About The Games


Players control the forces of either the Malus or the Alyssians in a battle for supremacy in the Aldus solar system. Extracting resources from the asteroid belt that revolves around the two planets allows players to expand their fleet ­ but only if they can get their transports back to their spaceport. Researching new technologies allows them to upgrade the capabilities of their existing ships and build new models as well. They may capture enemy ships and steal technology to open up new research branches. There are also some surprise technologies that may be discovered throughout the asteroid belt.

Disciples II

Dark Prophecy - Players must brace themselves with renewed faith and newfound conviction as they take up their swords for the sake of their people and the glory of their Gods. Over 200 engaging characters will come to life in an epic battle of sword & sorcery. With enhanced gameplay mechanics, improved AI, and an upgraded battle system, Disciples II promises to provide players with the answer to the question…who among them will survive?

Kohan: Ahriman's Gift

The highly anticipated follow up to Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns, engulfs players into the story of the Kohan while providing countless hours of multiplay enjoyment and 30-40 hours of engaging single player campaigns. Now players will have the opportunity to lead the evil Ceyah faction through a campaign, enjoy two additional campaigns that delve into the history and mythos of the Kohan, and play expanded multiplayer games with friends and foes alike. Ahriman's Gift will offer players additional features such as powerful heroes, eye-popping spells, mystical technologies, formidable units, and much more. Furthermore, players will be able to take advantage of new editor features that will allow them to create stunning maps of dazzling terrains and far-reaching campaigns.
