F.A.Q

What is Fortune’s Favor?

Fortune’s Favor is an 1- 8 player PC real-time strategy game that is centered around dynamic government, religious, environment based, and strategic military decisions.

How was the name chosen?

The goddess Fortuna is the Roman god for luck and prosperity. This game features many moving parts and it is only with great skill, and Fortune’s Favor, that you will come out victorious.

What time period is FF set in?

In order to maintain the scope and pacing we desire, we have decided to keep the typical age advancement to the Neolithic Age up through the Medieval Age. These ages allow for the game’s military, political, and geographical mechanics to shine the best.

Is there a feature list available?

There will be. Until then, it is TBA.

Where can I find the game’s road map?

We will share a short-term version of our internal roadmap very soon. Until then, check out our monthly recaps, join our discord, and follow us on social media!

Will there be X faction in the game?

We’re taking a step away from factions in the traditional sense. In other RTS games, a faction serves two purposes. The first is to give one or more abilities to that player that they otherwise wouldn’t have. The second is purely an aesthetic difference in building styles and sometimes units as well.

Instead, we are going with an entirely separate system. Initially, we plan to keep the aesthetics to an overall “European” look; primarily Western and Mediterranean Europe. Although we would like to expand to other regions in the future, our immediate goal is to get one aesthetic completed. The faction trait system is being scrapped instead for a “Traditions” system. These are unlocked in our tech tree. Here, it is up to the player to decide whether or not to expand their culture by adding another tradition to their people. Each player can have a maximum of two traditions. These traditions can alter everything from the attrition taken by military units in certain biomes, to getting certain units cheaper and training them faster. It will all depend on the player’s preferred style of play along with the geographical circumstances they find themselves in.

Will there be modding?

Once the bulk of the game is completed we would love to create map editing as well as other mod tools.

How many maps will Fortune’s Favor have?

Currently there are seven maps planned. However, this number will likely be expanded upon as each of these maps are very large.

What are the minimum and recommended system requirements?

We are currently working on the Windows version of the game, but we would like the game to be playable on Macs and Linux OS as well.

Minimum Specs:

-OS: Windows 7 64 Bit
-Processor: Intel i7-8550U

Where should I go if I have a question or suggestion about the game?

Our discord is a great way to get in touch with us (the developers) as well as the community. Discord: https://discord.gg/mgyeYVN

How much will to cost on release?

This will depend on the amount of stretch goals we are able to reach.

How can I support it?

We want to avoid creating a crowd funding campaign before we have a functioning single player. So until then, the best way to support us is to spread the word and keep active on our website, social media accounts, or our discord!
