Okay How About: Mount & Blade? For today only I think the base game is on sale on Steam for $4. The expansion pack is $6.

From what I heard and what I saw in the demo (also there on Steam), this is a medieval mercenary sim. You raise armies, take on missions from various kings and lords, and engage in real time strategy battles for profit.

I’ve read blogs on this game – people telling their stories of gain and loss in campaigns that read out like the Berserk anime from the point of view of Griffith.
