Premise[edit | edit source]
Initially lead by a light trail, the Monarch explores the land and its many mysteries. By using the coins they find, the Monarch establishes a humble campsite that will slowly grow into a thriving kingdom.
Soon enough, the Monarch finds out the reason why there are so many ruins around (hence the maxim "Nothing Lasts...") and prepares to also defend the kingdom from constant attacks by a dark and greedy enemy.

History[edit | edit source]
Kingdom: Classic is the older version of Kingdom on Steam. It was released on 21 October 2015, developed by Noio and Licorice and published by Raw Fury. But before making it to Steam, it was a little Flash game. This older version (which is still playable on Noio's website) was polished and expanded into Kingdom: Classic.
Upon the release of Kingdom: New Lands on Aug 9 2016, the original game was renamed from Kingdom to Kingdom: Classic. The graphics were updated to match that of Kingdom: New Lands as well as a few other things, but the gameplay, building/upgrading costs, and general goal of the game have been retained from the original version.
After being given for free for a few days on Epic Store and on Humble Bundle, as of 3rd November 2020, the title was made unavailable for purchasing on Steam Store, and three days later, on 6 November, a note was added on the Steam page explaining the change: “At the request of the publisher, Kingdom: Classic is no longer available for sale on Steam.” No further details has been shared officially by Raw Fury or the developers.
