Stardock continues to release quality games on Steam. Today the brains behind Galactic Civilization III are releasing an expansion to Sorcerer King - a game I absolutely loved when it first released in July, 2015. It’s the first strategy game I’ve played where the bad guys have already won! We’ll have impressions soon but until then, you can purchase the game on Steam (currently just $22.49) and check out a synopsis and trailer below provided by Stardock:
Never the same game twice
You have risen to lead an up and coming civilization in magical land of Elemental. Your village lives in the shadow of one of the precious shards of magic. It also possesses something unique in all the world — the Forge of the Overlord. This powerful artifact allows its user to craft magical items and equipment.
Armed with the Forge of the Overlord, your people look to you to challenge the malevolent Sorcerer King, a being who has devastated the land and filled it with ruins and minions.
Unknownst to him, you have learned the Spell of Ascension that will allow you to channel the magic of the shards and enable you to ascend to a being of nearly unlimited power who can set the world free (or destroy it).
But you are not alone. Other civilizations are rising while the Sorcerer King schemes in his distant fortress. They too have their own plans…
