In Warsim your only goal is to keep the Kingdom of Aslona from destruction at the hands of it's enemies, fighting off the rebellion of Faradal the Kinslayer and his turncoat army. The Massive horde of Phenor, overlord of the masses of bandits. The great goblin kingdoms of Krut and E'rak as well as countless other minor bandit groups and kingdoms of randomly generated races.

Warsim's goal throughout development was to simulate ruling as king unlike any other game before, you will be made to feel like the ruler of a kingdom, with countless decisions you can take to shape your realm and bring your kingdom into glory or obscurity.

Features

  • Scores of places to explore including, a giant blackmarket filled with mystery and wonder, hidden cities (that's right multiple of them), Two schools where you can take lessons, one in music and one in history, a procedurally generated newspaper, and tons more, there has been an excessive amount of time spent fleshing out the world, exploration is heavily rewarded.
  • An arena which you can takeover and grow, or watch and bet on, holding giant tournaments and rooting for champions as they climb the ranks and get remembered for eternity.
  • A unique facial procedural generation system that can produce well over 100 quadrillion different faces for a variety of different races from Humans and orcs, to kobolds and treemen.
  • Deal with the throne room, a complex place with thousands of possible encounters and visitors, how will you manage the realm and treat your people?
  • Listen to some procedurally generated music, be it the drum solo of a nervous travelling goblin bard, or the proud music prowess of a well trained vampire showing off with his vampyric lute (or find the music guild and try your own hand at playing these instruments)
  • Tons of random events, no game will be the same, with the kingdoms, rulers and events always being different and hard to predict.
  • Procedurally generated kingdoms, bandit gangs and mercenary groups, never get the same group twice, be they Seafaring Goblins, Fire Orcs, Eyeless Elves or the Famed Half-Turtles of the Western Turtledom, all these races possible and a million more.
  • Countless mini-games played in taverns, your throne room, or around in the world to keep you entertained.
  • And so much more...

this is one of the most underrated indie games i ever seen, the potential is huge. even as it is its a great game and worth a buy.
but the marketing and pricing is terribly done, its worth 5$ not 3$ its disrespectful to pay any less then 5$ for this game. you can burn a lot of hours of fun with it. and there isnt alot of text based games like it, not that polished.

if i was this game owner/creator, i would upload a video about it every day, knock on every door, post anywhere they let me post. and even have a marketing budget targeted at indie game fans (rouglike/crusader kings/ casual game fans etc) you need a real targeted market research and good copywriting somthing that will talk directly to your target (your game description is OK). maybe use influencers, like that crazy sseth he did ascii based game reviews (maybe find a smaller youtuber influencer).

 and a better way to monetize this, at this rate it wont fly, and this thing can. maybe a patreon. its so good i personally will throw more dollas at this just to get more content.

you made it in the product creation phase which is a great feat alone. but you need marketing/ copywriting too. learn those stuff, read gary halbert (his stuff is free  gold). psychology of buying (why people buy). search on google anything you can find on internet marketing (and game advertising) free and paid seo etc (you can dominate some of your games keywords=free trafic in the long term).

in any case good luck.

Hey Yoel, thanks for such a kind comment!

I appreciate you seeing potential in it, The game is currently on sale on steam and I'm trying to get the discount visible and use it as an opportunity to gain more players.

I'm always happy to take on ideas around marketing though so I appreciate it!

Thanks a bunch :)

Hi! I just purchased your game here again (I already own it on Steam for some years now) to support your incredibly ambitious project and your dedication to continuously improve it. And indeed it gets better and better with every update and has become one of my favourites. I look forward to every new version. I wish you all the best with Warsim, I really hope it gets the attention it deserves.

<3 Thanks for the support! It means a lot
