Beer Illwinter's next project

I have now put together a web page with a little information on our next game. It can be found on the Illwinter page here:
http://www.illwinter.com

The game is Conquest of Elysium 3. For those that haven't tried it, it's another fantasy strategy game, but simpler and much quicker than Dominions.

So that's what we are working on now!

Cheers,
Johan K
(Developer, Illwinter Game Design)

I'm very excited, both to hear that Illwinter is working on a new title, AND that it's CoE3!

The production page should mention also that Conquest of Elysium 2 is a free download from Shrapnel in case someone wants to try it out

Well, I don't want to scare anyone away from CoE3. We are way better at making games now than we were when CoE2 was made and I believe CoE3 already is much better than its predecessor.

Thanks for the update! After all this time I still enjoy Dominions but having a faster playing game sounds like a fun complement (the only thing I don't like about Dominions is the number of units you have to manage in the late game). And I'm very happy that it supports MP as Dominions has gotten me hooked on that.

Do you plan on having a similar level of modding support as for D3 (perhaps not initially but down the line)?

And, now that it's been announced, does that mean a tentative 2012 launch date?

As someone who considers CoE an excellent game (and actually better than Dominions for single player) I can only say: I can't wait.

The headline says, somewhat confusingly
"Conquest of Elysium 3 is in development right now (2012-08-09)."

I take it that's supposed to be 2011, not a hint at a release date or something.


I assume that you're still developing on Linux and CoE3 will be released for it?


Very interesting news. I played around with CoE2 a couple years ago and wasn't all that impressed. That said, I have faith. When can we pre-order?

Correct, that's a typo. I sure hope it will be finished much sooner than that date.
