The founders have given us a ton of great feedback which we’ve been using to balance and add new maps. So far, we’ve only had relatively small maps in. The next update (which we expect to be next week) will start to add large and huge maps to see how well those work on your machines.
Below are the maps we’ve got. Click on the thumbnail to see them better.
(too big to zoom out on)
So these are some of the maps we’re going with.&...
RecapAshes of the Singularity is a real-time strategy game we’re developing with an expected release date of 2016. It goes into early access later this Summer. It can best be described as Sins of a Solar Empire on a planet (or Total Annihilation meets Company of Heroes). Your empire has thousands of individual units spread across a world in which you’re battling other players (single player or multiplayer) for control of its resources. No game, RTS or otherwis...

The Fury is lethal (and that’s the actual unit with a high-resolution texture, not a mockup). It’s a big month for Ashes of the Singularity.
Windows is coming
First, DirectX 12 will finally see the official light of day with the release of Windows 10. We plan to release an update to Ashes this month that includes a benchmark mode so you can see how well your machine works on DirectX 12 (and then you can try the game out on DirectX 11 and compare the difference).
Sorcerer King about to go gold
In the next few days, Sorcerer King will go gold. That term means a lot less in the digital era since it’s just the moment that it’s 1.0 and we’re ready to say “this game is worthy of being purchased for the posted price.”
I’m both excited and nervous about reviews. In the past, our games were designed with “drive by” reviews in mind. That is, they were fairly straight forward in what they’re about. Sorcerer King, however, is not.&...
Introduction Welcome to Sorcerer King a different kind of fantasy 4X from what you’ve played before. Sorcerer King is a game where the events of a traditional fantasy 4X game have already happened: A group of rival civilizations built up empires fought wars with one of those civilizations coming to dominate the others. In this case, the winner was the Sorcerer King.
The game starts out with you and your rivals relegated to a single city under the terms of peace set by the...

What is it? It’s a fantasy strategy game with a lot of role playing elements. Or it’s an RPG with strategy elements. You be the judge:
It’s a strategy game because
You train units You found new cities You build up your cities You engage in diplomacy with rival civilizations You can terraform the map (using magic) You harvest resources You can craft weapons, armor, etc. You r...

You thought unified meant one OS across all devices, right? Wrong, or ‘Unified OSino’.
Window10 will ship in three consumer editions and three Enterprise and education editions. Now that’s ‘unified’.
Translation: The three consumer editions Home, Mobile and Pro are designed for the demands of end-users, professionals and small businesses. Home is the equivalent of the Windows 8 edition, a basic edition of Windows 10 that will most likely ship on the ...
