Castles

Castles is a strategy game with building simulation overtones that focuses on the design of medieval castles. The goal is to build an invincible interconnected system of fortresses that stretches across eight strategic Celtic lands (full campaign mode). Three-castle and single castle campaigns are also available. In a full campaign you must build a self-sustaining castle in the first territory and then withstand the inevitable attack by an enemy force. If the defense is successful, settlers will build a nearby town and trade with Celts who eventually become dependent on you for goods and services. Expansion into a neighboring province naturally follows and the process is repeated, culminating ultimately in a united kingdom.

Interplay Productions, Inc. was founded in Southern California in 1983 with Brian Fargo as president, and three programmers, Jay Patel, Troy Worrell and Bill Heineman. They released many hit games over the course of the 90's including Earthworm Jim, Fallout 1 & 2 and baldurs gate before going bankrupt in 2005. They resurfaced in 2007, but most of their intellectual property has been sold off, most notably the sale of the Fallout licence to Bethesda.

No longer abandonware

What does it mean ? This game is being actively sold again.
Thanks to success of abandonware pages and interest in old games some game development companies (or what was left of them) sold rights to old titles to companies like Steam or GOG,
which are porting old games to new platforms and selling them again. Thats why - for this game - you won't find link to download anymore.
You can filter out this games by selecting "Only free and downloadable games" in top navigation bar.
Via buy button you can buy this game from one such seller. This button is provided solely for comfort of people interested in this game and we get no financial or other benefit from doing so (nor liability for the fact that this game will work on your new operating system).
