Erect palisades, develop structures, and grow your gord from a humble settlement to a formidable fortress. However, expansion won’t be easy! Your population is constantly at risk from enemy tribes, gruesome monsters, and mysterious powers that lurk in the surrounding woods.
Venture outside the walls of your settlement with Gord’s AI-driven quest system, ensuring a huge variety of challenges to take on. Main objectives will guide your gameplay, while versatile side quests and random encounters will send you off into the wilderness to hunt down a legendary creature or fight off a nasty scourge that has infected the region. Expect the unexpected.
A healthy populace is the key to survival in Gord. Every aspect of your settlers’ lives – from illness and hunger to the death of their kin – can impact each subject’s Sanity and Burden levels. Keep a close eye on them, as once they reach a critical point, your subject will suffer from a breakdown or even flee your rule.
Please the Gods with your prayers and they may give you access to their spellcasting abilities. Incantations vary in nature – some are offensive while others are defensive – but they all help to tip the battlefield in your favor. Conceal areas from your enemies, gain control over threatening beasts, or turn a unholy rage against all who dare to oppose you.
