Filed under: Announcement,Development — noblemaster @ 01:33

I am currently trying to wrap development of Desert Stormfront. Nick sent in all the graphics a while ago. It’s all integrated and ready to go. Travis is currently working out the 30 campaign missions planned. Will hopefully be done by the end of the month and ready for beta-testing. Contact me via email (“Beta-Testing”) if you are interested in becoming a beta-tester for the game (Android, PC, Mac or Linux). Testing involves play-testing the 30 campaign missions (no technical testing required). No money paid, but you’ll receive a copy of the game for free and will have your name in the game credits.

Here is the lowdown for the game:

  • Real-Time Strategy (RTS) in the Middle East (desert)
  • single player & multiplayer
  • 30 Single Player Campaign missions
  • Random Skirmish scenario generator
  • Factions: USA, England, France, Italy, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Afghanistan plus a rebel faction.
  • Team-Play (included in multiplayer too)
  • 17 mobile units including: Humvees, Tanks, Artillery, 4×4, Mechanic, Trucks, Fighter Plane, Helicopter, Gunboat, Submarine, Cruiser, Aircraft Carrier, Super-Hovercraft.
  • 4 land structures: Base Station, Shipyard, Airfield, Oilfield
  • Occupy oilfields to receive income.
  • Fog of War
  • High Score & Playing Statistics
  • …and obviously Music and Sound FX

Release is planned for end of September/beginning of October. Below are some current alpha screenshots.

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!

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.
