We have been Greenlit!
Description
Release date: Late 2017
Premise/Story

Rise of the Foederati is an online, massive multiplayer strategy game that combines real-time strategy with turn-based combat. You play as a leader of one of the many tribes surrounding the Roman borders in mid-5th century AD, and your objective is to lead your warriors into raids, skirmishes and battles to survive.

More important than winning battles, however, is to wade through the intricacies of managing your warband, as your soldiers will support your leadership as long as you bring them loot and glory. A weak leader, however, may face discontent warriors that will desert, abandon formations, disrespect your commands, or even challenge you to take control of your group!

Game Features

Spine-chilling, realistic immersion - What you hear is what it is. A knife stab. A shield blocking an incoming sword. The jingling sound of coins inside a bag. Nearly every sound you hear in Rise was recorded in studios to be as realistic as possible. The eerie feeling before a battle now feels more tense than ever, with dynamic music that shifts with a battle's progress.

Intricate, and tactical gameplay - Weather, terrain and personal rivalries between your own soldiers can play a major part in battles. Your victories' (and defeats') consequences need to be managed (How do you carry a raided village's loot? How will you share the spoils?). Beware, though! Death is permanent. Units which you trained and had successful campaigns may be completely lost through deadly wounds, a fatal disease or even untreated infections.

Politics - Each tribe has a king or warlord that leads them. However, dukes and clan chieftains are always on the lookout for an opportunity to seize their place. Would you side with them in case of a rebellion? The Roman Empire on West and East hire tribal mercenaries for their own agenda, that sometimes conflict with your own. Will the gold be worth it? Would you backstab your own tribe and join the Romans for their own sake, as treacherous as they are?

Historical Accuracy - Units speak simple words and battle commands in their own langauge of the past. Proto-Norse, Gothic or Old Irish, to name a few, were some of the dozen-and-a-half extinct languages reconstructed for this game. You'll explore decadent cities, villages and places where the Romans couldn't maintain anymore, reconstructed based on archeological logs and artists fully oriented towards rebuilding the Migration Period's atmosphere; even flora and fauna were focused on the regions they belong.

Multiplayer, one-instanced World - The world is at is; your location is where you are, and players all around the world join and interact with each other on this same place. Your friend can play with you on your battles, either as a soldier you appoint him or as his own unit! Or if you want to play, but don't want to risk your hard-earned spoils, join as a player's enemy, and give him a challenge which he'll surprise himself. Players can also join to form armies, which later on can make sieges on larger cities.

@Jaws_The_Dalek Well we were greenlit before it was retired. We are working hard to make the game playable and integrating it with Steam so we can begin selling an early access version.
