Kingdombound is an upcoming action real-time strategy video game developed by Lazy Studios

The game was released on April 24th, 2020 on the Nintendo Switch, XBOX One, Playstation 4 and PC. The game is rated T by the ESRB for Violence, Blood and Gore and Mild Language. 

Plot

Kingdombound focuses on the ongoing fued between two kingdoms, the Red Kingdom of Arcandia, and the Blue Kingdom of Elytius. For generations the two families have absolutely hated eachother, and wished to obtain the other kingdom's most prized treasure to show how much better they are. The heirs to the thrones, King Maroon and Princess Maya, wish to continue the fight to obtain the treasure, doing so by hiring warriors, magic-users and assassins to help them steal the treasure. You, as one of the twelve classes, join this war, with the promise of fame and riches.  In the game's adventure mode, the Purple Kingdom, Darkenwald, ruled by the evil Lich, threatens to destroy everyone. The two kingdoms temporarily work together with the help of the player to defeat him.

Gameplay

Kingdombound is a top-view real-time strategy game with various aspects of action games. The player takes control of one of 12 main playable classes, part of one of the two kingdoms mentioned above. The player completes various objectives, based on the mode.

Basic Gameplay 

The player can use Move their character with the left control stick, Face a direction with the right control stick, and Aim an opponent with the ZL button to attack them more precisely. The player can also Jump with the button to go over small gaps or reach higher areas. 

The player can perform a basic Attack by pressing the ZR button, which changes in the player is aiming or not, along with three Abilities, which can be used by pressing the L, R, and X button. The attack and abilities that the player uses change depending on which class that they are playing as. With the B button, player can Grab objects like materials and bombs, Throw them, enter siege weapons to be launched, have troops follow them or stay in place, or revive recently dead allies.

Buildings

A large focus of Kingdombound is on Building. Buildings are objects that the player can place in certain modes to provide support in both offense and defense. To build an object, the player must gather materials. The game features three types of materials:

  • Wood: Wood can be collected from Lumber Mills. When working, a Lumber Mill generates one piece of wood per second.
  • Stone: Stone can be collected from Mines. When working, a Mine generates one stone every two seconds.
  • Crystals: Crystals can appear in two ways. Either killing 10 players, or killing 25 troops. Upon achieving that, a crystal is spawned where that last player or troop is killed, giving you a chance to grab it.

Though the player can hold up to 10 materials, players gain a speed debuff when they attempt to hold more than 3 materials (if the player is playing as a Pirate this material limit raises to 6 materials). Crystals have the weight of 3 materials. Lumber Mills and Mines will run out of materials if used too much, and require time to recharge.

Once you have materials, you can bring them to your base's storage bin. Once you have materials in your storage bin, you can finally start building. Buildings (with the exception of Siege Weapons) can only be built and placed in your territory (usually around your base and any points you've captures), or free territory (certain areas between you and your opponent's area that both of you can place buildings in). You gain more territory the more of the objective you complte. After some time, the building you've just created will sit there and be in operation. Buildings have health which can be depleted from enemy damage. Once a building is destroyed, it can't be recovered. Certain buildings also lose health overtime, and will be destroyed after time passes.

Siege Weapons

Siege Weapons are buildings designed with damage in mind. They can help support you with taking objectives, holding off groups, or destroying your enemy's gates. They are the only buildings that can be placed in enemy territory.

  • 5x Wood
  • 1x Stone
Poison Bomb Poison Bombs aren't as powerful as normal Bombs, but their explosions release a noxious gas that blinds anyone that touches it. They explode once thrown and after a certain amount of time passes. Can be used in conjunction with Cannons and Catapults.
  • 5x Wood

  • 15x Wood
  • 10x Stone

Defenses

Defenses are buildings designed with defense in mind. They are helpful for defending or castle or preventing your enemies from approaching your territory.

