Your world is about to come to an end in this new 4X fantasy game from Stardock. You’re in a struggle against the ever ticking Doomsday counter to save your world from the Sorcerer King before he can cast the Spell of Making to become a god and destroy the world. You’ll explore the land and encounter hundreds of quests along the way as you expand your kingdom, learn powerful new magic spells and choose who will be your friends or rivals. Can you last long enough for the final showdown? Can you stop the Sorcerer King?
The Sorcerer King: This is not a fair fight. Your opponent is more powerful, and his onslaught against the Shards you must protect is unending. Stand up to fight, or appear to submit to his will until the time is right.
Crafting: Rather than researching better weapons and armor, players must uncover the recipes and gather the components to build more powerful items through battle and adventure.
Enchanting: Use the unique talents of your chosen sovereign to imbue equipment with magical properties that customize your forces’ capabilities far beyond anything you’ve seen in a 4X to date.
Unique Skills: Rather than a shared research path, each sovereign increases their power in unique ways. Building great armies, wielding the Forge of the Overlord, intervening in tactical battles, and even bending the earth to their will.
Adventure: Hundreds of individual hand-written quests litter the landscape, bringing a little humor to the apocalypse thanks to the talents of Cracked writer Chris Bucholz.
Rivals: Remnant factions cling to life in the Sorcerer King’s world, but they cannot hope to defy him alone. Ally with them to gain their unique champion unit and what help they can provide…or wipe them out to claim their land and loot for yourself.
Endgame: Winning requires using all the game’s systems – crafting, enchanting, heroes, armies, magic spells, and more – to create a single army strong enough to storm the Sorcerer King’s fortress and prevail in the final battle.

Sorcerer King is unique take on 4X turn-based strategy game. It takes all the good things you've seen in Fallen Enchantress and adds some new and very interesting mechanics. One greater evil to defeat, while every other large faction is neutral and can be your allies (or enemies if you don't like them). RPG-like dialogues that can help you evade combat, gain new friends, or discover new items. And RPG-like progression for your hero characters and your sovereign. All of this adds up to a pretty cool and unique experience.
So far a fun game and thats with still loads of more content coming like more crafting stuff quests factions that could help or oppose you am hoping for fortress upgrades and hardened roads or something though since more movement for armies and some more use of the fortresses could be really important
