What’s the only thing better than pay-what-you-want? Pay nothing! We’re giving away a limited edition ‘Kingmaker’ starter pack for Stronghold Kingdoms, as part of Humble Bundle’s latest main-page bundle. It is available right now at no charge and comes packed with over $20 worth of in-game items.
Turn the oceans red by waging bloody war across 38 tropical islands with new, changing sea conditions. Players must fight for a single kingly throne avoiding rough seas and the occasional hurricane as they attack, scout and trade across a medieval archipelago. Conditions change daily with tail winds, rough seas and violent storms either slowing or accelerating the progress of attacks, trade ships and scouting parties as they move between islands. Attacking forces may catch a strong tailwind and obliterate their enemies in the blink of an eye. Traders can double their earnings in a single day by all casting off while conditions are favorable. Scouts on the other hand could be so heavily delayed by storms at sea that, upon returning home, find their actions have sparked a conflict that has destroyed their home! Continue reading →

We are pleased to announce that Firefly Studios will be bringing Stronghold Kingdoms to Android devices!Last week we announced that Stronghold Kingdoms is coming to iPhone and iPad and by far the most frequently asked question from players was “What about Android?”
The Kingdoms team are thrilled to see that the Lords and Ladies of Stronghold Kingdoms are eager to take their castles along with them on the road. To clarify, we never intended to make this new mobile version of SHK exclusive to only iOS users. Since the beginning our plan has been to bring Kingdoms to both iOS and Android. We expect the Android version to arrive a little later than the iOS release, but this is purely down to the small size of our development team.
Stronghold Kingdoms on Android will of course offer all the same core features of the iOS, PC, and Mac versions. This includes the full game, new touchscreen controls and cross platform play with the millions of existing Kingdoms players.
Follow us on Twitter for updates on Android and iOS development, screenshots of the new mobile controls and video diaries.