Building Description Materials
Wooden Barricade A barricade made of wood that serves as a wall against oncoming enemies. Direct contact with these barricades will cause some damage, and their cheap cost allows them to be built in large groups. However, fire can destroy them very easily.
  • 10x Wood
Stone Barricade A barricade made of stone that serves as a wall against oncoming enemies. Its larger health amount than the Wooden Barricade makes it more suitable for defense, though this barricade is more expensive than its wooden variant.
  • 10x Stone

  • 10x Wood

  • 5x Wood
  • 5x Stone

  • 10x Wood
  • 10x Stone
Ballista A large crossbow, the Ballista can cause rapid damage with a constant barrage of arrows. They are unable to automatically fire like troops, requiring that someone man it for it to cause damage. They also must be reloaded with wood, and have low health which makes them vulnerable to bombs. However, they have one of the most powerful damage of any thing in the game, making them a great way to deal with a massive push.
  • 12x Wood
  • 12x Stone

  • Gold: When players participate and finish in a match, they will earn Gold. Gold serves as the basic currency of this game, can be used to buy weapons in the Weapon Shoppe, or cosmetics in the Market. You earn more Gold the more you win in matches.
  • Experience: When players participate and finish in a match, they will earn experience. Once a player earns enough Experience Points, they will Level Up. This serves as a basic progress indicator, unlocking various things like new weapons and things in the Meetup Area. You earn more Experience the more you win in matches.
  • Ranking: When players participate and finish in a Ranked Match, their Ranking will be affected. Once a player earns a high enough ranking they will Rank Up. Similar to Experience, it serves as a progress indicator, it increases your chances of rarer items in the Market appearing. Your rank will go up if you win a Ranked Match, but go down if you lose. Your ranking determines what Rank you are in. Every player starts in Beginner's Rank. Raising you rank enough allows you to increase your rank. Rank up three times and you move onto a higher league, from Bronze, to Silver and finally to Gold.
  • Guild Points: When players win a round in Co-op, they earn Guild Points. The higher your guild points, the better prizes you will get.

Meetup Area

The Meetup Area serves as an area where travelers can meet and join the war between the two kingdoms. It serves as the game's main hub and features various things for the player to do.

Bulletin Board The Bulletin Board is the player's destination for joining online matches. When selecting the Bulletin Board, the player is given the option to join a random server, or select servers with preferences like certain modes and/or maps.
Ranked Board

Unlocked upon reaching Level 15, the Ranked Board allows players to join ranked matches. They feature several difference from normal matches:

  • Teams are limited to 6 players.
  • Players are limited to two of the same class per team (1 player for Paladin, Monk, Druid, Priest, Bard and Warlock). This is to emphasize team balance and stop players from using too powerful tactics (like having a team of only Berzerkers).
  • VS Lich is not an available game mode.
Battle Guild The Battle Guild allows the player to play matches offline, locally or wirelessly against CPUs and nearby players.
Guard Keep The Guard Keep, added in the Co-op Update, allows the player to play Co-op modes, working together with other players or friends to protect your castle from hordes of enemies. Completing matches will allow you to earn prizes.

Game Modes

Online Modes

The game features 10 online game modes at launch that the player can play. In online, up to 24 players can be playing at once, 12 players on each team. There are a few exceptions however.

  • In Ranked Matches, this is reduced to 12 players, 6 per team.
  • VS Lich reduces the number of players to 13, with one player as the Lich facing off against everyone else.

2 more modes (Treasure Plunder and VS Lich) were later added as free DLC.

Castle Defense

One team must defend their castle and treasure from the other team. The defending team has two outposts that, if taken control of, will open the gate into the castle. If the treasure is captured, the attacking team wins. If times runs out, the defending team wins.

