Design the layout of your own medieval dream castle.

What kind of gatehouse should you build? How high should the battlements be? As lord or lady of the realm, you’ll make life and death choices over your fiefdom. Cheat workers of hard-earned wages. Engage in brutal treachery and make scores of enemies, then sit in a cold, damp castle and wonder why no one likes you. All the neat things that went into making the medieval ages a swell time are in this package. Choose between realistic and magical settings and build individual castles or go on an eight-game campaign. This game ultimately sold more than 400,000 units, not to mention several hundred thousand more as part of Interplay’s “10th Anniversary Collection” CD.

This product also spawned a Northern Campaign expansion pack.
