Description

Tenshu General, is a simple, elegant, Real Time Strategy (RTS) game for those who favor short play sessions over long sessions. Quick casual game play combined with the challenge of continuously adapting enemies allow for a surprisingly challenging exercise in strategy. It is a cross breed between a board game and a classic RTS. If you like Risk or 8 Minute Empire, Tenshu General is your game. Set in medieval Japan, you will take on the role of a Tenshu General tasked with defending your Tenshu castle against invaders while expanding your own territory. Can you beat the general of the enemy Tenshu at his game?

History

Concept creation

The concept of Tenshu General was conceived from the desire to have a board game with simple game play, but several layers of interactions. The idea to use the Edo era of Japan as a backdrop for the game is really due to our interest in samurai's, ninja's, and the mighty katana. The scope of the game has been set up such that we could build it within a year and get a product onto the market.
