Six Roads - multiplayer turn-based strategy game

Hi, guys!

I’d like to present to you my game called Six Roads. The game is primarily focused on asymmetric multiplayer battles. It has a fully moddable engine with a small set of strict rules. In fact, the “official” gamemode is nothing more than a bunch of scripts, attributes and textures.

I’m only prototyping the game, so it has no audio, no cool 3d/ui graphics, no modding tools, and a lot of bugs.
It might freeze, unexpectedly close or even not launch.

Used Tools
I wrote this game in Java 8 using LWJGL 3 for graphics and netty for client/server code. Also I used LuaJ for lua script engine and ImGui bindings for Kotlin for a fast ui development.

Features so far
Only Local/Internet multiplayer mode is available. If public server is unavailable and you want to play with your friends by one Wi-Fi, you can start you own LAN server.

One built-in gamemode is available for now. It includes:

  • 1 hexagonal map for 2-3 players
  • 1 faction
  • 3 unit types
  • 6 building types
  • 2 paths to victory and 2 paths to defeat

Future plans
My goal is to make the engine even more flexible and iron out the modding API, and maybe implement some sort of AI for singleplayer.

  • I updated graphics by adding lighting, shadows, 3D models. I used this awesome book ( and blender for models
  • I also added bridges between hexagons
  • I implemented a new game feature: rising sea level


It looks pretty cool but after a few minutes of clicking around I can’t figure out how to play :frowning:

Oh hi, I’m currently redesigning and testing the new gamemode with my friend, it’s counterintuitive, no wonder why it’s hard to figure out how to play.
Here is a GDD, if you’d like to understand whats going on:
It’s multiplayer sooo it’s kind of pointless to play alone.

From the movie it looks rely nice, I like the idea.
Graphics are cool. I like turn based strategy games related to Civilization.

However, it is hard to start game. I had the same experience like orange451.

Is there any option to play in a simple single player mode without creating any server or room?

Thank you :slight_smile:
Unfortunately, there is no single player mode available for now as I haven’t implemented AI yet.
