It’s a strategic fantasy simulation game. In this game you are the architect in design your kingdom. You have to make sure that you have enough Food, Water, Iron for weapon, Gold for Money. You have to set up which area will be for your farmer, fisher man, game hunter, army, fortress, house etc.

I think the game is very cool. But, there is a problem that I found and no answer until now. I can not save the game and sometimes it suddenly close down (which I don’t like it most). Even it may suddenly make your computer hangs (Mentioned in a Forum).

So, If you want to try and find the solution for this game, please share it.