Strategies (Offense) Strategies (Defense)
  • Be prepared for whatever the defending team is going to do. Make sure to use area-of-effect weapons against troops, and siege weapons against their defenses.
  • If you have enough firepower, you can destroy the enemy's gate. This is a great option if you don't have enough time or the enemy is low on defenses.
  • You can use catapults to launch yourself over enemy walls.
  • If the enemy takes control of your outposts, you can recapture them. It's recommended to do so since the door will open if all of the outposts are controled by the enemy.
  • Make sure your castle is well fortified if the enemy breaks in. Use barricades, trapdoors, and plenty of troops to take care of the enemies.
Castle War Both teams must defend their castle and treasure from eachother. Take control of the outposts to open the enemy gates to the castle. Capture the enemy's treasure to win, but don't let the other team capture yours.
Strategies
  • Strategies used in Castle Defense will also apply to Castle War.
  • Be sure that not too many of your team attack the castle all at once. Someone needs to stay behind in case the enemies attempt a sneak attack while you're gone.
Castle Control Two teams must fight to take control of the castle. Once one team has control, they will start to gain points. However, the other team can capture the castle by taking control of it, making the other team unable to gain points. Once a team reaches 100 points, they win. 
Strategies
  • Make sure your team has a good balance of offense and defense. You'll need somebody to defend the castle once you're done capturing it.
  • Make sure you grab some materials as well. You'll need barricades and other defenses once you have control of the castle.
  • Though gates and barriers don't need to be destroyed, cannons and catapults can still help kill your enemies and defend the castle.
  • If at least one enemy is inside the castle, points will not be gained. Kill them quickly to continue getting points.
Outpost Control Two teams must fight to take control of three outposts. The more outposts a team has, the more points they will produce. Once a team reaches 200 points, they win.
Strategies
  • Strategies used in Castle Control will also apply to Outpost Control.
  • Always be aware of the state that your outposts are in. If an outpost isn't being defended, that means the enemy can obtain it and get more territory to build stuff and attempt to gain control of the other outposts.
Escort One team must escort their wagon to the end of the map while another team must prevent them from doing so. If the wagon reaches a checkpoint, the time increases. If the wagon makes it to the end, the attacking team wins, but if time runs out, the defending team wins.
Strategies (Offense) Strategies (Defense)
  • Warriors, Berzerkers, Mages and Rogues push the wagon twice as fast as other classes.
  • Defensive classes are useful for protecting the wagon from being stopped, as if one enemy is near the wagon it will stop.
  • Though troops can't help push the wagon, they can help with distracting the enemies or defending the wagon.
  • If no enemies are pushing the wagon for some time, the wagon will go backwards.
  • You can't place barricades on the wagon trail, so don't even try.
  • Placing trapdoors with bombs near the near the path is a great way of creating an almost undodgable trap.
  • Troops can help distract your enemies, and drive them away from the wagon.
Escort Race Each team has to escort a wagon to the end before their opponent escorts their wagon to the end. The team that escorts their wagon to the end wins.
Strategies
  • Strategies used in Castle Control will also apply to Outpost Control.
  • Have a good offense and defense. It's integral for your team to multitask both pushing the wagon and preventing the enemy from pushing theirs.
Capture the Flag Each team must capture the enemy flag, steal it, and take it back to their base to earn points, all while defending your own flag from being stolen. If you are killed while holding the flag, a team member can pick it up, but if is left for 1 minute, it will go away. Once time runs out, the team with the most points wins.
Strategies (Offense) Strategies (Defense)
  • Faster classes like Berzerkers and Rogues can be helpful in grabbing the flag.
  • If a teammate dies while they are holding the flag, you can grab the flag and bring it with you.
  • Barricades, bombs and ballistas are helpful in defending your flag.
  • If an enemy has stolen your flag, kill them and grab your flag back to put it back into place.
  • Killing an enemy by pushing them off a cliff or other one-hit-kill areas will cause the flag to go back to your base, without even needing to grab it.
Siegeball Each team must grab a ball that randomly spawns on the map and throw it into the enemy goal to earn points. If you are killed while holding the ball, someone else can grab it. Once time runs out, the team with the most points wins.
Strategies
  • Strategies used in Capture the Flag will also apply to Siegeball. Grabbing the ball from a dead enemy will put in your hands, giving you the chance to throw it into the enemy's goal.
  • You can't attack while holding the ball, as attack will have you throw the ball. Always be weary of that.
  • If you have the ball and are about to die, you can pass it to an ally so the enemy can't grab it from you.
Deathmatch Both teams must compete to get 50 points before the other team does. You get one point for killing an enemy. Once a team get 50 points, they win. Building is disabled in this mode.
Strategies
  • Try not to get killed. You don't want to be giving the enemy free points.
  • Reviving an ally will cause your enemies to lose a point so reviving is reccomended (especially as a Priest since they revive faster than other enemies).
Battle Royale Each team must fight to be the last to survive. In this mode, if you are killed, you are eliminated. Once every member of the enemy team is dead, you win. Building is disabled in this mode.
Strategies
  • Strategies used in Deathmatch will also apply to Battle Royale, however, with higher stakes since you don't respawn after you are killed. Reviving is crucial in this mode.
Treasure Plunder

