Cross of the Dutchman is an action adventure game based on the true story of the folk legend 'Pier Gerlofs Donia'. The story takes place in medieval Western Europe, in the province of Frisia, near the turn of the 16th century. Though Pier and his family lived in peace, the world around them was changing for the worse. Saxxon legions were invading nearby villages, making the lives of the native people next to impossible. On one faithful day, Pier got involved with the Saxxon oppressors, escalating the situation for the worse. The events portrayed in this great adventure caused Pier to gather a band of farmers and form a front against the oppressors. The acts that followed made Pier into the legend he is known for, the Cross of the Dutchman.

- Completely unique historically accurate environments.
- A rich and compelling storyline with incredible characters.
- An aesthetically unique art style.
- Action, Adventure and Strategy gameplay elements.
- Incredibly satisfying battle mechanics, emphasizing a feeling of power and strength.
- Large, outdoor battlefields with hundreds of opponents and allies.
- Detailed hand-drawn cutscenes.
- A unique soundtrack.

Last Friday (June 26, 2015) we announced the Greenlight campaign of Cross of the Dutchman on Steam. We launched the campaign with a press release, interviews with regional television, social media and with the support of Steam groups/communities!

Within less than 24 hours we entered the top 100 and we became trending on the Steam Greenlight ranking list! When we got back to the office on Monday we were close to become a top 10 Greenlight title and when we left the office on Monday we were trending at spot number 8! Later that night we received an e-mail from Valve stating that we were been Greenlit!

Starting from today we will convert all the files to Steam and work on a few more features (achievements, controller support etc.).

We are planning to release Cross of the Dutchman in the first week of September 2015, so stay tuned! To keep up to date with our progress make sure to follow us on our social media channels:

i've got some info on grutte pier:
Large Pier, Pier Gerlofs Donia (Grutte Pier, in the spelling for Fries: 1980 Greate Pier), (Kimswerd, ca. 1480-Sneek, 28 October 1520) was a Frisian warlord, freedom fighter and folk hero. Pier enjoys the reputation of a legendary Warrior and an important historical figure in the history of Friesland and is therefore listed in the Canon of Friesland. In various sources be him a huge stature and attributed a superhuman strength. Pier and his nephew Wijerd Jelckama were the commanders of the rebel army the Arumer Black Heap (Gelderse Friezen) at the Second siege of Medemblik in 1517.

PS this was trasnlated by so it will propably have lots of imperfections.

We won't get the money cq the money will not be transferred from the backers credits cards. The game will still be made, but we'll have to find another way to fund these awesome features. Did you already back us?
