Developed by ex-Command & Conquer guys, Conan Unconquered is an RTS where you setup base, build defenses and then fend off waves of enemies. The game is heavily inspired by They Are Billions, and it shows. It has a lot of the same ideas as They Are Billions, and sets them in the Conan universe. While building your base and army, you also set out to find resources and hunt down monsters in order to find upgrades for your base and army. The game can also be played in co-op which makes for a significantly more fun experience, since you can split tasks among co-op buddies.

Build your stronghold and assemble an unconquerable army to survive the savage hordes of Hyboria. Wave after wave of increasingly more difficult enemies will rush at your gates and you will need to manage resources, research new technologies to advance your defenses, and recruit an ever-growing army if you are to save survive utter destruction.
You can choose to play the game entirely alone in single-player, but Conan Unconquered can also be enjoyed in full two-player co-op allowing for a truly unique, shared multiplayer experience. Players share a base where both can freely construct new buildings and amass an army to reach their common goal.
The enemy hordes will keep coming at you and how long you can resist the invasion depends entirely on your ability to build your stronghold and lead your army. Gameplay is real-time, but you can also pause at any time to issue commands and start construction of new buildings. Battles will be bloody and savage with players having to deal with anything from fires raging through their stronghold to piles of corpses spreading death and disease.
The savage horde is at your gates. Will you fall or will you remain unconquered?
