At The Gates


At The Gates is a 4x survival strategy game, developed by Jon Shafer.

In the game you control a horde of barbarians looking to take advantage of the crumbling Roman Empire, bringing about the Dark Ages.

One of the core game mechanics that sets it apart from similar 4x games like Civilization V is that the resources in the world are finite and if you use them all in your particular area, you’ll have no choice but to move to a different location. The world also transforms with the seasons, in a similar way to Endless Legend‘s summer and winter cycles. These changes make the game more unpredictable and always gives you a chance to overthrow the leader.
