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!

Hey guys!

There are currently no plans to do a Console port of the game, we're strictly developing for PC right now. Licensing, Testing and Releasing a stable Console game is a complex process and just the PC version is taking up enough of our time ;) That said, you never know what the future holds!

We are still going strong however! We've had some big internal changes recently which have stunted development but we are all working away behind closed doors! Stay tuned for a new update soon!

Thanks so much for the heads up! :D
I just heard about Sony giving Indie developers a chance to have their games on the PS4, and thought you might be interested.
But I'm happy either way because I already have a PC which could probably handle this! :)
