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.

I havn't heard much about this game, or what it's like, but May I suggest adding the following, if not already added.

-Australian Infantry
-Mortars
-Gas
-Cavalry
-Flyable Bi-Planes(I Think that would be amazing)

Now I know that is alot to ask, but there are not many good WWI games out there, but this, from what I heard is the best one so far. Good luck, I hope all gose well. ;)

I don't know about the first one, but the rest are there apparently!
They said before that they're introducing more countries as the game develops, but I wouldn't know.
Stay hopeful though :D

I think they will add the French army after the first release as DLC.
