Critic Reviews

"Hinterland: Orc Lords is not necessarily a must-have game, but if you're looking for something that captures the charm of a classic RPG, then this is a should-have.

Orc Lords blends RGP, RTS, and empire-building elements into one solid package. The game doesn't break new ground but it knows how to get the best yield by cultivating familiar territory. It will help to have experience with classic RPGs, because you're on your own here. There is no in-game manual or tutorial. You're thrown into the game to sink or swim. Fortunately, the game is fairly easy to learn. There are an assortment of options that will allow you to tailor the game to suit your tastes and expertise. You adjust various parameters of difficulty such as number of enemies in a particular attack, the length of game, and choice of 20 playable characters with different abilities. With a few tweaks you can make the game as easy or as challenging as you desire." - Cole Smith, 4 out of 5 stars

"Orc Lords doesn't reinvent the genre, but it doesn't have to. It keeps us busy, entertained, and challenged." - Cheat Code Central, Score: 80

Game Summary

Loot, level and build with fast paced RPG combat and strategic base building! 

Your goal is to lead a handful of peasants to establish a small haven in the wild backcountry of a fantasy kingdom. Bring a diverse cast of followers to your settlement on the edge of the world and then carefully select members of your village to put down their ploughs, leave their comfortable homes, and take whatever weapon they may have at hand to join you on expeditions of exploration and conquest in the surrounding lands. There you’ll encounter the characters and creatures of myth and folklore, and find much needed resources to expand your village whether it be iron to make weapons or a mystic tome to entice a great mage to join you.  Should your forays meet with success, fame, fortune and prosperity await. But you must take care, for even the loss of a lowly farmer can spell disaster when harvest time comes.  

Can you build a vibrant settlement, lead your people to prosperity, and tame the wild Hinterland?

Review This Game


Good medieval RTS which feels like it was abandoned on half way to finish. Unpolished, lack of variety.


A fun easy to learn rts stlye medevil game. I haven't had the chance to go through all the characters yet but I have yet to find... one that I did not enjoy. I was looking for a fun simple hack n slash loot game and this def fit the bill
