The Somme - WWI FPS

Greetings Trench Rats,

It is sad news today, news that will greatly upset a lot of the followers of The Somme. Unfortunately we've collectively agreed as a team to let The Somme peacefully pass away. We acknowledge this might come as a huge shock due to the recent post regarding a firm revival of The Somme, however due to unforeseen circumstances financially, The Somme could no longer sustain itself. This comes with the territory of being a real indie game, indie games are plagued with the problem of funding and believe us when we say we did our complete best in looking for a cure. Maybe one day the project might arise if the funding is there, but from strong observation the probability of that happening is tremendously low.

We hope that you understand the severity of the issues that plague such a ambitious project - we want to thank you as a community for being absolutely amazing, loving and very interested in the product.

Thank you, and good night.

- The Somme

There isn't a Single Player mode for The Somme currently and we can't promise that one will come in the future, it is something we have thought about it. It is multi-player only. I can say, the 'round starts' have a cinematic story-line based prep to them!

Speaking of these 'rounds', how long do you expect a round to last? I feel that quick rounds focused on kills would detract greatly from the Great War setting and feel, whereas an objective based battle involving more planning, teamwork and preferably no time limit would make this game much more enjoyable.
