Hello IndieDb community!

We at TopHat Game Studios are currently developing a World War One first person shooter on the Unreal engine, we'd like you to follow us on the development cycle and get involved in the games historical background along the way. 

The Somme is a game that derives it's roots from the brutal warfare of 1914-1918 and attempts to achieve a level of realism to symbolize the horrors the brave soldiers had to live in. There are five classes in total each side for players to choose from. We will be doing a lengthy tl;dr post in the up-coming months regarding the internal features, classes and how we plan to approach to gameplay for The Somme. For now, we leave you with the current media available;

I'm really excited about this game. As you may know there is a huge demand for serious WWI games. Waiting for any of them to be released is like waiting for a final breakthrough, the big push which will bring trench warfare to an and. Lot's of effort, lot's of plans, struggling, and no effects.

From what I've heard the whole idea seems really great. Officers, medics, cooperation, and so on. With considerable realism added this could be a really original and ground breaking game. Definitely will be tracking this one. Good luck and keep up the offensive spirit :)
