Generally i don’t talk about this, but since one of the developer send news about it and the game looks promising, here is a real ambitious project. Ensemble is a Real-time Strategy much like the classics of the 90s, e.g, Age of Empires, but on a breathtakingly vast map and in a persistent world. You play as a hero exploring an uncharted desert, battling nature (and other player settlers), uncovering and gathering various resources, and discovering new territory to build towns and outposts in. You can build farms and mills to harvest food and defensive towers to protect your land, but one of the most interesting features is being able to ally with other players and work together to build these towns.
A first true MMORTS? Ensemble Online allows you to tactically control territory, harvest resources, and build buildings anywhere on an expansive, real-time, never-ending map. No limiting where you build, no text-based battles, no losing your progress when you log off (you better build some defensive towers). A gigantic 400,000,000 tile map. Ensemble is browser-based, making it extremely accessible. Linux, Mac, PC, and hundreds of millions of tablets and smartphones can play without downloading a bulky client. The game is currently in Alpha.
This guys need money to realise this project, so if you are interested in this game support them!
