Great Houses of Calderia is a fantasy grand strategy that aims to topple Crusader Kings

The Crusader Kings series revolutionised grand strategy by switching the genre’s emphasis from countries to characters, making wars and coups and religious schisms more tangible by filtering them through the lens of simulated humans. But a curious quirk of CK’s design is that you rarely know precisely what those characters are doing. There’s a gap between the social simulation and what happens on the campaign map, meaning your family members can move halfway across the world without you realising.

Where Crusader Kings only gives you the highlight reel of your character’s experiences, Great Houses of Calderia plans to give you the live feed. This debut grand strategy by Finnish developer Resistance Games takes the broad structure of Crusader Kings but puts your family members directly on the map, tying your actions to their presence in the world.
