Heir to the Horde revealed

With three more days to go until PixelHeaven 2017, we are finally ready to unveil more details about Project Actium. We decided to name it Heir to the Horde, and it might be the final name of the game! But what is Heir to the Horde exactly? Well, do you like old school rpg games? And do you like a good story? Then Heir to the Horde will spark your interest for sure!

  • Story driven rpg in which the player takes the role of a Mongolian clan leader.
  • The story is about a clan that is forced to migrate to other lands.
  • The story doesn’t just cover one hero, but multiple generations of successors. As the clan moves further away from their home, with every generation the player takes control of a new leader.
  • The actions of previous clan leaders have huge impact on the story and gameplay.

An early build is playable at PixelHeaven 2017 in Warsaw (26 & 27 May), so if you are in the neighbourhood, be sure to check out our booth. For those who aren’t able to join us, here is a screenshot of a very early build. Feedback is welcome on our Facebook or Instagram.

Hi, we are Nautical Games :)

Allow me to introduce ourselves: we are Nautical Games, a newly founded game development studio in Heerlen, the Netherlands. We are currently working on our first project, which is an old school rpg. Our game has no name yet, so we refer to it as project Actium for now. In March 2017, we will “officially” announce our project and tease you with information, some art and maybe even a screenshot. We are a team of two. My name is Ulas, and I am the programmer. The other co-founder is Kelvin, and he is the graphic designer.

Thank you for your interest in us, and if you are a fan of classic rpg games, keep an eye out for project Actium, and check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Oh, and have a great 2017, we know we will 😉

Ulas Cantepe, programmer & co-founder of Nautical Games