Added in the Summer Update, each team must grab as much gold as possible and bring it to their base to earn points, while defending them from the enemy. Gold are scattered around the map, and if you are killed you will drop any gold you were holding. Once time runs out, the team with the most points wins.

Strategies
  • Strategies used in Capture the Flag will also apply to Treasure Plunder. Grabbing gold from dead enemies allows you to steal them and bring them with you.
  • You can carry up to 20 gold.
  • You can steal gold from enemy base by going near it. The longer you stay in the enemy base, the more gold you'll steal. Just be careful, as if enemies get into the capture area, you will stop stealing gold from them.
  • Look out for Treasure Chests! Grab these and bring them to your base and you'll earn 10 points! However, it's presence is always made known on the map, so it's a race to see which team will get it first!
VS Lich Added in the Halloween Update, a team of players must face off against one, randomly selected player taking control of the Lich. In this mode, if you are killed, you are eliminated. If the players defeat the Lich, they win. If the Lich kills everybody, he wins. Building is disabled in this mode.
Strategies (Team) Strategies (Lich)
  • Strategies used in Battle Royale will also apply to VS Lich.
  • At the start you are given a 1 minute period before the Lich appears. Use it to your advantage.
  • The Lich is very powerful and has a lot of health, but you'll want to avoid very large groups as they can drain your health quite fast.
  • During the 1 minute start period, the player can move around and look at the team, but cannot interact with them. You can use this to your advantage to learn what the team is doing and come up with a strategy that counters theres.

Co-Op Modes

Accessed from the Guard Keep, the game features 2 co-op mode. Up to 6 players work together in a single match.

Monster War

Work together to protect your castle from being destroyed by hordes of AI-controlled enemies. Survive for six waves and you and your group wins. Wave three and six will have you fight against a mini-boss enemy.

Ranked War Only available once you have enough Guild Points, Ranked War is a harder version of Monster War, with more dangerous and powerful enemies. Wave three and six will have you fight against multiple mini-bosses.

Adventure Mode

Adventure Mode serves as the game's main singleplayer mode, with the player adventuring through the Ancient Valley to defeat monsters and defeat the evil Lich. Accessed from the Mysterious Portal, the mode plays as a beat-em-up as you adventure through various levels, taking out enemies and completing objectives. The Adventure Mode somewhat takes the role of a tutorial as well, as it allows the player to learn of various mechanics.

Characters

Classes

Kingdombound features 12 main playable classes. Each class has different stats, weapons and skills to make them unique from eachother. Classes are put into one of three categories: Offense, Defense and Support. Each class has a male and female variant, with each class' color changing depending on which team they are on.

Offense

Offense classes are best suited towards taking down objectives, and causing as much damage as they can.

Cosmetics are split between Hats and Clothing. Certain hats and clothing, known as Sets, when worn together may give characters special effects or changes to their taunts.

Trivia

  • This is the third original game series that CrakaboLazy4090 has created, after KillGames and the Constructinator series.
  • Kingdombound is inspired by many games.
    • The gameplay is similar to MOBAs like League of Legends, though is primarily inspired by Fat Princess.
    • The various game modes, story, unique classes, and variety of weapons is inspired by Team Fortress 2.
    • The Meetup Area is inspired by Splatoon and Splatoon 2.
  • All of the characters in Kingdombound are free to use! As long as you keep them in character, I'd be glad to see these characters in any of the crossovers or umbrella games you want to have them in.

