We’re really excited to be helping Dark Vale Games and all of their partners release FORGE today.  FORGE is an awesome new indie PC game that evolves PC multiplayer with amazingly fun, fast and strategic skill-based PvP.  Check out more at PlayForgeWar.com.

FORGE has followed a long road to get where it is today — and where is it?  On Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/223390/), Amazon, and Gamersgate for $19.99 (each purchase awards a second copy of the game FREE to give to friends!).  The game went through a “Kick-Finish” campaign on Kickstarter, launched an Alpha, and then was chosen by fans on Steam to be in the Greenlight program… all the while ,more than 20,000 players were transfixed in the beta program, constantly refining and bug squashing as release date neared.

CARSLBAD, CA (AUG. 27, 2012) — Dark Vale Games, an independent video game developer based in Southern California, is upping the ante in support of its Kickstarter campaign for FORGE, offering backers of the game the opportunity to “try-before-they-buy” with instant access to the Alpha demo of the game, which is available now for download and play. FORGE is a multiplayer-only PC game due to release in 2012 that bridges the gap between the skill-based action of shooters and the strategic player-vs-player competition of massively multiplayer online games.

“We’ve always said that we want to run our business a little differently, to do what is right for those people playing our games,” said Tim Alvis, COO/CTO of Dark Vale Games. “We’re doing just that – we’re giving PC gamers the opportunity to try FORGE’s unique multiplayer by pledging money on Kickstarter but never having to pay a dime if they’re not satisfied. As an added incentive, those who pre-purchase FORGE via Kickstarter now will receive a significant discount compared to the retail price.”
