Gameplay

Serfs combines many aspects of strategic gameplay:

  • City building: Establish buildings and paths in a completely gridless environment to allow you the most control and freedom as possible
  • Economy: Build and optimize your production lines to achieve an efficient and profitable economy
  • Military: Create a sturdy protection for your empire against incoming attacks and expand your borders by claiming unoccupied land
  • Warfare: Conquer hostile territory and triumph over your enemies in great battles

Placing different types of buildings and connecting them with paths is an easy to learn process. But as the empire grows, productions become more complex and require more goods and suddenly, the previously empty paths, start to stall and whole productions have to slow down. 

The process of detecting weak points, altering and refactoring certain parts of the empire or even relocating whole productions can become very challenging, but the more satisfying if it succeeds and the small village from the beginning starts to grow into a large optimized empire.

Military units are fully controllable, they can be moved freely, garrison buildings, adjust their behavior, attack and capture enemy buildings. Military buildings expand the empire and require garrison to defend incoming attacks. Military is expensive to produce and requires large productions, it always causes the need to expand the empire. An efficient & large production can be decisive.  

Multiplayer

The Multiplayer mode allows playing with or against other players/bots and works on the same base system as the Singleplayer mode.

The World of Serfs

Serfs is themed after the High to Late Middle Ages ~13th century. And tries to resemble the architecture and ways of working these eras define.

Build your empire in large forests, open meadows or vast lands, adapt yourself to consist the challenges the landscape demands. Enjoy warm summers and overcome hard winters on procedural generated maps and dynamic weather.

Is it possible to play the Demo and record it and post to my YouTube channel to showcase the game

Yes sure! Just, please check our video policy first. And it would be nice if you share the video with us :)

Ok thanks, I have checked out the video policy and that's all ok with me, I will defo share the video with you guys when it done, great work on the game by the way, looks really promising!!!!

Any chance for a macOS build as well?

just FYI you can install Linux on your Mac machine as well, it is completely free and very easy to set up. I recommend the POP OS distro if you decide to do it.

Yeah, I know. Its just a pain to jump back and forth between OS'es.

Sorry, at the moment not, as we don't have any mac devices to test.

Looks awesome, I'd love to buy for Linux but the activation is a deal breaker for me.  I hope you will consider removing it.

Sorry to hear that! We won't make it completely DRM free, we may remove the email requirement in the future. And the key will convert to Steam for free, as soon as available.

It's almost harvesting season

Away with you vile beggar
