Focus on Stronghold Enemies
8:42 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

CGOnline has posted a short but entertaining article which describes a few of the enemies of righteousness and order you will face in the upcoming RTS/City Builder Stronghold. The game is being developed by Firefly Studios, with MacSoft intending to publish a Mac version at some undetermined time down the road. Stronghold is an attempt to blend city building elements of games such as Caesar III (though in a Medieval setting) with a real-time strategy combat system. Here's a clip from the short article:

The Rat

Just turned twenty, The Rat (a.k.a. Duc de Puce) is the scrawniest of enemies to cross your path. He suffers from an acute acne problem and his huge nose and seemingly glued-back pointed ears along with unkempt tufts of hair and large front teeth make him look gaunt and give him his ratty appearance. The Rat is a highly-strung character with little self-confidence and no capacity to hide this fact. His general jittery nature sometimes gives way to short bursts of spasmodic twitching when he speaks. To top it all off, the Rat is a poor judge of character making him easy prey for anyone trying to lure the gullible fool into a trap.
For more information on the game, read through our past news on Stronghold and be sure to check out the CGO article. While there's no official release date for the Mac version of this game as of yet, we'll keep you posted on any new details from MacSoft.
