Mohawk Games Announce Bold New Turn-Based Strategy Game “10 Crowns”

Starbreeze and developer Mohawk Games (led by Soren Johnson, lead designer of Civilization IV) have announced 10 Crowns (working title).

The game is a bold and epic-scale turn-based strategy game that enables players to “create the greatest dynasty in world history.” The game, which is currently in the prototyping stages of development, is being helmed by Johnson and Dorian Newcomb (art director of Civilization V).

“As an avid Civilization IV fan and gamer, I couldn’t be more excited about 10 Crowns promise of refreshing the classic strategy genre,” said Bo Andersson-Klint, Starbreeze CEO. “I’m greatly looking forward to working with Mohawk on the game.”

“Everyone here at Mohawk is very excited to work with Starbreeze on 10 Crowns, going back to our game development roots to make a classic historical 4X strategy game with some important and radical innovations to the genre,” said Soren Johnson at Mohawk Games. “I look forward to sharing more about the design with the strategy game community and involving them in development as early as possible.”

    Got very excited when I red TBS but then my enthusiasm died down When 4x was mentioned.I’d love to see something closer to Heroes or Disciples.

    Just concept art so far but the premise is interesting. Hopefully they don’t devote themselves to boardgame mechanics like Civilization did with 5 and 6.
