Year 0 to Launch on Facebook as well as the Legendary Portal

Indie Games Developer Legendary Games will release their much anticipated massively multi-player online strategy game Year 0 into Open Beta on March 3rd on facebook as well as their own portal.

Year 0 is a multi player strategy game that uses the latest HTML5 technology to allow use on any internet browser equipped device, be it PC or Kindle. 

Jemma Smedley Community Manager said:  “We have had over 1000 people test the game so far and they really love the tone it is taking.  It is the first year after the apocalypse a long, ruinous war has ended but the fight for survival has just begun. In-game opponents are real people who are looking for the exact same things as you – resources and territories! You’ll need to manage those resources, plan out a strategy and recruit friends to be able to survive”

Year 0 will be a very different experience compared to most social games.  Most social and mobile apps are light, cute, targeted at women, non competitive and impossible to lose.  Year 0 is deliberately dark, gritty, targeted at core gamers and highly competitive

Ewan Lamont CEO of Legendary Games.  For too long developers and publishers have just made the assumption that facebook games are for middle aged women wanting to run farms and crush candy Facebook is a gaming platform just like any other there is no reason a core game can’t work.  If you are a fan of other strategy games such as XCOM, Total War, Advanced Wars and enjoy RPG’s and Sci-fi themed games, Year 0 will definitely be the perfect match for you and your friends.

•         Multi-player strategy gaming against other real people
