Wizards and Warlords PC Game 2020 Overview:
W&W is a mix of 4x Fantasy, Dwarf Fortress, Roguelike, Dominions. It has a bit of here and there. The goal is basically to lead a wizard or a Warlord and conquer the world.
This world is created in a procedural way, being able to choose between a wide range of parameters, such as size, geological age, cultures, variety of fauna and species, etc.
The world is divided into provinces distributed in hexagonal squares and our HQ is a tower located in one of them if we play as a Wizard, or a town if we play as Warlord. Both structures can be improved and give access to the construction of new buildings, very much in the style of the traditional 4x (bazaars, prison, laboratories, barracks, and a very long etcetera). Around we have fields, mountains, swamps, volcanic places, and many other types of terrain, some with special properties (with materials/resources that give a bonus to that hexagon) and a living world, with towns, cities, castles, etc. that are evolving over time and with whom we can relate and interact, both militarily and diplomatically (or simply to trade).
One of the mechanics that have attracted me a lot is the presence of some Followers, some followers of our Wizard who are our characters who have to lead our armies and carry out diplomatic, espionage, and exploration/search operations around the world. Each has its own abilities and characteristics: one is better at leading troops, another is better at social skills, others have traits that make them somewhat repellent and good at acting in subterfuge or sabotage missions, etc.
