Growing a Game Company

We’re down to the last few days everyone! I’ll be posting an update every day this week as a thank you for your amazing support.

 

 

If you haven’t done so already, I ask that you check out the At the Gates Kickstarter page. Our goal is to innovate and take strategy gaming to the next level, but this campaign will be our sole source of funding for development. And hint, hint: the more successful ATG is the more articles you’ll have to read in the future!

To those of you who have already contributed and helped us reach our funding goal, I offer my most sincere thanks!

So some of you might be wondering about the story behind At the Gates’ creation. Let’s turn back the clock a bit and take look at the origins of the project.

 

Why the Fall of Rome?

As for the theme itself, I was talking with one of my designer friends who was working on a scenario about the fall of Rome and he described a couple of cool features he was working on, one of which was taking a core system that’s normally helps players and flipped it around to instead hurt them. This got the gears in my brain turning.
