Trivia

Development

Conquest was originally a Digital Anvil product. After Microsoft took over Digital Anvil, the game was removed from the company schedule, even though it was close to completion. The Conquest team then, with Chris Robert's blessing, quit Digital Anvil and formed Fever Pitch Studios to finish it.