Development

  • Kingdombound went through many, many revisions before becoming what it is now today. It was everything from a Paper Mario-styled RPG, to a tactical RPG, to a more traditional MOBA.
  • When the game was thought up as an arena-style game, the creators experimented with a more 3D, FPS camera style. This felt weird in the creators eyes as it would weird having a game focusing almost entirely on melee combat feeling like an FPS.
  • Among the various character designs, the Slime is the oldest and most consistently appearing of them.
  • The amount of playable characters was experimented around, from 9 to even 36. 12 was decided as a good number since it would give the game a way to highlight each of the characters.
  • Warriors, Berzerker, Paladins, Hunters, Rogues, Wizards and Priests appeared in the game's earliest incarnations. The Druid, Monk, Warlock, Pirate and Bard were added later on to add more gameplay variety.
  • The game was originally going to have only 7 troops (Slime, Orc, Harpy, Goblin, Golem, Mandrake and Mermaid). The Bomb Fairy, Naga and Nekon (originally the Dragling) were added to create variety.

Classes & Troops

  • Of the characters, the Berzerker, Dragon, Druid, Naga and Mandrake are the creator's favorite designs.
  • The Warrior, Slime and Nekon are considered the game's mascots.
  • Every class in the game is confirmed to be human, with the exception of the Hunter who is an elf.
  • There were two classes that were scrapped or tweaked during development.
    • Peasant: The Peasant was a support class. They would have been horrible in combat, but would be able to quickly gather materials to create buildings. Their abilities would later be given to the Pirate, who was originally just going to be a ranged offensive class.
    • Mermaid: The Mermaid (Merman if male) was a spear-wielding defensive class. The class was scrapped very early in development, the spear was given to the Monk (who originally used your fists as weapons) and the Mermaid would later appear as a spawned troop.
    • Vampire: The Vampire appeared in very early versions of the game. It was not really known how they would have played. They would later be replaced with the Warlock.
    • Samurai: The Samurai was a katana-wielding offensive class. The class, alongside the Sorcerer and an undecided third class, were considered to appear as part of an update, however, because the developers didn't want to mess with the balance of the game, they were scrapped. Their playstyle wasn't developed at the time, so it isn't known how they would have played.Their weapon, the Katana, would later become an unlockable weapon from the Warrior.
    • Sorcerer: The Sorcerer was an ice wielding defensive class. Similar to the Samurai, they were going to be added in an update, but the creators didn't want to mess with the game's balance. They would have been introduced with the Freeze status effect, slowing down enemies and preventing them from escaping. The Tome of Ice, one of the Wizard's unlockable weapons, would have been similar to how they would have played to an extent.
  • Several classes had their abilities changed during development:
    • The game originally never had the ability to aim, so abilities like Holy Shield and Fireball were originally abilities. Aiming was primarily added to bring diversity to each classes' moveset.
    • The Warrior originally had the ability to Shield attacks, similar to the Paladin but much smaller. This was removed as it didn't really fit the Warrior's offensive playstyle, and to make room for a more diverse moveset.
    • The Warrior also originally had Power Slash, a powerful close-ranged slash. It was removed to give Warrior a more diverse moveset.
    • Firestorm was originally a large area of fire rather than a trail. It was changed due to how much damage it could do.
    • The Rogue was originally given the ability to climb walls. This was scrapped due to being too powerful.
    • The Rogue originally had the abilities Sabotage, allowing them to instantly destroy buildings, and Disguise, allowing them to disguise as an enemy player. These were changed primarily to make the Rogue more of an offensive fighter.
    • The Mummies that could be summoned by the Warlock with the Rotting Scythe were originally going to be a Giant Skeleton. However, because they act differently from the normal Skeleton, they were changed to make them more distinct.
    • The Druid originally had the ability Etherial Form, allowing him to become invincible for a short time but be unable to attack enemies. It was replaced with Tendril Trap to make Druid more of an effective fighter.
    • The Druid was originally going to be a support class. However, when Etherial Form changed to Tendril Trap, their moveset became much more damage oriented, not fitting the support role. They were swapped with the Warlock, who was originally a defensive class.
  • From fastest to slowest, the speed of the classes are: Rogue, Bard, Berzerker, Monk, Hunter, Warrior, Priest, Druid, Pirate, Wizard, Warlock, Paladin, Dragon
    • This list also affects the time that class is carried by a Harpy, with the Rogue being the longest and the Dragon being the shortest.
  • The Female Monk underwent a redesign during development. This was primarily done because the creators, overtime, didn't really like their old design.
  • Early on, the Dragon was originally a more, traditional wyvern rather than the more humanoid dragon featured in the game. They would have been a support troop, attacking from above and being able to carry players and items across the map. While this could be done when the game was 3D, when the game was switched to top-down, it made them hard to balance and work. They were scrapped for some time, before becoming transformations for the Monk, prompting their change in design.
  • The Bard was one of the hardest classes to create costumes for, since the male and female variants have such drastic changes in appearence.
  • The Bard was almost scrapped from the game, however, according to the developers, "With all of these other standard RPG classes, it felt a bit weird not having any sort of bard in the game." Before he was finally kept, the Druid would have had a similar playstyle, buffing nearby allies.
  • Several troops were considered to appear or changed during development. These include:
    • Warg: Replaced with the Orc as the balanced melee troop. They'd later appear as an enemy in Adventure Mode.
    • Orc: Originally served as the game's tanky melee troop, but was replaced with the Golem.
    • Golem: Went through the most changes of all of the troops. Originally a ranged tank that launched crystals from its back, it's ability changed to being able to breath fire, before turning into a melee-based tank.
    • Succubus: Was originally added as the fireball-launching troop. Was replaced with the Naga. They'd later appear as an enemy in Adventure Mode.
    • Dragling: Originally served as the buffing troop. Was replaced with the Nekon.
  • The creators added the Slime's "ears" to make them more recognizeable from other slimes in other video games.
  • The Bomb Fairies were redesigned during the game's development to give them a cuter design. Their original design had a more bug-like design, with their skin being red/blue (depending on the team).
  • The Nekons were inspired by the Felynes from the Monster Hunter series.
  • According to the creators, the Ghost's wearing a fake cloak and head. Their actual body is the wisp.

