February 9th - A year under siege isn't to be sniffed at. Walls have been built, armies have been crushed and the peasants haven't bathed nearly enough. Today, independent studio Door 407 celebrate a year of Early Access development for their siege survival RTS Diplomacy Is Not An Option.

With the game's final launch planned for later this year (stay tuned for updates), they want to give players a peek at the chaos to come. Crank up the volume and load those trebuchets, then check out the EPIC BATTLE trailer below, and a more sedate look at fortress-building further down:


It has been an eventful year for Diplomacy Is Not An Option. Check out the development blog here for a breakdown on how the game has changed and evolved since its debut one year ago, plus Door 407's plans for the expanded and improved campaign mode and what else to expect in 2023.

Diplomacy Is Not An Option is available now on Steam, GOG and Humble for £19.99/$24.99/€20.99, with the price set to increase once the game leaves early access later this year. Join their official Discord channel for up-to-the-minute updates on development.

Also coming in 2023 from Door 407: URBO, a casual city-building puzzle game, with a demo available now as part of the Steam Next Fest. Give it a try; we think you'll like it!
