Demise of Nations: Rome – in the Works!

Filed under: Announcement,Business,Development — Travis @ 14:48

After throwing around a few ideas internally last year, Noble Master Games have decided to develop a hexagon turn-based strategy game.  It will take place during the Roman Era on a large map of Europe featuring many factions from that time. The game will include several single player scenarios and campaigns. Demise of Nations: Rome will support a wide array of operating systems including PC, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. The game is planned to be released later this year in 2013.

Demise of Nations: Factions

Demise of Nations: Factions

Demise of Nations: Rome will contain over 30 factions, each having their own uniquely created banner to distinguish them from each other, much like the ones shown above. Confirmed factions include, Armenia, Britannia, Carthage, Dacia, Egypt, Gaul, Germania, Greek Cities, House of Brutii, House of Julii, House of Scipii, Macedon, Numidia, Parthia, Pontus, Rebels, Scythia, Seleucid Empire, Senate SPQR, Spain, and Thrace.

In later era scenarios and campaigns, other factions will appear, Alemanni, Berbers, Bergundii, Celts, Eastern Roman Empire, Franks, Goths, Huns, Lombardi, Roxolani, Sarmatians, Sassanids, Saxons, Slavs, Vandals, and Western Roman Empire. Below is an early alpha screenshot of the game.

May of Conquest – It’s Here!

Filed under: Announcement,Business — Tags: , , , — Travis @ 14:06

Age of Conquest is a Risk-like turn-based strategy game with players from all over the world. Playable on maps such as Europe, Asia, the Americas, the World, fantasy maps and many more! The game is available for all major operating systems including Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Android and iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad).

Age of Conquest started 11 years ago on May 17, 2001 and has come a long way since. To celebrate the anniversary, May of Conquest was created which is a series of tournaments allowing players to compete for various prizes. The tournaments will be starting April 29, and before long we will announce the 34 happy winners! Let’s look at some last minute statistics…

Most amount of players in one tournament: 43 in the 1st May Day Tournament

Least amount of players in one tournament: Tied at 10 in the 2nd Eastern Blitz Tournament and 2nd Western Blitz Tournament

Average amount of participants in each tournament: 19

Map most being played on: tied between World Map, Europe, and North America maps

Best prize (based solely on my opinion): A Stein (mug) of course!

There is still time to join! Whether you are a veteran or a new player, we urge you to join and fight to claim your prize. The tournaments are free to join, so you have nothing to lose but all to gain.

We give thanks again to our organizers, King_HowardII, fodder, and ImLagging. Also to our sponsors, Droid Review Central, Droid Gamers, ImLagging, Mercer, KievRus, KingHowardII, and the Kingslayers Clan.

Good Luck to All!

May Of Conquest – Ready To Go (May 2012)

Filed under: Announcement,Business — Tags: , , , — Travis @ 07:35

Age of Conquest is a Risk-like turn-based strategy game that players from all over the world compete in. Playable on various maps including Europe, Asia, North America, even The World! The game is available for all major operating systems including Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Android and iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad).

Age of Conquest started many years ago and has come a long way. To celebrate each year, May of Conquest has been created which is a series of tournaments allowing players to compete for various prizes. With our final sponsors added, the tournament is ready to commence. But we are a long way from finding out our many victors. We have a grand total of 33 tournaments and prizes ranging from extended account membership to your very own Noble Master Games apparel and more. The tournaments are free to join. The tournaments start April 29.

There are many people to thank, let’s start with those who set it up. KingHowardII (aka KH), fodder, and ImLagging all worked on defining and setting up the entire festival. Over the course of several months they discussed every aspect in how things should be run, and the final result is excellent.

We also like to Thank our Sponsors

Age of Conquest has become widely popular on Android devices. Droid Gamers and Droid Review Central have each sponsored a 6 month extended membership tournament. We are happy to have them on board!

But we also have some players who have sponsored tournaments. ImLagging introduced me to Age of Conquest long ago! Mercer is a well-known and long time player of Age of Conquest. KievRus, honorable and fierce player. KingHoward has been active and helpful in the community for many years.

KingSlayers Clan has many strong and capable players in it’s ranks. Also of course, our very own Noble Master Games!

Don’t forget, the tournaments are absolutely free to join, so it is a good opportunity to gain a membership upgrade. Don’t want to join every tournament? Unsure which tournaments give which prizes? Check out the full details here http://www.ageofconquest.com/festival.html

Age of Conquest Online – Upcoming Events

Filed under: Announcement,Business — Travis @ 13:16

Age of Conquest’s May of Conquest is well under way and players can join via the Tournament page in-game.  Free to join whether you have a paid account or a free trial account means it could be your chance to win some cool prizes or a membership upgrade.  Detailed information can be found on the official page here.  Many thanks goes to King_Howard, fodder, and ImLagging who have been organizing it.

Also coming up is the Age of Conquest League.  Player realRiff expressed interest in organizing it, and has been working hard doing so.  Also helping are fodder and King_Howard, providing help to realRiff where they can.  It has been a while since AoC last had a league, but this one definitely looks promising.  There will be three categories, 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, and 4 vs 4.  Players will be required to have a paid membership and to have played at least 15 rated games to join, but they may join all three categories if they wish to.  To register, go to the official page here.  You can also find any other details you may want or need to know there.  Tapping into his creative side, realRiff created a promo video for the league which can give you a quick rundown of what is to come.

While I won’t be joining myself, I wish the best of luck to participants of both May of Conquest and the AoC League.
