Siege Survival: Gloria Victis gets a demo for the Steam Game Festival, partners with Koch Media for upcoming release

From Press Release:

Larkspur, Calif. (Feb. 2, 2021) – Koch Media and Black Eye Games are delighted to announce a partnership for the upcoming digital PC release of Siege Survival: Gloria Victis, which will be released under Koch Media’s Ravenscourt games label.

Set in the Middle Ages, Siege Survival: Gloria Victis has you leading a group of civilians through surviving the brutal siege of their city. This management strategy game has you scouring the city for resources, crafting supplies, and keeping the troops well stocked to prevent the city from being overrun.

The game will be a key title in the Steam Game Festival: Spring Edition, which runs Feb. 3-9, 2021. The demo will feature newly updated and fully playable content, allowing you to experience the first days of the siege while taking residents through the basic challenges of gathering, crafting, and exploring part of the besieged city. The full campaign will take you through 30 in-game days.

“We’re delighted to be working with Koch Media. This partnership will give us access to a global market with dedicated teams in all the major territories,” said Black Eye Games’ CEO, Jan Grochowski. “The work on Siege Survival: Gloria Victis was started by an external team two years ago, with full support and supervision of Black Eye Games. Now after successfully merging both teams and starting the partnership with Koch Media, we secured the future development of both Siege Survival and our startup project, the Gloria Victis MMORPG. We hope the players trying our demo during the Steam Game Festival enjoy playing it as much as we’ve enjoyed making it.”

“We are delighted to team up with the Black Eye Games team in Lublin, Poland for this upcoming release,” said Daniel Emery, Sr. Global Communications Manager, Koch Media. “The medieval management survival game Siege Survival: Gloria Victis fits perfectly into our broad portfolio of quality titles for gamers under the new Ravenscourt portfolio. Our teams in Munich and around the world are going to support the dev team with all of our local and global publishing and marketing experience. ”

Game Overview

Set in the same medieval environment as the MMORPG, Gloria Victis – with its gritty realism, player driven economy, and warring factions with swords and shields a plenty – Siege Survival: Gloria Victis sees your country being invaded and under siege. Your group of civilians are trapped in the last remaining stronghold and are hanging on for dear life. Although you don’t participate in the fighting directly, the fate of the city is in your hands.

  • Scavenge – Venturing out from the safety of your keep, you must explore the ransacked city at night to collect raw materials, abandoned goods, and weapons to survive holding out long enough for reinforcements to drive away attackers.
  • Craft – You need better weapons, a roof over your head, hot food, and all the other trappings that survival entail, and the only way you’ll get these is if you and your team craft them. But resources are scarce, and you’ll need to manage them wisely to make it through in one piece.
  • Survive – Defending what’s left of your city are a few tired troops in dire need of arrows, weapons, armor, and medical attention. You need to keep this squad supplied and supported in every way possible ahead of their battles, lest enemies storm the keep. Not only that, but you have to avoid the enemy soldiers when you go out into no man’s land every night.

Surrounding all this are numerous morally perplexing choices, tasks, and a thoughtfully woven narrative that will take the player on a journey through Edring.

Siege Survival: Gloria Victis is slated for release in Q2 2021.
