Welcome one and all to the very first post of the Festung Europa development team's official blog. Without further ado, let's get this thing kicked off.
The prime directive for our team over the past few months can best be summarized as: build, build, and build some more. In the six months since development on Darkest Hour: Europe '44-'45 concluded, our humble little team has grown from nine dedicated individuals to a staff of almost 20 strong, and still growing.
Please take a moment to visit our "Team Bios" page to learn a little bit more about the talented folks involved in this great project. Many of them have been hard at work since the beginning of this year, not only conceptualizing the features and gameplay that will go into Festung Europa, but also creating the music, scenery, characters, weapons, vehicles, and code that will ultimately reach your computer screens. And the journey really is just beginning...
Our hope is to give you a frequent glimpse into the FE workshop via our blog as development continues. If there is anything in particular you would like to see us discuss, or would like to ask the developers directly, feel free to post in this blog or on the official JBG forums.
We'll round out this first development blog posting by pointing you in the direction of the Media page, where you can find a couple of new work in progress images: the Lee Enfield No.4 Mk I rifle and the British No.69 light offensive hand grenade.
