We’re partnering with Polish game dev creative house, Covenant.dev, to bring Gord to PC.
Gord is a single-player, dark fantasy strategy game inspired by Slavic folklore. In the world of Gord, you will lead the Tribe of Dawn as they strive to establish new settlements and explore eerie forbidden lands, which interacting with horrific creatures and deities.
You’ll need to complete quests to grow the tribe’s settlements (known as ‘gords’) and fortify these to protect from invaders while managing a populace whose personal stories, familial ties and mental well-being can have devastating impact on the survival of their communities.
