Last Kingdom Interview

Watch our interview with Blue Iron Labs, the developer of Last Kingdom, a CRYENGINE-powered strategy game.

Last Kingdom is a Medieval strategy game from indie developers Blue Iron Labs that is in development right now. We recently caught up with Blue Iron Labs on our official CRYENGINE Twitch channel, which, if you didn't know already, is home to all kinds of great content. Don't forget to follow us so you don't miss out on future streams, and your chance to interact with the guests live. But if you didn't catch the live show, we're pleased to present you with a recording of the 60-minute plus discussion that takes a deep dive into the game and the development process. It's packed full of indie-game dev insight.

Last Kingdom is an open-world strategy game that's been in development for two years. When you wash ashore on a beach, it's down to you to re-establish a kingdom in a vast open world that's yours to shape as you wish. From establishing a hamlet to building your first castle and creating your own Kingdom, you'll need to source and manage resources and compete or collaborate with other kingdoms as you grow your empire from scratch.

Developer Elisha Bonack from Blue Iron Labs, who many of you will be familiar with from the official CRYENGINE Discord channel, is the star guest in the show hosted by Junior Evangelist Roman Perezogin and Senior Manager for the CRYENGINE Ecosystem Gabriel Yakir Ketteler. Elisha discusses why they chose CRYENGINE for the project, showcases the game, reveals the challenges they have overcome during development so far, and outlines the future of the project.
