Say No 2 Net Validations
- Oct 22, 2008
Jon Shafer, lead designer of Civilization 4 BtS and Civilization 5, has founded his own gaming studio "Conifer Games" and has made his first project public: At the Gates is a turn based strategy game, in which you will fight with the "barbarians" against the Romans.
Besides the obvious battles the game is also supposed to include trade and diplomacy.
The game is currently not yet finished, but a Kickstarter campagain has been started to support the funding. Currently $4,463 by 108 people have been pledged, the goal to make the game happen is $40,000.
Please note: Kickstarter campaigns might fail, and if they succeed the project might still not come to reality.
It has also to be said that apparently a playable prototype has already been programmed, and that the game is meant to be released in 2014 for PCs.
Please read (and watch and listen, there are 2 videos) more at the Kickstarter campagain site.
