BAFTA award-winning designer Jon Shafer today announced At the Gates is now for sale on Steam, the Humble Store, and directly from the At the Gates website. The game incorporates roguelike elements into 4X grand strategy and aims to provide a fresh new experience for fans of the genre.

When talking about the game, Shafer had this to say:

I’ve always been driven to innovate with my games and At the Gates is no exception. The genre has gotten a bit stale but it still has enormous potential, and that’s what I’m aiming to tap into by mixing roguelike elements into the classic 4X grand strategy formula.

Jon Shafer’s At the Gates can be purchased for 10% off the base $29.99/€29.99 price during release week. You can learn more about At The Gates by visiting
