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". During Early Access they also plan to add in more additional modes and there's going to be a brand new refresh interface compared with the old free version on itch.io.
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. Food isn't just for producing new units, your stock also affects many other parts of your growth and how quickly you gain knowledge points for research.
They will also have a full demo available during Steam Next Fest, with it already up now on Steam.
