2D isometric RTS; takes cues from the Settlers
Knights & Merchants: The Shattered Kingdom is a decent RTS with a few interesting additions/perks. The game allows you to wield armies as big as you can produce the resources for. The game's perk, the main one, in my opinion, is the game's (relatively) unlimited number of units you can spawn. As long as you can feed them, you can wield them, should have been this game's motto! The game is mission based but it also packs these missions inside a pretty interesting story, having to do with this kingdom that needs to face foes and a ruler that has almost driven it to economical collapse. You will also love the game because of the graphics, which are pretty great. The diversity is alright, the maps use just a bit of The Settlers graphic style, and what I mean by that is that Knights & Merchants: The Shattered Kingdom also looks like it's been touched by a bit of cartoonishness, and by that plastic looking/almost saturated colors choice. It might not be as developed as The Settlers, and the disconnect between the story, which is quite dark and the game's looks, all cheery and what not, kind of will put you off. Still, the ability to raise larger armies can be interesting, even for short time.
