    Ideally it ought to have chicks with alabaster skin and ebony hair, lithe of body with lissome limbs and all that. It is based on an REH work, after all.

    A tower defense game is considered RTS now?
    Poor Conan can't catch a break lately.:negative:

    Describing games as They Are Billions as simple tower defence games is rather stupid. It is true that the game is about defending but it is so much deeper and more interesting than this mobile tower defence genre. It’s like comparing fallout 1/2 to turn based mobile RPG’s.

    Well, the tower defense is to RTS what HOG is to point and click adventure, and hiking sims to RPGs.

    The highly anticipated Next-Gen (tm).

    As long you can crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women this game can still be good.

    You mean Exiles? They're still trying to ape ARK and the community is largely ERP fags.

    You are building tower defence in this game. Literally opposite.

    Depends on the order of things. If the enemies are attacking because you stole their women, then it might still work out.

    So... Stronghold: Conan + extras?
    Sure, why not.

    I especially like the co-op aspect. Sounds like you can have one player take care of the base, while another maybe just controls a hero and some units. Can anyone confirm? bylam ?
    Might be a way to get my GF to play some RTS with me. I got her to play something like Stellaris, but anything faster than that would hopelessly overchallenge her.

    Well, it does look more promising than the lukewarm Grey Goo at this stage. But I'm still more keen on their C&C remasters.

    Jesus Christ up in the heavens, this actually looks like a proper RTS game. In 2019? What is this madness?

    I'm pretty skeptic. It's probably more of They are Billions than Stronghold. Also, no mention of PVP just, co-op MP.

    Looks a bit cartoony as well, the attack animations are a bit more Warcraft than Conan as well. Isn't Conan meant to be brutal, bloody, Snakes, Thulsa Doom, crushing your enemies, see them driven before you, and all that.

    After watching the video I gone from meh "yet another RTS clone", I was expecting yet another PvP focused game with very meh single player content and after watching the video, I actually got interested, if they add mod support, it might be pretty fun, especially with co-op. I think there is a pretty good audience for a good single player focused rts, I think the traditional pvp ultra competitive style rts has a serious problem to keep audience as competition on multiplayer games pretty much exploded, this is especially true for modest budget projects like this.

    I just realised how close "Conan Unconquered" sounds to "Command and Conquer"... :neveraskedforthis:

    Anyway, game looks disgusting and it will be shit. Have fun with your tower defence.

    It does not.

    Also, that's what everyone said about Grey Goo back when it was announced.

    He was no defensive fighter; even in the teeth of overwhelming odds he always carried the war to the enemy.

    Why not a HoMM style game where you recruit a squad which turns into a mercenary company which turns into an army. Your adventuring buddies now leitenants and shit. Maintain morale with qt distribution and gold.

    Rape and plunder. Betrayal. Single combat. Dungeons. Thief episodes. No leveling up or stats editing. Only upgrade the force of your squad/company/army as your fortune/favour increases. Exceptional characters with own agendas that can raise their own squads/etc with the possibility of working for them, them working for you or battle. Rise and fall empires or watch the rise and fall, questing on outskirts of civilization. Extremely powerful game changing items whispered in legend and coveted by all. Let an NPC reover one and ambush him after. Recover one and have it stolen from you in a tavern by living shadows sending you off into another adventure with its own twists and turns.
    Something like this is how i imagine a conan game.

    The premise is different. You kinda know what you expect since it's zombies and They Are Billions does it well - It's a RTS turtle wet dream basically... but Conan? I'm expecting to roam and destroy with my army, instead of sitting and waiting for low life bandits to attack my walls. Still, I welcome all RTS games.

    Petroglyph are getting funky with it again, not like anything worthwhile came out of it the last time, but at least they are trying I guess.
