What is it about?
A survival challenge in a 2D side scrolling set up with a unique theme in that you play as a king on horseback. You ride back and forth trying to recruit villagers, collect resources, and figure out mysteries. There's a simple structure of moving either left or right, and that allows for everything else in the game to have more layers of complexity. The game doesn't hold your hand to explain what to do, and instead allows you to explore, and try out your own strategy.
For those who...
- -Like exploration games. -Prefer to play without the game explaining everything.
Not for those who...
- -Want straightforward progression. -Don't like to retry a lot.
Why we love it
Kingdom differentiates itself from the pack by letting the player decide how much enjoyment they get from the game. It's all about exploration as you wander left or right, and try to piece together anything to expand your kingdom. There are mysterious environmental elements to uncover for an overarching replay system beyond simply recruiting people and building up your defenses and infrastructure.

In Kingdom: New Lands, you take on the role of a monarch struggling to build your kingdom up from nothing. Explore the lands for resources, recruit loyal subjects, and shore up your defenses — but make haste, for when nightfall comes, a dark and greedy presence awaits…
Kingdom: New Lands provides a welcome yet challenging & strategic experience for newcomers and longtime fans alike. Building upon the award-winning twist on tower defense gameplay and mystery of classic Kingdom, New Lands introduces an abundance of new content to the IGF-nominated title while maintaining the simplicity and depth that legions of monarchs have come to cherish.
Travel to the New Lands and welcome the deluge of new mounts, merchants, and vagrants that call these isles home, but be wary of the new obstacles that threaten your arrival - for not just the greedy creatures block your way, but even the environment itself can defeat you.
Be brave, ruler, and fight to the bitter end, lest these New Lands conquer you instead.

“I am in love.” -Destructoid
Traverse the land on horseback to discover all the wealth, secrets, and unlockables that you can use to your advantage.
Across the land, wandering vagrants await your orders. Spend gold to recruit them as loyal subjects to help build and bolster your kingdom.
Do you need sturdier walls, or taller sentry towers? Farming plots or bakeries? As the leader of your people, shape and sustain your kingdom as you see fit.
The wisest of monarchs know that the night brings danger. Make sure you’re safe and well protected from the insidious Greed when the sun sets - if they steal your crown, it’s all over!
Time and gold are both in limited supply. The army of Greed grows stronger with each passing day. The land, while plentiful, can also be harsh. Will you make the right choices of when and where to devote your resources?
