Lord Paravia Medieval Castle

Lord Paravia Medieval Castle


Rule your own kingdom on this Medieval business simulation.

*** NEWS: We have just released (on February 4th) a MUCH DEEPER turn-based strategy game, based on some feedback we have received here on Lord Paravia mixed with our own ideas. Please check it out, search for Exploration Colony or check More Gamed by the Developer below. ****

Lord Paravia is a minimalist turn-based business and strategy simulation, or resource management game, for those who don't care about fancy graphics but like a good gameplay. It puts you in the position of a knight in medieval times that has just received a small fief from the Lord, becoming a vassal. Now you must manage the life of hundreds of peasants, nobles and soldiers and aim to become a Lord yourself.


You start as a Sir - or Dame - in a small medieval castle, have to walk up the feudal ladder of power: Baron, Viscount, Count, Duke, Prince, Grand Duke... and finally Lord. To be promoted you have to properly manage your fief by collecting taxes, expanding the wheat crop, increasing the population, holding enemy attacks, and other tasks. Take too long to be promoted and you might not be alive to see your own crowning, as during the Middle Ages the life expectancy was very short.


Buildings such as the Watch Tower defend your kingdom from enemy invasion soldiers, as the general will give advices to help you. The market allow you to trade, buy and sell grain. As a strategy puzzle game you have to think the best strategies to grow and upgrade your castle, in this turn-based simulation.


Main features:
• Trade: buy and sell acres of land and also grains
• Taxes: manage the tax rates to attract more serfs
• Crops: have enough crop to feed your population, or buy grains from the market
• Upgrade: upgrade your buildings for bonuses
• Protect: have enough soldiers to protect your land!
• Seasons: each season has an unique effect - the harvest is better on the summer, and more serfs die on the winter
• Ranking: get ranked against everyone else who finished the game (new feature released Dec 9th!)
• No Micro-Transactions: zero purchases available!


Lord Paravia is simple yet complex indie game, and was inspired by the classic medieval resource management game Santa Paravia en Fiumaccio (1978), and also Hamurabi / Hammurabi (1969).

Recent changes:
Minor update (1.0.6 & 1.0.8):
- Forcing the banner size to not overlap the Movement Left on the bottom bar. Now it shouldn't overlap!

Updates after release:
- Added a new Intermediate difficulty level, and unlocked the Expert difficulty to everyone.
- Added ranking per difficulty level! The fewer seasons to get to Lord, higher the ranking.
- Several balance changes, so now Beginner should be easier
- Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on load for some devices

Just released on December 6th!

Nice but... This is a nice ,simple game with easy to learn gameplay however I also have the problem with the grain. For some reason the available workers drops to zero and you no longer get grain for them to eat. I've tried not upgrading and buying more land but no luck. I'll uninstall for now and try it again later.

A Remake? This reminds me of a game I played back in the 80's called Santa Paravia and Fiumaccio. I rewrote a version in basic back then so I am familiar with the program.

James Pretty good but once my serfs at the granary hit 0 they never go back up, no matter what my population is the granary serfs remain at 0 causing me to buy grain instead of harvesting.

Pretty good but But there is a glaringly obvious feature missing... When buying and selling units of food and land, you must click a plus or minus button to add or subtract units ONE AT A TIME, so for the 2nd half of the game when you have lots of money/resources, you are pushing the button literally hundreds of times EVERY turn... A button for 10 and maybe another for 100 units, or a slide bar would be very useful. Could've beaten it in nearly half the time, seriously. But it was a neat game, I look forward to the newer 1
