The Fertile Crescent is a Real Time Strategy game set during the Bronze Age in the Ancient Near East that features online multiplayer.

As the commander of an ancient tribe, somewhere in The Fertile Crescent, you will have to train villagers, construct buildings, harvest resources and train an army. You will also be able to research new technologies and forge improved equipment for your army.

The Fertile Crescent is inspired by the rise and fall of Bronze Age civilisations. You will have to handle the delicate balance between food surplus and the maintenance of your army.

The available build contains an auto-generated map with an enemy tribe that attacks you in waves. It also features simple how to play pages to get you started.

Multiplayer

The game features fully-functional 1v1 online battles!

We can still remember witnessing Age of Empires 1 being played over LAN for the first time, back in the late 90s. It was magic. Being able to upload an RTS game with multiplayer support is a great achievement for us and a homage to that memory.

We've been playing multiplayer games for weeks. Even though The Fertile Crescent is still in early development, we have done our best to squeeze out every bug we could find. Hopefully you will get a good experience playing this build from day one!

To begin with you can play 1on1 games. More options will be added in later builds.

We use dedicated servers in three regions at the moment: Australia, Europe and America.

Hey! There should be gold ores on every map you play. Obsidian was taken out of the game in the latest version.

I uploaded ver 0.4.1 in the files section now.

I haven't added Watch Tower yet, but I've fixed numerous bugs (including the one you mentioned), tweaked existing difficulty levels and added SANDBOX difficulty level. So now you can play with the mechanics without stressing about the enemy attacking you.

Thanks for the feedback!
