Heroes vs Warlords


is the title of our new upcoming fantasy strategy game for 2 to 4 players.

Heroes vs Warlords is set in the world of Pangea. Pangea is inhabited by Heroes like clever Amazons, or mighty Knights, and by Warlords like wild Barbarians, or scary Necromancers, and finally by Neutral Guards. The Guards keep an eye on the treasures which can be found in this world. Pangea is largely unexplored. Vast lands, where no civilized people have ever been before, are waiting for you!


Are you up to the challenge? Will your hero's/warlord's army gain new riches for your empire? Will you crush the enemy hordes? Or will you fall victim to the monsters that are hidden in the various towers, ruins and mines scattered across the land.


Heroes vs Warlords is about the eternal struggle for supremacy. In this 1, 2, 3, or 4 player game you get the chance to see if you succeed. Will you be the ruler of Pangea?


Heroes vs Warlords is inspired by the classic PC games of exploration
and evolution of a hero/warlord and his army.


The game can be further expanded for a nearly unlimited amount of players
with several upcoming expansions. This may als include a solitaire mode.
