At the Gates

Jon Shafer, a designer that worked on Civilization V is about ready to release his latest creation next week on January 23. It's called At the Gates and it is, as you may expect, a new kingdom building game.

At the Gates will hit digital storefronts like Steam, the Humble Store, and the official At the Gates website for $29.99 (USD) (plus 10% launch week discount). When it releases, players will assume the role of a dark age lord that aims to build a kingdom to replace the Roman Empire. You will be able to manage clans, explore your environment, harvest resources, and build up a thriving economy and military. Sounds like a real walk in the park, yeah?

It won't be easy.
Ok, you didn't need to call me out on that already. Anyway...

Your path is unsure. Overcome your immensely strong neighbors. Outlast the frigid winters of the far north to discover a source of gold and vast riches.

Are you the leader who will usher in a new era of European history? Or will you be forgotten?

Game Features

An Evolving Map
Seasons and weather dramatically transform the landscape around you. The river that acted as a barrier during the summer might become a highway in the winter - for both you and your enemies!

Character Management
Each of your clans has unique traits and desires, so carefully consider how you use them.

Survival & Roguelike Elements
Keep your clans fed through the harsh winter. Resources run out so always be hunting for more. Your neighbors can be immensely strong. Every game will present you with new challenges and opportunities.

Watercolor Art Style
A beautiful watercolor landscape serves as the canvas for your clever economic and military strategies.

Tooltips-in-Tooltips!
AtG features a revolutionary user interface which utilizes "tooltips-in-tooltips" for the first time, making it easier to learn AtG without sacrificing any gameplay depth.
