Our Score: 7/10
Medieval Dynasty is a survival RPG where you play as a young man who has fled from war and wants to take control of his life. Developer Render Cube has created quite an interesting game that mixes a lot of survival, crafting, and building elements together.
Survival and crafting games are aplenty. If you’re a fan of the genre you know that there are so many games in this genre. Ranging from being quite uninspired and boring, all the way up to some of the most fun experiences. So where does Medieval Dynasty stack up? Thankfully, it creates its own spot.
What is Medieval Dynasty
As the name suggests, Medieval Dynasty is all about starting a dynasty in the medieval age. As an inexperienced and poor man, you need to climb your way to the top. You’ll start off by just taking care of yourself but as the game goes on you’ll be taking care of an entire settlement and its people.
The settlement will need resources to grow and prosper. Which is where your skills as a leader will come into play. You need to gather resources, hunt for food and craft equipment that will help your community. The better your skills, the more safe and prosperous the settlement.
World of Quests
The game features four seasons. And with each season comes its own challenges and requirements. The harsh summers can be hard but how will you rise to the occasion when the icy winter rolls around. You will be challenged quite a bit and how you respond is up to you since this is a role-playing game.
The game has chapters and questlines for you to follow. Or if you would rather explore, you can do that too. But keep in that the main aim of the game is building a dynasty. Which means you’ll need to have an heir to take your place and continue your legacy.
Visuals and Sound Design
The world of Medieval Dynasty is a vibrant one. There’s a lot of variety on show here, especially with the various seasons. Every season is distinct from the other and makes the world feel alive and different.
Most survival games tend to either go hard on a unique art style or on realism. The game has found a good middle ground between the two and delivers modern visuals without requiring insane hardware.
The sound design is also great here and immerses you into the world. This is important for an RPG because if this wasn’t the case, you would find yourself getting pulled out very quickly.
Medieval Dynasty is an engaging and fun open-world RPG survival game. It manages to leave its own mark in a genre that is oversaturated. If you’re looking for a game that has a similar feel to Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing, you will enjoy this game quite a bit. With developers who are very active, the game has quite a bright future ahead.
Medieval Dynasty is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
