EarthRoyale is a free indie map royale game for Mac devices where you click a button to start random events across the globe. Nations will make or break alliances, sign new agreements, or attack each other based on a chance system. If you want a real war shooting experience, try Rust, Call of Duty 2 or Battlefield 1942.
Each country or nation has a specific colour based on alliances. Every click of the button makes a year go by, in which anything can happen based on the random chance game system. You won’t have any control over the events, and replaying EarthRoyale will have a different result.
Random events per turn
EarthRoyale relies on a random game simulator system more than actual gameplay. You won’t run around on any surfaces or take out your weapons to shoot the enemy. Instead, you’ll click a button to run a turn to see what happens. The text at the top reveals any significant events, such as new alliances made or nations attacking each other.
Since it’s based on chance, no two games are the same. The developer has random percentages built into EarthRoyale, which means some events happen more than others. You can end the game at any point and start over.
Changing colours and sequences
As nations join forces or separate, you’ll notice the colours changing on the map. The country borders remain the same, but it’s fascinating to see how each neighbour will respond to the other. Also, events aren’t always the same, and some are more negative than another.
There’s also a chance that a natural disaster will happen. For instance, a flood can wipe out several countries. Part of the algorithm is how that nation will respond to the flood, depending on if they survive. They’ll either rebuild, or a different country will take the land once the disaster is over.
Watch the world change
EarthRoyale may not have any actual gameplay elements, but it’s still interesting to watch the events unfold. Every turn holds something new, and you can keep clicking for as long as you want without it ending. If you’re not happy with how events are unfolding, you simply have to start over.
This game mechanic is more for idle purposes, but it’s the gateway towards other developers possibly using the system. Players may become bored after a few hours of simply watching events happen.
