Strategy game: Knights and Merchants (Mac) shipping
Realtime strategic economy simulation Knights and Merchants is now shipping for the Mac. Knights and Merchants recreates the era of the Middle Ages. The player takes on the role of an ordinary captain in the king's Palace guard who finds himself responsible for the defense of the last loyal province. You, the player, must win back all those provinces which once belonged to your king. You have to manufacture different products, making use of numerous buildings and producer goods of the Middle Ages period. One result of your productive labor is the manufacturing of weapons and armor. But your success or failure depends mainly on the structure and organization of your economy. An efficient organization increases production, while a badly organized structure will cause non-stop delays.
