Notice that there are two different kinds of Bridges, one intact and one destroyed.
This can be the crucial difference...!

Heroes vs Warlords


is the title of our new upcoming fantasy strategy game.

Heroes vs Warlords is a fantasy strategy game set in the world of Pangea. Pangea is inhabited by clever Amazons, mighty Knights, wild Barbarian Warlords, and Neutrals. The Neutrals guard the treasures found in Pangea. The world of Pangea is largely unexplored. Vast lands, where no civilized soul has ever been before, are waiting for you.


Are you up to the challenge? Will your hero's/warlord's army gain new riches for your empire? Will you crush the enemy hordes? Or will you fall victim to the monsters that are hidden in the various towers, ruins and mines scattered across the land.


Heroes vs Warlords is about the eternal struggle for supremacy. In this 1, 2, or 3 player game you get the chance to see if you succeed. Will you be the ruler of Pangea?


Heroes vs warlords is inspired by the classic PC games of exploration and evolution of a hero/warlord and his army.


The game can be further expanded for a nearly unlimited amount of players with several upcoming expansions. A solitaire mode can be reached without extra cost just with a Kickstarter Stretchgoal.
