Fields of Fire is a strategic city building game simulation with war elements focused primarily on managing and properly deploying resources. The game was originally published in German language and has been translated into English. It's best compared to games like Age of Empires or Civilization.

SYNOPSIS:

A year has passed since the great war that divided the races of the country and saw the Demons take power, nearly bringing humankind to its extinction. Since that day the Demons’ Fortress has floated ominously above the sea, an ever present threat. An arms race between the subdued races foreshadows another great war, which promises to challenge the balance of power yet again. As the last human mercenary, it falls to you to take up leadership in your people's darkest hour. You must defend your realm and ensure the survival of humankind.

FEATURES:
• Create many different buildings and other objects such as Residences, Watchtowers, Barracks, Forests and many more. Some of them can also be upgraded.
• Train Defensive Units and Offensive Units to either protect your own buildings or to destroy enemy buildings.
• Train Mineworkers, Lumberjacks, Blacksmiths, and Farmers to provide food for your population and to gather important resources.
• Buy and sell resources at your own Marketplace or trade stuff with traveling merchants.
• Turn-based day-system.
• Challenge your luck on numerous gambling games.
• Beat up against 4 autonomous, CPU-controlled enemies and make them your subjects.
• Destroy the Demons´ Fortress and bring back peace to the whole country.
• Find the 3 hidden bonuses, collect all 50 achievements and become the God of the world.

It looks interesting, I think I'll try it out (maybe even the german version :p )
I was just wondering: Why didn't you translate the title of the game? A german name for an english game sounds a bit weird to me ;)

If I knew for sure that people would rather avoid playing a game with a German title, I would've to change it. At the moment I don't know which other title to go with ("the 5th path" doesn't sound that good). But maybe something better comes up, so let's see.

Why not call it "Walking the 5th Path"? That way you have an interesting English title, should you decide to go that route.

Seriously, the more I think about it, the more I like it. xD Maybe I'll do a new Titlescreen if I have a little more time.

Announcement:
The game is already done
but before the release, I'm still looking for proofreaders to help me correct the grammar and expressions.

I've added a list of all the 50 achievements you can get in the game. Whoever wants to hunt them all, this will help. The game will be released as soon as possible. Stay tuned.

I hate to rain on your parade, but it looks like you're using some ripped resources in your game. That kind of stuff isn't allowed if you intend on releasing it commercially, or even just on this website since the site could be held liable for any games with ripped content on them.

The clouds are from Chrono Trigger, the little stone house is from ActRaiser, trees are from Final Fantasy 6, Shrine from Final Fantasy 5, not sure what the ship is from and so on. Not sure where you got the tile sheets from, but they are pretty tainted. I am letting you know so that you don't get into any legal trouble, or any trouble here on these forums.

@djDarkX: Wow, the game has been around for several years and no one ever told me so far. If you're right, as I haven't played any of these games you've mentioned, I'll need to use Google to find out what resources may come from other games so I can replace them. Thank you very much for telling me. The background is made with a graphics software. What exactly do you mean with tainted?

Tainted meaning they are filled with lots of resources from other commercial games, like various SNES games as I listed. I mean, I'm glad you've never gotten in trouble, but I came across your game last night and figured I should let you know. Better late than never. :)

True that. :)

Now that I know, before releasing the game, I'll most likely replace all the building graphics, except for those coming from the 2k3 RTP; just to be sure. Thanks again for letting me know.

Hi, folks. So what do we think about ripped graphics?

Well, I don't like ripped graphics.

You don't like ripped graphics as well.

In fact, we all don't like ripped graphics!

Well, I took three days off to replace the buildings with legally usable ones. Since I had no clue about which graphics were taken from other games, I've decided to just replace them all! It was a proper piece of work editing these graphics to fit into my game, but in my eyes, the result definitely pays off; the overall picture looks much better now. I don't regret this step and I'm quite happy that I decided to go it.



(Well, it seems like I have to edit this RTP-ship quite a lot to make it not stand out that much in comparison to the rest.)





Graphics:

• Enterbrain
• Adam Saltsman
• Beast (opengameart)

I hope you like this Update. Let me know what you think about the new look of the buildings. :)

Der 5. Pfad becomes Fields of Fire

I finally came up with an idea for an English title for the game which I'm ok with. Der 5. Pfad will be Fields of Fire from now on.



But that's not all. As said in my last post, many of the graphics in the game have recently been replaced during the development process.

In the meantime, much more stuff happened. Unfortunately, I've lost 2 or 3 weeks of progress because I accidentally replaced my backup folder (as well as the original folder) with an outdated version. Now I have to do several things again, but that's not the end of the world. That said, bad luck won't stop me from completing this game!

As for the positive things, I can say that proofreading is going quite well. I've also gotten some suggestions for improving certain game mechanics and I'll therefore work on this a bit longer as planned.

Hope you like what you see. Stay tuned!

Just a few more screens showing some of the features of the game. Enjoy.

Afraid that you can't provide enough Food for your population? Have you ever thought about leaving that task to some harpy sisters who recently opened a delivery service? Well, why not.



Like ressource collecting quests? Nah? Okay, here they are anyway. The Arcane Collectors give quests to worthy adventurers. It's about collecting as many resources as possible that they can sell across the sea. Maybe they'll give you something valuable in exchange?



Can you go to war, but in a smart way? Of course. Just destroy the empty lots of your opponents before they can build upon them. Or destroy their Forests and Mines before they're able to even purchase them. Lack of resistance makes it easier for you to win.





The full game will be out soon. Stay tuned.

This looks like a lot of fun.
I like this sort of 2d strategy thing you're doing.
