Love the style! Will be keeping an eye on this project.
DEATH CROWN — alpha
A downloadable game for Windows
At the end of the millennial war, when all the cemeteries were overcrowded with the bodies of the dead warriors, came the one who was called The King. Thanks to his unyielding will, King managed to subdue and unite all the lands. The Kingdom appeared, and the era of the Human began.
The King ruled wisely and fairly, but his time on this land ran out: Death came after him. But the will of the King was so strong that he could deny Death.
He was so proud that he humiliated Death itself. The idea of the overwhelming power and immortality didn't leave his mind. The King realized that power over the living was not enough for him.
The King decided to get the powerful artefact known as the Death Crown. Thus begins the War of the Death Crown.
DEATH CROWN is a dynamic strategy game with local multiplayer, easy controls with retro 1-bit visual style. Inspired the Close Castles.
You need to destroy the stronghold of the enemy, before your enemy will destroy yours. Correctly chosen strategy determines the winner of the battle.
- Fast battles (5 min or less)

Looks very cool. Any plans for a 32-bit version?
of course! in the next version I will make 32 bit version ٩(•̤̀ᵕ•̤́๑)ᵒᵏ
First Impression Video (German):
Aktuell in der ersten Alpha. Mehr ein Proof of Concept, verspricht aber schon jetzt kurze intensive Taktik-Schlachten gegen Freunde.
- selbsterklärendes Gameplay
- kurze, spannende Runden (aktuell nur gegen Freunde am gleichen PC)
- nur eine Karte und 3 Gebäudetypen
- kein Online-Multiplayer oder KI-Gegner
Right now in it's first Alpha. More a Proof of Concept than anything else, but already very promising with intense Tactic-Battles against friends.
- gameplay explains itself
- short, intense Rounds (2 players only - same PC)
- only one map and 3 building-types
- no online-multiplayer nor KI-enemies
Wishlist for the Developer:
- more buildings (maybe a Loadout-System with picking 3 buildings for each battle)
- inverted colors mode / "dark mode"
- Tablet/Smartphone Version (I feel like sitting on an iPad Pro, face to face with a friend could be a lot of fun and chaos)
Looking forward for more content! :)
oh a gif just for me? that's much appreciated (I like it quiet a bit ^^)
Looking forward for more! already bookmarked the itch.io-page ;) It looks very promising. Probably coming up with a few more ideas later. (if you plan a tablet-version, I actually have quiet a good idea of how it could work for 2 players) But I want to see more of your ideas first. I honestly was surprised when I played with a friend how intense the game can get, even with just this very simple mechanics! great game-idea! :))
Special gif, I sometimes send it as a thanks to the cool guys c:
Thanks! Next I plan:
- add bot
- new elements on the battlefield and other gameplay changed
- make the balance unique for each side
- story mode with global map
Stay tuned for more c:
looks cool! I will try it
