About the game
Knights and Merchants can be described as a strategic economy simulation. In the main, the economics play a major role in this real-time action game. The player can manufacture different products, making use of numerous buildings and producer goods of the Middle Ages period. He can use his serfs to construct and maintain buildings and roads. The economical structuring is very specific. You manufacture finished products using various raw materials which go through your production processes. All these manufacturing systems are highly detailed and visually understandable, enabling fast and dependable control of your economy. All the graphics (with the exception of the landscape), are bitmaps, which are either "pixeled" or calculated using Autodesk's 3D MAX program. They are flexibly structured and merge perfectly with the light and shadow conditions of the corresponding background.
