Team work dependency is key without it you will fall to feet of your foes. Listen out for orders from your commanding officer. Which role are you? You decide! From the Medic class and being able to help wounded allies, to being an Officer, taking command to spot targets and mark them on your map to create devastation to your enemies forces with Artillery barrage.

Posted by Ch°an on Oct 21st, 2012
Attention Trench Rats! With the exciting news that Kickstarter is coming to the UK on the 31st of this month, that means we will be putting The Somme on there which is I'm sure what a lot of our followers wanted. We are currently establishing a foundation on Pledges and linking everything up to The Somme's internals so that everyone will get their benefits from pledging and supporting the campaign.
The funding from Kickstarter will be used to secure The Somme a booth at GDC and allow the developer team to travel there and showcase the game in it's current stage, and it will fund the start up of TopHat's physical studio. We are incredibly eager to show the community video footage of the game and to have test matches with you; with the funding that will become a reality a lot faster, which also means the followers of The Somme will have chance to participate in the Beta.
This is a very short news post as we wanted to let the watchers and followers of The Somme be aware that we're making all the necessary preparations for Kickstarter and their involvement pressed out. We want to thank all of the support we currently receive and have from the community it's an incredible morale boost, thank you again.
We love community spirit, if you feel that the game needs a certain something, then hit up the forums ( links below ) and let us know!
TopHat game Studios has a community forum, if you have any questions about The Somme or want to catch live feedback for the game and our studio. Please use the following contact links.
