Why Early Access?

“We launch Formata in Early Access to allow active players to make their impact in the development and completion of the final version.
Formata is a game with a unique gameplay, which is a mixture of RTS and Action genres. Early access gives us a good chance to test Formata's strength.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The full release is scheduled for 2017. This period may change if the community expresses a desire to see in the game something beyond the original plan.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Full version includes:
  • Gripping campaign consisting of 10+ unique levels with specific gameplay features
  • Custom map game mode
  • Multiplayer
  • Detailed match statistics
  • Improved command system including better control of units on a battlefield and strategy map
  • Improved AI system that allows player to get more battle experience

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Current version is absolutely playable and stable right now. It includes different levels. Player needs more than three hours to finish all levels succesfully.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

v.0.9.6 + Contest!

Hey there! Thank you for your feedback. Here is a new update. It includes some fixes (the list bellow) and a new map. Also, here is a contest which gives you a chance to get Formata Steam key for your friend. Read the rules.

Contest Rules
In this update I hid my sign on each map (8 maps = 8 signs). It's a white graffiti "Nezon" which can be placed on walls or other objects.
(!) This graffiti will disappear if you play with 'Global Vision' or 'Free camera'. So, to find them you have to start a match without this bonuses. So, you can find the sign only controlling a character with third person mode.

Do this steps to participate:
1. Find all signs and take screenshots of them all (8) .
2. Place these screenshots on your Steam account.
3. Put this description under each screenshot:
"Formata contest: *link on this page*"
4. Email me (nezon@mail.ru) with a subject "Formata Contest" and with a message with a link on your Steam account.
Pay attention, your account has to be open, so I can see your screenshots.

When the next update is come, I'll send all keys for all winners using email response. The number of winners is unlimited. The contest will finish with the next update. Hurry to participate. Good luck :)

Update List
- The bug when engineer does not react on the orders was fixed.
- AI squad decision system was improved. So, your AI opponent now controls his troops much more better.
- Bot character personal AI was improved. Now, they choose formation position better. Also, they run away from the battle (to heal themselves) better way.
- Some maps were balanced (economics).
- Some standard's stats were balanced.
- Some unit's stats were balanced (shields and weapons).
- The new map was added. Its name is "The Edge of Narbonensis".

Thank you for staying with us!
Enjoy Formata and wait for the next updates.

About This Game

Lead. Fight. Win.

Gain resources, build your own army to lead it into a battle!
Create your own strategy, survive in difficult conditions and then break through enemy's close formation to ruin their castles and reach the sole leadership on the map.

Do not forget about tactics when the fight is on! Good location and right formation will bring you an important victory, which immediately translates into an advantage for the whole war.

Catch your enemies by surprise, until they take a position and build a shield wall, provoke them to mess up the ranks, surround them and destroy completely! Catch up with those who run away and kill them all, because if you do not, they will return back with a sword in a hand!
Alternatively you can use your archers as your main power. While your strong infantry hold back the onslaught in a narrow passageway, a hail of arrows will turn the enemy hordes into heaps of corpses.

Duco. Pugno. Vinco.
