Conan Unconquered Shows Off They Are Billions-Inspired RTS Gameplay

Conan Unconquered

Conan Unconquered, an RTS interpretation of the Conan stories, has shown off its debut gameplay footage, complete with some remarkably faithful recreations of the canon.

Describing the title as a “[non-traditional] strategy game” with “a lot of spinning plates”, members from the game’s developer, Petroglyph Studios, hinted that Conan Unconquered would follow non-linear, wave-based challenges.

Announced late last year, Conan fans and RTS aficionados alike have been anticipating gameplay footage.

Primarily, the game is about surviving waves of enemies through strategy, combining the RTS genre with horde-based survival systems. Conan Unconquered‘s non-linearity comes from its randomly generated levels, facilitating split-second tactical decisions and long-term strategy.

Basic enemies will not be the primary challenge, as players will have to find ways to circumvent environmental hazards through resource management. Running parallel to player concerns about oncoming threats will be internal challenges in keeping their stronghold politically sound with high morale.

The art assets are a standout, capturing the Conan aesthetic perfectly, much like 2018’s Conan Exiles. Petroglyph Studios appears to have nailed the desolate, sand-strewn environments of the Conan franchise, as well as providing plenty of colour with its architectural and unit designs.

The gameplay clip name-dropped two major inspirations, namely Frostpunk and They Are Billions. If Conan Unconquered manages to capture any of the magic of those two games, then Conan and strategy fans are going to be spoiled.

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine Adds Chinese-American Stories and Chinese Localization

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine will be receiving a new content update featuring Chinese-American stories, including full Chinese language support.

According to Steam, a new content update entitled “Gold Mountain” is available for anyone who owns the game. The update focuses on new tales focusing on Chinese Americans and their impact on American history and culture. The Steam update also explains the reasoning for including these stories:

“The Gold Mountain update was created to honor the millions of Chinese-Americans generally overlooked in American history. We hope that you enjoy the new original stories that are included in the update and look forward to reading all of your thoughts.”

Additionally, the ‘Gold Mountain’ update includes full Chinese language support for the game’s ‘Fireside Chats’, which is a free standalone experience that adds exclusive story content to the game’s 16 characters. The full Chinese version of the main game will release once the Chinese localization team, led by Ryan Zhang, finishes the new content.

OnlySP’s Derek Swinhart was left disappointed by the game when it released last year, stating that it promised “a long and exciting road-trip across unknown territory, but ends up only offering flat tires and postcards of better places.”
