Order Or My Life As A 16-Bit King

By Spencer . May 20, 2009 . 6:33pm

imagePoisoft has a curious looking game called Oudaa or Order. The WiiWare title puts players in the role of a king. From the comfort of your throne you dispatch heroes and build your kingdom.

 

You could storm into other countries and declare military might. Or use diplomatic options to avoid war. Kings can ally with countries, even the antagonistic demon country by imposing embargos on healing herbs. For 1,000 Wii Points ($10) Order sounds like a pretty deep game.

 

Since events are described with words and you expand your infrastructure through menus Order is also a text heavy game. Even though Poisoft is a new developer (they were formed in 2008!) a game this large looks big enough for a niche publisher like Xseed to pick up.

    The order / “ouda” pun in the title is very clever. I love when they do that!

      I know! It’s almost too clever unless they had early localization help….

    Sooooo…it’s sorta a 2D MLAAK?

    • MadMirko

      I would say that most of the MLAAK mechanics are in this game, but quite a bit more, too.

      has the original Famitsu article translated, and from that I am reminded of Koei’s 16bit era strategy games. Foreign policies to make, armies to build, countries to invade, leaders to assassinate…

      That and freedom of choice whether to be the good guy and battle the Demon Lord trying to take over the world, or ally with him, support his armies and make life hard for the heroes, even capturing them and turning them over to the bad guy.

    I love 8bit 16 bit graphics so much!
