of gold, but where the blazes do I get stables for my Oxes, only the Knights and etc has stables, but no Ox stables.

I have a room full of know it alls, but no Ox stables.

Of course I guess no women either since we have a village full of able ready little people, ready to wage war.

.........................

I really like stratergy games and all, but if I do not see any action, I can go right to sleep.

I see your game has action sequences, one of the small reasons why I had  a love for strategy games. In terms of the back and forth between battles, reminds me of "Armed and Dangerous", and the wall battles.

Idk, maybe an  "current warfare" themed game would also be nice, or even reinactments, with funny graphics and some cartoonish antics, involved. So far this has the ability of doing what Kemco

Alot of programming must have went into the stats and on screen move setup, I am thinking about how those connect together.


Maybe this could work like KOEI games, if you are familiar with them. They have a whole slew of strat games, from the early DOS PC era, and make games on dying current gen systems.

When I am a bit more sane, I will check it out.

Geocities also have free website, yes that good ole Geocities, I am talking about, so you can use that as a resource, but they do not want any hanky panky.

Hi, I'm glad you tried it out.  I highly recommend looking at the tutorials if you want to find out something about the game.  To answer your question about the stables... the stable holds both horses and ox.  After you build one, you can get them through the Ox Breeding Upgrade on the upgrade screen.  Finally, in the demo version, you will not be attacked by an enemy, except when you press the Start button.  That will automatically begin an attack (you will need to have troops ready to fight though, or it's game over).

I have a new demo now available on my blog.  In this demo, you'll get a look at the new resource collection, new battle casualty scene, new music on transition screens that didn't have music before, and the new building found in the game.  My blog has been getting updated about every week or so.  As always, please send me your email if you'd like notification when the cartridge is released.  Thanks!

I checked out your Dev blog.  You're picture of the IDE, editor your use (Context) was pretty cool.  You have your code well organized.

Thanks!  I liked how that post turned out.  I've been showing developments of the game, but I would definitely like to add more content to the blog about code and those old designs I scribbled on paper (if you've seen the "Design Scans" page on the blog).

While, I'm posting, I have this announcement to add:
Limited Edition will be released in May!  Check out my blog for details.  Contact me (easiest way is to use my blog's contact form) if you want notification when the release is here!

Armed For Battle will be at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo happening next weekend!

At the Infinite NES Lives booth, you can come see and demo the game.  You'll also be able to save on shipping AND get an additional $5 off with the coupon at my blog.

I'm very excited to be in attendance this year at the show!
