Discover the wide-open world of the Middle Ages with all its dangers and mysteries! Hunt and cultivate your land, build your home and expand your village into a flourishing medieval town.

Europe in the early Middle Ages -- Nobles and clergy rule and the trade between the nations brings prosperity as well as envy, distrust, and greed. Military conflicts are everywhere and whole continents are changing.

You are in the role of a poor but skilled hunter and farmer set to take his fate into own hands. Use the ever-changing landscape to turn your small plot of land into a home, a village, and a kingdom that will stand the test of time, as you and your descendants create a dynasty to rule for generations to come! Entice others to live near and work for you, build your home, a village, and ultimately a thriving city where your dynasty will reign for generations.

Defending against wild animals while hunting for food, gathering resources and crafting equipment, building a house and erecting a whole bustling village while founding a family all contribute to a unique gameplay across many genres. Tough winters and unexpected events challenge your skills and dexterity as you strive to build your own legacy.

You can choose to follow the main chapters, solve the questlines or just roam around and explore the vast medieval world – but be careful as wolves or bears may try to take a bite from you...

Begin with the simplest things for your own survival like hunting and farming as well as building yourself a home. Found a family and have a heir - entice others to live near and work for you, erect many other building to transform your settlement into a vibrant village and, ultimately, a thriving dynasty that will reign for generations.

A massive medieval open 3D world awaits… Be aware of harsh winters and unexpected events while honing your skills to turn from a medieval survivor into a dynasty ruler. Grab your axe, hammer, or hunting bow - and craft your legacy!

The journey through time has just begun! Start your adventure into the past. Medieval Dynasty takes you NOW into the Middle Ages, where you start your life as a simple man and create your very own dynasty piece by piece!

Publisher Toplitz Productions and developer Render Cube are delighted about the successful Steam Early Access start of Medieval Dynasty. Fully motivated, they work on further developments for the game and proudly present its first major update. Here is a little tease of this first larger Medieval Dynasty content drop.

One of the major new additions are Events, adding an extra layer to the gameplay. You will be faced with many scenarios that can play out depending on how you deal with them. One day, you might have to deal with heavy rains that damaged your crops, while a few months later your people might get a significant boost because the joy of Spring can be felt in the air. These events can have a major impact on your game and will test your wits and leadership tact.

To give you an idea of how they work, here is an example. You’ve heard rumors of over 20 wolves being within the vicinity of the village. How will you react to this news? Will you tell your people in the village not to worry about it? Will you go out and take care of the wolves yourself? Or do you find another alternative? Whichever way you chose – the decision will directly impact the your village! Such events will not only provide you with additional variety, but they actively challenge your leadership skills too. Remember: your decisions will have consequences.

Events are not all that you will find in this update. As many of you requested we added some decorative items to the game. You can finally bring light to your quaint village by creating torches and lanterns. Not only will they provide light, but they’ll also add a bit of warmth too in those cold winter nights. We’ve also added furniture, so your people can have a place to sit and eat by, and we’ve added other little decorative items as well. All of this so that you can add your personal touch to your village.

We’ve also made your life a little bit easier too. Now you can carry a lot more on you and your shoulders thanks to the new pouches and bags. They will help you with all the heavy lifting and make your trips to other villages more efficient and lucrative.

These are just some of the major changes that we brought into the Medieval Dynasty world. For a full list, take a look at our changelog below. Let us know what you think of these new additions too. And as always, follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates (and a big shout out to our r/MedievalDynasty Reddit community!). Remember, this update is just the beginning.
