About the Game


Welcome friends to The Battle of Polytopia, a unique turn-based strategy game involving strange lands and charismatic tribes, clever technologies, captivating magic where the ultimate goal is to rule the world. Obvs!


Scene: Enter the Square, the bizarre home planet of the Polytopians, a flat square-shaped landmass drifting in the space of an alternate dimension to ours. A relatively simple and curious folk that has a penchant for fighting, the Polytopians are 15 individual tribes spread out across the Square, each with their own characteristics, motivations, strengths and weaknesses. As a player, you will take on the role of the ruler of one of these tribes as you attempt to build your civilization in competition with the other tribes.

Will you choose to be the leader of the Xin-Xi, reserved yet adventurous traditionalists that are wary of change or outsiders? Perhaps the Hoodrick, who love archery, nature, mushrooms, and famed for their baked goods! Or maybe the Bardur, where the local tavern is their favorite place and Ullefurgh their drink choice, a delightful concoction of pine needles, hot water and rabbit fat. Deeeelicious!!

But beware of the Vengir, purple rhino-pig riding warriors who, in between bouts of pillaging, like to sharpen their swords and vacation at the misty Kithkga Boneyards. You really don’t want to get on their bad side!

{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/33366298/874df8268212932afc3f0f588fb2095347a7a3c5.png No one really remembers why the Hoodrick and the Bardur split apart so long ago, but this split formed one of the Square's most special and bitter inter-tribal rivalries. Ranging from brutal raids to petty displays of superiority, the Hood-Bard Rivalry shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Hello Polytopians, It's the Hoodrick Tribe Moon, a whole month dedicated to celebrating the Hoodrick, our favorite baked good-eating...

Hello, Polytopians! It’s time for Balance Pass 2! We’re making some big changes and we’d like to take some time to talk about them! Release notes for release 2.0.58 General Balance: -Increase income for clearing forest to 2* -Increase price of knight to 10* The change to forest chopping has been getting some mixed results, so we thought to get the best of both worlds by keeping tree chopping in Free Spirit so that tech power is more easily managed, but bringing it up to 2* for increased usefulne...
