Veil of crows is a sandbox style real-time strategy game set in a chaotic medieval world. From violent, and overtly bloody battles, to completely destructible castles, RPG style hero development, and meaningful interactions with other factions.
Trade, bribe, extort, and destroy your way to world domination! The world of Veil of Crows remains persistent after you die, so your impact will have a lasting effect on the world even after you fail, or start over. Can you conquer the world and take the throne?Key features:
Epic battles:
* Command large armies in gratuitous bloody conflict.
* Besiege mighty castles with siege engines.
* Take advantage of destructible buildings and walls.
* Every type of unit has strengths and weaknesses.
* Take heed of the current weather, geography and battle conditions

* A massive sandbox style campaign map that includes more than 75 towns and villages ready to be conquered.
* Complete quests for other lords and village leaders for bounty and improving relations.
* Take your time to explore the world, or take your chances with random encounters.
* Hunt down the bandits who raided your village for resources and prisoners, or destroy their camps to prevent further intrusion.
* Just because you might die, doesn't mean your world dies too. Start again and your former kingdom still remains, however you are just another peasant in a land of corpses.

Four game modes:
* Prologue: Tutorial game... you will have some help along the way.
* Veil of Crows: The main game. You start with a hero and a small group of units. Keep your hero alive and put them on the throne, or die trying. Game-over will result after your hero dies, however, the world will remain as you left it, but you must start as a new character with a new faction.
* Sandbox mode: A casual game mode where you can select your starting conditions.
* Custom Battle: You set the scene! Units, Battle type, Location, Time of day, Current weather, your choice! Battle away!

Manage your faction:
* Six different resource types can be acquired in your villages. You can trade these resources, or use them to upgrade your castles and train stronger units.
* Forge alliances, or threaten and backstab your way to power. Every action you take will change other factions opinions of you.
* Extort and bribe enemy armies in the hope they will leave you alone, desert, or join your forces.

Mighty Heroes:
* Train up mighty heroes and generals to lead your armies and grant bonuses to your towns when granting vassals.
* Visit the armoury and customise your heroes equipment, and watch them carve through your enemies.
* Put your leader on the throne and conquer the world! In the main game, you start by customising the main character. You must keep them alive, and put them on the throne to truly conquer the world. If they die, game over!

Veil of Crows reviews and comments

Translated by

Early Access Review Veil of Crows Makes Fancy More! I've spent quite a few Hours and haven't had a single Crash and that for Early Access! So If you want to have a good Game at a very pleasant Price, you should rather now lead to Your Mind. Because if the Game goes to the next Level, this will rightly be the Price as well. But that, in my Eyes, is the Least;) Personally, I've always enjoyed playing Games like Total War and Stronghold. If you like this, you are in good hands here. Because this Game offers Elements of Both! It is Fun to expand its Castles and Villages, to set up its Armies and to take tactical action against Opponents. What I find also remarkable is the Idea of the Villages that form the Supply Lines to the City or the Cities. Thus, Conflict is "pre-programmed" ^^ Also the Basic Idea that the Population in the Capital Decreases as soon as one turns them into Recruits. But the Highlight here are the Villages too. Because all the less Population, the less tax Revenue. But what now? How well there are Villages that I protect through Guard Battalions and thus the Population in the Village also increases, as I pull them directly from the Danger area in an Attack. This allows me to move surplus population from the Village to the City and thus take more Taxes again. Watching The Battles is equally beautiful. Only the Buildings, when they are hit by Catapulting, take on a beautiful Destruction. What is striking here is also the Attention to Detail. Because when a Piece of Wall breaks out of the Building, you can see piece by piece the beautifully furnished interior of the Building. What I also think is good at is the Speed option. As a result, you can create or waste time at will, so that Units are trained faster. I think That was very good, because Total War only went after complete Laps, which was sometimes unpleasant, as you had to wait until all the Opponents had Their Moves through. This and much More is Offered by Veil of Crows. The experienced Developer is constantly doing all the Work here and Everyone is looking forward to More. Even those who are not proficient in the English language should look in here, with a bit of Time and Confrontation (Trying) in the Game, this is probably the only Hurdle whereby reviews with Negative Attachment can then be read;) However, I also have a Shortcoming. It is the Control of the Units in Battle. What's the best way to rewrite this? She's a bit of getting used to:D But again, you can get your head and then it's Fun. When the Enemy flees or runs, it has remained somewhat difficult to stand units saying, "So and now on Him with Roars:D" Because as a Rule, You run to take your Formation. I Believe That work still needs to be done on this. Otherwise, this is just my first Rezi I write to a Game and that says it's all I would say;) Get into battle Your Hero of the Night ... Guard ^^
