SemiFormal Studios Announces Beta Launch for Ensemble Online, July 22nd
Independent Game Developer, SemiFormal Studios, has announced a Beta launch date for Ensemble Online, the ambitious, browser-based MMORTS. The Ensemble team has gone to Kickstarter to fund the Beta.
“We’re one of the only game development houses in the Valley and certainly the only one working on a project of this magnitude” said Jesse Martinez, Lead Designer for Ensemble Online. “We’ve made it very far, but between legal fees, technology costs, and advertising, making the leap to Beta can be daunting.”
Ensemble is a Realtime Strategy Game much like the classics of the ‘90s, e.g., Age of Empires, but on a breathtakingly vast map and in a persistent world. Players take control of heroes exploring an uncharted desert, battling nature (and other player settlers), uncovering and gathering various resources, and discovering new territory in which to build towns and outposts.
