Hi there I'm now finished with a game that I've been working on for a very long time.
You start at the iron age and advance to medieval and imperial age. Each new age unlocks better units and buildings.

Starting with a few ranged units you slowly start gathering gold and can train more units both ranged and melee. But after a while it won't be enough. You will have to construct outposts and send workers to gather resources. There are three types of resources, Lumber, Stone and Iron.

Edit: I'm currently working on a Special Edition of this game!
Find out info here: http://holgerssonent...pecial-edition/

Link to game: Fortify on YoYo

So take a look, try it out, I don't think you will be disappointed Posted Image
There is an (old) gameplay video HERE. The gameplay is still the same, but the graphics have been updated since I made it.

Have fun!

AWSOME AWSOME AWSOME!!!
Graphics 8/10 This makes top down sprites look good even though I don't like top down graphics.
Gameplay 9/10 I love the way this is set up with the ages and everything just like age of empires 2.
Story 4/10 Well strategy games don't matter about story anyway.
My only complaints are that you can't move the camera(other than scroll in and out).
And that you can't build towers.
Also the title thing is a little messed up the lightning works but what
are those red things that are cut in half.

Post rated up :D .
Very addictive.

Thanks man! :D
But you should be able to move the camera with the arrow keys and W,A,S,D. All controls can be seen by pressing C. And you can build towers :S
The "red things" are letters ;). It's like my logo xD .

Anyway thanks. I've now updated the game to include online leaderboards that can be found here: http://www.gmhighsco...php?gameid=1052
The leaderboards are still a little thin ;) seems like most people don't add their score :o

Yeah but the transition doesn't work right and the letters are cut in half.
Just beat the game, well sorta Trocles had 300 health then my computer crashed.
But I caount it as a win.
I mean towers everywhere not just in the castle.

That, was totally, AWESOME!!!

Seriously dude I basically never logon and I just play the games I find here. But WOW -- you made an AMAZING game here!

Before I thought the game would get even remotely boring you introduced something new. From king's messengers (a very neat little addition :D) and aerial units. Your game is the whole schbang! The animations, graphics, balance, storyline, the whole game just screamed hard work and determination. This is one of the few games that are worthy of completion, as many developers tend to rush to finish their games and skip out on a few things. I beat the game and it was excellent :D

Awesome work.

Loved this game. Great work, great potential. I'm going to write a full-scale review (already started work on it) and I'm going to (attempt) to play through each difficulty so I can review it properly. But awesome job and I hope to see updates or a sequel. Hopefully a sequel because there's lots of stuff you could add and improve, more on that later. ;)

Wow haven't checked this thread in a few months and I'm very very glad to hear the positive responses :)

Since this I've added a new background image and some new graphics that I really think improves the game, and also made it about 10MB smaller.

As of yesterday I started work on a LAN-verision of this game. Where you can send units to your opponents castle to defeat him. By sending units you gain "income" which will generate more money as you go. Kind of like some WC3 tower defense maps that are out there. As I said I just started and it's a complicated game, I dont know how much time it will take or if I'll be able to do it, but I'll keep you posted.

Thank you for the responses, keep them coming, I'm able to update the game if you notice any bugs or anything.

I'm bringing back this topic because I have some big news!

Firstly, the game has been upgraded to GameMaker Studio, had some quality improvements and is updated on the YoYo Sandbox!
But more importantly, I'm working on a Special Edition of this game, it currently looks like this:

Posted ImagePosted Image

it will include the following improvements:
- Real-time shadows based on time of day
- Improved art
- New interface
- Code optimization.
- Arcade mode: How long can you survive the attacks?
- Achievements
- Better implemented leaderboards


And hopefully!
- Multiplayer Player vs Player mode, tower defense style
And more!


More information can be seen here: IndieDB News
There, you will also be able to follow the updates in the news section.

Thanks for the support and the almost 10,000 downloads of the original!

Man, this game is quite inspiring for me!

 

I found it when I was trying to learn how to create a FOW for my TDS game.

 

If you want to see what I'm currently doing take a look at Towncraft in my signature, it'd be awesome to receive feedback from you, haha.

 

But please, don't feel pressured by me, only do this if you can. LOL XD

 

Congratulations, keep it up and... I'll be waiting for Fortify 2!
