Gathering of Developers continues their one-a-day series of previews counting down to the upcoming E3 expo later this week. The latest game Mac users should be interested in is Stronghold, a genre blend between real-time strategy and city building titles from the folks at Firefly Studios. Many of the developers have worked on titles like Caesar III, so you may notice some similar elements in the screen shots now available in the preview. Here's the quick description given:

Stronghold is a unique cross between city builders such as Caesar III or Sim City and a RTS in the tradition of Command & Conquer and Age of Empires. Set in meieval Europe, players establish settlements, build and manage castles and engage in siege warfare. The game incorporates much more building and "community managing" than a traditional RTS, yet allows for a more intense combat experience than city builders have featured in the past.
Sound like a great combination, especially for the Mac market looking for a good new strategy title. You can be sure IMG will get the full scoop on Stronghold at E3 this week. For now, head over to the preview for screen shots and more information.
