The Somme - WWI FPS

Stand down soldier.

Today we take a break from the harsh winter cold and huddle around candle light to take a look at some of the latest progress from the team. We have a music sample and new promotional media to warm your mud drenched toes. First up check out some music produced by the very talented Chase Bethea. The track is entitled 'The Somme Needs You!'.

Next up and if you missed them this week, check out the latest work from our resident artist Paul.

News from the front line:

Thanks to the efforts and votes from all our followers old and new we were able to secure a Greenlight on Steam within the month we featured. This is truly humbling to us. Considering all the hard work we put into making this project become a reality it is amazing to know we have you all behind us as we begin to push forward. One of the benefits of being Greenlit meant an invitation to the 'Steam Dev Days' exclusive conference event being held in Seattle in January which we will be attending.

Progress is being made in all departments with more art and design insights coming in the near future. Hit follow on any of our media sites to make sure you catch the latest from our team.

Soldiers, you've had your rest, now take up your arms and vote for The Somme to win IOTY!

Any chance we'll see some hand to hand combat i.e trench clubs, daggers, knuckle dusters, that sort of thing?

Fantastic job on this, my most anticipated game of all time! Been waiting for a WW1 fps for so long.

Give it some time. They seem to release new pictures around every 6 days. I also remember Schrubber in the comments speaking of his ability to tell the future. He thought that there was the possibility of a gameplay. Doppler° then said that he was wise. Who knows what the future may hold? Maybe even a gameplay trailer :D Edit: Check their YouTube channel. It's a tease but it helps give a hint.

that is a good question, but i don't think it's that important, even though it would be nice! (not saying anything about game, i have nothing to do with it, just in case you thought i was part of tophat! JUST OBSERVING)

That is part of our stretch-goal for Kickstarter. We would love to have it replicating scenarios as much as possible in the first release - but it just isn't feasible being a startup indie studio. If our stretch-goals are reached however, what you just said will happen. :)
