Stronghold demo released

Castle building strategy game gets internet debut

The eagerly anticipated demo of castle building sim Stronghold has finally been released, with the full game currently due out in the UK on Friday 12th October. Available to download from Gigex, the demo weighs in at a modest 57Mb and features two levels from the game to sink your teeth into. Developed by veterans of the Caesar series of city building sims, Stronghold sets you the task of designing, building and besieging medieval castles, taking the player from 11th century Norman keeps to spectacular Edwardian fortifications. With a mixture of sim and real-time strategy elements, not to mention a healthy dose of boiling oil, it should be well worth a look if you fancy something a little different.
