Description

Knights & Merchants is a game very similar to Settlers II, and that's not really a coincidence, as they were made by the same lead programmer, who started his own company (Joymania).

In K&M you start building a base and gain resources, and after that you make an army and try to attack the enemy. It's a mix between a godsim and a RTS game.

The game features resolutions up to 1024x768 with high-detail landscapes in 3D, with 2D-bitmap buildings placed upon it.

Trivia

Cancelled add-on

Joymania planned to release an add-on for Knights and Merchants: The Shattered Kingdom entitled Mission CD. This add-on was supposed to include new gameplay elements and a lot of new missions. It was canceled because of financial problems at TopWare. What happened to the material that had already been completed is unknown, but it is thought that it was used as base for Knights and Merchants: The Peasants Rebellion.
