The Somme - WWI FPS

Top of the morning Trench Rats,

We have reached #10 on Greenlight. Thats right, #10, and we couldn't have done it without YOUR votes. We can hardly believe the support and determination shown by our fans and from all of the development team we are truly thankful.

What are you doing soldier? Don’t lay your rifle down, the war will last through the winter. We are not there just yet as we will still require a trench load more votes to keep The Somme highly ranked in order to get Greenlit. We aim to hit this target by the time we launch to Kickstarter.

To thank you for your continued support we are releasing a new concept art wallpaper FREE to download. It depicts the battle of Delville Wood, which will be a playable map upon release.

Battle of Delville Wood - Wallpaper Download

That is all for today soldier! Enjoy the concept art and look forward to more updates soon.


Want more? Get involved on Greenlight with discussions

Today is the centenary for the start of the First World War, I bow my head before all those who fought and died in this terrible war.

Lest we forget!!!

6 months have passed and not a word as been spoken about future developments of this amazing game,if the game (god forbid) is dead then at least have the common decency to tell us that you will no longer be working with this project, it's getting beyond a joke now and all of us who support this game are increasingly worried for this game.
So please developers pull your finger out and respond to our pleads and we just want to know the future for the "Somme".

(sorry for the rant people but I just want to express my views and increasing concern for this game)
