Heroes & Castles
A new game by Foursaken Media

It was a quiet day at first, your castle having already been fortified for the inevitable attack. The witches frantically prepared the rituals for more sacrifices, but it wouldn’t change the fact that your king is dying... that the Gate is weakening.

In an instant and without warning, your castle is under siege and your walls are beginning to crack before your eyes. Your catapults unleash another barrage, shaking the very ground beneath you as they toss a dozen of the enemy in every direction… but they still march forward with no fear, for they are the very definition of fear itself...

Across the burned, war torn plain the relentless horde of undead march. Skeletons rise from the ground. Necromancers unleash arcane magical attacks. Mummies and Tomb Lords ignore the musket shells and arrows ripping into their rotten flesh.

Their sinister allies - the Orcs and Goblins - march alongside them. Giant Trolls battle towards your castle walls. Sacrificial goblins strapped with explosives forfeit their lives to destroy your castle. Orc Chieftains snarl at their soldiers, longing for battle… all of them want nothing more than for your castle to fall - and you with it.

You call for more reinforcements. Your regiment of Pikemen has already been slaughtered - cut to ribbons by their heavy infantry - and your lone Captain valiantly fights to his death. A new surge of Peons rush into the carnage, but you know they are nothing more than a distraction - something to buy you time. Your allies - the towering Northland Giants - are not even enough to stop their never-ending hordes.

Meanwhile the report of Dwarven musket fire and the volley or arrows from your wall guard are only temporarily reassuring... but you know it will take a miracle to survive this attack.

So with a heroic battle cry you charge into the fray, your ability and prowess worth that of a hundred ordinary men. With a renewed vigor, you declare that you will not let your castle fall this day!


And with that, we would like to announce our newest title, Heroes & Castles, an action/RPG/strategy/RTS/castle defense hybrid! Whew - yes, it really is all of those things!

We'll be happy to answer questions, and we'll be releasing more details in the following days Make sure to bookmark this thread for updates!

Thanks guys

We're hoping to bring a really immersive experience with Castles and Heroes, with an intense "I'm in a huge battle" feeling that I don't think we've seen before on iOS! Its really something else to watch your giants charge into the front line of a horde of skeletons and smash them to pieces - while being right there in the fray beside them
