'Songs Of Conquest' Is Coming To Steam Early Access In May - Screens & Trailer

Songs Of Conquest is a turn-based strategy adventure game that fuses RPG, tactical combat and kingdom management.

Songs Of Conquest is a turn-based strategy game where players can build their kingdoms, explore distant lands and battle for dominance in single player campaigns, online and local multiplayer or skirmishes. In battle, players will take control of a wide range of combat units as well as Wielders, unique hero units that can control magic and buff their troops, as well as cast destructive spells on their foes. The game will also launch into Early Access with a map editor that will give players the tools to create their own adventures and share their creations with others.

Songs Of Conquest is brought to life by an original take on pixel art design, allowing players to explore a unique and beautiful fantasy setting. The in-game world is teeming with noble knights, nefarious necromancers and forest Faey locked in battle over power and territory. Players will encounter four distinct factions, each with their own unique aesthetics, gameplay and hero units, ranging from the noble knights of Arleon and the mysterious Barony of Loth to the swamp dwellers of the Rana tribes or the mercenaries of Barya.

Songs Of Conquest is defined by its unique combat system, utilising hero units known as Wielders, each with their own affinity to a specific set of magic spells that buff their troops, rain destruction on their enemies or grant players extra turns and combat options. Each of the four factions prioritises a different magic school, and the Wielders’ mana resource, known as Essence, comes directly from the number and size of its army.

Coffee Stain Publishing and Lavapotion announced that Songs Of Conquest will release into Steam Early Access on May 10, 2022.

“We’ve been working on Songs Of Conquest for about five years now, and think it’s time we share it with the community that rallied around us when we first announced it.” said Carl Toftfelt, Lead Game Designer at Lavapotion. “Early Access will allow us to continue development and collect community feedback on in-game features and future content suggestions at the same time. We also can’t wait to see what our players will create with the map editor!”

“Working with the Lavapotion team and seeing their dedication to the craft and honouring the genre legends has been both inspiring and exciting at the same time.” said Johannes Aspeby, Producer and one of the founders of Coffee Stain. “We always wanted to work on a turn-based adventure, and are confident that Songs Of Conquest will stand on the shoulders of giants and reinvigorate a game genre we all grew up with.”
