wow! In a few days it will be a month since our last build release! How time flies!

Anyway, things are coming along great and you've probably been keeping up with the new screen shots on the Steam screenshots tab as well as on our website (http://lodmmo.com)

We also released a short movie showing how our weapons gear interface works. More to come!

Things are winding down now for this build and some last minute tweaks and bug fixes are currently wrapping up. We're shooting for a build next week depending on how things go.

You can checkout the changelog (http://downloads.3000ad.com/lod_changelog.txt) to get an idea of what's coming. Note that our changelogs tend to only include items which are relevant to public releases, so don't be fooled by the scant number of entries, this upcoming build has had a LOT of internal tweaks and fixes.

I know that this is a much anticipated .09 build; so even though it is an Early Access game in which bugs are expected, we're making sure that no last minute nasties creep in as that would be a not-so-good first impression of the infantry combat.

Stay tuned!

It's official. Line Of Defense Tactics is coming out on Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8 marketplace next week. Have a Windows 8 based touch device (e.g. Surface)? Oh, you're going to love this.

In other news, XBox One and PS4 versions are also in the works. The dearth of RTS games on those platforms made it seem like a good idea to go forth and multiply. :)

Sweet baby Jesus, I'm doing it.

A remake is coming. There are no capital ship space combat games being made; so I have to - once again - carry the torch.

The last time I did this was back in 2009.
