  • Conquer 125 hand-crafted battlefields
  • Capture buildings and powerful weapons
  • Build bridges, trenches, and structures with the engineer

FINALLY! Trenches of War is now available on Steam! We have decided to iron out the bugs in Windows before shipping the other operating systems. Mac and Linux will be released in the coming weeks.

We hope you like the new light engine. We love the look of light shining out of the barracks' windows - especially in the snow.

Thank you for your patience. We're sorry this took so much longer than we expected. We ran into many issues with the multiplayer and unfortunately some of them are yet to be resolved. We ultimately decided we'd rather get the game out there without multiplayer than delay its release any longer. We will continue to work towards resolving these issues in the coming months and hope Multiplayer will be available soon.

Thank you again for your support. As life-long gamers we've dreamed of having a game released on Steam and you made it happen. As always, we love to hear your feedback and feel free to contact us with any suggestions or concerns.

Enjoy the trenches!
