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.

Feel free to contact me (here or by my contact information on the website) and write/ask whatever you want. Any of your feedback is welcome!

  • 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 Sad

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 Smiley
Unfortunately, there is no single player mode available for now as I haven't implemented AI yet.
