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!

Yeah, and I guess developers should live in the forest and eat only bread, right? Our life is not free, we have to pay somehow for all the things. And working for this game is serious job for whole TopHat team.

realism all the way. accept no substitute. look to red orchestra 2 as a good example of intuitive realism. no arcade call of duty ********. good luck.

I'd say Red Orchestra 2 without unlocks and stuff like that. It doesn't really belong. Having unlocks kind of ruins how submersive the gameplay is for me.

In a perfect world, we would have them all in one level. But we're not in a situation where we could do that. Levels are separated like you see in most video games. The map(s) scale are entirely dependant on the Battle themselves. We take sections from each battle and expand on them. That's the best way I can describe their size without putting my foot in it. :P
