Here's a new strategy game I'm excited to play! TFC: The Fertile Crescent is a pixel-art take on the classic base-building RTS genre and it's entering Early Access on March 29.

Inspired of course by some of the greats, this title places quite the emphasis on its multiplayer and community tournaments. However, they've also mentioned over email in a press release there's going to be a special "Horde Mode" that will "have its own rules with an opponent in the form of nomads".

I played quite a lot of hours in the original version, which proved to be pretty great. The food system is certainly interesting and helps set it apart from others in the genre.

They will also have a full demo available during Steam Next Fest, with it already up now on Steam.

I played the demo and it was okay. Considering that Age of Empire series works with Proton, it is still good that there are alternatives :D
