30€ + 20€ DLC for an early access game.

Important note: By buying this DLC, you are first and foremost showing your support for the development of Songs of Conquest and for us, the developers.

I thought that's what buying the game was for?

They are offering way more than what you are getting here.

I guess in this day and age this counts as a reasonable pricing (the base game, I mean). Still not buying until they stop shitposting and start delivering.

This treasure trove is filled to the brim with riches and trinkets in the form of cosmetic add-ons such as:
  • Unique main menu badge to show those philistines they’re being conquered by royalty
  • Wielder pets that accompany your first Wielder hero units on their adventures in every game
  • Two additional team colours: pink and dark. For those who wish to slay in style

20 euros down the drain. Meanwhile ATOM RPG's supporter pack costs 4 euros and contains the following:

This little addition for ATOM RPG is mainly aimed at those, who already own the game, but wish to support our indie studio a bit more nonetheless.

The full list of content is the following:
bullet_logo.png
Full original soundtrack with top quality remasters of in-game tracks;
bullet_logo.png
HD Wallpapers from the game;
bullet_logo.png
Unique camo suit, that changes the way the player character looks and adds to stealth;
bullet_logo.png
A terrific new NKVD agent's knife;
bullet_logo.png
New location "Crash site" where new items are found (You recently heard about an old helicopter crash site and decided to check it out);

Its like Homm3 with worse graphics. I did get sucked in and an hour blew by felt like a few minutes. I like the height advantage for archers on higher elevations a nice touch also has ZoC (zone of control) which is also cool.

Never really understood the love for Homm3 art, to me it was one of the least enjoyable parts of the game, it was functional at best. It did not seem all that creative and was sort of boring and bland and the items on the game map seemed to be laid out in a grid with straight lines. The unit designs bent toward being from a children's book and were cartoon like and sort of goofy. AoW and AoW Shadow Magic had much better art and art style IMO.


for all the angry Homm3 fanbois, here is a smaple of your homm3 art..WTF is so awesome about this? Looks like garbage honestly..its certainly nothing special, like a good 7th grader copying the original monster manual art..oh..look at tough guy in corner with horned helmet, so cool, so incline

I played only for few moments but it looks like it could be great. If you like HOMM, you probably will like this.
Few differences from HOMM:
1. You can freely move in battle and later attack (so shooters can move and shoot), but there is ZoC so moving away from melee hurts
2. There are ranges for shooters (they cant shoot accross full area), also there is double damage range (close range), considering that you can move this can make a difference
3. There isn't option to wait (I read waiting is skill of some troops)
4. Splitting stacks give you more essence (mana)

Looks pretty good,when is getting a full release ?

The early access blurb says release is within a year. it seems pretty polished to me. Even the map editor is functional. Whats strange to me is that they don't really list what features they want to add in early access? They just say that the game is pretty much complete and they want suggestions for stuff to add from the community.

Time for some old school homm multiplayer I guess

I know its too early to tell but what about things like story, plot and characters? Is there a single player campaign at all or just skirmish map against AI???

How did we create the world of Songs of Conquest?
We just released a new video showing more about the lore of our game and how it came to be. We have been working on the game for over five years and a lot people have worked on it. Making sure that every team member shares the same vision for the lore is very important to us. We have worked hard to create a coherent and believable world, which you will get to explore in just a few weeks!

LoL i played a bit and it is very sjws lol. Three missions in the human campaign and it is all about strong independent womxn and negros lol. It feels like all the main protagonists/antagonists and even mythical creatures are muh strong independent womxn.

This here is a prime example of what insecurity looks like.
The moment a woman appears on the screen in any function that is not just to please the eye, it's basically over.
Woman as protagonist? Woke.
Woman as antagonist? Woke.
Woman as "mythical creature"? Woke.
Black woman? Woke.
A handful of missions and it's not primarily about men doing something? How fucking dare they?! Woke.
A woman killing a man? Woke.
Sweden? Woke. (I mean, okay, I get this one)
Not enough booba? Woke.
A woman that is capable? Woke.
A man that is not capable? Woke.

It must be very tiring. Seeing the enemy in every shadow can't be good for your mental health.
I'd tell you to touch grass, but I'm afraid it might break you, as grass does come in female variants.

You know what is an actual problem?
No fucking rebinding of hotkeys. Devs are still doing the damn "hurrdurr, we don't know how to code a trigger/action separation" thing and it is infuriating.
Now that is something I could rage on about for hours on end...

Seriously guys? Who cares about that?
We haven't had a proper HOMM style game in years and main problem is that protagonist is a woman? Are you crazy?
They could be a purple alien with tentacles for all I care if the gameplay and combat is good. I don't even remember any of the story or characters from HoMM 2 and 3 but I do remember the good and fun gameplay.
