Medieval Dream Battle is an upcoming sandbox RTS from indie developer Swamp Studio. It's an ambitious mix of real-time strategy combat, role-play mechanics, MMO-level scale, and sandbox world design.
As the name suggests, it's set in a medieval world caught up in the midst of war. You play as a power-hungry lord willing to do anything it takes to achieve his quest for glory. Along the way, you'll build villages, gradually expand your territories, and develop impenetrable defences for when your enemies inevitably strike back.
The game is planned to launch for mobile devices in Autumn of this year, with a beta set to arrive in August.
A Kickstarter campaign is also planned for next month, so be sure to keep an eye out for that if the video embedded above seems promising to you.
It's clearly still a work in progress, but I'm always interested to see how smaller developers tackle such grand ideas. Whether this one will pan out remains to be seen, though it definitely would be nice to have another fully-fledged RTS on mobile this year.
It's currently unclear whether Medieval Dream Battle will launch for both iOS and Android simultaneously. I suppose all will be revealed in next month's Kickstarter campaign.
