Forts Tournament #1

G'day Forts Fans! Yesterday saw the inaugural edition of the Forts tournament. Entrants from all over the world battled it out for the title of Supreme Champion.

At the beginning there were 29 entrants, and over the course of the single elimination competition these were whittled down. The tournament began with best-of-one battles for the first round, then best-of-three until we had two competitors left.

The final saw two battle-hardened fort commanders face off over a best-of-five series of explosive encounters, with us watching the action live thanks to Forts observer feature. In the end xorfl came out out top, vanquishing worthy opponent xRayz3n with superior tactics and strategies. Smash GaminG!! - Frazzz has just uploaded a playlist of the action to his YouTube channel, so check it out!

We'd like to say a big thank you to Quxzcover for organising the whole thing. He did a great job, and intends to host more in the future. Thanks also go out to all those who agreed to be referees.

Thanks for playing Forts, and if you want to join in on the next tournament, or just get involved with and battle other members of the Forts online community, head over to the Official Forts Discord server!

Tournament and Dev Diary!

G’day Forts Fans! With the Forts tournament around the corner, we thought it better to skip this week’s update in the interests of stability. In its place we are bringing to you part one of our Dev Diary series for you to enjoy, as we continue work behind the scenes to support and improve the game.

Developer Diary - The Foundations
Part 1 of the Dev Diary looks at the inception of Forts, and how it was brought to life. We talk about how we came to work on the project, and features some old build footage from the archives. Check out how Forts came to be...

Forts Tournament
The Forts Tournament kicks off at 4pm CST, May 27. All slots have now been filled, and it’s sure to be a blast. If you are a contender, good luck! If you want to follow the tournament’s progression, click on this link.

Hope you enjoy the video, and thanks for playing Forts!