Other Characters

  • King Maroon and Princess Maya are named after different shades of red and blue respectively.
  • Princess Maya apparently hates being called a queen because it makes her feel old.
  • Though several races and creatures were considered, Milo was decided to be a Nekon since it would sort of fit the personality of an initially cute but sly and greedy salesman.
  • The Lich is inspired by Merasmus from Team Fortress 2.
  • The Lich was originally called the Necromancer. This was changed to the Lich because it was seen as a more powerful title.

Modes

  • Some game modes were scrapped during development.
    • Free-for-all versions of Battle Royale and Deathmatch was considered to appear in the game. They were scrapped since it went against the team-based gameplay.
    • A scrapped game mode called Capture the Dragon was originally going to appear in the game. It was a free-for-all mode inspired by Juggernaut modes of other shooting games, with players being tasked with grabbing onto a dragon and using it to kill everyone else. If the dragon's health is reduced to zero, the player riding it was killed and someone else could grab onto it. It was removed because it went against the team-based gameplay. The creators ended up adding the Dragon as a playable character instead, and this mode would later inspired the VS Lich game mode.
  • VS Lich was originally not going to feature the Lich, instead featuring a character known as the Juggernaut. The Juggernaut was scrapped early in development of this mode, as the developers loved the idea of making the Lich a playable character.
  • VS Lich is primarily inspired by the Juggernaut game mode from the Call of Duty games, and VS Saxton Hale, a community-made game mode from Team Fortress 2.
  • Treasure Plunder was originally going to be Present Plunder. This was changed to remove the Christmas theme and allow it to become available at all times.
  • Treasure Plunder is inspired by Clam Blitz from Splatoon, and Robot Destruction (a scrapped mode) from Team Fortress 2.
