Warlord: Britannia

Warlord: Britannia video game Developed by Darkmatter Games and published by Stribling Media

Developed by Darkmatter Games and published by Stribling Media

Warlord: Britannia is the first entry, in a new series of immersive-strategy games, created by Solo developer Darkmatter Games. Step into the shoes of a Roman General given direct command of a Legion, with orders from the Emperor to conquer an entire island.


A unique combination of first-person strategy elements places Warlord: Britannia in a genre of its own. Immersive-Strategy fixes the player in the first-person perspective of their character. Lead a large army, construct bases, conquer settlements, and disrupt enemy forces in the open worldentirely from this Immersive-Strategy perspective. Turn the tide of battle by participating directly in the action and fighting alongside your own troops, all in real-time.

Dynamic Open World

The world of Warlord: Britannia is an island more than 45 square kilometers in size, divided by latitude into three visually distinct geographic zones. Start your occupation in the densely forested Lowlands, then march north to the rolling hills and farms of the Midlands. Finally, push further north into the imposing and desolate Highlands. All three zones flow seamlessly together, and never subject the player to a loading screen.

Travel the roads cautiously and keep your eyes on the treelines, as trading convoys and roaming warbands criss-cross the open world in real-time. The local population quickly spreads word of your exploits, so choose your actions carefully. Manage the populations unrest levels and prepare for uprisings and raids on your camp. Enemies will react aggressively to repeated attacks and transgressions by the Roman invading force.

Massive Battles

Recruit up to 9 Roman centuries and their officers to fully staff your Legion. Hundreds of Romans and Barbarians will clash and die on the battlefield. Use your legionaries to attack local strongholds and towns, pillage and loot settlements, impose draconian taxes, and send the population back to Rome in chains.

Base Building

Construct a series of marching camps as you conquer the open world. Clear the forests and put up palisade walls. Set guards and patrol to keep watch over the camp at night. At any time, you may pack up and relocate your camp, allowing for complex strategic maneuvers. Decide where and when to set up your fort, and for how long to stay before conditions become too dangerous.

Roman History

All of the weapons, armors, structures, names, and gameplay elements are inspired directly from extant material and literary archeological remains. Solo developer, Darkmatter Games, has painstakingly recreated these elements from scratch and by hand to bring the ancient world of Britain in the 1st Century AD to life like never before. Historical authenticity is the core element of the Warlord franchise.

Battlefleet Engineer DEMO

Battlefleet Engineer DEMO video game by Metalfusion

Made by Metalfusion

This is a free demo for spaceship building and fleet combat game Battlefleet Engineer. In this demo you can play randomly generated individual battles with premade ship designs and random fleet composition. Buy the full game from Steam!

Core features

RTS-style battles with up to dozens of ships per side. Fixed fleets, doesn't include building of units or resource management mechanics.

Ships are made of and entirely defined by their modules. The modules such as generators, thrusters, weapons, armor etc. form the structure and define the behavior of the ship. Ships can have anywhere between 5 to over 1000 modules.

No-cheating Newtonian physics. All movement is driven by forces from thrusters and other actuators, and there is no friction or dampening. Ships and other objects are simulated as rigid bodies with accurate collision geometries and inertia.

Per-module damage model - ships can get partially disabled and split in two. Damage model also includes armor penetration and ricochet calculations.

Ship resource system. Most modules have a single function such as power generation or heat dissipation. The resource system gathers, stores and distributes resources such as electricity, heat and fuel between modules on every frame.


Gameplay in this demo consists of commanding your fleet in real-time battle against computer controlled enemy fleet. The game is single-player only. Both fleets and level parameters such as battle area size, deployment zones, and asteroids are randomized for each battle. The demo comes with over 40 ship designs from the developer to ensure variety.

To defeat your enemy, you will need to keep on top of the situation and select targets for your ships based on weapon ranges, maneuverability and defences of both your own and the enemy ships. Positioning and timing of engagements is important because different weapons have very different effective ranges and ships usually only have heavy armor at the front. Keeping your fleet close together maximizes our concentrated damage output, but risks getting surrounded by the enemy. Using specialized ships such as "tanks" and "snipers" effectively can often decide the outcome of the battle.

This demo also allows different styles of play. You can micro-manage movement and targeting of all your ships by pausing to give orders, or just tell them to attack all enemies, sit back and watch the beautiful destruction unfold. You can also take control and fly any of your ships manually, with optional control over target selection and weapons as well.
