Under The Yoke Released!
« on: March 28, 2024, 09:24:04 AM »

Under the Yoke, the medieval peasant life simulator, is now available on Steam! The game covers over 250 years of rural English history, following a family through generations of forestry, crop rotation, crafting, love, personal and legal interactions, and more besides. Coming from Exilian member and Coding Medieval Worlds 4 guest speaker Priory Games, this is bound to be a great play for historic gaming fans who want to get down and dirty with medieval survival and village life.

The game has mechanics showing not just the farming side of peasant life but the importance of community and specialisations in shaping people's place in the medieval world. This includes elections to certain village roles, a representation of the legal status of your particular peasants, and the core struggle for subsistence food and enough surplus to pay your feudal rents. Dynamic events can provide major system shocks, with famines draining food storage rapidly but also potentially providing an opportunity for profit when food prices rocket. You can plant crops, learn recipes, work out the advantageous way to manage a medieval family, and discover much more about your world through pop-up events as the years roll by.

Why not check it out, and let us know how your peasant avatars fare through the cold winters of twelfth and thirteenth century England? The village awaits!


The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...
