Medieval City Builder Manor Lords Claims 3 Million Wishlists

Manor Lords is a medieval city builder by solo developer Slavic Magic (Greg StyczeĹ„) and publisher Hooded Horse and has reached a phenomenal milestone of 3 million wishlists on Steam. This impressive feat comes just days before the game’s Early Access launch on April 26th, 2024. Over the past weekend, Manor Lords surged in popularity, adding another 500,000 wishlist to now tip over the 3 million mark. Manor Lords is a strategy game that allows you to experience the life of a medieval lord. Grow your starting village into a bustling city, manage resources and production chains, and expand your lands through conquest.

“Slavic Magic has done amazing work,” said Hooded Horse CEO Tim Bender. “We’re honored and glad to be his publisher and help him realize his dream.” The Early Access version is fully playable and includes fleshed out medieval city building, resource management and a detailed combat experience.

First announced in 2020, Manor Lords has captivated players with its unique blend of real-time strategy and city-building. From laying the foundation for humble homes to overseeing a bustling marketplace, Manor Lords promises a deep and rewarding experience inspired by the art and architecture of late 14th century Franconia. The game’s consistent climb on the Steam wishlist charts is a testament to its appeal. Manor Lords recently surpassed popular titles like Hades 2 and Hollow Knight: Silksong to claim the coveted top spot.

This surge in interest can likely be attributed to a combination of factors. Firstly, Manor Lords offers a level of intricate detail rarely seen in city-builders. Players will be responsible for managing every aspect of their medieval town, from resource gathering and production to citizen happiness and defense. This depth provides a level of immersion that’s sure to enthrall strategy enthusiasts. Secondly, the fact that such a comprehensive experience is the work of a single developer adds a remarkable layer of accomplishment to the game’s appeal. Solo developer Slavic Magic has poured his heart and soul into Manor Lords, creating a world that feels rich and believable.

Manor Lords will release into early access for PC on April 26, 2024, via SteamGOGEpic Games Store, and will also be available day one on PC Game Pass (Game Preview).
