Fantasy City Builder “Distant Kingdoms” Announced for PC

Orthrus Studios and Kasedo Games have announced a new fantasy city building game called Distant Kingdoms.

Distant Kingdoms features a mix of city building, social management, exploration, and adventuring. Players are tasked with uniting the humans, elves, dwarves, and orcs of Talam so they can build a thriving civilization in the mystical realm of Ineron. Players will also have to send out adventuring parties to deal with threats like dragons and trolls, or to bring valuable artifacts back to your city.
