The late 1990s and early 2000s were a fantastic time for fans of any type of strategy games. Real-time strategy fans had classics like Age of Empires II and hidden gems like Black Moon Chronicles. There were grand strategy epics like Age of Wonders, turn-based RPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics, and strategy-heavy city builders like Pharaoh. While strategy games haven’t gone anywhere, I have a lot of fond memories of the titles I played in the past.

Songs of Conquest is an upcoming turn-based strategy game that draws inspiration from some of the most beloved games of that time. You’ll play as one of four factions that are engaged in a seemingly endless conflict. To build and expand your empire, you must carefully manage resources, research advancements, and wage war against your enemies.

What makes Songs of Conquest stand out from other titles is the way your victories are celebrated. Your triumphs and failures will be chronicled in song by bards. At the end of each mission, you’ll unlock a new verse. If you manage to complete a campaign, you’ll be able to hear the song in full.

Not only does Songs of Conquest have a really unique musical mechanic, but it also has amazing pixel art. Whether you’re inspecting units up close or viewing the map from a distance, the visuals are genuinely stunning. If the gameplay is on par with the art and music, this title is sure to be a must-play.

Currently, Songs of Conquest is set to release on PC in early 2022. If you’d like to follow the title and learn more about its planned features, you should make sure to add it to your Steam Wishlist.
