Developer's Note:

After several months of development, polishing and exchanging ideas with many great players, reviewers and sponsors, we are finally able to release The Great Siege on Newgrounds.

The game features a great combination of impressive defense gameplay, sharp graphics, competitive balance and immersive theme music. The building system in the game pays tribute to Heroes of Might and Magic III, one of my personal favorite, while the battle system includes elements such as the catapult, tank transformation, and traps that make the gameplay more dynamic without being overwhelmingly complex. The Great Siege is generally a very simple game but it has a subtle depth of strategy that embraces many possibilities.

it was my great pleasure to work with Selcuk and his group on the original music score for The Great Siege. The amount of time they've put into the works and the creative energy and inspiration they brought into this game through their music are incredible. Every music track is not only perfectly fitting to the game's theme, but also elevates the atmosphere of the game to another level.

Above all, I really hope you guys will enjoy this game.

Let's keep PLAYING and keep in touch.

A little less than awesome, actually but i cant think of the word for it...anyway its a really fun game that is really fun to play after you're actually able to hire decent fighters instead of those piece of shit footmen who die in one hit...and do not waste ur time on that luminex guy, who's the hero...cuz he blows!!!

It was a Good Siege

Though the game was very linear and lacked a story to move the game along, I really enjoyed this game. Felt the game moved at a good pace and hope to see a sequel or a similar game thats more story driven. Good job. PEACE.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


it was a good idea but why ruin a game like this by making the boss fights so hard theres no point in to keep trying at the 4th boss i mean come on what the fuck i also like how it takes forever to get some stone too its the only way to really anything and it takes forever
