Story driven campaign


These are hard times for the Sacrum Imperium during the time of [Ægrotum Imperium]. War from outside dominates the empire and also the internal situation is not the best. The emperor is long past his prime and rumors do the rounds that a civil war is coming.
In these exceedingly dark times the nurse children of a powerful duke, Lennart and Neslin, need to stand their ground and prove worth what they have learned from their "uncle" to maybe save the fragile and weak realm from the worst.


Build your castles, manage your troops




[Ægrotum Imperium] is a real-time strategy game set in the High Middle Ages that focuses on building and supplying your own castle as well as defending it and besieging other's.
It is your choice how you build your castle! Do you like the easy to defend, but limited mountains? Then build a hilltop castle. Is the easy to supply, but vulnerable grassland more to your liking then nobody will hold you back to build a lowland castle. Do you prefer high and compact castles or the rather flat but huge ones? It is all up to you!
Every position and architectural style has its own weak spots and strengths. You just need to master them.
The buildup of an economy is versatile, but not unnecessarily complex and can be learned easily.

Soldiers can be equipped and grouped as you like. The balancing will be done as historically accurate as possible and sensible.
But next to the military and economy skills there is also diplomacy needed to win other lords over for your cause. Forming alliances and foster relationships is a key gameplay element.

During the campaign you return to your home castle quite often to extend it with the knowledge that you earned on your absence.


Skirmish Mode and Multiplayer


Besides the story mode you can play matches against or together with the lords from the main story and others. Train your skills or simply try new things. This is your playground, but watch out as your enemies will not simply enjoy the landscape.

The multiplayer will be part of the skirmish mode. Play with local friends or any person in the internet. Play in fixed teams or form them with your diplomacy skills. It is your choice.
Sadly, implementing a multiplayer mode is difficult and very time consuming so we will first finish the single player game.


98% moddable by nature


We love creativity and we will not limit yours! The game comes with the very same map and AI editors we use to create every single map, the AI lords and even the whole story mode.
The only restriction? You do not get the source code.


DRM free


The game comes with no copy protection. We believe that honourable players will buy the game and thus support us so that we can continue making good games or add more content to those already finished.
We also believe that someone who bought the game once should be able to play it on all of his computers without any annoying DRM complications.

Our goals for Ægrotum Imperium


Our goals are important things to make this game a success. In this section we will list up everything we will need and what it costs us to give you an inside view.

$5,000 - Costs to engage a gifted artist for the cutscenes and in-game graphics.
$6,000 - Costs to engage Sam Dillard as composer. You do not know Sam Dillard yet? Here are some samples: YouTube, OCRemix and homepage.
$3,000 - The budget needed for the PEGI and USK exams.
