"What if we combined the best features of great games into one? A vast open-world with beautiful castles that can be built and designed to the block like bases in Rust, fun combat system of Bannerlord, life-like NPCs of Sims 3 & 4, enjoyable economy systems of Anno 1404 & 1800, Tropico 6, and elaborate skills, quests, items and metals of Runescape. That has to be fun!"

As of now, we're currently working on these items:
Horses and Mounted Combat:
- Desert islands have the horse resource, allowing you to build a stable, spawning horses with a limit of 3 per stable. As usual, resource buildings must be built on the ground.
- Mounting horses increase movement speed and allow usage of melee or ranged weapons while on a horse.
- Extra damage dealt based on how fast the attacker is moving.
New mobs and metals:
- A variety of new mobs to kill and complete quests, and more metal tiers to upgrade to.
- Talk "socially" with a villager once a day to improve your relationship with them. Stronger relations will increase their bond with you, increasing their HP significantly.
- Villagers will sometimes talk to each other with random chit chat, also increasing their HP if it happens.
Support the development
Help us develop Coronation!
Coronation is our dream game to spend many hours of medieval fun inside, and we're very willing to spend our lifetime working on it. As of now, I have full-time job and I work on the game part-time. Impala still works on the game full-time. There are plenty of features to develop in order for Coronation to become the game we all want it to be, but each feature requires time, effort and money. If you think that Coronation has potential, you can join us as a patron! We'll definitely remember those who support us in paying the costs for the game, our bills and expenses. You can contribute at either Patreon, Paypal or Tebex. Also, you'll earn Credits to spend on Coronation's Skins to look better in-game!
