Verdun: A Squad Based Shooter set in the Great War
To anyone who chats with me about my interests they'll know that after the Middle Ages and Cyberpunk the first half of the 20th Century, specifically the First World War is one of my biggest interests (Second place in historical interests)
For a really long time I had hoped for a good WW1 shooter or Strategy Game (I'd certainly prefer the latter but that's a gaming preference) and some time last year a little Indie Developer showed up on Steam's Early Access List looking for some support towards developing an entrenched, squad-based tactical shooter and I jumped on to support it in the slim hope that it would evolve into something amazing.
Just this last week my hopes were at least somewhat realized with the game officially entering Beta with the introduction of two new armies (Squads) atop the pre-existing French and Germans, the British Expeditionary Force and the Canadian Stormtroopers.
Only just playing it today there's a massive difference from just a month ago when the graphics were still relatively unoptimized, animations looked wonky when staring at other players and there were no bullet physics beyond 'point and shoot' and as it stands I'm having an insanely good time playing and I can't wait to see what their finished product is going to look like.
Long story short it'd be really cool to get some other Icrontians to sign up and play with me, the game doesn't have integrated voice yet and I genuinely believe that a coherent organized squad could absolutely destroy a few Jerry's on an assault or defense phase.
Anyways here's some screenshots from my game today.
