The Dragoness Command of the Flame

The Dragoness: Command of the Flame, a strategy game crafted by Crazy Goat Games and brought to market by publisher PQube, is preparing to spread its wings across multiple gaming platforms. The grand launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, and PC via Epic Games Store and GOG is planned for August 10, while Nintendo Switch enthusiasts will have to wait until September 7.

In The Dragoness: Command of the Flame, the player takes on a Heroes of Might and Magic-inspired quest, but with a roguelite spin. The setting is the tumultuous Drairthir Peninsula, a land beset by feuding dragon factions. The player is cast as a Commander, enlisted by The Dragoness herself, to strive for peace in this war-torn world.

The Dragoness

The game is not simply about conflict; it includes elements of city management. The player is thrust into the ruins of Niwenborh, tasked with restoring the once-mighty capital. The path to victory demands a formidable army of beasts, judicious management of resources, and readiness to face the dangers that lie in wait.

Battle is inevitable and requires strategic prowess and tactical insight. “The Dragoness: Command of the Flame” hosts challenging turn-based skirmishes that draw inspiration from the likes of Heroes of Might and Magic. Even defeat can be a stepping stone towards strength in the game’s roguelite adventures, where the peninsula’s evolving landscape promises resources, allies, artifacts, and foes.

In their role as Commander, players are not solely warriors but also caretakers and city planners. They will gather resources, oversee the wellbeing of their beasts, guide the resurgence of Niwenborh, and choose the trajectory of their progression. The game is rich in options, allowing for exploration of paths, collection of beasts, and selection of battles.

Note that The Dragoness Command of the Flame is already available on Steam. Below an overview.

ABOUT THIS GAME

A HOMM-inspired adventure with a roguelite twist. Embarking on an epic quest across the Drairthir Peninsula – a land ravaged by warring factions of Dragons – you take the role of a Commander, recruited by The Dragoness, in her bid to conquer and bring peace to the world.

Finding yourself in the ruined capital of Níwenborh, it’s down to you to rebuild this once-great city. Only by recruiting a powerful beast army and managing your resources will you be able to prepare yourself for the dangers that lie ahead – where only keen strategic thinking and tactical skill will see you emerge victorious.

In a classic combat system, great strength counts for nothing without solid tactics. Enter challenging, turn-based, HOMM inspired battles. As you lead your allied creatures to victory, use what you’ve learned about your enemies’ attacks to do your best to minimize your losses. As your beast army grows in numbers, experiment with unit types and skill synergies to find a playstyle that suits your strategic thinking – and forges the best path to success.

Your defeats will only serve to fuel your determination. Embark on roguelite adventures during which you will explore the ever-changing Drairthir Peninsula in search of vital resources, powerful creatures to add to your army, ancient artefacts to enhance your power, and enemies to crush. Each journey will unlock new beasts, skills and base upgrades. Don’t despair over your downfalls, as each time you will rise up stronger, blazing your own path through the hero progression system.

Your battle prowess alone might not be enough to save the world from succumbing to darkness. Prove your worth as The Dragoness’ Commander, by restoring Níwenborh and reinforcing its army. Gather resources, care for your beasts, manage the development of the capital and decide on the direction of your progress. In this world, your choices are everything: pick which paths to explore and beasts to collect; choose which fights are worth the effort and which should be avoided for now.
