Description

Ardent Seas combines Classical RTS gameplay with modern Naval and Amphibious Warfare, and gratuitous amounts of missiles. Featuring three unique factions, and a vast arsenal of modern and futuristic weapons and units.

History

Ardent Seas started as a side-project between Koen and Helge, while working on a different game. We saw that there aren't many classical RTS games focusing mostly on Naval combat, and decided that we had to change that.

We were going to develop a prototype, then launch a crowdfunding campaign, to buy Unity Pro licenses, grow the team, an pay the bills. Originally, the plan was to have a pure Navy game, since then, the game has grown into something much larger.

The game was going to have a single faction, 8-9 ships, and some aircraft. Since our humble beginnings, we've expanded the game into 3 factions, and over 20 units per faction, and are adding a single-player campaign.

Features

  • Three unique factions, each with three Subfactions
  • Single-player campaign
  • Player vs Computer skirmish
  • LAN and Online Multiplayer
  • Unit customization
  • Impressive warships, ranging from Gunboats to Supercarriers
