King Arthur Holds Demo

Fields are for roly-polies, not war.

King Arthur, the medieval strategy game Jim WITted a couple of weeks back, now has a demo. But what does this mean for you? How could I possibly know. If you would like it, it’s 1.85GB. And it’s also available via Steam. So come on, what are you waiting for?

    Apparently the demo is 2.4 gigs on steam. Jesus Christ…

    I notice that the full game has finally cropped up on several non-Steam services as well (Gamersgate, D2D and so on).

    No need to complain about the size, just upgrade your internet. It’s the 21st Century… and what’s more important to pay for than fast internet, food? Pssh…

    but internet tax

    2GB is nothing on broadband. On the other hand there are pirates on the internet. Everytime you navigate, you can be boarded by then…

    A hefty price cut, probably.

    Surprisingly I ended up liking the parts with text based adventures (although the countdown timers were pesky). Unfortunately I had played for half an hour in tutorial before they unlocked camps for restoring troops. The game felt much more fun after that. Unfortunately It liked all games of this nature is pretty fun for the first 1/3 of the game and then for my tastes they all get really bogged down in micromanaging troop movements. That you have to send a commander to join and then move every single trained troop from a camp only compounded this. Also it would be nice if the artifacts could get transferred between commanders. Anyway some minor niggles. I tend to just use the auto-battles in game like these and I enjoyed it very much for the few hours i played.

    It’s amazing how many say it get bogged down right after the tutorial ends…. I think gamers have got out of the habit of PC only games and have stopped reading the manual……! I have never played console or console type games, still play a lot of my retro games like Darklands and Daggerfall and System Shock 2 and I have read the manual, which means I am not bogged down and I am loving it!

    Yes,this game doesn’t hold your hand… Some wrong decisions and you have two fronts to deal with that maybe unwinnable. But that’s real life. Remember Hitler and the Russian front???!!!
