Set during the Hundred Years' War, Anvil Saga is a management sim with RPG elements where you take control of a blacksmith.

Key features: 

·   Build the smithy of your dreams. Construct new rooms and facilities to expand your operations and take on more challenging orders. From a simple workshop to a gym, each room will also need to be fitted with the appropriate furniture and decor.

·   Make decisions and deal with the consequences. Maintain your reputation and relationships with customers and conflicting factions, each offering different protection and bonuses for your budding enterprise. 

·   Become a renowned craftsman. Increase your prestige level to attract the rich, the famous, and the eccentric who will pay a premium.

·   Forge a team of professionals. Manage employees with different skill sets, needs, and personalities. Keep them happy by building special facilities, installing amenities, and decorating their rooms.
