Will To Power
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Will To Power is a Survival Game with a difference. It’s set in the medieval period after the fall of the Roman Empire. The land is scattered with the ruins of old roman bath houses, aqua ducts, amphitheatres and scarred with roads that once connected towns and cities together.
The fall of the empire was quick and left a power vacuum in it’s wake, leaving the lands in a state of chaos and lawlessness.
Do you have the will to restore law and order? Do you have the Will To Power?
What will be Will To Power’s main features?
First Person – The game is first person only.
MultiPlayer – So far there is only an online version being developed, but there is no reason you can't run a local server and play it that way. Possibly MMO, need to test the server once more features are implemented.
Survival – Night & Day Cycles, Seasons, Weather, Health, Stamina, Blood, Hunger, Thirst, Temperature, Building, Gathering, PVP etc.
Base Building - Construct buildings, forts, castles, palisades, battlements and other strategic structures to help protect your settlements from attack.
Settlements – Settlements will be focal points in the world. They are created by players and the founder is in charge. You can accept or decline new citizenship requests.
- Name – Name your settlement.
- Level – Settlements level up and when they do your territory expands. Settlements start out as Villages, then progress to become Towns, Cities and finally a City-State, e.g. Village -> Town -> City -> City-State. If your territory expands and that area is already someone elses, it will remain their’s unless you conquer it or merge through an alliance.
- Experience – Settlements gain experience allowing them to level. Experience is gained by the actions of citizens e.g. a citizen cutting wood or doing other types of labour within their settlement's territory.
