You play the heirs of a powerful family. After being sent in exile by your foes who sneakily took over your flying citadel with an army of treacherous swarm bots, you need to regain what is rightfully yours, find powerful allies and rally the population on the way.
The gameplay is a little like Risk, with you strategically deciding which sectors your limited troops will attack, defend or abandon to the enemy, then fighting in turn based battles. There are some pretty high priority targets for you to capture however, as certain buildings will give you a crucial advantage in battle. You’ll also have to manage resources, keeping your army well fed and in high spirits if you want them to unlock their full potential.
Highlands is still very early in development, but already the artwork already looks wonderful and the strategic combat is fun and engaging. The devs are keen for any feedback, so if you’d like to help test Highlands, sign-up for the Beta!
