Another sunrise, another day of toil. Food must be grown, industries built, science and magic advanced, and wealth collected. Urgency drives these simple efforts, however, for your planet holds a history of unexplained apocalypse, and the winter you just survived was the worst on record. A fact that has also been true for the previous five.
As you discover the lost secrets of your world and the mysteries of the legends and ruins that exist as much in reality as in rumor, you will come to see that you are not alone. Other peoples also struggle to survive, to grow, and perhaps even to conquer.
You have a city, a loyal populace, and a few troops; your power and magic should be sufficient to keep them alive. But beyond that, nothing is certain… Where will you go, what will you find, and how will you react? Will your trail be one of roses, or of blood?
New 4x strategy game for Amplitude Studios
Iceberg Interactive and Amplitude Studios team up again to publish Endless Legend
Indie videogames developer Amplitude Studios made quite a splash last year with their first title Endless Space (PC/Mac). The hugely popular 4x space strategy game launched on Steam in July 2012 selling around half a million units in its first year, while garnering critical acclaim, marking an excellent debut for the Paris outfit.
Since the 2012 release, the studio has not only worked on expanding Endless Space with 4 free add-ons and an official expansion, but has also worked behind closed doors on new games set within the ‘Endless’ universe – the recently announced Dungeon of the Endless and in particular, their largest scale project to date: the 4x fantasy strategy game Endless Legend.
As was the case with Endless Space, Iceberg Interactive will fulfil the publisher role for the game, taking care of all sales channels (both retail and digital) except Steam (which Amplitude does itself) and assisting with PR & Marketing. Endless Legend is currently in development and is slotted for a Spring 2014 release.
“Creating a fantasy 4X game was a dream for all of us at Amplitude. The success of Endless Space and the support of our community have allowed to make this dream come true”, comments Mathieu Girard, CEO of Amplitude Studios. “With respect towards great games released before us, we intend to set a new benchmark in creating a rich, immersive, thrilling, and accessible 4X strategy game in a new fantasy setting”, he adds.
Erik Schreuder, CEO at Iceberg Interactive says: “4x strategy remains a key genre for us, whether set in a sci-fi or fantasy setting. We’re very excited to continue our co-operation with Amplitude Studios and are certain that Endless Legend will be another flagship title, when it releases in 2014.”
