Battles And Castles - introducing turn based strategy game

It's been a long time since we released last game.
We were busy with something we always loved to do - fully featured turn based strategy game.
Heroes of Might and Magic and Civilization are my favourite turn based series so we are influenced by them.

I would like to share with you some pictures presenting current status of the game.

I hope some of you are fans of strategy games as well and you would like it

Great!! Always a fan of TBS. looks good so far and hope you guys achieve what you've set out to do. Will be following. Question everyone will want to ask is for a ball park release date? We understand if it's too early to tell us that. Good luck!

That looks like a good start. Add more to the landscape like hills like in GLWG and it'll look better.

Wow... I can't wait for this one. Looks amazing. The 3D castles/buildings give it a nice physical feel. Although the unit design looks a little plain vanilla (I'm hooing for some more fantastic units... orcs, necromancers, dragons, etc). I have enjoyed Cars & Guns 3D and I Love Zombies by this developers so this looks like a no brainer.

Same idea here, as Undeadcow, big fan of tbs and the terrain and castles look phenomenally interesting/exciting for this type of game. 2 thumbs up from me.

I'm going to use a cliched expression to describe my reaction to the units; a little underwhelmed by comparison to the above. For me the painted faces either could be hilarious - or they could be too inexpressionless/lacking character/anima. Just my particular reaction: They might work brilliantly for others who like that style/look, perhaps they remind me a little of lego men in a way. Aiming to be constructive.

Cool title and impressive screenshots overall.

I really like the 3D graphics and scope of the game, as it looks like you can great large armies and castles. At first I though this game would be a great RTS game, but I'll gladly take a good TBS game as well.

I'm not sure if I like the tilt to rotate function, could that be changed to a virtual button, in the options? Also are there any plans for adding a offline skirmish mode besides the campaign?

While we are waiting, I don't suppose you have some gameplay videos to post?

Favorite mobile RTS: Autumn Dynasty, Amoebattle & Red Conquest
Great TBS/SRPGs: Wesnoth, Battle Academy, Kingturn, Pantheon Cycle, Dungeon Crawlers, SW&E, Viking Lords, Metal Brigade Tactics, Tactical Soldier, Ravenmark, Tactics Maiden and Banner Saga
