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.
