Ships Ahoy - Drums of War

Slitherine Group announces the Drums of War are now beating with the release of Drums of War, a new turn-based strategy game. This is available as a boxed version/download combo or as a download only, and includes an in-game campaign editor. Here's the pitch:

You play the role of a hero-leader. As the campaigns unfold the size of your armies can increase by up to 16 varied units. By participating in battles, all of the units become more experienced while naturally getting stronger. Players have the ability to hire new recruits, buy potions and distribute artifacts obtained in battles between fights. Each unit can be outfitted with one artifact and two potions. In addition to common units the player's army can include up to three unique heroes.

The turn-based fights take place in field divided into traditional hexes. Just as in role-playing games, each unit is an independent fighter with their own skills and outfit. Almost every environment object is interactive one can chop down a tree, set it on fire, or even turn it into an ally using magic. Each unit has its own action points which can be spent for any action movements, attacks, spells or active skills. The player can randomly move units during his turn.
