Michał Marcinkowski's words:
"When I was a kid I played war with my friends with little toy figures and pencil drawings. It's still fun and I would do it but you know... That's why I decided to make a multiplayer computer game.

This is the new way. The way games where always meant to be. We are leading a new path to what I believe games should be like. Free-form, competetive/cooperative and massively FUN. This is King Arthur's Gold."
