Hi all! I make a game.

“Drums of War” - is a turn-based tactical strategy game boasting well developed combat system and interactive environment, providing wide opportunities for tactics.

You play the role of a hero-leader. As the campaigns unfold the size of your armies can increase by up to 16 varied units. By participating in battles, all of the units become more experienced while naturally getting stronger. Players have the ability to hire new recruits, buy potions and distribute artifacts obtained in battles between fights. Each unit can be outfitted with one artifact and two potions. In addition to common units the player's army can include up to three unique heroes.

The turn-based fights take place in field divided into traditional hexes. Just as in role-playing games, each unit is an independent fighter with their own skills and outfit.Almost every environment object is interactive – one can chop down a tree, set it on fire, or even turn it into an ally using magic. Each unit has its own action points which can be spent for any action – movements, attacks, spells or active skills. The player can randomly move units during his turn.

The in-game campaign editor lets you create custom campaigns, as a series of linked battles, with story text and customized rewards. You can save these campaigns a single file in order to easily share them.

With each unit the player has to make important tactical and strategic decisions. There is no need to remember a great number of each units properties or make complicated calculations – the player should rely on their personal assessment of the current situation.

For most of the actions only one mouse click is enough – directing your army is easy and comfortable!


Features:
2 campaigns spanning 30 missions each.
4 available races, 50 unique characters.
An interactive environment.
Campaign editor
Attack castles with siege ladders and catapults.
Hotseat.

That looks really good. Love the art and the slightly animated trees. Nice touch. Music's pretty nice too. I was a little surprised not to hear war drums, considering the title of the game, but the instruments you did use worked fine.

Gameplay looks like it works well. I do think that I'd want the option to put the interface on the right, though, since most modern games I've played have it there. Not a huge deal, though.

This looks amazing and super fun. I really had fun with Defender's Quest when it was released on Steam and this looks like it'll be a mixture of that and Battle for Wesnoth. Can't wait to play it.

Due to we are Russians we have several problems with our game texts.
It is hard to read and it is fumbled.
It was proofreaded but nothing really changed.
So we need native English speakers who can make our texts sound better.
For your work you will get a free copy of “Crasleen: Drums of War”, our eternal appreciation and some money.
Write me if you are able to do that.
Regards, Vladimir

Text editing has been completed! Thank you.
