Mojang AB was the Swedish video game company that brought us Minecraft back in 2011. Now the Microsoft-owned company brings out their new project, the free streaming game Crown and Council, called also by the company as a fast-paced strategy game. Henrik Petterson from Mojang AB was the mastermind behind the creation of the new game released on Friday.
A 2016 pixelated gameplay
Just like Minecraft, this game is a 16-bit game, where the pixelated style remains. The gameplay? Quite simple enough, it’s like plating Risk or Civilization, where the goal is to conquer the surrounding lands, defeat your enemies and expand your empire. Also to do this you will need some gold, so that way you could fund the constant growth of the powerful empire you will lead to victory. Sounds really simple, isn’t it? Well, it is, but at the same time it’s quite challenging.
The Mojang blog stated that the game “”It’s simple to play, but not quite so easy to win: do you spend all your cash on universities, hoping to survive long enough that your book-learnin’ makes you unstoppable in the late game? Or do you go for a quick land-grab, hoping to put enough boots on the ground to give you an irreversible early advantage?”
While Minecraft was a project entire developed by Markus “Notch” Persson with his partner Jens Bergensten, Crown and Council was made by Henrik Pettersson. The game also uses a procedural-generation system to create the maps, where there are about 75 maps that will come with the game, and more can also be created in case to be needed.
Now you might be asking: “What are the requirements to run out this game on my computer?” the answer will leave you stunned. The system requirements are only 300 MB of free space, where other games requirements actually are over 30GB, and not to mention also the RAM requirements other games demand, but hey, it’s fair for pixels.
Crown and Council is actually on steam, so what are you waiting to conquer the pixelated land?
