Alright, so we weren't sure whether to call this one an alpha or a beta: we think it's of beta quality, but not all the content is in yet, so we decided to just play it safe and call it a "preview release". Anyway, you know the deal: download it here. And be sure to check back later for the release notes.
Get the latest alpha here! A lot of bug fixes went into this one, and the Archidamian Campaign is also ready for some more heavy-duty testing, so let us know what you find!
Check back later for the full release notes.
Get the latest alpha here! This release is mostly bug fixes, but we're quickly nearing feature-completion. The Athenian campaign is also enabled now, although a number of the quests are still broken. We've also added a few new quests to the start of the Philip campaign to explain the new features, including charging, flanking, upgrading roads, changing homes, and blockading. (That last one isn't a new feature, of course, but it's even more useful now.)
As always, let us know what you think, and keep the bug reports coming.
If you've been following Hegemony Gold, be sure to download the new build. This update includes some new features and lots of bug fixes. Unfortunately, this new build will break any saved games you've created while playing alpha 1, but alas, such is the cost of being on the bleeding edge.
As always, we appreciate any and all of your comments, so head over to the forums and let us know what you think, or just email me directly with your thoughts.
Update: There was a bug in Alpha 2 that made kill quests impossible to complete, so the download link now points to a new alpha 3 build.

This has been a pretty well-kept secret for the last couple of months, but we've created a Facebook page for Longbow Games. If you're into the whole social networking "thing", be sure to "like" us!
G4 tv's X-Play has included Hegemony in their top 10 indie games to watch. Check out the clip here: Hegemony on X-Play
Update: Itamar Weisberg over at Hamis`hakia, a Hebrew gaming podcast, has posted an interview he had with Rick at GenCon this year. Most of the site is in Hebrew, but he made an exception for this podcast, which is in English. Check it out here.
You spoke and we listened! Today we're announcing Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greece, a major expansion to Hegemony which includes Hegemony: Philip of Macedon as well as a new diplomacy module, a sandbox mode, two new campaigns, and lots of other goodies.
Now, you're probably thinking "But Rick, a game that great must be worth a billion dollars!" And you would be right! But since we're such nice guys, we're not even asking for your firstborn child. In fact, if you've already purchased Hegemony, you can get Hegemony Gold for free!
We're planning to release Hegemony Gold in November, but why wait? You can try the alpha now! Download it here and it will install beside Hegemony: Philip of Macedon, so you don't need to worry about it screwing with your current game. The new scenarios do require a valid serial code, though, so you're probably only going to be interested in this if you've already purchased Hegemony.
The changes we've been making are based on the hundreds of conversations we've had with all of you on the forums and on our recent convention tour, so we think you'll like them, but we're only five guys, so we'd really like your help testing Hegemony Gold! Try out the alpha and let us know what you think in the forums or by emailing me directly.
