Conquest is an online multiplayer strategy video game developed by Jacob Grahn for the jiggmin.com forum that was released on 2009-06-04.[1]

Gameplay

Users first choose from one of three nations: Atlantis, the Soviet Union, or Sweden, that they will permanently fight for, with each possessing their own bonuses. After completing the selection process, players are given a village to maintain, 25 turns, 100 gold, 1 troop, and 1 spy.[2]

The game works off a real time clock where every member receives 1 turn and 2 gold every five minutes. Turns can be used to generate further gold, recruit troops, run spy missions, and perform attack raids on enemy villages to deplete their military and steal gold, weapons, among others. After being assaulted, the victim is sent a private message on the forum detailing the battle, causalities, and lost equipment.[3]

Gold is used to purchase weapons, armor, advanced training for the user's troops, and hire spies to execute espionage missions.

Shut Down

Conquest was shut down on 2011-01-21 when Jiggmin launched a redesign of his website that no longer allowed the game to function with the forum. Its concept would later be re-worked into War of the Web.[4]

Trivia

  • While teams began more equal in terms of control, Atlantis quickly became the leading nation to the point of nearly having 100% dominance.[5]
  • Version 2 was posted a week after the game was released, though specific changes are unknown as the announcement blog wasn't fully archived.[6]
