herocraft2Herocraft, creators of several popular mobile strategy games are looking to get a bit more hardcore with their latest game.  Lords of Discord is a fantasy themed turn based strategy game that, unlike their previous titles, will be available on PC/Mac/Linux.  The team seems to be making a point of the fact that Lords is being made for core strategy game players and that it won’t follow the “freemium” pricing model.

herocraft1As you can see from the screenshots the game is already looking pretty slick, even though  they’re emphasizing that the artwork is not finalized.

Here’s a quick list of some of the more notable game features :

  • Two playable races: Humans and Demons
  • 3 types of landscape with terramorphing ability
  • System of character development with around 30 units in each race
  • Dozens of global spells for each race
  • Hot-seat, real-time and play-by-mail online multiplayer

You had me at “play-by-email.”

The Lords of Discord Kickstarter campaign runs until November 8th and has a funding goal of £60,000.
